    No I'm saying it sound legit but lets see it before believing it... lets see what NASA says about it.

    I was actually wondering if we'll see the picture. CNN seemed to think that this telescope was for looking at foreign satalites. In this case the picture may be classified.
    But then CNN also said that the shuttle travels 18 times the speed of light.

    Space junk is another likely scenerio. If paint flecks travel fast enough to star a shuttle window, imagine what a bolt or nut could do...

    thou the chances of a piece of space junk hitting in the same spot that that piece of foam hit is not as likely. 2 bad things happening on the same spot is only the root of the chance of just one. If you role 2 dice and try to get 2 ones (snake eyes) that’s is the square root as likely of get just 1 one. I say based on the evidence at this time the most likely cause was that piece of foam. With that piece of foam hitting and (the possible) photos of the damage in the same spot the foam theory is now very strong now.

    Okay, fetus ... Just call me Chag.

    Doubt they'll release the pictures even though NASA messed up with
    the launch pictures. Per CNN: Key launch pictures not in focus!

    http://www.cnn.com/2003/TECH/space/02/06/s...tion/index.html

    DOD has a thing about the Air Force releasing any pictures. The resolution
    is top secret.
