[i]The massive flame deflector below the shuttle Atlantis' mobile launch platform was damaged during liftoff Monday, but officials said Tuesday a preliminary assessment indicates no impact on plans to launch the shuttle Endeavour from the same pad on June 13.
"The SRB flame deflector, there's about a 25-square-foot area on the north side where (a heat resistant coating) came off," a NASA spokeswoman said. "They had some pneumatic lines that were damaged."
While inspections are still in progress, she said, "right now, they don't see any indications there will be an impact on the June launch."[/i]
