As external news sites may now be linking to the original thread, I have closed that topic and will only update it with new information released by the MMT.

I have moved the feedback to the thread to this post, which will remain open.

Nice job, Robert!!!!

Maybe NASA needs to get Burt Rutan on the job and start working with composite material.

With regards to the cracked foam, I wish NASA would not allow the 24-hour news channels to exaggerate the significance - if any - of this issue.
They could easily have issued a statement via their many PR people at KSC. Instead, for much of the day we had to endure ill-informed, doom-laden and subjective rubbish from Sky News, here in the UK, CNN International and silly Fox News that Discovery could be in jeopardy.
Next time NASA, get your spokespeople out to counter such nonsense.

Hey Robert,

It looks like NASA finally figured out what you and the Orlando Sentinel had figured out days ago! Note the illustration of the tank...
