After the foam damaged Columbia's wing, was there drag on the vehicle as it ascended? Did the computers adjust for this? Was air entering the wing that could have been picked up by sensors?

I know as Columbia descended, air was penetrating the wing and the computers were adjusting but was curious about the effects as Columbia ascended.

There were apparently some anomalies noticed upon ascent.

I think there is a website and report available at columbiadisaster.info with more information.

All times are CT (US)
