    Found something on chron.com - "A mystery solved Astronaut Mike Fossum, who was watching through a window with a camera equipped with a telephoto lens, may have prevented some prolonged distress by snapping photos as the object floated off behind the right wing. In Mission Control, NASA mobilized imagery experts to pore over his pictures as well as videotape of what appeared to be a fresh protrusion from the rudder on the shuttle's tail. Within four hours, experts identified the floating object as one of several V-shaped metal clips %u2014 called spring tabs and just 2 1/2 inches long %u2014 that protect the rudder from the billowing fire ball generated by the shuttle at liftoff. The section is not threatened by high heat during the descent to Earth. The protrusion was a thin piece of heat shielding called a split line thermal barrier. While not out of place, the flexible shielding that fits between the two halves of the rudder simply moved into the astronauts' field of view for the first time during Friday's steering system test. "We have reviewed these items the crew saw and determined neither this protrusion nor the loss of the spring tab will be an issue for us," LeRoy Cain, chairman of NASA's mission management team, said at a news briefing. "We have determined the vehicle is completely safe, ready for de-orbit, entry and landing." During a September 2006 mission, astronauts aboard the shuttle Atlantis spotted a mysterious object float away. The Atlantis crew spent an extra day in orbit while experts looked for an explanation. Fossum's camera surveillance, and the video gathered by his colleagues, avoided a similar delay this time, according to Cain. "We were very fortunate the crew was on its toes. They got some great imagery and gave us some great verbal reports," Cain said. "The team on the ground came together very quickly. We worked this very thoroughly in a relative short period of time." Engineers believe the metal clip broke free of its welds during Discovery's thunderous climb to orbit. When the rudder was moved and opened slightly during Friday's checkout, the clip dislodged and floated away. "We were impressed at how quickly and with the quality of the work they were able to do in a short amount of time," Kelly said of Mission Control during a brief mid-day news interview. The astronauts were concerned for only a brief time, Discovery's skipper said. "Fortunately, Mike took some good pictures of it and sent them to the ground within a couple of minutes," he told CBS News. "It's really not a concern at all."
