    I've been watching over and over the video of the "insulation" (looked
    more like ice to me) impacting the underside of the port wing and
    shattering into a cloud of particles.
    One thought..could this debris have somehow damaged the covers to the
    port undercarriage well, say displaced/damaged the cover?
    Would this tie in with the temp. readings and then drop outs of the
    sensors in this area of the wing?
    I would imagine (from my model of the shuttle) that damage here would
    pretty much be a route 1 access for high temp plasma into the main
    structural members of the port wing assembly.
