    Well I don't know what this shows, but it certainly doesn't seem to show a
    Space Shuttle wing. Neither does this have the markings of a Shuttle wing,
    nor the shapes, nor the special characteristics that were unique to
    Columbia and thus would help identifying it here. All I'm seeing is a beige
    blob with blackish smear that could be anything, just not a Shuttle wing
    with "cracks" in it. At least that's what I make of it; I really have
    difficulties envisioning what this is supposed to be...
    If I got that page properly translated, this is supposed to originate from
    the port side forward or aft CCTV cam, and I'd just be thrilled to learn
    how either camera is supposed to be able to take a good look at the wing.
    It's difficult enough already to see the wing from up in the crew
    compartment, let alone from down at the payload bay rim where those cameras
    are located. (Inquiring minds and all...)
    Would be interesting to see the full video sequence instead of a crummy
    JPEG capture frame, maybe that makes more sense. On the first and second
    look, I'd qualify this as baloney. Either edited at the Israeli TV station
    (such as when inserting canned footage of exterior views when Ramon and
    Sharon were talking about what Earth looked like from orbit), or completely
    misjudged and misidentified by someone upstream in the news channels.
    Either way, the terrible quality doesn't help.
    CU!	Markus
