    Gotta have been misreported then, I would say. I guess CNN is not the
    culprit, MilesO isn't known to mess up that badly on spaceflight topics.

    Well, since I'm a younger German I'm used to thinking metric, sorry if I'm
    messing up when thinking in imperial figures.

    That's certainly true, but they were also guesstimating based on halfway
    decent size estimates, and for a piece of ET insulation to weigh 6-7
    pounds, it would have to be _a lot_ larger than what can be seen of the
    piece in the footage.
