Photos of the damaged Endeavor tiles

I’m more visual, so while I heard about the damaged tiles on the space shuttle Endeavor, it didn’t really hit home until I stumbled across a few photos.

Imagine hurtling yourself through space, the only thing seperating you from the inexhaustive expanse of nothingness is a few thermal tiles. Then imagine those tiles damaged. Seems crazy that a few nicks in the tile could be so critical.

My thoughts are with the engineers who have to fix that one, and a little bit of courage goes to the crew aboard the Endeavor. Come home safely!

Here’s the photos.
