Crew members aboard space shuttle Discovery are taking a look to see if there's any damage to the shuttle's wings and nose after yesterday's launch.
The maneuvers are expected to take seven hours, using a camera attached to Discovery's "arm." NASA officials say what may've been a one-and-a-half-inch piece of tile appeared to break away from the shuttle during liftoff.
A possible piece of foam insulation also seemed to fly off the external fuel tank. It didn't hit the shuttle, but astronauts have two packages of glue to make repairs, if needed.
Littleton-based Lockheed Martin Space Systems developed the silicon-based glue for use in filling cracks or holes in heat-shielding tiles.
NASA (NASS'-uh) says the glue replaces the insulating capabilities of tile.
