Like Trying to Plug a Dike
NASA's embarassment continues. An astronaut yanked out the gap fillers and now might have to do another spacewalk to fix thermal blanket. Engineers are sure to spend many sleepless nights worrying that this new "problem" will raise the danger of the astronauts by 0.0006%. Because we can't have any chance of disaster with people traveling at thousands of miles per hour 100 miles above the earth. At this rate if the shuttle's toilet gets plugged they'll just have to abandon Discovery and let it burn in the atmosphere. Hey, that might not be such a bad idea.
