More Foam Shedding

NASA not concerned about foam loss, Orlando Sentinel

"Speaking now in a news conference, managers say that engineers already have noted foam loss in two separate incidents. Shuttle program manager Wayne Hale said three or four small objects appear to break off the tank about 2 minutes, 47 seconds into flight.

Then more debris is seen liberating from the tank about 4 minutes, 50 seconds after launch."
