The Space Shuttle Hobbles Onward, editorial, NY Times

"NASA will now look for quick fixes to reduce debris-shedding in the next few flights while it pursues a longer-term solution. But it has become increasingly clear that the shuttles design, which puts a huge external fuel tank insulated with foam above a fragile spacecraft, is fundamentally flawed. This problem wont be solved until the shuttles are replaced with a new vehicle."
