Nope. That's the so called Shoulder brace, released during initial deploy activities of the RMS. Only needed for launch.

Leroy Cain now speaking about damage to pad.

5300 bricks missing in east flame trench.

No impacts to bottom of MLP - therefore no evidence of flying debris.

Some more great shots from Shuttle - Here are a couple of what is an ancient meteor impact site in Quebec Canada that has a Ring Lake around it - Quite distinctive from orbit.

That is the Manicouagan Crater and a nice shot of it!

Anyone know if some flyaround images have been released?

I'm eager to see the new look of ISS. This flyaround they finally had all the arrays at about the same position to make for some very nice looking views  :)
