STS-116: logo (NASA) An inspection of the exterior of the shuttle Discovery on Sunday turned up no evidence of damage to its tiles and panels sustained during its launch Saturday night. Astronauts used a boom attached to the shuttle's robot arm to scan the upper surfaces of the shuttle, as well as the leading edges of its wings and its nose cap. Accelerometer data collected during the shuttle's launch registered four minor debris hits during launch, but none strong enough to cause any damage. Discovery is scheduled to dock with the ISS on Monday at 5:05 pm EST (2205 GMT).
