Technical NASA Links

For those interested in technical aspects, here's some references:

STS-107 Mission page
KSC Landing News page
Minute-by-minute log of spaceflight operations during entry
NASA Human Spaceflight site (currently swamped in traffic)
Space Shuttle Technical Reference for news and public, including:
- Landing Operations procedures summary
- Thermal Protection System including orbiter surface tile descriptions; debris on takeoff hit tiles on the left wing, but experts believed damage was not a problem.
- Landing Gear Systems on the orbiter; one of the last communications regarded pressure problems in this area.
