The latest shuttle liftoff experienced a piece of debris falling off the fuel tank and hitting the shuttle. At this stage they don't believe it caused any significant damage.
What I'd like to know is, why were they able to make safe and reliable fuel tanks during most of the space race in the 60's and 70's and even 80's, but today they keep falling apart? It began with the Challenger disaster in 1986, and has kept on happening ever since.
They're spending too much money killing people than they are on building decent space technology. Idiots.
