Still No Official Word

Still no official word on the Space Shuttle's health, but there are some great articles out there looking at the big picture of what's going on. James Oberg writes on the new wealth of imagery and what it all means. One line I like:
The more we open our eyes, on shuttle flights and elsewhere in space, the more surprises we experience. But these results should hardly be reason for excessive worry. Keeping new eyes closed, and opting not to look, has always worried me a lot more.
We are bound to see more than we've seen in the past. But is it all bad? Or are we just getting better views of what has always happened in the past? I, too, prefer to keep my eyes open, if for nothing more than the view.
