Falling Window Cover Damages Discovery

taped2thedesk Re:It fell on its own? (360 comments)

The fact that they haven't checked whether the shuttle's vital parts are glued on tight or not is more than enough reason to cancel the launch.

The window COVER is meant to protect the shuttle window before launch. It's not a exactly a vital component, as it would be removed before launch anyway. It's not "glued on".
