Picture: Bird Vs. Space Shuttle Discovery

Image hosted by

Hmm, what are the odds of this happening?

NASA released an image Tuesday night of space shuttle Discovery striking a bird seconds after Tuesday's launch...

"It happened just as Discovery was clearing the launch pad and it is too early to tell whether that strike caused any flight safety issues,"...

The image was captured by one of more than 100 cameras photographing every angle of Discovery's launch.

"Without ever having seen these camera angles before, they don't know if debris has always shed off or if they had hit birds in the past,"..."This is their first glimpse and of course they will do inspections later this week to see if that caused any type of dangerous situation."
