Thanks for posting the news here.

Macabre that they found the cryogenic tank from Columbia two weeks after the last Space Shuttle mission. When I saw the picture of the tank I immediately remembered the crew picture of STS-107. What a loss. I really feel sorry for them and their surviving dependants.

About 60% of the Shuttle is still missing. But I think those finds like the cryogenic tank will remain a curiosity. I guess most parts of the Shuttle simply burned up in the atmosphere. But a lot of debries certainly are still hidden in some lakes, rivers and under grass here and there, from which most of them might decompose before somebody finds them.
