What was that Strange Object that Forced the Postponement of the Shuttle Landing … Could it be K-Swiss?
The space shuttle Atlantis was forced into delaying its scheduled landing Wednesday due to bad weather and concerns that something crucial floated out of the craft.
NASA engineers think the object may have shook loose from the shuttle during the firing of jets in preparation for landing.
NASA thinks they know what the object is; however, we have a blown up version of the space shuttle object that shows exactly what the object may actually be.

UPDATE: Now it appears that there are many unidentified objects
NASA searched for the source of multiple unidentified objects spotted close to the shuttle Atlantis today and to see whether they were linked to an indication from an impact sensor in the right wing that recorded several small jolts overnight. (Houston Chronicle)
