Meanwhile, President Bush will be briefed today about the loss of the shuttle.
NASA's administrator will meet with Bush at the White House to discuss recovery efforts and the investigation.

IT'S THE JOB OF INVESTIGATORS TO FIND OUT WHY THEY DIED. NOT BEING ABLE TO ANALYZE ALL THE PIECES NASA IS CONCENTRATING ON THE DATA COLLECTED BEFORE CONTACT WAS LOST. THE INITIAL INDICATION IS THERE WAS SOMETHING WRONG WITH LEFT SIDE OF THE CRAFT.... LEADING TO THE FAILURE OF SEVERAL SENSORS.

Temperature rose 60 degrees over five minutes." :12 OR 19:07 "the left brakeline, strut actuator and uplock actuator temperature rose significantly, 20 to 30 degrees in five minutes."
WHILE NO CONCLUSIONS HAVE BEEN REACHED INVESTIGATORS ARE LOOKING TO SEE IF THE TEMPERATURE RISE WAS CAUSED BY DAMAGE DONE.... POSSIBLY TO A HEAT-SHIELD TILE, DURING TAKEOFF. THIS PICTURE RELEASED BY NASA, SEEMS TO SHOW DEBRIS STRIKING THE BOTTOM PANEL OF THE WING. ))

Meantime, NASA is warning people against trying to sell any of the shuttle debris on E-Bay. A space agency spokesman says all of the shuttle parts are government property.
