"Mysterious" debris trails space shuttle

American astronauts returning from the international space station have noticed a long, slender object following the space shuttle Discovery. NASA has now identified it as "a thermal clip from the shuttle's brake system." The object is described as being about 1 1/2 feet long and "shiny." Remember when the space toilet malfunctioned? And they got two Russians to fix it? People on the ground: Beware of falling packages wrapped in foil.

And they said the Cold War is over.
