External Tank 120 falls away from Space Shuttle Discovery as a digital camera automatically captures detailed images of the tank for analysis by imagery experts in Mission Control. This image shows little foam loss from the tank except for one small divot near the triangular shaped bipod attach fitting. The divot posed no threat of damage to Discovery.
