JSC2009-E-119287 (11 May 2009) --- A medium close still shot of the flame trench area at Launch Pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center has been marked to indicate three different areas where minor damage was detected during STS-125 post-launch inspections. Two areas of delaminating flank a area where studs are partially exposed. While speaking during a press briefing, LeRoy Cain, deputy program manager for STS, showed this visual but expressed that NASA has no major concern over the damage at this time.
