- Plasma discharges
I would like to call your attention to this article concerning high
energy electrical phenomena in near space:
Please look towards the end of the article for reference to discharging
accumulations on space vehicles.

I misread, the article was talking about the charging of satellites
in geosynchronous orbit, and not low Earth orbit an re-entering
vehicles. I hope we get to see the picture that was supposedly taken
by the amateur photographer in California. I must say, the
circumstances seem a bit weird. He wants to remain anonymous, and he
doesn't want to publicly release the picture until NASA takes a look
at it. Meanwhile, NASA doesn't say a word about it directly, but
says yesterday that they are looking at "other things" than the foam
impact as the cause of the accident.
Then again, maybe I've just been hanging around the conspiracy
websites too much! :-/
