Comment Possible rocket debris? (Score 2, Interesting) 151

I was up too darn late watching the Nasa TV press conference. Questions were asked about maybe the debris source being space junk from an old rocket;

"NASA also revealed that Endeavour came within a mile of a piece of floating space junk during the launch. The garbage was an old Delta rocket body that has been orbiting for years, NASA said". sci-shuttle11aug11,1,1712330.story?coll=la-headlin es-nation&ctrack=2&cset=true

Tracked back to a '70s launch apparently, though I can't confirm this apart from what I heard.
