spaceflight.nasa will be carrying "cartoons" of the shuttle's left wing, intended to show those sensors that have been significant to date, i.e. it does not show all sensors, but rather those that failed (out of range low) and or reported increased temperature. Salient are wire routings, i.e. sensors failed in a sequence, and that sequence is a substantial set of fault indications; that set will be questionned in order to derive what happened and where. (If there were only a single spot where all the cables came together [this is not the case], then it would be strongly compelling to suspect an event at that spot.)
Included on this page is a photograph of "the underside of Columbia during its entry from mission STS-107 on Feb. 1, 2003, as it passed by the Starfire Optical Range [...] Kirtland Air Force Base, N. M. The image was taken at approximately 7:57 a.m. CST (1357 GMT)"
