"Discovery's astronauts observed a light-colored object about a foot-and-a-half-long float away from the right wing as well as an unusual protrusion on the tail rudder of their spacecraft this morning as they tested steering systems for Saturday's return to Earth.

Shuttle commander Mark Kelly and his six crewmates beamed videotape of the floating rectangular object and photographs of the protrusion to Mission Control this morning."

It's a spring clip from the back of the rudder speed brake. Not a big deal at all.
