Here is a description of the hydrogen tanks in the power reactant and storage distribution system:Source
...The hydrogen tanks also are identical. Both the inner pressure vessel and the outer shell are constructed of aluminum 2219. The inner vessel's diameter is 41.51 inches and the outer shell's is 45.5 inches....
45.5 inches is just about 4 feet. Plus, the tanks are insulated, so perhaps that's why the object that was found looks a bit "bumpy" -- not too mention the scum and lake sediment that may have collected on the object over the eight years it was underwater.

Probably an old ocean depth mine of some sort.
But...it's in a lake. Would they use those in a lake? IDK.

NASA was involved because authorities from Texas called them. But even NASA wasn't sure, and wanted some kind of confirmation before sending someone.

So that's where the swamp monster comes from, awesome. In all seriousness they warned us back in 2003 that we would be recovering pieces of Columbia (RIP) for years. It makes sense since Nacogdoches is where a lot of the debris was found that a piece would show up now and then.
