Debris Seen Hitting Discovery Shuttle During Launch

NASA said it’s impossible to eliminate falling launch debris.

How about change a bit the dynamics? Just look how close the Shuttle is to the bottom of the rockets that create the debris.

EVEN before Columbia blew up I had thought, YEARS AGO: “Jesus, isn’t that shuttle too close to the flames down below?” If the Shuttle was mounted a bit higher to the rockets, the debris hitting the shuttle would be much fewer IMHO.
