German term or phrase: Aluminiumstreben
Als permanente Lösung des Problems gilt - zumindest bei der Nasa - der Austausch von Aluminiumstreben am Außentank durch solche aus Titan. Dann könnte die Isolierschicht dünner ausfallen. Das Risiko, dass große Schaumstücke abplatzen, würde sinken.

Explanation:
Or aluminium struts in BE.

Shannon said NASA was balancing conflicting concerns. First, it wanted to assess whether the heated air that surrounds a shuttle on re-entry might damage aluminum struts, normally completely protected by the heat-shield tiles, in Endeavour's underside. Lengthy repairs might delay future flights and NASA has a mandate from the White House to finish the International Space Station in 2010 and retire the space shuttle fleet.
