NASA is taking a close look at pictures of Space Shuttle Endeavour, and photos show damage to the black thermal tiles on the belly of the shuttle.

The gouges and nicks were spotted in pictures taken overnight as the shuttle did a slow backflip before docking with the International Space Station.

NASA official Leroy Cain says there's no cause for concern, but officials are continuing to assess the damage.
