I have yet to see any speculation that maybe the space shuttle Columbia could have possibly been hit by a small meteor while still in space.
Earth is continually being bombarded by micrometeors, and NASA does, indeed, make the shuttles strong enough to tolerate these tiny bits of rock, even travelling at hundreds of feet per second.
But who is to say that a larger meteor couldn't have hit it? One still small enough not to be noticed, especially if everyone is asleep or paying attention to other chores, but one big enough to do just enough damage to allow the possible introduction of the superheated plasma into the wing and left wheel areas.
It's possible.
