What would a hull breach look like?
#8
A search for "hypervelocity impact" returned http://www.cbsnews.com/news/navys-newest-weapon-kills-at-seven-times-the-speed-of-sound/ which has a dramatic image of what a projectile at Mach 7 can do to armor plate. Some deformation of the plates, and a whole lot of vaporization. At the higher speeds of orbital debris collisions I'd expect even more vaporization.
