Space Center Comes Through in Good Shape

By Florida Today

CAPE CANAVERAL -- Hurricane Ike tore up part of the roof of NASA's storied Mission Control Center in Houston, but Johnson Space Center appears to have come through the monster storm without major damage, officials said Saturday.

Still unclear is whether Ike will trigger a delay in the Oct. 10 launch of shuttle Atlantis on a Hubble Space Telescope servicing mission or the Nov. 12 launch of Endeavour on an International Space Station outfitting flight.
