NASA Says Johnson Space Center Will Reopen Monday

Mission Control Escaped Brunt Of Hurricane Ike

NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston is scheduled to reopen Monday, September 22, ending its closure related to Hurricane Ike.

As ANN reported, Johnson shut down September 11 as Ike approached the Texas coast.

International Space Station flight control is scheduled to resume from Mission Control in Houston during the morning of Friday, September 19. Station flight control was transferred to a backup facility near Austin, TX and later to another facility at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, AL.

NASA says the Mission Control Center and other key Johnson facilities are largely unscathed, partly because of extensive preparations and the work of a hurricane rideout team of more than 60 people. However, some center buildings suffered roof, window and facade damage.

Several light poles were downed, as were a number of trees. The damage assessment and cleanup continues.
