Science: NASA Aerial Survey Shows Hurricane Irma’s Damage to Kennedy Space Center




An aerial survey reveals the damage that Hurricane Irma, which tore through Florida starting Sept. 10, dealt to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center (KSC). The storm is now a post-tropical cyclone heading northward. 


The space center in Cape Canaveral, Florida remains closed today (Sept. 13) as its damage assessment and recovery team (DART) — joined by KSC’s director, Bob Cabana — continues to catalog and mitigate the damage caused by the storm’s intense winds and rainfall. NASA closed KSC on Friday (Sept. 8) as Irma approached Florida.
