Recovery efforts are underway at NASA’s Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans, which was hit by a tornado Feb. 7. In accounting for all 3,500 employees at the facility, officials reported five suffered minor injuries. Buildings, structures and parked cars sustained damage, but there was no reported damage to hardware for NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, Orion spacecraft, or the barge Pegasus docked at Michoud. NASA will release updates on the facility’s status as they become available. Also, SpaceX Launch Targeted for Mid-February, SLS Booster Hardware Arrives at KSC, and NASA Aerospace Days!
