Moscow Monitors ISS While Houston Braces for Rita 21

Posted by ScuttleMonkey
from the duck-and-cover dept.
It doesn't come easy writes "The Johnson Space Center is shutting down while Houston waits for Rita to land. In the meanwhile, Mission Control has moved operations to a Russian control team outside Moscow for the duration of the storm. From the announcement: 'Ground supervison of the station has been shared by the U.S. and Russian control centers since orbital assembly began in 1998. A small rotating team of American experts is always in residence at the Russian control facility, which is active around the clock.' Here's hoping Houston fares better than New Orleans."
