Moscow Monitors ISS While Houston Braces for Rita 21

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."
