NASA's Johnson Space Center to Close for Winter Storm

HOUSTON – NASA's Johnson Space Center will be closed Friday morning due to the expected conditions caused by the winter storm. Plans call for the center to reopen at noon CST.

The closing allows Johnson employees to avoid treacherous road conditions. Temperatures in the area are predicted to stay below freezing until after 10 a.m. Friday, and roadways are expected to be icy.

Flight control of the International Space Station will continue from Houston and the Mission Control Center at Johnson will remain open during this period.
