NASA Severe flooding caused by heavy rains from the former Hurricane Harvey have closed NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston through Labor Day, September 4. The center had been closed to all but essential personnel since the storm started August 27 because of unprecedented rains and major flooding in the Houston area. Mission control for the International Space Station remains in operation, and there are no issues with ongoing testing of the James Webb Space Telescope in a thermal vacuum chamber there. Center officials later said that the center should be able to open September 5, but with some "workarounds" to deal with water leaks from damaged roofs at the center.
