Spaceflight Now reports that Kennedy Space Center (KSC) will remain closed until at least Thursday, pending the restoration of water services, but that commercial launch operators expect little or no delay to their operations. SpaceX President and CEO Gwynne Shotwell said that the company didn’t expect “a delay in our next launch from 39A,” the company’s launch pad at KSC, and that she was “frankly more worried about Launch Complex 40, where we’re finishing up” repairs and upgrades related to the explosion of a Falcon 9 rocket there last September. SpaceX’s next launch is scheduled for October at the earliest. (Image: Vehicle Assembly Building at NASAs Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Credit: Associated Press–©)
