Wind, Hail Batter Space Shuttle Launch Pad

NASA crews will perform a full survey of the space shuttle Endeavour today, just one day after high winds and hail battered the launch pad.

From CNN:

“No one was injured and initially no obvious damage was observed. The storm moved through the area quickly,” a NASA press release said.

Endeavour is scheduled to blast off to the International Space Station on April 19th. The space shuttle’s six astronauts are at the Kennedy Space Center for their launch dress rehearsal.
