[i]The launch team is continuing to monitor severe weather in the area surrounding LC-39B. This afternoon, one of the three, nearly 600-foot lightning towers was struck. The lightning protection system works together to protect the rocket from lightning strikes.
The team is currently evaluating next steps and will conduct a series of procedures to make sure no systems were impacted. NASA will provide an update once the team has assessed the intensity of the strike and established a go forward plan.[/i]
[i]Fun fact about our lightning system: we have instrumentation that can pinpoint the exact location and intensity of lightning strikes. No hits to the ML have occurred.
This does not disrupt the count. The launch team has begun pre-planned troubleshooting procedures and will continue to work through them as the countdown continues.[/i]
