NASA’s moon rocket on track for Wednesday launch attempt

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — NASA is counting down to this week’s planned liftoff of its new moon rocket after an evaluation of hurricane damage. Hurricane Nicole’s high winds last Thursday caused a 10-foot section of caulking to peel away near the capsule at the top of the rocket. Mission managers decided the damage provided little extra risk to the flight. Liftoff from Florida’s Kennedy Space Center is scheduled for early Wednesday. It’s the first test flight for the 322-foot rocket and will send a capsule with test dummies into lunar orbit.
