Many feared that NASA s Kennedy Space Center was in for a world of hurt this weekend as the category 4 Hurricane Matthew ploughed its way towards the Florida panhandle.

But the space agency says that damage was relatively minor and further inspections are taking place today.

After wobbling west and east on Friday morning, Matthew ended up taking a course towards the Atlantic and away from KSP.

The eye of the hurricane passed by the NASA facility from a distance of about 20 miles but it still endured sustained winds of 90 mph.

NASA s initial survey found that various buildings and vehicles mostly suffered minor damage.

Most importantly the enormous Vehicle Assembly Building, the Complex 39 launch pads and the active launch pads at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station all seem to be in good shape.
