Taking a precautionary measure to prevent the coronavirus from spreading, NASA has announced the closure of two rocket production and testing centers after an engineer at one center tested positive for the virus. Both the Stennis Space Center in southern Mississippi and the Michoud Assembly Facility about 40 miles away in New Orleans will temporarily stop production, NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said.
