CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – On Launch Pad 17-B at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, workers complete the mating of the two fairing segments around NASA's Kepler spacecraft for encapsulation. The fairing is a molded structure that fits flush with the outside surface of the rocket and forms an aerodynamically smooth nose cone, protecting the spacecraft during launch and ascent. The liftoff of Kepler aboard the Delta II rocket is currently targeted for launch in a window extending 10:49 to 10:52 p.m. EST March 6 from Pad 17-B. Kepler is designed to survey more than 100,000 stars in our galaxy to determine the number of sun-like stars that have Earth-size and larger planets, including those that lie in a star's "habitable zone," a region where liquid water, and perhaps life, could exist. If these Earth-size worlds do exist around stars like our sun, Kepler is expected to be the first to find them and the first to measure how common they are.

GROUND EFFECTS AND BUILDING DAMAGE On the east side of Howard Street near 17th Street in San Francisco all houses shifted toward the left. The three-story house dropped from its south foundation wall and leaned against the neighboring house. This area, called the Mission District, was a "fill" area along the former course of Mission Creek. It was an area of high-intensity shaking exceeded only by areas in close proximity to the fault. For blocks the land surface and paved streets were thrown into wave forms trending east and west. U.S. Geological Survey (Possible photograph by G.K. Gilbert)
