[02 Jan 2000] According to NASA: “Following the transition to the Year 2000 in the Pacific Time Zone, NASA continues to be ‘green,’ meaning Agency systems have not been substantively affected by any problems during the year-end transition.
During the primary monitoring period (8 a.m. EST Dec. 31 through 3 a.m.
EST Jan. 1) the Agency suffered a few minor anomalies that were easily
fixed. Only one, involving a piece of planning software, appeared to be
Y2K related, and it did not affect any mission-critical systems.”
