A canister used to move space shuttle payloads was damaged at an assembly building Saturday when a crane apparently failed and dropped a 20-ton concrete weight on it, NASA reported. The weight hit the top of the 65-foot-tall carrier, "striking a door a glancing blow as it fell to the floor of the canister," a National Aeronautics and Space Administration statement said.
