I do wish that NASA releases would specify what US time zone the event times relate to.
Why not - as usual - in UTC ?

UTC would be ideal, but this is NASA that we are dealing with, so we should expect US time zones to be used.   But sometimes US material quotes ET (for Kennedy), sometimes MT (for Houston) and sometimes PT (JPL or just to confuse the hell out of us!) without specifying which zone is being used.

Houston is CT. So, yeah, using UTC would avoid confusion like that.

We can conclude that anik has better information than NASA.
