You can see Space Race history!
Beginning Monday (July 1) the restored Apollo Mission Control room at Houston's Johnson Space Center is open for you to see! It took 3 years for NASA to bring it back to look just like it did 50 years ago when NASA engineers used it to land Apollo 11 on the moon. Apollo Flight Director Gene Krantz spoke at Friday's (6-28) Grand Opening and said, "This was no ordinary place. This was where decisions were made. Precise. Crisp. 'Go' of 'No Go'!"
Mission Control has been restored all the way down to the carpet on the floor and glass ashtrays (remember ashtrays in the workplace?). The control room will be a part of NASA's Tram Tours as well as the Level 9 VIP Tours.
