Historic Mission Control

This is it. Located in Building 30 of the Johnson Space Center, this is the facility where NASA monitored nine Gemini and all Apollo missions, including the historic Apollo 11 trip to the moon. In fact, from this room the NASA team exercised full mission control of Apollo 11 from launch and liftoff at the Kennedy Space Center to splashdown in the Pacific Ocean. You can feel the history from the monitors to the rotary dials. The truth is, there’s more technology in a modern watch than there was in this room in 1969. Impossible.
