Mission Operations Control Room Restoration Process.

While history repeatedly distinguishes the astronauts who became the first humans to walk on the Moon, equally remarkable are the people of Mission Control, without whom the missions would not have been possible. There was no computing or digital power than a present-day.

Mission Control celebrate the successful Moon Landing, 1969.

50 years ago, lead flight director Gene Kranz and his team, used Mission Operations Control room to communicate with Apollo 13 crew members. Kranz is known for successful efforts and bring the astronauts home safely.

Now after 50 years, NASA began the historic Mission control room restoration. From coffee mug to console.

In fact, the restoration project was conceived in 2013, started in November 2018 and plas was to complete it in July 2019. It will restore the Historic Mission control to its Apollo-Era condition, and will feature the authentic consoles used to monitor nine Gemini missions, all Apollo Moon missions, and 21 space shuttle missions. This embraces the Apollo 11 flight that first landed men on the moon, the Apollo 13 mission that legendarily experienced an in-flight emergency, and 40 other space missions. The $5 million endeavor was funded with a generous $3.1 million donation from the City of Webster, TX, and an added $400,000 matching of the Kickstarter Campaign run by Space Center Houston. The Kickstarter raised $525k in donations, and JSC added the remaining $1 million to complete the project.
