NASA marks 50 years of Mission Control, plans Apollo room restoration
[i]NASA's historic Mission Control is soon to be made even more historic.
The agency's original control room in Houston, which first went active 50 years ago Wednesday (June 3), has been dormant since 1992. A National Historic Landmark, today it is a public tour stop and features the authentic consoles used for the Apollo 11 moon landing and Apollo 13 in-flight emergency, among 40 other space missions.
Now, a restoration effort is getting underway to make sure the room is around for many generations to come.[/i]
