Aeromotive Services Inc. is running a fund raising campaign for the “Restoration of Houston Mission Control”. The goal is to complete this by July 31st 2017. The Mission Control Room has run into serious disrepair. Enthusiasts and educators around the world have seen this inspirational site go to ruin. With your help we can restore our passion and faith in this historical site.
The 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission to first land a man on the moon will take place in 2019. Its Mission Control — where NASA’s flight control team planned, trained and executed decades of Gemini, Apollo and early shuttle human spaceflight missions — is in acute need of restoration.
In preparation for the anniversary, Space Center Houston is launching a campaign to raise funds that will help support a major restoration of the room, also called the Mission Operations Control Room.
The restoration will feature the authentic consoles used to monitor nine Gemini and all Apollo flights, including the flight of Apollo 11 that first landed men on the moon, the flight of Apollo 13 that famously experienced an in-flight emergency and 40 other space.
