Blogging will be light as I work with the file decryptor. Here’s a post from last year that needs some love.

In the 1960’s the Johnson Space Center was built in Houston TX during the Lyndon Johnson Administration.  The center is where US space missions since the Gemini Program have been controlled.  Here’s a good look at Mission Control in Ars Technica.

Baen published an account by somebody who actually worked in mission control so that we can get a feeling as to what it was like.

I’ve never visited JSC, but mission control seems like an interesting and dynamic place.
