A Moment in Time

In this episode of Terranauts we explore the world of NASA's Mission Control Centre as it was in 1995. At that time, Mission Control was still being performed out of the same building and the same control room as it had been since 1964 when control of manned spaceflight missions had moved from Cape Canaveral to the Manned Space Center in Houston. This was the building from which NASA had gone to the moon. Over the course of 30 years many of the details had changed, but a lot had also stayed the same. But change was coming in the form of a new control centre, new technologies and new partnerships and ways of getting to and staying in space. But today we will take a moment to see what the world of Mission Control looked like, when I spent my first working shift there in February 1995.
