MESSAGE 11: CONTROLLING THE MISSIONS
We are about two months away from the projected July 28th launch of Expedition 53 which will be commanded by Citadel alumnus, Col. Randy Bresnik. When I went to Houston to observe a portion of his training for the mission, he showed us the two NASA Mission Controls at Johnson Space Center – the old, and the new. One is bustling with activity and every type of techonology imaginable that could be needed by the mission control team. The other one is quiet, but full of memories about the earliest achievements and challenges of our country’s space exploration. Take a look at both mission controls and don’t forget to start planning your launch watch party!
