Johnson Space Center

By Adam Cohen

Yesterday we had two flights to stay ahead of the storm - literally: Tropical Storm Don is expected to deliver a bunch of rain to Houston today. We also had a bit of a behind-the-scenes tour at the Johnson Space Center, and saw the mock-up facility, the neutral buoyancy lab (where they simulate moving in space by being underwater) and the control rooms for both the International Space Station and the historic Apollo mission control. Here I am standing at the communication officers panel.

I wonder if anyone ever pushed the button I'm pushing, which is......

Does anyone know if we had one of these in the TFTR Control Room, back in the day???
