It was 20 minutes past one in the morning, and Jihoon sat hunched against his black swivel chair. A series of new codes flashed across the screen as he let out a deep sigh. He may be a professional hacker, but his opponent today was the nation’s most complicated system. It was a level of difficulty he had never faced before and currently, he was struggling with even the basic steps.

“Hyung, I’m at the door to the control room, what do I do now?”

Mingyu’s voice from the walkie talkie alerted him. He had to act fast, any delay and their mission could be aborted.

     Ever wonder who astronauts are talking to when they say “Houston”? Here we are. The “White Flight Control Room” at NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, housed Mission Control for every shuttle flight after STS-70, which launched in July of 1995. It was renovated in 2014 for future use with the SLS program, which will ultimately fly to Mars.

     It may be interesting to compare this modern facility with the Mercury Control Center, which I covered in a previous post (click here to view). The Mercury Control Center, and the inception of “Mission Control”, was headed by Christopher Craft, whose name now graces the side of the building which houses the White Flight Control Room.

     While standing in places like the White Flight Control Room, I often think, “If these walls could talk~”. I didn’t have that feeling here. This was my generation’s flight control room. I followed the drama that unfolded here via live TV. Instead, I thought to myself about what future drama might happen here. I can’t wait to see.

     So, there you have it. When astronauts are standing on Mars, and begin a radio transmission with the word, “Houston”, you’ll know what room they’re speaking to.

With a huff, you jumped down from your A-Wing, yanking the helmet off of your head. It had been a month and a half since you’d last seen the rebel base and you were tired, sore and in need of a shower after a long flight back from the Outer Rim. You took a moment to congratulate and debrief your squadron before making your way into the heart of the base to check in.

            “They’re targeting all major cities,” Nat announced.

           The team nodded, looking at the map of predicted points. This group was bouncing from place to place, and you had to stop them, fast.

           "We’ll split up,“ Steve commanded. “Stark and Thor; Romanov, Banner, and Barton; Maximoffs., Y/N and myself.”

           Everyone looked at Steve in surprise. You were usually assigned to go alone. It was unusual to hear that you were working with Steve on this mission.

Athena has landed in the ancient rocky southern hemisphere of Mars!

This little girl is equipped with seismic readers, a barometer, a temperature gauge, 2 communication redundancies, a camera, 2 floodlights, 6 wheels, 10 solar panels, and a BLISTERING top speed of about 30/mph

She landed somewhere in Noachis Terra, a mountainous crater speckled region. The plan is to take her on a short trip over to the nearby smooth lowland of Hellas Planitia, which contains within it the lowest point on mars. This should be fantastic for seismic readings.

It took me a while to plan this mission. I actually had to send a satellite to a polar orbit around mars before I could send Athena; that way she’s able to communicate with MOCR (the mission operations control room) to be remotely controlled. It was also useful because it allowed me to scout potential mission locations.

Remembering  Flight To The Moon at Magic Kingdom

Flight To The Moon opened in Tomorrowland at Walt Disney World in December 24, 1971, a little behind the October 1,1971 opening day of Magic Kingdom. After a brief introduction in a holding area, guests would enter the preshow room: Mission Control. Here guests got an inside look into their upcoming flight and met the director of operations, Mr. Tom Morrow. Guests exited Mission Control to head to the launch pad and their flight vehicle. The layout of the flight vehicle was a circular space with rows of seats surrounding a recessed center of the room. On the walls were multiple viewing screens as well as one on the ceiling and floor. As the craft launched into space the entire room, including the seats, began to shake with audible force. A few moments later as the craft exited Earth’s atmosphere, the seats changed to simulate the change in gravity. Guests were treated to a flight over the moon’s surface which they saw from the bottom “window” of the craft. While there, they were directed to look at the sun. As the importance of the mass of burning gasses was discussed, the craft suddenly becomes the victim of a meteor shower in space. The craft began to shake as sirens blasted but luckily, everyone is unharmed. Unfortunately, to keep guests from any more danger, it was then time to go back home to Earth. After just under 4 years of operation (and the end of Americans’ fascination with manned missions to the moon), Flight to the Moon sent its last guests on the journey in Spring of 1975. Just a few months later, the attraction re-opened with a similar premise and ride experience as Mission to Mars.

The original control room at Johnson Space Center was in use from the facility’s opening in 1965 to 1992. Every U.S. manned space mission was monitored and controlled from this room, including six Apollo lunar landing missions

By 1992, technology was advancing so rapidly that the facility could no longer be kept up to date. A new Mission Operations Control Room was opened in 1992 and is still in use to this day.

January 8, 2016.

(9 Feb. 1971) — Flight controllers in the Mission Operations Control Room (MOCR) of the Mission Control Center (MCC) view a colorful display which signals the successful splashdown and recovery of the crew of the Apollo 14 lunar landing mission. The MOCR’s large screen at right shows a television shot aboard the USS New Orleans, Apollo 14 prime recovery ship.

<Take me to the Commander> Bucky orders, pushing through the metal doors and past the single guard, who stares at him, dumbfounded. It’s a little past 2AM, the outpost sheltered deep in the industrial district of San Francisco, hidden in layers of cinderblock and cement: not a packing plant anymore, though it might have been once, with conveyor belts and metal rigging lining the ceiling.

The guard, recovered somewhat, is whispering in frantic Russian into a comm clipped on his shoulder. He catches Bucky watching, swallows visibly, and points to a door at the left of the room. <Mission control is down that way.>

Bucky Barnes would smile meanly, but the Soldier doesn’t.

All activity room stops comically when he walks in, the heavy rubber fall of his boots on the floor louder than ever, echoing against the bare walls. In the center of the room is a low table with papers spread across it, a laptop computer, and around it three men who look vaguely familiar. One wears a long white coat, and Bucky’s lips curl derisively under his mask. They stare at each other for a few seconds before one of the men appears to shake himself out of his surprise, and barks: “Soldier, report!”

English this time. “Targets have been eliminated,” Bucky says. He reaches into a pocket of his vest and pulls out a scrap of fabric, tossing it on the table. “They have been disposed of. I am ready for processing.” One man reaches over and plucks the piece of navy cloth off the table, holding it up: a squarish block of blue kevlar, the tip of a white star in one corner.

“What did you do with the bodies?”

“It doesn’t matter.”

White-coat man is sweating. “It does matter! We will need proof, the Commander will have questions - ”

“Where is the Commander?” Bucky asks, keeping his voice gravelly and level. The men exchange a glance.

“Upstairs.”

“Thank you,” Bucky says, and unholsters his gun.

*

<Someone is going to notice that,> a wry voice in the dark says a little later. Bucky slows, not really up to answering, but willing to let the woman peel herself out of the darkness and fall into step beside him. She has been tailing him since Chicago, carefully obvious enough for him to know she’s been around, but keeping a distance. He wonders what’s changed.

“Factory fire,” he grunts. “Commonplace.”

<How tragic.>

They walk another couple blocks until they reach the alley where Bucky’s stowed his pickup. The woman - Natasha, his brain supplies, finally - quirks up a corner of her mouth looking at it, and Bucky resists the urge to sigh. <You ready to come in yet?>

“No,” Bucky answers, shedding layers of leather and metal into a duffle bag he keeps in the bed. He’s laid a thick pad of canvas along the bottom, but it still rattles too loudly for his taste; he’ll need to find some other kind of vehicle for his next run. It’s a problem for tomorrow, he decides. Tonight’s problem is 5’4”, speaks Russian without an accent, and is twirling a cellphone in her hands watching him pack. He grins at her, showing his teeth, and lets the words roll off his tongue

<A good Soldier always completes his mission.>

This Day in Disney History

October 4, 1993:  Mission to Mars in Tomorrowland closes at the end of the day.

Basically a modified version of Flight to the Moon, Mission to Mars used the same circular theater as it’s successor, Alien Encounter.  After the preshow (pictured above) you board your spacecraft and take a simulated flight to Mars.  

Do you think some of the Mission Control panels look familiar?  Disney LOVES to recycle, and you’ve probably seen some of them in the Mission Control room in the queue for Mission: Space at Epcot!
