The legendary Mission Control room of NASA’s Apollo Moon landing missions needs your help.
The site is in a somewhat dilapidated condition, with frayed carpet, flickering fluorescents that need to be replaced, and missing computer components presumable pilfered by the occasional visitor.
A Kickstarter campaign has been started to raise money for a restoration effort that will see the storied control room brought back to its original glory, (probably with LED upgrades) and has shot pst it’s $250,000 fundraising goal to reach an impressive $388,000 with two more weeks remaining in the campaign.
One city donated over 3 million dollars directly to NASA. It was Webster, Texas, where many NASA workers reside, including several Apollo mission associates.
2019 will mark the 50th Anniversary of the first Apollo Moon Landing. Let’s tip our hats (and open our checkbooks, if able) to the people who first helped pave the way for mankind’s coming exodus into space.
