Blue Dot 48: Go Flight!

Mar 16, 2017

“Okay, Houston, we’ve had a problem here…” Those words have become part of our pop cultural history. Just like, “Houston, Tranquility Base here…the Eagle has landed.” During the halcyon days of Project Apollo in the late 1960s and early 70s, Houston was a call sign that referred to the Mission Operations Control Room at the Johnson Space Center in Houston. We will talk to Houston ourselves, though not the one you might be thinking of…Rick Houston is the author of Go Flight! An inside look at the history and culture of the legendary space center. It’s all new and all blue with a little red and white thrown in for good measure.
