Kraft Jr., former JSC director and NASA's first flight director; Milt Heflin, deputy director of Mission Operations; Michael Coats, JSC director; John McCullough (at lectern, background), lead International Space Station flight director; and Allen Flynt, director of Mission Operations, cut a ribbon, formally opening a new work area for space station flight controllers. The new home offers increased technical capabilities, more workspace and a long, distinguished history. The newly updated facility is just down the hall from its predecessor at NASA's Johnson Space Center, Houston. Known as Flight Control Room 1, it was first used to control a space flight 38 years ago today, the mission of Apollo 7 launched Oct. 11, 1968. It was one of two control rooms for NASA's manned missions. The room it replaces in its new ISS role, designated the Blue Flight Control Room, had been in operation since the first station component was launched in 1998.
