Restored Apollo Mission Control »

Lee Hutchinson, writing at Ars Technica about a huge project in Houston:

For the past two years, historians and engineers from the Kansas Cosmosphere’s Spaceworks team have been lovingly restoring and detailing the 1,200-pound (544kg) historic sage green Ford-Philco consoles that populated the control room—repairing damage from decades of casual neglect and also adding in the correct control panels so that each console now correctly mirrors how it would have been configured for an Apollo flight.

These photos are amazing. I really want to get to Texas and see this.
