Astronomy NASA has reopened the Apollo 11 mission control center to the Moon

This is a historic moment for the American Space Agency, which is currently making intensive preparations for the new era of the Moon’s conquest. Artemis is to allow not only to return there, but also to live permanently.

Already on July 20, we will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the landing of people on the Silver Globe. The entire year 2019 will be on the pages of the history of the space industry as one of the most important, in which key decisions were made regarding the return to this close and fascinating object. On this occasion, NASA restored and opened for visitors the most important part of the Johnson Space Center, namely the control center of the Apollo 11 mission.

Jim Bridenstine, NASA administrator, said at the conference that it was a great moment for the United States and the home space industry. It was thanks to this place that the Americans could land successfully on the moon, and this showed to other countries what technological power they are in the world. Soon, until 2024, they have to prove it again, for the second time in history and for the first time in the 21st century, landing on the natural satellite of our planet, before other countries.

The engineers successfully meticulously recreated the appearance and functionality of the Apollo 11 mission control center in 1969. The opening of the object for visitors is to take place today, July 1. NASA has prepared a lot of surprises on the occasion of the anniversary of landing on the moon, so keep up with the official website of the agency and its numerous profiles on social networking sites.
