JSC2006-E-43842 (6 Oct. 2006)--- Astronaut Julie Payette, spacecraft communicator (CAPCOM), and John McCullough, flight director, support the Expedition 14 mission. International Space Station flight controllers have this area as their new home with 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, 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. Photo credit: NASA
