Mission control at Johnson Space Center (JSC) in Houston, TX was the central hub for mission operations in the Apollo era. NBC has a nice video news piece on how it’s been perfectly restored, now a museum, just as it was 50 years ago. Right down to the ash trays and slide rules. Image and source credit: NBC News.

    On this 50th anniversary, thinking about how much computing power is in many of today’s phones and tablets. And how they are being turned into toys. Coding? For what?, new emoji? “We can’t build our products in the U.S. because of the lack of skills and education.” Here’s a thought for Tim Cook, et al: How about sinking some money into scholarships? Instead of an expensive office building, how about a Steven Jobs School of Technology? How did we get through the entire US Missile and Space program of the 1950’s and 60’s? The majority of those involved in the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo programs had no formal engineering training and they built those marvelous craft that changed the history of mankind. We need to expect more from current technology companies and from ourselves.
