NASA dedicates new benches of honor to veterans of Mission Control

A trio of new monuments at NASA’s home for human spaceflight pays tribute to the flight control teams of the past by inviting visitors to sit down and reflect on what was made possible from inside the Mission Control Center in Houston.
