Operations Management Room Console

During a Space Shuttle countdown, senior NASA officials not directly involved with the activity - including the NASA Administrator - were able to monitor events in the Launch Control Center from within the Operations Management Room, a glassed off area located inside each of the four Firing Rooms at the Kennedy Space Center. Each manager sat at a console just like this one and was able to plug in a headset to be able to listen in on all the communication loops used by the Launch Director and others supporting the countdown. This particular console came from Firing Room 3, where more than 50 missions dating back to Apollo were launched from.
