Default Apollo Mission Simulator

These photos were taken in 1966 when I was a member of the installation and de-bug team at the Manned Spacecraft Center. The entry ladder to the command module is visible. The geometric protrusions arond the command module contain the optics and mirrors for each the seven windows of the visual display systems. Three operators were needed to man the consoles. At this time, my camera was a Rolleiflex 2.8D.

These are some very neat photos. In 1966 I was either in 6th or 7th grade and had tons of NASA publications I would look at for hours. Very nice!

Its amazing what got accomplished when they were still working with hammers and rocks. Look how far we have come technology wise since those days. That whole room could now fit in the palm of your hand. With room left over to make calls and browse the internet. Great historic shots.

I still have my Yashica MAT 124G. Finding film for it is tough, but finding batteries is impossible.

Streets,

Great. De-bugging team you say. What program was used at the time?
