Collection Item Summary:
These consoles contain several electronic data displays from the firing room at the NASA Kennedy Space Center. They were used to manage the launch the Space Shuttle. In that room, several rows of similar consoles were staffed to monitor critical parameters before a launch. This station monitored parameters of the Shuttle's liquid oxygen tank. Controllers seated at these stations communicated with a headset and telephone connection.
NASA transferred this unit to the Museum in 2012.
