The site where human spaceflight research (domestic and international), flight control, and training takes place, the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center is the Manned Spacecraft Center of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Situated in Houston, it consists of 100 buildings and is home to NASA’s astronaut corps. Popular for “Mission Control” (from the Gemini, Apollo, Skylab, Apollo–Soyuz, and Space Shuttle projects), it was constructed between 1962 and 1963. Today it hosts a variety of programs and exhibits through which visitors can learn about the history of space flight and the ongoing growth and development of space discovery programs.
