The Team Behind Project Apollo
Trusted Space

For the health and safety of guests and employees, the theater is open in a limited capacity. Guests are encouraged to practice social distancing when choosing seats.

At the heart of the Apollo space program and a remarkable decade of achievement was the team who worked in Mission Control. They came from the farms and smokestack towns of 20th-century America. They ranged from kids straight out of college to those toughened by military service. But from such ordinary beginnings, an extraordinary team was born. While at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, be sure to stop by Universe Theater, presented by Northrop Grumman for the newest film about the team behind Project Apollo, Mission Control: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo.

Hear the story through their testimony, and through the supporting voices of Apollo astronauts and modern NASA flight directors. The 45-minute film takes you from the faltering start of the program through to the glories of the Moon landings.

Mission Control: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo is available every day and is included with daily admission. Check the Daily Schedule for the show time and location upon your arrival.
