Historical Film of the Week

 The Control Room

The Control Room

From the 1960 NASA archives comes a film showing the launch of an Atlas ICBM carrying a payload of research instruments at Cape Canaveral, Florida.

The Launch Pad

The NASA film captures the rocket fire and lift-off as well as a shot of the engineers at some of the control stations. Terrific older film saved in the archives for today’s online audience.
