The team gets set up to film an interview with Steve Bales, who'd been the Guidance officer on duty during the Apollo 11 lunar landing. Known for his enthusiastic "Go!" calls and watching over the 1202 alarms, Bales began his career as a tour guide.

As author was working on his book Go, Flight, Rod Loe sent him these MOCR access badges, to give him an idea of what they looked like. It was a small gesture, but also a huge sign of how helpful many would be in putting the book, and eventually our film, together.

Fifty years ago today, the launch of Apollo 10 encountered "pogo" issues. After riding it out, the crew of Tom Stafford, Gene Cernan and John Young continued the final dress rehearsal for a lunar landing. In the MOCR, Snoopy and Charlie Brown watched over Capcomm Charlie Duke.

Good call on Gerry, but I believe that’s John Aaron rather than Sy. —

America had made it to the moon, and just a few weeks later, members of the mission control team made their way to the beach to celebrate. Who can you spot?

One of the highlights of our film-making journey was 's May 2017 premiere . A packed house of approximately 500 people were there, including many of the film's stars, NASA dignitaries … and at least one retired NASCAR driver!

Aviation has been a part of Chuck Deiterich's life for many years. During filming on his Texas property, Chuck showed the a grass landing strip just a few steps from his front door. It was used for the aircraft Chuck BUILT and flew himself.

If had his way, would've been approximately 27 hours long. He's still hoping for a Rick Houston Special Edition Associate Producer's Cut!

In life, it's all about the experiences … and nobody has lived that more than Jerry Bostick. Not only did he play a crucial role in the MOCR as chief of the Flight Dynamics Branch (shown here with Chuck Deiterich, right) he's also driven a race car and gone ziplining! Rock star!

Finally got round to watching "Mission Control The Unsung Heroes Of Apollo". What took me so long? It's an incredible piece of film making.

Best name ever in the MOCR? How about Apollo-era Telmu Merlin Merritt? Merlin eventually left NASA to go into Christian education and ministry.

"The people who inhabited (the MOCR) ... were amazing people, and they did amazing things. It's a shame that you can't preserve those people like you're going to preserve that room. Those people deserve that kind of place in history." -- Shuttle-era Flight Director Lee Briscoe
