Join Rick Houston, author of Go, Flight! The Unsung Heroes of Mission Control for a special presentation in our Sudekum Planetarium! The book focuses on the people who worked in that magnificent Houston control room during the Gemini, Apollo and early Shuttle eras.

After the presentation, don't miss a special screening of Mission Control: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo, a beautiful documentary film inspired by Rick's book. Rick graduated from DuPont High School in Hermitage and what is now Belmont University. He looks forward to this opportunity to host a showing of the film in his hometown, especially on the 50-year anniversary of the Apollo 13 accident.
