ChronoPoints | Mercury Control Center
ChronoPoints is an initiative at the University of Central Florida’s Institute for Simulation and Training dedicated to digitally documenting historically significant mid-century structures and artifacts. Our mission is to record a “life history” through the capture of digital data and by contextualizing it through contemporaneous photographs, documents, and oral histories of individuals associated with the artifact or building.

About This Project

ChronoPoints laser scanned the consoles utilized at the Mercury Control Center (MCC) at Cape Canaveral for manned flights from Alan Shepard’s Mercury-Restone suborbital through Gemini III.  The consoles were transferred to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in 1999, where they currently reside.
