Statement of Significance (as of designation - October 3, 1985):
Represents the importance of the Johnson Space Center in the U.S. manned space-flight program. This control center was used to monitor 9 Gemini and all Apollo flights, Apollo-Soyuz, and all recent space shuttle flights. The center exercised full mission control of Apollo 11, from lift-off at the Kennedy Space Center, through the first landing of men on the moon in July 1969, to splashdown in the Pacific.

Condition:
There are no current threats to the landmark. It is in good condition.

The only recent change to MOCR-2 was replacement of the carpet due to wear. MOCR-1, which had been converted to a science center related to International Space Station (ISS) operations, changed back to a control room for ISS on October 6, 2006
