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.

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
