"Houston, we've got a problem," is a phrase that has gone down in pop culture history. That's because any and all space flight problems—and their ultimate heroic solutions—went down at Houston Mission Control. Today, Building 30 of the Johnson Space Center is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was here that NASA guided nine Gemini and all the Apollo missions, including Apollo 11's Mission to the Moon. Mission Control is now part of Space Center Houston, one of the biggest tourist attractions in the US. When you stand in this remarkably contained space and think of the infinities that were discovered here, you'll understand why.
