Rollback of the RSS is a major preflight milestone, typically occurring during the T-11-hour hold on L-1 (the day before launch). The scheduled launch of Columbia on Apr. 16 from Launch Pad 39B was postponed 24 hours due to difficulty with network signal processor No. 2 on the orbiter.

The former Mercury Mission Control Center building -- long ravaged by time and the elements -- was demolished. As pieces of the old building were eaten away, more than fifty years of space history came to completion. Yet despite the demise of the building, the Flight Control Area -- the heart of the mission control operation -- has been faithfully preserved for future generations. The Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex has recreated the control center in its Early Space Exploration display....
