You see, back in the old days, you had to write your Wat 5 or Fortran computer program on something called a punch card.  If you ever got your cards out of order or forgot to put one in the stack when you ran your program, your program would fail.  Often you had no idea if it was a card sequence, a typo or if your program logic was fubar that caused your program to fail.  Good times.

According to this source the photo is of "Apollo Mission Control Console, Houston, 2012. "

Dinosaur tech "still in use" that includes a rotary telephone dial, knobs, and dedicated push buttons. You would think that sometime after the 1960s it would have been upgraded to at least have a keyboard. I think what's missing in the photo is the laptop that whoever is sitting at this station uses to do 99% of their work.

Given that it's labeled as part of the Shuttle program, that equipment is probably 30-40 years old.

What says this equipment is still in use? The photo might have been taken in 2012, but that doesn't mean the console was still being used.

coming home at 3am -drunk, drove past the sleeping guard and into the parking lot.  Now the dress is an icon but this kid was it white socks black pants pocket protector short sleeve white shirt.
I was trying to gather enough steam to leave the car and stagger to the dorm room.
I watched him walking from Graduate Housing, across the parking lot carrying an uncomfortable number of shoe boxes.
The bay was only yards away so it was always damp there.
He made it across the parking lot so I felt the show was over and began to move when he tripped on the curb to the sidewalk.
When I had drunkenly arrived on the scene, standing over him looking down at broken shoeboxes and cards scattered in the wet grass, I found him crying, he was sobbing like a little girl.
You see kids, The Computer was leased out something like 20 hours a day.  Students got to use it for 2 or three.  Your Programming class project took all semester.  You programmed ONE tiny program.  You had ONE chance to run it.
He'd just shot his bolt.  He'd totaled his semesters work.
In my drunken stupor I wandered off to bed leaving him there to cry amongst the dead bugs and earthworms.
It wasn't until many years and a letter salad after my name that I even remembered him.
I wonder how he made out in those pre-grade inflation days  .  .  .  poor bastard.
oh sorry - no pshop today-apologies

The more important question is, is why hasn't the Fark phone app been upgraded with vote buttons yet? I read Fark from my phone 80-90% of the time, and so many photos I want to vote on!

It's no longer in use. Having visited the Houston Space Center just a week ago, I can confirm that this is a picture of the old Mission Control terminals. They keep the room intact as a tour piece. The new Mission Control is one floor down, running missions on the ISS.

They keep it secret. They launch at night so no one notices....
