History is not always bad
Sometimes it was so good that you know in your heart
that it was.
Some of our history is a teaching tool as to what does not work so don't do it again or you will get the same results (Déjà vu)!
Sometimes you just know that some history is worthy of preserving.
I believe this to be one of those times!
Campaign launched to restore NASA's historic mission control room

NASA used the mission control room with its monochrome computer monitors and rotary dial telephones starting in 1965. It went dark in 1992, well into the shuttle program.
With NASA's slashed budget, the agency's priority is the future of space travel, not preserving its past. Space Center Houston, the non-profit that runs the visitors center here, has launched a $5 million fundraising campaign to restore this room to its 1960s glory.
