There's No Red Button

I was invited yesterday to join a group visiting Firing Room 4 in Kennedy Space Center's Launch Control Center. Below are some photos.

On the Firing Room 4, looking towards the Launch Director and the windows.

Looking down the crawlerway at LC-39A from Firing Room 4.

LC-39B from Firing Room 4. It's gone back to "clean pad" for Space Launch System.

The Launch Director console. There's no big red launch button. Sorry, folks.

The Launch Director's view of the Firing Room 4 floor.

The Public Affairs Officer console. It's two positions to the right of the Launch Director.
