Space Center Houston launches crowdfunding campaign for Mission Control restoration

by Paul

As part of an ongoing fundraising effort, Space Center Houston has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise $250,000 (£192,050).

The crowdfunding effort, called “The Webster Challenge: Restore Historic Mission Control,” launched July 20 and had raised more than $162,500 (£124,832) as of July 23. The 30-day campaign runs through Aug. 19, and the city of Webster will match each gift dollar for dollar, up to a $400,000 (£307,280) maximum.

The Kickstarter funds will go toward Space Center Houston’s $5 million (£3 million) “On a Mission: Restoring Historic Mission Control” capital campaign. Earlier this year, the city of Webster made a lead gift of $3.5 million (£2 million) toward the campaign.
