Public Service Broadcasting – Go! Lyrics

This is Apollo Control at one hundred two hours into the flight of Apollo Eleven.
It’s grown quite quiet here in Mission Control.1
A few moments ago, Flight Director Gene Kranz requested that everyone sit down, get prepared for events that are coming.2
And he closed with the remark, “Good luck to all of you.”3

Twelve minutes now until ignition for Powered Descent.
Everything’s still looking very good at this point.4

Okay all flight controllers “GO” / “NO-GO” for Powered Descent:
