JSC2001-E-44491 (5 December 2001) --- Steve Nesbitt monitors pre-launch data for STS-108 from the Public Affairs Office (PAO) console in the Shuttle Flight Control Room of the Johnson Space Center's Mission Control Center (MCC). A New York Police Department (NYPD) cap rests on the PAO console. New York City's heroes of September 11 were honored in various expressions before and during Wednesday's launch, which went off flawlessly at its scheduled time, following two postponements in the last few days. Various consoles and other areas in the control room displayed flags and other artifacts that paid tribute to the heroes of September 11 and subsequent actions by military personnel as well as recognizing the memories of victims.
