Mission Control is the ISO's operational and control center for the Antares mission. The same facility was used for training the Astronaut Candidates over the course of the five years prior to the actual mission. From here, the ground crew monitors the Antares and have the ability to control the craft remotely. Real-time communications and video surveillance are maintained between the two. Michael Goss, Head of Mission Control, is often referred to directly as Mission Control. The remainder of the ground crew can be contacted by the Antares crew through Mission Control. ("Pilot")
