Sy Liebergot in 2012 - one of the Apollo 13 flight controllers:

Some of you may know him from the Apollo 13 movie only; he was played by Clint Howard:

The images above are part of an article which I discovered while I was expanding my Apollo image archives. It's a great article about the flight controller consoles from November 2012:

I thought it might be worth posting it in here.
