Prior to liftoff, missions are controlled from the Launch Control Center (LCC) located at NASA's Kennedy Space Center on Merritt Island, Florida.
Once the rocket has cleared the launch tower (usually within the first 10–15 seconds), is when control is switched over to the Mission Control Center at the Johnson Space Center.
