    Ok, this is a really stupid question, but it's just killing me for some reason. What do you call the person who leads a shuttle launch? I need help quickly!

    Lots of things. Mission Control, or dean of launch, Launch Control, umm, Shuttle Team leader, Mission Commander (though i'm not sure).

    so essentially, I'm not sure.

    Don't they have a "control chief" at a master console? I believe I read that they do.

    I think his name's "TOM".

    I believe you're referring to the "launch coordinator".
