Why is the app and film called CAPCOM GO!? Well, in mission control, all the desks have an abbreviation of their role so they can call out their status easily, the Capsule Communicator ka CAPCOM, was the person who spoke to the Astronauts when they were in space, this was normally an Astronaut as they preferred to speak to one of their own.
