Here’s a question. Anyone know?

There’s a pretty famous scene in Apollo 13 where, after the in-flight disaster happens and the crew has to move to the LEM (creating a life-support problem), NASA engineers all congregate in a room, where the leader throws a bunch of junk on a table (representing items available in the spacecraft which which the crew had to work with) and says (starts at :40)

So, here’s the question. Were there people of color in that room, when that actually happened? Certainly aren’t any in the movie. :-)
