Apollo 13: From Jim Lovell To Tom Hanks
1. Remember the Apollo space program to the moon? And the nail-biting Apollo 13 mission? Apollo 13 astronaut James Lovell and the late N.Y. Times science reporter Walter Sullivan remember the events of the Apollo 13 accident and the amazing voyage home during this historic conversation. Nothing like hearing the first hand account by Lovell aboard the craft and from the observers on Earth.
2. Pulitzer Prize journalist John Noble Wilford, author Andrew Chaikin and columnist Frank Rich talk about the public disinterest with the space program despite the Apollo 13 movie starring Tom Hanks.
3. What was it like to sweat through the ordeal of Apollo 13? Gene Kranz shares his experience as flight director for the Apollo 13 mission and former director of NASA Mission Operations, as he discusses the dramatic events in his book "Failure is Not an Option."
