Apollo 13 Lunar Module Pilot Fred Haise Talks about His Experience on the Famous Mission As Part of Visitor Complex’s ‘Tell Me A Story’ Video Series

April 11 marks the 45th anniversary of the harrowing and heroic Apollo 13 mission, the third mission to land on the moon that became a daring mission to bring three brave astronauts home to Earth. An oxygen tank exploded, leaving the crew without electricity and water – 200,000 miles from Earth. They were forced to orbit the moon without landing and return to Earth. That mission – Apollo 13 – was at the same time one of NASA’s biggest trials and one of its greatest triumphs. Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is the ideal destination for an immersive experience into the legendary Apollo program, including Apollo 13.
