Houston, we've had a problem
apollo-13-2.mp3 (the second audio file)|
So, the number 13 doesn't bother you.
Only if it's a Friday, Phil.
Apollo 13, liftin' off at 1300 hours and 13 minutes and entering the moon's gravity on April 13.
Uh, Ken Mattingly here has been doing some scientific experiments regarding that very phenomenon, haven't you?
Uh, uh, yes. Well, I,uh, had a black cat, uh, walk over a broken mirror under the lunar module ladder. It didn't seem to be a problem.
Yeah, we're also considerin' a real helpful letter we got from a fella said we ought to take a pig up with us for good luck.
Does it bother you that the public regards this flight as routine?
There's nothin' routine about flyin' to the moon. I can vouch for that. And, uh,I think that an astronaut's last mission, his final flight, well, that's, that's always going to be very special.
Why is this your last, Jim? I'm in command of the, the best ship with the best crew that anybody could ask for, and I'll be walking in a place where there's 400 degrees difference between sunlight
and shadow. I can't imagine, uh, ever topping that.
Where's their broadcast?
All the networksdumped us.
One of them said we made going to the moon about as exciting as taking a trip to Pittsburgh.
My son's supposed to be on.
He's in outer space.
This is all the channels we get, Mrs. Lovell.
It's that damn TV Guide again.
