Houston we have a problem! These are deeply impressing 19 minutes. Apollo 13 Commander James Lovell and his fellow astronauts are talking about the Apollo rescue mission from 1970 …

 

During the Omega Speedmaster evening in Houston on Wednesday Apollo 13 Commander Captain James Lovell was asked on stage to recapitulate what happened with Apollo 13 in 1970 and what role the Omega Speedmaster chronograph played they had on board. Fellow astronauts General Thomas Stafford and The last man on the moon“ Gene Cernan joined Commander Lovell on stage…

    First off great to see all these old scientists. Yeah, they are astronauts and pilots but first they were scientists.
    Mr. Clooney’s remarks were an endorsement of the entire US space program. The Russians facing a similar situation would have X’ed off the crew then calling it an unfortunate incident if it ever leaked out to the world. The USA always maintained an open look at the science side of the space program. Yes, it was a propaganda tool since we were not the first in space (oh dear how embarrassing, I built a receiver to listen to Sputniks Beep Beep Beep). And like so many science experiments when politics are involved watch out! The Apollo 13 F/U was the responsibly of some space cowboys. Maybe, but all those guys had PhD’s from places like MIT.
    When your ass is on the line there is only one way to react. Save it! And these guys did brilliantly. And Omega had been chosen by NASA as a mission watch and it did its job. Hats off to Omega and a lot of well trained and educated men.
