On April 9, astronauts Fred Haise, James Lovell and famed NASA Flight Director Gene Kranz will come together to remember and commemorate their legendary voyage 40 years ago aboard Apollo 13 during a special celebration hosted by the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation (ASF) at Kennedy Space Center, FL.
According to event coordinators, guests will hear tales from the astronauts during a drive-by of the actual launch pad where the Apollo 13 crew took flight, continuing with a look into a mock Firing Room with a private briefing by Kranz. Afterward, guests will eat dinner under a restored Saturn V rocket – the same vehicle used on this mission – alongside the crew, Kranz and key mission contributors while they share the story of what it took to safely return the ill-fated mission to Earth.
Event tickets are $250 each and may be secured at www.astronautscholarship.org or by calling 321-455-7014. Tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis and the price, over fair-market value, should be considered a tax-deductible donation.
