Apollo 13 was scheduled for a 10-day mission to the moon. The highlight would have been the first landing on the moon’s upland region. But 55 hours into the flight an oxygen system failure forced crew members to convert their lunar module “Aquarius” into a lifeboat for a perilous return to Earth. Fred Haise was Apollo 13’s Lunar Module Pilot. In excerpts from this interview recorded for the NASA Johnson Space Center Oral History Project, he talks about that failed trip to the moon.
