A few of the men whose story was chronicled in the Ron Howard film Apollo 13 will speak during an event at Principia College later this month. Captain James Lovell, Fred Haise and Mission Flight Control Director Gene Kranz will tell their stories during the “Failure Is Not an Option” Event on November 13th.

Sue Thoma, Coordinator for Special Events at Principia College, says it’s an honor to have these men appear as part of the college’s George A. Andrews Distinguished Speaker Series.
