Aerospace Walk of HonorFred Haise is best known as the Lunar Module Pilot who, in 1970, was a crewmember on the dramatic Apollo 13 aborted lunar mission. Due to an oxygen tank explosion, the crew had to utilize the Lunar Module "Aquarius" as a lifeboat. This mission will stand in history as a hallmark example of the ingenuity of a highly trained flight and ground team to develop "real time" procedures and techniques to overcome a life-threatening situation.
