Apollo 13 Astronaut Fred Haise Speaks In DeFuniak Springs
Today in Defuniak Springs, a true American hero opened this year’s four-day Florida Assembly.
Fred Haise was one of three astronauts aboard the Apollo Mission 13 flight to the moon in April, 1970.
The famous phrase "we have a problem Houston" was initially made following an explosion aboard the flight.
The crew's successful plight to make it back to earth was dramatized in Ron Howard's movie "Apollo 13" starring Tom Hanks.
Today, Haise works with the National Air and Space Museum in the nation's capitol to get children interested in science.
