Astronaut Fred Haise served as the lunar module pilot during the ill-fated 1970 Apollo 13 space mission. He survived another harrowing ordeal in 1973, following an aircraft crash during filming of the Pearl Harbor epic, Tora! Tora! Tora! Haise went on to become one of the first astronauts to pilot the space shuttle in test missions. He will use NASA footage of the Apollo 13 flight during his presentation.
