These words set in motion a historic series of events. For three days, three astronauts huddled in the Aquarius Lunar Module as the Mission Control team on Earth worked to solve the problem of how to bring them home. Meanwhile, the world united in prayer and hope for the survival of three Americans 200,000 miles from Earth. 

No other space mission before or since called on the collaboration of so many in Mission Control and beyond to solve such a critical challenge. Apollo 13: A Mission of Survival. A Mission of Teamwork. A Mission of Hope. Join us to celebrate the great Victory of Apollo 13, where the Apollo 13 Command Module, Odyssey, was restored, preserved and is proudly on display in Cosmosphere’s Apollo Gallery.  

Slated to appear: Jim Lovell, Fred Haise, Gene Kranz, Gerry Griffin, Milt Windler, John Aaron, Jerry Bostick, Vance Brand, Chuck Deiterich, Ed Fendell, Spencer Gardner, Jack Lousma, Ed Smylie, Frank VanRensselaer and…Andrew Chaikin, Author; Michael Griffin, Undersecretary of Defense for Research and Engineering and former NASA Administrator. Glynn Lunney will be a pre-recorded video.* 


Join us at Hutchinson's Historic Fox Theatre for an Apollo 13 Panel Discussion with Apollo 13 astronauts and MOCR team members as well as Michael Griffin, former NASA Administrator and current Undersecretary of Defense for Research and Engineering. With panel moderators: Author Andrew Chaikin and Cosmosphere CEO Jim Remar. Limited tickets available.
