Lecture by Sy Liebergot on being a Flight Controller in Mission Control during the Apollo 13 crisis
Friday, 27th June 2014 @ 18:30 - 21:30 UTC+0£15
TICKETS ARE NOW SOLD OUT.
Apollo 13 was to be the third Lunar landing until an explosion in an oxygen tank crippled the spacecraft, leaving the three man crew in grave danger 200,000 miles from Earth. In his lecture, Sy will talk about his key role in the Apollo 13 crisis, how he made the call that ended the mission to land on the Moon and how, as part of the Mission control team, returned the crew safely back to Earth.
Join The Knowledge Observatory in the Lecture Theatre at The Heath Business & Technical Park in Runcorn from 6.30pm to 8.00pm to hear Sy Liebergot talk about what it was like to be a Flight Controller in Mission Control when a catastrophic failure occurred during the Apollo 13 mission and landed squarely in his lap. The presentation is followed by Questions and Answers and from 8.00 pm until 9.30 pm we will be having book collection, photographs and a NASA shop accompanied by refreshments.
