Did you know that Fred Haise, of Biloxi, Mississippi, was the module pilot on Apollo 13? Haise would have been the 6th man to walk on the moon if complications had not of derailed the mission. Haise was portrayed by Bill Paxton in the Apollo 13 film along side Tom Hanks and Kevin Bacon. #Mississippian #Apollo13 #astronaut
