Apollo 13 - 40th Anniversary at Kennedy Space Center - Jim Lovell and Fred Haise - Part 1 by Brent Haeseker. This is part 1 of the 40th Anniversary of Apollo 13 at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Recorded on Saturday, April 10th, 2010 at approximately 10:30am. Not knowing how long my batteries would last (new, untested video camcorder), I didn't get the video started until right after Jim Lovell was introduced and taking the stage. Fred Haise introduction was next.
