Description

Frontiers of Flight Museum is gearing up for yet another spectacular Moon Day celebration. Moon Day 2022 will be in-person again with some virtual options for those unable to join. The 14th annual event will include family-oriented space-themed exhibits, activities, and presentations geared for all ages. Don't miss the keynote speaker: Apollo 13 astronaut Fred Haise.

Astronaut Fred Haise (Ret.) served as a backup Lunar Module Pilot for Apollo 8 and Apollo 11 before serving as the Lunar Module Pilot for the Apollo 13 mission. He worked with NASA for nine years after Apollo 13, serving on the backup crew for Apollo 16, commanding free flight test missions for the Space Shuttle program, and was scheduled to command Apollo 19 before its cancellation. He left NASA in 1979 to work as an executive for Grumman Aerospace Corp. Read more about Haise here.

Mark Davis will moderate the conversation between Fred Haise and author Bill Moore regarding Fred's autobiography, Never Panic Early: An Apollo 13 Astronaut's Journey. Book signing to follow.
