Can you name the three astronauts that were members of the Apollo 13 crew? Fred was one of them. He graduated with an engineering degree from the University of Oklahoma, and when I worked there he was given one of the distinguished graduate awards (yeah, I think being an astronaut makes you pretty distinguished).
I remember being so nervous to meet this guy. He’d had a movie made out of something he did in his life, for pete’s sake! But he couldn’t have been nicer or more humble.
