“Houston, We Have a Problem…” Apollo 13 Commander to Headline Sanders-Brown Annual Dinner
LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 1, 2016) — The University of Kentucky Sanders-Brown Center on Aging Foundation will feature remarks from Apollo 13 commander and NASA legend Capt. Jim Lovell at its annual dinner on Thursday, April 7, 2016.
Lovell is famous for his calm, careful command of Apollo 13. Through teamwork and decisive leadership, Lovell and his crew modified the lunar module into an effective lifeboat to safely return to Earth in 1970. This inspiring national hero turned, “Houston, we have a problem” into an enduring part of the American lexicon.
The dinner will fund internationally recognized ongoing research at the Sanders-Brown Center on Aging, where researchers are engaged in the battle against Alzheimer’s disease and other age-related illnesses.
