Description:

On April 13, 1970, NASA Houston Engineer Jerry Woodfill was monitoring Apollo 13’s warning system when an oxygen tank in the spacecraft’s command module exploded. His system was the first alert of the life-threatening malfunction famously portrayed in the movie Apollo 13 by Ron Howard. Woodfill presents a compelling autobiographical program focusing on his 50 years of experience as the Apollo Warning System Engineer for the moon landing and the rescue of Apollo 13. Using personal accounts of fear, frustration, and failure, all leading to success, Woodfill will share a motivational lecture featuring multimedia clips, live music, historic speeches, and humor. Call Big Stone Lodge at 281-350-1029 to register for this free seminar, or to receive additional information.
