Fred Haise was made famous by the movie Apollo 13, in which he was portrayed by Bill Paxton in the story of the most famous Apollo mission other than Apollo 11. But he was also a member of the Apollo 11 team, serving as back up lunar module pilot in case something happened to Buzz Aldrin prior to the flight. Dave talks to Fred about what it was like to go through all the training for the first moon landing as well as being the last person in the command module Columbia when he was responsible for setting all the lighting and switches before Neil Armstrong, Aldrin and Mike Collins climbed aboard to set off for their historic voyage on July 16, 1969.
