"At 25, Gene Kranz was a former Air Force pilot working as a flight test engineer for McDonnell Douglas. At 26, he quit his job to work for the fledgling space agency NASA. For the next 34 years, Kranz had the best view of the space program possible without leaving the ground, serving as primary flight director throughout the Gemini and Apollo programs. Based on Kranz's acclaimed memoir of the same name, FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION offers an extraordinary behind-the-scenes look at the early years of NASA, highlighting defining moments such as John Glenn's historic first flight, the moon landing, and the "successful failure" of Apollo 13. Kranz and other NASA veterans recall the "whiz kid" atmosphere in the beginning, where people in their twenties were put in positions of enormous responsibility, and show how the extraordinary exploits of the astronauts were supported by equally impressive work on the ground. Narrated by actor Scott Glenn (The Right Stuff), FALURE IS NOT AN OPTION is a gripping account that adds an important new perspective to the story of the Space Race."--Publisher's website.

"The third manned mission to the moon almost ended in horror and the 'thirteen' jinx seemed to play a role. Seventy-two hours prior to liftoff, Ken Mattingly, the Command Module Pilot, had to be replaced due to his exposure to German measles. Then, fifty-six hours into the mission, the crew was met with numerous major system failures. NASA was able to shut down the Command Module and use the Lunar Module to supply the necessary power to reach the moon and return to Earth. This producedure had never been carried out nor had the dyer situation ever been contemplated or simulated."--Container.
