The clip giving a tour from Apollo 13 (1995) with Tom Hanks, Roger Corman The astronaut is only the most visible member... of a very large team, and all of us down to the guy sweeping the floor... are honored to be a part of it. What did the man say? "Give me a lever long enough and I'll move the world"? That's what we're doing here. This is divine inspiration. It's the best part of each one of us, the belief that anything is possible. Things like a computer that can fit into a single room... and hold millions of pieces of information... or the Saturn 5 rocket. This is the actual launch vehicle that will be taking Alan Shepard... and his crew on the first leg of the Apollo 13 mission. When are you going up again, Jim? I'm slated to be the commander of Apollo 14 sometime late next year. If there is an Apollo 14. Jim, people in my state have been asking why we're continuing... to fund this program now that we've beaten the Russians to the moon. Imagine if Christopher Columbus had come back from the new world... and no one returned in his footsteps. Attention, all personnel. Clear level three. Are there any other questions? How do you go to the bathroom in space? Well, I tell you, it's a highly technical process... of cranking down the window and looking for a gas station, which, uh... Oh, there's Deke Slayton. Deke, you might be able to answer this lady's question. Deke is one of the original Mercury seven astronauts, ladies and gentlemen. Now he's our boss. He hands out the astronauts' flight assignments... so naturally we kick back part of our salaries to Deke. How much this month? Can I have a minute? Something's come up. Sure, you b... Uh, Henry?
