Career Astronaut and Commander of Apollo 13 to Speak at Georgia Southern January 28

Captain Jim Lovell, whose famous space mission was depicted in the film Apollo 13, will speak at Georgia Southern University’s Performing Arts Center on Wednesday, January 28th at 6:30 p.m.

Lovell will present his lecture, "A Successful Failure", and will share tales from his 11-year-career with NASA, tracing the history of America's sometimes turbulent and always amazing space program, and drawing on his experience as a successful telecommunications executive.

Lovell takes his audiences to the moon, brings them into the tension-filled cockpit of the Apollo 13 mission, and gives them an exciting look at the possibilities of the twenty-first century. His story embodies the spirits of teamwork, leadership, crisis management, goal-setting and excellence.

He educates and fascinates as he relates the skills required to turn a failed system into a successful mission and the tools needed to succeed in the business world of today and tomorrow.

The lecture is sponsored by Georgia Southern’s Office of Student Leadership and Civic Engagement as part of their Spring Leadership and Civic Engagement Week. This event is free and open to the public. For more information on Lovell, view his biography at: http://www.kepplerspeakers.com/speakers/speakers.asp?Capt.+Jim+Lovell
