Apollo 13 (1995) Poster

(I) (1995)

Kenneth White: Grumman Rep


  • INCO White : Gene, I-I'm wondering what the... what the Grumman guys think about this.

    Grumman Rep : We can't make any guarantees. We designed the LEM to land on the moon, not fire the engine out there for course corrections.

    Gene Kranz : Well, unfortunately, we're not landing on the moon, are we?

  • Grumman Rep : Gene, I want you to understand we've never tried this before: burn, cold soak, burn, cold soak, burn, manual control.

    Gene Kranz : Look, it will ignite, will it not?

    Grumman Rep : I just want you to know the engine's never been tried like this. That's all I'm trying to tell you.

    Gene Kranz : Look, I know what you're trying to do. I guarantee you, I won't hold you personally responsible. If it lights, it lights. Let Lovell do the rest.
