Astronaut James Lovell reflects on his Apollo missions

I think that I was actually with NASA at a very appropriate time for me, especially Apollo. I, of course, was on the very first flight to the moon in Apollo 8 along with Borman and Anders, was backup to Neil on Apollo 11 and then recycled to Apollo 13. Actually, I was on Apollo 14 until they wanted to give Alan Sheppard a little more time to train, so I switched with him thinking that getting to the moon six months earlier would be just as fine for me, and of course you all know what happened on Apollo 13
