Clooney, astronauts mark 45th anniversary of Apollo 13


SUGAR LAND, Texas (AP) — George Clooney has joined astronauts Jim Lovell, Tom Stafford and Eugene “Quality” Cernan at a function in Texas to praise the 45th commemoration of the Apollo 13 mission.

The occasion to stamp a month ago’s commemoration was held Tuesday night at an air terminal shed in the Houston suburb of Sugar Land.

The Apollo 13 mission was the third intended to arrive on the moon, however after it launched April 11, 1970, an oxygen tank blasted, disabling the spacecraft. The team was compelled to circle the moon as opposed to landing and returned securely on April 17. Lovell ordered the mission.

Clooney is a brand ambassador for Omega, which supported the occasion and furnished the astronauts on the mission with watches.

The occasion built up and finally finished with supper in a room intended to copy the surface of the moon.
