Remember the character Clint Howard (Ron Howard’s brother) played in the Apollo 13 movie with Tom Hanks? Well he was portraying my guest today, Sy Liebergot!

Sy was the lead EECOM flight controller for Apollo missions 12–15 actually working in mission control! He was critical in the safe return of the Apollo 13 crew. Sy actually made the call to not land on the moon and instead focus on returning the crew safely back to earth.

In this episode, Sy shares details the excitement and anxiety of the Apollo missions! He tells me straight up the good, the bad, and doesn’t hold anything back!

This episode is a real insider look to what NASA was like in the 60’s you definitely don’t want to miss!
