protesters in easy calling for the prime minister to stand down are going on reported by the international media the demonstrations demanding the social justice are the biggest in the country has seen it. all next we take you back in time and space to the famous apollo thirteen mission which failed to land on the moon because of a technical failure but all three naso crew members managed to return to earth safely well argued sophie shevardnadze caught up with the commander of the mission for his recollection of the events that's up next. jim lowell it's a great pleasure and honor to have you with us it's nice to be here now you've
12:34 am
started out for the moon twice without ever lending is that fair while the first time was deliberate we were merely going to test out the navigation of the communications and look for suitable landing spots for the people who would make the first lady paula thirteen of course was supposed to be the third lunar landing mission and as you probably know we had the explosion and so we had to go around the boat and come back home again fortunately we were successful in doing that. jr moon walk in your dreams oh yes i've been before the flight i would try to figure out what i would be doing there at a place called from mile but after i came back i never really dreamed about it after that i mean once i was you know safely back on earth i just forgot about it when you spoke about the moon you spoke of fast loneliness that was inspiring.
12:35 am
to get homesick to join to go back. no as a matter of fact we were around the moon and eight and going to run on thirteen and we were still sort of attached to the earth but we did have this idea of being you know. away from the earth and separated from the earth and although i have to admit that when we look back at the earth and we could put our thumb up to the window and everything behind our thought our earth was was disappeared and everything that we'd ever had known was behind our thought it was that's sort of a usual feeling a feeling of how insignificant really we all are back on earth if i could put my thumb up and hide everybody. and of course that incredible shot of the earth right think that's where the first to show us they are and i think for everyone it has a special personal meaning what does that shot signify to you. while i think of
12:36 am
that one photograph which was not over here you know my personal impression of what we saw but to everybody who saw that picture and is perhaps one of the most famous photographs of the last century. again that we are a. spaceship here on earth ever all astronauts whether we want to be or not and we have to live and work together if we are to survive thank you guys we're very religious all three of you on apollo eight you had very strong religious convictions right well we did but we were not that religious to know that. you know that that we were violating the sanctity of heaven. because god is with us on earth as it is with us just two hundred forty thousand miles away around the moon and so as a as a better fact you know on the way we were read the first ten verses of genesis
12:37 am
probably the old tested but we did that because it reality the old test of that was the basis of the three basic religions. on earth islam christianity and judaism and so when we were thinking about what to say being the first three people around the boom what can we say and we said lady who was the wife of a adieus paper reporter said read for the first ten verses this will appeal to both of the people who will be listening to you. and most of the earth is not christian other religions too so that's what we did to appeal to the greatest amount of people that were listening to us that the whole science behind the saturn launch was very cold and calculated and you've said so many times in your
12:38 am
interviews that we're just three guys sitting up five million pounds of high explosives and three in biles away from everyone and we have faith it's just a question of when you go on such a mission how much face how much does faith matter need only be guided by reason or you have to have faith well you have to have faith you have to have faith that. the faith that god would be on your side is faith in your fellow band who built that saturn five who built the spacecraft who designed the trajectory and launched that everybody do what they are to do it and that everything would be ok you would never get on top of a saturn five booster if you did have faith of the people who go for what would you say is the right stuff what does it take for someone to go in space i think the people who are astronauts are caused by it's. they are people who live
12:39 am
on the. people who like to explore people who like to see something different who like to open up new doors and these are the people that you know fired as astronauts and cosmonauts and the people who are here today at the starbucks festival that who have to see the earth is there really is. the joy what they had done and when god gary made his first flights and one nine hundred sixty one year already rejected by not sound once how do you feel about the twelfth of april one thousand nine hundred sixty one well i think i figured that. ever since but because we knew what they were doing. that. the russians would put somebody up into space. quite early on and we were tempted to try that we were behind it as a matter of fact what really woke up the american people was but the can making
12:40 am
fifty seven up to that time we didn't realize how far danced at that type of sylvia's work he had rocket technology and and then we got started of course they had developed their booster hurt the put yuri up into it and it's amazing. throughout the years. the booster the locket the put up eureka kara is the same one today with a lot more bought of occasions that are putting astronauts and cosmonauts into the international space station now this is like the old story of the tortoise and the hare we seem to be the hair we build. rockets and then we don't build up to go to something else so we build this and now our shuttle is stopping this year whereas the russians have taken
12:41 am
a different tack they build what they have learned and keep expanding that and pretty soon now that the turtle has finally test up and the surpassing the here what i've been carrying will present to you what is the thing the last team well i think i get carried slight is the symbology is something that. has really brought the world closer together i mean he was able to circumvent a gate to the earth and tie everything together and i think that it was a breakthrough. a challenge that that he is a really good symbol and it is that really a shame that he he bet is his demise. so early in life now when you were going to fly to the moon and the second time were you anxious i said yes i was anxious because i wanted to do something i had always planned on doing and i was the backup on apollo eleven so if bill armstrong had become sick or broke
12:42 am
a leg or something like that i was also at the go but i wanted to actually hear sort of close up my fly space career plan and now of course here returned you had to control the space ship manually and kept make all the calculations right there when did you know that you're safe. well we only knew we were safe wed. we saw water splashing over the window but spent we were back of the ocean and the spacecraft had that saw some of that because every time from from the time of the explosion all the way back there were certain crisis that we had to overcome including whether the persians will put up because the pyrotechnics to put it out the parachutes have been cold so for four days and we did know where the the explosions the charges were put out the persians what goes through your mind when
12:43 am
you don't really know what are you going to land or you going to explode is it are you still mobilized that you're not even you know you have time to fear that form what goes through your mind at that point while i think our our training has got us in a position and a mindset that do we look at things one one step at a time our minds are concentrated on what the next step is going to be what we have to do we don't worry about failure. we'll worry about that if a failure occurs but not until that time so we're pretty so straightforward what we're doing and thinking about our attackers did you really say houston we have a problem the true story which seems to be. going around all the time never never die is that when the explosion occurred jack's weicker. first said. hey houston. we have
12:44 am
a problem here. the capsule communicator came back and said say again please i then said here's to we have had a problem and that's there's rules to story about that of course where they made the movie. they had tom hanks say and he said we have a problem to ask questions when i think of austin ought to retire now you are a successful businessman but many of them couldn't really find their place in life after that they are retired from active duty a lot of them suffered clinical depression alcoholism why is that why is it that when asa notes retire they can always find the right way on earth. well i think it's very similar to that old saying that after you've been perry what else is there you know. it is it's a high point in everybody's life and then when that high point stops and you come
12:45 am
back down to live in adorable life again a lot of times it's hard to recover because many people will say yes i understand what you did but what can you do for me now and so. to be successful you have to always look forward not to look backward yes i went to the moon twice i've made four spaceflights that was of the past what am i doing now what how can i satisfy my life and enjoy life and the seasons and so a lot of us of course problem i'll have to look at the earth after we see that so far what do you think of the moon when you see it now well it doesn't have the roll bands for me that i had before i went to the moon. i was pretty close to it right now sometimes i wish i could go back and actually big the landing. but but that is the way in the past put you guys a space tourist maybe as
12:46 am
a space tourist yeah now i think i would if i could just go around the earth i've been there all the time and still that doesn't doesn't thrill me anymore but. that maybe there be some commercial operations where people start you know going take it in their own honeymoons on trips around the round the earth thank you very much for this insurance and my pleasure take care. for the full story we've gone to. the biggest issues get
