Apollo 13 lunar module pilot Fred Haise, Jr, 76, was originally slated to become the sixth man to walk on the Moon in April 1970. Instead he considers himself fortunate to have survived that ill-fated mission, earning the distinction of having circled behind the Moon and immediately returned to Earth. From his hometown of Biloxi, Haise received NASA's Ambassador of Exploration Award during a ceremony Dec. 2 at the Gorenflo Elementary School.
