[2015] Alex Solomon: James A. Lovell

-On December 4, 1965, Lovell and Frank Borman were launched into space on the Gemini 7 mission. The flight lasted 330 hours and 35 minutes and included the first rendezvous of two manned maneuverable spacecraft.-He also flew on Gemini 12 with Buzz Aldrin on November 11, 1966.--Captain Lovell held the record for time in space with a total of 715 hours and 5 minutes until he was surpassed by the Skylab flights.

-He completed his fourth mission on the Apollo 13 flight, April 11-17, 1970, and became the first man to journey twice to the moon. Apollo 13 was only programmed for ten days. However, the original flight plan was modified en route to the moon due to a failure of the Service Module cryogenic oxygen system. Lovell and his fellow crewmen worked closely with Houston ground controllers and converted their lunar module "Aquarius" into an effective lifeboat. Their emergency activation and the operation of the lunar module systems conserved both electrical power and water to assure their safety and survival while in space and for the return to earth.
