Apollo 13 Astronaut Jim Lovell Honored

With a statue!

More info (including video clips) can be found here.

Those damn Chicagoans, always trying to steal Milwaukee’s thunder.

Milwaukee has the James Lovell Museum of Science and Technology , located on James Lovell St.

Hey Chicago, get your own astronauts! :smiley:

Wait…he looks nothing like Tom Cruise!!

Ha! You got a double! I was only going to say that he didn’t look like Tom Hanks!

To me, the statue looks more like Kevin Costner. :dubious:

I have a bit of personal pride in that statue because my company etched the pages of his manual in brass and I had to do some touch up work on the art. It’s not a huge contribution, I know, but it feels kind of cool nonetheless.
