HOOK 'EM: Houston, we have a problem...

These are the famous words of Jim Lovell, the astronaut who spearheaded the Apollo-13 spacecraft mission to an exciting adventure to the moon. We know that it eventually ended in a 'successfull failure'. But Jim Lovell and Gene Kranz (who was controlling the re-entry of the Apollo 13 back to earth from the Houston Mission Control Center) are best known for their leadership qualities.
