Fred Haise and Gordon Fullerton, the crew of the Approach and Landing Tests, pose in front of Space Shuttle Enterprise. Speaking of Haise, the Apollo 13 accident took place 48 years ago today.

This day marks one of the most significant events in the history of spaceflight: the first launch of the space shuttle program and of space shuttle Columbia: STS-1, which happens to coincide on the same day 20 years after the first manned spaceflight, made by Yuri Gagarin.

Did you know?
The intended launch date for STS-1 was April 10, 1981. However, the launch was delayed to the 12th due to bugs in the onboard computers, caused by the desynchronization between the main and backup AP-101 computers.
