Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta THIRD SECTION The LetfikAdge Herald Lethbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, January 27, 1971 PAGES 29-38 Operation expenses take hip; hike Cost of Apollo mission $400 million CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) - The cost of sending the Apollo 14 astronauts to the moon is; $400 million, which is $25 million more than Apollo 13. The higher price tag is due mainly to operations costs resulting from a stretchout hi the launch schedule, with nearly nine months elapsing since Apollo 13. A delay of four months was required to make design changes intended to prevent a recurrence of the oxygen tank explosion that aborted Apollo 13. Total money spent on the U.S. man-in-space program to date is $21,750 million. To help pass the time on the APOLLO DEPARTS SUNDAY - Apollo 1 rough crater formation originally selected f landing site is a valley between two ridge of debris thrown out billions of years ago w miles to the north and the site of the Soviet u hod-?, first wheeled vehicle on the moon. Th reach the moon aboard Apollo 15, next July Apollo 11 (July 20, 1969) and Apollo 12 (N 4's lunar target is the Fra Mauro area, a or the aborted Apollo 13 mission.

Previous American manned landings were ov. 19, 1969). The Apollo 14 crew that heads for the moon this Sunday is headed by Navy Captain Alan B. Shepard Jr., the first American in space and now, at 47, the oldest man to undertake space flight and the last of the original seven astronauts still active. In contrast to Apollo 14's 10-day, half-million mile journey, Shepard's 1961 suborbital flight in a Mercury capsule lasted 15 minutes and covered 302 miles. Shepard, on the left, will be accompanied by Navy Commander Edgar D. Mitchell, 40, centre, and Air Force Major Stuart A. Roosa, 37, right. Shepard a nd Mitchell will descend to the moon's surface whil� Roosa will remain in lunar orbit in the command module Kitty Hawk. The landing module is called Antares.

DURING OUR FABULOUS JANUARY SALE! long outward journey to the moon and on the return trip, the Apollo 14 astronautr are taking along recorded music to play on a tape recorder. Stuart A. Roosa, a country-western fan, is taking eight Johnny Cash recordings. Apollo 14 commander Alan B. Shepard and Edgar D. Mitchell are taking "just general popular music, no particular songs." Following Apollo 14, three flights will conclude man's first moon landing program. Apollo 15 is scheduled for a July 25 launching, with a landing at Hadley-Apennme, a lunar plain cut by a large gorge that run? along the base of some of the moon's highest mountains. The Apollo 16 and 17 missions are scheduled in 1972. The land-inc site for Apollo 16 will be Descartes, an upland valley surrounded by craters. For Apollo 17 it will be Marius Hills, a hilly region near the large dark portion of the moon called Imbrium Basin. Shepard and Mitchell will be able to take sips of water when they walk the moon's surface. The idea was suggested by Apollo 12 astronauts Charles Conrad and Alan L. Bean who said they got thirsty working on the moon in November, 1989. So plastic bags holding eight ounces of water have been placed inside the Apollo 14 hel-metr. By turning their heads, Shepard and Mitchell will be able to sip water from tubes attached to the bags. When Apollo 12 astronauts Conrad and Bean reviewed'pic-tures they took on the moon, they often could not identify who was who. To remedy this on Apollo 14, Shepard will wear identifying red armbands and legs of his moon suit. Mitchell will not have the bands. At 47, Shepard is the oldest American astronaut to fly into space. The previous "old astronaut" label was held by Walter M. Schirra, who was 45 when he commanded Apollo 7 in 1968. The oldest Russian cosmonaut to fly, Georgy Beregovoy, also was 47 when he piloted Soyuz 3 in 1968. Tiger kills man MILAN, Italy (AP) - A tiger reached through cage bars Monday and fatally slashed a 34-year-old circus hand as the trainer looked on helplessly. Giuseppe Formichetti, 34, was cleaning the animal cage when the 450-pound beast, called Shanghai, lashed a paw through an enclosure and gored him in the back.
