From Hialeah to the moon • via @hialeahlove1925 —> Hialeah has been an incubator for musicians, actors, athletes and perhaps too many politicians but we have some of the most adventurous people as well including Ken Mattingly. Raised in Hialeah he would become one of the elite group of just 24 astronauts to ever fly to the moon. In a twist of fate he was supposed to pilot the ill-fated Apollo 13 mission (you might recall the tragic mission from the Tom Hanks Oscar nominated movie) but he was suspected of being sick and as a result he was pulled from the launch just two days before, by pure luck he missed the dramatic in-flight explosion that crippled the spacecraft. His real life persona was played by Gary Sinise( tiny pic) He would later be the main pilot of the Apollo 16 mission.The city of Hialeah named a beautiful walking park on Okeechobee road and the planetarium inside Hialeah Miami-Lakes High school is also named after him. Anyone remember his character from the movie? #hialeah
