The Grand Rapids Hero Who Was First To Hear ‘Houston, we’ve had a problem.’
"Houston, we've had a problem." Spoken by Astronaut Jim Lovell in real life, it was communicated to Col. Jack Lousma. Lousma, a native of Grand Rapids who grew up in Ann Arbor, was the CAPCOM recipient of the communication from space. CAPCOM is the acronym for Capsule Communicator.
