  • Wikipedia: "During the Apollo 13 mission, Gene Kranz never actually used the phrase 'Failure is not an option,' which was created for the Ron Howard movie Apollo 13.... However, he so liked the way the line reflected the attitude of mission control, that he used it as the title of his 2000 autobiography."
