    Background: Apollo 14 astronauts Alan Shepard and Edgar Mitchell spent more than four and at half hours on the rough, rocky surface of the moon today after a moon landing which was touch and go until the last three minutes. The landing mission was nearly called off after the computer aboard the lunar landing vehicle indicated the mission should be aborted. For forty minutes technicians on earth wrestled with the problem and finally it was decided to override the computer and go ahead.
