Apollo 14 was a mission of great scientifically success regarding the moon's exploration. Anyway 2 times during the mission there was are risk of a possible abort. First 6 attempts were needed to dock the CSM with the LM and then a sensor malfunction during the descent of the LM down to the lunar surface has had to be corrected by manually computer program change because otherwise the computers would have caused an automatically abort of the lunar landing. - At the end of the 2nd EVA Alan Shepard did some golf shots on the moon.

Apollo 14 war hinsichtlich der Monderforschung sehr erfolgreich. Trotzdem bestand 2 Mal das Risiko eines Missionsabbruchs. Zuerst wurden 6 Versuche benötigt, das CSM mit dem LM zu koppeln, dann musste beim Abstieg zur Mondoberfläche ein Sensorfehler durch manuelle Änderung des Computerprogramms korrigiert werden, da sonst die Landung vom Computer automatisch abgebrochen worden wäre. - Am Ende der zweiten EVA spielte Alan Shepard ein wenig Golf auf dem Mond.
