    Ken Mattingly did not end up flying on Apollo 13. Seven days before launch, a member of the backup crew contracted rubella, exposing both the prime and backup crew to the sickness. Unlike the other crew members, Mattingly never had rubella as a child, and thus lacked an immunity against it. Consequently, Jack Swigert replaced him as Command Module Pilot three days before launch. Mattingly later flew on Apollo 16.
