$3.5 million to spare? Check out Astronaut Jim Lovell's fabulous lake side home up for sale.

Retired NASA astronaut Captain Jim Lovell, portrayed by Tom Hanks in the Hollywood classic Apollo 13, has listed his gorgeous lake house for $3,500,000.

In 1970 Jim Lovell led a failed moon landing aboard Apollo 13, which became the basis of the 1995 movie of the same name.

His Texas retreat, designed and built for the spaceman and his wife Marilyn, sits on the shores of Lake Lyndon B Johnson, in Horseshoe Bay, USA.

What a great home, if only we had the money, a very special home of a very special man. Coolest dude on the planet (or off the planet) More on this story here.

I remember on I Dream of Jeanie when Major Nelson was found out by his bosses to have a million dollar bank account. They thought he sold secrets to the Soviets. I now know who did lol

Being an astronaut must pay well, but I'm sure there is a little name dropping included in the price.
