Apollo 13

We will commemorate the anniversary of the safe return of Apollo 13 to earth 50 years ago!  Apollo 13 was the seventh manned mission in the Apollo space program and the third intended to land on the Moon. The craft was launched on April 11, 1970, from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, but the lunar landing was aborted after an oxygen tank exploded two days later, crippling the service module upon which the command module had depended.  Bit by bit over the span of two hours, the command module was shut down so no further damage was made to the vehicle so the crew could attempt to safely return to Earth.  The crew used the lunar module (LM) as a lifeboat for the return to earth.  Despite great hardship caused by limited power, loss of cabin heat, shortage of potable water, and the critical need to make makeshift repairs to the carbon dioxide removal system, the crew returned safely to Earth on April 17, 1970, six days after launch.
