Overview

Homer himself could not have written a more captivating story than the flight of Apollo 13. On April 11 1970 veteran astronaut Jim Lovell and his crewmates Jack Swigert and Fred Haise rode atop the eighth launch of the Saturn V juggernaut to begin their ill-fated journey to the moon.

After an explosion in the Service Module crippled the spacecraft while it was still outward bound the crew would spend several harrowing days in near frigid temperatures while the technicians at home worked around the clock to devise new and ingenious ways to keep them alive and bring them home safely. In 1970 some considered Apollo 13 a catastrophic failure but it has since been recognised as one of NASA's truly great moments, when the spirit of daring and ingenuity came to life in the team at Mission Control as they successfully brought the crew home. In "Apollo 13 The NASA Mission Reports" some of the rare official documentation of the voyage of Apollo 13 is collected and made commercially available for the first time.

  • The NASA video documentary "Houston We've Got A Problem".
