Apollo 13 Mission: Overcoming Adversity
Judy L. Hasday (au); James Scott Brady (in)
Hardcover (no d.j.)
At 9:07 PM on April 13, 1970, an explosion rocked the Apollo 13 spacecraft as it flew toward the moon. The astronauts inside the command module Odyssey peered out of the capsule, & saw liquid oxygen -- necessary for fuel, power, & life-support systems -- leaking from the side of the craft. In a few moments, the astronauts would be stranded without power or oxygen 200,000 miles from Earth. Luckily the lunar module Aquarius was attached to the Apollo. No one was certain whether the oxygen supply or the power would last for the long flight back to earth & whether reentry into the Earth’s atmosphere would be safe. This is the story of how the NASA ground crew & civilian advisors worked with the astronauts to bring Apollo 13 home safely. Photos.
