    Only fifty-five hours into the flight of Apo disaster struck: a mysterious explosion rocked the ship, and soon its oxygen and power began draining away. Written with all the color and drama of the best fiction, APOLLO 13 (previously published as Lost Moon) tells the full story of the moon shot that almost ended in catastrophe. The full story of Apollo 8 has never been told, and only Jeffrey Kluger—Jim Lovell’s co-author on their bestselling book about Apollo 13—can do it justice. Here is the tale of a mission that was both a calculated risk and a wild crapshoot, a stirring account of how three American heroes forever changed our view of the home planet.

    The Apollo 13 mission ended up lasting for seven days from launch on April 11 th to splash down on April 17 th. 1 In order to accurately portray every single one of the problems that occurred on the Apollo 13 mission in those seven days the film would have needed to be considerably longer then minutes. Especially considering that the first. A beautiful, cloth-bound large format photography book, encasing over stunning images from each of the 11 manned Apollo missions. Additional chapters in the book elaborate on the photographic training the astronauts underwent and the modified Hasselblad camera equipment they were using.

    The book also has a unique and exclusive short essay written by Apollo 7 astronaut, Walt Cunningham, who flew on the very first manned Apollo mission. The essay focuses on his pioneering experimentation and testing of the Hasselblad camera that flew with him on board. What does this book remind me of? - This film, an astronaut in April during a desperate crisis, an oxygen tank exploded over the right to return, miraculously, and Apollo 13 was reproduced on a 4/5.

Apollo 13 was the seventh mission of NASA's Project Apollo and the third manned lunar-lander mission. The flight was commanded by Jim other astronauts on board were Jack Swigert and Fred Haise. The craft was launched successfully toward the Moon, but two days after launch a faulty oxygen tank exploded, and the Service Module became damaged, causing a loss of oxygen.

Apollo is the behind-the-scenes story of an epic achievement. Based on exhaustive research that included many exclusive interviews, Apollo tells how America went from a standing start to a landing on the moon at a speed that now seems impossible.

It describes the unprecedented engineering challenges that had to be overcome to create the mammoth Saturn V and the facilities to launch it. Apollo 13 is an excellent movie about the real-life space flight that gripped the nation and changed the world.

Tom Hanks does a wonderful job playing astronaut Jim Lovell who was the captain of the 3-man team that were aboard the space capsule that experienced major problems while on their way to.

Apollo 13and its still attached Saturn V third stage (called the S-IVB)were thoroughly checked while in orbit. At p.m., the astronauts sent their first telecast from space, a five-minute program which included a description of their view of the cloud-covered Eastern United States.

S-IVBwas re-ignited at p.m. ESTto give Apollo 13its final. On ApApollo 13 lifted off for the moon with Commander Jim Lovell, Command Module Pilot Jack Swigert and Lunar Module Pilot Fred Haise aboard.

Two days later, with the spacecraft well on its way to the moon, an oxygen tank exploded, scrubbing the lunar landing and putting the crew in jeopardy.Altogether, the cast and crew spent nearly four hours weightless. Science writer Jeff Kluger—who, along with Apollo 13 mission commander Jim Lovell, wrote the book the movie was based on—worked as a consultant on the film.
