"Houston, we've had a problem..." were the words Apollo 13's Warning System Engineer Jerry Woodfill heard in his headset that April 13th, 1970 evening. The Tom Hanks-Ron Howard movie APOLLO 13 tells the story. Yet, in SPACE ACTS, Jerry brings a behind-the-scenes extra dimension to the account. In like fashion, he examines other significant events in the annals of American space and terrestrial exploration. Among these are: The Apollo One fire of 1967, The threats to Apollo 11's first manned lunar landing, Space Station Skylab's fiery descent to Earth in July of 1979, and The Challenger tragedy. Had Luke, the author of the biblical book of Acts, recorded Space history, his account might have resembled these what-really-happened-stories from chapters of SPACE ACTS.
