About this Item

iii, [1], 121, [3] pages. Wraps. Illustrations. Index. Pages 93 through rear cover darkened, some foxing on rear cover. 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 the Kennedy Space Center, Florida, but the lunar landing was aborted after an oxygen tank exploded two days later, crippling the Service Module. 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. The flight passed the far side of the Moon at an altitude of 137 nautical miles above the lunar surface, and 248,655 miles from Earth, a record marking the farthest humans have ever traveled from Earth. The mission was commanded by James A. Lovell with John L. "Jack" Swigert as Command Module Pilot and Fred W. Haise as Lunar Module Pilot. This hearing was a continuation of its review of the Apollo 13 mission and heard testimony on the findings of the Apollo 13 Review Board and the status of the Apollo program. Dr. Thomas O. Paine, the NASA Administrator testified. Mr. Edgar Cortright, Chairman of the Apollo 13 Review Board also testified. Chapter 5 of the report of the Review Board was placed into the record.
