<p>Slide 1</p> <p>Apollo 13 by kaleb pointslaunchMission MissionApollo 13 was supposed to land in the Far Mauro area. An explosion on board forced Apollo 13 to circle the moon without landing. The Far Mauro site was reassigned to Apollo 14. The mission was launched on April 11, 1970 at 13:13 CST. Two days later an explosion crippled the service module upon which the Command Module depended. To conserve its batteries and the oxygen needed for the last hours of flight, the crew instead used the Lunar Module's resources as a "lifeboat" during the return trip to Earth. Despite great hardship caused by limited power, loss of cabin heat, shortage of potable water and the critical need to jury-rig the carbon dioxide removal system, the crew returned safely to Earth on April 17. NASA called the mission a "successful failure".[2]Apollo 13 crewPrime crewinformation</p> <p>L) James A. Lovell, Jr. Commander (C) John L. Swinger, Jr.* Command Module Pilot (R) Fred W. Hayes, Jr. Lunar Module PilotMission objectivepolo 13 (AS-508) was launched from Pad A, Launch Complex 39, KSC, at 2:13 p.m. EST April 11, with astronauts James A. Lovell, Jr., John L. Swinger, Jr., and Fred W. Hayes, Jr., aboard. The spacecraft and S-IVB stage entered a parking orbit with a 185.5-kilometer apogee and a 181.5-kilometer perigee. At 3:48 p.m., onboard TV was begun for five and one-half minutes. At 4:54 p.m., an S-IVB burn placed the spacecraft on a translunar trajectory, after which the CSM separated from the S-IVB and LM Aquarius. (The crew had named lunar module 7 Aquarius and CSM 109 Odyssey.) The CSM then hard-docked with the LM. The S-IVB auxiliary propulsion system made an evasive maneuver after CSM/LM ejection from the S-IVB at 6:14 p.m. The docking and ejection maneuvers were televised during a 72-minute period in which interior and exterior views of the spacecraft were also shown.The Apollo 13 Lunar Module (LM or LEM) was originally supposed to land at the Far Mauro region of the Moon. The Apollo 13 mission was aborted as a lunar landing mission on 13 April 1970, 2 days after launch, when an oxygen tank on the Command and Service Module (CSM) overheated and exploded. The LM, designed to support two astronauts for 45 hours, was used as a lifeboat to house the three astronauts (Commander James A. Lovell Jr., CSM pilot John L. Swinger Jr., and LM pilot Fred W. Hayes Jr.) for 90 hours, as the CSM could not provide life support. Energy and water consumption were cut drastically for the duration of the trip, and the CM lithium hydroxide canisters, used to scrub carbon dioxide out of the air, were adapted for use on the LM. The Apollo 13 continued on to the Moon, and the LM descent engine was used to accelerate the spacecraft around the Moon and back to Earth. The LM was jettisoned shortly before reaching Earth, the astronauts returning to the Command Module for the reentry. The LM re-entered and burned in the Earth's atmosphere over the southwest Pacific, any surviving pieces impacted in the deep ocean off the coast of New Zealand. factsSaturday, April 11, 1970 at 13:13 CST. At five and a half minutes after liftoff, Swinger, Hayes, and Lovell felt a little vibration. Then the center engine of the S-II stage shut down two minutes early. This caused the remaining four engines to burn 34 seconds longer than planned, and the S-IVB third stage had to burn nine seconds longer to put Apollo 13 in orbit. Days before the mission, backup LM pilot Charlie Duke inadvertently exposed the crew to German measles. Command module pilot, Ken Mattingly, turned out to have no immunity to measles and was replaced by backup command module pilot Jack Swinger. Ground tests before launch, indicated the possibility of a poorly insulated supercritical helium tank in the LM's descent stage so the flight plan was modified to enter the LM three hours early in order to obtain an onboard readout of helium tank pressure.
