Anniversary of Apollo 13 trip Forty-five years ago today the three astronauts on Apollo 13 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apollo_13) were thinking that it was going to be just another day of their moon mission adventure, not knowing that their travel into space was one of the first of NASA’s space missions to actually almost lose the lives of three men: NASA (www.nasa.gov) astronauts Jim Lovell, Jack Swigert, and Sy Liebergot.

history 24 April 2015 Apollo 13 Man had already walked on the moon and the Apollo 13 expedition didn’t even make front page news. Americans were growing apathetic towards the Apollo expeditions but no doubt the mission was an important one. The Apollo 13 mission showed Americans that we were capable of great things and that we were a great country. The Apollo 13 mission was launched at 2:13 p.m. est. April 11, 1970 from launch complex 39a at Kennedy space center. The Apollo 13 crew consisted of James
Gene Kranz is the person I decided to talk about in the role of making the recovery of Apollo 13 a success. Gene at the time, was the Houston Mission Control leader. As the leader, he was responsible for understanding what his men were telling him to figure out a plan to keep the crew of Apollo 13 safe. Once the oxygen tank leakage happened, that meant the cabin would be full of carbon dioxide and not enough oxygen. One quote I caught while listening to the movie was, “Okay now, lets everybody keep
Apollo 13 “There are people who make things happen, there are people who watch things happen, and there are people who wonder what happened. To be successful, you need to be a person who makes things happen” (Lovell). This quote by Jim Lovell is teaching people that you will never accomplish anything if you just sit and watch other people make accomplishments. Before Apollo 13 went into space, scientists had a few problems with assembling the craft, but nothing was considered wrong or messed up.
Apollo 13 was the seventh manned mission in the American Apollo space program and the third intended to land on the Moon. This mission sure was quiet a ride. Now the objective of Apollo 13 was to land on the moon and collect moon samples as they had in the previous missions this was all done in idea of President Nixon. Some of the scientific experiments conducted were Atmospheric Electrical Phenomena. In the previous mission, Apollo 12, there was an electrical disturbance as a result of that there
Apollo 13 “Houston, we’ve had a problem,” (Apollo 13) is a recognizable expression that many of us may know but what exactly happened that had NASA, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, on the edge of their seats? There has been a sufficient amount of attempts to land on the Earth’s Moon, however this specific mission left the United States astounded by this “successful failure” (Apollo 13). Apollo 11 was the first spaceflight that landed two men on the moon and Apollo 12 was triumphant
The Apollo program was created for a space race, to get American Astronauts on the moon first. Why did the Americans want to do this in the first place though? The soviets launched Sputnik 1, the first satellite to orbit Earth, so the Americans were determined to get to the moon first. During the time of the Apollo program, they developed the mens ability to work in the lunar environment, carrying out a program of scientific exploration on the moon, achieving preeminence in space for the United States
