"April 1970--the Apollo 13 mission is 178,000 miles from Earth, just two days away from a lunar landing, when an explosion rips the spacecraft apart and puts the crew's lives on the line. Captain Jim Lovell has to work quickly and decisively to save his crew and what's left of his ship. After struggling to stay alive for four days in a freezing cold spacecraft, no one knows if the command module carrying the astronauts can survive a fiery re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere. Only the leadership of Jim Lovell, the ingenuity of the NASA team in space and on the ground, and the robust systems of the spacecraft offer a chance for survival. [An] account of the infamous 'successful failure' of the Apollo 13 mission"--Publisher's Web site

Failure is not an option by Gene Kranz( Visual )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At 25, Gene Kranz was a former Air Force pilot working as a flight test engineer for McDonnell Douglas. At 26, he quit his job to work for the fledgling space agency NASA. For the next 34 years, Kranz had the best view of the space program possible without leaving the ground, serving as primary flight director throughout the Gemini and Apollo programs. Based on Kranz's acclaimed memoir of the same name, FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION offers an extraordinary behind-the-scenes look at the early years of NASA, highlighting defining moments such as John Glenn's historic first flight, the moon landing, and the "successful failure" of Apollo 13. Kranz and other NASA veterans recall the "whiz kid" atmosphere in the beginning, where people in their twenties were put in positions of enormous responsibility, and show how the extraordinary exploits of the astronauts were supported by equally impressive work on the ground. Narrated by actor Scott Glenn (The Right Stuff), FALURE IS NOT AN OPTION is a gripping account that adds an important new perspective to the story of the Space Race."--Publisher's website

Apollo 13: The Untold Story( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The third manned mission to the moon almost ended in horror and the 'thirteen' jinx seemed to play a role. Seventy-two hours prior to liftoff, Ken Mattingly, the Command Module Pilot, had to be replaced due to his exposure to German measles. Then, fifty-six hours into the mission, the crew was met with numerous major system failures. NASA was able to shut down the Command Module and use the Lunar Module to supply the necessary power to reach the moon and return to Earth. This producedure had never been carried out nor had the dyer situation ever been contemplated or simulated."--Container
