Apollo 13

Parent Category: Apollo Moon Missions
Apollo 13 was the name of the fateful NASA moon mission which was intended to be the third space mission to carry humans to the moon's surface. An explosion of one of the oxygen tanks and resulting damage to other systems caused the mission to be aborted before the lunar landing could take place. Questions about Apollo 13 and its crew are asked and answered here.
Electrical fault on an O2 canister caused an explosion in the oxygen tank which also damaged the second tank. This left the spacecraft virtually crippled, as the oxygen tanks were necessary for the supply of electrical power.CO2 scrubbers became saturated by change in mission profile. The Lunar...
Rescuing the three astronauts of Apollo 13 was arguably the most  difficult rescue mission in all of human history. It showed that  humankind is not willing to give up on those in need of help. For a  few days, the whole world banded together in support of these three  individuals -- even the...
  Apollo 13 was sent to the moon to collect a metric ton of moon rocks for analysis back on earth
No the spacecraft was not a evil one.
Jim Swigert was the command module and he was in the command  module, but both Jim Lovell and Fred Haise had gone to the lunar  module, just before separating.
The members of Apollo 13 were James Lovell, Ken Mattingly, and Fred Haise. However, NASA thought Ken Mattingly had te Measels so he was replaced by Jack Swigert.
The ultimate cause of the Apollo 13 explosion (a thermostat that wasn't designed for the 68volt ground power which, when applied, fused the contacts of the thermostat open, forcing the tank heater to stay on, and increasing the temperature inside the tank to nearly 1,000 degrees, thereby melting the...
The name Apollo was given by N.A.S.A , it was their third manned spacecraft, Mercury was one manned craft, Gemini is named after the constalation Gemini , Twins as it was two man craft . Apollo would be three manned and they aimed to land on the moon, mind you this was way back in 1960.
The lumar module is on the moon, part remains in space and small part where the three astronauts were sitting return to earth.
It never went into space. Because of a wire short, and high oxygen levels, the capsule containing three astronauts caught fire during testing. All aboard were killed. :(
Apollo 11 was organized by N.A.S.A.
Many say it is a fake as the flag on the moon is waving when there is no wind there.

The crew of the Apollo 13 were Jim Lovell, Jack Swigert and Fred Haise.
The Apollo 13 splashed down in earth , in the Pacific on 17/4/1970.
100,937 miles per hour and 7899 days it took.
For Apollo 13 to return to earth the moon mission was aborted on late 14/41970 or early 15/4/1970. The spacecraft had to make one orbit of the moon to return to earth.
it came from the austronauts. the co2 filter was broken .every time they breathed out, they exhailed co2.although the flight control helped fix that.
The fire was started by a short in the wiring. The hatch was sealed shut and the inside of the capsule was 100% oxygen which created an aggressive blaze.Actually the command module was pressurized to 16.5psi of pure oxygen, which saturated everything in the spacecraft, giving the slightest spark the...

N.A,S.A used two types of vehicles on the moon, one was hand pulled by the Apollo 14 astronauts, and Apollo15,16, 17 used a solar powered vehicle on the moon.
Yes Apollo 13 was scary as a whole side blew up .
The name of the Apollo 13 astronauts are Jim Lovell, Fred Haise and jack swigert.
We can say that it was a explosion in the oxygen cylinder.
The Pacific Ocean. The Apollo landed in Pacific ocean near the coast of US Territory of American Samoa. (Not sure whether it was Apollo 13 or 11)Apollo 13 did not land on the moon. Due to major issues mid-flight the astronauts couldn't land.
On the third day of Apollo13 mission, just as the astronauts were getting ready to separate from the command module, Lovell had gone to do the final check up before they went in the lunar module, the command module exploded.
As Apollo 13 had to cancel led their moon landing , they could not bring any information on the moon back.

Apollo 13 was to land on the moon and do experiments, but as it was cancelled. Apollo 14 did the job.
When the Apollo 13 was getting ready to separate and land on the moon , it exploded in the side.They were told to return to earth using the lunar module as a saving spaceship.
Jim Lovell's mother (Blanche Lovell) died on February 6th 1973, 3  years after his historical flight on Apollo 13. Lovell was 44 years  old when she died.
It was a explosion in the oxygen cylinder.
Astronaut Jim Lovell stays at Haise City Florida.

It was the Lem modual in the apollo 13 flight, It saved the life of 3 people before be jedisoned in earth orbit, before attempting splashdown
the apollo13 wasnt under weight it had a short when they were in lunar orbit they received orders to stir the oxygen tanks(turn on a fan in the oxygen tanks to circulate oxygen) the wiring on the fan blew out and the oxygen tanks blew up 3 tanks were damaged and the had to shut of 3 damaged boosters...
This is a personal opinion, i would say Jim Lovell, as he brought the damaged Apollo 13 back.
It is incredibly competitive, can be dangerous, and takes a lot of hard work. Also some people aren't interested in becoming astronauts.
The flight commanders name was Lames Lovell of Apollo 13.
they had some kind of tool to help the with the wires on the back of the Apollo 13 spacecraft.
19 000 mph to the moon, not sure how it slowed down though. Not sure how it managed that speed to get back.
It was to be the third manned mission to the moon but they never made it. About half way into their flight, there was an explosion in one of the oxygen tanks in the service module resulting from a faulty coil used in a chryo stir. They lost most of their oxygen and electrical power and it almost...
    The three names are- Jim Lovell   John (Jack) Swigert   Fred Haise
he lost his eye because he lost his eye
Gene Kranz was the main flight director, Glynn S. Lunney, Milt Windler, and Gerald D. Griffin were also flight directors for the mission.http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-missionopreport-4
During the Apollo missions, three people died on the actual  spacecraft themselves. A total of six people died during these  missions if you include workers not involved with the Apollo crafts  themselves.
Apollo 13 is not just a made up movie plot! It was a real event involving real people's lives. They did not stop on the moon because if they did they would have died there with no means of getting back. They were in a severely damaged spacecraft. The Service Module had lost much of its oxygen and...
You're probably referring to EECOM which stands for Electrical, Environmental and Consumables Manager. He looks after those systems on the Command Module.

It was called The Odysseys. And it can be seen in Kansas.
The astronauts of Apollo 13 , had to use the lunar module to return to the earth after the spacecraft had exploded.
Apollo 13 spacecraft was near to the moon and they were shortly going to separate from the Apollo craft. that Lunar module. But it happened before they had separated.
They were launched from Cape Canaveral on the east coast of the state of Florida. The missions went to the Moon.
James A. Lovell, Jr. was the commander of Apollo 13
Jim Lovell (aka James A Lovell) is still alive.
Yes! They did survive, but they almost suffacated b/c oxygen leaked out into space.
The dangers of Apollo 13 was that there could be a accident in space, as it happened , as a cylinder of oxygen exploded while far in space.
First of all due to a explosion in the oxygen tank ,of the Apollo 13 the spacecraft could not land on the moon.
The two parts of the Apollo 13 are the command module and the lunar module.

An oxygen cylinder exploded in Apollo 13, blowing a side of it.The Apollo 13 service module experienced an explosion of the oxygen tank 2 about 200,000 miles from earth. Some people think the explosion happened because the O2 tank was dropped, which broke the internal filler tube, but the real...
It was supposed to be 30 minutes long.
They had to save their batteries and had to cut elect-city in the fear of another explosion.
Lack of ballast. (They were light because they didn't collect any moon rocks.)
