Survival in Space

The Apollo 13 Mission

by David Long, Stefano Tambellini
OVERVIEW
April 11, 1970: Apollo 13 was launched from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. It should have been the third manned Apollo mission to land on the moon. But when an explosion on board damaged the spacecraft, it became a perilous and near-impossible fight for survival. Battling to get back to Earth, the crew on board traveled further into space than any humans had done before . . .

In this gripping retelling of the astonishing Apollo 13 mission, David Long shows how courage, determination and teamwork succeeded in beating all odds to bring the spacecraft home.
