Apollo 13


By Jim Lovell and Jeffrey Kluger

A timeless tribute to the enduring American spirit, Apollo 13 tells the story of American’s fifth mission  to the moon, a mission that nearly ended in catastrophe in April 1970. Only fifty-five hours into the flight, disaster struck for Jim Lovell and two oher astronauts after an explosion left them with a rapidly declining supply of oxygen and power. Lovell and Kluger vividly chronicle how the men were forced to abandon the main ship for the lunar module, a tiny craft designed to keep two men alive for only two days. At home, a nation watched the desperate efforts of Mission Control to bring the crew back in what many consider NASA’s finest hour.
