Catalogue Note

INSCRIBED and SIGNED: "Our 'problem' occurred 200,000 miles from earth, 13 April 1970, FRED HAISE, Apollo 13 LMP." He has marked an "X" where the explosion occurred along the flight path and added: "Boom! Apollo, April, 13, 1970, 10:08 pm EST, Freddo" with the number 13 underlined to emphasize the coincidental numbering of the flight and explosion date. In addition, BOLDLY SIGNED and INSCRIBED: "JAMES LOVELL, Apollo 13 CDR."

One of the best graphic representations showing how far from Earth the Apollo 13 spacecraft was when the Service Module's oxygen tank exploded. Concentric circles are plotted every 50,000 nautical miles from the Earth with the last circle defining the location of the Moon during April 1970.
The Apollo 13 flight trajectory is plotted to and from the Moon. Exact points of flight events are identified including the Earth launch, translunar injection, lunar and earth coast phases, lunar orbit insertion, lunar landing/liftoff, and transearth injection.
