Catalogue Note

BOLDLY SIGNED and INSCRIBED: "JAMES LOVELL, Apollo 13 CDR" and "FRED HAISE, Apollo 13 LMP." ADDITIONALLY INSCRIBED and SIGNED BY HAISE: "No LM touchdown, but no LM impact either! Freddo." That inscription by Fred Haise pointedly sums up their mission in one phrase. Yes, the Service Module explosion cancelled their lunar landing but the crew safely maneuvered their crippled spacecraft for a flight around the Moon, and with these changes clearly avoided any possible impact. An inadequately controlled engine burn or miscalculation could have possibly sent them to a lunar impact.
