Catalogue Note

SIGNED by Apollo 13 Commander JIM LOVELL with "Apollo 13 CDR."
SIGNED by FRED HAISE and INSCRIBED: "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! April 13, 1970, 10:08 pm EST, FREDDO" with the number 13 underlined to emphasize the coincidental numbering of the flight and date.

Additionally SIGNED by Astronaut JACK LOUSMA and INSCRIBED: "This is Houston, Say again please ... Roger, Main B under volt ... Okay, standby 13 we're looking at it ... JACK LOUSMA, Apollo 13 CAPCOM." Lousma was the capsule communicator in Mission Control and communicated those exact words just seconds after the explosion.

An impressive illustration showing exactly where on Apollo 13’s flight path the Service Module’s oxygen tank exploded.  The chart identifies the locations of all major flight events including Earth launch, lunar and Earth coast phases, lunar orbit insertion, the planned lunar landing - liftoff, transearth injection, and return to the Earth.
