[Apollo 13]

"Houston, We've Had a Problem"


Large color photograph, 16 x 20 inches, SIGNED and INSCRIBED by Commander JAMES LOVELL in gold ink: "Houston, we've had a problem! / James Lovell / Apollo 13 CDR"

Apollo 13, meant to be the third mission to land humans on the moon, ran into trouble when damaged wire insulation ignited in an oxygen tank and vented the contents of both oxygen tanks in the Command Service Module Odyssey. Though the crew made it safely back to Earth, the landing was canceled, and this view from Lunar orbit is as close as the Apollo 13 astronauts got during the mission.
