"This young adult book tells the story of the Apollo 13 mission in 1970. It was the seventh manned mission in the Apollo space program and the third that was meant to land on the Moon. The landing was aborted after an oxygen tank exploded, threatening all lives onboard the craft. The crew did return home safely. This book explores how the team worked together and what the space program learned from the experience"-- Provided by publisher.
