Description


Staple-bound manual entitled "Apollo 13 Mission Report," MSC-02680, 8 x 10.5, approximately 125 pages, dated September 1970. The report provides details on the attempted third Apollo moon-landing, and includes chapters concerning: “Command and Service Module Performance,” “Lunar Module Performance,” “Mission Consumables,” “Biomedical Evaluation,” “Mission Support Performance,” “Experiments,” and “Assessment of Mission Objectives.” The report summary section reads, in part: “The Apollo 13 mission, planned as a lunar landing in the Far Mauro area, was aborted because of an abrupt loss of service module cryogenic oxygen associated with a fire in one of the two tanks at approximately 56 hours. The lunar module provided the necessary support to sustain a minimal operational condition for a safe return to earth.” The name "E. L. Michel," who worked in NASA's medical offices, is stamped in the upper right corner of the cover. In fine condition, with some light creasing to covers. Accompanied by a packet entitled "Change Sheet for NASA-MSC Internal Report, Apollo 13 Mission Report, Change 1," dated May 1970, MSC-02680. From The Bill Lende Collection.
