Extremely thick NASA Manned Spacecraft Center publication entitled "Apollo 13 Mission Commentary," 8 x 10.5, 635 pages, containing the official transcript of communications between Mission Control and the Apollo 13 astronauts throughout the duration of the near-catastrophic mission. The highlight of the transcript comes on page 169, in the crew's famous lines: "Okay, Houston. Hey, we've got a problem here…Houston, we've had a problem." The remainder chronicles their successful attempts to improvise a solution and use the LM as a 'lifeboat' to return home safely to Earth. An official NASA lithograph of the original Apollo 13 prime crew follows the title page. In very good to fine condition, with wear to corners, and a light crease and block of toning to the title page.
