Summary: Astory of courage- in space, at NASA, and at the homes of those involved (Houston Chronicle), Apollo 13 recounts America's fifth mission to the moon, a mission that nearly ended in catastrophe in April 1970. Only fifty-five hours into the flight, disaster struck for Jim Lovell and two other astronauts after an explosion left them with a rapidly declining supply of oxygen and power. Lovell and Kluger vividly chronicle how the men were forced to abandon the main ship f moreor the lunar module, a tiny craft designed to keep two men alive for only two days. At home, a nation watched the desperate efforts of Mission Control to bring the crew back in what many consider NASA's finest hour. Apollo 13 is a timeless tribute to the enduring American spirit. less
