Moon-bound Apollo 13 launches #now in 1970. A ruptured oxygen tank aborts the mission:


Splashdown. Apollo 13 was the seventh manned mission in the American space program and the third intended to land on the Moon. It was launched on April 11, 1970, from the Kennedy Space Center, Florida, but the lunar landing was aborted after an oxygen tank exploded two days later. Despite great hardship caused by limited power, loss of cabin heat, shortage of potable water, and the critical need to jury-rig the carbon dioxide removal system, the crew returned safely to Earth on April 17.


Apollo 13. One of the best space-themed movies and it's based on what happened on the ill-fated Apollo 13 mission. Worth a watch.
