New Info on What Might Have Been with Apollo 13

March 27, 2010

The real crew, not the guys from the movie!

Everyone assumed that, had the Lunar Module engine not started to provide the burn needed to bring the crew of the crippled Apollo 13 home, the crew would have been lost in space for all of eternity. A recent simulation shows that would not have been the case. (Hat tip to Mark Whittington.)
