    This is a very interesting and informative chronological look into the Apollo 13 mission that is known as successful failure.

The last chapter also covers other NASA missions that had various levels of complications and success/5. Decades after the launch of the mission, Jim Lovell and coauthor Jeffrey Kluger offer an incisive look at America's waxing and waning love affair with space exploration during the past three decades, culminating only recently when the Apollo 13 spacecraft itself, long consigned to an aviation museum outside Paris, was at last returned to its.

Written by astronaut Jim Lovell and co-writer Jeffrey Kluger, Apollo 13 follows the harrowing trip that was supposed to result in a moon landing and return. I have seen the movie many times and wanted to see how faithful it was to the actual voyage.

I'm happy to say that it is fairly true to what actually happened with a few minor exceptions/5(). It tells the story of the Apollo 13 mission from Lovell's perspective interspersed with other anecdotes about Lovell's NASA and Naval career.

There are other chapters shown from the perspective of other people involved in the mission, such as John Aaron (everyone's favourite "Steely Eyed Missile Man") and Ken Mattingly/5. The story of Apollo 13 is the story of how smart people face failure with their best work.

It's right up for my preference for "good government" and "history of science and technology" books. The American mission to the moon is full of those kinds of stories. Kudos to /5. If you are a space theme enthusiast, or just enjoyed the movie Apo this is a must read book.

Absolutely complete, it shows, tells and describes in details all that happened on that trip to the moon. A perfect balance between a technical language and for “common” people. I have it for mant years and I have read it 3 times!/5.

I understand that this would be considered more of a children's book but I liked how informative it was and enjoyable at the same time.4/5(7). The true story of technical troubles that scuttle the Apollo 13 lunar mission inrisking the lives of astronaut Jim Lovell and his crew, with the failed journey turning into a thrilling saga of heroism.

Drifting more thanmiles from Earth, the astronauts work furiously with the ground crew to avert tragedy. Pradeep Badatiya rated it really liked it A timeless tribute to the enduring American spirit, Apollo 13 tells the story of America's fifth mission to the moon, a mission that nearly ended in catastrophe in April /5(3).

This book contains a comprehensive collection of original NASA source material related to Apo including a detailed press kit, which describes how the Apollo/Saturn system works from a high-level, and what the mission was intended to do; pre- and post-mission reports, containing timely executive-summary-level information; crew debriefing, where Lovell, Haise, and Swigert report on all 4/5(2).

The Apollo 13 mission was a significant historical event, because of the dangerous repercussions that followed the explosion of the oxygen tank on Apollo The story in which the astronauts Lovell, Swigert, and Haise surviving these errors during the flight is truly incredible.

Apollo 13 was the seventh crewed mission in the Apollo space program and the third meant to land on the craft was launched from Kennedy Space Center on Apbut the lunar landing was aborted after an oxygen tank in the service module (SM) failed two days into the mission.

The crew instead looped around the Moon, and returned safely to Earth on April It tells the story of the Apollo 13 mission from Lovell's perspective interspersed with other anecdotes about Lovell's NASA and Naval career. There are other chapters shown from the perspective of other people involved in the mission, such as John Aaron (everyone's favourite "Steely Eyed Missile Man") and Ken Mattingly.

A fascinating book about the near disaster of the Apollo 13 Moon mission. In fact the book covers Jim Lovell's early interest in rockets, his astronaut selection and the Apollo 1 disaster before turning to the Apollo 13 mission itself.

I found the book interesting enough to hold my attention throughout recovery from a hip replacement s: Overview In Aprilduring the glory days of the Apollo space program, NASA sent Navy Captain Jim Lovell and two other astronauts on America's fifth mission to the moon.

Only fifty-five hours into the flight of Apo disaster struck: a mysterious explosion rocked the ship, and soon its oxygen and power began draining away.

Written with all the color and drama 4/5(27). Ron Howard's view of Jim Lovell's own account of events in the Apollo 13 mission is not intended to be a documentary - it's an exploration, using some archive footage from the time and dramatized stories, of the people involved in this failed trip to the Moon.

Review. Based loosely on the book Lost Moon, written by Jim Lovell & Jeffrey Kluger, Apollo 13 is a gripping and accurate retelling of the troubled Moon flight, which, although a failure by mission standards, is rightly considered by many to be NASA’s finest hour. Directed deftly by Ron Howard, the film rings true with authenticity from beginning to end.

I have read many books and watched many videos about the NASA programs from Mercury to Gemini to Apollo, with special interest in the Apollo program, and this book - originally entitled "Lost Moon" - is by far the best account of the voyage of Apo which became a crisis after an oxygen tank in the command service module explodedmiles away from Earth.

There is a moment early in "Apollo 13" when astronaut Jim Lovell is taking some press on a tour of the Kennedy Space Center, and he brags that they have a computer "that fits in one room and can send out millions of instructions." And I'm thinking to myself, hell, I'm writing this review on a better computer than the one that got us to the moon.
