Caption

Apollo 13 planned landing site in the Fra Mauro area on the Moon. The Fra Mauro area is a flat, vast highland centred at 17 degrees and 36 minutes west longitude and 3 degrees and 48 minutes south latitude. The pockmarked surface shows numerous small impact craters. The Apollo 13 mission was launched on April 11th 1971 on a Saturn 5 rocket. During the third day of the mission one of the oxygen tanks on the Apollo craft exploded, forcing the crew to make an emergency landing on the Earth.
