April 17, 1970: The ill-fated Apollo 13 spacecraft returns to Earth safely. The mission's lunar landing was aborted two days after its April 11 launch when an oxygen tank exploded, crippling the service module. Astronauts (from left to right) Jim Lovell, Fred Haise and Jack Swigert fought hardships caused by limited power, loss of cabin heat, shortage of water and the need to jury-rig the carbon dioxide removal system to return successfully. ~ NASA
