Apollo 13 was to be the third manned mission to the moon, commanded by James Lovell, Captain, USN. While en route to the moon, an explosion within an oxygen tank caused the mission to be aborted and forced an emergency return to earth. The mission has been termed "a successful failure" since the astronauts came back to earth safely.
