Apollo 13 (Houston, we've had a problem) Mission Transcript
Recreated from official NASA sources, this poster depicts the dialogue exchanged between the Apollo 13 crew and Mission Control on earth in the moments surrounding their fateful incident en route to the moon. This poster includes a key to the speakers and is topped with the date of this now historic space flight.
The dialogue starts as the crew finish up a live TV broadcast, with Jim Lovell showing the viewers back on earth around the command module as well as talking through some of the difficulties of space travel. After a short discussion on the playlist for this leg of the journey (which includes the theme from 2001: A Space Odyssey) the transmission ends in good spirits and the crew return to their duties.
As the evening checklist is run through, Houston Cap Comm asks command module pilot John Swigert to stir the crafts oxygen tanks. Immediately the impact of this seemingly routine action is felt as an explosion is felt to jolt the module and the text switches to highlight the now well known phrase:
"Houston, we've had a problem."
With steadfast resolve, the rest of the poster shows how everyone involved works the problem to determine cause and what actions need to be taken to ensure the immediate safety of the crew.
This piece is a must have for any space enthusiast, both those who remember seeing the events unfold and those who wish to be inspired as the next generation of explorers come of age.
