Flown in Space Artifacts
Apollo 13 Flown-in-Space Parachute Presentation
Apollo 13 Flown Parachute Presentation
This certified, authentic presentation houses a piece of parachute that was deployed upon the final stages of descent during the Apollo 13 mission. The image shows a view of the severely damaged Apollo 13 Service Module was photographed from the Lunar Module/Command Module following SM jettisoning. As seen here, an entire panel on the SM was blown away by the apparent explosion of oxygen tank number two located in Sector 4 of the SM. Two of the three fuel cells are visible just forward (above) the heavily damaged area. Three fuel cells, two oxygen tanks, and two hydrogen tanks are located in Sector 4. The damaged area is located above the S-Band high gain antenna. Nearest the camera is the Service Propulsion System engine and nozzle. The damage to the SM caused the Apollo 13 crew men to use the LM as a "lifeboat." The LM was jettisoned just prior to Earth re-entry by the CM. The Parachute was sourced from Threehook Aviation.
