"OUR PROBLEM OCCURRED 200,000 MILES FROM EARTH!"
"Apollo Translunar / Transearth Trajectory Plotting Chart (ATT), Apollo Mission 13." Diagram with extensive annotations and crew signatures. First Edition, March 16, 1970, 24 x 20 inches.

Vividly shows the distance from Earth the Apollo 13 spacecraft was when the Service Module's oxygen tank exploded. The chart dimensionally illustrates the complex flight events of earth launch, outbound lunar trajectory, lunar orbit insertion, lunar landing and lift-off, the return to earth trajectory, and earth landing.
INSCRIBED AND SIGNED by Fred Haise: "Our 'problem' occurred 200,000 miles from earth! 13 April 1970, Fred Haise, Apollo 13 LMP." He has marked an "X" where the explosion occurred along the flight path and added: "Boom! Apollo, April, 13, 1970, 10:08 pm EST, Freddo" with the number 13 underlined to emphasize the coincidental numbering of the flight and date. ADDITIONALLY SIGNED AND INSCRIBED: "James Lovell, Apollo 13 CDR."
