LUNAR ORBIT CHART—NO SUDDEN IMPACT.
"Apollo Lunar Orbit Chart (ALO), Apollo Mission 13 for 11 April 1970 Launch Date." Color lunar map, First Edition, March 5, 1970. 12 x 40½ inches.

This lunar chart shows the planned orbital paths for CSM Odyssey and the landing point for LM Aquarius. The oxygen tank explosion forced the crew to correct their flight path so they could safely swing around the moon and return to Earth. A miscalculation or inadequate engine burn could have possibly sent Apollo 13 to a collision with the moon—thus the inscription by Fred Haise on this chart.
SIGNED by FRED HAISE and JIM LOVELL as "Apollo 13 CDR" and "Apollo 13 LMP." Additionally INSCRIBED by HAISE with: "No LM touchdown, but no LM impact either! Freddo."
