"Apollo Translunar / Transearth Trajectory Plotting Chart (ATT), Apollo Mission 13." Diagram with extensive annotations, first edition, March 16, 1970, 24 by 20 inches.

A striking illustration of how far away from Earth the Apollo 13 spacecraft was when the Service Module's oxygen tank exploded. 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! April 13, 1970, 10:08 pm EST, Freddo" with the number 13 underlined to emphasize the coincidental numbering of the flight and date. The chart shows Earth launch, lunar and Earth coast phases, lunar orbit insertion, lunar landing and liftoff, the transearth injection, and Earth return.
ADDITIONALLY SIGNED AND INSCRIBED: "James Lovell, Apollo 13 CDR."
