APOLLO 13 LUNAR CHART WITH NO LUNAR IMPACT, SIGNED.
ASTROS ARE GRATEFUL THEIR ENGINE BURN SENDS THEM AROUND AND NOT INTO THE MOON.
Apollo Lunar Orbit Chart (ALO), Apollo Mission 13 for 11 April 1970 Launch Date. Color lunar map, First Edition, March 5, 1970. 12 x 40-1/2 inches.

Boldly SIGNED and INSCRIBED: "JAMES LOVELL, Apollo 13 CDR" and "FRED HAISE, Apollo 13 LMP." Additionally INSCRIBED with HAISE'S grateful comment of: "No LM touchdown, but no LM impact either! Freddo."

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.
