DESCRIPTION


This is not a book in the normal book format. It is the story of the incredible Apollo 13 mission in 1970 told as if in real time in the form of imaginary social media posts written by the main participants and observers. The narrative is based on astronaut accounts, NASA transcripts of the astronauts’ conversations with Mission Control and live broadcasts of the major U.S. TV networks covering the unfolding drama hour by hour.
There is a list of major sources at the back of the book.
Apollo 13 was a mission that gripped the entire nation and the world. It would test the courage, endurance and ingenuity, not just of three astronauts but also of the thousands of controllers, technicians and engineers back at Mission Control in Houston and across America.
