The old ones of us will remember it ;-) - Apollo 13 was an aerospace mission of the US Apollo program in April 1970. After the explosion of a tank during the flight to the moon, the planned moon landing had to be abandoned. Technical improvisation was needed to bring the three crew members back to Earth alive in their damaged spacecraft. In those days
we watched the event on the TV with excitement. I tried to put the tension into the music. I hope it has been a little successful.

Excerpts from the radio messages used in this track:

Okay, Houston —
I believe we've had a problem here.

This is Houston. Say again, please.

Houston, we've had a problem. We've had a main B bus undervolt.

Roger. Main B undervolt.

Okay, stand by, 13. We're looking at it.


That's AC, okay. Yes, that's good AC and it looks to me, looking out the hatch, that we are venting something. We are venting something out into the—into space.

Roger. We copy your venting.

It's a gas of some sort.


Here in Mission Control we are now looking toward an alternate mission, swinging around the Moon and using the Lunar Module power systems.

That sounds like good news.


Houston, You're looking good.


Extremely loud applause here in Mission Control! ... Extremely loud applause as Apollo 13 on main chutes comes through loud and clear on the television display here.

    Drum & Bass, Apollo 13
