Apollo 13 Flight Path
Apollo 13's flight trajectory, with major milestones. The S-IVB is the Saturn V rocket's 3rd stage, which was purposefully sent on a path to impact the lunar surface to help calibrate seismometers emplaced by Apollos 11 and 12. It was one of the few successful scientific outcomes of the mission.
