Earth by Apollo 13 crew
Earth by Apollo 13 crew Apollo 13 astronauts captured this photo of Earth in April 1970. Fifty-six hours into the mission, an explosion forced the crew to abort their landing and take shelter in the Lunar Module. The crew ultimately returned to Earth safely, and the mission became known as NASA’s “successful failure.” NASA/processed by Emily Lakdawalla
