Apollo 14: ‘A Wild Place Up Here’
Apollo 14 was the eighth crewed Apollo mission and the third to land on the Moon. On January 31, 1971, Apollo 14 launched from Kennedy Space Center with a crew of commander Alan B. Shepard, command module pilot Stuart A. Roosa, and lunar module pilot Edgar D. Mitchell. The crew experienced challenges in docking with the lunar module Antares and six attempts were required before a "hard dock" was achieved. On February 5, 1971, Antares made the most precise landing to date in the hilly uplands of the Fra Mauro crater. Shepard and Mitchell spent a total of 33.5 hours on the Moon and performed two extra-vehicular activities (EVAs, or “moonwalks”), totaling 9 hours and 23 minutes. During the first EVA, they deployed several science experiments. Among these was a reflector that continues to be used to measure the distance from the Earth to the Moon. They also deployed a seismometer, which detected thousands of moonquakes and helped to determine the structure of the Moon’s interior. Other instruments measured the composition of the solar wind and the Moon’s tenuous atmosphere and plasma environment. Shepard and Mitchell collected 95 pounds of lunar rock and soil samples. The command module Kitty Hawk splashed down safely on February 9, 1971, exactly nine days and two minutes after launch. The mission duration from liftoff to splashdown was 216 hours, two minutes.

Lunar Rovers. From Apollo to Artemis
When the Apollo astronauts first landed on the Moon, they couldn’t go far on foot. That’s why the three final missions were equipped with Lunar Roving Vehicles, or Moon buggies, which allowed the astronauts to cover much more ground and do more science. Now that NASA is returning to the Moon by 2024 as part of its Artemis Program, it’s considering a fleet of new vehicles that will help astronauts roam far and wide across the surface of the Moon. 60 fps Apollo Videos from Dutchsteammachine

Watch Documentaries to Celebrate the 51st Anniversary of Apollo 11
51 years ago, the historic Apollo 11 mission launched from Pad 39a in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Watch some amazing documentaries to celebrate! Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that first landed humans on the Moon. Commander Neil Armstrong and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin formed the American crew that landed the Apollo Lunar Module Eagle on July 20, 1969, at 20:17 UTC. Armstrong became the first person to step onto the lunar surface six hours and 39 minutes later on July 21 at 02:56 UTC; Aldrin joined him 19 minutes later. They spent about two and a quarter hours together outside the spacecraft, and they collected 47.5 pounds (21.5 kg) of lunar material to bring back to Earth. Command module pilot Michael Collins flew the Command Module Columbia alone in lunar orbit while they were on the Moon's surface. Armstrong and Aldrin spent 21 hours, 36 minutes on the lunar surface at a site they named Tranquility Base before lifting off to rejoin Columbia in lunar orbit. 📄 For more information about Apollo 11, click the link below

Apollo 13 crew talks about historic oxygen tank explosion
Apollo 13 astronauts Jim Lovell and Fred Haise, along with flight director Glynn Lunney, talk about the explosion of the oxygen tank on the spacecraft's service module. -- Apollo 13 at 50: How NASA turned near disaster at the moon into a 'successful failure' in space: https://www.space.com/apollo-13-nasa-successful-failure-50th-anniversary.html From the National Archives - Watch "Apollo 13: We've Got a Problem" documentary: https://videos.space.com/m/M4uWIsyn/apollo-13-houston-weve-got-a-problem-pt-1-from-the-national-archives?list=yVnEb3Sb Apollo 13 Facts: https://www.space.com/17250-apollo-13-facts.html Credit: NASA

Apollo 13: ‘Houston, We’ve Had a Problem’
“Houston, we've had a problem” is the now famous phrase radioed from Apollo 13 to Mission Control upon the catastrophic explosion that dramatically changed the mission.
On the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 13 mission, we recognize the triumph of the mission control team and the astronauts, and look at the lessons learned. The Apollo 13 mission has become known as “a successful failure” that saw the safe return of its crew Commander James (Jim) Lovell Jr., Command Module Pilot John Swigert Jr. and Lunar Module Pilot Fred Haise Jr. Thanks to Stephen Slater and Ben Feist/Apollo in Real Time (apolloinrealtime.org/13) for providing additional footage and audio. Thanks for Andy Saunders for providing additional enhanced images.
What Caused The Explosion That Crippled Apollo 13?
50 Years Ago Apollo 13 was preparing to launch on a mission that would become famous for the wrong reasons, 56 Hours into the mission an oxygen tank would explode, blowing the side of the service module and leaving the command module without power. However the details on what went wrong with the oxygen tank are often overlooked by stories which like to concentrate on the astronauts and the team in mission control during the rescue.
So here's now a handful of mistakes and seemingly safe decisions turned an oxygen tank into a potential bomb, and put the mission in danger. More references on the subject:
Recreating The Air Filter Hack Used By Apollo 13
It's almost 50 years since Apollo 13 lifted off onto what would become the definition of the 'successful failure', a mission where lives were very much at stake and the teams at mission control had to solve problems they'd not expected to bring the crew home safely.
I wanted to re-create the 'adapter' that the crew had to make which would allow the Lithium Hydroxide canisters from the command module to work with the Lunar module's environmental control system. Using only the things they had on hand the crew had to 'fit a square peg in a round hole' so that they atmosphere would have remained breathable for the return Some good references for this procedure are on NASA's history site.
https://history.nasa.gov/afj/ap13fj/15day4-mailbox.html I 3D printed my canister prop using a design from Havazik, he was able to put this together in a couple of hours, I'd have taken days.

NASA Remembers Apollo Astronaut Al Worden
NASA astronaut Al Worden has died at the age of 88. Worden served as command module pilot for Apollo 15 with Dave Scott and Jim Irwin. During the mission Worden became the first human to carry out a deep space walk. He logged 38 minutes in extravehicular activity outside the command module, "Endeavour." During 1972-1973, Worden was Senior Aerospace Scientist at the NASA Ames Research Center, and from 1973 to 1975, he was chief of the Systems Study Division at Ames.

Apollo 13 Views of the Moon in 4K
This video uses data gathered from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft to recreate some of the stunning views of the Moon that the Apollo 13 astronauts saw on their perilous journey around the farside in 1970. These visualizations, in 4K resolution, depict many different views of the lunar surface, starting with earthset and sunrise and concluding with the time Apollo 13 reestablished radio contact with Mission Control. Also depicted is the path of the free return trajectory around the Moon, and a continuous view of the Moon throughout that path. All views have been sped up for timing purposes — they are not shown in "real-time." Credits:

Apollo 12: The Pinpoint Mission
Apollo 12 launched from Cape Kennedy on Nov. 14, 1969, into a cloudy, rain-swept sky. Launch controllers lost telemetry contact at 36 seconds, and again at 52 seconds, when the Saturn V launch vehicle was struck by lightning. In addition to continuing Apollo's lunar exploration tasks, Charles Conrad, Alan Bean, and Richard Gordon deployed the Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments Package, a set of investigations left on the Moon's surface to gather data.

What Does "Set SCE To AUX" Mean Anyway - Apollo 12's Lightning Strike Explained
It's an often told story about Apollo 12 getting struck by lightning, crippling the command module in flight and John Aaron in mission control figuring out the exact switch to flip to fix the stricken vessel and save the day. It's an understandably popular story, but the details are never quite right, so this is my attempt to explain what exactly went wrong and what problems SCE-to-AUX fixed. Here's a few of the references I used to understand what happened:
