Description

Apollo 13 was the infamous seventh crewed mission that never made it to the Moon. While en route, there was an equipment failure within the spacecraft and it was only the relentless efforts of Mission Control and the quick thinking and calm demeanor of the astronauts that got them all back to Earth safely. With a famous movie of the same name based on it, this mission is the source of the famous “Failure is not an option” quote. 1970-2020. Minted with lunar flown Apollo Command Module and Mars Curiosity engineering metals. Double-sided. 1-3/4″ diameter. Antique Bronze.
