So, how did this manual burn correct their spaceflight? Houston knew that Apollo 13's trajectory was too shallow. Days before the mission, backup LM pilot Charlie Duke inadvertently exposed the crew to German measles. An explosion on board forced Apollo 13 to circle the moon without landing. With the first burn of the LM engines working as hoped, the crew swung around the far side of the Moon (some records indicate Apollo 13 traveled … An explosion on board forced Apollo 13 to circle the moon without landing. Days before the mission, backup LM pilot Charlie Duke inadvertently exposed the crew to German measles. Apollo 13 was supposed to land in the Fra Mauro area. Apollo 13 now 155,111 nautical miles from Earth. S-II-10 Apollo 15: July 26, 1971 S-II-11 Apollo 16: April 16, 1972 S-II-12 Apollo 17: December 7, 1972 S-II-13 Skylab 1: May 14, 1973 citation needed] Modified to act as the terminal stage. This burn is to place Apollo 13 on a, Earth-bound trajectory, the apogee of which would be over 9999.9 nautical miles, beyond the limit of the computer's display. This caused the remaining four engines to burn 34 seconds longer than planned, and the S-IVB third stage had to burn nine seconds longer to put Apollo 13 in orbit. Now the task was to get back on a free-return course. And the clock in Mission Control counting down to entry shows that we have 36 hours, 24 minutes until Earth entry. Jim Lovell will stay on the watch in the lunar module. The Fra Mauro site was reassigned to Apollo 14. The three-stage liquid-propellant expendable rocket was developed to support the Apollo program for human exploration of the Moon and was later used to launch Skylab, the first American space station.. The Fra Mauro site was reassigned to Apollo 14.
H P, expected perigee of resulting orbit (Noun 42): 20.5 nautical miles (38.0 km). I need to answer one question and confirm the correct events and the time. The crew instead looped around the Moon, and returned safely to Earth on April 17. Velocity is 4,399 feet per second. Saturn V was an American human-rated super heavy-lift launch vehicle used by NASA between 1967 and 1973. I need to answer one question and confirm the correct events and the time. This is Apollo Control at 104 hours, 11 minutes. Apollo 13 was supposed to land in the Fra Mauro area.
But the PC+2 burn had shortened Apollo 13’s return flight sufficiently that the Aquarius would be able to supply the power needed to charge the batteries. The ground computed a 35-second burn and fired it five hours after the explosion. At 106 hours, 16 minutes, Apollo 13 is 149,706 nautical miles from Earth, traveling at speed of 4,509 feet per second.
We are an hour and 18 minutes away from the nominal midcourse burn time.
