An eerie, glowing crescent Earth seen on the homeward leg of the Apollo 13 mission when the crew were busy problem solving the various technical issues which beset their journey. The mission was celebrated as a ‘successful failure’ in that the crew and those on the ground effectively addressed several ongoing threats to their survival – including an explosion to an oxygen tank – bringing all of the astronauts home unscathed.
