(CNN) – On April 11, 1970 James A. Lovell, Fred W. Haise and Jack Swigert were launched into space for a lunar landing. The mission is dubbed the successful failure of Apollo 13 because while enroute to the moon, an oxygen tank ruptured.
The lunar landing never happened. NASA spent days trying to bring the crew home safely and they did on April 17th.
