Apollo 13

So last night, I put in Apollo 13, because I haven’t seen it in a very long time. Turns out, that was a bit of a coincidence, because 37 years ago today, a faulty coil caused a spark in the oxygen tanks, causing a small explosion that crippled the ship.
I can’t imagine what it must have been like to sit there and watch, how the entire world watched as they returned home. It’s a shame there isn’t anything like that today to unite the world. Maybe we do need to go back to the moon.
