__________Это деловое описание насыщенного событиями полёта "Аполлона-13", наверно, не так увлекательно, как знаменитый фильм с участием Тома Хэнкса, однако оно рассматривает эту экспедицию исключительно с исторической точки зрения и вместе с тем приводит сжатую историю первого десятилетия космической программы США. Автор описывает зарождение и развитие программы, знакомит читателя с членами экипажа "Аполлона-13" и затем переходит к этой, едва не ставшей трагичной, экспедиции, начиная с запуска и заканчивая приводнёнием. Книга содержит множество иллюстраций и фотографий. В приложении приводится интервью с Джином Кранцом - ведущим директором полёта во время миссии "Аполлон-13".
