What if there had been today's social media during the Apollo 13 mission to the Moon?
This is the story of the incredible Apollo 13 mission in 1970 told as if in real time in the form of imaginary social media posts written bythe main participants and observers. The narrative is based on astronaut accounts, NASA transcripts of the astronauts' conversations with Mission Control and live broadcasts of the major U.S. TV networks covering the unfolding drama hour by hour.
Apollo 13 was a mission that gripped the entire nation and the world. It would test the courage, endurance and ingenuity, not just of three astronauts but also of the thousands of controllers, technicians and engineers back at Mission Control in Houston and across America.
This is the third book in The Apollo Missions To The Moon series. Like all the books in the series, the narrative of this account is based on actual astronaut recollections, NASA transcripts of the fascinating continual communications with the astronauts, broadcasts of the main TV networks covering the mission and the thoughts of many expert and laypeople observers. There is an extensive list of major sources at the end of each book.
