Apollo 13, The Odyssey

Space Art Collectible, Apollo 13, Odyssey, signed by Astronauts Jim Lovell, Jack Swigert, Fred Haise

Ever since we viewed the photograph of the damage caused by a fire to the Number Two Oxygen Tank to the Service Module, did we then only realize how close we came to losing the Apollo 13 Crew.

During a conference on space exploration, attended by several astronauts, a reporter asked the question, "What do you think was the greatest accomplishment of the Apollo Program". Neil Armstrong stood up and said "Getting Apollo 13 back to Earth".

The odyssey of Apollo 13 ( Odyssey was also the name of the Command Module) took place between April 11, 1970 and April 17, 1970. Feeling like it took a week to get Jim Lovell, Jack Swigert and Fred Haise home, this shows that when a team works together both here on Earth and in outer space, insurmountable odds can be over come.

We'd like to give special credit to Ken Mattingly for his contribution here on Earth for knowing the Apollo 13 Capsule systems so well and measles or not, perhaps it was meant to happen that way.

This piece contains a set of Navy/Marine Corps Astronauts Wings, as well as a set of Air Force Astronauts Wings. The photograph on the left shows from left to right Jim Lovell, Jack Swigert and Fred Haise. The photograph on the right shows the damage caused by the explosion. The patch on the left bottom signifies the 25th Anniversary of the flight and the patch on the lower right signifies the mission, which incidently is an original 1970 version patch.

As for the signatures of the Astronauts, they are on the back of an un-used U.S. Postcard, which has a reprinted four cent stamp on the front. Postcard is also protected by a Showgard Mount.

The piece measures approximately 33 by 25 inches. Double conservation matting, with Ultra Violet Light proof Plexi glass and is framed in "Deep Space Black" metal.
