That must have been one if the most historic sphincter clenching moments in human history, imagine being so close to a hard unscheduled landing, a quarter of a million miles from any help in the unlikely event you survived it.

It is incredible what was achieved with the available technology and much of that success was down to the quality and courage of the mej involved.
