Rewriting the checklists: 50 years since Apollo 13 reported it 'had a problem' – and boffins saved the day

I remember

as an elementary school student being very worried and seeing parents, papers and the television news looking grim. It was clear that the world was united in prayer and desire for the crew to make it back safely, rare unity at that time. Both the fear and relief was intense. Getting any information as it became available over the years has been welcome as it highlights the best of humanity.

My hat is forever off for the crew and mission control. A beer is not enough thanks.
