Stunning professional Ilford b/w 22''x17'' glossy mat finish photo of the damaged Apollo 13 Service module taken shortly after the crew separated before reentry.

Handsigned and annotated by Apollo 13 Capcom Jack Lousma with probably one of the most understated comments in space history:


056:03:17 Swigert: Okay, Houston. Are you still reading 13?
056:03:20 Lousma: That's affirmative. We're reading you. We're trying to come up with some good ideas here for you.
Lousma told us that at this point they were thinking of a 10% survival rate not more for the crew....
Offered for the first time !
Absolut mint condition - perfect to mat and frame !
Jack Lousma served as a member of the astronaut support crews for the Apollo 9, 10, and 13 missions. He received the famous "Houston, we've had a problem!" message.
