Episode 25 - Apollo 13 V: Steely-Eyed Missile Men

Released Wednesday, 12th December 2018
Good episode? Give it some love!
Apollo 13 is about to undertake one of the most improvised and dangerous re-entries ever attempted by NASA.
Will John Aaron and the Tiger Team figure out how to power back up the Command Module in time? Has the heat shield been damaged? Are their parachute's frozen?   
This is the final episode of Apollo 13. But be sure to subscribe to the podcast because we will be releasing an Addendum episode at some point in 2019. In this episode we'll take a behind the scenes look at Apollo 13. We'll cover all the material that didn't make it into the series, as well as taking a deep dive into the technical causes of the explosion on board. 
Thank you for listening.
The series is accompanied by bonus material, in the form of photographs and graphics, which will be posted on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
