During the NASA mission Apollo 13 an oxygen tank exploded and caused serious damage to the spacecraft. The dramatic mission was the subject of the book Lost Moon: The Perilous Voyage of Apollo 13 by astronaut James Lovell and Time magazine writer Jeffrey Kluger, and later the widely acclaimed film Apollo 13 directed by Ron Howard. This new featured picture shows a rapidly engineered "mailbox" device designed to save the astronauts of Apollo 13 from carbon dioxide poisoning.

  • I tend to view featured content as having "good weeks" when they promote as many or more items than they feature on the main page per week (seven for FA, FP, one for FL) and "bad weeks" when they don't meet those thresholds. I'm glad to see that FA is having a good week, as the last few weeks haven't been good ones. Sven Manguard Wha? 20:16, 25 July 2013 (UTC)[reply]
