It was one of the most incredible space missions in the Apollo Space Mission program. Fifty one years ago this week Apollo 13 splashed down in the South Pacific Ocean after a journey that took Astronauts James A. Lovell Jr. John L. Swigert Jr. and Fred W. Haise Jr. on a ride for the ages. Instead of the intended goal of landing on the moon they were met with a challenge like no other that had them loop around the moon and to get back to earth safely.
It became known as Americas Finest Hour. Mark Larson looks back at the zoom reunion that took place a year ago.
