Episode Summary

The Apollo 13 Mystery
After NASA put men on the moon, it was determined to follow up this success by making such visits a regular occurrence. After an uneventful launch, the crew of Apollo 13 were well on the way when a small electric motorised fan ignited their oxygen reserve and blew a gaping hole in the side of the command module.
