View of Mission Control Center during the Apollo 13 oxygen cell failure
A group of flight controllers gather around the console of Glynn S. Lunney (seated, nearest camera), Shift 4 Flight Director, in the Mission Operations Control Room of Mission Control Center (MCC). Their attention is drawn to a weather map of the proposed landing site in the South Pacific. Among those looking on is Dr. Christopher C. Kraft, Deputy Director, Manned Spacecraft Center (standing, in black suit, right). When this photograph was taken, the Apollo 13 lunar landing had been cancelled, and the problem-plagued Apollo 13 crewmen were in transearth trajectory attempting to bring their crippled spacecraft back home.
