Apollo 13 spacecraft went farther into space than
any other U.S. human space flight. It traveled 400,171
kilometers (248,655 miles) from Earth during its
flyby of the Moon.
13 was NASA's third lunar landing attempt. The mission
was aborted after the Service Module's oxygen tank
ruptured. Though the crew never landed on the Moon,
the mission was deemed a "successful failure"
because the crew returned home safely.
