40th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 13 - memorialized with this one statement, "Houston, we've had a problem".

"The third lunar attempt, Apollo 13, April 11-17, 1970, 5 days, 22.9 hours, was aborted after the service module oxygen tank ruptured. The Apollo 13 crew members were James A. Lovell, Jr., John L. Swigert, Jr., and Fred W. Haise, Jr. The mission was classified as a "successful failure" because the crew was rescued."
