OriginEdit

Apollo 13 was the seventh manned mission in the American Apollo space program and the third attempt to land on the Moon. The craft was launched April 11th, 1970 from Kennedy Space Center, Florida. Everything went well with the launch at first however the intent on a moonwalk was aborted after an oxygen tank exploded. This explosion also crippled the Service Module upon which the Command Module depended. Despite the problems caused by limited power, loss of cabin heat, shortage of portable water and a damaged carbon dioxide removal system, the crew managed to jury-rig the later and return safely to Earth on April 17th. The re-entry through the atmosphere in the Command Module was also a cause for concern since on average the typical communications blackout lasts 230 seconds lasted 327 seconds. During that time the Command Module absorbed the hope to survive and fear of death to protect those housed inside.

EffectsEdit

Ever since the landing the EMP effect remained with the module. Continuously active the pulse is released once a day, around 1 PM CST.
