“Houston, we’ve had a problem.”

Popularized by the 1995 film Apollo 13, this one line signals a dramatic turning point in the story of the 1970 mission to land three people on the surface of the moon.

It recounts the pivotal moment when carefully laid plans for a 33-hour stay on the moon are about to go awry. The very purpose of the mission — two space walks, a series of geological surveys, and the placement of scientific instruments that would send data back to Earth for long after — is in jeopardy.

It is the moment when the playbook suddenly takes a back seat to more urgent priorities.

Crisis erupts.

And everything changes.
