Trivia: Where did the Apollo 13 crew safely land back on Earth?
Gulf of Mexico
Correct Answer: Pacific Ocean
So why is this answer correct? : Apollo 13, which launched on April 11, 1970, was supposed to be the United States’ seventh mission into space, but the ship’s oxygen tank failed after just two days. “Houston, we’ve had a problem,” astronaut Jim Lovell famously said. The astronauts were forced to turn around back to Earth. After a scary four-day journey, the crew successfully landed in the South Pacific Ocean.
