Just a heads up that I am in the process of posting the last few videos in the Apollo 13 Full Mission series on YouTube.

What started out as a one-off video to cover the entire launch sequence has now taken two years of work to complete the entire mission from launch to splashdown.

The two recent videos cover the jettison of the service module and the jettison of the lunar module.

The splashdown and recovery sequence will be the last video in the series and will take about another week to put together.

It would be nice to know what fellow cS'ers think of the series.

I have been listening/viewing your work on the accident as it happened and also the three submissions by YouTube user ulysses777x of the Flight Directors Loop audio and it is some of the most fascinating audio I've ever heard. Reading about it was dramatic, hearing it was unbelievable. As I said in your previous thread, I'm more impressed than ever with Jack Lousma's handling of the situation as it unfolded.

I'm eagerly looking forward to your next submissions. I'm sure SM and LM jettison audio with be equally fascinating and I plan to begin listening/viewing tonight. Thanks for your time on this project!

Thanks Rick - am glad people have enjoyed the series - it's been an education putting it all together.

Stunning work. It really brings to life the mission in a very skillful way and I have enjoyed every minute. How many hours will the full Apollo 13 run to?

The total will be over 50 hours of coverage for the 142+ hours the mission took.

I'm confused by the clip numbers (42, 43 etc.) and each is about 90 minutes. What clip does the explosion accident happen in? Thank you.

Each video runs in mission sequence from part 01 (the count and launch) up to what will be the last one for the splashdown (part 45). The accident is on part 12.

Each of the videos is approximate an hour long (some are longer, some shorter - it just depended when the audio ended up at or if the event portrayed was over).

Hope that helps.

The final part of the series is currently uploading and will be ready to view in about 6 hours time (yes, my broadband speed is slow!).

Will you publish a complete (all the part combined into one continuous) video on YouTube?

I don't think I will be able to do that - that would be a 50 hour video of over 40gb - it would take quite a few days to upload it on my 70kps internet!

Wow, I feel like I am watching coverage back in 1970 (only better!) Awesome job!

Finally finished the entire Apollo 13 series, simply great work and absolutely fascinating to hear. I have read several accounts of how Glynn Lunney handled crisis after crisis in the immediate hours after the accident, but reading about it pales in comparison to hearing it. And Jack Lousma proved to be one of the most impressive support crew members of any crew.

Thanks for your work on this, it was wonderful. Going to start with Apollo 10 over the weekend.
