Re: OT: The Math That Saved Apollo 13 Just Sold for $388,375  Don Shepherd  12012011 That's fascinating Egan, thanks. But I wish this would have ended up at the Air and Space Museum instead of some private collection.
Re: OT: The Math That Saved Apollo 13 Just Sold for $388,375  Dominic Richens  12012011 good example of why kids need to stay in school and do well in math  you never know when you are going to be stuck in a crippled space craft hurtling away from earth and a manually calculated course correction is the only thing that can save you :)
Re: OT: The Math That Saved Apollo 13 Just Sold for $388,375  Eric Smith  12012011 Alas, I'm reasonably sure that I do know when that's going to happen to me, which is never.
Re: OT: The Math That Saved Apollo 13 Just Sold for $388,375  Egan Ford  12012011 Those that know you, know that you'd be just fine. And those that really know you, know that you'd just hack the ship, land, mine the moon for raw material, fix the craft, and still make it home in time.
