Apollo 13 - Farewell Aquarius
This video covers the jettison sequence of the Lunar Module Aquarius. The actual sequence is covered using 3 angles from the simulator and 1 using the photos the crew took of the LM as it was jettisoned.
This is part 44 of an intended series which will cover the entire Apollo 13 mission from launch to splashdown.
All GET is approximated. Orbiter Spaceflight Simulator is used to cover parts of the mission not covered by available video footage. PAO announcements are captioned for distance from earth and velocity. I have used some poetic licence in the RCS thruster firing sequences. I do not claim to know if these are how events looked in real time. I have added them to give the viewer something to watch while events unfold.
