The astronauts of Apollo XIII visit Ireland as part of a European tour. James Lovell, John Swigert and Fred Haise were on a planned landing on the lunar surface, when, two days after blast-off on 11 April 1970, there was an explosion aboard the craft. Demonstrating extraordinary skill and courage, the crew managed to make emergency repairs to enable them to pilot their damaged craft back to Earth on 17th April. In car (l-R): Haise, Lovell and Swigert.
