APOLLO 13 CARBON DIOXIDE FILTER MODIFICATION

APOLLO 13 FILTER

The above "jury-rig" configuration enabled the Apollo 13 crew to utilize carbon dioxide filters designed for their damaged command module in the rescue ship's (lunar module) filtering system. The rescue craft had enough filters for two men for approximately two days. The return to Earth was a four day trip for three men. This required the use of the above pictured filter in the lunar module's environmental control system.
