Imagine being part of a three-man crew, hurtling through space on the way to the Moon, when something goes terribly wrong. You have limited supplies, limited fuel, and absolutely no way for anyone to attempt to rescue you. This was the crisis the crew of the Apollo 13 mission faced as they neared the Moon and were forced to attempt to turn back. Iron Will: Surviving in Space tells the stories of five incredible feats of survival by astronauts who found themselves in dangerous situations in the most desolate of environments. With limited supplies and help a very, very long way away, the survivors had little more than their intelligence and iron will to help them survive.
