Service Module: designed to provide consumables, like oxygen, water, and power for mission. It was the primary propulsion area of aircraft. It was the same module where the first fault occurred. One of the function is to prevent the heat shield of Command Module from deteriorating after re-entry into orbit due to prolonged exposure to cold space. Designed for landing on Moon and to serve as operation base and living quarters for astronauts. Played a critical role in the survival of astronauts and acted somewhat like a lifeboat. The objective of the mission was to land on the moon but after 56 hours of flight, there was a loss of cryogenic oxygen into the service module, and an electrical fault occurred. All systems were in nominal condition until the fans of cryo oxygen tank turned on. After the fan is switched ON, a short circuit fault occurred at a fuel cell supplying power to a fan of cryo oxygen tank. In other few seconds, two other short circuit faults were detected.

The tank line burst open due to severe heat generated by the short circuit of cryo oxygen tank. Severe heat builds up in service module led to power failure. This led to malfunction of all life-supporting functions. The crew evacuated the command module immediately and shifted to the Lunar module. With careful coordination between ground control and astronauts, they devised an escape plan using the gravity of the moon as a gravitational slingshot. This was done by flying Apollo-13 very near to moon’s orbit but not that near to be pulled into it. Apollo-13 revolved around the moon and picked up momentum from the orbital velocity of the moon before shooting back home. Apollo-13 astronauts remained the farthest that any human has gone in the dark space, as they have orbited the dark side of the moon. At the right escape point, they turned their boosters which allowed them to come out of the moon’s orbit and gave them velocity, which propelled them towards the Earth.
