Note: It's a little late on timing but another milestone in aerospace occurred last month, the 25th birthday of Hubble.

"The Butterfly Nebula shows what happens to a star at the end of its life, when it loses all of its gas and dust to its surroundings. Not only is this a reminder to the eventual fate of our own Sun and Solar System, but Hubble's unique ability to witness this event in a star's long life cycle sheds light on how stars evolve."

"The Tadpole galaxy has been disrupted by collisions and has bursts of star formation out through its tail. But behind that galaxy are thousands of other galaxies. That to me shows the power of Hubble -- it's not just what the telescope takes a picture of, it's everything else it captures at the same time."

"Stellar clusters like this one are absolutely beautiful. You see the transition from the original gas and dust cloud, the place where stars are being born, into this assembly of very young stars that are just starting in on their powerful winds."

"Houston, we've had a problem."

Those words were uttered 45 years ago by American astronaut Jack Swigert after an explosion on the Apollo 13 mission to the moon.

The explosion of an oxygen tank on April 13, 1970, when the vessel was nearly 322,000 kilometers from Earth, threatened to strand Swigert and fellow astronauts Jim Lovell and Fred Haise in space forever.

The crew and NASA's Mission Control devised a series of emergency procedures to turn the spacecraft back to Earth. Their efforts ended with a successful splashdown in the Pacific Ocean on April 17.

Apollo 13 roared into space on April 11, 1970, fully expecting to become the third successful NASA mission to the moon.

Haise Jr.The original Command Module pilot for this mission was Thomas "Ken" Mattingly Jr. but due to exposure to German measles he was replaced by his backup, Command Module pilot, John L. "Jack" Swigert Jr.

The Apollo 13 Lunar Module Aquarius is jettisoned above the Earth after serving as a lifeboat for four days. It reentered Earth's atmosphere over Fiji and burned up.
