      The Apollo 13 Commander immediately recognized the issue at had with the explosion of the oxygen tank and changed this from and moon landing mission to a rescue mission and bringing the men back home. During this process it was clearly stated that “failure wasn’t an option” and he had very clear expectations. He didn’t care what the ship and its components were designed to do he simply wanted to know what there capabilities were as in what they could do as the mission to land on the moon was cancelled.

      The mission went from landing on the moon to getting the crew home to earth and landing safely. He had to take a breath, game control of the crew and focus on the new mission. He then had to report his observations to Houston and have them develop a plan for his crew to implement. He had to continually refocus his efforts as dilemmas presented themselves.

      Apollo 13 quickly turned into a life-saving mission and not a scientific research mission. The leadership exhibited from those involved is what led them to success. The ability to refocus priorities quickly and efficiently was key.

      The commander quickly realized that his priorities had changed along with his mission. With the explosion, the mission changed from scientific research to life-saving.

      As the mission changed he changed his priorities to fit the necessary successful resolution. Moon landing mission to moon landing priority, safely home mission to new priorities of making that happen.

      What did the Apollo 13 Commander do the Mission Changed?

      The Apollo 13 mission started as a lunar landing and after the service module exploded it turned into a life-saving mission of getting the three astronauts home.
