1. I think 40 years would have been 2010.

Didn't it launch in 1970?

3. That's okay. "40 years ago today" does sound better.

Sergeant Pepper and all that.

In any case, thank you for posting this. I remember the incident well although I didn't remember that the actual explosion occurred on this date.

So, the Apollo 13 explosion occurred on the 13th. That's one for both conspiracy theorists and triskaidekaphobics.
