Title: Apollo 13 post-flight Service Module tests to determine reason for explosion
Description:
Sequence photo from 16mm motion picture film of test at Langley Research 
Center which seeks to determine mechanism by which Apollo 13 panel was 
separated from Service Module. The test used a 1/2 scale model with a 
honeycomb sandwich panel and was conducted in a vacuum (41982); Second 
photograph in sequence of three of panel separation test at Langley
Research  Center (41983); Full-scale propogation test at the NASA Manned
Spacecraft  Center of fire inside the Apollo Service Module oxygen tank.
The photograph  from a motion picture sequence taken from outside the
vessel shows failure of  tank conduit with abrupt loss of oxygen pressure
(41984); Third photograph in  sequence of three showing panel separation
