#Houston70 by Philip Gibson

indie ebook cover

What if there had been social media during the Apollo 13 Moon mission?

This is not a book in the usual book format. It is the story of the incredible Apollo 13 mission in 1970 told as if in real time in the form of imaginary social media posts written by the main participants and observers. The narrative is based on astronaut accounts, NASA transcripts of the astronauts’ conversations with Mission Control and live broadcasts of the major U.S. TV networks covering the unfolding drama hour by hour.

There is a list of major sources at the back of the book.

Apollo 13 was a mission that gripped the entire nation and the world. It would test the courage, endurance and ingenuity, not just of three astronauts but also of the thousands of controllers, technicians and engineers back at Mission Control in Houston and across America.

Philip Gibson


I am a teacher and author of over thirty books on ESL and historical fiction. I have taught and lived in (in order): England, Spain, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Hong Kong, Japan and Laos.
In 1991, I took up a position in Laos, met and married a Lao lady and now live with my wife and two teenage boys on our small farm on the forested banks of the Nam Ngum River (tributary of the Mekong) about 25 miles from the capital city of Vientiane. I am a lover of history, especially modern history, and my main writing focus now is to continue to produce historical works written in the unique form of social media feeds.
