(Vandaag precies 47 jaar geleden op 11 april 1970 wordt de Apollo 13 gelanceerd. Op 13 april 1970 explodeert een zuurstoftank aan boord van Apollo 13 waardoor de missie voortijding moet worden beëindigd. Jim Lovell, Fred Haise en Jack Swigert, de bemanning van Apollo 13, landen door de ontploffing dan wel niet op de maan, maar ze zijn wel recordhouders: ze zijn diegenen die het verst van de aarde verwijderd zijn geweest. Op 13 april 1970 waren ze 401.056 km van huis. Op 17 april 1970 landt de astronauten veilig op aarde. De vlucht van de Apollo 13 wordt in 1995 verfilmd.)

(De volgende dag op 12 april 1992 wordt het themapark- en recreatiecomplex Euro Disney Resort met als enige park Euro Disneyland  in Marne-la-Vallée, ongeveer 32 kilometer ten oosten van Parijs geopend. In 1985 ging Jay Rasulo naar Parijs om te onderhandelen voor 1943 hectare grond in Marne-la-Vallée voor de prijs van 5.000 dollar per hectare. Het contract dat Michael Eisner (president van Disney) tekende in maart 1987 met de Franse minister-president was 400 pagina’s dik. In 1988 werden er 15 architecten wereldwijd uitgenodigd voor een wedstrijd. Het uiteindelijke ontwerp kostte €3,35 miljard, exclusief latere uitbreidingen. De bouw van het park begon in 1988.)

(In de vroege ochtend van 13 april 1992 worden om 03:20 uur veel Nederlanders opgeschrikt door een krachtige aardbeving. Het epicentrum ligt enige kilometers ten zuidwesten van Roermond. De aardbeving heeft een sterkte van 5,8 op de Schaal van Richter. De aardbeving wordt gevoeld tot in Tsjechië, Zwitserland, Frankrijk en Engeland en is voor zover bekend de sterkste die ooit in Nederland is waargenomen. Langs de oevers van de Maas en de Roer ontstaan op verschillende plaatsen diepe scheuren in de grond als gevolg van verzakkingen en verschuivingen. In de Minderbroederskerk te Roermond wordt schade aangericht door neerstortende stenen uit het plafondgewelf. In de ochtend na de aardbeving wordt er puin geruimd op het stationsplein van Roermond. Vanwege het zeer vroege tijdstip van de beving zijn er gelukkig weinig mensen op straat waardoor er, ondanks de vallende steenbrokken, geen slachtoffers vallen. Wel worden enkele geparkeerde auto’s die dichtbij de huizen staan door vallende stenen zwaar beschadigd.)
