What really happened to the crew of Apollo 18 in the Mare Crisium, the Sea of Crises? A mission conducted in eerie silence after loss of all communications during the astronauts’ first moonwalk, it ended in tragedy when the heat shield on the command capsule failed during re-entry, leaving three dead astronauts inside burned beyond recognition. Thirty-six years later, mission commander Bob Cartwright’s sons make a shocking discovery: The capsule that came down in the Pacific Ocean with three charred remains was not their father’s capsule. And the body they buried all those years before was not their father.
