Mug Apollo 13
The mug moon refers to the Apollo 13 space mission, whose objective was to reach the Moon. This mission is now famous for its outcome and adventures: as part of the rocket encountered technical problems, the crew had to adapt and give up their objective. They finally managed to return to Earth, but without having landed on the Moon.
In reference to the Apollo 13 mission, this black mug features on one side an illustration of the rocket and on the other side the famous quote "Okay, Houston, we've had a problem here", delivered during a call after the oxygen tank burst.
