When they were flying to the moon, at a distance of 321,866 KM from Earth, one of the service module from the number two oxygen tank exploded. A fire increased pressure beyond its nominal (1000 PSI) limit, and either the tank or the tank dome failed. The failure also damaged the first tank or its plumbing.
