Okay Houston, we've had a problem

04-09-2019 Apollo 13 commander Jim Lovell spoke in a controlled manner the historical words: "Okay Houston, we've had a problem". How would it be if you addressed that problem with RATIO?

Recently there was a lot of news about NASA's Apollo missions. It's been 50 years since Neil Armstrong took the first step on the moon. Also, the Apollo 13 mission, a year later, was again widely quoted. Two days after launch, an oxygen tank exploded, effectively killing the crew in space.

After many positive reactions to his Event Map of the Titanic, Pieter van Gestel RATIO RCA Facilitator at KPN, dove again in Wikipedia and other sources and this time created an Event Map of the Apollo 13 incident. 

View the Event Map and get a quick insight into the actual causes of this famous incident.

Our Ron enthusiastically took up the challenge and helped KPN analyze this 112-helpline outage.


Event Map collision at the dam near Grave

30-08-2019 On December 29, 2016, a ship was sailing through the dam at Grave. The consequences for shipping and houseboats were great. The water level dropped 3 meters, forcing ships to change their routes and damaged houseboats due to the low water level. An emergency repair was completed on January 24, 2017, which had caused ship traffic to recover only the consequences and symptoms.
