I dunno, I wouldn't say the shuttle exploded though. There was an explosion, yeah, but the whole shuttle didn't explode.

The orbiter didn't explode. The system as a whole was called the Shuttle.

Just adding in more anecdotes for those interested:
The funny thing was that until pretty much when this picture was taken, nobody was really sure what had happened - some of the problems were pretty obvious, like loss of power in the CM, and they knew that they had been leaking gas (an astronomer on the ground saw a strange cloud in the sky, and looking closer, realized it was the stricken Apollo stack - he called NASA and relayed the information), but besides that, they had no idea what the true nature of the emergency was.
Pic related is a screencap of the transcript over at apollo13.spacelog.org/page/05:17:23:00/ , when they finally get a look at the damaged SM, and realized that it wasn't just a leak or a short - "there's one whole side of that spacecraft missing."

I highly recommend the Wikipedia article on Apollo 13 en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apollo_13#Mission_highlights , and strangely enough, the movie with Tom Hanks actually does a really good job of portraying the whole thing, plus it's a pretty good watch even if you're not a space geek.

I remember them saying that in the movie. It was pretty good. I would be pretty alarmed if that had happened.

"Oh. Ya know that half our ship is gone?"

"Well darn."

How does your mom live with the guilt?
And no, an oxygen tank leaked, so they had to get back to earth to avoid suffocating.
