A Two-"For"-One Deal

Houston, we have a problem. In this USA Today article about Apollo 13 mementos, Mission Control failed to spot the excess word. Can you?

The Apollo 13 mission was launched in April 1970 with the intention of landing on the moon. The mission was aborted after an oxygen tank exploded. (The crew returned safely.)

Inserting a second "for" in the last sentence doesn't quite merit "mission failure" status, but, then again, it is a typo — and this is a blog that hunts for typos. I'll search high and low to find them, even if it takes me to the dark side of the moon.
