Apollo 13

rating:

Apollo 13 is a historical documentary movie that was released in the United States on June 30, 1995. Howard, the director, went the hard way of creating a high tech movie, employing NASA's technical assistance in astronaut and flight controller training for his movie Apollo 13, even getting clips aboard a reduced gravity aircraft for a more realistic view of the weightlessness that is experienced by astronauts in space. The story is about a couple of astronauts aboard on Apollo 13, the third Moon landing mission of America.Lack of oxygen and electrical power makes the journey much more difficult, forcing NASA's flight controllers to dismiss the moon landing. Instead of landing on the moon, it becomes a question of whether they will survive the trip back to earth. Will they have enought electrical power? What about the oxygen supply? The known quote: "Houston, we have a problem.." is taken from this story.
