In 1970, the Apollo 13 moon mission developed a critical fault. This movie is the story of what mission control did to try to get the astronauts back safely, and how the astronauts coped with being stranded in outer space
Houston, we have a problem. Spoken by Capt. Jim Lovell, of Apollo 13, April 1970. The start of 4 days of disaster & survival in space. An electrical short led to an oxygen tank explosion on April 13 . Astronauts Lovell,Swigert & Haise were 200,000 miles from Earth with limited power, damaged ship & heavy carbon dioxide. A few razor-sharp calculations & tremendous bravery, the crew & ground control used the remaining fuel & the moon's gravity to get them back to Earth alive & well.
