Apollo 13


Apollo 13

Apollo 13 is an Earth based non-Fiction which was released in 1995 and is directed by Ron Howard.

This is the true story of Apollo 13. Halfway between the Earth and the moon, the space craft developed an air leak. Instead of shouting and screaming, expecting themselves to die, the crew remained calm and worked on a way of getting back to Earth safely. The film follows the crew and support staff as they work on their plan. The crew members are Jim Lovell, Fred Haise and Jack Swigert. The film also shows their families coping with the incident.
