The words "Houston, we have a problem" were immortalized during the tense days of the Apollo 13 lunar mission crisis. Astronaut Jim Lovell (Tom Hanks), Jack Swigert (Kevin Bacon) and Fred Haise (Bill Paxton) embarked on the third manned mission to land on the moon in 1970. All goes smoothly until an oxygen tank explodes, threatening the missions and the astronauts' lives. The astronauts have to abandon the mission and get back to Earth before it is too late. The movie shows the tensions and challenges the three astronauts faced in the Apollo 13 capsule as they try to get home. This movie is suitable for all ages is a great way to prepare for the space weekend ahead.
ABOUT SPACE MOVIE NIGHT
