    Apollo 13 is a 1995 American docudrama space adventure film directed by Ron Howard. The film stars Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon, Bill Paxton, Gary Sinise, and Ed Harris. The screenplay by William Broyles, Jr., and Al Reinert, that dramatizes the aborted 1970 Apollo 13 lunar mission, is an adaptation of the book Lost Moon: The Perilous Voyage of Apollo 13 by astronaut Jim Lovell and Jeffrey Kluger.
    The film depicts astronauts Lovell, Jack Swigert, and Fred Haise aboard Apollo 13 for America's third Moon landing mission. En route, an on-board explosion deprives their spacecraft of most of its oxygen supply and electric power, forcing NASA's flight controllers to abort the Moon landing, and turning the mission into a struggle to get the three men home safely.

    the argument about stirring the tanks pissed me off when I saw it in the movie. you don't get put in a command module if you don't know what every switch does intimately. astronauts do not argue. They all heard NASA ask for the tanks stirred. they're all up to speed so to speak. yelling at each other for doing your job is dumb people stuff.
    * NASA asks dude to stir the tanks
    * dude stirs tanks
    * Bang
    * everyone looks at each other to verify it's not a prank
    * Houston we've had a problem
    from there they just work the problem.

      can someone just re-edit Apollo 13 to remove the parts where astronauts raise their voice and gene kicks the equipment? that part made me mad as well.

    To augment your experience and appreciation
    of the Apollo Program I highly recommend the BBC World Service produced podcast: 13 Minutes to the Moon, a 12 part series that will broadcast its final episode on the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11's landing on the moon tomorrow, July 20, 2019.

    Great documentary. One complaint, however. The background music near the end was so loud it made the narration nearly impossible to hear clearly. When music that is meant to enhance the film overwhelms the spoken word you have downgraded your effort.

    I might be a little anal here, but CO2 toxicity and O2 deprivation do not go together like peas and carrots. The problems caused by carbon dioxide exist even if there's plenty of oxygen to breathe. Interestingly, the opposite problem is probably scarier. Or, at least, sneakier. Lack of oxygen without too much CO2 isn't really registered by the brain. People have been killed walking into a room with a nitrogen atmosphere and p
    romptly losing consciousness. At least the body knows it's in trouble when excess CO2 is the issue.

    "Now that we've beaten the Russians to the moon." So I dont understand this mindset. If we "win" the cold war what happens? Are our American troops suppose to march into Russia and demand in front of the world that they give us all their shit? Fuck people who support any modern conflict crap with people who have cities and societies with innocent people trying to live. We don't need to endlessly fuel more and more war machines and murder millions more for a better world we need to use that wealth to make it a better one. In 10 years with our military budget even try to grasp the things we could for the whole world with no compromises. We don't have "enemies" anymore its not the fuckin stone age and we dont have to fight for food and resources anymore jesus we can even make fake meat now just think what even a small investment could do.

    46:19 "As the plane descended sharply..." The KC135 flew a parabolic trajectory, so the 25s of weightlessness would start while the plane was still ascending, reaching an apex in its flight, then descending, where the airplane would break deceleration, reach an inflection point, and would 'bottom out' in its flight path, with the pilot pulling up on the stick to get ready for another 'hump' trajectory.

    A pity that NASA quit doing its job as soon as we stopped blasting Saturn V's into orbit.

    The Russians said it quite clearly,that it was nothing more than a *propaganda* move. Man never walked on the moon and Apolo11 never went to the moon. Period. The Russians made it into space,as did the Americans and that is the extent of it. Wake up Losers!

    If you did your job really well and did something astonishing, how would you feel about people portraying you as a fool that can't keep his cool or control his temper (or gets drunk when you don't get your way at work)? I think the inaccuracies were given a huge free pass here. i still like the movie for the fact that it portrays so many of the technical details, is visually stunning and the acting is good, but man portraying the astronauts as hot heads and man babies really annoys me.

    Some other minor inaccuracies: Gary Sinise is shown in the command module simulator, not the lunar module simulator. In fact the lunar module simulator isn't even visible in the movie. What is shown is a mock-up of the LEM that just looks like the front half sticking out of the wall. I believe they used that to familiarize the astronauts with climbing in and out of the LEM. The actual lunar module simulator simulator looked like a greyish box on top of a motion base platform, with some monitors in front of the windows that fed video from a scale model of the moon. Astronauts entered from the back. And during the launch sequence the gantry towers are shown swinging away from the Saturn V one at a time, which looks pretty cool, but in reality they all swing away at the same time since they needed to clear the rocket as quickly as possible.

    I think it's important to note... the Soviets were never really "ahead" of the Americans during the space race years. The soviets DID manage to take a lot of the "first to ever xxx" titles, but it was due to their willingness to take unacceptable risks in order to achieve them. The Americans were (and still are) far more reserved and patient in development, which of course always makes projects take longer to complete, but the final results are always far more complete and reliable. There's a reason we landed a man on the moon and the Soviets never did.

    Look everyone in the US knows that the dream of sending someone to the moon was first envisioned by Ralph Kramden, a bus driver from NY who lived with his wife Alice in a small apartment. They would frequently get into heated arguments and Ralph would say to her "One of these days Alice. POW! Straight to the moon."
