    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.

    All drama input aside. Should this feature portrayed the technicians, astronauts, and Ground Control in their professional form. Perhaps some would learn from that behavior.

    My dad was a LEM and reentry systems QC engineer for the Apollo Program. We were living in Ormond Beach, FL and then Huntsville, AL for the all the Saturn V missions. Thanks for writing, producing and narrating this and all the wonderful documentaries. BTW, the family remains very much involved in things aerospace. Cheers Nick!

    I mean really.. 9:50. .. A German rocket scientist who was given full immunity and brought to the usa is just going to be allowed to "sell" the american public to his "space" race through Disney.. Sounds like movie magic predictive programming to me. But Makes perfect sense to globetards.

    You missed one: 33:12 : That's Hadley Rille (Apollo 15 landing site), not "Mare Tranquilitatis". What's more, Apollo 13, as all Apollo flights, orbited the moon retrograde (i.e. east to west). Therefore, they would have passed "Mount Marylin" before passing Mare Tranquilitatis. Most dammingly of all, none of these sites are on the far side of the moon, which is what they would have been seeing during radio blackout around the moon.

    Sputnik was actually the alternative the Soviets went with. They had a more complicated one plan but it was slow to development and they were racing against the Americans and went with the much simpler Sputnik instead.

    I followed NASA’s missions when I was a kid I had the toy Mercury, Gemini and Apollo capsules, I read all the stories, articles, watched the programs and films about the space program. It helped that NASA was formed a day after I was born.

    Apollo 13 might've been our grandest (manned) achievement in recovering them, with the on-the-spot engineering. Ironically, it was the most impressive to the public but also encouraged a quick ending to the magnificent Apollo program. LBJ said it would be typical of us to build such an expensive and capable system and, in a short term, lose interest and just want shed of it...

    Hey man have you seen the BBC Space race documentary/movie ? Can you do a video on that show ? It might go for a few episodes but it's the best documentary I have ever seen about the "Greatest race in history" ok that's my opinion! But I think you will appreciate it too. I just , well you know , hit that like button and subscribe to you're channel after this vid. Your very great , Thank you from the land of Aussie and "God bless all of you - all of you on the good Earth" Frank Borman - Apollo 8.

    Everyone saying how much they loved Kennedy when in reality he was probably the worst president since WW2. Dude was a good speaker but his presidency was littered with controversy and crisis. Bay of pigs, foreign policy with Russia, which led to the Cuban missle crisis, American involvement in Vietnam and support for an Iraqi coup which led to a horrible 40 year reign of the baath party. For a dude who thinks of him self as a history buff, you should probably read a history book

    When we eventually land on the Moon again, I want it to simply go;
    *steps off/out of lander*
    "We have returned."
    Dude, you cut off the best line of the movie.
    "They take square cartridges."
    "And the ones on the LEM are round."
    *Kranz scoffs*
    "Tell me this isn't a government operation."
    Also, for some reason I haven't seen the re-entry scene with water dripping off the panels yet I've watched the movie half a dozen times.

    If Von Braun would have changed his name to Willy Brown and just told everyone "I'm not Von Braun, I'm Willy Brown, I don't know what your talking about"...no one would have ever known about all that Nazi stuff.

    I got a question to either @History Buffs or anyone else. At about 42 minutes into the movie, Lovell asks Swagart "Hows' the alignment?"... Swaggart: "GDC aligned." Is there any historical relevance to that? I also took it ask Swaggart forgetting that, and Lovell "asking" to save him a little face... but this is a movie, so I have no idea.

  • PsychoMuffinSDM
    PsychoMuffinSDM 24 days ago

    41:00 I hate how movies have to "dumb things down" for the sake of the audiences instead going the route to "smart things up" and ask the audience to learn nuances. I wish there was more media like The Expanse that pushes audience to ask, "why are the ships moving like that?" and if they REALLY wanted to know, there is info out there where they can find out and learn more.

  • PsychoMuffinSDM
    PsychoMuffinSDM 24 days ago

    35:30 Is "bounce" really the best term to use here? Isn't it more like the intercept with earth wouldn't be deep enough to get sufficient aerobraking in earth's atmosphere to slow them down enough to continue a fall? Sure skimming the atmosphere shallow would reduce their apoapsis not enough for a reentry on THAT pass-by (not like they were in a position to wait for another pass-by) but it's not like they would be bounced back into space never to be seen again, right? They would just keep skimming the atmosphere on each periapsis until their apoapsis became lower then their original periapsis (of which air/water/food would have run long ago by then) and THEN the craft would reenter.

    • seymoresaymore
      seymoresaymore 11 days ago

      @PsychoMuffinSDM My view of "dumbed down" isn't because language was simplified, it's when everything is spelled out. Something falls in the background and the character says "something just fell" (that's a bit of a hyperbole but you get what I'm saying). I see so much of that these days. No offense to any professional in engineering or astronautics but most people really don't care about the complexities, and if the language in this movie was accurate few people would understand; that doesn't make them dumb, any more than an engineer not knowing much about biology. Finally, it has to work as an entertaining film first, and the drama and simplified language actually inform the audience more to what happened and the dangerous conditions they were in than if they adhered strictly to accuracy.

    • PsychoMuffinSDM
      PsychoMuffinSDM 11 days ago

      @seymoresaymore ​ Oh I agree, this movie is far from dumbed down, there are far too many other movies that dumb things down or just gets maneuvers wrong. But Nick himself at 40:30 admits that there are still some things dumbed down. I'm glad Apollo 13 left a lot of things that they gloss over, but Scott Manley or Vintage Space, or others go into more detail about. I'm just still curious about the GDC Aligned quip... I feel like there is more in that line, but I just can't find any resources on it!

      But my question still stands, the craft may "bounce" but it would still return to the earth, right?

    • seymoresaymore
      seymoresaymore 13 days ago

      @PsychoMuffinSDM I think you're being over-critical. Based on the "made for chinese audience money" shit I'm seeing coming out of the entertainment industry these days, this movie is far from "dumbed down".

    • PsychoMuffinSDM
      PsychoMuffinSDM 13 days ago
