Overview

Houston, we have a problem. Those words were immortalized during the tense days of the Apollo 13 lunar mission crisis in 1970, events recreated in this epic historical drama from Ron Howard. Astronaut Jim Lovell Tom Hanks leads command module pilot Jack Swigert Kevin Bacon and lunar module driver Fred Haise Bill Paxton on what is slated as NASA's third lunar landing mission. All goes smoothly until the craft is halfway through its mission, when an exploding oxygen tank threatens the crew's oxygen and power supplies. As the courageous astronauts face the dilemma of either suffocating or freezing to death, Mattingly and Mission Control leader Gene Kranz Ed Harris struggle to find a way to bring the crew back home, all the while knowing that the spacemen face probable death once the battered ship reenters the Earth's atmosphere.

Had never seen the movie once, but once again try to read in English is quite difficult.If you do not know and talk about the movie, I think the word may be difficult.Part of the story had been forgotten and I had also become well know the meaning.Otherwise, the story is good and olso I could enjoy.
