Chris' Film Club: Apollo 13

Today in 1958, U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower signs into law the National Aeronautics and Space Act, which creates the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).  Because of this, Chris has chosen the film Apollo 13.

Apollo 13 tells the true story of the mission when 3 astronauts (Jim Lovell, Jack Swigert and Fred Haise) got stuck in space after a liquid oxygen tank explodes. They had to make their way back to Earth safely through ingenuity and inventiveness.

Stars Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon, Gary Sinise, Ed Harris and Bill Paxton.
