Apollo 13: The Imax Experience Overview

"Houston, we have a problem."

The voyage of the Apollo 13 was one of the definining moments of the late 20th century. The space shuttle's crew had nearly reached the moon when an explosion abruptly began to drain its oxygen, power and guidance systems. A daring rescue effort would have to succeed or Jim Lovell, Fred Haise and Jack Swigert would become a horrific, permanent rotating exhibit within the solar system. A mission about machines became a mission about humanity as a stunned and rapt world watched in silence.
