Apollo 13 book cover."Houston, we've had a problem."

Join us for a film version of astronaut Jim Lovell's 1994 book Apollo 13, which was also published as Lost Moon: The Perilous Voyage of Apollo 13.  In the book, we learn the true story of a "routine" space flight that becomes a desperate battle to survive in this breathtaking adventure of courage and faith. 

The docudrama stars Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon, Bill Paxton, Gary Sinise and Ed Harris.  It is directed by Ron Howard.
