Description: Story of the 1970 Apollo 13 mission, the third manned moon launch. After three days in space, Apollo astronauts Jim Lovell, Fred Haise, and Jack Swigert finally approach their long-cherished destination, when suddenly their spacecraft's power and guidance systems go down--and the supply of oxygen begins to dwindle. The trio now face a grim reality: their crippled capsule, stranded 205,000 miles in space, might never return to earth. With time running out, the crew and thousands of others, including flight director Gene Kranz, brave near-impossible odds in a daring attempt to guide the capsule earthward.
