Watch – “Apollo 13: Houston, We’ve Got a Problem”

“Houston, We’ve Got a Problem”

You know the name, you’ve heard the quote, you’ve probably even seen Tom Hanks star in the film adaptation. Now take a look under behind the curtain to see the real faces behind the scenes of the Apollo 13 mission. The mission that began with a goal of putting men on the moon, but ended up being a nationally televised test of the human condition to bring our boys back home.

According to NASA, the Apollo 13 mission lasted was 5 days, 22 hours, 54 minutes, and 41 seconds. While that number might technically be true, it had to feel like a lifetime for the astronauts, anyone involved at NASA and really the entire country. The nation was captured by the story of the Apollo 13 mission, and despite being a failed mission in terms of their original objective (to land on the moon), the story would become a success story for the American people and their ingenuity. When everything goes wrong, when all hope looks to be lost, NASA & America persevered.
