Tom Hanks, Bill Paxton, Kevin Bacon, Gary Sinise, Ed Harris, Kathleen Quinlan
Based on the events of NASA's most nail-biting mission, Ron Howard's suspenseful drama follows astronauts Jim Lovell (Tom Hanks), Fred Haise (Bill Paxton) and Jack Swigert (Kevin Bacon) as they leave Earth's orbit, all systems go. When an oxygen tank sudenly explodes, however, their intended moon landing is called off, and Apollo 13's mission becomes a battle to simply survive up in the cold, unmerciful void. A still-impressive Hollywood prestige drama - in space - Apollo 13 takes science fact and makes a truly compelling fiction.
Before the film hear from physicist Dr Ross MacPherson (University of Aberdeen), who will discuss the physical challenges of spaceflight.
