As you know based on our discussions about Bob McDonald’s Top Ten Moments in Space Travel, there have been two serious accidents in the history of space travel: the Challenger and more recently the Columbia disasters. They were 2 of the worst in Space History. Lots of lives were lost.
This week, we will be watching the movie “Apollo 13″ which is the true story of a space mission to the moon that goes horribly wrong.
I would like you to research the Apollo 13 mission online to find out the facts about what really happened. We will be comparing the facts with what we see in the movie to determine if Hollywood “got it right”.
Please post 5 things you learn about either the astronauts of Apollo 13 or about the mission itself.
Please do not look up the movie – stick to the historical facts! Remember to use quotation marks (” ”) when using wording from the text that is not your own.
Here are a couple links to get you started on your research:
