Commemorate the 50th Anniversary of NASA's Apollo 13 mission with a special presentation, followed by a screening of the Academy Award winning film, Apollo 13.
- 7:00 p.m. Frank Florian, Senior Manager of Planetarium and Space Science, will discuss the Apollo 13 mission – it’s mission and crew, what happened, and what the crew and mission control did in order to avoid a space disaster and the possible end of the Apollo Moon missions.
- 7:30 p.m. Screening of Apollo 13: The IMAX Experience
Apollo 13: The IMAX Experience tells the dramatic true story of the heroic actions needed to bring a three-astronaut crew safely back to Earth after the Apollo 13 space mission suffered catastrophic mechanical problems en route to the Moon. Made with NASA's collaboration, the highly-suspenseful film is scientifically and historically accurate. Apollo 13 features strong performances from the ensemble cast, led by Oscar®-winning actor Tom Hanks, and brilliant direction by Ron Howard, another Oscar winner.
