They were 200,000 miles from Earth when an explosion crippled their spacecraft, stranding them, perhaps forever. Relive the thrilling true story of the catastrophic flight of Apollo 13 and the crew's heroic battle against the odds in this NOVA documentary, through first-hand accounts from the pilots, their families, and Mission Control. "Suspense and intrigue as powerful as any manufactured drama," writes The Hollywood Reporter.

Great video

By Cbooth151

Comments about PBS NOVA: Apollo 13: To the Edge and Back DVD:

This video could be considered very good. But, what makes it exceptional is the narrator, Will Lyman. He is simply the best at what he does, regardless of the topic.

This Nova was a Staple of My Childhood

By James V.

from Ogden, Utah

Comments about PBS NOVA: Apollo 13: To the Edge and Back DVD:

We had this show taped on a VHS, and as a kid I'd watch it over and over again. Such great interviews with the key players. Great overview of the space race and capturing the essence of the era as well as the details of the mission. Solid story telling. So excited to come across it here.

Great NOVA about getting Apollo 13 home

By David

Comments about PBS NOVA: Apollo 13: To the Edge and Back DVD:

I have a been a fan of NOVA for 20+ years, and this is one of their best. Ninety minutes of how Apollo 13 went terribly wrong and how, against all odds, the crew and ground staff solved unsolvable problem after problem. Gives an old pessimist like me optimism that people can solve really hard problems when they need to. I bought it to show my son and teenage daughter that "quitting is not an option" is a good attitude to take when facing important, hard life problems. They enjoyed the show too.
