Apollo 13
APOLLO 13
Rank: Jimmy Trane
Nominated by Trane

Apollo 13 was the third Apollo mission intended to land on the Moon. The craft was successfully launched toward the Moon, but the landing had to be aborted after an oxygen tank ruptured, severely damaging the spacecraft's electrical system. The flight was commanded by James A. Lovell with John L. "Jack" Swigert as Command Module pilot and Fred W. Haise as Lunar Module pilot. Swigert was a late replacement for the original CM pilot Ken Mattingly, who was grounded by the flight surgeon after exposure to German measles. The mission was launched on April 11, 1970 at 13:13 CST. Two days later an explosion crippled the service module upon which the Command Module depended. To conserve its batteries and the oxygen needed for the last hours of flight, the crew instead used the Lunar Module's resources as a "lifeboat" during the return trip to Earth. Despite great hardship caused by limited power, loss of cabin heat, shortage of potable water and the critical need to jury-rig the carbon dioxide removal system, the crew returned safely to Earth on April 17. NASA called the mission a "successful failure". (Wikipedia)

 This was a true story of survival that left the entire country in heated suspense to see whether or not the three astronauts would make it back safely or not. The fact that they were resourceful enough to survive in space in such conditions and land successfully makes this one of the most awesome stories in history.

Awesome, of course, tends to beget Awesome. My friend Jonathan Snipes of Captain Ahab (Awesomeoff entrant for the Captainoff) entered a contest on a website to have your song played during this film. This was the winning entrant, and if you stayed until the end of the credits, you got to enjoy the stylings of Captain Ahab during this Awesome film! reply high five3 Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNt0_uSAJ24

I once met the snake wrangler from Snakes on a Plane. I think his name was Jules. Nice guy. Occasionally had difficulties bringing his snakes on a plane, when he had to travel with his hundreds of snakes. reply high five

Apollo 13 is not the story of the Astronauts. Apollo 13's Awesome is found in the story of the teamwork that had to take place on Earth to return those brave men home. The very real possibility existed that those men may have died in space, and that their bodies would have ended up in orbit forever. A gruesome reminder of the dangers of space travel. But NO! Engineers on Earth came together without sleeping for days, developing techniques that previously did not exist to bring men back from the brink of death from as far away as humans have ever dared to go. Apollo 13 is AWESOME!!! reply high five2

I didn't say a dang thing about the snakes... on the plane... But yes, Samuel L's "death" it typically part of the plot. Does that mean that this movie is... plotless? reply high five1

Walking on the moon = awesome. Apollo 13 did not equal walking on the moon. Ergo, I vote for Anchorman. reply high five2
