Location: Darwin Lecture Theatre, University of Central Lancashire

On the 13th April 1970, when the spacecraft Apollo 13 was over 200,000 miles from Earth heading towards the Moon, a catastrophic failure occurred. There followed a chain of events which set off the greatest rescue ever attempted in the history of mankind. In “Apollo 13: Lucky for Some?” Dr Kevin Bowman takes you back in time as you learn what really happened and why. You encounter the scientists and engineers who designed and built the spacecraft, as both humans and machine are pushed to their limits. With every decision becoming a matter of life or death, you will discover how Mission Control put together a plan in a desperate attempt to save the lives of the crew of Apollo 13.
