Apollo 13 (1995, PG-13) is the real-life story of heroism, courage, and survival onboard the doomed flight of Apollo 13. This movie guide worksheet examines the storyline of the movie, while asking higher-order thinking questions about the plot, character development, situational dilemmas, and the meaning behind the symbolism as the movie unfolds. At its core, the film tells a story about faith in technology and faith in the strength of human willpower needed to overcome technological malfunctions in a life-or-death fight for survival. Only 3 of the 46 questions directly related to the physics shown in the movie, so being familiar with Newton’s laws will be necessary to answer those. One of those physics questions hits on a violation of Newton’s Laws shown in the movie. Topics alluded to include the space race, American history, engineering and design, spaceflight, course trajectories, course corrections, inertial properties, Newton’s Laws of Motion, and Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation.
This movie is appropriate for the following classes: physics, astronomy, physical science, general science, and American history.
