The screenplay by William Broyles Jr. The film depicts astronauts Lovell, Jack Swigert and Fred Haise aboard Apollo 13 for America's fifth crewed mission to the Moon, which was intended to be the third to land. En route, an on-board explosion deprives their spacecraft of much of its oxygen supply and electrical power, which forces NASA 's flight controllers to abort the Moon landing and turns the mission into a struggle to get the three men home safely. Howard went to great lengths to create a technically accurate movie, employing NASA 's assistance in astronaut and flight-controller training for his cast and obtaining permission to film scenes aboard a reduced gravity aircraft for realistic depiction of the weightlessness experienced by the astronauts in space. On July 20, , astronaut Jim Lovell hosts a house party where guests watch Neil Armstrong 's televised first human steps on the Moon. Afterwards, Lovell, who had orbited the Moon on Apollo 8 in December , tells his wife Marilyn that he intends to return to the Moon to walk on its surface.
