    TheTriumph of Yankee Ingenuity

    This is THE BEST documentary about this mission that has ever been done. PBS has triumphed over all other Apollo 13 documentaries (to include the Official NASA Film, ''Houston, we've got a problem.'') ''Apollo 13: To the Edge and Back'' captures all the tension and drama of the flight and brings it all to the viewer in a deeply touching and poignant manner. Also, the cause of the Accident is explained in layman's terms that help the over all quality of this production drive home the point that exploration is never without risk and space flight is never ''easy'' or ''routine''. Anyone who wants to know the TRUE story of Apollo 13 should see this film. It is outstanding!
