About the Event

Science Fiction Films are usually scientific, visionary, imaginative, and usually presented through unique

settings, advanced technology (i.e., robots and spaceships), scientific developments, or by the use of fantastic

special effects. Sci-Fi films are complete with heroes, shadowy villains, and unknown or inexplicable forces.

Quite a few examples of science-fiction cinema owe their origins to writers Jules Verne and H.G. Wells.

Apollo 13 (1996)

Based on the real events of what could have been one of the worst NASA tragedies, the Apollo 13 lunar

mission. This is the story of averted tragedy, and heroism and is a testament to the creativity of the scientists

who ran the early space missions.
