Is the 1995 film Apollo 13 on-topic? The primary plot of the film (the crew of a crippled spaceship struggle to survive and stay on course after a disaster) fits a classic SFF mold, but it is not fiction - rather it is pretty much a straight retelling of an actual space mission/disaster with only light dramatic license taken.
Obviously, questions about the historical facts of the real Apollo 13 mission belong on either History Stack Exchange or Space Exploration Stack Exchange, but I can think of two classes of questions I could see asking about this film right here on SFF Stack Exchange:
- Questions about the dramatic license taken in the film, such as whether the ship control panels displayed in the film have the same sets of buttons, knobs, and blinkenlights that the real panels did.
- Behind-the-scenes questions about the film, such as how the zero-gravity scenes were filmed or whether any of the actors received training from NASA on space mission operations.
Are any of these kinds of questions appropriate here?
