Apollo 13is a movie based on what was to be the third lunar-landing mission. This film shows the trials and tribulations of the Apollo 13 crew, mission control, and families after a near-fatal accident cripples the space vehicle. A mission that couldn’t get TV airtime because space flights had become routine to the American public suddenly grabbed the national spotlight. This is a tale of averted tragedy, heroism and gives important lessons on the impact and importance of teamwork, management, and communication.

Create a Google Slides presentation that utilizes the strategies discussed in class to “Present Like A Rockstar” and then create a screencast via Screencastify where you narrate your presentation.
