    It was 50 years ago that the ill-fated mission took off and you can relive it thanks to NASA.

    I've told the story before, but it's worth a repeat.

    Many years back, my best friend was dating a girl who was 19 (several years younger than him). They went to the movies and they saw a trailer for Apollo 13.

    My friend is a bit of a space junkie, so he was immediately interested in the film. When the trailer was over, his girlfriend leaned over to him and said:

    "That could never happen."

    Uh...
