The college of business will host a free showing of “Apollo 13” on Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Bengal Theater. Based on the events of the Apollo 13 lunar mission, a trio of astronauts finds everything going according to plan after leaving Earth’s orbit, but when an oxygen tank explodes, the scheduled moon landing is called off. As tensions rise, numerous technical problems threaten both the astronauts’ survival and their safe return to Earth.
