Houston we have a problem

In fact we have a double problem

MMDE: Houston, we have a problem

Current: Houston, we've had a problem

It's not often you come across a Mandela Effect as complicated as this one.

The issue is around the phrase "Houston, we have a problem".

It was first heard in 1970 in the audio recording of the moon mission of that year, but some claim it was in fact "Houston, we've had a problem." So far so good ... but then the movie of this event, Apollo 13, was made in 1995 starring Tom Hanks, Ed Harris, Bill Paxton and Kevin Bacon. Some people are not only saying it changed in the movie but it actually changed back again - "flip flopped" - as it's been described. Then, some are claiming the original audio flip flopped too.

It's an iconic phrase to which many references can easily be found. Plus, it's our old friend Tom Hanks featuring in yet another MMDE.

The Wikipedia explanation makes it clear that the movie changed it from the original, but that doesn't help those who really do remember the original and movie being the same.
