INTRODUCTION

This is the transcription of the Apollo 11 flightcrew communications as recorded on the command module (CM) data storage equipment (DSE), and subsequently transmitted (dumped) to Manned Space Flight Network stations. Magnetic tapes containing dumped voice and onboardrecorded ground elapsed time (GET) were forwarded to the NASA Manned Spacecraft Center, Houston, Texas. Transcription of these tapes was managed by David M. Goldenbaum, Test Division, Apollo Spacecraft Program Office, to whom questions regarding this document should be referred.

The Apollo 11 mission was flown July 16 to July 24, 1969.

Communicators in the text are identified as follows:

Command module:
CDROOOO Commander Neil A. Armstrong
CMP Command module pilot    Michael Collins
LMP Lunar module pilot Edwin E. Aldrin, Jr.
SC Unidentifiable crewmember
MS Multiple speakers (simultaneous)
Mission Control Center:
CC Capsule Communicator (CAP COMM)


In the text, a series of three dots (...) is used to designate those portions of the communications which could not be transcribed because of garbling. One dash (-) is used to indicate a speaker's pause or a self-interruption. Two dashes (- -) are used to indicate an interruption by another speaker or a point at which a recording was abruptly terminated.




Day 1




DAY 1 - Page 1

00 00 28 53 LMP
How are we doing on that time, anybody? Neil, are you sort of master of ceremonies on time, yet?

00 00 29 00 CDR
Well, I didn't ...

00 00 29 22 LMP
(Singing) Okay, your DRINKING WATER SUPPLY valve is ON.

00 00 29 27 CMP
How about this ... circuit configuration? GLYCOL RESERVOIR BYPASS valve OPEN?

00 00 29 33 CDR
(Cough) ... BYPASS is OPEN.

00 00 29 38 CMP
RESERVOIR OUT valve CLOSED?

00 00 29 40 CDR
OUT's CLOSED.

00 00 29 41 CMP
IN valve CLOSED?

00 00 29 42 CDR
IN's CLOSED.

00 00 29 43 CMP
ECS RADIATOR FLOW CONTROL, PRIMARY.

00 00 29 48 LMP
...

00 00 29 51 CMP
Hey, Buzz?

00 00 29 52 LMP
Yes.

00 00 29 53 CMP
How would you like the camera?

00 00 29 55 LMP
Okay.

00 00 29 56 CMP
PRIMARY GLYCOL TO RADIATOR valve, NORMAL.

00 00 29 59 LMP
Why don't I leave the dark slide - -

00 00 30 01 CDR
Are we ready for that, you think? What's the time?

00 00 30 04 LMP
30 minutes. ...

00 00 30 08 CDR
... to NORMAL, and check the radiator.

00 00 30 13 CMP
It will take awhile, that's - -



DAY 1 - Page 2

00 00 30 16 LMP
Okay, now, is that normal for the discharge pressure to zap down low and to do that? Do you think, Mike?

00 00 30 23 CMP
What's that? I'm sorry, I wasn't listening.

00 00 30 25 LMP
When Neil sends the GLYCOL RADIATORS to NORMAL, temporarily, it - -

00 00 30 31 CDR
It drops?

00 00 30 33 LMP
Yes.

00 00 30 34 CMP
The temperature done that?

00 00 30 35 CDR / LMP
No, the pressure.

00 00 30 36 CMP
Yes, pressure - you might get a little drop in it, I don't really know, but it came back up.

00 00 30 38 LMP
Yes, it goes back up.

00 00 30 39 CMP
Alright, Buzz, here's one Hasselblad for you.

00 00 30 40 CDR
Coming around the right-hand couch.

00 00 30 42 LMP
That seems okay.

00 00 30 44 CMP
Buzz?

00 00 30 45 LMP
Yes, just a second.

00 00 30 47 CMP
Okay. I'll just let go of it, Buzz; it will be hanging over here in the air. Coming up - it's occupying my couch.

00 00 31 03 LMP
Okay.

00 00 31 05 CMP
Just leave the dark slide with it?

00 00 31 08 LMP
Well, I thought about ... the dark slide or something, and then I thought we might need it later for a magazine change; so, I left it with it.

00 00 31 25 CMP
Well, I know there's an orange dot on this ... somewhere.



DAY 1 - Page 3

00 00 32 05 LMP
That looks just a couple of degrees still above the -

00 00 32 19 CMP
Buzz, did you ever get that camera?

00 00 32 21 LMP
Yes.

00 00 32 23 CMP
Okay.

00 00 32 44 CDR
Now, look.

00 00 32 46 CMP
Yes, I guess it's 5 minutes after you do this before ...

00 00 32 55 LMP
It's coming down, but it's - -

00 00 32 56 CDR
Is it?

00 00 32 57 LMP
- - as I said before, that's -

00 00 33 06 CDR
It looks like that's about equal to the limit pressure.

00 00 33 07 CMP
Yes, they're about - they're just about the same now.

00 00 33 11 CDR
Not getting much out of the radiator.

00 00 33 18 CMP
Okay, Buzz, are you ready for 16 millimeter?

00 00 33 20 LMP
Yes. How about a bracket?

00 00 33 22 CMP
Let - Neil will give you the bracket.

00 00 33 40 CDR
And the bracket - bracket slide -

00 00 33 47 CMP
Okay, Buzz, I'm going to have to do something about your couch. You mind sliding over to mine?

00 00 33 52 LMP
No, that's fine.

00 00 33 54 CMP
Could you - -

00 00 33 55 LMP
Can you work on that strap?

00 00 33 56 CMP
Oh, yes, I will. Sure will. The - the one that your strut's off ... instrument panel.



DAY 1 - Page 4

00 00 34 01 LMP
Yes. ...

00 00 34 54 CMP
And your ...

00 00 35 09 CDR
That temperature's coming down a little bit now.

00 00 35 14 LMP
Yes.

00 00 35 41 LMP
Now, let's see. You got an 18 millimeter on here, right?

00 00 35 44 CMP
Yes.

00 00 35 46 LMP
So - Do I push the thing all the way up? Is that right?

00 00 35 50 CMP
Yes.

00 00 35 51 LMP
About with that white mark?

00 00 35 52 CMP
Yes, one's for the 18, and one's for the 75; I – I think just as long it looks like it's out and ... the window, that's the main thing.

00 00 36 40 CDR
Did you get a secondary radiator leak check?

00 00 36 43 LMP
Yes, we did that.

00 00 36 44 CDR
Okay. We're not hearing them, but we're ... Tananarive.

00 00 36 48 CMP
Are we on SIMPLEX A?

00 00 36 49 CDR
We're on SIMPLEX A.

00 00 36 51 LMP
We're on SIMPLEX A, but we're not due over Tananarive for another couple of seconds.

00 00 36 56 CDR
Okay.

00 00 36 58 CMP
What - ... time is 36 something - -

00 00 37 00 LMP
Am I set up on VHF? Can you tell ...?

00 00 37 11 CMP
Yes, just a second. Just a second - Your MASTER is ON; your INTERCOM is ON; your VHF is ON; your PAD COMM is OFF; your S-BAND is ON; and you're in INTERCOM/PUSH-TO-TALK, so you're all squared away, except for maybe VOLUME dial.



DAY 1 - Page 5

00 00 37 29 LMP
Okay.

00 00 37 31 CDR
Now, Buzz, this item here at Canaries. LOS, 23:36; POTABLE WATER HEATER, MAIN A - -

00 00 37 38 LMP
Yes, I got that.

00 00 37 39 CDR
- - PCM BIT RATE, LOW - -

00 00 37 40 LMP
I got that.

00 00 37 41 CDR
- - You got all that, okay. Okay, when was the - -

00 00 37 44 LMP
And the purge check's complete, and I'm working my way down to ECS.

00 00 37 50 CDR
Okay.

00 00 37 51 CMP
I'm having a hell of a time maintaining my body position down here; I keep floating up.

00 00 37 56 LMP
Well, there's such a great tendency to - to try and put a little force ... want to stay there. Just forget about all that and go wherever you want.

00 00 38 11 CDR
Okay, I got the SYSTEMS TEST meter set up on 4-B and ... attitude ...

00 00 38 18 LMP
4-B, okay.

00 00 38 19 CMP
What are you reading?

00 00 38 20 CDR
I'm reading 3.50.

00 00 38 26 LMP
... our attitude quantities ...

00 00 38 36 CC
Houston, Apollo 11.

00 00 38 41 CDR
Hello, Houston; Apollo ll.

00 00 38 46 CMP
OPTICS ZERO is OFF. I'm going to jettison the ... cover - -

00 00 38 50 CC
Apollo 11, Apollo 11; this is Houston through Tananarive. Over.



DAY 1 - Page 6

00 00 38 56 CDR
Hello, Houston; Apollo 11. Go ahead.

00 00 39 03 LMP
Houston. Apollo 11, read you on VHF A SIMPLEX. How do you read? Over.

00 00 39 09 CC
Roger, 11; this is Houston. We're reading you loud and fairly clearly. For your information, Tananarive radar shows you in a 103.0 by 103.0 orbit. Over.

00 00 39 24 LMP
Beautiful.

00 00 39 26 CC
We concur.

00 00 39 30 CDR
Well, we're just coming into the terminator, here.

00 00 39 40 CMP
I jettisoned the optics; I hope they went. Did you see them go?

00 00 39 44 LMP
I heard a little something, but I - -

00 00 39 47 CMP
Don't want to miss that.

00 00 39 48 LMP
No.

00 00 39 55 CMP
Can't really tell here. I think I'm seeing the horizon - out there, but I'm ... far from being dark-adapted; it's hard to tell -

00 00 40 08 LMP
... a double blind on this?

00 00 40 12 CMP
Yes. What were those Z-30 angles? 0.22, isn't it?

00 00 40 18 LMP
That's right, plus.

00 00 40 19 CMP
Sure's a big one, isn't it? Okay, well, I'm standing by to do this - -

00 00 40 28 LMP
Got A and B down.

00 00 40 32 CMP
- - IMU align. Unstow the optics handles. Anybody wants any of that claptrap out of R-1, now is the time to say it.

00 00 40 47 LMP
Give me that little circular Job.



DAY 1 - Page 7

00 00 40 52 CMP
Alright, I'll - I'll look for it, Buzz. Let me get these - optics handles. I guess I really didn't mean what I said right when I said it a little while ... Oh, I knew there was something messed up.

00 00 41 09 LMP
You say you had about 3-point-something volts up there?

00 00 41 12 CMP
Yes. ... and on the ...

00 00 41 17 LMP
3.4?

00 00 41 19 CMP
3.45, something like that - -

00 00 41 20 LMP
Oh, that's - that's the minimum. 3.4, 4.1. And you can whip it over to 4-A, if - -

00 00 41 28 CMP
Okay, 4-A is 3.8. Okay.

00 00 41 38 LMP
No, 4-A.

00 00 41 41 CMP
4-A?

00 00 41 42 LMP
Yes.

00 00 41 43 CMP
And 3.8.

00 00 41 44 CC
Apollo 11, this is Houston. 1 minute to LOS Tananarive; AOS Carnarvon is at 52:15. Over.

00 00 41 53 CDR
Apollo 11, Roger.

00 00 41 56 LMP
52:15.

00 00 41 57 CDR
You want some of these lights down further, Mark - Mike?

00 00 42 04 CMP
Don't worry about it for the time being; I'm potting around with handholds right now, Neil. ...

00 00 42 13 LMP
That battery compartment pressure, Mike, it ought to be less that 1.5. However, it says NA until first vent.

00 00 42 21 CMP
Okay.

00 00 42 22 LMP
It's greater than 1.5; that vent - vent –



DAY 1 - Page 8

00 00 42 25 CMP
Well, we haven't even done it yet.

00 00 42 27 LMP
...

00 00 42 28 CMP
Yes.

00 00 43 13 CDR
Man, we are in the dark, now.

00 00 43 25 CMP
You got any reading off that REPRESS O2 to be greater than 8 ...

00 00 43 37 LMP
We got - No, not quite that much. That's that crazy gage.

00 00 43 48 CDR
Okay, can I have the ... now?

00 00 43 53 LMP
Yes, you got it. ... 50 degrees ...

00 00 44 06 CDR
... here is your acid test.

00 00 44 10 CMP
Okay, what did he say 52 -

00 00 44 11 CDR
52 ... percent, about.

00 00 44 15 CMP
As I say, I can't see ... Let me know if you want me to - come back ...

00 00 44 52 CMP
It's - Menkent.

00 00 44 58 LMP
... ball on that pad - it's maintaining about 39 degrees, Mike.

00 00 45 02 CMP
Yes, I noticed that. Before, it was maintaining less than that; it was abnormally low. I almost asked them about it during boost, and then I decided to heck with it. Damn, it'll be hard to see through these optics ... down a little bit. Okay, proceed to Menkent. There she goes - Menkent.

00 00 45 31 CMP
Menkent - God, what a star.

00 00 45 35 LMP
Nobody in their right - -

00 00 45 36 CMP
Menkent's good - -

00 00 45 37 LMP
- - nobody in their right mind would pick that one.



DAY 1 - Page 9

00 00 45 38 CMP
- - Menkent's a good star.

00 00 45 40 LMP
Hey, I sure wish you'd get out that - that star chart.

00 00 45 45 CDR
Can't see a thing, huh?

00 00 45 46 CMP
No. It's in the - -

00 00 45 48 CDR
Did you look in the telescope?

00 00 45 49 CMP
- - in the sextant. Yes, but I can't see it in the telescope; in the sextant - I can't.

00 00 45 53 CDR
Okay.

00 00 45 54 CMP
I believe it's at the angle we have to mark on it.

00 00 46 06 LMP
It's a little on the chilly side in the cabin. Would you like - -

00 00 46 08 CDR
Feels comfortable to me.

00 00 46 09 LMP
- - would you like it a little warmer, anybody?

00 00 46 10 CDR
I don't think so; I think it's a little on the - -

00 00 46 13 LMP
...

00 00 46 16 CDR
It sure doesn't look - sure doesn't feel like - Actually, it may be a little - it may be a little warm.

00 00 46 20 LMP
Well, my - my feet are a little chilly; see, it's 47. Okay, 37 is - -

00 00 46 26 CMP
No, that's - -

00 00 46 27 LMP
- - is Nunki. What?

00 00 46 30 CMP
Okay. Hey, Buzz?

00 00 46 31 LMP
What?

00 00 46 32 CMP
Did you write down any marks on 30 and on 37?

00 00 46 35 LMP
I was going to mark on 37, and that's Nunki; 30 and 37?



DAY 1 - Page 10

00 00 46 39 CMP
Yes, sir.

00 00 46 43 LMP
30 -

00 00 46 45 CDR
I can see some stars. Well, maybe I ...

00 00 46 53 CMP
Okay, again, looking through the telescope, I'm absolutely unable to tell if it's Nunki, but I have it in the sextant - so let's mark on it.

00 00 47 18 CMP
... you guys would appreciate doing this with old G&N men.

00 00 47 24 CDR
0.01.

00 00 47 26 CMP
0.01, alright. - Shoot, I forget, I think that's gray Gienah.

00 00 47 29 CDR
Cup of coffee around here later on when you get a little time.

00 00 47 34 LMP
You like that, Neil? You want us to record that star?

00 00 47 40 CMP
I got it, I got it; go ahead.

00 00 47 41 LMP
Let's see, what's tearing me up is we're going to ORB rate on this damn booster, and the rate is very evident.

00 00 47 48 CMP
Okay, Z torque is plus 0.152 instead of 150; I suppose that's close enough. Now then, you got those numbers written down, Buzz?

00 00 48 01 LMP
Copy.

00 00 48 02 CMP
Okay. Now I - I - If I remember right, I think you're just supposed to torque without further ado. We give them the time at which we torque. So, as soon as you got them written down, let me know and I'll proceed and you can mark the time.

00 00 48 13 LMP
I've got it.

00 00 48 14 CMP
Okay, here we go. Proceed - torque.

00 00 48 15 LMP
48:15.



DAY 1 - Page 11

00 00 48 18 CMP
Okay, now I - I'm going to verify with the third star, and let's see what that star's going to be. Star number 34 - -

00 00 48 34 LMP
Atria - -

00 00 48 35 CMP
- - is Atria. You might note that, Buzz, also. I think - -

00 00 48 39 LMP
34?

00 00 48 40 CMP
Yes, I think that's the third star; it'll say somewhere in that checklist. Proceed to Atria. Alright, if IMU is realigned, realign the GDC.

00 00 49 04 LMP
0.1 degree. Probably GDC's off a lot more than that.

00 00 49 12 CMP
Okay, and Atria is there in the sextant. Well, you know, it's not right in the middle of the sextant. Of course, I guess - I don't know what - Have you ever heard any rules on what constitutes a good third star check?

00 00 49 32 LMP
No, all you're really doing is seeing that you've got the right stars, it seems to me.

00 00 49 36 CMP
It's there, but it's not dab-smack in the middle of the sextant; it's off, I would guess - 0.02 or some crazy number like that. Alright, having done that, VERB 37, ENTER; ... ENTER, and I'm going OPTICS ZERO and MANUAL, and cranking up the floodlights down here.

00 00 50 04 CMP
God, I'll tell you, the visibility through that telescope is a big disappointment.

00 00 50 10 LMP
It's ...

00 00 50 13 CMP
Okay, Buzz, got all that good stuff?

00 00 50 20 CDR
GDC's realigned, okay -

00 00 50 27 CMP
Reticle brightness ... I don't know anything about that. ... Stow optics eyepieces, okay, that's in work.

00 00 50 35 CDR
And ... out there right now. ... , Buzz?



DAY 1 - Page 12

00 00 50 46 LMP
Neil, I haven't been looking out - My eyes aren't very well adapted.

00 00 50 52 CDR
You got your light on.

00 00 50 59 CMP
Yes, look at those bright ones down here.

00 00 51 09 LMP
Lightning! Is that lightning out your window?

00 00 51 12 CDR
No, I haven't seen any lightning.

00 00 51 15 LMP
Hell, that must be lightning. Either that or it's the ...

00 00 51 19 CMP
You know, no matter how many times I put these optics eyepieces - -

00 00 51 23 CDR
I just saw something. Maybe it is the ... They said that Borman's ... could see it; they couldn't hear it, but they could see it alright -

00 00 51 30 LMP
Yes.

00 00 51 35 CMP
No matter how many times I put these optics eyepieces in their box, it doesn't seem right.

00 00 51 45 CMP
0.01, God damn it! Now that's enough to piss a body off.

00 00 51 51 CDR
... that time.

00 00 51 53 LMP
S-band noise.

00 00 51 57 CDR
We're about to get - 10 seconds until acquisition.

00 00 51 59 LMP
Okay.

00 00 52 02 CMP
Okay, and my optics eyepieces are stowed.

00 00 52 09 CDR
You want me to take your checklist, Mike, and kind of skim through it?

00 00 52 16 CMP
It says here, coming up on Carnarvon LOS at - -

00 01 04 44 CMP
Let - let me tell them about the TV ...



DAY 1 - Page 13

00 01 04 47 CMP
Roger, Bruce. Thank you. We expect TV. We've got it all hooked up. We have not yet turned it on; we're ready to do that now.

00 01 05 02 CMP
Okay, you think we can do that?

00 01 05 04 LMP
That's fine with us.

00 01 05 05 CDR
This one here?

00 01 05 17 LMP
Tell them that we've got nothing to do here but recheck it here for the next 20 minutes or so.

00 01 05 26 LMP
Okay. I'm ready to turn the TV on. Play with it. ... flashlight ... hook it up ...

00 01 06 00 CDR
Want a - ...? Mike?

00 01 06 01 LMP
No.

00 01 06 04 CMP
Yes, I'd love one, Neil; thank you. I just stuck it in my pocket.

00 01 06 15 CMP
Can I give you the wrapping back?

00 01 06 18 CDR
(Laughing) Now that is a problem, trying to find - -

00 01 06 21 CMP
It's a gooey one. Gooey when the paper doesn't want to come off, but thanks anyway.

00 01 06 54 LMP
What was you doing? (Laughter)

00 01 06 57 CMP
I don't know ... I almost lost it. I figured I'd really go along with the ... and put some of that ointment on - so slick that I rubbed my ring off (laughter).

00 01 07 08 LMP
Is that right?

00 01 07 09 CMP
Yes.

00 01 07 18 CMP
Have we got any daylight? I can't see outside at all.

00 01 07 22 CDR
Nothing yet, ...

00 01 07 26 LMP
How are you going to rig that up, Michael?



DAY 1 - Page 14

Well, Buzz, I'm going to hold it out that hatch window.

00 01 07 30 LMP
Handhold it?

00 01 07 32 CMP
Yes - yes, yes, handhold it; don't dick with that.

00 01 07 38 CDR
Buzz can hold it, and you're going to run the monitor; have you run ...?

00 01 07 40 CMP
Yes.

00 01 08 09 CDR
Mike, how about this thing?

00 01 08 16 CMP
REPRESS - let's see, it's supposed to be - 865.

00 01 08 22 LMP
Go ahead.

00 01 08 23 CMP
And it - it kind of varies - not 865, but it's - 830.

...

00 01 08 40 CMP
Well, I don't know how - that ought to ...

00 01 08 44 CDR
I can turn - turn it on FILL for a minute, if you like. That's what we need to do, I think.

Let's get into the Hasselblad ... get the right settings on it.

00 01 09 26 CMP
Okay.

00 01 09 29 LMP
Is Goldstone the only station that's going to get this?

00 01 09 32 CDR
Yes, that's all. That's the only one that's got a scanner converter. We've only got about 4 minutes, looks like.



DAY 1 - Page 15

00 01 09 44 LMP
That must be doing something.

00 01 09 46 CMP
Yes.

How long - -

You got it on infinity for one thing; let me put it down here.

00 01 09 54 CDR
No, no, it's the one with the ...

00 01 09 59 LMP
Okay, it's - it's working somewhat; it's just the question of not enough light in here when I get it.

00 01 10 06 CDR
Yes.

00 01 10 07 LMP
... It's, I think, working okay.

00 01 10 10 CDR
We ought to be coming out into the daylight here in a little bit. Get it all shaped up?

00 01 10 22 LMP
I think it's fine. Now the one thing I forget about this is this zoom.

00 01 10 30 CMP
Do we want to write on this what - what we're taking pictures of? 0.5 millimeter.

00 01 10 46 LMP
Who knows about zoom lenses? This lens goes from 12.5 millimeters to 75; I assume that's the same nomenclature as on a camera. Right, 75 is zoom - -

00 01 10 58 CDR
I would think so.

00 01 10 59 LMP
- - and 12.5 is wide angle. The only thing that confuses me is that it says for vehicle to vehicle - We want to be zoom on 12.5. I guess they just want to make sure you got the other vehicle in view. Probably ... telephoto.

00 01 11 15 CMP
Okay, well, then, I'll put the zoom on 12.5.

00 01 11 18 LMP
Okay. You didn't touch this lighting?

No, I didn't ... Minimum ...

Not much light in here.

00 01 12 04 LMP
What?

00 01 12 09 CMP
Okay. I - I'll show what it looks like inside of the cabin.

00 01 12 27 LMP
Okay, this looks alright, I think.

00 01 12 30 CMP
Point that at Neil or point it at somebody who's in the light. Yes, we'll get it. ... You want to see the monitor?

00 01 12 41 LMP
...

00 01 12 43 CMP
Yes. You want to see the monitor?

00 01 12 49 CDR
Is this all ready to go; I'm going to put it back over here. It's over here under your stuff. Now, it seems to me if Buzz wants his camera to drift up, so what I ought to do is probably - Hey, Buzz.

00 01 13 02 LMP
Yes.

00 01 13 07 CDR
Hey, it seemed to stick pretty well if you stood it up on the - with the lens kind of pointing out. There are two pieces of Velcro over there.

00 01 13 14 LMP
Okay.

00 01 13 16 CDR
There are two pieces on the back of them ...

00 01 13 17 LMP
You think so, huh?

00 01 13 18 CDR
Yes, over, just a little up toward the ...

00 01 13 28 LMP
Now, ... - It's rolling around, so I can start looking outside, upside down.



DAY 1 - Page 17

00 01 13 53 CDR
I don't know, I think we'd almost be better just by looking at the monitor, Buzz.

00 01 13 59 LMP
Yes, yes, but this way I think I'll know how to - know which way to move it.

00 01 14 07 CDR
Are you going the right way for those hoses? It looks to me like you ought to roll over the other way.

00 01 14 25 LMP
Hey, there's something. How's that window?

00 01 15 22 LMP
Brilliant ...

00 01 15 23 CDR
I got your checklist, Mike; you want it back?

00 01 15 27 CMP
Yes, I'll take it back, Neil - Thank you, just put it here.

00 01 15 37 CMP
No, you got Buzz's checklist here. You gave me BUZZ'S.

00 01 15 41 CDR
Excuse me.



DAY 1 - Page 18

00 01 15 44 CMP
... I'd rather have my own.

00 01 15 47 LMP
How does the checklist look to you, Neil? You happy with it?

00 01 15 51 CDR
Yes, it looks fine to me.

00 01 15 53 LMP
Good.

00 01 15 56 CMP
I'll take your word for it, but the SPS and ECS and the EPS are now on ...

00 01 16 06 LMP

00 01 16 07 CMP
Yes, I'll do that. Are you ready for me to hand you your light test?

No, one-handed snap. ... I'm in the center now.

00 01 16 28 CMP
Okay, Buzz, the - -

00 01 16 29 LMP
Alright, I'll put yours on the left.

00 01 16 32 CMP
It doesn't matter, they're all good - far as I'm concerned, one's like another.

00 01 16 37 LMP
As a matter of fact, I'll put yours on the right.

00 01 16 38 CMP
Okay.

00 01 16 40 LMP
...

00 01 16 43 CMP
This 16-millimeter camera, Buzz, with the 18-millimeter lens - you got it shoved all the way up toward the window. I think we can – on this bracket.

00 01 16 52 LMP
Yes.

00 01 16 53 CDR
Okay, that was correct. You - you were asking about that.

00 01 16 58 CMP
And you have 6 frames per second, and it's color; you got 15 minutes worth - 6 frames a second, f:8, infinity, 1/250th.

00 01 17 20 LMP
Okay. The only question is, how much do we want to indicate on that?



DAY 1 - Page 19

00 01 17 31 LMP
Outside of it - on the magazine?

00 01 17 36 CMP
Yes.

00 01 17 41 CDR
How does zero g feel? Your head feel funny, anybody, or anything like that?

00 01 17 44 CMP
No, I don't know, it just feels like we're going around upside down.

00 01 17 46 LMP
... I don't know - even feel that.

00 01 17 49 CDR
I feel the horizon coming up.

Oh, yes.

Buzz, are you ready to - -

... 90 degrees the wrong way - -

00 01 17 58 CDR

00 01 18 00 LMP
Yes, let me get this.

00 01 18 01 CDR
Oh! Okay.

00 01 18 04 CMP
Oh, yes, stand by for sunrise.

00 01 18 09 CDR
Say, we got the rookie with us; he hasn't seen so many of those.

00 01 18 23 CDR
(Laughter) Okay. 30 seconds.

00 01 18 30 CMP
Oh, no, there is a possibility.

00 01 18 33 CDR
We haven't got too many of them on this flight, so you might as well enjoy it while you can. Buzz, how are you doing?

00 01 18 42 LMP
Okay, go ahead and talk.

00 01 18 44 CDR
Okay, I'd like to show this to you while I'm talking. It works like a camera. It has the – The f-stop control is right here, and you set it on f:22 which, of course, lets in the smallest amount of light, and that's a safety precaution. Now, later you'll probably find that you want to go away from f:22. Okay? Under zoom - Your zoom



DAY 1 - Page 20

control, can you see? The zoom is the middle one, and it's 12.5 millimeters on the middle one – See the 12.5 millimeters? That's the zoom.

00 01 19 18 LMP
Yes.

00 01 19 19 CDR
Focus is on infinity. You ought to just leave that on infinity; no doubt about that. Now, the zoom, they may want you to zoom in on the horizon a little bit, or the land or whatever. I'd start out with a wide angle at 12.5, and I'd start out with this on f:22 just for protection against getting too much light in. In all likelihood, you'll have to change that a little bit.

00 01 19 46 LMP
I think that - that's going to do it.

00 01 19 55 CDR
Yes, that looks good. I don't see how that can miss.

00 01 19 57 CMP
Jesus Christ, look at that horizon!

00 01 19 59 CDR
Isn't that something?

00 01 20 00 CMP
God damn, that's pretty; it's unreal.

Get a picture of that.

Neil, could you look around over there?

00 01 22 32 CDR
Yes, I'll look.

00 01 22 35 CMP
I don't know if we want to go through any wild contortions looking for it - Do we have to throw some other switches?

No, the switches are all thrown.

00 01 22 45 CMP
... under you.

00 01 22 57 CMP

00 01 25 25 LMP
Not yet - flicking an awful lot.

00 01 25 26 CDR
Well, that's ... - It looks to me like you're home free. Just remember now, you're going to have to get that f-stop probably off 22, maybe not – focus stays on infinity and the zoom beats me. You can take your choice, you can zoom with that thing all the way in if you take it fairly slowly.

That's right, 4356.

Yes.

And - no - no, I'm sure about that minus.

Well, give me an example.

Well, Mattingly assured me that I was going to have a circular velocity versus altitude, you know, when they get me at 100 miles on the other side?

It's not in here, either, I looked.

Gee, I almost went to sleep then.

Well, we should have Tananarive. How about going - pressing ahead with the sequence pyro arm?

00 02 10 31 CDR
Okay, let me align the GDC.

Apollo 11, this is Houston. Thrust is good; everything's still looking good.

That's about like a pitch change rather than an acceleration increase. Did it feel that way to you?

Okay. We got a lighted horizon at 2-1/2 minutes. Pretty horizon.

EMS and G&N CALS together.



DAY 4 - Page 59

03 03 50 36 LMP
Okay.

03 03 50 38 CMP
Pitch trim is up at 1.5 degrees, cycling about that, which is a little bit off the SIM value. Yaw trim is cycling about zero. Chamber pressure - -

03 03 50 49 LMP
...

03 03 50 50 CMP

03 03 50 51 LMP

Okay, that should be gray -

03 03 51 13 CMP
g feels sort of pleasant, doesn't it? We're measuring just a shadow over zero g on the g-meter.

03 03 51 19 LMP
Tank pressures are good.

03 03 51 20 CMP
Okay. The chamber pressure is holding steady as a rock. It's holding - it's building up a little bit, actually; it's up around 96 now. Gimbals are sure a little bit busier than I would have guessed.

03 03 51 36 CDR
That's a little more chamber pressure than they were predicting.

03 03 51 42 CMP
Yes, they're all plus 95.

03 03 51 44 CDR
We may - -

03 03 51 45 CMP

Man, I'm not going to look at them.

03 03 52 00 CDR

35 more seconds, and we'll be out of mode 2.

03 03 52 29 LMP

Chamber pressure continuing; it's up to about 97 - 98 percent.

03 03 52 35 LMP

03 03 52 36 CMP
Yes, there's a little pinging in there. That might have jammed; keep your arms off the cockpit, ... all day to look at that thing.

03 03 52 42 LMP
Look at that thing; that's just where I want it. What do you think about that? A tad low. We're not going to - match it - ... creep up. Okay? Pressure is on INCREASE - -

03 03 53 04 CDR
Tank pressures are still good.

03 03 53 05 LMP

03 03 53 07 CMP
Chamber pressure - -

03 03 53 08 LMP
Take a look at this.

03 03 53 09 CMP

We're well into mode 3.

03 03 54 10 CDR
Look at the ...

03 03 54 11 CMP
..., didn't recognize it ....

03 03 54 23 CMP
Pitch trim is holding a little over 2; it's oscillating between 2 and 2.4, roughly. Yaw trim is oscillating between minus 0.5 and zero. It's just sort of aimlessly wandering back and forth between those values. Rates are still wandering; they're deadbanding the rates in all three axes; they're plus or minus 0.1 a degree.

03 03 54 53 CDR
We're now predicting 5 seconds early, 05:57.

03 03 54 57 CMP
Chamber pressure is 100 psi even.

03 03 55 11 CMP
Ball number 1 and ball number 2 both right on value. Roll zero, pitch 225, roughly, and yaw 348; and hold.

03 03 55 29 LMP
Okay, going to get the DELTA-V switches OFF right at shutdown?

Something really peppered that one. There's a lot less variation in color than I would have thought, you know, looking down?

03 04 05 26 LMP
Yes, but when you look down, you say it's brownish color?

03 04 05 29 CMP
Sure.

03 04 05 32 LMP
Oh, golly, let me have that camera back. There's a huge, magnificent crater over here. I wish we had the other lens on, but God, that's a big beauty. You want to look at that guy, Neil?

03 04 05 43 CDR
Yes, I see him.

03 04 05 45 LMP
He's coming your way.

Where is that dark spot?

The dark spot's right up here. You want to get the other lens on?

Yes.

03 04 06 07 CMP
Don't you want to get the earth coming up? It's going to be 9 minutes.

Yes, let's take some pictures here, first.

03 04 06 15 CMP
Well, don't miss that first one.

See how am I doing. Yes, you're right.

Yes, right.

Plenty of earthrises, I guess.

03 04 06 37 CDR
Yes, we are.

03 04 06 38 CMP
Are we about there?

03 04 06 40 CDR
Boy, look at that ... crater. You can probably see him right there.

03 04 06 44 CMP
Yes, that's what I was talking about just a minute ago. It's kind of hard to believe that that's volcanic and formed by some faulting, isn't it? I don't believe that - but it's such a perfect straight line.

03 04 07 05 CMP
Hope none of those meteors come by right now.

03 04 07 18 CMP
Let me look through the sextant, Neil.

03 04 07 41 CMP
Well, where's the freaking earth going to be now? I'm confused.

In plane, I hope.

How are you doing on your roll there?

Well, we got about another 60 degrees to go. When's AOS?

Okay.

Yes, I just took one. Can take another one here when he gets around a little better. It's fantastic!

03 04 10 35 CDR
That's kind of a foggy window.

03 04 10 37 CMP
That's a horrible window. It's too bad we have to shoot through this one, but - Oh, boy, you could spend a lifetime just geologizing that one crater alone, you know that?

03 04 10 51 CDR
You could.

03 04 10 53 CMP
That's not how I'd like to spend my lifetime, but - picture that. Beautiful!

03 04 11 01 LMP
Yes, there's a big mother over here, too.

03 04 11 07 CMP
Come on now, Buzz, don't refer to them as big mothers; give them some scientific name.

03 04 11 17 LMP
It sure looks like a lot of them have slumped down.

03 04 11 20 CMP
A slumping big mother. Well, you see those every once in a while.

03 04 11 26 LMP
Most of them are slumping. The bigger they are, the more they slump - that's a truism, isn't it?

03 04 11 41 LMP
That is, the older they get.

03 04 11 50 CDR
Well, we're at 180 degrees, and now we're going to want to stop that and start a slow pitchdown. We want to go - -

Pitchdown, so we're looking forward.

Pitchdown, so we're looking forward, alright. I wonder what kind of a rate we ought to - -

We got 4 minutes to get down.

03 04 12 13 CMP
Alright.

03 04 12 14 LMP
Never make it. There's a couple of new craters.

03 04 12 25 CDR
There's a good view of that -

03 04 12 29 LMP
Look warm down there, Neil?

03 04 12 32 CDR
I sure can't tell.

03 04 12 35 LMP
Looks hotter than hell to me. Boy, look at the size of that one.

03 04 12 47 CMP
Golly! Whoo! Get another picture of that big fellow.

Yes. I'm going to take one out here of him.

DAY 4 - Page 75

03 04 13 26 CDR
What are you going to do on that one?

03 04 13 29 CMP
Oh, I guess - get 10 pictures of the moon.

03 04 13 36 LMP
What did you want, Mike?

03 04 13 39 CMP
A gimbal angle to pitch to - if it's pitchdown 70 - why, let's see, from 226, that's 70, that's 296?

03 04 13 54 LMP
Yes, you were at 2 -

03 04 13 58 CMP
296, I would guess. How many minutes we got – to AOS?

About another minute and a half.

We might make it in time.

Well, let's see - when we come over the hill next time, we're supposed to have them on the high gain, I think.

Okay.

Minus 20; yes, that would be better.

03 05 45 28 CMP

03 05 45 29 LMP
That's okay assuming I'm at the right attitude, but I ain't going to be at the right attitude - not without wasting a lot of gas. Put -

03 05 45 36 CMP
That's fine, but -

If you did, it would be very interesting that way.

03 05 45 46 LMP
Yes. Oh, crap.

03 05 45 55 CDR
We get HIGH GAIN and we get TV at the same time - -

03 05 45 58 CMP
Well, I better start maneuvering then; doggone it, I've been yawed out of plane somehow. Let's see,



DAY 4 - Page 78

we're pitched down - we want to pitch back up - pitched down, doggone it. ACCEL COMMAND, pitch down.

03 05 46 17 CDR
Okay, well - are we going to unlock the camera store and get all that claptrap put together?

03 05 46 23 LMP
Yes.

03 05 46 24 CDR
Okay.

03 05 46 42 LMP
Which window you want to operate out of, so I can figure out how to put the monitor on?

03 05 46 48 CDR
Well, I suppose the best one would be the center window, don't you think?

03 05 46 57 LMP
Probably, I don't know; wait until we get into attitude.

03 05 47 01 CDR
Get into attitude - see what we think.

03 05 48 19 CMP
Oh, shit; this pitch here is no good; 32, huh? Pitch 315 I want to be at, huh? Alright. They keep - all they do is they say ORB rate and that little attitude right there and right there applies to the rest of this page, all of that page, and over to this page.

03 05 48 46 CDR
Okay, so that's the one we'll do.

03 05 48 50 CMP
Okay, that's the way I'm rolling.

03 05 48 51 CDR
And we'll take the - we'll have HIGH GAIN - -

03 05 48 54 CMP
Yes.

03 05 48 55 CDR

03 05 49 02 CMP
Okay.

We'll have to give them pictures of the moon.

You got - you got high gain right now, I mean the angles, right now.

No. Ne should have wrapped that thing up during ...

03 08 15 24 CDR
Check the increase that time?

03 08 15 26 LMP
Huh?

03 08 15 27 CDR
Did you check the increase that time?

03 08 15 29 LMP
If it increased, it's going to stay increased from now on.

03 08 15 33 CDR
Okay.

03 08 15 34 LMP
But I waited for it to start an upward trend on the first burn.

03 08 15 37 CDR
Understand; that's alright.

03 08 15 41 CMP
Alright - back to the flight plan.

03 08 15 56 CMP
Yes, roll 180, pitch down 81, ORB rate. God damn, here comes the draft again.

03 08 16 11 CDR
Okay, we're supposed to start charging battery A.

03 08 16 18 CMP
Charge battery A, huh?

03 08 16 22 CDR
Let's see what we have; SPS monitor check - -

03 08 16 30 CMP
Two breakers out there; two breakers out there - BAT B, BAT B. BAT A, you say - Neil?

03 08 16 42 CDR
BAT A, yes - if you please. Charging BAT A, then on to - -

03 08 16 48 LMP
Then roll 180, and then we'll talk about this pitchdown, alright?

03 08 16 52 CDR
Then you might as well go to your - 293 INERTIAL, I guess.

03 08 17 05 CMP
Man, that's a gas waster. Soon as I get around here, I'll start it. We'll pass through ORB rate at some point. Takes forever and a day to get around here.

03 08 17 31 LMP
It's going to be a long time before that battery gets back up to 39-1/2 volts.

03 08 17 45 LMP
We done plumb tuckered that one out.

03 08 17 49 CDR
LOI 1 could've got to it, I imagine.

03 08 17 52 CMP
Yes.

03 08 18 14 LMP
Are you going to maintain ORB rate?

03 08 18 17 CMP
Yes, I guess so. It's going to be sort of a passthrough ORB rate kind of thing because, see if I whip - do it in a hurry, why I got to pitch down 80 degrees, stop the pitch, or stop almost all of it, except for the ORB rate amount. That's going to waste a hell of a lot of gas.

03 08 18 32 LMP
Do we have to do anything - to the O2 to pressurize the LM?



DAY 4 - Page 96

03 08 18 39 CDR
No, we haven't - small enough – DELTA-P -

03 08 18 46 LMP
That's 0.9.

03 08 18 48 CDR
0.9?

03 08 18 49 LMP
Yes.

03 08 18 50 CMP
Yes, we have to build up pressure a little bit.

03 08 18 55 CDR
Build up that cabin pressure just a little bit, and I'll start the DIRECT O2 valve, OPEN.

03 08 18 57 LMP
It says observe the lunar surface.

03 08 19 02 CMP
That's what it says you ought to supposed to be doing.

03 08 19 14 LMP
It's brown; it's brown.

03 08 19 17 CMP
Brown all around. There's no doubt which way that - little crater hit.

03 08 19 42 LMP
Here's that same one going by again, Neil, remember? That bright Job?

03 08 19 51 CDR
Yes.

03 08 20 03 LMP
Man, there's white stuff all over - and it's black right around the rim.

03 08 20 10 CMP
Hey, well, I'm - while this thing's rolling over, I'm going to take a pee; I'm going to go pee.

03 08 20 16 CDR
180, if you don't mind.

03 08 20 18 LMP
That's a spectacular crater.

03 08 20 23 CDR
Did you shoot some pictures while you were over there?

03 08 20 25 CMP
No, it's just going by - we'd better get it later; there will be better times. If the damn antenna isn't in the way -

03 08 20 42 CMP
Boy, there must be nothing more desolate than to be inside some of these small craters, these conical ones.



DAY 4 - Page 97

03 08 20 50 CDR
People that live in there probably never get out.

03 08 20 54 CMP
Yes, I think you're right. Boy, you can really see the slumping, though. Most of the - You can see where it's all gathered down in the bottom in the corner; you know, on the edge - where a lot of the white stuff has dribbled on down – and evidently it gets covered over after a while with a - a darker layer. There's always a certain amount of the white stuff right in the edges. Pretty characteristic of all of these – white conical ones.

03 08 21 50 CMP
Yes, you know, you can change the color of what you're looking at by moving your head to a different spot in the window - and looking in a different direction.

03 08 22 25 LMP
And that must be big ... right down there.

03 08 22 45 CMP
I haven't heard any woo-woo's.

03 08 22 49 CDR
Is there something we should be woo-wooing about?

03 08 22 56 CMP
Wait until we get the VHF on, then we'll hear the woo-wooing.

03 08 22 59 CDR
Okay.

03 08 23 18 LMP
Man, I sure hate to say it based on looking through this monocular, but there's a white spot that's just like a crater - looks like an awful lot under these small fresh ones in the bottom of this rather old crater, but right in the center of it, it looks like instead of there being a crater, looks like it's a rock. ... My eyes deceiving me.

03 08 23 51 CMP
How's our roll doing, Neil?

03 08 23 53 CDR
Oh, you got about 30 degrees to go.

03 08 23 55 CMP
Oh, boy!

03 08 23 56 CDR
Okay.

03 08 23 58 LMP
How far you going to roll?



DAY 4 - Page 98

03 08 24 00 CMP
Over and over.

03 08 24 30 CDR
Got that DIRECT O2 ..., didn't you?

03 08 24 33 CMP
Yes, just a tiny bit.

03 08 24 34 CDR
Okay.

03 08 24 42 CMP
It'd be kind of interesting to see some of this dump go on straight from polar orbit. Wonder how long it's going to take before it impacts?

03 08 24 53 CDR
It obviously - is not really in polar orbit if it's going off - going off that way. Yes, it's inclined to the small angle.

03 08 25 03 CMP
Sure looks like it.

03 08 25 04 CDR
It's going straight out there through. That's real funny.

03 08 25 13 LMP
Son of a gun, that one's got a little – little curve on it.

03 08 25 23 CMP
Would you believe that, Neil? One went out and curved around like that. Can you explain that?

03 08 25 32 CDR
I guess it just glanced off another particle or something.

03 08 25 35 CMP
Oh, no, no, no, no; if it's curved.

03 08 25 40 CDR
It had a little bubble in it that came to the surface and went kapoom and - -

03 08 25 49 LMP
I think what's really happening is - we're rolling and - it's changing the angle that I'm looking out the window.

Let's see, I want to pitch down 80 degrees to - - ... 293, down 293, I believe that, I wonder what rate would be reasonable –



DAY 4 - Page 99

Okay, it's about 7 minutes until AOS.

03 08 26 38 LMP
Well, Mike probably let him out.

03 08 26 45 CMP
Okay, that ought to almost get it there and, damn, I don't want to see any more than that.

03 08 26 58 LMP
You can open the battery ... pad.

03 08 27 11 CMP
That ought to be enough.

03 08 27 31 LMP
...

03 08 28 02 CMP
Alright, where are we? We're pitching down. Gee, it's too bad we can't stop right here and observe the earth come up. You know, we ought to get that picture one time.

03 08 28 20 CDR
We probably can do it. You could stop it right here if you wanted to spend the gas.

03 08 28 25 CMP
Yes. That's the only trouble, the doggone gas. What are you on?

03 08 28 42 CMP
A picture looking out over the LM as well.

03 08 28 45 CDR
Yes.

03 08 28 46 LMP
Shouldn't be a bad picture. Why don't we stop it?

03 08 28 48 CMP
Okay.

03 08 28 56 CDR
We ought to be able to get high gain from this attitude, shouldn't we?

03 08 29 10 CDR
Think we ought to get the long lens on, Mike?

03 08 29 12 CMP
Yes, we ought to get the 250 - we ought to do it at 250.

You've got 4 minutes; that's plenty, Now, we're going to want to - -

03 08 29 22 CMP
Are we at a good enough attitude? I hope so. We are out this window, babe, but we're not out that one. If the earth is right there, that's where it's coming up, huh? Better be.

03 08 29 34 CDR
You want color?

03 08 29 35 CMP
Ah - -

03 08 29 37 CDR
We better have color.

Yes, we want color.

Oh dear. Dumbkopf!

Prior planning prevents poor performance.

03 08 32 30 CMP
No. Might as well put the other one back on.

Wow!

You got it, huh?

I think it focused the second one a little bit better. I think it's beautiful. Just fabulous. Not really sure what you're looking at - but there's some mighty big fresh rocks down in that crater.

03 08 33 37 LMP
The walls actually look pockmarked. Sure enough, and they're not filled in. Pockmarked and it looks like somebody's painted white paint vertically down the edges and then it's been eaten away.

Yes.

Before 83 hours?



DAY 4 - Page 108

03 10 03 06 CDR
Wasn't like this yesterday - must be because the sun was on it.

03 10 03 24 LMP
Boy, look at that big mother coming up there. Looks like we're heading for - ... over the horizon.

03 10 04 22 LMP
I don't think there's any place except in the – in here, that it says anything about 16-millimeter footage -

03 10 04 33 CDR
In the card, right?

03 10 04 35 LMP
No, I'm thinking about for the descent. Here we are; 16 millimeter, HC-EX, f:4, 500, infinity, 6 frames per second. Okay.

03 10 05 14 CDR
You got the flight plan handy, Mike?

03 10 05 16 CMP
Yes, I have; just a second.

03 10 05 19 CDR
I don't want it up here; I just want you to - when you get a chance, to read off the items that are on there, make sure we got them.

03 10 05 26 CMP
It says perform housekeeping chores, stow helmets, stowage bags; unstow mirror, checklist, and disposal assembly. Stow interim stowage assembly, unstow and configure for use 16 millimeter, HC-EX, f:4, 500, infinity, 6 frames per second. That's all it says - on that page. That's where we are now. The next thing is an hour from now when we transfer to LM power and activate the COMM.

03 10 06 04 LMP
12 feet per second - half an hour.

03 10 06 15 CMP
Did you say something about taking pictures right now?

03 10 06 18 CDR
No, no; stop the camera.

03 10 06 21 CMP
Yes, I know, I don't think it'd take a very good picture right now.

03 10 06 29 LMP
One thing, when you get way up here, you can - see a lot more of that secondary strut.

03 10 06 39 CMP
No, that thing - that's holding up those damn baffles.



DAY 4 - Page 109

03 10 06 51 LMP
Well, if we could get a towel, we could get us a couple of fair-to-middling pictures out of here.

03 10 06 59 CDR
Alright. You want one?

03 10 07 01 LMP
Yes. Maybe - Some of it will come off, anyway.

03 10 09 05 LMP
Hand me a towel when you get a chance.

03 10 09 14 CDR
... left window ...

03 10 09 49 CDR
This one's getting pretty well cleared off over here on the left.

03 10 10 03 LMP
You want the COAS in the forward window for undocking, huh? And you don't want the filter attached? I stuck it up here.

03 10 11 03 LMP
All that'll do is warm it up.

03 10 11 42 LMP
When do we have AOS?

03 10 11 50 CDR
Well, we - we should have AOS in - oh - 16 - 18 - in about another 20 minutes.

03 10 12 44 LMP
Alright, then, I think - the way we're sitting, why, we're going to be able to get a picture – of the earth coming right up there. What do you think about that?

03 10 14 07 CMP
Unique feature - photography (laughter). ... on the top of it.

03 10 14 34 LMP
What have you been using, 5.6 at 1/250th?

03 10 14 52 CMP
Yes. ...

0S 10 15 10 LMP
What do you know, it works!

03 10 15 18 CDR
I could sure get the stop watch, huh?

03 10 15 22 LMP
Yes, you have the exact time to AOS - because I don't have my watch - set up for that.

03 10 15 29 CDR
...

03 10 15 30 LMP
...



DAY 4 - Page 110

03 10 15 32 CMP
I'm just fooling around; what do you need - AOS time? AOS is going to be - well, let's see - 82:30 - about 15 minutes from now.

03 10 15 50 LMP
Okay. I'll get another good picture of what comes along. Well, hell, I guess we might as well load the other camera and make sure it works, too, huh?

03 10 16 00 CDR
Adjust the - chronometer and put the cables in it, huh?

03 10 16 05 LMP
Yes.

03 10 16 06 CMP
Well, look, if we load this one - if I put the film on this one, and take a picture or two, well, I'll have to take it back off again; that's the only trouble. I won't have to, but it doesn't stow as neatly. If you don't mind doing - powered descent with the camera in there, I think that's probably alright. Well, wait a minute, I bet I could put this one loaded where the other one goes -

03 10 16 47 CDR
Where have you hid the shaving cream, Mike?

03 10 18 12 CDR
No wonder - ...

03 10 18 20 CMP
Uh, ...

03 10 18 25 CDR
... that's the reason - -

03 10 18 26 CMP
No, I don't think you know; I don't think you know; I don't see how you know.

03 10 18 30 LMP
Hey, Neil, you see any need for keeping this thing?

03 10 18 33 CDR
What's that?

03 10 18 34 LMP
In the LM, this cover for the camera. Think about that for a while - I got it loaded, and I don't see any need to ever change it. If it works now - I guess if it quits before we actually went EVA, why there might be some reason to. 5.6 at 250th, huh?

03 10 20 01 LMP
Now, a few pictures of that and one of earthrise and - and then we'll stow it.



DAY 4 - Page 111

03 10 21 45 LMP
Well, I can't do anything until we transfer to LM power.

03 10 22 10 CDR
Do you know where the shaving cream is?

03 10 22 13 CMP
Shaving cream?

03 10 22 17 CDR
Yes.

03 10 22 18 CMP
Yes, I sure do; it's - -

03 10 22 19 LMP
In the penlight.

03 10 22 21 CMP
- - in the penlight compartment, huh?

03 10 22 53 LMP
How about this thing; you see any need to – to keep that in the LM?

03 10 23 07 LMP
Neil, what did you do with the - ... camera back sight?

03 10 23 12 CDR
I haven't had it.

03 10 23 13 LMP
Okay. What do you think about that?

03 10 23 16 CDR
I can't think of any reason why we might use it.

03 10 23 18 LMP
Well, there's a COAS - dust cover that I think fits in the same category, don't you? The thing that you got to move out to put the COAS in?

03 10 24 05 CMP
He's shaving.

03 10 24 36 CMP
I'm through with the flight plan, Neil, if you want it.

03 10 24 41 CDR
...

03 10 24 56 CDR
... razor?

03 10 24 58 CMP
The razor should be in there with the shaving cream, isn't it?

03 10 25 01 CDR
No - -

03 10 25 02 CMP
It wasn't?

03 10 25 03 CDR
- - ... shaving cream.



DAY 4 - Page 112

03 10 25 04 CMP
The razor wasn't in there?

03 10 25 06 CDR
The razor's in here, and I think the shaving cream was when I pulled it out, but - -

03 10 25 11 LMP
How much time to AOS, Mike?

03 10 25 15 CMP
82:30 - about 5 minutes.

03 10 28 42 LMP
Don't know what I'm doing with VHF B on.

03 10 28 52 LMP
Hey, Mike?

03 10 28 53 CMP
Yes.

03 10 28 57 LMP
You got VHF B available?

03 10 28 59 CMP
What? Say again?

03 10 29 05 LMP
I don't know. According to this lousy thing, I'm powering up VHF B - T/R.

03 10 29 11 CMP
Not right now, not for another half hour or so.

03 10 29 13 LMP
No, I know, but - Are you going to have your VHF on?

03 10 29 21 CMP
If I'm going to record your data, I am.

03 10 29 30 LMP
Well, it doesn't say doodly squat about recording data.

03 10 30 30 LMP
... coming up now.

03 10 31 54 CDR
Did you get them?

03 10 31 56 LMP
No, sure didn't.

03 10 32 05 CDR
Yes.

03 10 32 07 LMP
But I can't see ... - I see the earth, but it's a lousy picture.

03 10 32 27 CMP
Could you wait just 1? I'm right in the middle of the event-timer setting.

03 10 32 41 CMP
Okay, Houston. We'll be doing P22 in just a couple of minutes here.



DAY 4 - Page 113

03 10 32 46 LMP
You want to come in, Neil? Going in?

03 10 33 59 LMP
Want back up?

03 10 34 00 CDR
No.

03 10 34 01 LMP
Here's your shaving cream.

03 10 34 03 CMP
My only problem is I'm going to come over here and grab a switch and arm this hand controller.

03 10 34 07 CDR
Alright. I'll be out of your way.

03 10 34 08 CMP
Okeydoke. I'll tell you what you could do, if you're not doing anything else, is - supposed to take five marks 30 seconds apart. When I take the first one, you can take a hack and see - -

03 10 34 26 CDR
Okay.

03 10 34 27 CMP
- - whether I'm spaced properly or not, you know what I mean?

03 10 34 28 CDR
Yes.

03 10 34 29 CMP
Coach me along on when to take mark number 2, mark number 3, 4, 5.

03 10 34 51 CMP
And could you give me a hack on the MDC mission timer? It's going up to 35 minutes. Ready -

03 10 35 00 CMP
MARK it.

03 10 35 05 CDR
35 minutes.

03 10 35 06 CMP
Okay, that's good. That program alarm is normal; it will reach that when the trunnion gets down below 50 degrees.

03 10 35 21 CDR
Okay.

03 10 35 23 CMP
All I'm doing is waiting for - the time; everything else is done.

03 10 35 46 CDR
You holding inertial, Mike?

03 10 35 47 CMP
Yes.



DAY 4 - Page 114

03 10 35 50 LMP
No wonder the earth isn't moving.

03 10 36 06 CMP
Ho-hum, ho-hum. I only got set up for this thing about an hour early (laughter). Better late than never; better early than late.

03 10 37 04 CMP
... should be coming over the horizon here pretty soon.

03 10 37 08 LMP
What should be?

03 10 37 14 CMP
01d A-1. 0ld A-1.

03 10 37 20 CMP
Now, we'll see if you can find something that looks like A-1.

03 10 37 23 LMP
I got the earth down by the strut.

03 10 37 56 LMP
The problem with this window is, Neil, I think it's too cold in here.

03 10 37 59 CMP
Neil, I'm going to get up here and get pitch - MANUAL ATTITUDE PITCH to ACCEL COMMAND. Those hand controllers are armed, so beware.

03 10 38 02 CDR
Okay.

03 10 41 25 CMP
If I'd known you were going to be here, I'd of incorporated you into the procedures.

03 10 41 30 CDR
Keep looking through the periscope, then.

03 10 41 32 CMP
What I need is - 0.3 to 0.5 on this thing, closer to 3. I'd get it, but you - -

03 10 41 40 CDR
I'll watch.

03 10 41 41 CMP
- - just as a doublecheck - -

03 10 41 42 CDR
I'll watch.

03 10 42 11 CMP
The preflight - ...

03 10 42 55 CDR
That ... is working.

03 10 42 56 CMP
Okay, fine.

03 10 43 31 CMP
Okay, MARK it –



DAY 4 - Page 115

03 10 43 32 CMP
Number 1. They're 30-second marks.

Checklist says - You're going to go blind doing this - ... 06 71 - confirm 7000; 06 89 confirm ... 320 7000 ... -

03 10 46 08 CDR
Just leave it; keep pitching?

03 10 46 10 CMP
Yes. But I don't know why we're getting that thrust rate there, maybe the ... getting unhappy - -

03 10 46 16 CDR
... look at that roll and stuff ... that yaw ...

03 10 46 21 CMP
Yes. It's Just like the simulator, remember that?

03 10 46 24 CDR
Yes.

03 10 46 26 CMP
It's ...

03 10 46 27 CDR
We're yawing pretty good. 0.4, I'd say - -

03 10 46 31 CMP
We're going to have to check that out.

03 10 46 34 CDR
- - towards gimbal lock.

03 10 46 35 CMP
Toward gimbal lock?

03 10 46 37 CDR
It's only gone 10 degrees towards gimbal lock.

03 10 46 40 CMP
Well, that's a pretty good error. I don't know why in the hell it does that.

03 10 46 48 CMP
Would you like to control the ...? I'd say we're going to keep pitching for quite a while.

03 10 46 59 CMP
Houston, Apollo 11.

03 10 47 05 CMP
Roger. Are you copying NOUN 129 on your downlink? If you've had enough time, I'll proceed.

03 10 47 35 CMP
Look, what gimbal angle was that when - on the pitch - when that activity started, just out of curiosity?

03 10 47 40 CDR
Oh, must have been around - 210.



DAY 4 - Page 117

03 10 47 50 CMP
Just like the simulator.

03 10 48 00 CMP
Okay, now, the flight plan says where we want to stop ..., that says so right here - pitch 229 is where we want to stop.

03 10 48 07 CDR
Okay, we've gone by that, however, quite a ways.

03 10 48 10 CMP
I'm sorry, let's stop, then.

03 10 48 12 LMP
Is that local vertical?

03 10 48 14 CMP
No.

03 10 48 21 CDR
Okay. And after those pictures, ... lunar surface.

03 10 48 26 CMP
You want to go back to 229 or what?

03 10 48 29 CDR
Let me see the flight plan just a second. Yes.

03 10 48 41 CMP
Might as well just - just let it stop itself, Neil.

03 10 48 47 CDR
I've got to - look at the - -

03 10 51 35 CMP
There's Mount Marilyn.

03 10 51 36 CDR
Yes.

03 10 51 55 CMP
Okay, we didn't waste any gas by doing what we did, but what we wasted gas by was that goddamn DAP activity; I don't understand that. just like the simulator.

03 10 52 09 CDR
Sure enough.

03 10 52 13 CMP
You got a good view there, Neil?

03 10 52 15 CDR
Yes, I sure do.

03 10 52 18 CMP
Houston, Apollo 11.

03 10 52 25 CMP
All that procedure for P22 seemed to work very well. The only thing that was a little odd is that there was some DAP thruster activity. I had pitch in ACCEL COMMAND, and roll and yaw in RATE COMMAND, and somehow roll and yaw got excited, and DAP went into a flurry of thruster firing. We've noticed the same thing in the CMS and had just written it off as a CMS peculiarity.

03 10 53 02 CMP
Okay.

03 10 53 34 CMP
Well, one P22 out of the way. Ho, ho, ho!

03 10 53 40 CDR
What were the results?

03 10 53 42 CMP
Well - -

03 10 53 43 CDR
Or could you tell?

03 10 53 44 CMP
- - they're sort of inconclusive because I marked - see, they gave me -

03 10 53 52 CMP
That's in work, Houston. Hey, how about holding this for just a little bit?

03 10 53 55 CDR
Yes, let's hold this attitude a little bit; I want to look at the - -

We're coming over - we just passed Mount Marilyn. We're coming up on Maskelyne series here - straight out ahead, coming into the landing area.

03 10 54 21 CMP
Houston, we're holding inertial a little while to study the approach to the landing zone.

03 10 54 39 CDR
See the monocular -

03 10 54 41 CMP
I don't either, ...

03 10 54 44 CDR
Is there one?

03 10 54 50 LMP
Well, a crater - -

There go Sidewinder and Diamondback. God, if you ever saw checkpoints in your life, those are it.

But ... we don't get to see them.

No, we roll over right here at this little - well, you see Boot Hill coming up right here?

Yes, yes, yes.

And just beyond it that's - that crater right on track there, the big one?

That's Mount Marilyn? Past Boot Hill?

No, Duke Hill.

Can you see ..., Neil?

03 10 56 20 CDR
I'm not sure.

03 10 56 25 LMP
I think I can see it, for sure. Yes, I got it beautiful - I can - I got the whole landing site here.

That far?

03 10 56 40 LMP
The one that's shorter there?

Houston, this is Apollo LM in the Eagle - Apollo 11 in the Eagle, and I got a beautiful view of the whole landing area.

03 10 57 20 CMP

... enough of a shot down there, but you can't find a single spot on the surface that doesn't look ... 1-degree sun angle, that's - that's just a lousy sun angle.

Yes, sure does.

You got 83 hours right now, huh?

03 10 59 35 CMP
Yes, 83 hours, and we're on LM power.

03 11 00 26 LMP
Glycol pump.

03 11 00 28 CMP
Houston, Apollo 11. How do you read on high gain? Over.

03 11 00 37 CMP
Okay. You want wide beam, for some reason?

03 11 00 39 LMP
Will you cut my SUIT POWER and AUDIO, OFF, please?

03 11 00 43 CMP
Yes.

03 11 00 51 LMP
Okay, fine.

03 11 00 53 CDR
Okay, going OFF now.

03 11 00 54 CMP
We're starting our maneuver to sleep attitude; roll 82, pitch 229, yaw zero.



DAY 4 - Page 122

03 11 01 11 CMP
About ready to maneuver?

03 11 01 14 LMP
Go ahead.

03 11 01 16 CMP
Okay.

03 11 02 52 CDR
Yes?

03 11 03 08 CDR
You're past step 4?

03 11 03 41 CDR
Houston, 11.

03 11 03 45 CDR
What's the page?

03 11 03 48 CDR
Okay. We're on page - activation 12, 13, at step 4, verify descent talkbacks - gray, and they're barber pole.

03 11 04 20 CDR
Stand by. We've got it. We've just had – one circuit breaker out of position. We have them gray now.

03 11 05 18 CMP
Watch that.

03 11 05 20 CDR
Don't we want it dark?

03 11 05 24 CMP
I thought the lights were going out. Man, that voltage is really falling off.

03 11 05 43 LMP
Hey, Mike.

03 11 05 44 CMP
Yes.

03 11 05 45 LMP
... VHF ... circuit breaker ...

03 11 05 50 CMP
I can't hear you, Buzz.

03 11 05 52 CDR
He says, "Why don't you turn on VHF B, just for kicks."

03 11 05 55 CMP
Alright, I'll do it. You going to send me some data?

03 11 06 00 LMP
Yes, I'll get right to it.

03 11 06 02 CMP
Huh?



DAY 4 - Page 123

03 11 06 03 LMP
I'll get right to it.

03 11 06 04 CMP
Alright.

03 11 06 07 LMP
Soon as I get some COMM first.

03 11 06 09 CMP
Yes, because when I - because when I record your data, I'm on SIMPLEX A.

03 11 06 17 LMP
Yes, well, that's when you're talking at the same time.

03 11 06 20 CMP
Yes, okay. You want me just to turn up B now?

03 11 06 22 CDR
There's signal strength.

03 11 06 50 LMP
Hello, Houston, hello, Houston; this is Apollo 11, Eagle. Over.

03 11 07 22 CDR
A lot of static - on the command module S-band.

03 11 07 27 CMP
Well, we - we should still have him.

03 11 07 39 CDR
Houston, Apollo 11. Radio check on S-band.

03 11 08 04 CDR
I'm not getting them on -

03 11 08 08 CMP
Well, we're almost at sleep attitude; just stand by 1, and, as soon as we get there, I'll find out where they are. I'm going to dick with the DAP right now.

03 11 09 16 CDR
I've got nothing but static.

03 11 09 31 CMP
Houston, Apollo 11. Over.

03 11 09 52 LMP
Hey, Mike, you transmitting on B?

03 11 10 00 CDR
Mike, what are you transmitting on up there?

03 11 10 04 CMP
Say again.

03 11 10 06 CDR
What are you transmitting on up there?

03 11 10 08 CMP
I'm transmitting right now on OMNI A, but I'm about to get new high-gain angles; just 1 second. Okay, we're there.



DAY 4 - Page 124

03 11 10 16 CDR
How come I - he don't hear you on INTERCOM?

03 11 10 21 CMP
You should hear - -

03 11 10 22 LMP
Houston, Apollo 11; Apollo 11, Eagle. Over.

03 11 10 33 LMP
Roger. I read you about 4 by 4. Could you give me a short count, please?

03 11 10 37 CDR
Gees, I don't hear him.

03 11 10 43 CDR
We don't read them, Buzz.

03 11 10 46 CMP
He's - he's on LM S-band, Neil, apparently.

03 11 10 49 CDR
Oh.

03 11 10 50 CMP
Yes.

03 11 10 53 LMP
Roger. Are you copying my LOW BIT RATE? Over.

03 11 11 07 LMP
Roger. I'm all ready to switch to HIGH BIT RATE, if that's okay with you.

03 11 11 21 LMP
Standing by.

03 11 11 31 LMP
Houston, Eagle. Go ahead with the camera checkout. I'm still on low taps, and I assume there's no problem doing that. Over.

03 11 11 53 CMP
Houston, Columbia. How do you read on the high gain?

03 11 12 01 CMP
Blap.

03 11 12 07 CDR
Did you hear him answer?

03 11 12 09 CMP
No.

03 11 12 10 CDR
I didn't either. Buzz is reading him, though.

03 11 13 04 CMP
Houston, Columbia. How do you read on the high gain? Over.

03 11 13 18 CMP
Hey, how about asking them if they can hear me calling?



DAY 4 - Page 125

03 11 13 22 LMP
I don't believe they can hear you, Mike, ... sleep attitude.

03 11 13 26 CMP
Well, we're in sleep attitude, and I got the high-gain angles, and they should be good angles. And I'm locked on and I got about a half signal strength, and they can't hear me.

03 11 13 40 LMP
Houston, Eagle. ... high gain ...

03 11 14 11 CDR
No go.

03 11 14 12 CMP
What'd he say?

03 11 14 13 CDR
COMMAND RESET.

03 11 14 14 CMP
Okay.

03 11 14 36 LMP
... try him again.

03 11 14 39 CMP
Houston, Columbia. Reading you loud and clear.

03 11 43 24 CMP
Armstrong says it's the hatch and - if we leave the probe and drogue there, we'll save us some time tomorrow; I don't know if it's tolerable sleeping or not. I think what previous crews have been doing is reinstalling all that claptrap up in there.

03 11 43 40 CDR
Yes.

03 11 43 42 CMP
But -

03 11 43 47 LMP
...

03 11 43 50 CMP
What?

03 11 43 51 LMP
...

03 11 43 59 CMP
Yes, forward's okay.

03 11 44 15 CDR
I don't think that would be too horrible sleeping down there.

03 11 44 28 CDR
It's for sure it's not going anywhere; this one's bolted down two places - and this one is - -

03 11 44 35 CMP
You can try it. If we could find a place to put our legs back in there, it'll be alright.



DAY 4 - Page 126

03 11 45 13 CMP
See - it's going to be hard to get into that - sampler there.

03 11 45 19 CDR
No - no, that's alright. That's the place for it.

03 11 46 30 CDR
(Sneeze)

03 11 46 34 CMP
Okay, lights went out - except for all those radioactive ones in there.

03 11 47 12 LMP
Well, COMM's good. Son of a bitch might work.

03 11 47 21 CMP
Sure it'll work. Anything in a pretty cockpit like that is bound to work.

03 11 47 38 CMP
Well, I propose leaving the probe and drogue in here overnight. Save all - doing all that claptrap in the morning.

03 11 47 48 CDR
It's okay with me.

03 11 47 49 LMP
Fine.

03 11 47 50 CMP
You through in the LM?

03 11 47 54 LMP
How's that going to affect - -

03 11 47 57 CMP
Sleeping!

03 11 47 58 LMP
- - sleeping?

03 11 47 59 CMP
I'll be glad to sleep over there, alright? I don't think it'll affect that; I'd rather sleep, I'd rather sleep with the probe and drogue than have to dick with it in the morning.

03 11 48 06 LMP
Alright, that's fine; I can have it there. I don't know how I'd get out, but - (laughter).

03 11 48 13 CDR
...

03 11 48 15 CMP
That's ..., alright.

03 11 48 25 LMP
Hey, you don't want to bring this one back? You on a weight-saving kick for the command module?

03 11 48 35 CDR
You want it?



DAY 4 - Page 127

03 11 48 37 LMP
Sure, you - -

03 11 48 38 CDR
There's room for the Hasselblad.

03 11 48 39 LMP
- - you got stowage space?

03 11 48 42 CDR
You can have it if you want it.

03 11 48 45 LMP
You got a place to fix things that rattle around?

03 11 48 50 CMP
Sure. Like hatches? ... if you'll take time to get out of the hallway.

03 11 49 01 LMP
Let's get some music.

03 11 49 03 CMP
Get out of my damn hallway, Aldrin, so I can put my hatch in and then we can all - -

03 11 49 06 LMP
How about these tapes?

03 11 49 09 CMP
Okay.

03 11 49 37 LMP
Okay, 95:50 IVT to the LM. What time is it now?

03 11 49 44 CMP
83:53.

03 11 49 50 LMP
I figure that as being 12 hours. About time for a Lomotil, huh? Well, not quite.

03 11 50 37 LMP
How about the systems stuff - to put the machine to bed.

03 11 51 01 CMP
You go to REACQ and NARROW?

03 11 51 02 CDR
Yes.

03 11 51 05 CMP
So I guess the COMM's pretty well taken care of?

03 11 51 08 CDR
Yes.

03 11 51 09 CMP
Have you got the waste water dump?

03 11 51 10 CDR
No, I haven't done that, but I will.

03 11 51 12 CMP
Let's see, I imagine we want to go out of VOICE? Or not?

03 11 51 17 CDR
Very, very - -



DAY 4 - Page 128

03 11 51 18 LMP
The whole bit they said.

03 11 51 24 CMP
Okay.

03 11 51 57 CMP
Lunar orbit asleep; (cough) S-BAND SQUELCH, ENABLE?

03 11 51 58 LMP
I did it.

03 11 51 59 CMP
Got that, huh?

03 11 52 00 LMP
Yes.

03 11 52 01 CMP
HIGH GAIN, REACQ, NARROW; antenna pitch angle - -

03 11 52 06 LMP
Yes, I did that.

03 11 52 07 CMP
- - that's all it says.

03 11 52 08 LMP
Okay.

03 11 52 10 CMP
Plus the normal configuration.

03 11 52 13 LMP
Doesn't it say anything about DOWN VOICE BACKUP - or any of that stuff?

03 11 52 16 CMP
(Cough)

03 11 52 31 CMP
No.

03 11 52 33 LMP
Okay.

03 11 52 37 CDR
Waste water dump, we'll wait until 84 hours; they may have the vent modeled or some crazy thing like that, so I want to be at the right time.

03 11 52 45 LMP
Alright.

03 11 52 47 CMP
Well, let's see, normal lunar configuration. Well, it is DOWN VOICE BACKUP.

03 11 52 52 LMP
Yes.

03 11 52 54 CMP
Well, let's get going here. PRIMARY, PRIMARY, HIGH, VOICE, (cough) PCM, RANGE, DOWN VOICE BACKUP, AUX TAPE, OFF; TELEMETRY to DATA; and UP TIM COMMAND to NORMAL; VHF A and B, OFF; RECEIVE only, ...;



DAY 4 - Page 129

PCM/ANALOG, RECORD, FORWARD, NORMAL, NORMAL - that's okay, LOW - PRIMARY, REACQ, and NARROW. Well, COMM's set.

03 11 53 56 LMP
Good.

03 11 53 57 CDR
I got to vacuum up some water and dump the waste water tank, and we're about set.

03 11 54 05 CMP
Hey, I got a fuel cell - O2 - -

03 11 54 09 CDR
Hey, our water's about all gone.

03 11 54 10 CMP
Did they say anything about the O2 purge?

03 11 54 13 CDR
Must have gone into the LM.

03 11 54 14 CMP
Yes, I think it did; it went on the windows. They didn't say anything about it, huh?

03 11 54 17 LMP
No.

03 11 54 18 CMP
Well, I guess we'll do it then. Anybody get my - Well, heck, I guess we're really not through with them yet, are we?

03 11 54 36 CDR
I updated the LOS time in your -

03 11 54 39 CMP
Yes. I think I'll wait until we get them back again before doing the purge. Okay? Because, I don't know, maybe they want all that stuff done on the back side.

03 11 55 11 LMP
Well, I propose to give myself a little bit of a - a bath, but not to put that damn LCG on tonight. You never did ask them about the - about the ..., huh? I sure haven't found them.

03 11 55 40 CMP
I think we ought to do that.

03 11 56 00 CMP
Neil, you still got that tissue dispenser, the empty one?

03 11 56 06 CMP
Thank you.

03 11 56 27 LMP
What's baseline altitude? ... the altitude - descent altitude settings?



DAY 4 - Page 130

03 11 57 01 LMP
That's the - that's the last meal we eat before descent, huh?

03 11 57 12 LMP
Sure is.

03 11 57 26 CMP
Wowee!

03 11 57 27 LMP
95 - that's - 7 - got 10 hours. Whew!

03 11 57 44 LMP
Might whip out that piece of bread in there.

03 11 58 43 LMP
Through in the tunnel, Mike?

03 11 58 46 CMP
Through, yes.

03 11 58 47 LMP
Okay, I want to get the lights out then.

03 11 58 48 CMP
Okay, ...

03 11 59 29 LMP
What are your dosimeters reading?

03 11 59 38 CMP
... up a little bit.

03 11 59 41 CDR
Mine says - 11012.

03 11 59 50 CMP
I can't read this little fart. Says 10013.

03 12 00 03 LMP
I think they all started out at even thousands. They had them each different so they could tell which was which.

03 12 01 13 LMP
Well, I don't know about you, but I think I'll raid the pantry for some bite-size stuff.

03 12 01 24 LMP
I don't know when we'll get a chance to use it maybe some time - -

03 12 01 26 CMP
Monoculars?

03 12 01 30 LMP
- - during the maneuvers.

03 12 01 32 CMP
Found it, huh?

03 12 01 34 CDR
We're going to take that into the LM.

03 12 01 36 CMP
Yes. Sure can.

Amazing how quickly you adapt - Why, it doesn't seem weird at all to me to look out there and see the moon going by, you know?

03 12 02 25 SC
(Laughter)

03 12 02 27 LMP
Oh, that is weird - that crazy moon out there again, huh? Funny-looking thing.

03 12 03 12 CMP
Buzz, this crazy bracket goes right here. It's probably right the hell in your way, isn't it?

03 12 03 17 LMP
No, no.

03 12 03 18 CMP
Not in your way?

03 12 03 19 LMP
No, I can survive with that.

03 12 03 21 CMP
Alright, let me put it up there; it'll be one less thing to do in the morning. It's in backwards, but I don't think -

03 12 03 33 CMP
Well, if I don't need this thing anymore, I think It'll stow that one away. Systems are yours tomorrow?

03 12 03 44 CDR
Yes.

03 12 03 45 CMP
I don't know as we've got much to do; there's a purge.

03 12 03 50 CDR
Is it 84 hours yet? Yes, it is; I'm going to dump the waste water.

03 12 04 36 CMP
You dumping?

03 12 04 37 CDR
Yes.

03 12 04 42 LMP
(Cough) Boy, it's a dusty vehicle in here. Man! But that view approaching the landing site is just fantastic right out - right smack out the window, you know that?



DAY 4 – Page 132

03 12 04 52 CDR
Yes.

03 12 04 53 LMP
Except there's such a big shadow being cast by everything - -

03 12 05 01 CMP
1 or 2 degrees, Neil?

03 12 05 02 LMP
- - that I really couldn't - -

03 12 05 04 CDR
I think ... - -

03 12 05 05 LMP
- - I could identify the Cat's Paw and I could identify the pair of craters right at the end, but I couldn't really make out the backward V nor the three little curved ones on one side - -

03 12 05 17 CMP
I didn't see the backwards either.

03 12 05 18 LMP
- - but I could see the area where it all was, you know, and - -

03 12 05 19 CMP
Yes, yes.

03 12 05 21 LMP
- - it didn't go any farther back that this, and it didn't really go any farther forward than that - it really didn't. You know, it was rougher than a cob (laughter).

03 12 05 27 CMP
Rougher than a cob, but I didn't see ...

03 12 05 31 LMP
Well, when you compare it with the surrounding areas, why it's - it's pretty reasonable.

03 12 07 21 CDR
You want this somewhere?

03 12 07 23 CMP
...

03 12 07 42 CDR
If you don't mind, I'll put it on this big piece of Velcro over here by the fuel cell.

03 12 07 52 CMP
Yes, that's a good place for it.

03 12 09 46 LMP
Anybody for a barf bag?

03 12 11 08 LMP
Can you think of any use for a slide rule in the LM, Neil?



DAY 4 - Page 133

03 12 11 19 LMP
Huh?

03 12 11 27 CDR
I can't think of any use for two of them.

03 12 11 31 LMP
Okay.

03 12 15 24 LMP
That COMM was so good I don't think I'd need those damn things ...

03 12 16 29 CMP
Anybody say anything about terminating battery current?

03 12 16 33 LMP
No.

03 12 16 45 CMP
You remember anything about that, Neil?

03 12 16 48 CDR
No.

03 12 18 12 CMP
Somebody's blue towels? Did I dislodge those by mistake or did you have those?

03 12 18 18 CDR
No, don't believe I had them.

03 12 18 20 LMP
I had them out, kind of floating around back here.

03 12 18 38 LMP
Everything I think you could dislodge, they forgot to put Velcro on the damn thing.

03 12 19 31 CMP
Could you - maybe reach back and - hand me that wrench right quick?

03 12 19 40 CDR
Yes, I sure could. Sure could ...

03 12 19 54 CMP
You want me to swap one?

03 12 20 00 CDR
No, I think I'll keep one for tonight.

03 12 20 03 CMP
Okay.

03 12 20 26 CDR
Thank you.

03 12 22 34 CMP
Well, I just want to make sure I'm through with the roll; I think I am.

03 12 22 42 CDR
Can't figure out how you tell when one's gone. I think that was it.

03 12 22 50 CMP
Oh, it stopped!

03 12 23 49 LMP
It's a bear to get in and out of here.

It may be raunchy later.

03 13 39 56 LMP
It may be? There's no doubt about it!

Oh, I'll take a couple small ones.

No. Gosh, you remember when they told us about - about putting buttons on the seat of these pants?

03 13 44 27 CDR
No, I don't remember.

03 13 44 33 LMP
Yes, they were working out - this elaborate scheme.

03 13 44 38 CMP
Yes, ... had a choice between ... and Velcro.

03 13 44 52 CDR
What's its use? I mean, don't keep me hanging in suspense.

03 13 44 55 CMP
Well, whatever I tell them, they didn't give me.

03 13 44 57 CDR
Shouldn't have anything.

03 13 44 59 LMP
Nothing in it.

03 13 45 01 CDR
Good grief, man!

03 13 45 02 CMP
They tell me you got to use Velcro on there. Maybe on the other side.

03 13 45 08 CDR
Use -

How'd you sleep last night, Buzz, up on top?

03 13 51 59 LMP
You open up the outer one, and you put the inner one in there and squeeze it and it breaks, then you got to take the ... and insert it and mush it all up - to get that stuff evenly distributed through it.

03 13 52 25 LMP
Why don't you guys sleep underneath tonight? I'll sleep top deck.

03 13 52 34 CDR
Oh, you're going to sleep downstairs tonight, aren't you?

03 13 52 36 LMP
Yes, that's right; I remember ...

03 13 52 40 CMP
Unless you'd rather sleep up top, Buzz; I like - you guys ought to get a good night's sleep, going in that damn LM - How about - which would you prefer? Is that probe and drogue going to be in your way over there?

03 13 52 51 LMP
No, I don't think so.

03 13 52 54 CMP
Well, take your druthers, whichever you prefer.

03 13 55 57 LMP

03 14 02 08 CMP
Well, I thought today went pretty well. If tomorrow and the next day are like today, we'll be safe.

03 14 08 12 CDR
You got a crater coming up, Buzz? Right through here. I don't know if you can see it or not. If not, let me get a picture of it because it's really - got big ... on the bottom of it. It don't look good.

03 14 08 29 CMP
It's out this way.

03 14 08 30 CDR
Go ahead, go ahead, go ahead, go ahead.

03 14 08 31 LMP
Shoot ... here.

03 14 08 32 CMP
I'm not sure we should be shooting this – what we're shooting at or 1 point set; I guess you're alright - in this light stuff, I guess you're alright.

03 14 08 46 CDR
Okay, thank you.

03 14 08 49 LMP
Oops! ...

What time is it, Neil, 88 hours, something like that?

03 14 13 42 CDR
86:13.

03 14 15 54 CDR
Doesn't it look like some of these crater walls had scallops inside like a design in a fan – like feathers.

03 14 16 05 LMP
Seashells.

03 14 16 06 CDR
Yes.

03 14 16 07 LMP
Like seashells - very pretty, very symmetrical.

03 14 17 37 CDR
Take along one of those craters.

03 14 17 57 CDR
I took overlapping pictures of all that ...

Up there? We should be getting earthshine – earthrise features - should be coming up pretty soon.

03 14 25 10 CMP
Black and white.

Good deal. Keep working, you got a lot of film.

It's good ...

Yes, I guess so. Nothing like filming your ...

... this field of view, it's mostly just blues - I keep getting mostly black and blue.

03 14 30 36 CMP
Houston, Apollo 11. Over.

03 14 30 43 CMP
Okay. We just appeared to get a solid lock for the last - oh, about a minute, the TUNE FOR MAX needles have been wandering up and down and the pitch and yaw needles have been wandering around, but it appears to have reacquired by itself solidly now. We're just filling - finishing up our fuel cell purge. Hydrogen on number 3 is the last to go off, and it'll be coming off in just a second.

03 14 31 15 LMP
Huh? Is that right? Really should have looked.

03 14 31 51 CDR

I'll need to holler across to you to get the mission timers on. Do we want to check and get our two mission timers SYNC'd? What's this one read now? 82:50?

03 23 32 51 CDR
51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56 - -

03 23 32 56 LMP
Okay, this one is 1 second slow down in the LEB.

03 23 33 43 LMP
Well, we don't want them.

03 23 33 50 CMP

03 23 34 01 CDR
Anyway, it compares.

03 23 34 04 CMP
...

03 23 34 13 LMP
Well, we couldn't do that without switching - well, you can have them in here all the time.

03 23 34 18 CMP
... there's no way for me ... probe and drogue ... docking ...

03 23 34 32 CDR
No, I can't think that that'd be of significance between them - because why would you ever care to whether you'd hook them up again, if you came back and docked?

03 23 35 29 LMP
Here's this LCG check. "Verify ... stick visible in red or green band."

03 23 35 40 CDR
Yes. Not ... as it should be.

03 23 35 47 LMP
The red one comes out this far, and the green one's out further than that. The whole thing is only about that long. It's got to be in one or the other or you can't see it.

03 23 36 24 CDR
Having any luck there, Michael?

I've got ...

... pad; I'm going to have to take a leak here.

03 23 38 50 LMP
Yes, I guess I'd better take that pocket – and the purse. Tell you what - How about putting those tissues in that box that's got that spare camera in it?

03 23 39 16 CDR
Okay.

03 23 39 17 LMP
It'll be right handy on your side over there. Now where did the tissue box go?

03 23 39 39 CDR
You want to see if the computer agrees with that mission timer?

03 23 39 42 LMP
I did already.

03 23 39 44 CDR
Okay.

03 23 41 20 LMP
Can you hand me that purse and the - that bag of mine - and the checklist?

How come you don't ... LM power?

Okay. Stand by. You're on LM power. What?

Oh, what time is it? It's 95:54.

Now, switch from RATE, HIGH, to RATE, LOW. But that might make it better and maybe a little bit worse.

03 23 55 21 LMP

I guess that's right then, Neil; it rattles across the deadband at a fairly high rate.

Neil, do you recall the highest rate you saw during this recent thruster activity? Did you say 0.4 or thereabouts?

04 01 51 42 CDR
Looks good.

How you doing, Mike?

Buzz, are you on the forward OMNI?

Houston, Columbia. Eagle is on the forward OMNI.

04 02 22 39 LMP
Columbia, go ahead.

04 02 23 13 LMP
Houston, Eagle. Go ahead.

04 02 23 19 LMP

Houston, Columbia in DOWN VOICE BACKUP. Do you read?

Affirmative. Columbia in DOWN VOICE BACKUP. How do you read me?

Roger. Eagle's in VOICE mode. How do you read? Over.

04 02 26 34 CMP
Houston, Columbia's in OMNI C, Charlie, DOWN VOICE BACKUP and, when you get a chance, could you look up the coordinates of 130 for me, please? I have conflicting information between my cue card and my flight plan. I'd like to know which coordinates you want me to use.

04 02 27 04 LMP
Houston, Eagle. Completed gear extension okay.

04 02 27 54 CMP
Thank you, Houston.

04 02 29 14 CMP
Yes, I had the coordinates loaded off the cue card which is - for crater 130.

04 02 31 29 CMP
Roger. Thank you.

04 02 33 11 LMP
Roger. We're just sitting around waiting for something to do. We need a state vector, a REFSMMAT before we can proceed on with the AGS,



DAY 5 - Page 152

and we need you to watch our DAP data load, gimbal drive check, and throttle test. Over.

04 02 33 54 LMP
Roger. We'll go ahead with the DAP and the throttle check since we don't have a gimbal drive test, okay?

04 02 35 31 CMP
Houston, Columbia. Those T1 and T2 times are still good, aren't they?

04 02 35 40 CMP
I say, the T1 and T2 times remain unchanged, affirmative?

04 02 35 53 CMP
Thank you.

04 02 37 56 LMP
Houston, Eagle.

04 02 38 03 LMP
Roger. In accordance with the - page 47, step 1, we had the guidance control in PGNS and MODE CONTROL, PGNS, AUTO; and, of course, the circuit breakers are not in on the thrusters yet, so when we started through the DAP and proceeded on NOUN 46 - and we're looking at NOUN 47 now - why, we got an RCS TCA light, and we've got four out of the eight other bright-colored red flags. I think that this is explained by the fact that we are in - PGNS and AUTO and just unable to fire the thrusters. Over.

04 02 39 21 LMP
Roger.

Houston, Eagle. Are you going to need the high gain before you can look at our GDA position indicators?

I can go to a high ...

04 02 40 41 LMP
I can give you HIGH BIT RATE on the OMNI's if that will help you any.

That's affirmative; the landing gear is out and gray.

Houston, Columbia. I've completed my marks. I've gone ACCEL COMMAND in all three axes to prevent that thruster firing that last time.

04 02 46 47 CMP
Houston, Columbia. As soon as you have the necessary data on the downlink, let me know and I'll proceed.

Roger. Columbia, Eagle. Have you about maneuvered there, yet?

04 02 49 52 CMP
Negative.

We have about another 120 degrees to go, Buzz.

All Columbia systems looking good.

It's nice and quiet over here, isn't it?

04 03 31 56 CMP
Eagle, you read Columbia?

04 03 31 58 LMP
Roger. Loud and clear.

04 03 32 03 CMP
Okay, everything's going well. Everything's quiet over on this side.

04 03 32 07 LMP
You bet.

04 03 32 09 CMP
Okay. I'm standing by to record your data anytime it's convenient for you; angles coming up in another 2 minutes.

...

04 03 34 48 LMP
Mike, are you in AGS CAL attitude now?

04 03 34 54 CMP
That's affirm. I'm holding you there with the DAP, getting the deadband. When you get ready to do the AGS CAL, I will sort of quiet down the thruster firing and then hope to stop it altogether, but I don't even think that'll get it.

04 03 35 09 LMP
Okay. Well, I'm just about ready to do that. Whenever you're ready to let it go free, why just tell me.



DAY 5 - Page 155

04 03 35 40 CMP
Okay, it looks real quiet now; I'm ready to go right now.

04 03 36 00 CMP
Buzz, you copy?

Buzz, you copy?

04 03 36 13 LMP
Okay, Mike. Thanks.

Now, ... might check me on this, I - it's - I'm ready to go anytime you're ready.

04 03 36 24 LMP
Roger. We'll be ready to go in just a minute.

04 03 37 46 LMP
Okay, I'm starting my 5-minute rate - right now.

04 03 40 00 CMP
As a matter of interest, I appear to be drifting in my roll; I'm holding my pitch and yaw pretty constant, and I'm staying a good 15 degrees late in the program.

04 03 40 15 LMP
Roger.

04 03 40 17 CMP
Looks like a ...

04 03 40 31 CMP
Halfway through it, it looks like I have ... degrees in roll is about all.

04 03 40 39 LMP
Yes, those look like good ones right now.

04 03 41 22 LMP
Mike, what's your SEP time?

04 03 41 26 CMP
A few minutes.

04 03 41 49 CMP
GET of the separation burn is 100:39:50 even.

04 03 42 01 CMP
I haven't gotten the updates for undocking time; I'm still carrying 100 hours 15 minutes, I guess, ...

04 03 42 23 CMP
I'm surprised they didn't update it by 3 or 4 minutes to, you know, make that DELTA-V be in the same position that they wanted.

04 03 42 33 LMP
Yes, I agree.



DAY 5 - Page 156

04 03 42 38 CMP
So we're about 3 minutes ahead of the printed flight plan; it might be wise to try to SEP about 3 minutes early, and we can give them a GET of SEP that's precise whenever they want it.

04 03 43 06 CMP
I have 5 minutes and 15 seconds since we started. Attitude is holding very well.

04 03 43 21 LMP
Roger, Mike. Just hold it a little bit longer.

04 03 43 25 CMP
No sweat, I can hold it all day. Take your sweet time. How's the Czar over there? He's so quiet.

04 03 43 45 CDR
Just hanging on - and punching.

04 03 43 49 CMP
I didn't know ... radio. ... I've ever seen a radio. All I can say is, "Beware the revolution."

04 03 46 21 CMP
You cats take it easy on the lunar surface; if I hear you huffing and puffing, I'm going to start bitching at you.

04 03 46 28 LMP
Okay, Mike.

04 03 46 37 CDR
I just pressurized the DPS. ... looks okay, Mike.

04 03 46 40 CMP
Roger that.

04 03 49 19 LMP
Hey, Mike, can you see where our radar's pointing now?

04 03 49 29 CMP
Well, it looks like it's pointed right at my head; that's hard south; so's your radio beacon.

04 03 49 34 LMP
Okay. It should really - it should be pointing from the - you know, our forward axis? It should be pointing up at 40 degrees and, you know -

04 03 49 48 CMP
Okay. We've wandered back over the bellyband now - let me assure that AGS CAL.

04 03 49 54 LMP
...

04 03 50 19 CMP
How'd the AGS CAL work out?

04 03 50 23 LMP
Oh, it danced around a little bit, but seemed to go right back to the original numbers.



DAY 5 - Page 157

04 03 50 33 CMP
Okay. I'm going to start a maneuver now to our undocking attitude.

04 03 51 21 CMP
Now the undock attitude and the SEP attitude ought to be the same, so I'm going to go to what they gave me for the updated separation-burn attitude. That's just about 7 degrees off, but it's in your flight plan for the undock attitude.

04 03 51 38 LMP
Okay.

04 03 53 12 CMP
When your rendezvous radar self-test is complete, let me know and I'll check out my transponder.

04 03 53 30 LMP
Excuse me, Mike, what did you say?

04 03 53 33 CMP
I say, when your rendezvous radar self-test is complete, let me know and I'll check out my transponder.

04 03 53 38 LMP
Yes, we're through with that now.

04 03 53 41 CMP
Thank you. I'm maneuvering the ...

04 03 58 44 CMP
That transponder checked out. I hope they've got a nice, big, strong ... for you.

04 03 58 49 LMP
Very good.

04 03 59 56 LMP
Hey, Mike, what would you recommend as a good setting on the 16 millimeter?

04 04 00 02 CMP
Well, what they recommend for you is f:8 at 1/250th and put it not on infinity, but on 7 feet, which covers all the way from infinity down to a very short distance to keep it in focus, and 6 frames per second, I guess.

04 04 00 25 LMP
Yes, what you say, f:8 at 1/250th?

04 04 00 28 CMP
Yes, f:8 at 1/250th. And after you get it all set up, check that f-stop again because it slides and slips off with very little twist.

04 04 03 53 CMP
How about using, as an undocking time, 100 hours and 12 minutes? That suit your fancy?



DAY 5 - Page 158

04 04 03 59 CDR
That'll be fine.

04 04 04 05 CMP
Okay.

04 04 04 11 CDR
What have you got for AOS, Mike?

04 04 04 14 CMP
I have 100 hours and 16 minutes.

04 04 04 20 CDR
Okay.

04 04 10 44 CMP
We got just about a minute to go; you guys all set?

04 04 10 48 CDR
Yes, I think we're about ready.

We're all set when you are, Mike.

04 04 12 03 CMP
Okay, there you go. Beautiful!

04 04 12 06 CDR

04 04 12 10 LMP
Looks like a good SEP.

04 04 12 19 CMP
Looks good to me.

04 04 12 59 CDR
Okay. I've killed my rate, Mike, so you drift out to the distance you like and then stop your rate.

04 04 13 13 CDR
Starting my yaw.

04 04 13 30 CDR
There's sure a better visual in the simulator.

04 04 13 38 CMP
Okay. I picked up a little roll; I'm going to get rid of it.

04 04 14 22 CDR
Okay with you if I start my pitch, or you think you're not far enough away yet, Mike?

04 04 14 31 CMP
I'd prefer you stand by just a couple of seconds, Neil.

04 04 14 34 CDR
Okay. I'll wait for when you're ready – when you think you've got your rates killed perfectly.

04 04 14 39 CMP
Okay. I'm still holding ...

04 04 14 41 CDR
...

04 04 15 26 CMP
Okay, looks pretty good to me now.

04 04 15 30 CDR
Okay.

04 04 16 34 CMP
Just like in the simulator, you're drifting off to one side and down below a little bit.

04 04 16 39 CDR
Yes.

04 04 17 06 CMP
The gear are looking good; I've seen three of them.

04 04 17 11 CDR
The MESA is not down, right?

04 04 17 14 CMP
Say again.

04 04 17 15 CDR
The MESA's still up?

04 04 17 19 CMP
Yes,

04 04 17 20 CDR
Good.

04 04 17 49 CMP
Now, you're looking good.

04 04 17 59 LMP
Roger. Eagle's undocked. The Eagle has wings. Looking good.

04 04 18 18 CMP
Okay. You've got it, P00 and DATA.

04 04 18 39 CDR
You check our tracking light, Mike?

04 04 18 44 CMP
It came on.

Camera's working beautifully.

Track off?

I'm ready to start my yaw maneuver if it suits you, Mike.



DAY 5 - Page 160

04 04 20 04 CDR
Does it look like you're going to be able to do this without firing any thrusters, Mike?

04 04 20 11 CMP
I'd have to fire laterally once or twice.

04 04 20 22 CMP
Very small.

04 04 20 26 LMP
Go ahead, Houston. Eagle is ready to copy.

04 04 21 49 LMP

Roger. I see.

04 04 29 08 LMP
Houston, Eagle. Are you copying the fairly large numbers for range and range rate in - VERB 83? And did you - you just give us a state vector that changed one of the two vehicles? Over.

04 04 29 38 LMP
Okay. That explains the difference.

04 04 31 03 CDR
You want him to go to HIGH GAIN, YAW, zero or - say again the numbers.

04 04 31 17 CDR
Okay. YAW, zero; PITCH, minus 20, on the HIGH GAIN. Columbia.

Contingency sample.

Rock?

How about the data bag?

How are you doing?

05 09 21 16 LMP
It's filthy.

05 11 00 52 LMP
Hey - what do you do with it?

05 11 00 54 CMP
Just turn it down to off.

05 11 00 56 LMP

Huh?

Oh, no.

05 11 04 25 CMP
Well, you know, - well, just looking at that one sample, it was - I'm surprised you didn't have a lot more dust. Now you saw dust during descent, I think, around 40 feet, something like that, 30 feet maybe.

Yes it was - -

05 11 04 43 CMP
But it's pattern is such that it sprays out horizontally, and it doesn't really come up and engulf you, huh?

05 11 04 48 LMP
All the stuff looks like very light tan and gray, you know, that's - that's the color of it. When you get right up there to it, when you see it, why that isn't the color at all.

05 11 05 01 CMP
Dark - battleship gray, isn't it?

No, that side. Yes, it was down to 3. He called 30 seconds at one time.

05 11 39 32 LMP
Yes, ...

05 11 39 38 CMP
Yes, he called 60 seconds; then I heard him call 30 seconds.

05 11 40 15 CMP
Yes.

05 11 40 16 LMP

05 11 42 05 CMP
Yes, here it is.

05 11 42 06 CDR
Let me put it down here. Bring it on down. Over here. Put them all in one place.

You didn't maintain that 3-1/2 feet per second down there.

05 11 45 56 LMP
Well, I hope - I hope they have the data that shows just what we did have at contact when they can get photographs ... all the film we got.

Yes.

Well, I really couldn't put the ... no place, not that I'm sure of it, but my light came on, why, ... hit.

05 11 47 18 CDR
Yes, that's sure - the way that thing was working - the way that thing was working and stayed locked on all the way down - Gees, it was a beautiful thing.

05 11 47 44 CDR
You mean you didn't ...?

Getting all the damn alarms.

05 12 59 10 CMP
Will that one do? ...

05 12 59 48 LMP
Are you staying in this inertial attitude? Let's just leave it in REACQ then; it works just like a charm.

05 12 59 55 CMP
Yes, that's right.

05 13 00 09 CDR
How about that?

This is not dumping.

05 13 03 19 CMP
I figured that.

05 13 03 25 CDR
Did you try the other line?

05 13 03 26 CMP
Well - no, I haven't tried a whole number of alternatives. In fact, number 1 is not dumping. My guess would be that it's something to do with this connection in the UCD or something like that. When you try to dump your ... regular urine bag, ... It's so goddam smelly, I hate to grab it and dick around with it, but I guess I got to.

05 13 03 47 CDR
Not entirely. I think I'd rather stick around ...

Who took the roll of tape?

05 13 13 08 CDR
Isn't it in its place? Closet?

05 13 13 10 CMP
No, no, it's not in there. It doesn't have that closet anymore. The last I saw it, it was up on the MDC. I gave it - I handed it to one of you guys to -

05 13 13 17 LMP
Yes, I stuck it someplace.

05 13 13 25 CMP
Let's invent a new home for it because that old home is full of that smelly old urine bag.

05 13 13 34 CDR
The floodlight isn't - hasn't even made the bottom of the package warm yet, fellows.

05 13 13 39 LMP
Well, when it goes up there, we'll have to put it up here.

05 13 17 10 CMP
I got the tape - right underneath your couch. Okay?

05 13 17 19 LMP
Alright.

05 13 17 25 CMP
Okay, we need a new home for the tape. Anybody got any good suggestions?

05 13 17 36 CMP
Okay?

Alright.

All that probe and drogue and claptrap works; all that EVA transfer, you can forget about that and all those crazy procedures for taking that probe apart.

2 minutes prior, 100-degree line,

05 15 00 18 CDR
You got double lines?

05 15 00 19 CMP
Yes, I got double line on the 30, so I can use that as a head position ... look down between them.

05 15 00 25 CDR
They're not - they're not parallel? Can you see in the one-eye position?



DAY 6 - Page 228

05 15 00 30 CMP
What I'm saying is, on the 30 degree, I have both panes of glass - -

05 15 00 34 LMP
Yes.

Be happy to zip on around.

05 15 02 16 CMP
This thing is taking forever to get around here; we've got 20 minutes to TIG. I think I'll speed it up a bit, if you don't mind.

05 15 02 24 CDR
Hey, you got - 1, 0.1, point 1 you mean?

05 15 02 29 CMP
Yes.

05 15 02 44 CMP
You know, if you hit this hand controller like you do in the simulator, MINIMUM IMPULSE, just bang it, it'll bang over and bang back, and it'll fire two opposing pulses, and you get nothing. You know that?

Oh, shit. ... yaw out 14 degrees. Why in the hell didn't I do that? Read that number wrong.

05 15 05 29 CDR
Yes, it should have been 1.4 degrees yaw.

05 15 05 37 LMP
That "1" gets moved over so far.

05 15 05 40 CMP
Yes, the goddam "1" in this computer, you know - trunnion angle, it's there; DELTA-V, it's there; angles, it's there. It's probably over here for something although I can't think for what, but there, there, there, and there, of course – there is four places.

05 15 05 55 LMP
Okay, we're there, Neil; by the time you can get down there and get your eyeball out the window - -

05 15 05 59 CDR
Hey, what did you do with those numbers again?

05 15 06 01 CMP
Oh, we'll crank them in the computer.

357 and 1511. There's supposed to be a star there.

05 15 07 26 CDR
That's right, if you put them in - in the right order. That 151.1 is shaft.

Okay. I was just wondering if they were on – not questioning your checklist, just out of curiosity.

05 15 12 29 LMP
You going to pitch up after the burn?

05 15 12 33 CMP
Sounds like a good idea; let's look at the moon after the burn. That'll give us high gain, right?

05 15 12 41 LMP

Okay, 10 minutes until TIG.

Those temperatures are deceptive. I don't know where they measure it, but the cold point is -

05 15 13 36 CDR
Okay. Sunrise, now 10 minutes prior to TIG; I should have the horizon on the 10-degree line, huh?

05 15 13 43 CMP
No, 10 degrees - 2 minutes.

It is most important that we be going forward (laughter).

05 15 14 40 CMP
There's only one really bad mistake you can make there.

05 15 14 50 LMP
Shades of Gemini retrofire, are you sure we're - (laughter) - No, let 's see - the motors point this way and the gases escape that way, therefore imparting a thrust that-a-way.

05 15 15 03 CDR
Yes, horizon looks good.

05 15 15 06 LMP
Okay, we got 8-1/2 to TIG.

05 15 15 28 CMP
Somewhere along the line, I think I'll trim this maneuver just for the hell of it. Would this be a good time to do it, Buzz, at 8 minutes prior? You don't care when I do it, do you?

05 15 15 35 LMP
No, it probably would be after we - when the gimbals are out.

05 15 15 38 CMP
Oh, yes, alright. Okay.

Beautiful looking horizon, it's hard to describe.
