is in the spacecraft . He's hooked up his communications. His first 
communication was to Skip Shovin , the test conductor, hack at the Manned 
Spacecraft Operations building and he said to Ski's "Looks like it's a 
good day to fly". Skip agreed with that and they continued on with 
their work inside the spacecraft. They've connected the oxygen and 
they'll renove the portable oxygen ventilator which Stafford* has been 
using to breath until he got hooked up to the spacecraft oxygen. At 
this tine, Vance Brand's standing outside the hatch and is about to go 
in, or Deke Slay-ton rather is standing 0: '.side the hatch about to go 
inside. They ha%'e sorce protective boot covers over their shoes. They 
removed those, once they get inside, they also -erove a protective 
coverJnp '.hat's over their helnet . This is a plastic type of. covering 
that'rs ronoved and then brought outside the spacecraft. The countdown 
continuing to go well . The crew now standing by back at the . 320 -foot

kn<.v.s what the flow rate should be?

planned for the oultl -purpose furnace tomorrow - the first time the 
furnace will be used for this mission - is called MAO-lfc surface tension 
induced convection. It's a rather intereating experiment in that, up 
to this point, nsst cf the investigators that haw been proposing the 
use of furnaces in zero gravity conditions have tilked a great deal about 
the advances of having no gravity. Well, the scientific investigator 
tor this experiment, Dr. Rlchari Hoed, who works for the OnX RMm 
National Ube in Tenr.eeoee, is suggesting that, once you eliminate 
gravity as a problen, you then vill have surface tension problems. 
And so this e>periir.ent is designed to dttect what kind of surface tension 
operates, in zero gravity and if, indeed, surface tension rlJl turn out 
to be *a much of a probleo a* gravity appears to be for certain experi- 
ments Earth. Our ntxt status report is scheduled for ground 
elapsed time. At that tine the cr« will be about 50 ninuteS away froR 
wfcXeup. At 22: «5, this is Apollo Control.

PA0 23 houia, 1*0 minute* ground olapaed ticue, This 

is Apollo Control, goyui spacecraft presently on their orbit revolution 
number 17 and ovar vettern USSR right nov. Apollo, on orbit revolution 
nuaber 11, presently right over Central Africa, like to clariiy ft 
ratsunderbtar.ding which may have risen fro* an earlier announcement that 
ve had concerning the resolution of the probe problem. We had usentioned 
earlier thf.t night Director Puddy, considered the problen to be 
of such a nature that it was entirely likely that the crev had gore 
ahead and reaoved the probe during the night and had not notified 
Houston became of the simplicity of *he fix. Nov this ia not, in 
fact. Kr.ovn, it'B Just conjecture from the flight Director, fhe problem 
itself would involved about 20 minutes worth of work - to rerwve 
a „'over pUte on the central piston of the probe assembly and then to 
realign one of the pyro electrical connectors which apoeara to be- 
block! rg the acceas for the tool , which is nomally used to unlatch 
tne cloture latches. A very simple fix. That procedure vi 11 be givpn 
to the crew in Just about 50 minutes crew vake-up over Vanguard. 
Breakfast for the crev today consists of scrambled e^9 and hacon 
wafers and strawberries for Tor Stafford. And soaethir.? called Natural 
creau with strawberries, grapefruit crystal*, for Vance Brand, and 
scransblcd eggs, sausage patties, and strawberries for I«ke Slayton. 
The Soviets are presently avake . In about *» minutes before scheduled 
Apcllo crew oeaber vake up Mae, the Soyuz opacecraft will undergo 
a circularization naneuver which vill bring their spacecraft to an 
orbital altitude of 235 miles apogee by 225, excuse me, kiloneters 
apogee by 225 kilometers perigee. Apollo is scheduled for phase 
maneuver later on today. Sometiae around 3 o'clock this afternoon at 
ground elapsed tlnse of 32:21. We're expect! n* vake-up music over 
♦ anguiird. Although it Bay not be neceasary, crev i 9 scheduled for 
,?ust about 30 Binutea worth of post sleep activity before their vake-up 
cfcil at Vanguard, so the vake-up ausic probably won't wake then up. 
We'll be back up Just before crev vake-up tiae, about h$ minutes from 
nov. At GET 23:!* 3 this is Apollo Control.

I thi::k vhat's happened here is that there's some extra i-ems on some 
of these meals that are stoved separately and those are the ones ve 
haven't locate'' properly. > 

CC-H Okay, ve - ve'll check into it and see if ve can't 

give you a little bit of help there eo you won't be missing so many of 
those items. Or. that, rehydration problem you had or. the macaroni, was 
it Just that you couldn't get the vater inserted or vhat? 

DMP.: Oh, ve could get the vater in all right, but it was 

pretty dead stuff and there's no way in zero G to get it to mix - - 

CC-H To get it mixed up good? Okay, understand the problem. 

DM? Yea. Flight. And v' ve started to do this morning 

ve pulled out the menu and looked at it because ve veren't doing that be- 
fore, you know ve veren't sure ve missed something and all until ve vent 
to log it and discovered, hey! I was supposed to have that and ve didn't 
ha\e it. So ve'il try to look at the menu here if ve get a chance. 

CC-H Okay. I'm vith you. ; One other item I guess I'il 

mention here and iet you do vith it as you see time for this morning. 
Of course, vhen ve scrubbed out that height measurement DTO that vas 
scheduled yesterday because ve got so far behind. If ycu gents feel 
like you've got tiiae enough to-to get it in sometia". this morning that 
-.ill be fine and if you don't, veil use your ovn discretion. If time is 
shcrt. our priority vould be to get Vance since ve've already got a 
preliminary reading on him and our intent is to get a curve of hov the 
change occurr3 so is you could only get one, he vould be the prime man 
ve'd be after. 

E'KP Okay, (garble) time and do the best ve can vith it. 

■ CC-H Okay and ve do not need a vaste vater dump as scheduled 

this ; ve do net vant to d^ap it. 

DM? Roger. Understand and vhen ve chlorinated last 

night, ve again opened the potable and tjO perform the chlorination and 
ve didn't close it, I presume you don't mind if ve leave it open nov or 
vould you prefer to have it closed? 

CC-H Ve vould like to go ahead and close it if ve could. 

EMP Okay. Are ve cor-in., up on Africa, here? 

CC-H Tnat's affiraative. 

DM? And ve're looking at some fantast ic scenery here; 

ve veren't sure vhere ve vere.

burning down here Just like you can from Uo thousand feet up. 
■ ■■■ ■ CC-H . Rcger. 

DMP They're ail over the place. 

CC-H Deke, one item I mentioned, might mention to you on 

that air injection you did, I guess ve vant you to understand that pro- 
cedure because ve're probably going to be asking you to use it several 
tines so it m^ght be vorth making & note on your docking module checklist 
someplace, vith vhat you do vhen, vhe/. you inject air; but basically

Okay. Let cie Just s\y a couple -oris about the rendezvous. After doing 
the little out of plane correcti.r yesterday, vt-'re set up right on 
center line, looking real fine. The way the trajectory tracking is 
going, it does turn out that the. NC2 burn is going to be Just a little 
bit smaller than you've usual!?; 3een it in the - in the SIMS but - 
that's no problem. SC2 through TPI TICKS are nominal and be very 
close to where you've been seeing them before. Because of the slightly 
smaller NC2 burn, when we get to NSR It will have a little more of a 
radi»l coapenent then you have normally been seeing, but that' 3 no 
problem either. All will be very close to nominal, all the way 
in. Or.e moment on the NSft burn. The - it could go either way, but 

- it nay be as snail or at least as small enough such - like - a 
burn we did the other day, when ve had U load a different &!S nuaber 
other than 13. .0. Wa never really got to talk about that again, but 
in any ease,' there's the numbers that we pass to you to load in the 
:Vj ' though' thev'r** lever than -7, are okay to load in there and 
thVnunbeV to trim tc will be accurate. So 1 don't think there should 
be any problen i r, the rendezvous this morning. 
ACDR Okay. Good. 

CC-K Also, as ycu know, we've got a new team on here. 

We've beer, looking at what's been happening about the false al arts on 
the IS;- during the evening. I've read this report - as - to John 
Young's* flight on Apollo H' and ah - I don't think we're ffliasi hg any 
of th* «ace indications, at least, that he hid and that turned out to 
be false alarna and as Crip told you awhile ago, assuming that they 
are false alarms, you won't get any interruption of programs you re 

AODB Cf.ay. That's gocd. 

CC-'% okay . I gu«P3 that vafi a'r.-f>u'. it on the rendezvous.

PAO This is Apollo Control . Apollo successfully docked 

vith the Soyuz spacecraft about 6 minutes prior .to the prerniasion flight 
plan time, vith a ground elapsed time of 51: 1*9, \he capture latches had 
engaged and some 5 minutes later the secondary hooks had engage! for the 
hard dock. All of this tock place at Central Daylight Tine 'of about 11:25, 
I beg your pardon, about 11:15. Olynn Lunney, the AST? technical direc- 
tor for the United States had a conversation with his counterpart in the 
Soviet Union, Professor Konstatin Bushuyev. The tvo directors exchanged 
Congratulations vith each other on a' successful ■docking. As the docking 
nodule pilot, Deke Slay ton and Apollo comnander, Ton Stafford vent into 
the docking module to begin preparing it for the first transfer, they de- 
tected a - an odor; unexplained odor, that smelled as Tom described it 
as an acetate esse 1.1. It's unexplained at this tine, but no one here in 
the control center is particularly concerned about it; the conjecture is 
that since the docking &odule has been closed off for some U and 1/2 
hour? , the odor likely has accumulated frcȣ sonething like the furnace 
sample that vae renoved earlier in tho day and stoved in one of the lockers 
in the docking nodule and perhaps scorched some Velero - sonse Velcro tape 
that is used to restrain items stoved in the locks - in the locker. 
During Bushuyev arid Lunney' s co n\*ers at i on , Bushuyev did aention that 
Soviet leaders . vould converse vith the Soyuz spacecraft crev at 22:23 
Mcscov time; this is sor.e t ninute? ahead of the call that's scheduled 
by President Ford to the Apollo ere v. Actually, President Ford vlll speak 
to Stafford and Leonovj Lnonov will be vearing Deke 3iaytoi«'s headset so 
that he will be on the ar.e eocusunication circuit vith the Apollo crev. 
Next station in 21 :&inutes at ^uitc, Ecuador and a brief dropout after 
Quite loas of sip-rial; thic will be the final Quito pass of the afternoon.

PAO 66 hours, 25 minutes, ground elapsed time, this 

is Apollo Control. The docked spacecraft presently due south of the 
subcontinent of India on Soyuz revolution 38, had a somewhat interesting 
experiment here in mission control. Flight director Don Puddy requesting 
suggestions as to vhat it was that the Apollo crew sraelled when they 
first opened the docking zaodule yesterday morning. The crew noted a 
smelJ somewhat like that of acetone and during the evening the crew had 
performed a Einor fix on the nultipurpose furnace which is stored in 
the decking nodule . That fix involved the use of a velcro retainer 
and the experiment, here in mission control involved burning a peice of 
/elcro to see if a similar sr.eil is emitted by the velercw when it 
burns. According to Don Puddy the test shows absolutely nothing because 
velcro doesn't sr.eil very much when burned. It's a self extinguishing 
material and as remarked here in nission control it like burned 
velcr: , not liAe acetone at all. A couple accents earlier Joint

flight director about a pressure integrity probleia noted earlier this 
evening. The Soviets proposed a change in the specifications to the 
pressure integrity check. During the second and third transfers tomorrow 
the Soviets wish the transfers to be carried out perfectly nominally 
according to the prografc. They do want to change tho specifications 
for the integity check following the Hh and final transfer. They want 
to be sure that hatch j and are pressure tight. Essentially, vhat they 
want to do, they want the tunnel between hatch 3 and h to be therraally 
stablized and they're proposing two pressure integrity checks to accomplish 
this. The first pressure check will be a noraai check and the leak rate 
for that is 1 tniliiraeter in 6 ainutes. Jn addition to the no real pressure 
check, the Soviets want one' performed vhich would be 10 siillimeters in 
less than 6 ninutee. That's the magnitude of one difference there so 
f nil owing toaorrov's fourth crev transfer, the. Soviets vill be performing 
two pressure integrity checks cr. Apollo/Soyuz hatch U to sake Sure that 
the Soyuz hatch is air tight. The problem could be a problem in the 
dr.? king r»dul«. hatch, that's h&tsh 3 cr It could be as Neil Hutchinson

this procedure of closing hatch. And check the integrity of the hatch 
and monitorel the pressure of our spacecraft Soyuz. After that - 
after this check, ve went to sleep. We - and we slept well. -After 
we got up the first thing we did we checked the pressure in our ship. 
There was a slight increase in pressure between the two ships, but it was 
in signi ficant . It is net a big problem. And ve feel confident that 
we don't have to worry about this. Yesterday, we received a greeting from 
Soviet people. Greetings to the American astronauts, - presents of 
medals. Once again I want to repeat - this was an exciting meeting for 
both crews . This gave us great impetus to work harder. Yesterday, 
we had an opportunity to receive the greetings from President Ford.

00 - H (The next question is to - io for Alexey Leonov . 

Wiat type of space flight would you like to participate in the future?) 

d *» deeply convinced that all of us now - those 
tnat are flying aboard spacecraft and those who are not flying but vho 
are watching and listening to w - all of us are participants of only 
the beginning of a great human journey into outer space and there viil 
be all kinds of various space missions* in the future. Of course, I would 
like to once again to be aboard some other spacecraft which would be 
able to fly for a long tiiae around the earth so that with the eyes of 
an artist I could see the aulti-faceted appearance of our earth a very 
varied colors and appearances to forever retain it into memory and to 
give it to people. But also we would like - I would like to be at al- 
titudes higher than we are now. Troa there, the earth looks completely 
different. I think that at the beginning of our Journey - 1 think that 
x am at the beginning of my Journey and still we have - we have stfll a 
reserve of strength and age and I think we will participate in future 
apace sissions . ) 

MCC-H The next question is for General Stafford and it's 

tiie same as the one Colonel Leciov Juat answered. What kind of mis- 
sion would you two like to fly in space yourselves? 

ACDR Veil, you're talking about the next nission. "I vouid 

thin*, naturally, with the background and flight tests that you'd always 
like to fly a new and a better - well Eodern device and ve have one cok- 
ing along called the Shuttle and I would certainly like to fly that. 
And I would hope that if Alexey would have a vehicle developed by their 
country that we cculd fly nay-be in a Joint mission. And that would he 
why my wish that a'yis progress has always been a geonetric progresa and 
the benefits derived fron Science and technology have always helped all 
of cankind. t wouW hope <;hat the next mission - if I do fly one -- will 
be one of the nore code™ r.ype of vehicle that could have aore benefit 
for everybody, 

SCDR (And I also agree with Tote and I'd like to s&y that 

its- the spacecraft is one thing but another thing' is with whom vou're 
flying and r»d - this is what I'd like to point out, that I vculu iuwsy* 
iike to fly in space with friends to whom one trusts anrl who trusts in 
one and with whoa it is not dull to work with.) 

KCC-K The next question is also for General .it afford. Fron 

a practical standpoint, did you find talking to e\d. other i;, the listen- 
er's native tongue a desirable vay to cotsraunicate during th<» eo.T.tiicfct*d 
rendezvous and docking iaar.euvers? 

ACDR ^f course it is very inpertant) unci I ?.s*v cf course 

it was necessary again -. we developed this technique out of working to- 
gether over a ptiiod of nearly a year and that was over & year 
and a half ago that ve determined that, if we would listen to the other 
person speak in your own tongue, the individual would speaX slower, also 
oore distinctly, and would make fewer aietaXeH. And so it worked out beautiful 
as you saw in the rendezvous and the end results you saw on television 
and what you're seeing now is. U's also been a great experience for U3

Apollo crews, with Kubaaov and Slayton going to the Soyuz. On this 
pa38 across the States, Deke Slayton will be performing the Earth 
Observation Experiment. As Apollo crosses the Yucatan Peninsula, he 
will take photographs, looking for the eddies in the Yucatan Channel. 
And also, as the spacecraft passes over the Gulf, he'll be trying to 
determine if he can photograph and visually observe the Florida current 
in the strait of Florida. As Apollo passes over Taapa, he'il be asked 
to describe whether or not he's able to see the Red Tide, west of 
Tarspa Bay. And again, Red Tide will be the object of photographs as 
the vehicle pass»3 over the Cape Cod area. On this pass up the east

Soyuz cross the Siberian coast and the Japanese Island chain. Sixteen minutes 
until next acquisition at tracking ship Vanguard. And we're about 35 minutes 
away frora undocking. -Undocking will take place at 95: 1 *2 - first 
undocking. Just about 3 minutes before AT3-6 acquisition again. The 
go for undocking will be given at the upcoming Vanguard pass - co- 
ordination between the two spacecraft and between the two control 
centers and their respective spacecraft for the go no go for the 
undocking. The second docking, redocking will take place prior to loss 
of signal on this upcoming ATS-6 pass . Unlocking will take place over 
Chile at a latitude of about 51 degrees - 51 degrees , 10 minutes south 
at a longitude of 87 degrees, 33 nirmtea west. We'll return in 15 
ninutes for the pass across tracking ship Vanguard, final morning pass 
over that ship, This is Apollo Control at 95:08. 

PAO This is Apollo Control at 95:23, ground elapsed 

tine. Acquisition at tracking ship Vanguard in about 1»5 seconds. 
During the pass over Vanguard, both Spacecraft will be given go/no go 
for undocking at 95:^2. Undocking is at that tine. The Soyus crev 
will start their countdown clock at undocking minus 20 ainutes. And 
there's considerable spacecraft to spacecraft coordination involved 
vhere the Apollo crew will inform Soyuz on such events as opening the 
active hooks, opening the structural latches and the final countdown 
to the actual Undocking.

Skip Larson, is uncertain at thiB point as to why the ultraviolet ab- 
sorption experiment data was degraded, but he does suspect that some 
sort of reflectance (sic) interferred vith the light beams emitted from the 
optical absorption spectrometer on the docking module toward the retro- 
reflector on Soyust. And he's continuing to sort out the data and try to 
establish what the interference was. We're up live now and have contact

take at distance of 1 kilometer began at 102:22, va? an RCS burn and 
during the course of that burn, as the spacecraft ditched over, they 
did lose lock through the ATS -6 satellite because the aten - the high 
gain antenna was not programmed to track the satellite automatically, 
therefore the next contact vae made through the Madrid station through 
the the C-BAND OMNI antennas and shortly thereafter the crew vaa given

first was, vhat vas the relative brightness of the window light on

H<? Veil, the retro reflector was brighter, but I was 

very sur>-rise4 that 1 could aee that - the window light down there and I 
couldn't see it as veil aa 1 could the 150. It was dinser « - 

CC-H Deko, I'n afraid you have broken up. Ve heard you 

say that'll was diwter, but after thfet we couldn't reafl what yoj said. 

l*tp l said it was obviously dinsier. It's difficult

ACDR Loud and clear. How do you read us? 

CC_H 1 read you loud and clear, Tom. I've got a couple 

cf consents for you. First of all I just wanted to tell Deke that ve 
would like to get this furnace experiment work done about on time and 
so if he's running a little bit late on the denos, I don't know if he 
is or not, we'd like Ma - for him to interrupt that, do the furnace work 
and then back to the demos. Also, we're having - on the UVA experiment 
that's running now, we've got an indication that either we've got a 
transducer problem or possibly a problem with the N'2 lamps. And 
30 I've get a change to make for the UVA shutdown that you're going to 
be doing here in a few minutes. It's on page 10-7 or. the Joint ops check- 
list and that's - those pages - page 10-7, the Joint ops checklist. 
The pages are also located in the back of your experiments book. 

ACDR Okay, well Deke's running la^.e on t hit (garble) . It 

takes a lot to set all those little things up in zero g, lots rare than it 
did m 1 g. And I'll tell hia about the furnace?

C C_H Apollo, Houston for Tom. Tor, for your information, 

that little test that ve ran on the UVA - that you ran for us verified 
that that M2 lamp probler., was not a lamp problem but an instrument.- ion 
proh>n, and not only that, when you did it. it resynced the timing in 
there'and fixed the telemetry point. So it worked well and no degradation 

to the experiment. 

ACDR Okay. Real gvod. Thank you, Dick. 

. ff.H Roger. Thank you. 

rC-H Apollo, Houston. We still don't have any data, so 

ve really can't monitor how you're coming along. I Just' wanted to 
knew how you're doing on the option 1? ■■ . . 

CMP Not very veil, Dick. We're maneuvering like mad 

h*re. And it was a reel mistake to make an option 1 while we were 
maneuvering At this rate. If there wasn't so much light lost in 
the telescope, it vould be no problem. But it takes quite a Period 
of dark adaption to see any stars, and I can't even pick out Rigel yet, 
so I know I'm off several degrees just due to movement while the thing 
was post ch »rgit,.-.. 


ASTP (USA) MC388/1 • 

Time: 18:^6 CDT, 107:26 GET 


CMP - - several degrees Just due to movement while 

we were making those false torquings. 

CC-H Okay. What we'd recommend you do then is go ahead 

and we only have about 7 oinutea of night time left. We'd recommend : 
stopping the maneuver and be sure and get the option 1 because that ' 3 
mosv; important and - and then star*, the maneuver again. 

CMP Well, that's not the probler, Dick. It isn't the 

problem of having to stop the motion. The problem is that while the post 
torquing was going on, the spacecraft was moving and the platform vas 
frozen and auto optics is no help at all now. 

CC-H Roger . 

CM? I suggest we Just maybe press on since we only have 

7 minutes and let me go ahead and do the Earth obs , and then maybe the 
next night pn&s try to tweak out on a good P52 option 3. 

CC-H Okay. Stand by Just a second, please. 

CC-K Vance, the problem that we had looking at the flight 

plan is that we Just will not have time to do it during that next night 
pass because each EUV raster scan starts almost right there at dark- 
ness itself. And ve really want to get the raster scan since we missed 
the one the other day and - - 

CMP Okay. Well, I'll tell you how bad it is. I don't 

know if this telescope has more light loss than usual. It's not any- 
thing to compara with the simulator. And in my vhole telescope field 
of view right nov, with the dark adaption I've got. I can see one 
star. . ■ ' 

CC-H Roger. 

CKP Oh, I can see two nov. I'll try. 

• CC-H ■ Okay. 

AC£>R Yeah Dick , looking at the way they compress things 

on the timeline here to mtke sure that one has to follow ancther, 
it's really success oriented. And to iv? they've Just crammed too much i 
this one period hero. Although it's - doing this (garble) rate like 
this i:5, from what you can telescope, It's kind of bad. 

CfT wcrks grefvt for nn option 3, but It'*: very poor 

for an option .1 .

how we can help you Cut.

can't get the lead in, I tried sitting jpside dovn on the couch, but 

then all you can see it out is through other side of the vindov. It's really 

a hell of an awkvard situation. So ve want to pitch down at least 30

We understand thai. For when he includes mapping with vis obs, there's

you have some time to talk. .

we're assuming that you want to be with your back to the couch. la that 

ACDR Yeah. Well, (garble) the back to - I'm with wy back to 

the couch now, looking forward i And again, you » you can do it , but 
it Just seees eawier if your head's up on it looking down forward. Of 
course I guess you don't get the high-gain antenna, so that's something 
to play off. 

CC-H Yeah. We're going to have to look at tho high gain 

antenna. One other iten; have you got any real preference as to whether 
the objects are moving fross the top of the window, down or from the bot- 
tom of the window up? 

ACDR No, I don't think so; you talking retrograde? 

CC-H That's affira. 

aCDR No. I think it's easier when you get a lead into it 

coming for.-ord. 

CC-H Sorry, I didn't quite get all of that. You said a 

lead into it; would you prefer causing from the top of the window do vn, 

ACDR Veil, like right now, yeah, they're coming from the 

top of the window down, as they're going forward here. Listen, let's Just 
go ahead and see what we've got here for a while. Sometijue later on, as 
we get an opportunity where it's not coming into an antenna angle, 
we night Juat 'Jake a look at it and do it ourselves. 

CC-K Okay. One :ther - Okay. We'll - we'll go ahead and 

take a look at it. One of the things we are considering was the - 
using soae - the attitudes similar to the mapping pass that ve used for 
window 5 and only to set it up for v::idov 3. But we'll - we'll get - 
look at it dcwn here and get back sc that w can give you a new one.

DMP " WeiJ » I'll tell you. We Just passed Havaii , and 

got 2ero for two reasons. Number one, it's cloud covered over the 
Island that ve're looking for, and secondly, it's too far to the north, and 
don't know - this attitude is probably not the greatest. But I hesitate 
to reccornend abetter one right at this point. 

CC ~ H Ckay. We're still looking at it. A little bit 

reluctant to cos* up with attitudes because of a different attitude ihat 
we haven't really vrur.e out, like ve have wn&t we got, tut we're not

CMP Okay, Dick, we Just finished on Earth obs here, and 

talked to Crip about the Hawaii one. We hit the Washington (garble) 
line ar>d we did get a few pictures of that area and have accomplished our 
effort th*re. And we've been doing a little bit of experimenting since 
then. We've managed to strike in 10 degree down pitch towards the horizon 
ana we think we can tolerate about another 20 to get us into better viewing 
attitude for Earth obs. Problem we've get here is that ve can't wait to muc 
stuff above the horizon and out to the horiaon which is of no value to us 
at all. And when we get over the target ve t even get above it and 
it '3 already disapeared through the window. .-e having a real tough

itrcp rove ment . ■ . 

CC-H Deke, Houston. The only confusion I have on - on 

what you said was that - I thought you said that Vance haa already tried 
about another 20 i-?grees down and then you mentioned the 20 degrees and 
I was wondering if you thought that n total of 20 degrees for the pitch 
down or a total of ?0 for the pitch down would be abcut as much as you 
could st arid. 

DMP I'm talking a total of 30. We fried 10 and we're 

-itiii looking at a let of 3 tuff above the hori.-.on. So we think another 
20 on top of that might be about right.

CC _ H okay, 1 was gonna tell you that I aight drop out 

for a a*cond because we're getting ready to start a dump, but I dropped 
out in ihb middle of vhat I was aaying because ve starting the dump, d 
now I ' n back uy . 

Ci'-tP Okay. 

CC _ K And Apollo, Houston. Vance, when you get .a minute 

to listen, I had a comment to you about what you told us about the elites 
that you saw out on the Pacific awhile ago. 

CMP Okay. All right, yeah, go ahead. 

cc „j{ Okay. Farouk is here and we were talking to him, 

tne question that he hai that you might notice on the future passes 
over the Pacific if you see the sa*e thing was the color and the texture 
of the ocean down between the clouds and he's interested '.here mainly 
in the -ea surface conditions and not Just the clouds. Thought you 
might - I have aone news soeetiee later on this evening that I'll have 
available if you'd like to hear it. There's one iter* in here that I 
thought I'd read to you. It s&ya an earthquake which struck an area 
off the western Pacific today proopted a tidal wave alert for parts of 
Hawaii but was later cancelled. The University of California Seismograph! 
laboratory at Berkeley reported that an earthquake registering a 7.7 
on the Bichter Scale occurring at 7:50 a.m. Pacific daylight tine and 
they were centered in the region of the Soloman Islands. The - for 
your information the Solomans are about 2Q00 miles to the southwest of 
Hawaii Ve did check with our recovery weather people Ju3t a minute ego 
and itturns out that they have not seen any tidal wave action as a 
result of the earthquake either at Hawaii or at ^uadland. 

COT YeAh, that is interesting. We've been flying re- 

peatedly over that area of course but 1 don't know if you can see 
something like that from up here. 

CCH Roger. Yeah, you're not going to be flying over 

direct area here in the Aext pass or so. I Just thought you night be 

interested in that one. 

CMP Yea)., that i3 very Interesting. After our last 

conversation I took distance *ea - or siie B eas'uren*nts on a f«v of the 
eddies we've seen and seer* like a typical size is 10 to 15 kilometers 

in diameter. 

CC-H OX ay. Copy. 

lPA But we have seen some giant ones that would be tens 

of kilometers so we'll try to look at them nore closely in the future 
and see what the 3ea state looks like . 

^C_H Okay, thanks alot, Vance .

CC-H Stand by on that Just a second, Ton. Please. 

CC-H Tom, in answer to your question. As soon an you 

get the x-ray cover closed after your ,?ive minute wait, yeah, go ahead 
ami do the maneuver. 

ACDR Okay, ATS is coming up right now. 

CC-H Yeah, I uarked it too and I noticed it was very 

clwe to that. 

ACDR Okaj-, that x-ray cover is closed. 

CC-H Okay, fine, tois. Incidentally, while I'm talking 

to you and we're talking about maneuvering. * wonder if I could have 
a second. It appears that we're developing an unbalanced in the propellant 
in quads Alpha and Charlie and we think we can atop thi3 imbalance 
trend by changing the one J«t configuration on panel 8. And that ia 
ir. *.he roll Jets, what we'd like to do is turn Bravo, correction, turn 
D<?lta 2 to aain A and then turn bravo 2 to OFF. And of course if 
vou needed to got back to the nominal configuration, due to soaie problem, 
or forgot what Lt it', those little decals that mark - that's pointed 
v.vard B? would remind you which ones it was. Ani inci ientally - - 

~MP Okay. Understand , Dick. We'll - would you like 

to have us do that right ntv 

CC-H Yeah, what we'd like to do ia go ahead and put 

D2 to MAIN A and B2 to OF? . And incidentally for your inforration 
we're not going to have to be switching these back and forth. This 
configuration ia good for the SIM BAY experiment. 

A CDR Okay, good, Ve have a Delta .?. ON and Bravo 2 OFF. 

CC-H Okay. Heal fine. Thanks a lot .

CC-H - - while Cleveland was defeating California 

and tho Y.ankeea took Minnesota in J chn firrt game of & double header. 
And the last thing I have in the news here is also on the sports scene. . 
It turns out that Rs^ph and Tgneoio scurried down six foot plastic 
tubes and crawled away with top honors over the weekend in the first 
Hawaiian cockroach racing festival . Soae 2000 persons shaved up at 
the park bandstand near W&ikikl Beach to watch the coppttition sponsored 
by a local radio station and the city's department of parks and recreation. 
Darryl Avora ( ?) 15 years old picked up his champ Halph at the festival's 
rent -a- Poach booth. "The ore I caught at home was too alow, he explained 
after Ralph streamed down his tube to victory. Rene R&maeio l?) 15 
years old borroved a roach from a friend to run in the adult competition 
md christened his competitor Ignacio. He frantically tapped on the tube 
to urge Ign&cio on aid his efforts were rewarded when the roach abandoned 
his initial hesitation and scurried to victory. Avora (?) said that 
he would keep Ralph as long as possible with en cutside chance that 
there will be a defending champion next ye<»r. We'll Just have to see 
how long he lasts. And I like the last line the best. He sa^g "Right 
now I Just want to take him house and show hira to ny aother."

a pill - a pantgan(t) pill, which would increase the amount of potaselua 
in his blood. And Dr. (garble) indicated that that would indicate on 
the EKO teleaetry that they have a better heart rate for Leonov. Dr. 
Jerry Hordinsky Is not unconvinced that the Soviets were not prescribing 
panlgan(t) as a prophylatic svedlcine. There's nothing in the air-to- 
ground that Dr. Hordinsky saw which would indicate that Leonov had 
any proble*. Also, (garble) indicated that for \he past several Soyus

One of the 

ASTP (USA) 508/2 

Tiawi 11:29 CDT, ll*8j09 Q2T 


ie that - we've had a rather large oil slick, about 1»0 miles long and 
5 »U*8 witii, report, Od about 50 miles east of Key West. And ve think 
that, that probably should bo visible from th* number 1 window in the 
command module, when you coee across there on the next rev. 

DMP Okay. That's 50 vest of Key West. 

CC-H East. East of Key Vest. 

DMP Okay. 50 east. 

"C-H Okay. And we're - It's going to be available to 

you Just about - oh, part of that red tide area, when you're coning 
across - about the ease area, there. A little before it 

DMP Okay. 

CC-H Okay. The other one was - 

j«P Before it. 

CC-H Okay. The other one was that - I think Vance had 

asked Farouk to look in the Funk and Woods "Captain Cousteau" regarding 
Bose sea-fortcing sites. And we got some data back that one of thea 
is going to - that he's considering this on tho eastern edge of the 
Adriatic Sea. And you're going to be coming across it. And it should 
be visible froai number 3 window, on rev 91. at abcut GET. And 
you con take a look at your book at target 9 -J and at least get an Idea 
of the area by the Adriatic. 

Z' 1 ® Okay. Rev 91, 11*9: Uk t to 9-J - and what was the 

window number? 

CC-H Window nuzber 3 - the big one there. 

CC_H Okay. The other itesr was that - is - Tom hid talked 

t'j the ground yesterday, regarding use of the Nikon, since you" guy* 
vere getting a little bit short on film there, for targets of opportunity. 
Basically, we're telling you you need to use the photo cue card, but I've 
got some recozmendations, if you want to copy them down. 

2MP Okay. Go ahead. 

CC-H Okay. Recommend using the 300 millimeter lent, 

although some of the problems we've had from Skylab indicates it might 
- that might end up blurring a Sittle bit. But we can try It. We 
recommend a shutter speed of 1/1,000. And for your. CI film, your 
interior film - use your exterior photo cue card, table bravo, but 
increase each settir^ by 1 F-stop. For example, instead of - if it 
calls for K-8, ve want you to use F-ll . And for CS film - Charlie 
?ierra - *e want you to use table B directly. 

DMP Okay. 

CC-H Okay. And if you have a chance to record any of 

your photos on your voice record- - 


A8TP im) H3509A / 
Time? U;?9 CUT, i^«X9 . 

CC-H - • v# want you to uae Fil. And for C8 

film, Charlie flierra, ve want you to use Table B directly. 
ACDR Okay. 

CC-H Okay. An< * if you have a chance to record any of 

your photos on your voice reoorder, ye'd appreciate It also. 
ACDR We've been doing that. 

CC-H Yeah. I thought ycu probably veve. 

CC-H And that's - that's all I vas holding for you right .. 

now. Let you get back to - to observing the world. 

ACDR Okay. Fine. I appreciate that. Probably they'd 

have it here - it seems like about the time ve get ready for a good old <; 
dip or crystal growth is when ao we ace the exciting things. Of coura* -*©Vo 
out of the way and we're not really very euro, but those (garble).

that when the 60 minutes v*re up, the first band had regressed from 118

CC " H Ck V- re «l fiw. Appreciate that report also. 

ACDR Ciij, I forgot to tell you that ve did not see 

the oil slicks you talked about east of Key Vest. I think ve vere 
too far. North for one thing, and secondly there was a cloud cov-r all 
over the vest coast of Florida, pretiy *uch over the state. 

CC-K Okay, I vas afraid that was too much of an 

oblique angle for you to get a shot at it. We thought, take a look, 
at it anyhow. Pretty - reported to be a pretty good size. 

ACDR Hey, Crip. ■ On that STE, the first band vas stopped 

a.,,60 curates. Tne first, bsr.d vent froa 118 to 122. aillileters . The 
second band from 87 to 99 alii ileters . The column voltage was fluctu-

and it doesn't tell you not to freeze. Ve could see samples k all right. 
Maybe the flight plan has a thing that says "Do not freete," or soaething. 

CC - K Yes, I think, Toa, that the vay that it vas intended to 

by done vas go to the flight plan to tell you which of the procedures 
to do anU then of course go to the checklist - you knov - to accomplish that

too siany rainutes . And after that for the whole rest of that ATS pass 
we don't have anything that would interfere except for that SIM - there 
is sotae SIM operations there at sunrise. So, ny suggestion would be^ 
to - at ATS AOS would be to - for you to be prepared to do the exercise.
