PAO This is Shuttle launch control at T-35 minutes and 

counting. Activation of the S-band to high power is complete and 
the support personnel at the landing sites and booster retrieval 
area are being pulled on their readiness to support the launch. 
The solid rocket boosters will be recovered after launch by two 
ships operated for NASA by United States Boosters, Inc. The UTC 
Liberty and the UTC Freedom departed their docks here at about 
8:30 a.m. yesterday morning. The booster's impact approximately 
140 miles due east of the Kennedy Space Center in the Atlantic. 
The ships take approximately 10 hours to reach the impact area. 
Beginning at seven and a half hours before launch the ships have 
bean conducting a five hour electronic and visual search of the 



t 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tOOlj GMT 315:11:20 U/iJ/82 PAGK 2 



impact area to ensure that the area is clear. At T-35 minutes 
the ships arrive on station just 8 miles from the predicted 
impact point. This is several miles closer to the impact zone 
then on previous flights. The booster casings suspended from 
their parachutes will hit the water at about 62 miles per hour. 
Commander Vance Brand looking out the window on the Orbiter 
commented to the launch team on how beautiful the sky was, he 
said it's a red sky and no clouds and he thanked them for 
arranging that for the launch this mornina. The countdown going 
smoothly, the clock at T-33 minutes, 2F. seconds and counting, 
this is Shuttle Launch Control.

KSC The closeout crew which had been proparinq the 

first the cabin of the Orbiter for the crew and then preoared the 
axis arm to be retracted from the vehicle has reached the road

SPACECRAFT 30. 2 0 

CAPCOM That's confirm. And I've qot a couple of words 

here for you about tho procedures on the CRTs . The fail to sync 
here is, we have three specs that are really susceptible to the 
fail, to sync. That's on spec 0, 1 and 2 and during OPS 9 we have 
an additional spec, spec 104, and if you have these specs on two 
CRT s simutaneously that gives us a high susceptabi 1 i ty to fail 
to sync. Also note that you were previously briefed that the 
launch (garble) display came into this, that is not correct, the 
launch (garble) is clean, and you can have it up on whatever 
CRT's you need it. 



SPACECRAFT Okay and how about spec 0?

That's CDR, that's verified. CRT 3 PFS memory 

( q .1 r b 1 e ) 

KSC This is Shut t I- Launch Control T-21 minuter and 

counting. The primary computer program was presently being 
transferred to the backup computers in the Orbitsr in order for 
both systenu; to have the same information. In case the prime 
computer fails during flight, the backup would take over control, 
of the Shuttle vehicle. 

Correction, would you close the cabin vent valve. 

KSC The Orbiter tost conductor has asked Commander 

Vance Brand to close the cabin vent valves once again. We're 
cominq up on the, one of two remaining builtin hold periods. 
This i<-> a 10-minute builtin hold. About 20 seconds away from 
tnat hold. 

And CDR reports close vent valves procedure 

compl ete . 

KSC We're about 10 seconds away now from the builtin 

hold of 10 minutes, 

KSC The crew has been informed that if an abort should 

be necessary they will return to the Kennedy Space Center and 
we're at T-20 minutes and holding. This is a 10 minute builtin 
hold, with all computers in the firing room, or control room, are 
configured with proper programs for the final portion of the 
countdown. At the time that we come out of the hold, the onboard 
computer will be changed over to the flight program. Also during 
this hold the inertial measuring units preflight alignment will 
be completed. 

(garble) 
Go ahead. 

KSC The ST5- 5 flight is unique in many ways. It's 

the first operational mission for the Space Shuttle. The first 
four flights were considered development flights. Now the 
Shuttle is taking the first steps to paying it's own way by 
carrying communications satellites for Satellite Business Systems 
and Telesat Canada, that country's domestic satellite 
communications corporation. The two companies are paying nore 
than 17 million dollars for this flight. This will also be the 
first Shuttle mission in which the astronauts will leave the 
cabin area to go out into the cargo bay during flight. The two 
mission specialists, Dr. William Lenoir and Dr. Joe Allen, will 
spend approximately 3 and 1/2 hours outside of Columbia's 
cabin. Their primary objective is to test their ability to move 
around the cargo bay and do useful work. They feel that their 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT 1 0 0 3 i GMT 315:11:37 11/11/82 PACK 2 



ability in this area will bo qroatly enhanced by tho knowledqo 
accumulated previously durinq the Gemini and Anollo and sky lab 
proqrams. Two of the lessons learned on those proqrams was that 
a positive method of movinq from place t^« place must be provided 
otherwise the astronaut expends too much enorqy. And that if 
useful work is to be done then restraints must he orovidod to 
keep the astronaut in the proper position to do that work. We 
are in the 20 minute bu i 1 t i n hold and have about 9 minutes 
rcmaininq in that hold. Evorythinq has qone voiy smooth! v at 
this point and the NASA test director is in the process of havinq 
the people who will be monitor inq the final oart of this 
countdown switch from the many channels that they have been on to 
just one channel so that they remain toqether and hear, all hear

OTC, copy. 

(qarblo) 

Okav MPD. If we do have a hold is qiven to the 
countdown clock. Tho clock will qo to the next CI,S milestone 
prior to stoppinq. And accordinq to those milestones are 9754 
255 157 and 31 seconds. For Sts-5 the total hold time at T-9 is 
33 minutes which is our total launch window. Okay, after we nick 
up the countdown clock at T-9 and prior to reachinq T-31 
seconds. Our maximum hold time is 7 minutes duo to VOX drain 
back and APU run time. After 31 seconds no hold is available, 
only cutoff. At the start of the talk at T-9 and we picked up on 
an even GMT, however any hold after GLS start the countdown clock 
will be picked up immediately followinq the oroblom from 
resolution. And in this case a NO GO a NO GO survey of the 
elements will be asked and the pickup of the countdown clock will 
laq the MPD mark by about 3 seconds. A GO at 9 indicates that 
all elements are free of any problems that would give us a 
successful T 0. So that means, if element is NO GO, if a problem 
exists, even though it can bo resolved prior to T 0. Okay, once 
we pick up the count clock at T-9 and it exceeds the hold limits, 
there can be no recycle for launch today, due to the fact that 
recycle time exceeds the 33 minute launch window. LCC violation 
should be reported as trend is seen and not wait until the 
redline is broken. And PLT at T-5 do not start the APU's until 
you hear GO for APU start. We want to...

the countdown at the T-20 minute Doint. At the present time the 
NASA test director, Norm Carlson, is asking each of the test 
conductors to verify that they are go to resume the count and

KSC The landing convoy is confirmed that it's ready to 

support the launch along with all of the possible landinq 
sites. The chase nlane pilots have been ordered to man their 
planes. We're just about a minute and 30 seconds away from 
picking up the countdown once again. The landing recovery 
director has informed the crew that if they should have a return 
to launch site abort the vehicle would land on runway 15. And it 
is also reported that the landing facility is ready to support

PAO This is Shuttle Launch Control. T minus 13 

minutes and counting. We're coming up on another built in hold 
at the T minus 9 minute point in the count. The NASA test 
director will be conducting a poll once again of the major 
managers to verify that they are ready. During the past couple 
of minutes the solid booster test conductor ordered the gaseous 
nitrogen purge turned on in the aft portion of the solid motor. 
This will continue up to engine ignition. We also have 
verification from the DOD contingency support group that they are 
ready for launch with emergency aircraft personnel on their 
stations. The NASA test conductor has just polled the launch 
team once again, and all members of the team, including launch 
director L. O'hara, and the astronauts have given a go. Coming 
up on the 12 minute point in our countdown. There are three 
student science experiments on board the Space Shuttle for this 
mission. The Shuttle Student Involvement program is a nationwide 
program which is sponsored by the National Science Teachers 
Association and NASA. The three experiments were selected from 
hundreds of high school finalists across the country. All three 
of the students are presently college freshman. Michelle Isel 
from Wallingford, Conneticut has desiged an experiment to 
determine whether weiqhtl essness eliminates the cause of 
malformation in crystals. The triglycene sulfate she is using is 
a candidate for infrared sensors on satellites. Hamilton 
Standard, who built the space suits for the extravehicular 
activity, is the sponsor for Michele. Scott Thomas of Johnstown, 
Pennsylvania is studying the process of convection in zero 
gravity to see if surface tension of a fluid plays a major role

minutes, 30 seconds and countinq. The flight crew has closed the 
vent valve on the crew cabin and the cabin pressure has been 
verified. The comparison of the prime computer with the onboard 
computer has been completed and is satisfactory. All 
aerosurfaces and actuators on the orbiter are presently in the 
proper configuration for the auxiliary power unit to start at the 
T minus 5 point. We're coming up on the beginning of another 
final 10 minute build in hold T minus 9 minutes and holding. 
This is a 10 minute build in hold. When we come out of this hold 
we will go directly down to 7:19 and launch. During this hold, 
the launch team is briefed on the the way in which a halt can be 
called to the countdown. During the final 9 minutes of count, a 
hold can be called by the NASA Test conductor, The Orbiter Test 
Conductor, the Flight Crew, the Flight Director as well as the

PA0 This is Shuttle Launch Control at t minus 9 

minutes and holdinq. We have approximately 7 minutes remaining 
in this hold. When we come out of the hold we have several major 
milestones remaining in the count. As we come out of the hold 
the ground launch sequencer located in the firinq room 
integration council will take over command of the remaininq 
events as well as monitorinq the response of the various shuttle 
systems. At T minus 25 seconds, the flight computer redundant 
set launch sequencer takes over on board the orbiter and checks 
that no launch commit criteria will be violated durinq the 
remaininq seconds of the count. At T minus 5 minutes, the 
auxiliary power units will start. To turn on the auxiliary power 
units, the astronauts must throw 9 switches. One switch for each 
of the three auxiliary power units opens the propel lant isolation 
valve. Three switches start the auxiliary power units, and the 
final three switches allow the qear boxes to be pressurized and 
begin pumping the hydraulic fluid. jn the past, the astronauts 
monitored the pressure changes after each sequence of switches 
but since then the countdown, or the pressur i zat ion , has boon 
monitored here on the ground. since th« countdown can bo 
automatically halted at T minus 4 minutes if one switch has not 
been thrown, the astronauts now simplv throw all of thn switches 
as fast as possible. At t minus A minutes a purge of the main 
engines will start. At T minus 2 minutes and 55 seconds, 
pressur ization of the liquid oxvgen tank will beqin and at 1 
minutes, 57 seconds, the liquid oxvqon valve will be closed. We 
have nust heard from the Range Safety Officer that there is a 
shjp in the impact area of the (qarble) where the solid rocket 
boosters will impact and so there i s a no go from the Range 
Safety Officer at the present time. We are in the process of 
going through a countdown of status checks to see if we are readv 
to resume the count and go for launch. Following iqnition of the 
solid motors and liftoff, the vehicle will take approximately 7 
seconds to clear the tower. At that point the shuttle velocity 
will be greater than 100 feet per second and increasing. When 
the velocity reaches 121 feet per second the vehicle will begin 

.k^u oyer followed by a roll maneuver to align it properly 
with the flight asmuth. At 67 seconds into the flight, the 
vehicle will encounter the greatest structural loads on it 
Prior to that the crow will throttle down the main engine thrust 
to B5 percent to keep the dynamic pressure low. After the 
vehicle is through the max que region, the crow will increase the 
^V- U L 2u k to ,!°° P° rcGnt - At approximately 2 minutes into the 
flight, the solid rocket boosters chamber pressures will drop 
below 50 pounds per square inch and the separation sequence will 
start. And the main engines will continue to burn for 8 minutes 
and 35 seconds and the external tank he separated ?1 seconds 
Inter. At that point the orbiter will be at an altitude of 
approximately 60 nautical miles. We have approximately 4 minutes

should occur in the next few hours for Brand, Overmyer, Lenior, 
and Allen to stay on orbit. The onboard computer system is 
reloaded from ops 1 to ops 2. This is needed to align the 
inertial platforms. Also 1 computer will be loaded with ops 3, 
the entry program and put to sleep, taken offline. Second, the 
payload bay doors must be open to provide cooling through the 
radiators to Columbia. The flash evaporator has a lifetime of 
several hours. We're at 36 minutes, 50 seconds Mission Elapsed

apparently failed within the CRT of the OKU. It is flashing with 
only the upper one quarter of the screen lighted, and say in the 
lower one quarter of the screen is lighted, and it shows the 
stuff that would normally be up on the upper one quarter and it's 
flashing at about a 2 second rate. But we've power cycled it and 
brought it back on and we've tried to drive it with the BFS, no 
joy, it looks like it was a CRT problem. 

CAPCOM Okay, we copy that Rob. 

SPACECRAFT It's a little bit like your home TV having the 

picture slide down to the kind of lower left corner of the tube 
and then start flashing at a 1 CPS rate.

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, the target's, the TIMBU's 

and excel I biases are all onboard now, 

SPACECR,, r Okay. Thanks. 

CAPCOM And the targets are looking good. 

SPACECRAFT I wonder if you can do something to help us do a 

lot of earching up here. We got the long water hose for the 
dispenser and we thought it was supposed to have a faucet on that 
and, where's the faucet or the fixture on the end of it or are we 
finding the wrong h'^e? 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t029j 11/11/82 GMT 315:18:12 PAGE 2 



CAPCOM Okay. Understand you're missing the dispenser on 

the end of... the faucet on the end o£ the water dispenser. 

SPACECRAFT I thouqht that roavbe there somewhere somebody just 

tell us where to start looking for it. We're not sure. 

CAPCOM Okay. We're working on it. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston we've got about a minute left in 

this Guam pass. We notice you've got a S76 comm fault message. 
Do you know what caused that? 

SPACECRAFT (garble). Mike, this is Joe. We were 

experimenting with the VTR and the monitors here and the message 
came up during that time. We have had no power on the camera 
since we ooened the payload bay doors, so we think that it may be 
some kind of a false message. It's since gone away and the 
camera (garble) message. 

CAPCOM Okay Joe. We copy that and that's understood now 

and expected. 

SPACECRAFT We're iust puzzled why a camera (garble) came up 
because they were turned off. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, we have about 8 seconds 

left in the pass. We'll talk to you through Hawaii at 6 plus 05. 

SPACECRAFT Roger. We'll see you then.

hours, Into the 5th flight of orbiter Columbia. Loss of Signal 
through Guam. About 4 and 1/2 minutes roughly away from 
reacqui ^ition through Hawaii. Spacecraft communicator Mike Coats 
read up to the crew of Columbia the numbers they will need for 
the pavloa-1 deploy the SBS, and also for the seoaration burn that 
happens some 15 minutes later. Deplov time is now, a elapsed 
time of 7 hours 58 minutes 35 seconds. The separation burn will 
be 2 OMS engine burn, both engines of 16 ft per second posigrate, 
which will be 15 minutes later, 15 minutes after deploying the 
SBS. Back in about 3 minutes at Hawaii, Mission Control Houston. 

PAO This is Mission Control Houston, 50 seconds now 

away from reacquisition of Columbia through Hawaii. Slightly 
over one orbit away now from deployment of the SBS satellite on 
the next orbit, orbit number 6, as Columbia sweeps down across 
the Eastern Pacific. Crew will move to their deployment 
checklist, as they beqin this rev. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, with you through Hawaii for 7 

and 1/2 minutes, over. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, loud and clear. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, the continqencv water 

dispenser can be found in the IFM locker MF43K. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, yeah, we wore lookinq there Mike, but we 

can't find the, there should be an end on the thinq riqht? 

SPACECRAFT Should be an end on the thing, we got all kinds of 

contingency water, or not contingency water dispenser. What I'm 
looking for is the water dispenser that attaches the hose that 
attaches the operational water dispenser, Mike. 

CAPCOM Okay, we're looking at that.... 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, we'd like to verify that 

you tried location ML84K to get the water hose and dispenser next 
to window shade back. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, that's where wo didn't look, we were looking 

in the wrong place. ML24K, 

CAPCOM Roger, ML84K. 

SPACECRAFT 84, ML84K. 



CAPCOM That's correct, and as far as that SPEC 76 COMM 

message, anytime that the VTR's in playback, the video control 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t030j GMT 315:18:17 11/11/82 PAGE 

unit treats it as a camera and this sense a temperature 

that's not there. Which means any kind of noise in the system 

causes that message. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Mike that's exactly what happened. That 

explains it, thank you. 

CAPCOM Roger Joe. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, we're 45 seconds to LOS, 

we'll talk to you again through the States at 6 plus 16, we'd 
like to request that you go ahead and take the APU heater gas

PAO This is Mission Control Houston, Loss of Signal at 

Hawaii, about 8 minutes away from when the crew of Columbia will 
deploy SBS. The television picture through Hawaii showed the 
satellite spinning at approximately r >2 revolutions per minute, 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t033j GMT 315:19:20 11/11/82 PAGE 3 

all systems aboard SBS appear to be normal at this time, and at 
Santiago about 20 minutes from now, we should get a report from 
the crew on the deployment. The spacecraft will be deployed 
about 1200 nautical miles west of the Galapagos Islands at 109 
degrees west longitude approximately, as orbit 6 crosses the 
equator. The springs that push the satellite out of the cradle 
are preloaded to approximately 1400 pounds compression, and will 
impart about 3 feet per second, velocity awav from the orbiter. 
Some 30 minutes after deploy, Columbia will be maneuvered in a 
posigrade direction of about 16 feet per second in the so called 
separation maneuver, so that the orbit then will be nine miles 
hiqher at periqee. The 160 by 169 nautical miles. That is 15 
minutes after the deploy maneuver, and then 30 minutes later it 
will be above and behind the satellite, at some 18 miles. This 
is one of the many paradoxes of space flight where you speed up 
to slow down. Reing in a higher orbit, the Doriod is longer, 
therefore you begin to fall behind another object travelling in 
the original orbit. The SBS weighs some 2300 pounds at the time 
of deploy, however,

PAO The SBS weighs some 2300 lb at the time of 

deploy. However, after both of the upper stages have done their 
thing, the weight is down to 1300 lb. The perigee kick motor 
which will ignite f;ome 45 minutes after deployment, will boost 
the satellite up to 22,300 nautical miles at apogee. The perigee 
will remain at 160 until the apogee kick motor is fired several 
days from now by Ground Command. Eighteen minutes from 
acquisition at Santiago. Five minutes away from deploying SBS. 
This is Mission Control at 7 hours, 52 minutes. 

PA0 Mission Control, Houston. We have AOS through 

Santiago. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston with you through Santiago for 2

Roger. We're really looking forward to seeing 



SPACECRAFT Mike, we hope the TV comes out. It doesn't play 

back very well on our monitor but we're relatively sure we got it 
and we, by the way, still have that beautiful satellite in 
sight. It's travelling just below us. 

CAPCOM Roger. We coDy Bill, and Joe and got a lot of 

happy people down here. You guys did good work. 

CAPCOM Roger, we copy. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston. Everything's looking qood 

for the burn. We're 30 seconds to LOS and we'll' talk to you 

again through Botswana at 8 plus 31. 

CAPCOM Roger. We concur. 

PA0 Mission Control, Houston. SBS was successfully 

deployed on time and in the proper attitude. We deliver as the 
crew said, early in the Santiago pass. Sixteen minutes to next 
acquisition which looks like is Indian Ocean and in the following 
Hawaii pass we ought to get a replay of the onboard recorded 
television of the deployment sequence itself which Joe Allen said 
ought to look pretty good, at least from their monitoring of the 
television onboard. A little bit of handshaking hero with the 
Deputy Administrator of NASA, Hans Mark, congratulating the 
Flight Control Team for successful deployment of SBS. Returning

acquisition of Columbia through Botswana voice relay station. 
Should have a report on the separation burn at this time. V.'e're 
some 13 minutes away from ignition of the perigee kick motor on 
the SRS satellite. At the time of ignition, the Columbia should 
be roughly 18 nautica] miles above and behind SBS, belly toward 
the satellite. They will not be able to see it nor photograph it 
or make TV pictures of the iqnition from that attitude. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. We're with you through 

Botswana for 5-1/2 minutes. Over. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Houston. Loud and clear.

CAPCOM Roger, we copy that. We'd like you to veri that 

camera delta is off. We see the COM Fault mesasge caused by 
high camera temperature and we want to know if you turned off 
camera delta. 

SPACECRAFT Mike, that's verified off. It may have been 

getting some fairly direct sun, and we had it on during the 
deploy but turned it off shortly thereafter. 

CAPCOM Roger, Joe. We copy. Thank you. 

SPACECRAFT And after the burn, we looked out throu-- the

be required tonight. But turn off that fast, we may raise h 
cabin temperature a little bit, and if it gets warm in t ^m, the 
cabin temp control procedure is on the orbit OPS checklist, ic 
5-7. And if the temperature does c ■> up, it may raise the s! in 
pressure a bit. If you get that cabin atmosphere caution w,. :ninn 
due to a high cabin press, you can raise the cabin press <

raise that to 3.85, revise 3.8. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, copy. Tonight, well first of all, I iu t 

turned on FES prime A, no water dumD tonight, cabin tomp may 
rise. If so, follow procedure on orbit ops 5-7 and if w< 're

the topping evap heater duct? Leave it in A for a while. 

CAPCOM Roger, Vance. We'd like you to leave it in A for 

awhile please. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Mike when you got a minute I got a question 

for you. 

CAPCOM Go ahead. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, this is Bill. Looking ahead to the VTR 

dump. What points of the deploy do you want. Do you want just 
the deploy or do you also want the mechanical sequence? 

CAPCOM Stand by Bill. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, we'd like to get the VTR 

dump about deploy minus ^ minutes through the deploy. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, understand. You're not interested in 

mechanical sequence. You just want the deploy part. 

CAPCOM Roger. We saw the mechanical sequence start 

before and we'd just like to get a few mir jtes before deploy and 
then a few minutes after deploy. And we're qoing LOS right 
now. We'll talk to you through IOS in about 2 minutes.

hear that the PAM burn was nominal, it's on it's way to geo sync, 
and the SBS director would like to pass alonq his thank you and 
congratulations. 



SPACECRAFT Well thank you, and thank them for us Mike, and 

give them our congratulations and good wishes, and we would like 
to hear about the apogee burn whenever it happens in a day or so. 

CAPCOM Roger that. 

SPACECRAFT Houston (garble).... 

PAO This is Mission Control Houston. Through the 

Indian Ocean station, the SBS periqee kick motor was observed to 
ignite on time, perfectly nominal burn. The SBS is now on its 
way out to apoqee of 22300 miles. The perigee kick motor has 
separated from the spacecraft. Next station up coming will be 
Guam in 17 minutes. At 8 hours 49 minutes in day one of STS-5 ,

SPACECRAFT Loud and clear Houston. 

CAPCOM Roger. We read you loud and clear. 

SPACECRAFT Now we've got the TV set up for the Hawaii dump 

and my intent is to give you about a half a minute's worth of 
ascent and then the deploy and as much following that as you 
would like. It looks like there is a fair amount of sun problems 
where the sun has washed out the PAM but if you have patience it 
will come back in when the Earth comes in the scene. 

?Smf™ . , • ° kay ' We copY that and be ^vised that the 
INTLSAT tracking station at Yammagootchie had a good track on the 
satellite. it looks like a less than average coning. 
Indications that the omni deployed okay and they're ready for 
transfer orbit ops. 

SPACECRAFT Outstanding. Very, very good. Mike, I'm assuming 

that when you were looking at the mechanical sequence, the 
sunshield opening in the spinout itself, that you did tape that, 
that you have that on the ground already. 

CAPCOM That's affirmative Bill. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. I'll just give you the deploy part then.

CAPCOM We're looking forward to it. 

PA0 Mission Control, Houston here. LOS at Guam, 7 

minutes away now from Hawaii where the crew will feed down video 
tape recording of the SBS satellite deploy from toward the end of 
the activation sequence through the actual deployment and as the 
spacecraft moves away from Columbia and the Earth comes into view 
beneath. Another major first in this flight, the satellite 
deployment sequence. We'll return in 6 minutes at Hawaii.

CAPCOM And we're receiving a good TV. 

SPACEC r 'AF'i (garble) the audio's with it. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, you can expect a PSP 

message. We're gettinq ready to turn off the Payload COMM 
system. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. And the hydraulic thermal condition enable 

was completed, page 1-2 Mike. 

CAPCOM Roger, Bob. We see you that. Thank you. 

SPACECRAFT If you got a second, you might pass some words to 

the habit ability guys. I've been trying the suction cup shoes 
most of the diy, and they really haven't been doing me that much 
good. They kind of hold when you don't want them to hold and let 
go when you want thou to hold. 

CAPCOM Roger, wc copy that Bob. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, we've got a super shot of 

the payload coming out. 

SPACECRAFT Out of curiosity, is i overdriven? 

CAPCOM No, we're starting to qet a little blooming here 

about 30 seconds after deploy, but it looks real good. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, fine. Wo get a fair amount more of blooming 
than you do apparently. And Mike, I'd like one more additional 
word to that comment about the suction cup shoes. 

CAPCOM Go ahead nob. 

SPACECRAFT We went ahead and mounted on the aft flight deck 

the portable toe restraints, or the paste on toe restraints, and 
they're really working great. I've used them back there and the 

guys who were back there for the deploy used them and those are 

really outstanding. I think right now we kind of wish we had a 

couple more, like 4 of them, up in that aft area there right now. 

CAPCOM Roger, we copy. And Columbia, Houston, we'd like 

to send up some variable parameters. We'd like Spec 1 on GNC 
machine t lease. 

SPACECRAFT Again Mike. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t038j GMT 315:21:36 11/11/82 PAGE 2 

CAPCOM Roger, I say again we'd like a Spec 1 on a GNC 

machine please. 

SPACECRAFT Out on 1 there Mike. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, INCO has suggested that for 

tomorrows deployment we might change the LC modes to peat vice 
normal to reduce some blooming a little bit. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we'll take tha note and we'll do exactly 

that. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, the variable parameters on 

board the CRT is used again. 

SPACECRAFT Roger. 

CAPCOM And we're looking at a beautiful shot of the earth 
down here. 

SPACECRAFT You ought to see it from here. 

CAPCOM I wish I could. 

SPACECRAFT You will. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, we're about 25 seconds from 
LOS. We'll see you again over Santiago at 9 plus 44 and we've 
got a good shot of the satellite against the earth background. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Mike. We'll see you at Santiago and I'll go 
ahead and secure the VTR. 

CAPCOM Roger, we're losing the picture now. 

PAO This is Mission Control, Houston LOS Hawaii. 

There's some fairly spectacular video tape of SBS satellite 
deployment was played back by the crew. Satellite moved away at 
a fairly healthy rate. The force imparted by the springs and at 
the tail end of that VTR played back the satellite had descended 
below the earth horizon as far as the point of view of the 
camera, and we came a little bit more contrasty as opposed to 
against the black mass of space. We're 17 minutes now away from 
the next station at Santiago at which time we shall return. 
Mission Control, Houston, at 9:26.

station at Santiago, at which time we shall return. Mission 
Control, Houston at 9:26. 

£ A0 Tnis is Mission Control, Houston. One minute away 

from a playback of the SBS deployment television from Columbia 
Accompanying that second playback will be the audio from the 
preceding orbit Santiago pass in which the crew confirmed that 
the SBS had been deployed. An early part of that pass somehow 
was lost in a configuration problem as they say in the audio 
circuitry, so that missing tape will be played along with the 
video from SBS deploy. Sixty, or 12 seconds awav from starting 
of that playback. Mission Control, Houston. That completes the 
playback of the dumped video tape from SBS deploy and w.; are now 
in acquisition through Santiago. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston with you through Santiago for 5- 

1/2 minutes. Over. 

CAPCOM Roger Vance. We're with you now through Santiago 

tor 5-1/2 minutes. We're getting some spurious air to ground 2 
downlink. We'd like you to check your audio panels to see if 
anyone of them has air to ground 2 in the transmit/receive mode. 

CAPCOM And the teleprinter is okay as it is. 

SPACECRAFT Mike, we just checked the panels we're all hooked 
up to and air/ground 2 is in receive. 

CAPCOM Roger. We copy. Thank you much. 

SPACECRAFT And Houston, I have a report to make. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. Go ahead. 

SPACECRAFT Mike, on the port OMS pod, we've noticed that 
there are a couple of nicks in tile and you might like to notice 
those on the TV that you get back. Actually, they're like chips 
out of 2 tiles on the leading edge of the OMS pod They don't like 
too much to be concerned about.

activated the gas yet? 

SPACECRAFT Mike, this is Bill, I took a quick stab at it here 
and it appeared to be misbehaving and I dropped it to come to 
the LiOH cannister replacement, the systems I had, it may just 
be a screw loose in the operator here, I would hit the clear and 
I would get the A dash dash A, I would put in the 001, and I 
would get the A01A as I should, but than rather than dropping to 
a A01L, it would drop to a A01- and that was all I could ever get 
it do, so I quit fooling with it temporialy. 

CAPCOM Okay Bill, we'll check with you through IOS.

SPACECRAFT Roger, Michael, we copv. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, I hate to interrupt your 

meal, we're a little confused on the gas explanation that Bill 

gave, if he could step through that again, we'd appreciate it. 

SPACECRAFT Well, if you think you're confused, you ought to 

try me. No, Mike, I connected it up and as I read that decal and 
remember from training, it's fairly simple, unfortunately I'm not 
looking at it right now. You hit the clear button and the first 
thing you look at is A — A, and then you key in the relay that 
your talking about, in this case is 01, and you're immediately 
looking at A01A, and then that should switch, I thought to a 
A01L, if it is in fact latent which is should be, and then we 
send the right thing to get it to go hot, but all I can ever net 
is A01 dash. Does that make sense to you? 

CAPCOM Roger, it didn't make a lot of sense right now, 

we're looking at it. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we're going to go give it another try, and 

hopefully we won't spend two days fooling around with it. 

CAPCOM Roger, we copy. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, we're 30 seconds from LOS, 

we'll talk to you again through Guam at 10 plus 42. 

PAO This is Mission Control Houston. Loss of signal

evening meal. Shortly thereafter they'll begin pre-sleep 
activities. Next station in 19 minutes is Guam. Meanwhile, the 
attempts to activate the gei; away specia3 cannister have been 
stymied by an apparent problem with the sequencer keyboard. 
They're trying to sort out what kind of numbers were seen on

SPACECRAFT 



Okay, Mike and we figured out the gas problem. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t041j GMT: 315:22:37 11/11/82 PAGE 2 

CAPCOM Okay, we'd like to hear about it, tell us. 

SPACECRAFT Well you're just not going to believe this, all of 

our training and all of the simulating, and even our panel here 
indicates that the gas connects to the center connector on the 
PAM standard switch panel . And the other standard switch panel 
it has the the payload timing buffer and the VTR circuit breaker 
has just the standard I/O nomenclature, by that connector. Well, 
we tried both controllors and they did the same thing, behave 
like nothing was answering, so on a whim, I connected it to the 
other standard switch panel, and guess what happened? 

CAPCOM Yes, we were about ready to ask you if you were 

plugged into that wrong panel there, just because it's labeled 
gas . 

SPACECRAFT Well, you know that's what our training told us to 

do, we did that in a long sim and it worked. 

CAPCOM Roger, that figures. 

SPACECRAFT Anyway, we're now plugged into the ox I/O, that's 

over on the other standard switch panel on L12, and it worked, 

and qas was activated at 10:38 MET. 

CAPCOM Roger Bill, we copy that, well done. 

SPACECRAFT Houston, Columbia, 

CAPCOM Go ahead Columbia. 

SPACECRAFT Roger, did you get our IMU align lock earlier, 

from somebody? 

CAPCOM That's affirmative. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, let me talk a little bit about the COAS 
Calibration. It was fairly difficult and I think partly because 
we have a little bit of film on the window, and partly cause we 
had not such a bright star. But it was very hard to get the bias 
down to a reasonable number, the final thing we came up with was 
a bias of . . . 



r.m of tap.: 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t042j GMT 315:22:02 11/11/82 Page 1 



SPACECRAFT ...but it was very hard to get the bias down to a 

reasonable number. The final thing we came up with was a bias of 
.17. Update time was 10 hours, 15 minutes, but we used probably 
half of a night pass working on it. 

CAPCOM Okay. We copy that Vance. 

SPACECRAFT i recommend in the future always try to have a 

pretty bright star just because of the way the COAS is built. 

CAPCOM Roger . We copy. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, we concur with the bright 

star comment and we're looking at thf? data. 

SPACECRAFT Say again Dlease. 

SPACECRAFT Mike, will you say again please. 

CAPCOM Roger. Columbia, Houston. We concur with your 

comments on the COAS cal and we're looking over the data. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Mike, be advised those front windows are 

really clobbered. That the heavy salt spray, I think, from the 
Cape and then I had some debris from one of the burns over the 
Cape on my side also, so they're really pretty bad. 

CAPCOM Roger. We copy that. 

SPACECRAFT But really, the comment on that further, it 

depends a lot on lighting, if there's a reflection on the 
windows. It appears that there's just a thin film of salt and I 
don't think, for example, it would give us any problem in 
landing. 

CAPCOM Roger. We understand. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, we're 10 seconds to LOS. 

You should have gotten a weather message up on the teleprinter 
this pass and we'll talk to you over Santiago at 11 plus 20. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. See you there. 

SPACECRAFT And Mike, we did get that weather message. It 
came up very clear. 

CAPCOM Okay vloe. Thank you.

Roger, Bill. That's a good observation. 

And Mike, I've got a number for you if you want to 

Go ahead. 



SPACECRAFT Victor 070 396009 014 008339. That's the serial 

number on the tile that is directly opposite or next to the tile 
that is cracked. The tile that is cracked with the chip out of 
it does not have a serial number showing. That tile number that 
I read you read directly to the outboard of the tile that is 
chipped and just slightly to the inboard of the second tile 
that's chipped. So that's the location in the array where the 
two tile are chipped. 

CAPCOM Okav, we copy that. 

SPACECRAFT Mike, tell Woody the jalapenos are outstanding. 

CAPCOM Roger, we copy that. 

SPACECRAFT Mike, one other thing. Now we're winding down to 

the end of the day, we'd just like to say we really thought we 
had a super ride up and we'd like to thank everybody at the Cape 
that made it that way and everybody in Mission Control. It was a 
real fine experience for all of us. 

CAPCOM Roger, Vance. We really appreciate those words.

Our press conference that we had oriqinally scheduled for early 
Friday morning a boat. 2:50 a.m. at the end of this planning team 
shift is, we're comtomnl at i ng cancelling that because things are 
going vorv well and there is very little to say in that press 
conference. This will be the last announcement that wo are 
planning to, and if anyone has any real need to have that press 
conference be sure and let us know, otherwise, in about 10 
minutes or 15 minutes or so we will announce that that has been 
cancelled with, of course, the option always open, that should 
anything go amiss during the night, or anything very significant 
happen that we could re institute that if it became necessary. We 
would naturally announce over the commentary circuit here any 
problems which might arise that would require that. We also have 
an ind cation that there mav be a previously unscheduled video 
downlink in the early morning hours about on REV 15 over the Mi la 
statir.n between 3:17 a.m. Central Standard Time and 3:25 a.m. 
Central Standard Time or on REV 16 on the Mila Dass between 4:53 
a.m. Central Standard Time and 4:59 a.m. Central Standard ^imo. 
Mission specialist, Joe Allen, had asked before the crew went to 
bed for an opportunity to downlink some previously recorded 
video. We don't know vet what the content of that downlink would 
be, but those a^e two opportunities early in the crew's day for 
them to downlink that video and we may expect to see something at 
that particular time. Aqain, that would be on orbit 15 between 
3:17 a.m. central time and 3:25 a.m. central time or on REV 16 
between 4:53 a.m. central time and 4:50 central time. At .1.6 
hours 48 minutes mission elapsed time this is Mission Control 
Houston. Mission Control Houston 17 hours 18 minutes mission 
elapsed time. The regularly scheduled change of shift briefinq 
which was planned to occur at about ?:50 a.m. Central Standard 
Time has been cancelled. We have very little going on. Actually 
any changes in the status of the spacecraft. No problems at all 
really to report on. And barring any changes in that we are 
cancelling that change of shift briefing which had been scheduled 
for approximately 2:50 a.m. Central Standard Time. Should 
conditions warrant however, we would make any announcements 
necessary over the commentary loop here and advise any and all 
listening of whatever problems might occur. However, at the 
present time, given no Darticular need to hold that press 
conference, we are cancelling it at this time. At 17 hours 10 
minutes mission elapsed time this is Mission Control Houston. 
Mission Control Houston 13 hours 28 minutes mission elapsed 
time. Columbia is currently on orbit number 15 of the earth

remind you, that chanqe of shift press conference for the off- 
going flight control team, the planning team, was cancelled 
earlier this evening, very little going on in the way of problem 
tracking in Mission Control. The fliqht controllers here have 
primarily been involved in repairing the morning teleprinter 
message, looking at any necessary changes in the flight plan or 
the crew activitv plan although it appears that everything will 
go as laid out in the book. It was a very nominal day on 
Thursday, things went off on time and were completed as planned,

who have spent the hours of the crow's sleep period here. 
Handover schedule to be complete in about 20 or 30 minutes. 
Teleprinter messages that were worked on during the night have 
been sent up to the crew so that they'll be ready for them to see 
when they get up in about 25 minutes. We have a previously 
unscheduled television downlink set for orbit number 15 at 
mission elapsed time 20 hours 58 minutes over the Mila tracking 
station, that's about an hour and 20 minutes from now, that was 
as a result of a request by Mission Specialist Dr. Joe Allen for 
some time or opportunity to downlink some video that he had 
recorded, don't know at the present times what the contents of 
that downlink will be. Mission elapsed time 19 hours 33 minutes, 
this is Mission Control Houston.

time is 19 hours 57 minutes just about a minute away from 
acquisition of signal through the Indian Ocean station on orbit

PAO This is Mission Control Houston, at 20 hours 28 

minutes had loss of signal through Orroral Valley. Columbia on 
orbit number 15, just coming across the coast of Australia and 
will sweep up across the South Pacific, encounter its next ground 
station at Mila in approximately 30 minutes from now. That will 
be our next voice contact as the crew goes thru the crew activity 
plan and updates the CAP with telemetry data sent up thru the 
teleDrinter over night. Mission elapsed time is 20 hours 29 
minutes this Shuttle Mission Control. 

PAO This is Mission Control at Houston at 20 hours 59 

minutes acquisition of signal thru Mila for about eleven 
minutes . 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston with you thru Mila. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Houston, go ahead. 

CAPCOM Okay, I've got a note to oass you for the upcoming 

maneuver to IMU align attitude. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Rob, just hold a second there. Okav Bob, 

take it right in the CAP or should I make a note? 

CAPCOM You can probably take it right in the CAP, first 

of all a word of explanation. R4D heaters are not working and in 
order to keep that jet at a usable temnerature above 30 degrees 
you're going to have to fire them periodically so that we want to 
use this maneuver align an attitude to get some firing of R4D. 
So we want to amend the procedures as follows. Prior to this 
maneuver, deselect jets R2D and R3D. Use a normal jets DAP A for 
che maneuver to the alignment attitude, do youi alignment in DAP 
B, then after the alignment, go back to vernier DAP A. We're 
gonna leave R2D and R3D deselected for a while. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, let me just repeat it, we're going to 

deselect R2D and R3D, and we're going to do the maneuver to the 
attitude on normals DAP A, okay, are we going to the alignment on 
DAP Bravo, will that be Bravo vernier or Bravo normal? 

CAPCOM Standby, Bob. Okav Bob, that will be DAP B normal 

jots thru the alignment. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

CAPCOM And then after alignment is complete, go back to 

vernier DAP A, leaving R2D and R3D deselected.

when wt came in. 

SPACECRAFT Isn't it kind of early, huh? Looks like we all 

got a real good night's sleep last night. 

CAPCOM Well, I hope you did. It's going to be awful hard 

for you guys to top yesterday thouah. 

SPACECRAFT I know. I tell you that first ride, those first 8 

minutes are really something! 

CAPCOM Yeah, we suspected that from all the fire and 

stuff coming out of the backend of the vehicle. 

SPACECRAFT Yeah, sure. 

CAPCOM I want you to know that you guys have provided us 

with one of the most boring shift change briefings I have ever 
gone thru here.

This is Shuttle Mission Control at 21 hours 10 
minutes and they have brief loss of signal for about 3 and a half 
minutes while Columbia crosses the Atlantic and then it acquires 
again through the ground station at Dakar. During that pass at 
discussion between Columbia Pilot Bob Overmyer and CAPCOM nob 
Stewart having to do with the selection of reaction control 
system jets. Earlier in that pass the CAPCOM advised that crew 
that the change of shift debriefing with the off-going flight 
control team was extremely quick and is a product of the very few 
anomalies and the problems that have been experienced during the 
flight, mission Commander Vance Brand suggested they invite the 
participation of the simulations (or SIM SUP) as he said, which 
is a simulation supervisor who conducts the simulations that the 
flight crew and flight controllers use as practice in training 
devices prior to the mission in which are commonly, are rich with 
imaginary problems. We'll acquire signal again in 2 minutes 
through Dakar, this is Shuttle Mission Control.

CAPCOM Roger, cooy . Wish we could see it. 

PAO This is Shuttle Mission Control. Rob Overmyer 

remarking that the water dumo, as the vehicle crosses the 
terminator into sunlight has just occurred, is a spectacular 
sight. Tne water is jettisoned thru a T-shaped nozzle onboard 
the vehicle. T-shaped in order to neutralize the thrust to make 
sure that the projection that water doesn't provide anv thrust or 
any dynamic forces in the vehicle by shooting the water up that 
T-shaped nozzle in oDposite directions and thereby preventing anv 
thrust effects. And that nozzle is also heated to keep it from 
freezing up and as that dumps water, enters the environment 
around the vehicle it commonlv has a very spectacular effect in 
disoersing sunlight, Prompting Rob Overmyer' s remarks.

eyes before I qet the head movement with eyes fixed on a tarqet 
straight in front of me. And I think it should be apparent from 
the eve tracer, we have a qood record of what we've done onboard

we d like 311st to remind yo-i that when vou have a chance go ahead 
and pick up the fuel cell purge. Okay no problem Rob, but when 
you get a chance we did not see the fuel cell purge today and 1 
was just throwing in a reminder that when you get finished with 
what you're doing you might try to get that star i. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, what page is that listed on? 

«^ C 2? m ° kav i that was ° n tOD of 418 - Tt ' s kin<i of hidden

SPACECRAFT I see it up there, we'll get it. 

CAPCOM Okay. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, and Houston, we started the fuel cell purge. 

CAPCOM Okay, thank you. 

SPACECRAFT And I thank you for the reminder, appreciate it 
I went right over that page, I was too busy eating I guess. 

CAPCOM well, I hope vou enjoyed your mush this morning. 

SPACECRAFT It's just fine. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, we're 10 seconds LOS. See vou 

at Yarragadee at 2 4. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Rav.

We did position 4 before we did Dosition number 3 and he's doing 
position number 5 right now. 

CAPCOM Okay, Joe, we copy. 

SPACECRAFT Hey Rob, I misspoke. We did 5 before we did 4 and 
he's doing position 6 right now and as soon as we finish we're 
going to active the student experiments onboard. 

CAPCOM Okay, Joe, we copied. You did 5 before 4, 

currently doing 6. 



CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston, we appreciated your 

spurts of wake up music but we're now all awake.

SPACECRAFT Okay Houston, see you there. 

PAO This is Shuttle Mission Control mission elapsed 

time 23 hours 30 minutes. Columbia at 17th orbit of the Earth. 
Just had loss of signal throuqh the tracking stations in 
Australia. We'll reacquire aqain in just sl.ioht.ly more than 15 
minutes . 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston, with you through Hawaii 

for 5 minutes, standing by. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, hi Houston. And Rob, we're more or less 
standinq by here ourselves. Vance is getting ready to get on, 
never mind I hear it, I guess he's qettinq on the exerciser and I 
have just finished the heater G measurements also and Joe is deep 
into the sponge growth experiment at this point. 

CAPCOM Okay, Bill, sounds fine. We probably won't have 

anything for you until we read up the burn pad foe the OMS 
burn. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, and when will you do that? 

CAPCOM Well, we'll try to get it to you over the next 

stateside pass. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, that's Buckhorn and as I read this, at the 

start of that we're going to give you the (garble) strain gauge 
signal conditioning and at the end of it you'll tell us where to 
secure it, is that right? 

CAPCOM That's affirm. 

SPACECRAFT Bob, from the sound of it on the middeck, either 

Vance is running on the treadmill, or somebody's got the world's 
biggest coffee grinder going. 

CAPCOM Yes we copy Bill. By the way Bill, have you 

figured out how many miles you're going to put in while running 
on the treadmill today? 

SPACECRAFT No, unfortunately, my usual, way of measuring miles 

by how long I run probably won't work up here. I've tried to 
figure out someway to put a bigger load into my body and make it 
work. 

CAPCOM Well, according to Hank, on flight 4 he ran 

something like 8,000 miles. 

SPACECRAFT If he's going to count those miles, well hell, so 
am I. With those kind of miles, this will be my biggest week

can't find the reason. You miqht want to trv memory read on the 
C&W. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Well everything's looking okay. We're 
proceeding on right to the hurn. 



CAPCOM Okay, Vance. 

PAO Shuttle Mission Control at 1 day, 38 minutes and 

apparently just a stray signal to generate that mass master 
alarm. No indication anywhere in mission operations control room 
what might have prompted it, but CAPCOM instructed the crew to do 
a search, have it's computers do a search through the caution and 
warning memory in the general ourpose computer to determine what 
generated that alarm. Circumstances appear favorable for the 
burn to the left OMS engine. Ignition 6 minutes away to satisfy 
the development test obiective for a cold OMS engine restart. 
Mission elapsed time I day, 39 minutes. This is Shuttle Mission 
Control . 



CAPCOM Columbia, this Houston with you through Botswana 

for 5 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Rob. And we're all set up for the cold 

restart first burn of that A burn, 54 seconds to go. 



CAPCOM Roger, Vance. 

PAO Shuttle Mission Control. The burn 15 seconds away 

and it's roughly 5 minutes between the 2 burns. And this burn of 
course will occur in site of Botswana. We'll be in voice contact 
with the crew. 

PAO Shuttle Mission Control. We're about 2 minutes 

away from the second burn. These, of course, over Botswana where 
we have only a UHF air to ground and no down link telemetry, so 
the control center here in Houston is unable to monitor the 
status of the burns and the Delta V associated with them. 



CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. 30 second to LOS. Yarragadee's 

next at 01. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Bob. We got the first burn off well and 
we're 1. minute from the next. 



CAPCOM Copy Vance .

SPACECRAFT Meqative. We iust a master alarm, that's nP we 
had, and it went out. There was no other mossaqor; on the 
board. Somethinq must have just came in and out real fast 
miqht have been that cabin atmosphere that wo ' r e havinq

CAPCOM 



Okay . 

Houston, Columbia. 
Go ahead. 



SPACECRAFT This is Rill, I was stand inq in the aft fliqht deck 
area, well floatinq, so to speak, when it happened. And it 
seemed like correlated with that, there was a very short, 1 
second or so vent inq sound that sounded as thouqh it came from 
the vicinity of the 1 trash baqs here that are venting by the 
head here. Of course that's down the hatch and I quess any th inq 
down here would have sounded like it was from that vicinity. Rut 
that was simultaneous with the master alarm which only flashed 
momentarily and was qone . 



CAPCOM 



Okay, and did you do a memory read? 



SPACECRAFT That's how we discovered what it was, and the cabin 
atmosphere was about the only thinq that it looked like it could 
have been.

SPACECRAFT No, say again. What about R13? 

Did you copy a parameter number on that memory

CAPCOM Okay, qo ahead. 

SPACRCRAFT CAP's not to clear, when do you want us to start 
that maneuver for the rotation for the S-hand UHF antenna test 
pat tor n 1 

CAPCOM Okay, standby a second, we ' U chock it. 

SPACECRAFT Okav, while you're check inq that, the caution and 
warninq parameter that I looked uo is parameter 1 4, fourteen is 
0261 flow. 

CAPCOM Okay, that's what we expected here, and we'll qet 

back to you on it. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, as soon as I saw that, that kind of made a 
lot of sense. 

CAPCOM Roqer. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, in answer to your question, we'd 

like for you to be rotatinq just before Mi la AOS. AOS is 
scheduled for zero 1 hours and 46 minutes and 56 seconds. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, it's 1:46:56 we must start, the 20 sliqhtly 
before that, is that riqht, adam 20? 

CAPCOM That's affirmative. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. 

SPACECRAFT Al riqht. 

CAPCOM Roqer, in order for this S-band UHF antenna pattern 

to work, we will need for you to start that test from the minus 
ZLV attitude. So you'll have to go back to that attitude now to 
get set up. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. And can you show me in the CAP where that 
minus ZLV stowage (garble) 



CAPCOM 



Okay, it's bottom of page 4-20. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t063j GMT 316:13:20 11/12/82 PAGE 3 



SPACECRAFT Okay, well we should be tracking on that maneuver 
that we were before, and qot everything set up ready for the go 
to the rotate as soon as we get over the states at the end of 
this pass, your call. 

CAPCOM Okay, Columbia, we'd like for you to start rotation 

just prior to Mila, oh about 30 seconds before like we talked 
about before. And Dob, if you could, remember when you... 



END OF TAPE 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t064i GMT 316:13:52 11/12/82 PAGE 1 

CAPCOM Okay, Columbia. We'd like for you to start the 

rotation just prior to Mila about 30 seconds before like we 
talked about before. And Rob, if you could remember when you 
went out of the ZLV attitude, we'd like to know. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. That must have just been happening about a 

minute before we came up on after we left you at Botswana. Did 
an Item 19 a second time and that started the maneuver wrong 
there . 

CAPCOM Okay. So you did not go back to the ZLV? 

SPACECRAFT After the OMS burn, we went through the maneuver 

as specified on 1-20 at the bottom there. 

CAPCOM Okay. 

SPACECRAFT We were in that maneuver and when I was loading 

the present body vector set up for the rotation, I mistakenly 
(narble) . 

PAO Had loss of signal through Hawaii. Will reacquire 

again in about a minute and 1/2 through the Ruckhorn station. 
The S-band uhf antenna check is being performed over those 
stations in Hawaii in order to better understand the pattern and 
the raaiation qualities of those communications media when the 
Orbiter is in a variety of different attitudes, and the 
discussion about the length of time that the Orbiter has been in 
the nose sun, or nose down attitude is in response to some 
concerns by the pay load's officer. Havinq to do with the thermal 
conditions of the ANIK spacecraft in the payload bay, assuring 
that it isn't overheated by sun radiation while it's in that nose 
sun attitude. We'll have voice contact again momentarily. 
Mission Elapse. 1 Time, 1 day, 1 hour, 36 minutes. This is Shuttle 
Mission Control. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, we've got vou again through 

Ruckhorn for R minutes and I missed the last part of your 
conversation on going back to ZLV Rob. T copied that you did 
initiate maneuver and that then vou started setting up for the S- 
band tests, and then we lost you. 

SPACECRAFT (garble) In setting up for S-band teat, I did the 

Item 14, mistakenly did an Item 19 which I didn't appreciate it, 
but that Item 19 I believe took us out of the 0 to vertical. 

CAPCOM Okay. Fine. So that would have boon shortly 

after finishing the burns up there at Botswana, so just a few 
minutes after that is when all this happened. 

SPACECRAFT That's affirm. We did got that maneuver star ted 

exactly as scheduled on 1-20 right after the burn, but in setting 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t064j GMT 316:13:52 11/12/82 PAGE 2 



up for this maneuver about now, let's say about 1:10, so we're 
setting up for that Item 19 with the wrong body vector in there. 

CAPCOM Okay Bob. Well, thanks a lot. Sorry to bother 

you on it, but we just needed to document how much time we've 
been out of attitude. 

SPACECRAFT It couldn't have been more than 2 or 3 minutes at 

the most. 

CAPCOM Okay. 

SPACECRAFT That was all the night pass there, so it didn't 
hurt hour PAMs I don't think. 

CAPCOM Okay. 

PAO Shuttle Mission Control. Overmyer stating that 

the vehicle was in darkness all the time it was out of attitude 
and, therefore, alleviating any concern that the ANIK pavload may 
have not received some undesirable heating during that period. 
Still in voice contact in the oass across the Continental United 
States. We'll have a voice contact for another 6 minutes. This 
is Shuttle Mission Control at 1 day, 1 hour, 39 minutes. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. A request GNC spec 1 for 

variable parameters. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. You got it.

SPACECRAFT Okay, you want us rotating by the time we get 

there though, right? 

CAPCOM Affirmative. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we're going to take the S-band antennas 

upper left and FM antennas upper, right now and we're going to 
start the rotation. 

CAPCOM Okay. You're go. 

SPACECRAFT Houston, Columbia.

antenna is in upper and we will, (garble) kind of panel command 
or are you going to handle that. 

CAPCOM That's all we need you to do right now. 

SPACECRAFT Houston, Columbia. Out of curiosity, how are you 

reading us? 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. Ray again. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t065j GMT 316:14:00 11/12/82 PAGE 2 

SPACECRAFT Just wondered how you're reading us while we're 

doing this roll. 

CAPCOM Okay, we read you 5 by right now. We may be going 

through a keyhole here in about 10 seconds. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. We're out of the keyhole and 

we have you through Mila for another 6 1/2 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, really an interesting affect up here. A 

little bit like a slow roll on a KC 135 if anybody's ever done 
that. 

CAPCOM Sounds like fun. If you like that sort of thing. 

SPACECRAFT I don't know anybody that would. 

CAPCOM Well, some people like a whole handfull of 

throttles and stuff like that. 

SPACECRAFT Right. 

SPACECRAFT Roy, it's kind of interesting from here. You can 

see jetties (garble) across the coast by just looking at the 
contrails. 

CAPCOM Copy. 

SPACECRAFT Tell everybody at the Capo to smile, we're taking 

their picture. 

CAPCOM Okay, nill. They're probably listening to us down 

there. 

SPACECRAFT And receive at Cape, Roy. 

CAPCOM Okay. And I guess they're reporting a front in 

the vicinity of the Cape. Apparently the weather looks pretty 
good to you thouqh right now. 

SPACECRAFT Yes, it looks like it would be good for launching 

today, too. 

CAPCOM Wish we had another one ready to <jo . 

SPACECRAFT There are clouds scattered across Florida, though. 

CAPCOM Okay.

PAO This is Shuttle Mission Control. Mission Elapsed 

Time, 1 day, 1 hour, 57 minutes. Columbia on its 19th orbit of 
the Earth. Will acquire signal again in about 7 minutes through 
Ascension Island. The 2 OMS burns occurred out of sight of any 
ground tracking station, although we had voice contact through 
Botswana and subsequently thorugh Yarragadee. Tracking occurred 
over Hawaii and over the Continental United States and based on a 
product of that bracking, projected new orbital parameters, 
following those OMS burns are an apogee of 160.8 nautical miles 
and a periqee of 159.1 nautical miles. Shuttle Mission 
Control. We're about 30 seconds away from acquisiton of signal, 
again. Mission Elapsed Time, 1 day, 2 hours, 4 minutes. Orbital 
parameter is now computed at apogee of 161.1 nautical miles, 
perigee 160.4 nautial miles. Velocitv is 25,367 feet per 
second. 25,367 feet per second velocity. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Houston. Loud and clear. 

CAPCOM Roger, and you're 5 by. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. I have a small note for you on 

the COAS cal. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. We're ready to copy. 

CAPCOM Roqer. Nothing to copy really. Just a reminder 

to check dap and pulse mode for the COAS and also I'd like to 
pass on the FIDO reports you're in a 160.5 by 160.2 orbit. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Sounds pretty close to 160. (garble) 

CAPCOM Affirmative. 

SPACECRAFT Just a note, wo did get out of pulse with the 
alignment yesterday, but it was more out of desperation than 
anything else. 

CAPCOM Okay. Understand Vance. 

SPACECRAFT Or, exasperation is a better word for it. 

CAPCOM Well, we hope it goes a little better today and we 

sent some notes up for you in the mission summary reqarding how 
much effort that's spent on it though. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

SPACECRAFT Roy, how do you copy, Joe? 



CAPCOM 



You're loud and clear Joe.

tests, we qot some rather interesting TV I think which we will be 
happy to dump down to you if there's an opportunity between now 
and when we get tied up with an AN I K deploy. I've leave it up to 
you as to whether you have a time available or not. 

CAPCOM Okay. I'll check it right quick and get back to

For example, it might be easier to (garble) picking something up 
in darkness. 

CAPCOM Okay, Vance. Stand by just a second. I'll let 

you know. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. Vance, we don't think that

minutes . 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Houston. 

SPACECRAFT Houston, this is Columbia, do you read? 

CAPCOM Yeah, Columbia, got you loud and clear, go ahead, 

Joe . 

SPACECRAFT Okay, I'm watching Bob and Vance to this 
calibration, and looking out the back window, we're looking down 
on (garble) of lightning displays, the land mass we're going 
over. And a note for Owen as nob moves the vehicle to position a 
COAS, we get little bursts of light from the vernier jets. And 
just after they fired there's a very definite glow on the 
upstream side of the verticle stabilizer and that lasts for a few 
seconds, then dies off gradually. 

CAPCOM Okay, Joe, we copy that. Is there any chance you 

might get a photograph of it later on? 

SPACECRAFT We're trying to, Bob. It's visible with the naked 
eye, and not all that well adapted. It is more pronounced on the 
upstream side, as they say, than downstream. I'm not sure I can 
even see it on the downstream side, but is very definitely there 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t068j GMT 316:14:45 11/12/82 PAGE 2 



and it follows thruster firing. And Rob I go a few words for you 
about this align. 

CAPCOM Okay, c.o ahead. 

SPACECRAFT Star peacock was very very dim all the way through 
that night pass for me. There were other stars that were 
brighter, I wish we had one of those, the peacock was just very 
very dim, and the radical, between the radical peacock being dim, 
the radical being (garble) low enough and this wondow being so 
hazy still, I was able to get a very good. We got one was .37, I 
didn't like that one, T was a little closer on it. The next time 
it was .45, so we accepted that, but those are -just as close as 
we can get the right now, and then the star is set at this time. 

CAPCOM Okay, Bob, we copy that. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston, we're 40 seconds to LOS 

at Guam, Hawaii will be next at 3 0 2. We're going to have to rlo 
a couple of commands to configure this sight, prior to your TV 
dump, we're really looking forward to it. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, you bet ya . 

PAO Mission Control, Houston, LOS Guam. During the 

Guam pass, Joe Allen came on to mention that, looking aft out of 
the flight deck rear windows, he could see a glow from the 
vernier jets after they fired for a few seconds, after each 
firing, on the upstream side of the vertical fin, and he might 
attempt to photograph this phenomenon.

SPACECRAFT Roger, Bob, I'm going to start the VTR now. 

CAPCOM Hold off a second, Joe, let us give you a call on 

that while the sight's being reconfigured. In the meantime, if 
you could give me a GNC spec 1 on one of the CRTs. 

CAPCOM Okay, Joe, sight's configured, 

SPACECRAFT Roger, on the way. 

CAPCOM Okay, and sight's configured, you can start the 
dump. 

SPACECRAFT We're having a hard time getting Pill back to 

work. Fie* 11 get back shortly, and we'll show you the view out 
the, the rear window here, as we do the S-band test. 

CAPCOM Joe, does this have anything to do with Bill's 

grasping things with his feet yesterday? 

SPACECRAFT Say it again, Bob. 

CAPCOM Does this peanut feeding exercise have anything to 

do with the way he was using his feet yosterday? 

SPACECRAFT Right, that's his reward for the successful deploy 
yesterday. 

Music 

SPACECRAFT Can you still feci Robert? 

CAPCOM Say again, Joe. 

SPACECRAFT Are you still getting TV.

CAPCOM Tucker Pierce says that what you are doing is like 

a snap roll in 135. 

SPACECRAFT Wait till he puts in the rudder, you're not qoing 
to believe it.

Hawaii. A minute and 10 seconds from reacquisition through 
Buckhorn in California. Television dump there from the previous 
orbit over Florida, Cuba, Bahamas on orbit 18 during which time 
the spacecraft was doing S-band antenna test calling for fairly 
rapid roll motions to the spacecraft which provided some fairly 
spectacular television out the rear flight deck window of the 
tail group and the earth belcw and the changing shadows of 
rotating spacecraft. But the head of that TV pass had a small 
sequence of Bill Lenoir catching peanuts in his mouth being 
tossed by a crew man out of sight. Should be an acquisition here 
in about 10 seconds at Buckhorn. Mission Control, Houston,

Okay, copy, thank you. 



CAPCOM Roger, and when you got a chance we'd like you to 

clear the star table. That'll allow us to watch the alignment 
through the deploy. 



SPACECRAFT Thurst. 



SPACECRAFT And Brian, I have a question for you. 
CAPCOM Go ahead. 



CAPCOM Roger, Columbia, go ahead. 

SPACECRAFT Brian, under the commander's column 4-26, where it 
represents an interconnect return, our understanding this morning 
was we were going to go through all the interconnects and 
everything this, or all the burns and everything with it 
interconnected as you've got it right now, right OMS to RCS. Is 
that affirm? 



CAPCOM Standby. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, on your interconnect return, 

we'd like you to go to do the i .ocedure, interconnect return as 
spelled out in the CAP. The other note that you had this morning 
was only for the recirc burns. 



SPACECRAFT So, right now you want us to take it off 
interconnect, is that right? 

CAPCOM That's affirmative. 



SPACECRAFT (garble) thank you. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, 25 seconds to go till LOS, and 

at Hawaii, I'd like to read up a note to Joe and Bill on the PAM 
index selonoid extender inhibit command data. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Brian, we'll be standby for that.

SPACECRAFT And Brian, camera Charley's not the spinning cap. 

CAPCOM Roger. We see the TV. It looks qood . 

SPACECRAFT Okay Brian. We're 13 inutes away and we don't 
have a single anomaly to report. It looks beautiful to us here. 

CAPCOM Roger Joe. It looks good to us so far and we're 

seeing pretty good TV from the interior now as well. 

SPACECRAFT What can we say? 

SPACECRAFT And Brian, well try to look out aft over the top of 
th3 SBS sunshield. We can't see the sunshield from ANIK but you 
can, every now and then, see the oblong side of the OMNI coming 
over top of it. 

CAPCOM Roger that: Bill.

SPACECRAFT Brian, those memory addressers work like a piece of 
cake. We hooked them up and they changed from all balls to the 
numbers that you indicated plus some other bits that also 
changed. I think they were probably the restraints. 

CAPCOM Okay. That sounds ^ood Bill. And, we caught that 

also on our data before LOS at Guam. 

SPACECRAFT Brian, we don't have the map out right now. How 
close to the Islands are we ? 

CAPCOM Roqer, you should be right over. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we'll look. Real pretty hues yesterday. 
Yeah, tell Brian we're just a little bit south of the islands 
right now and (garble) stands out perfect and (garble) is coming 
in just clear as a bell. Beautiful scene. 

CAPCOM Roger. Sounds good. 

SPACECRAFT Standby for internal power. We can see a runway at 
Oahu right now. 



SPACECRAFT (garble) got a little cloud over it though, 
(garble) has it's usual, no clouds at all there Brian. 

CAPCOM Roger that. 

SPACECRAFT Oh, we're looking right down (garble) on the big 
island. 

SPACECRAFT Oh Brian. Those islands look just like they do on 
the map. 

CAPCOM Well, that's comforting to know Bob. 

SPACECRAFT Somebody did some good work. Bob thinks it's a 
good simulation of an atlas. And Brian, you should show the 
spacecraft on internal power now. 

CAPCOM Roger. We saw that.

SPACECRAFT Okay, look at it, then we'll give you the numbers, 
we're going to try to record this on film. 



CAPCOM 



Okay, Joe. 



SPACECRAFT Actually, Brian, we have enough time, I'll give you 
the numbers in the same order Bill did, as follows: negative 03, 
negative 10, negative 04, and they're all preceeded by a decimal 
point. And the rates are .000, negative .001, negative .003,

SPACECRAFT Okay Brian, and we've got some tape of the deploy 
if you'd like us to play it back at an opportunity later? 

CAPCOM Roger, if you can get it ready by Hawaii, we'd like 

to hear that. 

SPACECRAFT If you listen, it's ready now, but we'll wait for 
Hawai i . 

CAPCOM Roger, Hawaii looks best to us. 

SPACECRAFT Meet you in Hawaii. 

SPACECRAFT And Brian, what time is AOS Hawaii, and how long is

SPACECRAFT Hello, Brian. 

CAPCOM Roger, read you loud and clear, and I've got 2 or 3 

notes for you if you're ready to copy? 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Brian. 

SPACECRAFT Go ahead, Brian, where are we supposed to put these 
notes . 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t078j GMT 316:20:43 11/12/82 PAGE 2 
SPACECRAFT Go ahead Brian. 

CAPCOM Roger, there are a couple of notes for you. First 

of all, on the oxygen interaction experiment on the top of DFI , 
we're interested in how the capton strip retainer springs handled 
the flight so far. And so before you activate the experiment at 
about 10 hours, we'd like you to get a TV picture, as good a 
close up as you can of that experiment. We'd like to see whether 
any of the individual material strips work themselves loose. We 
do not need a dump or any live TV of this, this is strictly for 
postf light . 

SPACECRAFT Okay Brian, we copy that, you sav you're interested 
in retainer springs? 

CAPCOM That's affirmative and if you can get some closeups 

with camera B or C of the material strips themselves, we're 
interested in whether or not any of them have worked loose and 
are flapping in the breeze, so to speak. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we understand that. What's the other note? 

CAPCOM Okay, we're interested in whether you had a chance 

so far, to get any photographs as per page 3-7 of the photo TV 
checklist of the window debris on the front windows? 

SPACECRAFT Brian, I've taken some, standard set across all 6 
windows on the front, they're all at one triangle, I'll want to 
get a glancing sun angle, and try and get a few more. 

CAPCOM Roger, that, Joe, and 

SPACECRAFT Yet. 

CAPCOM Okay, we kind of expected that from his training 
pref light. 



SPACECRAFT 



I can't right yet, don't give up on me. 



CAPCOM Roger, and last note is from our ECOM, we'd like 

you to dump tank to 

SPACECRAFT Say again, Brian. 

CAPCOM Roger, you're water dump tonight, we'd like you to 

dump B to 50 percent. 



SPACECRAFT Okay, 50 percent, 5 0. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t079j GMT 316:21:10 11/12/82 PAGE 1 
SPACECRAFT Okay. 50 percent, 50. 

CAPCOM That's affirmative. And a couple of notes for the 

panels on the right side. For Panel Rl, in order to prevent the 
FSS line from freezing, we'd like you to shut off the A and B 
heaters for both the oxygen tank 3 and hydrogen tank 3. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Brian. I iust did that. Oxygen tank 3 

heaters all went to off and hydrogen tank 3 heaters are off. Is 
that what you want? 

CAPCOM That's affirmative. On Panel Rl cryo systems. 

SPACECRAFT That's complete. 

CAPCOM Roger, and to prevent master alarms the rest of 

the day and tonight, we'd like you to inhibit caution and warning 

channels 14 and 54 for nitrogen and oxygen flow on Panel R13. 

SPACECRAFT Roger that. We copy. 14 and 54. 

CAPCOM Roger Joe, and we will reenable those for entry. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Very good. And Brian, we've got a request 
to make of INCO. We'll be standing by at Hawaii. As soon as he 
has his television recording up, he should give us a call and we 
will start the dump immediately so that they're not get in the 
whatever keyhole he must be working with down there. I'd say we 
have at least 3 good minutes, maybe a little more. 

CAPCOM Roger that. 

SPACECRAFT Brian, if that's all of your things we have one. 

CAPCOM Roger. I had one more geieral one. We're working 

up an R4D jet firing a little later for you and we'll get the 
details and a time for you. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. We'll expect it and with our morning 

report, if you could give us a rough idea of how our consumables 
are going, we'd appreciate it. 



CAPCOM And Vance, no concern on consumables. Prop and 

ecom consumables look good right now. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Thank you. 

SPACECRAFT Brian, this is Joe again. If you have no other 

urgent notes, I have a footnote item to give you if you are ready 
for that. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t079j GMT 316:21:10 11/12/82 PAGE 2 



CAPCOM Roger Joe. Ready to copy. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. In regards to the sponge growth experiment, 
belongs to Aaron Gillette from Winterhaven, Florida, due to an 
oversight on my part, I started it a little bit late and the time 
got away from me and I didn't stop it as he called for but I 
think we can salvage the protocol that he wants to follow. Let 
me just describe what I have done. I have started run number 2 
at 1 day, 4 hours, 29 minutes and I finished at 1 day, 5 hours, 
and 29 minutes. I started run 1 at 1 day, 0 hours, 29 minutes 
and will stop that 24 hours later. However, I'd like a reminder 
perhaps on the teleprinter or something to me to stop it at that 
time. Run number 3 was started also at 4 hours and 29 minutes, 
that's 1 day, 4 hours, and 29 minutes and I found only 2 sets of 
packages for run number 3. If there should have been 3, then 
perhaps one of them is floating around loose here and we'll 
discover it later. I'd be interested in a report on that when 
you have time tomorrow. 

CAPCOM Roger Joe. We'll get you a reminder on the 

teleprinter for that and we'll take a look at this number 3 pack 
for you. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, and the reason I go into such detail, if 

there was a difference between the samples in the sets 1, 2, and 
3, it may be that you will want to revise the time tables as to 
when I start and stop the next run. 

CAPCOM Roger. Copy and we have 10 seconds to LOS. We'll 

see you at Guam at 9:17. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. We'll see you there. Thank you.

a successful burn, perigee kick motor burn, and the separation of 
the perigee kick motor from the satellite has been confirmed, 

PAO This is Mission Control, Houston, Columbia is now 

in acquisiton at the Guam station. 

CAPCOM Houston, Columbia with you over Guam for a minute 

and a half, 

SPACECRAFT Roger. 

CAPCOM And I've got a note for you on the R4D hot fire. 

SPACECRAFT Go ahead. 

CAPCOM Roger, as soon as you can we'd like you to do the 

R4D hot fire and give us the TIG so we can do our computations of 
temperature down here before you go to sleep tonight. Procedure 
will be to configure the DAP rotation axcel, axcel, axcel, DAP A 
manual normal, low Z, and then using the forward RHC , give us a 2 
second left roll to fire the R4D jet. Soon as possible after 
that, in order to avoid being out of attitude, like you to return 
to the normal DAP configuration, and then when in attitude, back 
to vernier control. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Brian, I understand you want the R4D hot fires 
to be following slick DAP, rotation excel, excel, excel, A man 
normal, low 7,, and using the RHC, use 2 second left roll, and 
that'll fire the R4D, and then immediately give it back A auto 
and then give it back to vernier till they settle out. 

CAPCOM That a good readback, Rob. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, words from the ANIK folks, 

the ANIK spacecraft has been acquired over Guam, right where they 
expected to see it. They hope to he getting spacecraft data in 
the next hour. And the position of the spacecraft implies the 
nominal PKM and spacecraft separation. 

SPACECRAFT Outstanding, very good news. 

SPACECRAFT That's great, and I'll be anxious to hear more. 
Before we loose you, I understand we can start that hot fire 
anytime, right? 

CAPCOM That's affirmative. 



SPACECRAFT Brian, to quote that famous Joe Allen, we haul, and 
we deliver.

CAPCOM Roger. Stand by. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, didn't think we're (garble) any all day and 

I was just curious. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. In regards to the water 

question. We launched with 90 percent in tank C and 6 r > Dercent 
in D and after launch the tanks equalized out to about 78 percent 
in each, and they've been filling since then. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, I thought we saw them, I guess we saw 1 in 

90 yesterday, and assumed both of them were <>0, right? Just 
cur ious . 



CAPCOM Roger, that. 

SPACECRAFT And Houston, it got a little cool last night when 

were sleeping, so we think we'll, with your permission, move the 
cabin temp controller valve to perhaps 2/3 cooler or 1/3 cool. 

CAPCOM Roger, wo concur with that, Vance. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, we're 30 seconds to go, and 

we're looking at a beautiful picture of the spacecraft against 
the ocean . 

SPACECRAFT Right, we're watching on the monitor to, although 

we got kind of a scratchy black and white. We wouldn't trade 
places. We just wanted to share that with you tonight, Brian. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t08lj GMT 316:21:46 11/1.2/82 PAGE 2 

CAPCOM Roger, that's appreciated, thank you very much. 

And next AOS will be Santiago at 9 + 53. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

CAPCOM Flight controller power off, please. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

PAO This is Mission Control, Houston. Loss of signal 

at Hawaii now, 19 minutes away from r eacqu i s i t ion at Santiago, 
Chile. Video tape playback onboard Columbia of the deployment of 
ANIK on the previous orbit, accompanied by the music from motion 
picture 2001, which in turn had been borrowed from a tone poem by 
Rikard Strous, thus (garble). We'll return in 18 minutes at 
Santiago. Crew preparing now for their preslcep activity after 
their evening meal, most of the day's work having been 
completed. At 9 hours, 34 minutes, on the second day of STS-5,

PAO This is Mission Control, Houston. We have 

acquisition at Santiago, Chile. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, with you at Santiago for 6 

minutes . 

SPACECRAFT Roger, Brian. How do you read us? We're all down 
here on the mid deck. 

CAPCOM Roger, Bob. I read you loud and clear. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Okay, Brian. I did complete the TV taping 
of the oxygen interaction validation status as of now prior to 
turning it on on your call later. 

CAPCOM Roger. 

SPACECRAFT Brian, got a question for you. 

CAPCOM Roger, go ahead. 

SPACECRAFT Heard the SRBs that made it down were sited. Did 
they make like submarines this time or did we get them back? 

CAPCOM Stand by. 

CAPCOM And Columbia on your question on SRBs, at last 

report both SRBs were under tow. They had a small problem with 
following seas making it a little slower for them. They had to 
periodically feel the SRBs with air, but they are under tow. 

SPACECRAFT Outstanding. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, we need you to have the 3 

degree deadband called for on DAP B5 if you can check your DAP 
mode . 

SPACECRAFT Okay, I'll go up and do that, Brian. I got time 

here. And we'll take the hit on that one and you want DAP B5? 

CAPCOM That's affirmative. And Columbia, while you're 

down there, we'd like to go over the tag-up items with you. 

SPACECRAFT We're listening but we may not be able to write. 
Go ahead. 

CAPCOM Roger. The ANIK deploy was a real spectacular 

deploy today, and everyone down here had a lot of smiles. 

SPACECRAFT We were smiling up here too babe. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t082j GMT 316:21:53 11/12/82 PAGE 

CAPCOM As a matter of fact, most of us will be drinking 

beers at the Gilruth Center in about an hour and we'll be 
toasting you folks, 

SPACECRAFT Well, after the toast save some for us. 
CAPCOM will do. 

SPACECRAFT We keep searchinq and searching and we can't find 
any. We'd like to toast SBS and TELESTAT of Canada too. 

CAPCOM Roger, copy that Vance and if you got a few 

seconds we were wondering how your medical DSOs went todav. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, slowly as we anticipated. Both Joe and I 
got off the EOG portion as we did report earlier and that went 
without a hitch accept it took about twice as long as had been 
scheduled. The acceleration sensing we never tried because wr> 
knew it was going to take longer than we had and we were already 
behind and the kenesthetic repeatability also got skipped 
although we may get a chance to catch that yet tonight. 

CAPCOM Roger, copy that Bill. Roughly the flight plan 

for tomorrow, we're looking for another COAS cal in the forward 
station with the morning IMU aligned. And you should use riqile 
or serious as the star. 

SPACECRAFT Super idea. 

CAPCOM And we're still looking at the aft COAS cal and 

we 11 be asking for a short count also tomorrow at Yarraqadee's 
pass on both UHF channels. 

SPACECRAFT (garble) And we'll be ge tinq the roll pitch 

angles for, initial angles for the star, I understand {garble). 

CAPCOM Roger. Only anomallies to talk to you about 

tonight, the R4D heater, the control temp with the thrusfer 
firings, working on a plan to use the thermal test attitudes, and 
there s been a loss of the ru down here on MCC. We don't need 
any action on your part on that. 

SPACECRAFT You better not. 

CAPCOM And we have 20 seconds till LOS. We'll see you at 

Ascension at 10 plus 07 and we'll be sending up a staLe vector 
good message on the TPR sometime later after sleep and we'll have 
another message for you on the heater, R4D heater response for 
caution and warning a little later. 



SPACECRAFT Okay, Brian. Did you see ECOMS line. I'm 
starting the fuel cell purge right now. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t083j GMT 316:22:17 11/12/82 PAGE 1 



CAPCOM And we have 20 seconds till LOS, we'll see you 

Ascension at 10 + 07, and we'll be sending up a state vector good 
message on the TPR sometime later after sleep, and we'll have 
another message on the heater R4D heater response for caution and 
warning later. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Brian, (garble) Z comm lines, I'm starting 
the fuel cell purge right now. 

CAPCOM Roger, that. 

PAO This is Mission Control, Houston, 50 seconds away 

from predicted acquisition of Ascension Island on orbit 23. This 
likely will be the last conversation of the evening before the 
crew of Columbia settles down for sleep period. We'll stand by 
for this final exchange. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston with you at Ascension for 6 

minutes . 

SPACECRAFT Okay Brian, we're hearing you loud and clear. 

CAPCOM Roger, and Vance, concerning the temperature in 

the cabin tonight, all other things being equal because of the 
attitudes today, we expect that it would be even cooler tonight 
in there and we would recommend 4 warm on the system if needed. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, glad to hear that, we really didn't notice 

it was so cold at bedtime, but about 2 or 3 hours later without 
moving around, we were really freezing. 

CAPCOM Roger, that, Vance. Feel free to use that system 

any way you want to keep yourselves the riqht temperature. 

SPACECRAFT Righto, thanks. 

SPACECRAFT And Brian, do I have your go to activate the 
oxygen interaction validation? 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, you're go for the oxygen 

interaction validation. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, I'll go do it, easier to do than to talk 
about it. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Brian, it is on the aft main B, aft payload 
B. 

CAPCOM Roger, and we see the amps here, we saw that 
change. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t083j GMT 3] 6: 22: 17 11/12/82 PAGE 



CAPCOM And the signature temperature here shows that all 

the heaters are working. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, very good . 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, follow up on the R4D jet 

heat system toniqht. 

SPACECRAFT Go ahead. 

CAPCOM Roger, we don't expect one, but should you get an 

R4D leak message during the night, go ahead and check for 
quantity divergents. If there's no divorgents, leave the 
manifold open. If you do see a divergents, go ahead and close 
the manifold. 

SPACECRAFT Copy. 

SPACECRAFT Houston, Columbia. 

CAPCOM Roger, go ahead Columbia. 

SPACECRAFT (garble) spec 68 is lying to me, other than the 2 

bad ones, it looks like the dump is complete, you agree? I mean 
not the dump, the fuel cell purge is complete. 

CAPCOM And Bob, yes it is complete. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, 30 seconds to LOS, we'll see 

you at Guam at 10 + 50. 

SPACECRAFT (garble) 

PAO This is Mission Control, Houston. Loss of signal 

at Ascension Island, 35 minutes away from r eacqu i s i t ion at Guam, 
which will likely be the final pass of the day. Crew settles in 
after fairly long day of preparation for deploying the ANIK 
satellite, which went according to the text book and the 
checklist. At 10 hours, 15 minutes into day 2 of STS-5 , Mission 
Control, Houston.

PAO At 10 hours 15 minutes into Day 2 of STS-5, 

Mission Control, Houston. 

PAO Shuttle Control Houston, we've acquired signal 

over Guam, 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, with you for 6 minutes over 

Guam. 

SPACECRAFT Hello Houston, this is Columbia. How do you road 

us, over. 

CAPCOM Roger, loud and clear. 

SPACECRAFT Just out of curiosity, how do you read the mid 

deck speaker? 

CAPCOM Roger, it's loud and a little bit hollow. Just 

like the nominal. 

SPACECRAFT Well, just like our heads. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, we got a couple of notes for you. 

We recommend an item 16 on Spec 62 to inhibit the DECOM 3 FDA 
when you've got a chance. 

SPACECRAFT Item 16 (garble). Roger. Brian, I undortand 

that. Thanks for reminding us. How does the (garble) engine 
look to you now? 

CAPCOM Roger, it looks great to us Bob. 

SPAC1 CRAFT Okay. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, in reference to the sponge 

experiment for Joe, you're right. There should have been 3 
sponge packets in the pocket for run 3. You might want to look 
in the rest of that locker to see if it was misfiled in the wrong 
pocket. If you can't find it, don't worry. I've been advised 
that it's not dangerous. 



SPACECRAFT Okay, Brian. Thank you. We'll look all around 
and be extra careful and if the mixture's exactly the same as in 
sets 4, 5 and 6, I can just use the same procedures and continue- 
on so I won't lose the sample when and if I find it. 

CAPCOM That's firm. If you do find it, we'd like you to 

go ahead and activate it, record the time and just leave it on 
the rest of the mission. 



SPACECRAFT Okay, very good. Thank you.

really gave it a beautiful start in lifo and tho TV coverage of 
the deploy wan super. 



SPACECRAFT 



Thank you Brian, appreciate it. 



CAPCOM And tho orbit looks qood on tho ANIK. We still 

don't have confirmation of tho telemetry yet, hut. everything 
looks good so far on that spacecraft. And the ascent entry team 
will be with you tomorrow at 1900 at Orroral for your wake up and 
you can sleep well tonight. Your planning team is awake. 

5PACRCRAFT That's what wo were afraid of. Anyway, Brian, I 

think we have a picture of the planning team that war' sent up 
aboard our cap and we'll place it on the wall. 

CAPCOM Roger that. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. Mow do you road? 

SPACRCRAFT You're loud and clear. 

CAPCOM Okay, you got the planning team with you now and 

trust you'll sleep well this evening. We ' vf got an official name 
now. We're called the gray team so we'll be rofprrod to as the 
gray team come henceforth.

things have gone very well through the night, no new problems 
reported, only items of interest were the minor changes put. on 
the teleprinter message to go up to the crew, only very few 
adjustments in the crew activity plan as things have gone very 
much according to the timeline in the previous few days. Crew 
activities scheduled for the flight day 3 include operating some 
of the student experiments onboard, gathering some medical data 
relating to the studies on space motion sickness and later in the

CAPCOM That's affirmative. Your mission summary and the 

CAP update and lot us know at Mila if they're good. If not, 
we'll retransmit them real quickly. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. At first glance they're pretty good. We've 

got one, lot's see, on weather update, state vector update, and 
then we've got, we have two CAP activity timelines and one flight 
plan overview. Is that the sum of it? 

CAPCOM We're happy to report that that is the sum of 

it. We're about a minute away from LOS here. We're going to 
turn over to the ivory team and we'll see you again tonight. 

SPACECRAFT Okay planning team. We thank you all appreciate 

it very much. We slept safe and sound.

requirement to crossfeed the left OMS. I've gone ahead and 
crossfeed some of the left OMS's and note that, at that further 
requirement has taken the left OMS crossfeed bravo to open and I 
guess I thought we were leaving that GPC for the rest of the 
mission. 

CAPCOM To stand by Bob, we'll get right back to you. 

Okay Bob, we'd like to take that left OMS crossfeed back to 
GPC.

Columbia will be within range of Dakar in about 15 seconds. 
We'll standby. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston's with you thru Dakar for six 

minutes . 

SPACECRAFT Roger, Bob. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston. 

SPACECRAFT Go ahead, Bob.. 

CAPCOM Since AN IK has departed the bay, we'd like to 

inhibit the DCOM FDA 3 on. So if you could get SPEC 62 and it 
was in an item 16. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we'll do it. Hey Bob, are we about over the 

Sierra? 

CAPCOM Say again, Columbia, we're approaching ^ keyhole 

and you're getting kind of broken. 

SPACECRAFT Just wondering if we're over the Sierra right 

now. Lots of sand dunes down there. 

CAPCOM Yes, you're over the Sierra. 

SPACECRAFT I guess you can tell the Sierra anywhere. It's a 

beautiful sight though. 

CAPCOM Columbia, we're 30 seconds of LOS at Madrid. 

Indian Ocean station is next at 20-zero-six. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Bob. 

PA0 This is Shuttle Control. Dakar has loss of signal 

with Columbia. The spacecraft is moving down across Africa now 
toward the Indian Ocean. Pilot Bob Overmyer remarking a few 
minutes ago that the Sierra Desert i3 a beautiful sight. Next 
acquisition is thru the Indian Ocean station in 10 and a half 
minutes. At one day 19 hours 55 minutes mission elapsed time 
this is Shuttle Control Houston.

SPACECRAFT 



Roger, Bob. 



CAPCOM I've got a couple, got one configuration for you 

here, we would like the N2 system 2 reg inlet open on panel 
two . 



SPACECRAFT 

CAPCOM 

SPACECRAFT 
opened now. 

CAPCOM 

SPACECRAFT 



Okay, say it again, Rob. (garble) 

Okay, that's N2 system 2 reg inlet opened. 

Okay Bob, I just hit. N2 system 2 reg inlet 

Okay, mighty fine. We see it now. 
Okay Bob, is that it? 



CAPCOM Yeah, that's it for configurations. If you've got 

somebody handy there we would like to know the status of your 
LiOH cannisters. What's installed where. Reason is they've got 
some new type of LiOH cannisters and the EECOM's down here don't 
have anything to do, so their interested in their performance 
this time. 



SPACECRAFT Boh, this is Joe, how do you read? 

CAPCOM Loud and clear Joe. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, due to an oversight on my part Bob, we did 
not get the LiOH installed last night just before bed time. I 
did install it this morninq at 1800. That's, I guess, day one 
slash 1800 hours. And that was LiOH cannister number 5 went in 
position A, and because we're coming up on another LiOH change 
shortly 



END OF TAPE 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t090j GMT 317:08:27 .11/13/82 PAGE 1 



SPACECRAFT We installed it this morning at 1800. That's I 

guess the day 1 slash 1800 hours and that was Li OH cannister 
number 5 went in position A and because we're coming up on 
another bio change shortly I put cannister number 6 in position 
B, over. 

CAPCOM Okay Joe. Thanks a lot. 

SPACECRAFT And just out of curiosity, do you have a reading 

of whether PP C02 went up too last night? 

CAPCOM We saw a 2.1 peak, Bob. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, when it's convenient we'd like you 

to check out the window and kind of give us a check on where the 
elevon position is right now. 

SPACECRAFT The port inboard is full up. Bob, I'm looking 
over at the port. The inboard looks to be full up. Valve board 
looks like it's in trail. 

CAPCOM Okay, Joe, how about starboard? 

SPACECRAFT Bob, on the starboard side, the outward is about 

three-quarters way up and the inboard looks like they're full 
up. 

CAPCOM Okay, starboard out, board is three-quarters up 

and inboard is full up? 

SPACECRAFT That's a good number. 

CAPCOM And we appreciate it. That will help the 

hydraulics folks in their modeling of the system onorbit. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Okay Bob, those the two inboards went to 
full up sometime yesterday and that's the first time I noted that 
that outboard has gone up on the starboard side. I agree with 
that. 

CAPCOM Okay, we copy. Columbia, Houston, we're 30 

seconds to LOS at Indian Ocean station. Talk to you next through 
Yar ragadee . 

SPACECRAFT Okay Bob. 

PAO This is Shuttle Control. Columbia out over the 

Indian Ocean now. Next acquisition through Yarragadee, Australia 
in 7 minutes. Columbia's current orbit is 169 by 160 nautical 
mis. The orbital period is 1 hour 30 minutes 48 seconds. At I

day 20 hours 15 minutes this is Shuttle Control Houston. This is 
Shuttle Control at I day 20 hours 22 minutes mission elapsed 
time. Standing by for acquisition through Yarragadee. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston with you through 

Yarragadee for 8 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Come on. If you have any traffic for us, we've 

got a couple of news of the world type questions to ask vou , if 
you have time? 

CAPCOM Okay, go ahead. We have no traffic for you. 

SPACECRAFT How's the strike going? Are the Oilers playing 

football yet? 

CAPCOM No, no football yet. About the only nowp, of the 

world has been flying around down here with any sort of 
regularity is the Russian news. 

SPACECRAFT Very very sorry to hear about the death of Premier 

President Brezhnev. And certainly wish the Soviet people, the 
Russians, well on their selection process for the next Premier. 
Bob, there's a little- known story I'll tell you someday how 
President Brezhnev was actually wearing my silver astronaut 
pin . 

CAPCOM That would be a good storv, but probably not for 

the loop right now. Can you keep it clean? 

SPACECRAFT There's nothing to it. We were at a recent ion and 

the Soviet delegation gave the American delegation a number of 
items. We weren't prepared and I took off my silver astronaut 
pin and gave it to Tom Stanford, who presented it to the 
President Brezhnev... 



END OF TAPE 



STS-5 A I H /GROUND TRANSCRIPT 1 0 9 1 i GMT 317:08:44 1 1/1 3/82 PAGE 1 

SPACECRAFT ...the Soviet delegation gave the American 

delegation a number of items. We weren't prepared and I took off 
my silver astronaut pin and I gave it to Tom Stanford, who 
presented it to President Brezhnev. 

CAPCOM I think that's an interesting comment Bob, and 

that was probably picked no hv the news folks down here. 

SPACECRAFT I should have said it, I'm sorry. 

CAPCOM If you'll hold up a sign to the window mavbe Joe 

Kerwin can receive a greet ing from you personally now, seems like 
you're coming over his new residence. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Hob. I can't believe the view Rob, I'm 
squatting on C6, mv toes underneath the, where the little hole is 
under the center console there, and able to look out all the 
forward windows at one time, it's lust spectacular. There's no 
way you can tell on film, I tell you. 

CAPCOM Okay Mob, we're ii.st down here trying to figure out 

what your view is, we got the FAO checking your pointinq angle. 

SPACECRAFT It's my view right out. the window, there's a lot of 
land mass underneath me and, as you can see we haven't gotten our 
maps set. up yet this morning. 

CAPCOM Yeah you're passing over Australia. 

SPACECRAFT Okav , that's what we figured. 

CAPCOM And I figured you'd deduced that since we told you 

we told you we were talking to you through Yarragadee. 

SPACECRAFT It's a little dense at times but it kind of stumps 
you once in a while. Joe slept kind of suspended near the 
teleprinter last night, and in the erie q 1 ow of the green radar 
teleprinter, I was suspended in the middeck floating around and 
every time I brushed against something I looked over and I saw 
this kind of body hanging over in this greenish glow. 

CAPCOM Sounds more 1 i ke a Ha 1 1 oween- type story doesn't it? 

SPACECRAFT Yeah that's exactly what it looked like. 

CAPCOM Roy's sitting over here frantically trying to find, 

trying to get a call through to Joe Kerwin and tell him to run 
outside and look up here. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. We wish the folks down in Yarrsngadee would 
pass that word on to Joe, wo certainly do appreciate what the 
folks at Yarragadee are doing for us, and all the support we're 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t091j GMT 317:08:44 11/13/82 PAGE 2 



getting throughout the whole net. And Bob we're maneuvering to 
the IMU al ign' attitude . 

CAPCOM Okay Rob, we're going to lose you for a couple of 

seconds here in the keyhole between Yarragadee and Orroral, be 
back with y° u shortly. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. You there? 

CAPCOM Hello Columbia, we're back with you through Orroral 

now . 

SPACECRAFT Now Bob, a word for the surgeon if you're there, 
we're a little late on the excel detect sensitivity, you may be 
looking for traces on your biomcd channels and we're not going to 
put any on for awhile, we're give you a call when we get to 
that. We're trying to clean stuff up here. 

CAPCOM Okay Joe, and for your information we got Joe 

Ketwin on the land line right now, anything you want us to pass 
on to him? 

SPACECRAFT Alright, give the word from yesterday he owes for 
the September coffee fund. 

CAPCOM Okay we'll remind him. 

SPACECRAFT And in addition, give our greetings to Joe and his 
family. We mot them in the neighborhood and look forward to when 
they come back, know that their having a wonderful time in 
Australia though. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. 

SPACECRAFT Go ahead 

CAPCOM Is Joe Allen available? 

SPACECRAFT Sure is, is this Joe Kerwin? 

CAPCOM This is Roy, jur<t had a conversation with Joe while 

you were over Yarragadee and first part of Orroral he had a 
little note he wanted to pass on to Joe and the rest of the crew. 

SPACECRAFT Go ahead Roy. 

CAPCOM Well, Dr. Kerwin says he considers it terribly 

unfair to have to pay his duos to the coffee mess when all he has 
a chance to drink is (garble) beer. 



SPACECRAFT That last, what's all he has to drink? 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t09lj GMT 317:08:44 11/13/82 PAGE

makes a difference. It's, if a star is bright enough it's not 
overwhelmed by the radical, if you have a dim star, no matter how 
dim you make the radical it's still, it still cannot track the 
star to get it into the center, and I think it's as simple as 
that. Probably the combination of a slightly dirty windshield 
and a dim star is what did it to us, and probably if we got a 
bright star in the ...

SPACECRAFT ....and I think its as simple as that, probably the 
combination of a sliqhtly flirty windshield and a dim star is what 
did it, and probably if we got a briqht star in the -Z, we could 
do it as easily. 

CAPCOM o<ay, Vance. We'll think about whether wo need to 

do anything more and let you know.

Well, great. I realize it was very frustrating 



SPACECRAFT Hey, Roy? 
CAPCOM Yes, sir. 

SPACECRAFT Ask EECOM to look at the dump and give me an 
approximate time for dump complete and I set a timer for it if 
it's going to be a long time. 

CAPCOM Okay, standby. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, Bob you can set your timer for 

eight five minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Eigi.c five. Yeah that's what I figured out. I 
figured about eighty, but that's a long time to worry about 
something so I'll set a timer. 

CAPCOM Good idea. Columbia, Houston. Verify DAP, bravo 5 

deadband for attitude. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we'll check it. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. We're one minute LOS and we'll 

be seeing you in Dakar about 23 after the hour. One reminder on 
doinq the PAM ASE thermal test. We want to make sure you do it 
on both of the spacecraft ASE.

half minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, loud and clear. 

CAPCOM Vance, if its not inconvenient to you, we'd like 

for you to leave one of your forward ADI ' s selected to inertial. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, that'll be easy. We'll leave the left one on 
iner t ial .

we're going to use SPEC 1 again. Wo see you already have it 

called up. I'll let you know when were finished. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston we're finished with CRT l SPEC 
1. 

SPACECRAFT Roger, Houston. Well, having a little breakfast up 

here, Roy. Probably early breakfast Houston time. 

CAPCOM Well, we just got a go from our monitor here that 

we're okay to have an early lunch. 

SPACECRAFT You guys been working a long time. 

CAPCOM What's on the menu today? 

SPACECRAFT Scrambled eggs, Bob said something about just 
getting them loose all over the middeck, I guess we'll have to 
see how many of them we actually eat here. Hey, this has got to 
be the world's biggest challenge here. The scrambled eggs 
weren't quite dehydrated or rehydrated enough and we had them on 
cooking a little bit. Maybe a little bit too long while we were 
doing that IMU olign. I opened up the bag and I'm getting some 
in my mouth, but it's unbelievable the amount of egg we've got 
all over the middeck right at the moment. 

CAPCOM Well, that just sounds, sounds pretty good. I 

guess the guy thats drawing clean-up detail today isn't too happy 
about it though.

SPACECRAFT Yep, serves him right. Just coming over the coast 
of Africa now and we can see the Sahara and all the streak sands 
from strong winds, really reddish sanu quite interesting. Well 
Roy wish me luck. I'm going to try the sausage now. 

CAPCOM Yes, we're just commenting down here Bob. 

Scrambled eggs and sausage sounds a lot better than bologna 
sandwiches . 

SPACECRAFT Well, these are very good. I guarantee it. 

CAPCOM I'm sure Rita will be very happy to hear that. 

SPACECRAFT She doesn't believe me because she knows I'm a chow 
hound anyway. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, we're about 30 seconds LOS. See 

you at Indian Ocean at 42 and don't burn the toast Bob. 

SPACECRAFT I f he does right we got a lot more. I swear 
there's enough food to keep us up here a month. That's the best 
idea Vance has had all day. Let's stay a month. 

CAPCOM Well, we'll look into it, but probably be getting 

you home on Tuesday. Got a lot of folks here anxious to have you 
back . 

SPACECRAFT Just want the airplane back, that's all. Roy, 
don't we have to wait till the lakebed dries out. 

CAPCOM No, too bad. John wants to get that thing cleaned 

up for his flight. 

SPACECRAFT We'll have all the scrambled eggs ate up by his 
flight. See you at Indian Ocean. 

CAPCOM See you . 

PAO This is Shuttle Control Dakar has loss of signal. 

Next station is the Indian Ocean station in 10 and 1/2 minutes. 
Bob Overmyer has had an accident with the scrambled eggs and he 
says they're floating all over the middeck. He did comment that 
the eggs and the sausage are very good. Their reference to Rita 
is to Rita Rapp who has been working in planning astronaut meals 
and menus for many years here at the Johnson Space Center. Vance

mi nutes . 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we're just crossing over the Indian Ocean and

one more time. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we're hearing you loud and clear.

COMM problem. We'll leave you alone while you have your 
breakfast, okay? 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Roy, can you read me, this is Joe, over? 

CAPCOM Yes, I heard you five by initially Joe, and then 

you faded out. Let us check our COMM down here. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, give a call. Bert you there? 

CAPCOM Yes sir, hear you five by now. 

SPACECRAFT We spent the last five minutes wrestling with the 
heat for the food warmer and I think it's winning. It's got a 
there's as many rehydratable for heat as we had for breakfast 
this morning, it just becomes a handful of everything and it is. 

CAPCOM You mean as far as amount of time it takes to get 

everything warmed up? 

SPACECRAFT What I mean is... 

END OF TAPE 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t096j GMT 317:10:05 11/13/82 PAGE 1 



SPACECRAFT (garble) for heat as we had for breakfast this 

morning it just becomes a handful of everything and its ... 

CAPCOM You mean as for as the amount of time it takes to 

get everything warmed up? 

SPACECRAFT What I mean is the package! won't stay in there 
neatly. When you get the 8 ounces of water in the coffee they 
expand so much that they don't want to sit down into the matting 
rack. So every time you open up the heat for the foot warmer you 
gotta have five hands because they all come floating out. And 
man it is just a wrestling match and you're floating in the 
middle of the middeck wrestling with the food warmer and it wins 
every time. 

CAPCOM Okay, we have visions of that now and it sounds a 

little sort of funny. Unless you're the one responsible for 
putting it all back in? 

SPACECRAFT That's kind of my reaction. It's funny as the 
devil if you're watching somebody do it, but when you have to do 
it by yourself it's very frustrating. 

CAPCOM Right. I noticed somebody up on the flight deck, 

if there's somebody there, we'd like to have a GNC SPEC 1 again 
for some more varible parameters. We were getting some data for 
the COAX CAL. 

SPACECRAFT Okay we'll just see (garble) work Roy. I crashed 
in. On your teleprinter message this morning I'm assuming you'd 
like pictures of the port POD and the little chips of tiles that 
we see there. Is that correct, and you want that on the VTR dump 
to you shortly. 

CAPCOM Standby Joe and I'll recheck that. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, I just need a time about when you want the 
VTR that down. I'm got about 1 minute of it. It's pretty 
clear. I think nothing to worry about, but for completeness 
would be pleased to send it down to you. 

CAPCOM Okay Joe. Your description is exactly what we 

want and we're setting up to take it at Mila on the next pass. 
And we've got a Mila AOS next time of 22 hours and 44 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Copy. We copy that. 

CAPCOM Okay. 

SPACECRAFT How about a little Doug Kershaw this morning? 



CAPCOM 



Well, thank you very much for the music. I think 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t096j GMT 317:10:05 11/13/82 PAGE 2 



we got a ways to go before we're going to turn that into a good 
high-fidelity transmitting instrument. We've got you set up for 
both Goldstone and Mila next time so we've got plenty of time to 
catch your dump. Goldstone is 22 38 AOS. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, very good. And Roy, tell the PAO people 
that if they don't like the music they oughta just turn that 
channel off. 

CAPCOM Okay Joe, I think they copied and we'll be going 

LOS here just a moment. We'll see you at Yarragadee at 58. 

SPACECRAFT Roger that. 

PAO This is Shuttle Control Columbia's out of range of 

the Indian Ocean station now. Next acquisition through 
Yarragadee in 7 and 1/2 minutes. During the next pass over the 
continental United States we're getting about 51 minutes from 
now, 4:57 a.m. Central Standard Time we expect some television 
from Columbia. This will be a dump from the video tape recorder 
aboard Columbia of the OMS POD survey that was shot yesterday. 
Joe Allen indicating there's about 1 minutes worth of tape of 
that activity. We'll be set up to take that from Goldstone and 
also from Merritt Island. Rob Overmyer indicating he's having 
somewhat of a problem with the food warmer. When he opens it all 
the dehydratable packages float out and he has to catch them and

capability to dump the video tape recorder. Joe Allen indicating 
about 1 minutes worth of tape on that recorder of the OMS POD 
survey. Following the tape dump there is a possibility wo may 
get some live television from the payload bay cameras. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston, with you through 

Buckhorn . 

SPACECRAFT rtoqor , Houston, loud and clear. And Houston, 

we've completed the hot fire test. It went well. Mo 
anomalies. We are sot up for the VRCS single engine soakback and 
deselected R2D and R3D. 

CAPCOM Okay Vance. Looks like you got a good 

configuration here. And Vance, could you ask Joe or Rill to give 
us sot.e words on the thermal soakback not thermal soakback but 
the ASE PAM heater test. 

SPACECRAFT Rob, this is Joe, the data take for the AN IK is 

now in process. It should finish in about 1 minute and as a 
matter of fact there's my 5 minute alarm right now. You just 
have 5 minutes of data on your recorder at this moment for ANIK, 
and 5 minutes previous to that I recorded the thermal data for 
the FDS. And check it out and if it's okay we'll press on. 

CAPCOM Okay Joe, that's mighty fine. We've got the data 



SPACECRAFT Okay, be curious if it shows you anything 

different than you expect. 

CAPCOM Okay, we'll get back to you if we see any 

anomal ies . 



SPACECRAFT Roqer.

particles showinq in this scene are not. It's going to end in 
just a moment and you'll qet a close-up as good as we can do of 
the OMS POD verniers. It's on the ports ido and you'll see two 
triangular shaped tiles that are chipped off. They don't look 
particularly serious from here even through the binoculars. I'm 
assuming that's what you wanted to see a closo-up over. 

CAPCOM Joe, wo didn't have any TV at all. In fact we 

still don't have any TV downlink. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, standby. 

CAPCOM Joe, we're LOS at Goldstone now. We'll have to 

get it at Mila. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Rob. that may have been my error. Let me 
give it to you at Mila. 

CAPCOM Okay, mightly fine. And Columbia we're 20 seconds 

to LOS. We'll pick you up at Mila at 4 4. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Okav , Rob, but I'll be transmitting when 

you come up. I'm sorry that I missed that one.

CAPCOM Oh, we've got a pretty good bit Joe, and we've got 

5 minutes at Mila. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, this is the lead in, may be in a little bit 

more of the water dump than you want. But you should get the 

other shortly. I'd be interested, do you see any water specs, at 
all, in there?

SPACECRAFT Okay, this is the load in, it may be a little bit 
more of the water dump than you want. You should get the other 
shortly. I'd be interested, do you see water specs at all in 
this? 

CAPCOM No Joe, I really can't see anythinq. We're just 

seeing the terminator crossing the screen now. 

SPACECRAFT And there the two missing parts of tile, you 

should see it fairly clearly now. 

CAPCOM Yeah, we got a good picture on that. 

SPACECRAFT And that's the end of the dump, nob. 

CAPCOM Okay Joe, that was a good picture. You could 

practically read the numbers on the tile from here. 

SPACECRAFT That's good. I'll give you some live TV if you 

want it right now. 

CAPCOM That would be super. 

SPACECRAFT You want it? 

CAPCOM Yeah, go ahead. 

SPACECRAFT Bob, I'm going to be real careful. I don't want 

to look into the Sun. 

CAPCOM Joe, do you think you might get some Earth in the 

background for us on this shot? 

SPACECRAFT Rob, I'm afraid to look. The Sun is right there, 

hang on just a second. You'll see the horizon come now with the 
Sun coming up. And a very bright line on the right side of the 
vertical stabilizer. 

CAPCOM Yeah, we got a good shot on it Joe. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, I'm going to come over a little bit more. 
Sure looks like a lot of dry area down there. Where are we over 
right now, Bob? 

CAPCOM Should be just crossing Florida. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, that's just the cloud deck with the red 
sun. Sun going to be up shortly, we can see it on the horizon. 

CAPCOM That's some real pretty pictures, Joe. Too bad 

you can't see it in color. Too bad we can't see it for real.

SPACECRAFT Wo don't mind the monitor being black ana lito. 
Tell our friends to keep their eyes on the monitor. 
Breathtaking, absolutely breathtaking. There are many, many 
bands of blue in the atmosphere he fore it touches the Earth. And 
it probably looks just like a small ribbon to to you Rob, ? 

CAPCOM Yeah, wo can't really see your bands of blue 

Joe. Wo got a real good picture of good horizon. 

SPACECRAFT Okav I'm qoinq to pan it up now and let you look 

at the straight down, if you have a few more minutes. 

CAPCOM Yes sir, we should have a few more mintues. 



SPACECRAFT Rob? Houston, the ECLS set redundant component 

check is completed looks good. 

CAPCOM Okay Vance we copy. 

SPACECRAFT And we're looking right down at the Atlantic ocean 

now Robert. It looks pretty cloudy up ahead. 

CAPCOM Joe we're seeing a bright, white spot on the 

center of the picture. Could you give us a hint of what that 
might be? 

SPACECRAFT Yes, T think it's a secondary reflection in the 

lens of the camera itself Rob, because let me pan it to the right 
and you'll see it move. Yeah it moves and now it's out of the 
picture a little bit. Out of our monitor picture, but it's 
secondary reflection in the TV camera. We're coming real close 
to looking into the Sun, so we're cutting that pretty fine up 
here . 

CAPCOM Okay, we're getting kind of weak on the MILA, 

we're going to through a MILA keyhole and we'll lose TV signal 
here . 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we'll show you some more later, if you keep 

the TV links up. 

CAPCOM Okay, sir we'll do it. And Columbia, this is 

Houston, this is a reminder, we'd like to get the DFI power up so 
we can check your tile pressure here. 

CAPCOM Columbia this is Houston. We'd like to get a GNC 

SPEC 1 again please.

again you can have that SPF.C 1 back. 

SPACECRAFT Thank you. Did you find it? This is Columbia, 

how do you read? 

CAPCOM You're loud and clear. 

SPACECRAFT Hey Bob, what is going through the STS-5 message 

board down there I noticed the appointment I missed at 6:15 on 
Tuesday. I was wondering if you could check on that, I did a 
whole bunch of no handed pushups downstairs and see if we could 
count those, would you? 

CAPCOM I'll check on that, but that sounds like a flakev 

substi tute . 

SPACECRAFT Oh no, a lot of hard work babe. 

CAPCOM Columbia we're 20 seconds to LOS, Dakar is next at 

2258. 

SPACECRAFT (garble)

of Bermuda next station is Dakar in 2 minutes 45 seconds. Vance 
Brand reporting during this pass over the United States that the 
reaction control system test went well also the tests on the the 
vernier engine, the small RCS engine. We got a look at the video 
tape recorder dump which showed parts of two tiles missing from 
the OMS POD and then we had a period of live television of the 
payload bay and some Earth views with Joe Allen describing the 
Sunrise. Columbia's in orbit number 32 now and at 1 day 22 hours

SPACECRAFT Houston we're reading you loud and clear 

CAPCOM Okay Vance we got a pretty long pass here about 9 

minutes and we're throuqh with the DFI power so you can get those 
signal conditioners off if you desire, or run your power 
pressures throuqh the computer here. 

SPACECRAFT All right. 

CAPCOM And got a comment for Joe, Joe on your TV stuff 

the only schedule TV for the remainder day is Hawaii on REV 38 it 
takes about an hour or an hour and a half to set up a site for TV 
so if you've got something that you want to dump give us that 
much notice. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Bob, I understand on the REV 38 that's in 

addition to the planned TV pass, is that correct? 

CAPCOM That is the plan TV pass Joe. 

SPACECRAFT Well okay, the way I have it set up according to 
the checklist as I understand it, that's live TV and we'll put 

the rest on tape.

we really can't assure a privacy on that conference. That's your 

next shot at a good assured privacy on that conference is 
Hawai i . 

SPACECRAFT Okay let's do it there. 

CAPCOM Okay, will do. 

SPACECRAFT Bob, we've got the runway at Dakar spotted right 

now. We can see it visually, Bob, with the naked eye. 

CAPCOM Well that's good. As long as you're seeing it from 

this altitude, I hope we never have to see it up closer. 

SPACECRAFT Drink to that. 

CAPCOM From the looks of our flight board here in Mission 

Control. It looks like they're just about to fly down a NASA 
trajectory. So you might want to look a little further down 
track . 

SPACECRAFT (garble) Good idea. 



CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, we're about 5 seconds to LOS and 

we'll talk to you next through Yarragadee.

that again. 



SPACECRAFT Just wanted to tell you that we had to mop up a 

lot of excess water coming up around the Li OH door, it looks like 
it's condensation right along the cold beam there at the Li OH 
door (garble) down on. It was enough there when I was running 
the treadmill it kept spurting as the doors qo up and down. It 
kept spurting up water, I think we got it mopped up pretty 
well. It's probably due to our cold attitude, do you think 7 

CAPCOM Well, we'll think about that, and let vou know. 

SPACECRAFT We didn't have it earlier, so this just started 

from last night. 

CAPCOM Okay Bob.

comes first, either the pressure limit, or the time limit. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, I got that. 

SPACECRAFT And looking ahead Roy, we'll never do step 3, we'll 
end up doing the L5D firing to substitute step 3, is that affirm? 

CAPCOM That's affirmative. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. I think we already assumed this page one 
time, (garble). Okay, I'm going to start the power up there, 
Roy . 

CAPCOM Okay, good Bob, we'll be watching. Well, I guess 

we won't, don't have any data until we hit Hawaii. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, we're about 30 seconds LOS, 

we'll see you at Hawaii at 35. We may pick you up for about a 
minute at Guam at 25. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we got it. 

PAO This is Shuttle Control, Columbia is out of range 

at Yarragadoe, next acquisition through Guam in 6 and a half 
minutes. Dr. Sam Pool, chief of the Medical Sciences Division at

PAO Doctor Sam Pool, Chief of the Medical Sciences 

Division at JSC, has issued a medical summary that we'll give you 
now. He reports that from the medical point of view, this 
mission has progressed pretty much as expected, generally good 
health and excellent performance. Two of the crew have 
experienced some brief episodes of space sickness and have taken 
medications for space sickness. One of the crewrnembers has 
completely adopted, adapted and has no more symptoms, one 
continues to have some symptoms. Dr. Pool will be available at 
the change of shift news conference. That conference currently 
scheduled for 8:50 a.m., central standard time. If that time 
changes, we will notify you on this loop as soon as a new time is 
known. Currently the change of shift is scheduled for 8:50 a.m., 
central standard time in the briefing room at JSC newscenter. 
Participants in that conference will be Flight Director Tommy 
Holloway and Dr. Sam Pool. At 2 days, 1 hours, 20 minutes, 
mission elapsed time, this is Shuttle Control, Houston. 

PAO This is Shuttle Control at 2 days, 1 hour, 24 

minute, mission elapsed time. Standing by for acquisition 
through Guam on the very end of orbit number 33. Orbit 34 will 
begin during the Guam pass. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston with you at Guam for 1 minute, we 

have nothing to pass, we'll be standing by. 

SPACECRAFT Yeah, I've got something. When we brought on the 
aft bay fans and the cabin fans, the redundant ones to get the 
load up, we got caution and warnings on them because of the high 
double Ps, and so we shut them off and I swapped out to get the 
19 Kw, I've got the (garble) radar altimeter on, I think if you 
have the tact fan on, you wouldn't care if you had those other 
two on here. So those are on and that's what's giving me my 19 
Kw right now. 

CAPCOM Roger. 

SPACECRAFT They also just turned on the food warmer to try and 
get it up a little bit. 

CAPCOM Roger. 

CAPCOM Columbia, we're going LOS, we'll see you at Hawaii 
at 3 5. 

SPACECRAFT Yes sir. 

PAO This is Shuttle Control, Guam has loss of signal, 
next acquisition throuqh Hawaii in 8 minutes. At 2 days, 1 hour, 

28 minutes, mission elapsed time, this is Shuttle Control, 
Houston .

dropout and we'll be stateside for a fairly complete pass across 
the stations in the Continental United States. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston, with you for 8 minutes 

through the beautiful (garble) Islands. 

SPACECRAFT Roger, thank you, Houston. 

SPACECRAFT This is Columbia with you. And Houston, Bob's 
making some habitability comments on intercom Bravo. 

CAPCOM Okay Joe, copy, ICOM B, do you know when he started 

them? 



SPACECRAFT Oh, about 5 minutes ago, Bob, and he'll be at it 
for a few more minutes. They're there for later on when you want 
them. 

CAPCOM Okay, we'll start looking on the tape then at about 

1:31 or so, and we'll listen till it goes away. 

SPACECRAFT Bob, he started them at 2, 2 days, 1 hour and 30 
minutes, MET. I'm just worried that if you're dumping ICOM R 
now, can I continue recordinq on it? 

CAPCOM Yeah Bob, you can go ahead and continue recording, 

we'll back it up on you OPS 1 recorder. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Bob. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston, we're 20 seconds to LOS

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston. We're 20 seconds tiJl 

LOS in Hawaii. Buckhorn will be next at 0145. 

SPACECRAFT We also turn on some - I mentioned those caution 

warnings and I think we're going to (garble) the way on the 
caution and warning locator test and the fire supression test for 
a little while. We'll catch up later today. 

CAPCOM Okay, Bob. We copy that. That should be no 

problem . 

PAO This is Mission Control Houston. Loss of Signal 

at Hawaii. About 1 minute away from the Buckhorn Station in 
California. Columbia crew now involved in the power reactant 
supply and distribution stratification test. That is testing of 
the cryogenic hydrogen and oxygen storage aboard Columbia. Part 
of the test involves loading everything you can onto the 
electrical power distribution system, the kitchen stove, the 
ports light, everything. To try to get the load up to in excess 
of 19 kilowatts. It's now showing a total of 19.16 kilowatts on 
all 3 fuel cells. The crew activity plan calls for that load to 
remain on the electrical system for approximately 3 hours. It's 
one of the detailed test objectives of the - this flight. We 
have data coming in from Buckhorn now for the next 8 minutes. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston. With you through 

Buckhorn and Goldstone. 

SPACECRAFT Roger, we copy Bob. Bob, I'm still recording on 

ICOM B, be another minute here. 

CAPCOM Okay, Bob. Appreciate you letting us know when 

you get through cause we're running ops recorder 1 to track this 
stuff. 

SPACECRAFT One more comment. That's all the - 

CAPCOM Columbia, you we're kind of broken and short. Are 

you finished recording? 

SPACECRAFT Yes, Bob. I'm all done right no* and the last 

comments (garble) and the last comments, if you're trying to find 
it on tape (garble) G and we did have I interruption in the 
middle, whoever's going to listen to that, whore we talked a few 
minutes - you got to listen all the way through it till you - the 
last thing I talked about is the bungees. 

CAPCOM Okay, Bob. We copy. 

SPACECRAFT Houston, Columbia. 



CAPCOM 



Go ahead, Columbia.

SPACECRAFT Bob, did you ask Rita how many coffees with cream 

she put onboard. I can't find any. 

CAPCOM Okay, we'll check with Rita. 

SPACECRAFT It's all a plot. If the guys hid it on me, I 

can't find it. 

CAPCOM And Bob, this lack of coffee with cream sounds 

like one of your major anomalies. We've got half the MOCR 
working on it right now. 

SPACECRAFT I wish they'd found it you know. I think the guys 

hid them on me. I think that's what happened. We got coffee 
black and then coffee with cream and sugar and we got it all 
around but I don't have any coffee with cream. But that's all 
right, Bob, the tough will perservere. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston. 

SPACECRAFT Go. 

CAPCOM I have good news, Rob. Your coffee with cream. 

There should be 12 of them in holder wrap 2 in MF14M. 

SPACECRAFT (garble) holder wrap 2. Well, I searched that 

this morning. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston. We're I minute till a 

short LOS here about 1 minute between Buckhorn and Mila and the 
ascent and entry team is signing off turning you over to orbit 
guys. See you tomorrow. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, thanks a lot, Bob. Be advised, I can't find 

holder wrap 2. I think they hid it on me. 

CAPCOM I'm sorry, sir. We can't control what your crew 

does to you. 

SPACECRAFT Well, I guess I'm lost, Joe. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston. The orbit team is with you 

now . 

SPACECRAFT Gotcha. 

CAPCOM We got about 6 minutes left here at the Mila pass. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Mike. Things are going well. We're in the 

middle of a meal.

SPACECRAFT Okay Mike, things are going well, we're in the 

middle of a meal. 

CAPCOM Roger, we'll try to be quiet here, we got plenty of 

coffee down here, so we're all fine. 

SPACECRAFT Well, you're doing better than me. 

CAPCOM So, we understand. 

SPACECRAFT Somewhere, somewhere in this Spacecraft is about 10 
more coffees with cream. 

CAPCOM Roger, maybe the sDonge ate 'em. 

SPACECRAFT That's what I was thinking. Well we still haven't 
found that one sponge package so maybe that's right. And Mike, 
if you don't mind, I'll amplify a little bit on that recording, 
the idea of my recording that habitabilitv comments was to let 
you guys contact any of the habitability engineers that may be of 
interest, and maybe I generated a question or two, I tried to 
debrief everything I could think of, and there may be a question 
or two in their minds, basically everything else here is working 
real fine, (garble) pickie little things nothing major. 

CAPCOM Roger Bob, we're anxious to lister: to that, and 

we'll get back to you if we have any questions. 



SPACECRAFT Mow's the weather in Houston today? 

CAPCOM Roger, the wnther here in Houston is a little bit 

cooler than it has been. About the low 50' s right now, kind of 
clear outside. 

SPACECRAFT Super. II" you got any news, we're i us t sitting 
here trying to eat some BBQ Beef, we'd be happy to listen to 
anything that might be of interest. 

CAPCOM Roger Bob, the big news down here is that the Space 

Shuttle successfully deployed a couple of satell'tes the last 
couple days. 

SPACECRAFT Other than i lat. 

SPACECRAFT Are we too early, or is there any further woi d on 
the transferals of those satellites? 

CAPCOM Stand by on » at on* 1 .

floating, ntill being towed in to port, should be arriving 
..ometime this afternoon. 

SPACECRAFT Good. 

SPACECRAFT You may be interested in what I'm doing Mike, you 
really feel like when you're eating you like to get your whole 
body in a restrain, like your head and shoulders and everything, 
I've got my feet up on about the fourth step of a ladder and my 
neck jammed against the bulKheaJ right above ML31C it makes a 
perfect place, and I'm sitting here catimj my BBQ beef and kind 
of a picnic. 

CAPCOM Okay, \/e copy. We'll have to take your word that, 

that's comfortable. 

SPACECRAFT It's the first time we all agree that Rob's showing 
restraint when he eats. 

CAPCOM Roger, we copy that. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston we're 40 seconds from LOS , 

we'll talk to you through Ascension at 2 plus 15, and Bob gave us 
a good idea on a BBQ, we're getting ou* orders together for 
Petey's this afternoon. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, well I tell ya , what we got is awful good up 
here . 

CAPCOM Roger, we'll pass that along to Rita. 

SPACECRAFT These guys that say you lose your appetite in space 
are not chow hounds like me I can tell you that. 

CAPCOM I can believe that Bob. 

SPACECRAFT I rest my case.

that the tne food onboard is very good. Speakinq as what he 
described as an old chow hound, and he wanted the CAPCOM to par,s

Ascension, 3 minutes away from reacquisit ion through Botswana, 
voice relay station in South Africa. Off going Flight Director 
Tommy Holloway is scheduled to have his change of shift press 
confernce at 8:40 CST in the JSC newscenter. He will be 
accompanied by Chief Flight Surgeon Dr. Sam Pool. The Flight 
Director is now leaving the control center, headed toward Bldg. 
2. Two minutes away from r eacqu is i t ion at Botswana. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, we're stand inq by through 

Botswana for 7 and 1/2 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Roger. 

SPACECRAFT And Mike, you got any other suggestions of anything 
we can turn on to get the loads up, I noticed, I guess (garble) 
down to 19KW, anything else we can get on, we don't want to turn 
those fans that we had on because they'd given (garble) alarms. 

CAPCOM Okay, we'll take a look at that. 

SPACECRAFT Mike, we're getting set up for the glow 

experiment. There's quite a lot of gear to assemble, and we're 
getting that ready. As we ride along here on primary thrusters, 
if you brace yourself against the orbiter and a thruster fires, 
you can feel the orbiter vibrate long after the thrusters gone 
off, I'd guess 3 or 4 seconds, and it seemed to vibrate about 3 
or 4 hertz vibration, that's most intersting. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl.08j GMT 317; 14:23 11/13/82 PACE 2

you . 

SPACECRAFT Mike, while we're just eating and getting ready 
here, I just can't say how much that long sim helped us prepare 
for this. With the exception of the floating back and forth, 
instead of walking, I feel like I've been through all this

just can't say how much that long SIM helped us prepare for 
this. With the exception of floating back and forth, instead of 
walking. I feel like I've been through all this before. 

CAPCOM Roger, Bob, wo sure agree with that. 

SPACECRAFT Amazing how everything is just, everything is 
operating just like it did in the long SIM. Except here's better 
bv 12 orders of magnitude. 

CAPCOM Thank you, Joe, I wish we were all up there to see 

it. 

SPACECRAFT I wish you were too, Michael. 

SPACECRAFT We'll get our head together on this thing. But I 
tell you, I think there's room for a few more anytime. When 
we're up here and just think, four of us are having no problems 
at all. 

CAPCOM Okay, that's good to hear. 

SPACECRAFT The times it gets crowded is when there's something 
big in the aft window, or else up in the top windows, and all 
four want to look at the same time. 

CAPCOM Roger, Bob, and we'd like to leave the loads right 

where they are, things are looking good. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, I'm sorry I can't get up to 19, but those 
fans were tripping the caution warning, that was just very 
annoying . 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, Bob, when the circ pumps 

come on, that pushes the loads way up there, and the average is 
about where we'd like.

information for you. The cabin 02 message that you got a while 
ago was caused by the switch over from system 2 to 1 , and system 
1 regs a little bit higher than systems' 2 and so the reg tried 
to make it up all at one time. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, yes we noticed it. We thought maybe it was 

normal, so we didn't say much. 

CAPCOM Right, you can ignore that. 

SPACECRAFT Mike, just a question, did anybody make anything 

out of that, were you able to retrieve ICOM B on my report to you 
there?

reversed order, reversed in order. 

CAPCOM Okay, Joe. We got that thank you. 

SPACECRAFT And another comment, although I know the attitude 
rap does not matter to much. The air from the original attitude 
after the end of the roll is about roll sending minus 72 pitch 
minus 8, and yaw minus 78 degrees. 

CAPCOM Okay, Vance, we got those numbers. 

SPACECRAFT And Houston, Columbia. 

CAPCOM Go ahead Vance. 

SPACECRAFT Roger. Based on your call, we started the maneuver 
at 4 hours 6 minutes 30 seconds and we observed spacecraft sunset 
exactly at 4 hours 11 minutes and that's how we started our 
elapsed timer and we're basing photos on that. 

CAPCOM Roger, we understand. Columbia, Houston. We're 30 

seconds from LOS. We'll talk to you through Hawaii at 4 + 48. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Mike. We'll see you over Hawaii. And Mike, 
just a note, the VTR is running and we're looking th ough cameras 
Charlie and Delta, and according to the monitors, their not

picking up any glow at all. Of course, it could be a lower level 
and it might be going onto the tape, but there's no obvious 
indication that we're seeing it in the TV. 

CAPCOM Okay, we understand. 

PAO This is Mission Control Houston. Loss of Signal in 

Guam. Five minutes across the Pacific to reacquisition at 
Hawaii. About .1/4 the way through orbit number 36 the crew 
currently tunning the glow experiment which in the test 
objectives list is called investigation of STS atmospheric 
luminosity. In this particular investigation the crew will be 
using or is using comoination of television camera and video tape 
recorder. 70 millimeter Hassleblad cameras and 35 millimeter 
nikon cameras to attempt to capture what appears to be something 
like a space version of St. Almos fire, where the orbiter, some 
orbiter surfaces glow in the dark. The nikon has an image 
intensifier and which hopefully will boost the effective film 
speed to get some evidence of the glow. Joe Allen just reported 
that LOS in Guam near LOS Guam that there was no joy in getting 
any kind of image on the video tapes. 3 minutes now away from 
reacqusition through Hawaii. At day 2, 4 hours 44 minutes

PAO Mission Control Houston. We have acquisition 

through Hawaii at this time. 

SPACECRAFT And Houston, you still there? 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston. We're just coming over the 

hill here at Hawaii. We'll be with you for 8 minutes now go 
ahead . 

SPACECRAFT Roger. We're finished with the experiment 
maneuvering back to starboard sun. 

CAPCOM Roger. 

SPACECRAFT Houston Columbia. 

CAPCOM Go ahead. 

SPACECRAFT Mike, we sort of intentionally put off 2 

spacecrafts gas on page 4-41 on the cap but 145 the annunciator 

caution and warning lamp test and fire smoke so I'm going to do 

those now. You, if you see them happening you'll know. 

CAPCOM Okay, thanks for the warning. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston. Tanks C and D are full 

now. You can reopen supply bravo inlet valve R12. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, in work. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, we're about 50 seconds from 

LOS. We'll talk to you through Buckhorn again in about 3 minutes 
and Bob, slinger 1 down here Dan Germany and he would like to 
tell you thank you for the comments on WCS. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Bob's, temporarily indisposed. We'll pass 
that on to him. 

CAPCOM Roger. 

SPACECRAFT He's continuing the testing and Dan deserves the 
the compliment. 

CAPCOM Roger, that. 



CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston. We're with you through 

Buckhorn for 3 J/2 minutes.

SPACECRAFT Roqer, Houston. And the note on the fire/smoke 
detector suppression test, wo have 1 iiqht that does not light 
up. That's system A on bay 3. All the other light are okay. 

CAPCOM Roger, we copy. System A av bay 3 liqht. 

Columbia, Houston. We're 30 seconds from a long LOS. We'll talk 
to you again at Botswana at 5 + 38.

maneuvered back to the nominal starboard to sun attitude. The 
fire/smoke detection test and the caution and warning lamp test 
had been delayed from a couple of hours ago has been completed. 
We'll return at Ascension Island in 34 minutes, Mission Control 
Houston . 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. With you through Botswana for 7 

minutes, over. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we copy and we got some words for you on my 
water search. 

CAPCOM Okay, go ahead, Bob. 

SPACECRAFT Well, basically the only place I saw any water 
underneath here at all was around the Y duct into the heat 
exchanger and that's under that access panel you just get into it 
real easy, and there's a couple of joints that don't have proper 
or don't have sufficient insulation on them and they both had a 
lot of water all around them. Well, I wouldn't say a lot they 
were just covered with a layer of water all around the joint. I 
suspect that water is migrating over there and coming up around 
the cryo canisters, at least that's my first quess. Looking back 
as far as I could toward the tanks, I could see no water under 
the tank Charlie or Delta. I really couldn't see much water 
anywhere else except on the . . .

SPACECRAFT LooKing back is far as I could toward the tanks. 

I could see no water under the tank Charlie or Delta. I really 
couldn't see much water anywhere else except on the starboard 
side of the lioh canister box looking down through the air vent 
screen. There was some water on the wiring down in that area 
just a little bit. Again, I suspect all from the - well I don't 
know where it's from, but it doesn't look like there is a massive 
leak of water going on or anything like that. 

CAPCOM Okay, we copied all that, Rob. That sounds like 

good news. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston. If you get a free moment, 

we'd like to get you to amplify on this CRT 2 failure, how it 
looked at prior to going blank if you saw any distortion of the 
text when it was shifted. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. It you could draw a line vertically on the 

on the CRT right down the middle, right horizontally right down 
the middle and make it into equal quadrants. The CRT 2 did a 
shift and the next scene that was up was what would normally be 
on the upper right quadrant of the any serene. In other words, 
the CRT timer and the MET times, the center in the lower left 
quadrant for the upper left quadrant, the upper right quadrant 
and lower right quadrant were blank. And the lower left quadrant 
had information in it which would normally be up in the upper 
right quadrant. And it stayed that way for quite awhile. We 
powered cycled it and it came back, (garble) tried to go SM on it 
and then it died. Does that make any sense to you there, Mike? 

CAPCOM Roger, could you tell us the text that you could 

see. The timers and so forth were they distorted or were the 
text numbers clear? 

SPACECRAFT It was absolutely clear, Mike. You could read the 

CRT time and then in particular I had sent someone upon there for 
awhile on the SM. I take that back. I had - you could see from 
the universal pointing, you could see the last half of the PTG, 
you could see all the numbers counting, right? And you could see 
•-he current future and the asterisk on the track and the row of 
garble) inspect items 18, 19, 20, and 21 were on there. Just 
set that bottom left quadrant perfectly and the other three 
quadrants were empty. 

CAPCOM Okay, Bob. That's a good explanation. It really 

helps us out. It sounds like a DEU failure then. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, sounds like a DEU, huh? 



CAPCOM Roger. That's - we were able to duplicate that 

down hero so that t^illy helps. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tll4j GMT 317:17:58 11/13/82 PAGE 2 



SPACECRAFT Is that right? Super. Looks to me like just a 

matter of getting behind that screen over there and swapping the 
- swapping the cables. Is that correct? 

CAPCOM Standby a second, Bob. We're discussing it. And 

Columbia, Houston. Bob, we concur with that. It sounds like 
we'll be .able to swap cables there with 2 and 4 - should fix the 
problem. Get back to you on that. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we're not planning on that till day 5 I 

don't believe. 

CAPCOM That's affirmative. And Columbia, Houston. We're 

going to go through a short LOS here for about a minute and we'll 
talk to you through IOS. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Mike. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston. We're back with you 

through IOS for 7 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Mike. How you read us, Mike? 

CAPCOM Go ahead. 

SPACECRAFT How you read us? 

CAPCOM Okay, we got you loud a little bit garble. 

SPACECRAFT And that my friend is a treadmill. 

CAPCOM Okay, we copy the treadmill. And Columbia, 

Houston. We're 30 seconds to LOS. We'll talk to you again 
through Guam at 6 +12. Our bar-b-que sandwich just arrived, Bob, 
so we're going to have those now. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Houston we copy. You should have seen this 
scene. Vance set indoor record for speed and heart rate up to 
about 140 on the treadmill. Looked to me like he was going about 
50 miles an hour and everytime he'd (garble) he'd splatter up 
tiny tiny little droplets of water so it's like being in a small 
rain shower on the middeck now. 

CAPCOM Roger, we copy. Joe, sounds like a good workout. 

SPACECRAFT (garble).

PAO This is Mission Control, Houston, loss of signal 

at Indian Ocean station, on orbit 37, 36, nearing the end of 
36. We're some 15 minutes away from reacquisition at Guam, 
coming up on the noon meal period, and as the capcom mentioned, 
soiue of the people here in the control room are muching out on 
barbeque sandwiches brought in from outside. We'll return in 15 
minutes, at Guam, this is Mission Control, Houston. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston with you through Guam for 5 

minutes, over. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Houston, got some bad news for the RMU 
guys. We're going to have to use the alternate, the screw head 
on the bottom of the rudder for the target. The band shield's 
closed, you can see target 3 when you put your head at the very 
top of our aft windows, but the theadolite doesn't come up high 
enough and it just looks at the top of the PAM. So when I do the 
theadolite (garble) after bit, I'm going to have to use the 
alternate screw. 

CAPCOM Okay, Bob, we concur, that's a good thing to do. 

SPACECRAFT I don't know if it's a good thing to do, it's the 

only thing we can do, I think. 

CAPCOM Roger. 

SPACECRAFT And we seem to have misplaced the theadolite cue 

card, but since the readying's on it, we're all based on that 
number 3. Anyway, I guess I won't use that anyways, so 
essentially starting all over again. 

CAPCOM Roger. 

SPACECRAFT And Mike, just so you won't be concerned, I just 

happen to have some time to do this, went ahead and set it up and 

look through. I' dont' think those readinqs are on the proper 
time now. 

CAPCOM Okay, we copy, Fjob. 

SPACECRAFT We're going on a giant cue card, now, Mike. 

CAPCOM Roger, Bob. As a reminder, the theodolite target 

pad is also in the Orbit OPS checklist on page FS4-3. 

SPACECRAFT I've got that, but that doesn't have the zero 
readings in it from the 5 A plan, does it? 



CAPCOM 



Standby . 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tll5j GMT 317:18:13 11/13/82 PAGE 2 



SPACECRAFT Just right now, when I said it won't make any 
difference anyway if we're using the screw, those were taken off 
of number 3. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, Bob, we'd just like you to 

go ahead and zero in on the screw and record that data. And we'd 
like, in order to preclude any possibility of another CRT 
failure, we'd like to avoid cycling CRT power to create a message 
down here when we anitate voice recorders. We'll figure out some 
other way to tell you to do that here. We're planning over 
Hawaii to read up a few news items for you during your meal, if 
that's okay? 

SPACECRAFT Okay, super idea, and we'll stop the CRT power. 

SPACECRAFT How about for tonight, we can turn them on very 

dim, if you want us to, instead of turning them off over the 
night hour. 

CAPCOM Roger, we'll get back to you on that one. And 

we're going LOS here in about 10 seconds. We'll talk to you 
through Hawaii at 6 + 2 4. 

PAO This is Mission Control, Houston, loss of signal 

at Guam, 6 minutes away from reacquisi tion through Hawaii on 
orbit 37. Comment there that in doing some theodolite 
measurements of the payload bay door hinge line, latch locations, 
they could not see the index mark, which was really a screw head 
at the aft bulkhead, because of interference by the covers for 
the now deployed satellites. So they're moving to an alternate 
index mark that is in view. Return in 6 minutes for Hawaii 
during which the capcom will read up a brief news summary to the 
crew, world news. This is Mission Control at day 2, 6 hours, 18 
minutes .

SPACECRAFT Yeah, go ahead. 



CAPCOM Roger, hope you guys are enjoying your meal here, 

and we've got some news to read up, if your ready to listen. 

SPACECRAFT Stand by, let's get Vance on COMM, he's been off 



CAPCOM Okay. 

SPACECRAFT Actually, we're not eating, we managed to get 
ourselves just enough behind that sequence in the qlow and that, 
and we just got ourselves a little bit behind. We'll be eatinq a 
little later I guess. 



CAPCOM Okay, we understand. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Mike, go ahead. 

CAPCOM Okay, our PAO friends have supplied us with some 

wire service news here. I'll read it off if you're all ready to 
listen. The biggest news is the new secretary of the Communist 
Party, General Secretary of the Communists Party, is Yuri 
Androphov was elected Friday to succeed Leonard Brezhnev. He was 
a former secret police chief. He assumed the general 
secretaryship of the Communist Party in an unusually swift 
transition of power. Only two days after Brezhnev jffered a 
fatal heart attack. The Polish Interior ministry announced that 
(garble) was freed today from the remote government lodge where 
he spent much of the last eleven months in detention, c^nd his 
whereabouts are still a mystery though. The wife (garble) has 
not seen him yet. America's Vietnam veterans are marching down 
Constitution avenue today, giving themselves the welcome home 
parade, the nation (garble) Vietnam war ended. After the march 
the veterans will dedicate the Vietnam veterans monument built by 
the veterans, in honor of the veterans. In Washington, President 
Reagan is ready to announce a brand new East West trade agreement 
with the Europeon allies, a lifting of U.S. trade sanctions 
against the Soviet Union. That were imposed after the military 
crack down in Poland. And locally, 270,000 persons have called 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tll6j GMT 317:18:37 11/13/82 PAGE 2 



the special telephone company 900 number to listen in on the 
shuttle air to ground communications. In sports a group of at 
least a dozen national football league players, including the 
Greg Bigam and Carter Hartwig from the Oilers will comfromt Kd 
Garvey today in what the players consider a last ditch effort to 
save the 1982 NFL season. The Houston Rockets continue their 
perfect season, by losing to the Los Angeles Lakers 127 to 96, so 
they are 0 for 7 now. And, we'll get you football scores as soon 
as they start coming in today. A couple of the big games, Texas 
A&M plays Arkansas and Penn State plays Notre Dame. We'll get 
you those when we can. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Mike, sure appreciate that, that was great. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, the SBS data looks very good 

to us down here. You can switch over to ANIK whenever you like. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Michael we copy that, I had given you 5 
minutes of ANIK just prior to the SBS, look the other direction 
on the tape if you don't find it, I'll switch over to ANIK right 
now . 

CAPCOM Okay, we copy Joe, we thought you were just waiting 

for a comment there. 

SPACECRAFT No, and T'm about to end the SBS data tank right at 
the moment. 

CAPCOM Roger, that's fine Joe, thank you.

SPACECRAFT Roger, there's a third, a very famous football 
game to be played tomorrow, the De-Paul/Wabash game, and I'd like 
that score passed up to me. 

CAPCOM Roger Joe, we've already done the ground work on 

that, and we'll get you that one as soon as we can. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

CAPCOM And you might pass along to Bill here, we know 

there's a De-Paul game and a Baldwin/Wallace game and a Colorado 
game, we havn't been able to find where MIT is playing today. 

SPACECRAFT Thanks. 

SPACECRAFT He won't come home without them Mike. 

CAPCOM And, Columbia Houston, we're 30 seconds from LOS, 

we'll talk to you again through Santiago at 6 plus 54. 

SPACECRAFT Roger that, is that going to a PMC? 

CAPCOM Negative, hadn't planned on it there. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

PAO This is Mission Control Houston, loss of signal at 

Hawaii. Santiago in 21 minutes, extremely low elevation angle

CAPCOM Got you loud and clear. 

SPACECRAFT Houston, Columbia. 

CAPCOM Go ahead Vance. 

SPACECRAFT Mike, since I talked to you last, I've had a 

little bit of wireless COMM problem, unit A seems to have 
failed, unit E I put up to replace it, and I can't seem to get it 
to work. Right now, I'm on unit D, which belongs to Joe. I'm 
going to plug in HIU into the wall unit on the CDR's side, see if 
I can make that work. It appears that it might be something 
behind the wall as opposed to a wireless unit. 

CAPCOM Okay, we understand. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, Vance you might want to 

check the circuit breaker that popped before on panel R15, row F 
they sent you 1 RC audio left circuit breaker, make sure it's 
still in. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, I'll check that. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, while you're back there, we'd 

like to get a caution warning memory clear on panel R13. And a 
water dump tonight, we'd like to dump tank Bravo to 10 percent. 

SPACECRAFT Tank bravo to 10 percent. 

CAPCOM Roger Vance, and when you get a chance, we'd like 

to hear the report on the cabin temperature last night, during 
your sleep period. 

SPACECRAFT Did you copy that? 

CAPCOM That's a negative nob. 

SPACECRAFT Circuit bre aker is popped, are we clear to put it 

back in? 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, we're about 30 seconds from LOS 

here, why don't you wait until we get some data over IOS, we'll 
talk to you over Indian Ocean at 7 plus 22.

caution/warning . 

CAPCOM Roger, Bob, we'd just like a caution/warning 

memory clear on panel R13, please. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, that's easy enough. 

CAPCOM And we didn't copy your transmission, I think you 

were talking about the sleep period last night, the cabin 
temperature . 

SPACECRAFT Standby. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, Dob, if you're still back 

there on R13, we'd like to verify that the parameters 14 and 54 
are still unhibited, please. 

SPACECRAFT Standby. 

SPACECRAFT That's affirmative, Mike, 14 and 54 are inhibited. 

CAPCOM Okay, we understand and we'd also like to get a 

report here on the cabin temperature last niqht during the sleep 
when you have a chance. 

SPACECRAFT Mike, did you copy Vance there, the temperature 

was pretty good last night, we'll probably leave it on full hot 
tonight, for tonight. 

CAPCOM Okay, we copied you, Rob, temperature was good 

last night and you plan to leave it on full hot tonight. 

SPACECRAFT Affirm. 

SPACECRAFT How do you read, now Mike. 

CAPCOM Okay, Vance I got you loud and clear, now. 

SPACECRAFT Now Mike, we completed an alignment, would you 

like the numbers? 

CAPCOM That's a negative, we've already got them down 

here, thank you. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, very good.

hack on when you first noticed you weren't getting coram over that 

DTU there, over the wireless comm, go back and look at a current 
spike there. 

SPACECRAFT That's a little hard to say, Mike. I first 

noticed it on intercom, and I suppose I've been working with it 
for 45 minutes. 

CAPCOM Okay, copy. 

SPACECRAFT It was about the time you were reading us the 

news, Mike, maybe just a little bit before that.

back of the spacecraft here for you. At the moment, we have 
water dump in progress which around sunset is very spectacular, I 
don't know if you can see anything now or not. 

CAPCOM We can't 

SPACECRAFT We'll move the camera over a little bit closer to 
where the dump is incase you can't see it. Right now, up on the 
flight deck, we have Bob working with the theotlelite, he's 
taking some measurements looking into a, part of a (garble) type 
device. Bob you might step down a second and say high to 
everybody. He's really trying to determine if in this position, 
with respect to the sun, we're getting any distortion of the 
spacecraft. And I don't think he knows yet, but he's qetting the 
numbers. Also, we have Bill and Joe downstairs qetting ready for 
the EVA. Before we go to them though, I'd like to sort of 
mention something.

SPACECRAFT (garble) also, we have Bill and Joe downstairs 
getting ready for the EVA. Before we go to them though, I'd like 
to sort of mention something. We have here something that 
commerates the bicennetial of flight, now about 200 years ago, 
specifically in 1783 the Montgolfier brothers in France were 
flying the first balloon, and since then of course we've come a 
long way. And not only in France and America, but around the 
world, so this is a big thing to commerate, and we think it's 
especially appropriate to mention it while we're up here 
travelling about a 160 miles above the earth at 17000 mil. r; a 
hour to show what man's progress has been. President Reagan and 
French President (garble) are both co-chairman of this 
celebration this year. Going on with what were doing here now, 
we might give you a picture of the middeck there, you can see 
Rill and Joe preparing for tomorrow's activity with the EVA , 
there is quite a bit to be done. We see a hatch opened and the 
hatch is right now the passage way into the airlock system, whore 
gear is being taken to prepare the space suit and one thing and 
another, sep switch. Right now, Bill and Joe are handlinq the 
pieces of the space suits helmet and putting defog on and doing 
everything that has to be done to make what is normally a very 
difficult operation during spaco an i :;.> forth. How are you 
getting the picture of the middeck? 



SPACECRAFT Okay, of course, middeck is out livinq quarters 
and (garble). We do experiments down thero, and slopp all 
over the spacecraft. There's a bathroom down in the middeck 
which is off to the side. tip here aqain on the flight deck, why 
we're doing everythinq that has to do with control linq the 
spacecraft and operation of the cargo handling equipment and so 
forth in the middeck. We had a nice picture of the Earth here, 
which I want to jump back too. The cloud patterns up here that 
you can see are just fantastic. Well, Boh and T are qoinq 
downstairs to, and we'll try to qet everybody into the picture. 



SPACECRAFT Okay, we're down here, as you can see in 

weightlessness it's a little hard to get organized. We all have 

to have something to hold onto. It's quite interesting though, 

cause, just call the floor the ceilinq, vice versa, and the qang 

of four here - we have quite a bit of fun in spare time doinq all 



CAPCOM 
here. 



Roqer , Vance, we got an outstanding pictum down

SPACECRAFT Get any of that or did it come out a complete mess? 

CAPCOM You guys got outstanding lighting up there, that's 

a beautiful picture. 

SPACECRAFT Well, it's not such a big room, and we generally 
have it sort of unpacked - we have food, clothing, cameras, 
experiments, you name it.

SPACECRAFT Well it's not such a big room and we generally 
have it sort of unpacked - we have food, clothing, cameras, 
experiments, you name it, all over. So anyhow that's sort of a 
capsule summary of what we are doing up here right now, and we're 
looking forward to the EVA tomorrow. 

CAPCOM Roger Vance, we're losing your picture here, we're 

30 seconds from LOS and I'd like to remind you, you have a PMC 
scheduled at Santiago at 8 plus 27. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, very good. See you later. 

CAPCOM Roger. 

PAO This is Mission Control Houston. Loss of signal 

at Hawaii after a tour of the Spacecraft, and TV of the preps for 
tomorrow's space walks by Lenoir and Allen. 18 minutes until 
reacquisition through the Santiago, Chile tracking station, 
midway through orbit number 38. At day 2, 8 hours 9 minutes, 
Mission Coti f rol Houston. 

PAO Mission Control Houston, we have acquisition 

through Santiago, Chile tracking station. This is Mission 
Control Houston. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston with you through Ascension for a 

few seconds, over. 

SPACECRAFT We copy. 

CAPCOM And be advised there that we'd like to do our tag 

up message here at IOS at 8 plus 59, if that's okay with you 
guys . 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we may not be ready for it, (garble) we'll 

do our best. 

CAPCOM Okay, ano we're about to qo LOS here, we'll talk 

to you through IOS at R plus 59. You might par^s to Joe that Yale 
beat Princeton today, M to 19. 

SPACECRAFT Say that again, 37, 19? Who was that? 

CAPCOM Ya ' beat Princeton, 37 19. 

SPACECRAFT Outstanding , Yal*? beat Pr.nceton. 

SPACECRAFT Mike I've got all those theodolite numbers, I 
guess y«xi iu^ want me to bring them home with me, - ight? 



CAPCOM 



That ' z a f f i r nM t , Bob . 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl21j GMT 317:20:26 11/13/82 PAGE 2 



SPACECRAFT You can tell RMU that I took each measurement 

twice and I got great repeatability, so T think they are pretty 
good . 

CAPCOM Okay, we copy that Bob. 

SPACECRAFT Read you loud and clear, I might have some 

problems with my battery, but they seem to be working. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Bill. 

SPACECRAFT Clear there Joe. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, with you through IOS for 6 
minutes, over. 



SPACECRAFT Columbia. Are you calling? 

CAPCOM Roger Columbia, we're with you for about 5 and 1/2 

minutes now through IOS. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Mike, we just finished the EVA COMM check. 

CAPCOM Roger, we copy. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, we can start our tag up 

topics at your convenience 



SPACECRAFT Okay, go ahead Houston. 



CAPCOM Okay, we've got about 5 minutes left in this pass 

now. The PRSD and vernier RCS and forward COAS CAL all looked 
real good today. No significant stratification effect was seen 
in the PRSD test. Bob's habitability report was very good. We 
lost the sleep configuration comments from Bill and Vance on that 
recorder. We'd like to get your medical VTO comments sometime if 
we could. As far as anamolies, we've got the circuit breakers 
essential 1BC left audio circuit breaker back there popped, we'll 
be looking at that, we'll probably want to reset it, possibly 
looking at an alternate entry configuration. We'd like to find 
out which wireless set Vance is on right now, and if you're 
connected to the OS panel. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, right now I have wireless E down at the OS 
panel, but it's been disconnected since we're setting up that 
panel for the EVA VTR. 



END OF TAPE 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl22j GMT 317:20:26 11/13/82 PAGE 1 



SPACECRAFT Okay, right now I have wireless E down at the OS 

panel but it has been disconnected since we're setting up that 
panel for the ETA VTR stuff tomorrow and right now Joe's off 
headset I'm using - he's off his wireless and I'm using it. 

CAPCOM Roger, we copy. And just a reminder to check the 

OS panel for the sleep configuration when you get around to 
that. And the only other anomaly we got was the water (garble) 
water we saw today, we plan to schedule an inspection later in 
the flight. Right now the humidity level is about 36 percent 
which is about right. As far as sleep configuration we'd like 
you to go ahead and repress the left oms if you would. Just take 
the left oms helium press (garble) 1506 A switch to open about 30 
seconds back to close and that will allow us to check out the 
regs and repress that system after being interconnected to it all 
day. 

SPACECRAFT In left oms you want bravo or alpha, Mike? 

CAPCOM Roger, we'd like alpha open for about 13 seconds, 

Bob. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, how many seconds? 30? 

CAPCOM That's affirmative. 

SPACECRAFT Mike, there's one thing I missed. Something - the 
very end when you wete talking about the OS panel, something you 
want me to do to it. 

CAPCOM Roger. We'd just like to make sure you remember 

to configure that panel in the sleep configuration when you get 
around to doing it. 

SPACECRAFT I think what we'll do is we'll leave it off, we'll 
leave the wireless off of it tonight and we'll - in the morning 
we'll be having it configured for the EVA TV stuff. If that's 
all right. We'll leave it that way tonight. 

CAPCOM Okay, that sounds like a good idea, Vance. You 

can expect a state - state vector good message sometimes during 
the sleep and we also plan to send up a DEU checkout message over 
Guam. Just to make sure you have it onboard if it's necessary. 
If you do have anything you want to put on ICOM tonight a good 
way to do that is to let us know when you've done that is to do 
an 10 reset to the SM GPC and that gives us a DCU bypass SCA 
message down here and we can read that real well. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Is that better than cycling CRT or - okay, 
understand. You don't want CRT's power cycled so we'll remember 
-I'll reset to SM. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl22j GMT 317:20:26 11/13/82 PAGE 2 



CAPCOM Roger, we'd just like to avoid the fast power 

cycle on the CRT's if we can. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston. Be advised we're not going 

to be recording voice during the sleep period here. Unless you 
request it. Use the power cycle to tell us then. Use the IOE 
set on the SM machine to tell us that. And all you're 
consumables are in good shape and we'll probably give you a comm 
delta for EVA tomorrow due to the commander's comm configuration 
there . 

SPACECRAFT Okay, good. That comm hassle was sort of very 

unfortunate just before a real live TV here. 

CAPCOM Roger. Go ahead and close the left oms helium 

press there and we'll talk to you one more time through Guam at 9 
+ 25. 

SPACECRAFT Okay . 

PAO This is Mission Control Houston. Loss of Signal 

through the Indian Ocean Station. Next station which will likely 
be the final contact with the crew before the sleep period will 
be Guam in 19 minutes. Spacecraft now just beginning the 39th 
orbit of the Earth on the 5th flight and that day 2, 9 hours 6 
minutes Mission Control Houston. No, backup one. We're 
estimating an hour from now. The change of shift briefing with 
offgoing flight director Dr. John Cox in the JSC newsroom. 
That's at 4:20 central.

downlink telemetry to the ground station in Mission Control team 
here will be able to look at the health and well being telemetry 
fed down from Columbia. Flight Director John Cox has completed 
tag up with the on coming flight team and Flight Director Garry 
Cullen. And the planing team is now in place at Mission Control 
Center. Dr. Cox will be on his way over to the building 2 news 
center for change of shift briefing at 4:20 p.m. central time. 
This is Shuttle Mission Control. This is Mission Control 
Houston. Mission elapsed time 2 days, 10 hours 7 minutes. The 
channe of shift briefing with flight director John Cox could 
occur as early as 4:40 p.m. central time in the building 2 
newscenter. Less than a minute away from acquisition of signal 
through Santiago, Chile and although we are in the crews sleep 
period, just a few minutes inside their sleep period we 
anticipate that the cap comm will establish voice contact with 
the crew and advise them of changes to the correct - will be 
playing for tommorrow ... 

SPACECRAFT This is Columbia, loud and clear. 

CAPCOM We've got a slight change here for your Vance. We 

thought we'd pass to you before you go to sleep this evening. 
We've had some consultations here in mission control and we're 
going to exercise flexibility that we've built into the flight 
plan for the next couple of days and do your EVA on flight dav 
5. That will give you some things to do on flight day 4 
tomorrow. We worked up the plan already and we're going to pass 
it up to you on your teleprinter review early in the morning. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, understand. EVA the flight day 5, you'll 
pass up a plan for tomorrow on the teleprinter. 

CAPCOM That's affirmative. Basically there's almost a 

swap dav Z for flight day 4 with 3ome changes but they are going 
to be ml n> t and should be no problem. And since we're keeping 
you awake a little bit later tonight, we're going to let you 
sleep in till 18:10 in the morning so you can make up this 40 
minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we'll sleep in till 18:10. 

CAPCOM That's affirmative and we will see you then. 



SPACECRAFT 



Okay, very good. And we're going off the air. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl23j GMT 317:21:25 11/13/82 PAGE 2 

CAPCOM Goodnight, sleep well. We'll see you in the 

morning . 

SPACECRAFT Alright. 

PftO This is Mission Control Houston. CAPCOMM 

announcement to change flight plan day 5 for day 4 which 
effectively changes the EVA from Sunday to Monday morning. 
Decision made here in the control center just to maximize the 
potentials for giving the most possible effectiveness on the 
extra vehicular activity. And further more the advice the crew 
is going to be permitted to sleep in a little bit later than 
originally scheduled for tomorrow morning and changes in the crew 
activity plan which for the most part constitutes an exchange of 
the flight plan and activities for day 5 with those scheduled for 
day 4. And the detailed summary time line will be uplinked to 
the crew's teleprinter during the sleep period and be ready for 
their approval tomorrow morning. Mission elapsed time 2 days, 10

morning, how are you doing? 

CAPCOM We're doing great down here. The Marine Hymm is 

in honor of our two Marines onboard and your recent Marine Corps 
bi r thday . 

SPACECRAFT Okay, well we'll get Bob up, get his comments on 

it there. Thanks for the fine music. 

CAPCOM You're welcome. We're about 1 minute away from a 

short keyhole here at Mila. We'll be with you at Bermuda for 
about another 7 minutes after that. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, fine. 

PA0 Shuttle Mission Control mission elapsed time 2

Columbia pilot Bob Overmeyer, active duty Marine Corps Colonel, 
and Vance Brand began his career as an aviator as a Marine Corps 
pilot. Acquire signal momentarily through Bermuda station as we 
have brief LOS through a keyhole. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, back with you for about 4 

more minutes at Bermuda. 

SPACECRAFT Roger . 

CAPCOM And Vance, we believe we have a copy of all of our 

TPR messages onboard. When you get a chance, we'd like for you 
to make sure you receive message 24 and second copy of message 
25. We're not too sure of the transmission of those pages. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Yes, right now we have just one message 
there that can be used to mark up everybody's CAP's so we could 
get one or two more of that (garble), but we'll see what we're 
going to do. 

CAPCOM Yes, we're trying to get them up to you as fast as 

we can. We were just wondering about the clarity of those two 24 
bravo and the second copy of 25. 



SPACECRAFT Okay. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl25j GMT: 318:05:04 11/14/82 PAGE 2

take the H2 tank 3 heater alpha and bravo to auto. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, that was on Rl 02 tank 3 heater A to auto, 

H2 tank 3 A and B to auto. 

CAPCOM And that's correct. 

SPACECRAFT That's H2 tanks 3 A and B to auto.

minutes through Dakar in Madrid. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Roger, Houston, we're in the midst of 

cutting up slips of teleprinter paper right now. 

CAPCOM Okay, let us know if you need anything else. 

SPACECRAFT Roger, we just got some more paper by the way. 

CAPCOM Yes, we're uplinking the rest of your copies of 

the CAP update. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

CAPCOM And if Joe's listening, DePaul qot beat yesterday 

by Wabash. 

SPACECRAFT Joe ' s off COMM right now, but we'll sure pass it 

on to him. Wasn't like 24 to 0 though, was it? 

CAPCOM Well, it's about the same spread. Tt was 31 to 
6. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

CAPCOM And Colorado beat Kansas 28 to 3. 

SPACECRAFT Glad to hear they came up with a win. 

CAPCOM Think somebody was interested in UCLA score. They 

beat Stanford 38 to 35. 

SPACECRAFT I don't think anybody was interested in UCLA. 

CAPCOM Okay. We'll forget that one. Columbia, Houston,

PAO This is Mission Control, mission elapsed time is 2 

days 18 hours 39 minutes. Columbia on orbit 45, a little more 
than 1 minute from reacqu isi t J .on of signal thru the Indian Ocean 
Station. Plans are presently to cancel the change of shift 
briefing with Flight Director Gary Coen originally scheduled for 
2:50 a.m. Central Time. Plan to cancel that in recognition of 
the fact that events have been rather static since the last 
change of shift briefing. The Flight Activities Office here has 
announced this morning that the morning messages to the crew on 
the teleprinter consumed 12 feet of teleprinter paper, bringing 
the total footage of teleprinter paper used so far in STS-5 to 47 
feet. Crew is in its post-sleep activity period, meaning it's 
reconfiguring cabin lighting, windows, and doing some stowage of 
sleep gear and readying itself, with proper documents for the 
days events. Once again the 2:50 a.m. change of shift debriefing 
with Flight Director Gary Coen has been cancelled, and we are 
standing by for acquisition of signal momentarily thru the Indian 
Ocean station. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, with you for about seven 

minutes at Indian Ocean. Should you need us for anything, we'll 
be standing by 

SPACECRAFT Okay Houston, we copy. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. We're about 30 seconds to LOS 

in Indian Ocean. See you at Yarragadee at 18 57 and there is PMC 
scheduled for Orroral after that.

Jon, we copy. 

CAPCOM Okay. Columbia, Houston, with you at Yarragadee 

for a little less than 7 avid a half minutos.

background. Columbia, Houston, we've qot about another minute 
here at Yarragadee. Surgeon will talk to you over Orroral and 
we'll see you in about 38 minutes at Mila.

SPACECRAFT Okay and have one other comment, followinq the 
align I went to hit an item 19 to start the track maneuvering 
inadvertently I hit the item 19 on SPEC 21, which is a mass 
memory read, thought I'd tell you of the inadvertent keypunch 
there, and ask what the implication is, if any. 

CAPCOM Okay Vance, we'll look into that and I'll get right 

back to you. 

SPACECRAFT Jon, one comment from the aft deck right now, we 
got a little ahead and I'm in the fuel cell purqe and water dump 
at this time, and I noticed that that's a little bit ahead, is 
there any problem with that? 

CAPCOM No, there's no problem with that go right ahead. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, I will hold off vent with that heater 
activation until 2040 per the CAP, is that affirm? 

CAPCOM That is affirmative. 

SPACECRAFT In fact Jon, if he comes down here, will you tell 
me what ho would estimate the many time for that bravo tank dump 
this afternoon. 

CAPCOM Yeah, we'll get you an estimate and get right back. 

SPACECRAFT Yeah I'll appreciate it. I'll set a clock on that. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t!28j GMT 318:07:24 11/14/82 PAGE 2 

CAPCOM And Bob, our best estimate is it's going to !.ake 

about 50 minutes for that water dump. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, that's about what I came up with, so we'll 
just set a time for about 45 and come up and look at it. 

CAPCOM Sounds good. And Vance, we looked into your 

execution of item 19 on SPEC 21 and its no impact. We'll have to 
reupdate our gyro drifts down here, but other than that there's 
no impact, as far as your concerned. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, sorry about that. 

CAPCOM That's alright, it's still early in the morning. 

And Vance if you wouid, we would like for you to select a DAP 
bravo . 

SPACECRAFT Okay DAP bravo. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, we're taking some bets down here, we 

wonder if Bob Overmyer really did sleep through the Marine Corp 
Hymm? 

SPACECRAFT Ah better let him say. The only answer I could 
give would get me in trouble Jon, just get me in trouble. 

CAPCOM Copy that. 

SPACECRAFT The other morning he was the first guy up, he just 
sacked in today. Hey listen Jon, I usually get up early so I can 
get my timeline set. 

CAPCOM Yeah, we copy that Bob.

Did Bob Overmyer really sleep thru the Marine Corp Hymm? 

SPACECRAFT Uh , better let him say. The only answer I could 
give would get me in trouble Jon, just get me in trouble. 

CAPCOM Copy that. 

SPACECRAFT The other morning he was the first guy up, he just 
sacked in today. Hey listen Jon, I usually get up early so I can 

get my sideburns cut. 

CAPCOM Yeah, we copy that Bob. TV yesterday looked like 

you had about a two or throe-day growth. 

SPACECRAFT (Garble) Houston, Columbia. 

CAPCOM Go ahead. 

SPACECRAFT We were all just wondering if Bob would have his 
paycheck waiting for him when he gets back? 

CAPCOM We'll call the dispersing clerk and check on that 

for him. And we've got about 30 seconds here at Bermuda, we'll 
see you over Dakar at 19 57. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, see you there. 

PAO Mission Control Houston. 2 days, 19 hours 55

about 8 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we're reading you a little weak. 

CAPCOM Okay, I quess our first order of business here is 

to turn you over to doctors Holloway, Stewart, Bridges and the 
rest of the ivory team. And we'll see you again tonight. Hope 
you have a good day. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, thank you Jon. We had you with us for a 
lonqer period this morning and good talking to you. We'll see 
you later. 

CAPCOM Yeah, we enjoyed it too, we'll see you tonight. 

SPACECRAFT Just let the planning team know we've digested all 
of the changes and looks like we're off and running for the day. 

CAPCOM That's great. We were hoping we wouldn't load you 

down too bad. 

SPACECRAFT No, we got by fine. Good job. 

CAPCOM Thank you, sir. Columbia, Houston. Vance, I have 

a flight note for you that will affect the burn coming up. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, go ahead. 

CAPCOM Roger, we would like for you to repress the right 

OMS using the A-leg only. 

SPACECRAFT Depress the right OMS using the A-leg only. Bob's 
got that. 

Okay, I'll get it 

CAPCOM Okay, you can do that sometime before the burn, and 

the other note is we would like for you to return to a nominal 
configuration on the right POD, reselect jets R2 delta and R3 
delta. 

SPACECRAFT Do we understand about reselection of jets? The 
way you said normal configuration on the right POD, you were 
referring to jets, not OMS? 

CAPCOM That's affirmative. Just reselecting those two 

jets. And the reason is, looks like R4D heater now is failed OMS 
so its a little hotter than normal and in a way that will 
probably help us out because we won't have any concern about it 
during the no sun tonight.

PAO Mission Control Houston 2 days 20 hours 25 minutes 

mission elapsed time. Columbia's passed out of range of the 
tracking station at Indian Ocean orbit number 46 reacquire over 
Yarragadee about 6 minutes 45 seconds. Earlier this morning 
there was a medical conference the results of which Dr. Sam Poole 
has indicated that Bill Lenoir is improving. Earlier he had, of 
course, experienced some space motion sickness difficulties and 
that was the reason for moving the EVA, swapping out this flight 
day with tomorrow's. He's said to be improving and expected to 
continue to improve during the day. The doctor's instructed him 
to drink fluids and eat light meals. The other crewmembers are 
reported at 100 percent, just feeling fine. Crew is currently 
scheduled to be in a meal period and there are some fairly brief 
activities this morning on the new timeline as revised to reflect 
the change in moving EVA day. In about 30 minutes Commander 
Vance Brand will initiate a maneuver to put the Columbia on the 
starboard sun attitude. About 30 minutes after that, he will 
deactivate the Get Away Special cannister. Later on in the 
morning the Mission Specialists, Allen and Lenoir, are scheduled 
to conduct some of the medical DSO's, the Detail Supplementary 
Objectives. Those are the ones that relate to gathering data on 
eye movements and other vestibular related things that might give 
us some additional information on the response of human 
vestibular system to space. First television this morning is 
scheduled for around 8 a.m. At 2 days 20 hours 28 minutes

in there that's unusual that gave that message do yea at all? 

CAPCOM Bob we don't have any data, could you tell us what 

the message was? 

SPACECRAFT Yeah right after I activated the water steam vent 
I got the SPEC 86 APU hydralic water warning. 

CAPCOM Okay we copy. 

SPACECRAFT I think it's just because it all goes to heater 
bravo on that at the after start and stay in the boiler control 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl31;") GMT 318:08: 54 11/12/82 PAGE 2 

power heater 3 on the bravo and then the control on I think 
that's all that did it. 

CAPCOM Okay 

SPACECRAFT Unless you tell me differently i'm goinq to write 

that off as nominal and I'm going to need to look at it when we 
come over the next S-band site. 

CAPCOM Roger we'll look at that over Orroral Bob we'll be 

coming up there about 42 and just press on for now. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Real pretty view of Australia right now 
Roy. 

CAPCOM Roger copy Bob. 

SPACECRAFT It's so neat I'll tell you, it's so neat. 

CAPCOM Yeah we had FAO draw us a little picture of the, 

picture window view that you had yesterday and we can see why you 
were so impressed. It looked like you were looking at the whole 
continent through the front windows. 

SPACECRAFT Lookinq at the whole world, it's really 

unbelievable. Side Sun attitude, it's an amazing attitude 
looking out the front windows here. 

CAPCOM Bob personally I can't wait to try it. 

SPACECRAFT Let me tell you regardless how long you have to 
wait, it's really worth the wait. I can speak with authority on 
that one. 

CAPCOM Roger I understand Bob. Columbia, Houston, we're 

15 seconds LOS, we'll pick you up at Orroral at 42. 

SPACECRAFT Thank you. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, with you at Orroral for 3 

minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Roy. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, Bob we think cause of that 

message was the fact that you went to water a boiler bravo and 
the water quantities go to zero and so we would expect that 
message. 

SPACECRAFT That's what I ought it was but I just wanted to be 

sure that's the standard.

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. We wondered if you think it 

would be practical to go ahead and do the cell detection 
sensitivity test while you're still set up? 

SPACECRAFT Hey, Roy, right now our middeck habitability - 
wise 'is a disaster area. It takes us a half hour to get it 
cleaned up. Also we got the hatch open since the EVA equipment 
prep is complete. And that's right smack across the path that 
the springs would have to go. 

CAPCOM Okay, we copy and that is what we wanted to 

know. So the answer is no and I guess you can go ahead and 
switch subjects. 

SPACECRAFT Copy that, you weren't near fast enough. I 
already got the electrodes off.

schedule it in the CAP rewrite but we didn't cancel it at Hawaii 
either so we'll let. If you want to do some TV at REV 49 at 
Hawaii then let us know next time around. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Bob, I understand that and what's MET on 
that? 

CAPCOM I don't have it right now, Joe, just a second. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, I don't have a CAP in front of me. That's 
not, you don't, you aren't looking for the student experiments at

correct? 

CAPCOM Yes, that's affirm, Joe, that's 3 hours and 0, 3 

days 0 hours 20 minutes and it's only at your option. Nothing 
required there. Just let us know if you decide to send something 
down. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we've got quite a lot of tape taken, I'm not 
sure we want to sort through it to find some good things. We 
might just try to give you some live from the spaceship Columbia 
scenes out the window and also on the flight deck and on the 
middeck cameras. How's that sound? 

CAPCOM Okay, Joe, but don't let it inter fer with anything 

you've got going. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we're a little more organized today and we 

oughta something set up. But no music today. 

CAPCOM And by the way while you're on the line, your TV 

that you gave us after the tile stuff, that terminator pass over 
Mila was very well received here on the ground. Very impressive 
pictures. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, good, it's awesome to see from orbit it 
truly is. Bob, I was hoping to get a good niqht shot of 
Yarragadee. Last time we went over we're almost vertical to it 
and it would have been a good shot but this one's a little too 
obi ique .

message for Joe here. Reference your 35 millimeter cameras for 
the EVA. Concerned that we might be using up batteries too quick 
and if you can find them we'd like you to go back to the old 
batteries the rest of the day and change back to your fresh 
batteries just prior to the EVA or change it back to night if you 
can. 

SPACECRAFT Bob, I understand that. We'll change to the brand 

new batteries tonight.

SPACECRAFT Right, at the 22 20 timeframe on that message 

update that I have to change DAP A deadband attitude normal to 5 
degrees. What's the DAP number on that. I did not see that on 
the message. 

CAPCOM Standby. Let us sort through some paper down here 

Bob. 

SPACECRAFT Just like to know the DAP number so I can check 

the whole DAP against that. 

CAPCOM Hob, we're about 10 seconds to T.OS here. The 

A... Co3umbia, this is Houston with you through Hawaii for 3 
minutes, Columbia, this is Houston, with you through Hawaii for 
3 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Houston, Columbia, loud and clear. And we're set 

up to start FRS checkout wherever you want it, if you want it, 
and which APU would you like to start up this morning. 

CAPCOM Okay, Vance, we'd ]iko to do the FCS checkout over 

the stateside pass and we'd like to do it on APU number 1. 

SPACECRAFT Copy. Bob we've got number 1 ready to go when we 
hit the states. 

CAPCOM Okay, nob, and in answer to your question that you 

asked me at Yarrngadee LOS. The DAP for this checkout will be 
A. . .

CAPCOM ....stateside pass and we'd like to do it on APU 

number 1. 

SPACECRAFT Copy. And Bob, we've got number 1 ready to go when 
we hit the states. 

CAPCOM Okay, Bob, and in answer to your question that you 

asked me at Yarragadee LOS, the DAP for this checkout will be Al 
and the only change from that DAP that you're in right now is a 5 
degree vs 3 degree deadband for the normal attitude. 

SPACECRAFT I went to 5 degrees for a normal attitude, I think 
already. 

CAPCOM Okay, that's fine, you were in AlO and the only 

change between AlO and Al is that attitude deadband in normal 
jets . 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we've got you 5-degree deadband. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston. 20 seconds to LOS in 

Hawaii, and just a reminder that your water boiler problems, you 
might get a water boiler quantity down arrow, and a red "P" on, 
if your using the A controller on c'.ie into. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

CAPCOM Columbia this is Houston, with you thru Buckhorn 

for 7 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Roger, Bob, we're ready with your prestart comolete 
waiting for your call. 

CAPCOM Okay, you have a go for Aru start. 

PAO Mission Control Houston, crew has the first APU 

running and beginning to proceed thru the flight control system 
checkout . 

CAPCOM Okay, Columbia this is Houston. We see the 

services have quit moving so you're go for the secondary. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Bob. Okay, Houston, we're ready to shut them 
down . 

CAPCOM Okay, Rob. Standby. Okay, Columbia, Bob you can 

go for the APU shutdown. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

PAO This is Mission Control and flight control system 

checkout is being completed and just now shutting off the APU

flight surfaces in that checkout of the flight control system. 
Columbia passing over the continental United States at the 
present time on orbit number 48. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston. In about 10 seconds 

we're gonna go into 1 minute loss of signal and we'll talk to you 
thru Mila. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Bob. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston is back with you thru Mila and 

Bermuda for 12 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Okay, Houston go ahead. Houston, Columbia. 

CAPCOM Columbia, tins is Houston, go ahead. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, at the moment we're on, over OPS 7-14 during 
the MLS tacan tracking test, you might note that range is looking 
out of limits. It did and I recalled that I'd never done a 
(garble) reset so I tried that. It didn't do any good, range and 
igarble) both look out of limits high on all three LOU's, have we 
done something wrong? 

CAPCOM Stand by Vance, we'll have the GNC guys have a look 

at it and get back to you. Vance, would you verify that was a 
tacan test? 

SPACECRAFT That's affirm. We have the tacan set up per the 
way you had it set up in the message. Bob, do you see the sensor 
test on CRT 1, or else I can read you what the values are. 

CAPCOM Columbia, would you check the tacan and see if 

they' re in GPC? 

SPACECRAFT Okay, tacans are in GPC now. 

CAPCOM Okay, you need to do the test in GPC and then go 

back to the other configuration. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, the message said TR. Okay, Bob (garble). 



END OF TAPE 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl37j GMT 318:11:15 11/14/82 PAGE 1 

CAPCOM Okay, well you need to do the test in GPC and then 

go back to the other configuration. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, the message said TR. Okay, Bob, they pass. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston. Another little 

problem. We'd like to look at some data on the RCS soakback so 
if you could give us a sample, please. 

SPACECRAFT You got it? Houston, Columbia. 

CAPCOM Go ahead Columbia, we have 15 seconds. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, SPEC 44, just to verify we want to leave 
entry roll mode switches deselected, checklist. 



That's affirmative, Bob, leave it deselected.

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston, with you thru Dakar and 

Ascension for 10 minutes. Columbia, this is Houston thru Dakar 
and Ascension for 9 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Roger, Bob, we copy. Houston, Columbia, how do 
you read? 

CAPCOM Got you loud and clear Columbia. Columbia, this 

i's Houston, you might make a note that as soon as you get a free 
hind up there we would like to get the three circ problems back 
to GPC mode and start the timers again. 

SPACECRAFT GPC? 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston. We're going to get 

solo weather up to you this pass. It'll take you thru REV 52. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, fine Bob. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston, 20 seconds to LOS at 

Ascension, Botswana will be coming up next at 2 3 2 6. 

SPACECRAFT Check. 

PA0 Mission Control Houston. 2 days 23 hours 19 

minutes mission elapsed time. Columbia has just passed out of 
range of the tracking station at Ascension. Will be reacquiring 
over Botswana in about 6 minutes 45 seconds. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston with you at Botswana for 3 and a 

half minutes. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl37j GMT 318:11:15 11/14/82 PAGE 2 



SPACECRAFT Houston, Roger. And we just completed the STS 

checkout and have a question about something regarding the 
message on checkout. 

CAPCOM Okay, Vance, go ahead. 

SPACECRAB'T Message said, return tacan mode to TR after sensor 
test o. : STS checkout. I guess that's just for entry 
configurations or some other reason. 

CAPCOM Standby one second. 

SPACECRAFT Do you want the antennas, I think you want 
antennas on auto too. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. Vance, in answer to your 

question, the intent of the message was to gather some additional 
data for a tacan DTO. We're out of range of those stations, and 
you can go to the nominal configuration; antennas in auto, tacans 
off. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, fine thanks. 

CAPCOM Columbia, 1 minute LOS. We'll see you at 

Yarragadee at 43. 

SPACECRAFT Good. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston with you at Yarragadee for 8 

minutes . 



SPACECRAFT Roger (garble) . 

CAPCOM And you're five by. 

SPACECRAFT Houston, Columbia. 

CAPCOM Go ahead, Columbia. 

SPACECRAFT I forgot to give you a couple of results of the 

STS checkout. Like to give you some information on page 7-23 
dedicated display input checkout values table. 



CAPCOM Okay, go ahead. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, on both sides of the cockpit, readings were 
virtually perfect and looked real biased, except for the 
following, or negligible bias, and this may be negligible too, 
but I'll give it to you. On the left side, the AMI mach velocity 
read 20.03, that was low value... 



END OF TAPE 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl38j GMT 31.8:12:04 11/14/82 PAGE 1 

SPACECRAFT ...the cockpit readings were virtually perfect 

with real bias except for the following, or negligible biases 
And these may be negligible too but I'll give it to you. On the 
left side the AMI mach velocity read 20.03, that was low value. 
The AMI knots or EAS read 302 on high test. The altitude on the 
AWI read 303 on high test. That's pretty good, but you can just 
give that to the guys at the cape or someplace that are 
interested in that sort of thing. 

CAPCOM Okay, Vance, we copy that and we'll oass it 

along . 

SPACECRAFT And the rest of the tests, everything went very 

nominal. All parts of the test. 

CAPCOM Okay, that's great, we're happy to hear that. 

SPACECRAFT And SUP never allowed that. 

CAPCOM No. Some SUP would have never allowed anything 

like this flight. 

SPACECRAFT That's right. Hey, you can hopefully keep it 

going that way. You can tell Tucker Pierce that his estimate was 
probably better than ours. 

CAPCOM Okay, we'll pass it along and we concur with 

that. Keep it going. Columbia, Houston, if Joe is available I'd 

like to give him some info on the TV pass. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Roy, go right ahead, I'm listening. 

CAPCOM Okay, right now we're set up for TV at Goldstone 

and Mila. The Goldstone AOS is approximately 0 hours 21 minutes 
and that pass is about 6 minutes long. About a 1 minute break 
and then we'll pick you up at Mila for 8 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Roy, we've got the cameras outside, of 
course. We might have a pretty good view then. We have a camera 
on the middeck and we'll turn that on and just see what 
happens . 

CAPCOM 

SPACECRAFT

Okay, Joe, we're looking forward to it. 
Hey, Roy. 
Go ahead. 
Houston . 

Roger, Columbia, go ahead.

SPACECRAFT Make a note that I have been (qarble) 

unsuccessful in finding my 12 coffees. 

CAPCOM Okay, we'll pack you some extra next time. 

SPACECRAFT Roy, he's gotten warm several times but he's never 

found it. 

CAPCOM Okay, way to go. 

SPACECRAFT Maybe you can send them up when we come over 

Mila. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, 45 seconds LOS. We'll see you 

at Hawaii at 0 9. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, see you there. 

PAO Mission Control Houston at 2 days 23 hours 51 

minutes mission elapsed time. Columbia has just passed out of 
range of the tracking station at Yarragadee, Australia. We'll be 
reacquiring over Hawaii in about 17 minutes. Expecting some 
television to come down on this orbit number 49 that the Columbia 
will be starting shortly. Crew has indicated that they have 
their cameras set up and we're not quite sure what the content of 
that TV will be. Probably some in cabin and some Earth views. 
One of the crewmembers made a comment during the last pass that 
things wore looking, on a particular test, things are looking 
very nominal, very smooth and noted that the SIM SUP or the 
person that writes and conducts the simulations premission would 
never have allowed things to go quite that smoothly. Naturally, 
the simulations they try and throw in as many problems as 
possible to give the flight controllers and the crew experience 
in solvinq problems and this flight has gone much smoother than a 
typical simulation. Some conversation there a moment ago between 
the ground and apparently Bill Lenoir who had indicated that he 
was still looking for the 12 Dackages of coffee that he thought 
had been packed for him on this flight. And Joe Allen remarked 
that he'd gotten warm a couple times trying to find those but 
hadn't found them yet. 2 days 23 hours 53 minutes. Be coming up 
on Hawaii in about 15 minutes. This is Mission Control 
Houston .

Mission Control Houston. Mission Control Houston. Have 
acquisition of signal thru Hawaii now for several minutes. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston with you at Hawaii for 8 

minutes . 

SPACECRAFT (garble) and Roy, that TV pass is at Goldstone, 
did you say? 

CAPCOM That's affirmative, Joe. Coming up at about zero 

hours 21 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, be sure you're ready. We'll try to be. 
CAPCOM Okay, we'll work on it. 

SPACECRAFT test 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. We're 30 seconds to LOS and 

we'll be picking you up at Buckhorn at about 2 0. 

SPACECRAFT Roger. 

PA0 Mission Control Houston. We have a brief gap here 

between Hawaii and continental United States. We saw just a 
brief preview of the TV we'll be getting over the states here in 
about a minute and a half. Columbia's on orbit number 49 here, 
and we're a little bit over 3 days into the mission. Standing by 
for reacquisition over the U.S. in about a minute and 20 
seconds. This is Mission Control Houston. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston with you at Buckhorn for about 8 

minutes . 

SPACECRAFT Roger Houston, and the radiators are stowed. 

CAPCOM Okay, Vance, thank you. We see it. 

SPACECRAFT And Roy, do you have your TV set up yet? 

CAPCOM We've got it all set up, I think we're still 

waiting on Goldstone. I'll let you know in a second. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

CAPCOM Okay, Joe. We've got it, we're ready to go. 

1 SPACECRAFT Stand by 

CAPCOM Okay, we've got a good picture. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t 139j GMT 318:12:12 11/14/82 PAGE 2 
SPACECRAFT Do you have a picture, Roy? 

CAPCOM Yes, you must have missed the comment, we've a good 

picture down here. 

SPACECRAFT Uh-oh . 

CAPCOM Yeah, looks like we just had a little problem, 

joe. Doesn't appear to be in our set though. 

SPACECRAFT I think we may have sent you the wrong picture. 
Hang on a second Roy, we're trying. Hoy Roy, how do you hear the 
middeck? 

CAPCOM Your loud and clear and a good sharp picture on the 

middeck . 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Roy. We have a classic picture here of the 
strawberrT drink strawgot left open inadvertently an you see it 
migrated down and formed a bubble. I am going to endevor to trv 
and suck up that bubble. 

CAPCOM That's a very interesting example of crew 

coordination. 

SPACECRAFT Bob's also good at changing cables! He's the chief 
officer in charge of mopping up the condensate. 

CAPCOM I was goinq to say if we have a problem with the 

slurpper we know where to go. 

SPACECRAFT And he works pretty well, Roy, as you could see. 
But that was an honest failure, I had filled that up and 
foraotten to flip the closeout on that straw. So you can see 
we' ve 9 ot the est of it all set up for lunch meal here I guess 
Vance is going to get served (garble) we're pretty free to move 
abound as'you'can tell. You see I've got the IFM rawer open 
down here/and I've got the, on my knee here, the too! caddy, 
we'?e gating the tools ready for the DEU changeout problem. Hey 
Roy, except for the (garble) here in the ceiling, it makes a 
better floor here than the floor. 

CAPCOM Roger. 

SPACECRAFT It still looks like the ceiling. Oh, and here's a 
message from Samantha Lenoir, I think 



END OF TAPE 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl40j GMT 318:12:42 11/14/82 PAGE 1 

SPACECRAFT Roy, except for the (garble) the ceiling makes a 
better floor here than the floor. 

CAPCOM Roger. 

SPACECRAFT Except it still looks like the ceiling. Oh 
there's a message from Vance and Lenoir I think. 

CAPCOM That's a beautiful picture! Columbia, Houston, 

we've got a good picture and no voice. 

SPACECRAFT Oh Houston, hi. Roy, do you still have the TV and 
air to ground? 

CAPCOM Roger we've got a good picture, which one's Lenoir? 

SPACECRAFT Thanks Roy. I couldn't have said it better 
myself. I'm the barefooted one. 

CAPCOM Okay, we've got it now. 

SPACECRAFT And Roy the Sun is just rising, let's take a look 

outside and see if we can see anything. 

CAPCOM Okay, we've got a good shot outside now. 

SPACECRAFT Roy, we can't look into the Sun very well, it's, I 

n we • re getting reflections off the internal lenses of the 
Tv) but therl's a gorgeous, gorgeous Sunrise ana you'll see it 
come up brighter and brighter on Columbia. 

CAPCOM Roger, we can see that Joe, we have a good picture 

of the payload bay. 

SPACECRAFT We're looking forward to going out there tomorrow, 
it looks like it needs some dusting and cleaning. 

CAPCOM Well we can't wait for that activity either and 

we'll be with you early in the morning to get started on that. 

SPACECRAFT The early is almost the n ight bef ore , isn ' t it? 
Meanwhile on the middeck, our trusty commander and pilot are 
having their noon time meal. 

CAPCOM Roger Joe, and we're losing the picture now, we'll 

pick you up in Mila in about a minute and looks more like a 
luxury cruise. 

SPACECRAFT Well we're working hard, we'll see you in about a 
minute. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl40j GMT 318:12:42 11/14/82 PAGE 2 

CAPCOM Roger that. Columbia, Houston, with you through 

Mila for 8 minutes and we have a picture again. 

SPACECRAFT Was there (garble) in that. This will be the first 
of many (garble) on future missions. Somebody's upside down, 
don™w know who. We're not much on talking but we can sure eat a 
lot. These are stewed tomatoes and notice they don't come out 
when you turn them upside down. 

CAPCOM Well it looks like a cozy little home. Joe, I 

didn't know we packed a tropical uniform? 

SPACECRAFT We're going over the desert. We just came across 

Africa and it was warm. 

CAPCOM Okay we understand now. 

SPACECRAFT I was also on Bill's treadmill earlier. I just 
didn't have time to get properly redressed. (garble) also guards 
road crossing. The biggest problem up here is were always 
loosing things, they float off, and you perhaps find them a day 
later. I just.. 

CAPCOM Kind of like the coffee, cream? 

SPACECRAFT Yeah, I think that's an intentional. Nobody will 
fess up to it. 

CAPCOM No, we were talkinq down here most crews mutiny 

against the commander not the first mate. What's going on? 

SPACECRAFT I noticed that. T know that, there may be a 
message there Roy, I'm not sure. Roy, seriously we have not 
found the missing sponge envelop, we are still looking for that. 

CAPCOM Well we have our crew equipment people working on 

the transport room so we can beam you up some new equipment, new 
coffee, and new sponges. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, good. Might mention that we found quite a 
bit of humor in the books that somebody must have put in some 
jokes and things and I keep coming across these things. I non t 
believe we've found them all yet. 

CAPCOM Are you talking about the FAO procedures? 

SPACECRAFT Yeah, that's right. (garble) extra write in 



END OF TAPE 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl41j GMT 318:12:50 11/14/82 PAGE 1 

SPACECRAFT ... keep coming across these things. I don't know 

whether we thought of all yet. 

CAPCOM Are you talking about the FAO procedures? 

SPACECRAFT Yes, thats right. (garble) the extra write in. 

CAPCOM Well, I'll pass that along to Mike Coats. I think 

he had a hand in that or course, Mike's got a new assignment now. 

SPACECRAFT Yeah. Well, he sure did do a good job. They - 
how much time do we have before this pass is over? 

CAPCOM We've got about 4 minutes remaining. 

SPACECRAFT (Garble) . could you see our signs? 

CAPCOM We can see the sign, but we can't read it. It's a 

little out of focus. Okay, we're ... focusing in on it now. All 
right. 

SPACECRAFT (Garble) to fix it. 

CAPCOM Well you guys certainly lived up to that motto. 

Okay, that's a great picture outside. Absolutely gorgeous color 
down here. 

SPACECRAFT And now, we're out over the ocean again, Roy. 
CAPCOM Okay, that really beautiful, Joe. 

SPACECRAFT The Bahamas, the waters around them have fantastic 
colors in them. Just all beautiful colors of shades of green and 
blue . 

CAPCOM We can see a part of that down here; very good TV 

picture today. Okay, Columbia that camera is blooming a little 
bit, shifting colors on us, probably because of the highlight. 
And we have just lost your TV picture, be with you for a few more 
minutes with comm and we all really enjoyed the show this morning 
and want to thank you for sharing a part of your life with us. 

SPACECRAFT And fun for us, Roy, thank you. 

CAPCOM And we're looking forward to some TV of the 

students experiments here in the next couple of passes. 

SPACECRAFT Roger that. 



CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. We're 30 seconds LOS. We'll 

see you at Dakar at 47.

PA0 Mission Control Houston, 3 days, 0 hours, 38 

minutes, mission elapsed time. Columbia's just past out of range 
of the tracking stations. During that last past over the U.S., 
got some good TV showing the crew enjoying all the comforts of 
spacecraft. We'll be picking up again in about 8 minutes over 
Dakar and Ascension. And we're expecting some more TV on each of 
the next two orbits, 50 and 51. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, with you through Dakar and 

Ascension for 8 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Houston, Columbia, loud and clear. 

CAPCOM And your* re 5-by. 

SPACECRAFT I guess this has probably been reported before a 
lot on other missions but we're sure seeing a lot of smoke coming 
from what appears to be brush fires over Africa and at nighttime 
you can see some of the fires too.

Botswana for 8 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Roger, Houston, loud and clear. 
CAPCOM Same here. 

SPACECRAFT Roy, Bob has gotten into that IFM cable switch and 
Bill's up there working with him. We've by and large finished up 
on lunch. And I'll probably....

electronics unit cable change out.

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston with you through 

Yarragadee for 6 minutes, standing by. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Bob. 

SPACECRAFT Bob, what's the AOS Hawaii time? 

CAPCOM Let's see the next Hawaii pass is 0145. 

SPACECRAFT And that's the pass that you want the student 
experiment's at, is that right? 

CAPCOM Yes sir, that's it. 

SPACECRAFT Bob, this is Joe, how do you read? 

CAPCOM Loud and clear Joe. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we're behind a little bit in the time down 
here, and what I think I'll do, if it's okay with you all is, 
we'll talk about the convection in, I'm sorry, about the 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl42j GMT 318:13:12 11/14/82 PAGE 2 

formation of crystals and growth of porifera and get them started 

and then I'll have to postpone slightly the convection in zero g, 

because we've got to get that set up, move treadmills and all 
sorts of things like that. 

CAPCOM Okay Joe, we understand. 

SPACECRAFT And Bob, if you got a second, I wonder if you 
could take a question and run it by Frank Janes. 

CAPCOM Ready to copy, go ahead Bob. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, I understand the procedure for the DEU swap 
over of the cables. I wonder if, the way I would like to do it 
is the way you do a car, or something like that, is I would 
propose a swap connector for connector. In other words, take the 
connector off DEU 2 and then put it over to DEU 4, one at a time 
so that I don't have to mark each one with tape and mark the J 
number etc., I think there might be enough cable to allow me to 
do that. With power off tne DEUs I assume it would be okay, but 
I would like that to be confirmed that I could that if I want to. 

CAPCOM Okay Bob, we'll check with the IFM folks and with 

the DPS folks and see if any of them have a problem with that. 

SPACECRAFT Did you understand what I would like to do? Just 

swap cable for cable as I go. 

CAPCOM Yes sir, that's clear. 

SPACECRAFT With any of them back on the broken BEU. 
CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston. 

SPACECRAFT Go ahead. 

CAPCOM Concensus here is that it's okay to change 

connector for connector, with the (garble) when you get down to 
changing connectors 8 and 10, they are wire wrapped pretty close 
together so you change them as a pair. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. I just think I'd like to do that, I think 
it will save us some bother, especially since we're not moving 
the DEUs at all. 

CAPCOM Sounds like a great idea to me. 

SPACECRAFT It's just a typical Saturday in the Overmyer 
household working on my cars. 



CAPCOM Yes sir, sounds like you've got your firing order 

messed up on your distribitor just like I have, huh? 



STS-5 AIR/GRCUND TRANSCRIPT t!42j GMT 318:13:12 11/14/82 PAGR 3 

SPACECRAFT That's right. When we get the DEU changeout, 
we're going to jump right into the water surge thing, Bob. 

CAPCOM Okay, Bob we copy thct. 

SPACECRAFT Had a little concern a little while ago much of 
the water coming up around the LiOH cannisters here was quite 
yellow. Hoping somebody just spilled their lemonade. 

CAPCOM Ves sir, I understand. 

CAPCOM Columbia, we're 30 seconds to LOS, we'll talk to 

you next through Guam, at 0132.

CAPCOM Columbia, we're 30 seconds to LOS. We'll talk to 

you next through Guam at 0132. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Bob, 

PA0 ...involved with the display electronics unit 

cable changeout. Allowed about 2-1/2 hours in the timeline for 
that for the commander and the pilot and mission specialists are 
working on the convection currents student experiment. We re 
expecting to get some TV on that, I guess as we come up on 
Hawaii. That's in about another 18 minutes at 3 days, 1 hour, 26 
minutes. This is Mission Control, Houston. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston with you through Guam 

for 7 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. We're with you Houston. 

CAPCOM Joe, could you give me some estimate on how long 

it will take you to get the convection experiment set up? 

SPACECRAFT We don't Bob. I don't know. We'll, are you 
looking at tryiny to get the TV? 

CAPCOM Yes. We've got a young scientist by the name of 

Scott Thomas up here in the MOCR with us now that's mighty 
interested in seeing that, but just don't want to interfere with 
your flow. 

SPACECRAFT Oh, I understand that and as soon as we finish the 
first pass I'm going to start on the experiment and with every 
AOS I can give you a report even if we don't have a visual on it. 

CAPCOM Okay. Mighty fine Joe. 

SPACECRAFT I'm glad the expert's there though. 

CAPCOM Joe, is there any chance of giving us TV on rev 51 

of the convection? 

SPACECRAFT What's MET on that, Bob? 

CAPCOM Standby Vance. It looks like about, say 3 hours 

and 19 minutes or so. Columbia, we show an AOS at Hawaii for 
that rev 51 pass as being 0321. 

SPACECRAFT Joe says he can have it by then. 

CAPCOM Okay. Mighty fine. 



CAPCOM 



Columbia, this is Houston. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl43j GMT 318:13:43 11/14/82 PAGE 2 
SPACECRAFT Go ahead Houston. 

CAPCOM Yeah Bob, we still see some power on DEI 4. Just 

a reminder that before you star, pulling cables on that guy, we'd 
like to get the power off of it. 

SPACECRAFT Yeah. We understand. Bob left the power on while 

he was pulling that front panel off, then he's going to kill the 
power . 

CAPCOM Okay. We understand. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. 30 seconds to LOS at Guam. 

Hawaii is next at 32. 

CAPCOM Make that Hawaii at 45. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston with you through Hawaii 

for 8 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Houston. Loud and clear. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, and Houston, do you see our TV now? 

CAPCOM That affirm Vance. We've got a good TV picture. 

SPACECRAFT Ok.iv, Dr. Allen is in the wings here and he'll be 

on stage in about 2 seconds. 

CAPCOM Houston, this Joe. Do you read me? 

CAPCOM Yeah Joe. We've got you loud and clear. Watching 

you over there, over by the lockers. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Bob. As you know this is a space shuttle set 
of lockers we have over on a different side of the spacecraft 
behind the dedicated flight instrumentation here. We're carrying 
on this flight 3 different student experiments which is a lot of 
fun for us to carry and we're very pleased to have a chance to 
carry them. I thought I'd just briefly run through what they 
are. They're in thest 2 lockers and in the top of....

STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl44j GMT 318:14:04 11/14/82 PAGE 1 

SPACECRAFT ...the first is an experiment that belongs to 
Michael issel of Wallingford Connecticut. Michael's a freshman 
at American University now, but was in high school when ™ e 
suggested this. It's an experiment right here and it is a growth 
of a crystal experiment in 0 gravity. Since it's in 0 gravity, I 
don't want to move it out and shake it because the crystal is 
forming right now. We turned on shortly after we got onto orbit 
here and I won't move it out and I'll be very careful when I move 
this one above it. The 2nd experiment is this one which 
officially called, or known as the growth of ponfera 
experiment. It's really growing sponges if you will. They don t 
look much like sponges, but they are a sponge solution and it is 
an experiment proposed by a young man named Aaron Gillette trom 
Winterhaven, Florida. Aaron has a theory that sponges grow using 
the force of gravity to help them, and we're testing that by 
permitting sponges to grow here, if they will grow, but perhaps 
without gravity, they won't grow so well. We have started a 
number runs. I thought I would start what Aaron calls run number 
5 right now, which consists of releasing a special kind of growth 
chemical into the sponge solution and I will do that right now 
and please note, please note the Mission Elapsed Time so that 
Aaron can put that into his log book. 

CAPCOM Joe, we've lost your audio. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. I've started 2 samples from run number 5. 
This is sort of a two-handed job right now is the problem. And 
this is the 3rd sample. Okay Bob, we've done that part of 
Aaron's experiment. I'm going to leave it now. We'll come back, 
I'll come back several times during the rest of the mission to 
start still other runs and then he'll examine the sponges when we 
return to planet Earth later on. Let me close this up now very 
carefully. Bob, the 3rd experiment is quite a complicated one 
contained here. It has to do with convection, or the motion of 
fluid in 0 gravity. And I'll disappear momentarily pull it out 
and get an initial look at it, show you an initial look at it. 

CAPCOM It looks like a rather sophisticated piece of gear 

Joe . 

SPACECRAFT Roger that. (garble). We'll snap this down to the 
floor and then use a series (garble) placed in heater pans to see 
if fluid in 0 g convects, that is that they move themselves in 
the way it does at 1 g and, of course, we think it will not and 
indeed it should form patterns that are quite dissimilar to what 
we see in similar experiments on Earth. We don't know exactly 
what to expect. We're going to set this up right now and we 11 
report back to you as soon as we can. This is an experiment that 
was suggested by Scott Thomas and I am pleased that Scott's with 
you right there right now and if I have any questions, we'll be 
talking to you very shortly over the next few hours. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl44j GMT 318:14:04 11/14/82 PAGE 2 

I'm reminding you that Scott's from Pennsylvania, Johnstown, 

Pennsylvania and is now in Richland High School. He was in 
Richland High School. He's now a freshman at Utah State 
University.

CAPCOM Okay, Joe. We've got 20 seconds till LOS. It'll 

be a short LOS about 2 minutes and we'll see you at Goldstone. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Bob. Look forward to seeing you later. And 
let me see about getting this ready. We'll report back shortly. 

PAO Mission Control Houston, 3 days 1 hours 53 minutes 

mission elapsed time. Just completed that pass over Hawaii where 
we got some downlink television of mission specialist Joe Allen 
reviewing the student experiments onboard. We have 3 of the 
students experiments and 1 of the student experimenters is here 
in mission control this morning watching that. Scott Thomas 
who's experiment was explained there at the last convection in 
zero-g and Mr. Gil Moore of Cycall, Utah. Mr. Moore is the was 
the purchaser of the first getaway special which had experiments 
about 9 student experiments, from Utah State University that flew 
on earlier Shuttle flights. We'll be reacquiring in about 45 
seconds as Columbia passes over the western edge of the tracking 
stations in the continental United States on orbit number 50. 3 
days 1 hours 54 minutes mission elapsed time. This is Mission 
Control Houston. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston. We'll be talking to 

you through Buckhorn for about 8 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Roger, Houston, Buckhorn. 

SPACECRAFT Tom, would you remind me which of those 2 

connectors you felt I had to flop simultanously . 

CAPCOM Bob, those are J8 and J10. No problem in 

recognising them. They're just wrapped too closely together in 1 
wire bundle for you to move them separately. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, understand. 

CAPCOM That's just a fisical wrapping constraint, not any 

problem. Okay, Columbia. We got a TV picture now through 
Goldstone . 

SPACECRAFT See a good picture. (garble) everything has to be 
somehow tied down here, we're using the famous gray tape to tie 
down the experiments. 

CAPCOM Roger that. I don't think the world could 

function without gray tape of some sort. 

SPACECRAFT That's right. That's why it makes it really 
harder to do a lot of things up here because you can't ever 
really use two hands unless you somehow have yourself tied down 
too. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl45j GMT 318:14:11 11/14/82 PAGE 2 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston. We're ready for the 

APU cooling system off now. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Houston, we'll get that for you. Okay, 
check pan heat thumbwheel 0000. Check experiment power off, 
heater select 1, heater off, (garble) heater, off. 

CAPCOM Joe, when you get around to it, I'd like you to 

check ovor on the pans also. 

SPACECRAFT Say again. 

CAPCOM I'd like you to check the acoustics on the pans 

over there when you get a chance also. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Bob, I think it's coming on. It's 
interesting that the orbiter is noisy enough, it's really very 
hard to tell but we think it's there. Okay, Joe, let's repeat 
for (garble) 2 (garble) select 2 and (garble) on. 

CAPCOM Columbia, we're 2 seconds to LOS. We'll be 

leaving Goldstone. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, (garble) 2 is definitely there. 
SPACECRAFT Roger, Goldstone. 

SPACECRAFT Heater select 0. Experiment power on, check the 

lights on. Check TV set up before starting. 

CAPCOM Columbia, we're back with you through MILA for 

about 3 1/2 minutes of picture. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. And Bob, we're saying that... 
END OF TAPE 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl46j GMT 318:14:22 11/14/82 PAGE 1 

CAPCOM Columbia, we're back with you through Mila for 

about 3 and 1/2 minutes of picture. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

SPACECRAFT And Bob, we're setting up the other TV now, so we 
can record the data. 

SPACECRAFT And Bob, Columbia. Please repeat that last thing 
you gave me about 5 minutes ago, I got busy with the TV and I 
couldn ' t ... 

CAPCOM Okay Vance, the only thing we wanted was get the 

APU cooling system off on panel R2. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

SPACECRAFT It's off Houston. 

CAPCOM Okay Vance. 

SPACECRAFT And Bob, are we cleared to turn payload Aft main B 
off? 

CAPCOM Okay Vance, your go on that. 

SPACECRAFT Thank you. 

CAPCOM Vance, if you get a chance, we're ready for the 
APU controller pwr off, also. 

SPACECRAFT Roger. 

SPACECRAFT It's off. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston. We're taking control 

of your camera here for a bit. 

SPACECRAFT Bob, if you want it pointed differently, just 

holler. 

CAPCOM Okay Bill. 

CAPCOM We're 20 seconds to LOS, we'll talk to you next 

through Ascension at 0224. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, very good. 

SPACECRAFT We'll see you there and next stateside pass, we 
should be ready with some good TV here. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl46j GMT 318:14:22 11/14/82 PAGE 2 
CAPCOM Outstanding. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston with you through 

Ascension for 5 and 1/2 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Houston, just made a fantastic pass right 
along the coast of South America, and entering the South Atlantic 
anomaly at this time, be passing over South Africa shortly. 

CAPCOM Okay, we show your well clear of the South 

Atlantic anomaly, so no need to worry about the microwave oven on 
this pass. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we'll take off our shielding then. 

SPACECRAFT nob, you might have them get ready a fourth, oak 
leaf culture for Bob's male dexterity award. 

SPACECRAFT This one can be for real, looks like he has 
succesfully swapped out the DEUs. 

CAPCOM We were all worried about that Bill knowing who 

was changing it. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, I think we have enough band aids on board. 

SPACECRAFT Bob, we just took a VTR TV coverage of the East 

coast of South America from Venezula to the Eastern tip of 
Brazil. 

CAPCOM Ought to be spectacular, looking at your ground 

trace here on the plot board. 

SPACECRAFT And we got good Hasselblad coming through the 

whole pass too. And Bob this is the friendly PLT up here and if 
I can be serious for a moment, I would like to say yes we got the 
DEU swap over done, and we do have my DEU for landing which is a 
great help for me, I'd like to express my appreciation to an 
awful lot of guys who worked awful hard on that in flight 
maintenance down there. A couple of names come to ™ nd . n 
immediately, of course, Frank Janes, and Bill (garble) down there 
in CF and I sure do appreciate their words und their training 
effort, and I think we did some good work. So I'd really like to 
pass on some good thoughts to those guys. Okay? 

CAPCOM Okay Bob, we'll pass them on, and all of us down 

here feel a little bit more comfortable with 3 CRTS in the front 
for entry also. While we've got you on this pass, we'd like to 
have either Joe or Bill check that middeck experiment on the 
convection flow and make sure that that box is securely taped 
down on all four corners. The experimenter here says that is 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl46j G'.T 318:14:22 11/14/82 PAGE 3 

very critical to his experiment, make it as riqii a; «.->ssible on 
the floor. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Bob, we'll do that. Let's say it's in work. 

CAPCOM Okay. 

SPACECRAFT Bob, I Tell Scott no bumps, no jiggles. 

CAPCOM Okay Joe, he has been informed. 
END OF TAPE 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl47j GMT 318:14:45 11/14/82 PAGE 1 

SPACECRAFT Bob, one thing I aid notice, on both the DEU's 
there's an air, (garble) filter screen, apparently some sort of 
air Clow by them on each side and both those screens are }ust 
completely clogged with wind. There is virtually no air flow 
going on in either DEU . 

CAPCOM Bob, did you get them all cleaned out while you 

were in there? 

SPACECRAFT Yes sir. 

CAPCOM Mighty fine. 

CAPCOM And Bob, did you have any trouble with getting 

cables tangled up as you were making that one for one swap? 

SPACECRAFT Okay, it worked fine. I had to, I had to cut a 
number of tie wraps probably more than you expected, but that 
made them break free. It really wasn't any problem at all. One 
for one. 

CAPCOM Okay. We might have to work on changing that 

procedure then. That sounds like a pretty good idea and not have 
to tag all that stuff. 

SPACECRAFT It sure made it a lot faster, I guarantee you that. 

SPACECRAFT As far as I'm concerned, Bob, Bob Overmyer gets the 
repairman of the week award. We're sure glad to have those 3 
tubes when entry time comes. 

CAPCOM Yeah. We'll second that. 

SPACECRAFT It's the first I've seen (garble) a very good trip. 

CAPCOM I think I heard Paul Harvey once say that the best 

apples grew under the tree that had the most sticks under it. 

SPACECRAFT We have to let Bob answer that one. 

CAPCOM I'll explain it when you get back down. 

SPACECRAFT (garble) 

CAPCOM Columbia, we're about 5 seconds to LOS. Talk to 

you next at Botswana. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. See you there. 

PAO Mission Control, Houston. 3 days, 2 hours, 31 

minutes Mission Elapsed Time. Columbia in a brief gap between 
the Ascension Island tracking station and the one at Botswana. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl47j GMT 318:14:45 11/14/82 PAGE 2 

Will be reacquiring in about 3 minutes. Bob Overmyer on that 
last pass reported that he has completed the replacement of the 
display electronics unit which will enable him then o have 3 
operable CRT's or display tubes up on ^e flight deck Cor 
entry. That procedure was done in about half the time that was 
a?loted for i? during the, in today's crew activity plan and he 
complimented some of the procedures people on the ground who 
worked out the operations for that changeout. We've been seeing 
some television of some of the student experiments, particularly 
the convection in 0 g and Joe Allen primarily working on that 
one. Columbia is currently on orbit number 50 and we would be 
expecting a little bit more television on orbit number 51 in 
about an hour. 3 days, 2 hours, 33 minutes Mission Elapsed 
Time. This is Mission Control, Houston.

very clogqed. Heavy with lint and I went ahead and cleaned those 
off as far back as I can reach my hand.

next at 06. 

SPACECRAFT Copy . 

PA0 Mission Control Houston. 3 days 3 hours 5 minutes 

mission elapsed time. Columbia about to pass within range of the

scheduled as they pass over Hawaii in about another 15 minutes. 
This is Mission Control. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. With you at Guam for 8 minutes. 

SPACFCRAFT Hi Roy . Joe is down in the middeck working on the 
convection experiment right now and the other three of us are 
helping him. 

CAPCOM Sounds like you got plenty of help on that one. 

SPACECRAFT I'm sorry, Roy. How do you copy now? 

CAPCOM Okay, your 5-by and we copied all that. 

SPACECRAFT And Roy, I need all the help I can^get^ ^^yery 



interesting. I checked the pan and all those without exceptions 

... - ■ . ^ i i i i ~ _ u u ^ 1 -, Kill- rampr ir 




CAPCOM We're anxious to see a picture of that, Joe. But 

good description and I think I can understand what you are 
saying . 

SPACECRAFT What site are you talking to us through right now? 
CAPCOM We're talking through Guam now. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, wo got them on video tape. We can ship you 
later maybe some live even. 

CAPCOM Okay, Joe. I guess we were planning on getting 

live TV at Hawaii coming up at 20. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Roy. Joe's using both hands right now so 
I» 11 answer for him. You know what? Houston, tiiifl is Columbia, 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl48j GMT 318:14:56 11/14/82 PAGE 2 



CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. Go ahead. 

SPACECRAFT Roy, I think we may be learning more about 
convection and the behavior of the fluids than maybe we wanted to 
know. When the fluid is injected in once again it stays 
atmospherical. I can give it to - inject very very slowly, the 
minute the upper part of it touches the top plate, the fluid then 
crawls over the top plate to form a circular pattern there till 
we wind up with a solid geometrical figure that is circular at 
the top circular at the bottom with a tapered wait inbetween. 
Now and that's happened on 3 of the 6 pans. Now, I've continued 
with the convention try as yet and I'm on pan 7. We've seen no 
head of a convention pattern whatever. Which may be what we 
might have expect. 

CAPCOM Okay, Joe. Thanks for the comments. The 

experimenter is evaluating your comments and we may have some 
recommendations for you here in a few minutes. Columbia, 
Houston. Joe, where are you in the sequence now? What number? 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Roy. We've just finished sequence Charlie. 
We're about to search sequence Delta. 

CAPCOM Roger, we copy. And Columbia, Houston. On this 

npxt sequence we would like for you to insert the needle so that 
it is pointing down toward the wall and inject it very slowly 
such that the fluid would impact the wall ... 



END OF TAPE 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl49j GMT 318:15:32 11/14/82 PAGE 1 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, on this next sequence we 

would like for you to insert the needle so that it is Pointing 
down toward the wall, and inject it very slowly, such that the 
fluid would impact the wall with a very low velocity as you re 
putting it in. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Roy, I understand that. We have injected the 
fluid very, very slowly, and believe me it - the surface tension 
loses the battle with, I should say the (garble) action loses the 
battle with the surface tension. I will however try to inject it 
along the wall to see if I can't force it around the wall. 

CAPCOM Okay Joe, and we're going LOS, and we'll see you at 

Hawaii at 21. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

SPACECRAFT Just helping Joe. 

PA0 Mission Control Houston, 3 days 3 hours 15 

minutes, Mission Elapsed Time. We had loss of signal with 
Columbia through the Guam tracking station. We acquire over 
Hawaii in about 5 minutes, we're hoping to get some Television. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston with you at Hawaii for 8 minutes, 

and we have a TV picture. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston while your adjusting the TV, if 

there's someone on the flight deck, I'd like to put in a request. 

SPACECRAFT Go ahead. 

CAPCOM Roger, we'd like to have a GNC SPEC 1 for some 

variable parameters and we'd like you to do a SPEC 21 in resume 
and get the star trackers working again. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, we need for you to leave up 

SPKC 1 for a while, while wn send them up. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Roy. 

SPACECRAFT Roy, how lnn'j are you with us at this time? 

CAPCOM We've got you for about 5 more minutes Joe. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, what TV (qarble) call that now? 

CAPCOM Okay, we're looking at the experiment. And 

Colubmia, Houston, Vance, we would like for you to leave a GNC 
SPEC 1 up on the CRT for awhile. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl49j GMT 318:15:32 11/14/82 PAGE 2 



SPACECRAFT SPEC 1. 
CAPCOM Thank you . 

SPACECRAFT Okay Roy, a couple of comments about the 
experiment. We injected the liquid as you said, it is amazing as 
liquid is injected it will grow what looks to be a blister and 
whatever side of the clump of liquid is already there. The 
blister has an amazing memory that is to say, it stays for a long 
long time, and the curved service that is here right now as has 
property of reflecting light almost any direction back into *he 
TV, so it is very difficult to get a reasonable picture, TV 
picture. However, if you can see number 2, I think we have the 
start of a very strange convection started here. It has 3 ridges 
along it, it's very unlike the source of convection patterns that 
are seen on the ground, however, very unlike it, almost looks to 
be the reverse. And his heaters lights have gone out now, we'll 
continue to take data on pam 1 and 2 for another minute before we 
go on to the next run. 

CAPCOM Roger Joe, we have a fairly good picture of that. 

We'd like to know which pan is being heated currently. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, I'll put my finger beside the two pans that 
up until a moment ago were being heated. 

CAPCOM Okay, we see those. 



END OF TAPE 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl50j GMT 318:15:44 11/14/82 PAGE 



CAPCOM Okay. We see those. 

SPACECRAFT I'm pointing to pan 1 and 2 and during the heating 

process, the ridge that you see along pan 1, and let me trace it 
with my finger. 

CAPCOM Okay. We can see that very well Joe. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. That ridge grew during the time it was 

heated. Now the heating has stopped, the lights are out at the 
moment. Pan number 2 has 3 ridges that met at the center and let 
me outline them. 

CAPCOM Okay. We see that also, Joe, very well. 

SPACECRAFT It's a really most peculiar behavior. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, the experimenter would like for 

you to tap the side of the box so that we can record the 
behavior . 

SPACECRAFT I'll do that, but I promised him no bumps or no 
j iggles . 

CAPCOM Okay. 

SPACECRAFT Roy, if you're here for another minute. Tot me 
try to inject pan number 3 and just watch the injection go in. 

CAPCOM Okay. We've got you for just exactly a minute. 

And actually, if you wanted to wait, we will be coming up over 
Goldstone and we'll have about 3-1/2 minutes there. Okay, we see 
it though. Go ahead. Do it towards the wall Joe. Okay. We're 
going to lose you now and we'll pick you up at Buckhorn at 30. 

PAO Mission Control, Houston at 3 days, 3 hours, 28 

minutes. Columbia is just out of range and we've lost the TV 
picture coming over Hawaii. We'll catch the edge of the 
Goldstone station in about a minute and 4S seconds . Mission 
specialist, Too Allen, obviously taking groat interest in the 
student experiment, convection or this heavy viscositv oil that 
they're injecting into the units on this experiment. This 
particular experiment requires a bit more time than the other- 
two, one of which occasionally requires that they attend to the 
sponges and then mostly leave them on their own and the crvnt.il 
unit which pretty much is turned on and left to grow. We're on 
orbit number SI at 3 days, 3 hours, 2<l minutes and we will 
reacquire communication in about a half a minute or «?o. This is 
Mission Control, Houston. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston with you at Uuckhorn for r i 

minutes. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t!50j GMT 318:15:44 11/14/82 PAGE 2 



SPACECRAFT Okay. We got you. 
CAPCOM Okay. You're 5-by. 

SPACECRAFT (Garble) . Roy, let us know when you get TV 

through Goldstone. 

CAPCOM Roger. I'll let you know when we're configured. 

We still don't have a picture yet. Okay. We have a picture now. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Roy. I'm going to continue injecting 3. 

Okay Roy. I've managed to inject 3. It is completely around the 
pan now. Pan number 4, by the away, is one of those that grew 
the mushroom (garble) and I'm going to inject E4 into it but the 
mushroom just grows inside and then I will start this (garble) . 

CAPCOM Okay Joe. We copy. 

SPACECRAFT And you'll notice, perhaps you can see that the 

surface tension inside, the resistance to it spreading is so 
great that the liquid would prefer to walk back up the needle of 
the syringe and out the hole than enter the pan and that's 
basically what it's doing here on pan 4. I think in order that 
you see (garble) . 

CAPCOM We hear you Joe. Go ahead. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. I think in order that you maybe see this, 

I'm going to go ahead and start this (garble) and we'll see what 
happens to pans 3 and 4. I'll continue to try and check pan 4 
while the heaters are running. 

CAPCOM Okay. That sounds good Joe. We've got about 2 

minuter, of TV left. Okay Joe. About a minute left. 

SPACECRAFT (Garble).

CAPCOM Okay, that sounds good, Joe. We got about 2 

minutes of TV left. Okay, Joe. About a minute left. 

SPACECRAFT (garble) adjusting the numbers. Roy, on (garble) 
and 3 which is the interesting one. 

CAPCOM Okay, we see it, Joe. Okay, Joe. We lost your 

picture and we'll be going LOS in about 45 seconds and then we'll 
pick you up at Botswana about 10 after. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, I'll keep you posted and we'll finish this 
experiment shortly, bring the data tapes home and we can talk 
about it later. 

CAPCOM Okay, well that was great letting us participate in 

the experiment and thank you very much. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston. With you through 

Botswana for 7 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, loud and clear. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, for Bob we'd be interested to know 

the outcome of the DEU checkout SSR 14 if you've done it yet. 

SPACECRAFT Say again please. I guess I didn't do it yet, 
Bob. All I did was turn on the C - all I did was turn on the CRT 
and it worked ai..'. its called up specs and its working fine. I 
haven't done anything else. 

CAPCOM Okay, Bob. When you get a chance, we would like to 

go ahead and do this SSR14 just to get a full complete checkout 
of the system, make sure it's talking to all the keys and 
everything is going okay. 

SPACECRAFT I'm sorry I missed that, Bob. I got doing that ARS 
inspection by the way. And we (garble) and found about 2 or 3 
ounces of water, thats all nothing significant. We mopped that 
up. To me like the problem area in particular of the why the 
outer side of those. There was a significant amount of water 
around each of the ducts on the exterior of the ducts right at 
the marvin clamps. Looks to me like we ought to tape something 
that acts as an insulater around those clamps and around that 
rubber to help stop the condensation there. Thats probably just 
condensation is what it is. 

CAPCOM Okay, Bob. DECOM was listening in on that and he's 

copied . 

SPACECRAFT I don't know what we've got onboard that we might 
be able to tape around there. Maybe a towel or something like 
that anything to cut the airflow down on that cold metal or that 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl51j GMT 318:15:53 11/14/82 PAGE 2 



cold rubber. And Roy, we're getting the COAS up for that COAS 
axign and we'll get on that DEU checkout as soon as we get those 
COAS align. 

CAPCOM Okay, sir, sounds fine. 

SPACECRAFT And Roy, are we clear now at the terminator to 
maneuver to that COAS CAL attitude? We didn't have a time to 
start maneuver. Houston, Columbia. 

CAPCOM We - stand by Columbia. We're checking right 

now. Columbia, you'll be clear to go to COAS align attitude at 
sunset . 

SPACECRAFT Houston, Columbia. 
CAPCOM Go ahead Columbia. 

SPACECRAFT Roy, according to the {garble), the way it came up 
we're going to do this minus Z COAS CAL without doing an IMU 
align first. I just wanted to make - check to make sure that's 
the way you wanted it. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. Yes, we'll go ahead and do the 

COAS CAL without the IMU align this time. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

CAPCOM Vance, we feel pretty comfortable with this COAS 

align without the IMU align because you got 3 pretty good IMU's 
onboard right now. 

SPACECRAFT Good . 



END OF TAPE 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl52j GMT 318:16:36 11/14/82 PAGE 1 



CAPCOM ....Vance we feel pretty comfortable with this 

COAS align without the IMU align because you got 3 pretty good 
IMUs on board right now. 

SPACECRAFT Good . 

CAPCOM And Columbia, we're going LOS right now. The next 

pass will be Indian Ocean at about 0422. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, see you at 22 very soon. 

PAO Mission Control Houston, 3 days 4 hours 21 minutes 

Mission Elapsed Time. We'll have a brief pass over the Indian 
Ocean station in about a minute. The crew at this time is 
scheduled to be doing a crew optical alignment system 
calibration, and they have about a ten minute maneuver to line up 
for that. That's part of the system that allows the crew to use 
some of their own resources to make navigation sitings if that 
were to become necessary, sort of a back up system. I believe it 
was Bob Overmyer reported in the area around the lithium 
hydroxide cannisters they found about 2 to 3 ounces of water 
floating around, which they believe is condensate on some cold 
equipment down there, and he said they mopped that up. At 3 days 
4 hours 22 minutes, this is Mission Control Houston. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston with you through Indian 

Ocean station for a very short pass, and we'd be interested to 
know how the pan 3 heating experiment came out. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Roy, stand by on that, I've got about a 3 
handed job going right now. 

CAPCOM Columbia, flouston, we're at 20 seconds... 



SPACECRAFT Okay Roy, can you hear me? 

CAPCOM Yes, go ahead Joe, got about 15 seconds. 

SPACECRAFT Okay this is Bill, we just finished sequence Mike, 
sequence Juliet showed some interesting (garble) patterns with 
essential with a central (garble) toward the end. 

CAPCOM Okay we copy Bill, thanks for the info. 

CAPCOM Columbia your qoing AOS, LOS, Guam will be next at 

0620. 



SPACECRAFT I'll see you there. 

PAO Mission Control Houston, just had loss of signal 

with Columbia through the Indian Ocean station. Starting orbit 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl52j GMT 318:16:36 11/14/82 PAGE 2 



number 52 shortly, and we'll reacquire over Guam in about 17 and 
1/2 minutes. This is Mission Control Houston. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston with you through Guam 

for 7 minutes. 



SPACECRAFT We copy. 

CAPCOM And for Boh or Vance, I've got some changes to the 

CAP for you. For the {garble) duty cycle burns, be ready to 
copy . 

SPACECRAFT Can you wait on that a second, we're just 

finishing up the COAS CAL, say Bob we'll give you the data in a 
minute, but as hard as we tried, best we could get on the COAS 
CAL back here, and (garble) was dead center on the COAS (garble) 
about 3 different times and it was consistant at .14, .14 that 
was after we excepted the first large one at .40. We centered it 
up and it was dead center, and for the best my eye could see it 
was dead center, it kept coming up .14. 

CAPCOM Okay Bob, we understand. 

SPACECRAFT And Bob, while you're waiting for them, let me 

give you the final count here on the convection experiment, do 
you copy? 

CAPCOM Okay, go ahead. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, I'm finishing it up now on the last 
sequence, this is Bill, I've got through the bottom and I did the 
sequence Papa, I am now repeating sequence November, when I first 
did sequence November I had set the jitter select to 4 but 
neglected to turn it off. So, in case there was some kind of an 
internal sequencer, I went ahead and finished Papa as advertised, 
and have come back and finished up November now, and it's just 
wrapping up now, over. 

CAPCOM Okay, we got a good copy, Bill. 

SPACECRAFT I'm not sure it will be on the video tape, and I 

tried to point to each of the appropriate dishes as the tape 
started to help you pick it out without the audio. 



CAPCOM Alright, mighty fine. 

SPACECRAFT Bob, where should wo be taking notes, in the CAP, 

or on a note pad, or in the ops checklist. 

CAPCOM I think you can take them directly in the CAP Bob. 



SPACECRAFT Okay, what page? 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl53j GMT 318:17:03 11/14/82 PAGE 1 

SPACECRAFT Okay, and Bob, I just came up to turn the VTR off 
and it ran out of tape before we got to the end of the 
experiment. I'm not sure where. 

CAPCOM Okay Bill. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, as soon as possible, we need to get 

back into the track mode and starboard sun. Are you ready to 
copy on the cap? 

SPACECRAFT Sure Bob. We're ready. 

CAPCOM Okay. On page 4-66, on the L2U burn, number 3, on 

the maneuver option, we changed this to roll plus 192. That's on 
the top of the page Bob. You got that located? 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Give me the time after 4-66. (garble) I've 
got 2 different areas on the page I'm looking at. 

CAPCOM Okay. It's at 6:04. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 6:04, maneuver option roll 97.2, pitch 
329.7, yaw 332.2. 

CAPCOM That's affirm. Let's change these numbers as 

follows: roll plus 192.0, pitch plus 128.5, yaw plus 311.6. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. I understand. That's roll plus 192.0, pitch 
128.5, yaw plus 311.6. 

CAPCOM Hey, that's a good copy. On the next change, page 

4-67, and the time on this burn is 0715. 

SPACECRAFT (garble) looking at 0715. 

CAPCOM Okay. The new numbers are roll plus 287.5, pitch 

plus 106.7, yaw plus 291.8. And a 0714 initiate maneuver. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. The way I see it you gave me a roll in place 
of 104. The roll is now 287.5, 106.7, 291.8. Start the maneuver 
at 0714. 

CAPCOM That's a good copy Bob, and we're making these 

changes in order to buy you a little more daylight for the 
landing. And after the completion of these burns, we'd like to 
get the IMU align done as quickly as possible after completion, 
and we would like to get the IMU done before the daylight which 
is going to come at about 0754. We'd like to get that IMU done 
before 0754 and you're free to use normal jets anywhere in thin 
sequence to accomplish that goal. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl53j GMT 318:17:03 11/14/82 PAGE 2 



SPACECRAFT Okay. We understand that and we'll do the best we 
can to get that IMU align done before we get out into the 
sunlight . 

CAPCOM Okay Bob. 

SPACECRAFT And Bob, on the first maneuver you gave us a change 
to, is the time of burn still 6:25? I mean the time (garble)? 

CAPCOM Standby Vance. You're very badly broken up on that 

one. Could you say it again please? 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Is the time to initiate maneuver still 6:04 
on the first change data you gave us? 

CAPCOM That's affirm. No change on the burn time. Or the 

initiate maneuver time. 

SPACECRAFT Right. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, we're going LOS in about 20 

seconds. We'll talk to you next through Hawaii at 0456. 

SPACECRAFT Bob just reconfirm that that 1st one you read, 
192.0 replaced a 97.2 on the roll at 6:04. 

CAPCOM That's affirmative. That's the proper place and 

you'll have a PMC coming up first at Hawaii. 



SPACECRAFT Okay. 



PAO Mission Control, Houston. 3 days, 4 hours, 50 

minutes Mission Elapsed Time. Columbia passing out of range of 
the Guam tracking station on orbit number 52 and will reacquire 
in about 6 minutes over Hawaii where the crew has a private 
medical conference scheduled with the surgeon. They have been 
working on the crew optical alignment system calibration which is 
one of the flight objectives and then we'll be putting the 
spacecraft back in the starboard sun position. At 3 days, 4 
hours, 50 minutes...

we'll be putting the Spacecraft back in the starboard sun 
position. At 3 days 4 hours 50 minutes, Mission Elapsed Time, 
this is Mission Control Houston. 

SPACECRAFT Houston, Columbia. 

CAPCOM Go ahead Columbia, this is CAPCOM with you now. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, fine. Just want to verify two things with 
you. Going into the L2U burns, they should be obvious I guess, 
out I want to double check them. One, we're sitting at the 
attitude that we want to have for the first burn and two, you 
have no time updates like what we'd find on FS5-5 except for the 
one you gave us. 

CAPCOM Okay Vance, I understand the question. Let us 

check the one update, time update that we gave you is the only 
one that I know of, we'll check around the room here. 

SPACECRAFT When I say sitting at the attitude, I mean sitting 
in the tracking mode that you want for the first part. 

CAPCOM Yes Vance, we see you in the tracking mode, and 

that one time update was the only one that was intended. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, thank you. 

CAPCOM And just a reminder before you get into these 

burns, that we do not want to be interconnected for the burns. 

SPACECRAFT Roger, copy. 

CAPCOM Yes, you had a procedure on that. 

CAPCOM Columbia, we're 30 seconds to LOS, at Hawaii, this 

will be the last pass for the ascent/entry team today, we'll turn 
you over to the orbit guys. And Columbia, as you go out of site 
LOS, we see you in good configuration and good attitude for the 
burn. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, good. 

PA0 Mission Control Houston, loss of signal at Hawaii, 

on orbit number 52. The crew now preparing for the aft reaction 
control system 3 engine soakback test one of the detailed test 
objectives of this flight. In which thermal conditioning and 
soakback of three adjacent engine, in the aft RCS system are

voice relay station at Botswana. This is Mission Control 
Houston, day 3 5 hours 6 minutes. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, orbit team is with you at 

Botswana for 6 and 1/2 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Stand by, we're just about ready to do this burn. 
Okay. 

SPACECRAFT And Columbia. If your looking at data, you will 
notice that during the first burn we got 9£od data and 
everything, we did get a message about right OMS and that was 
because we were not interconnected but we had not done the item 7 
to stop the interconnect calculations, so it thought it was 
taking it from the OMS when it was taking it from the RCS. And 
it showed an 8.14 percent out of the right OMS which never 
happened . 

CAPCOM Roger, we copy that, Bob. 

SPACECRAFT At this time, we've got the item 7 done so it won't 
happen. 

CAPCOM Okay . 

SPACECRAFT I re-state Brian, we were actually not 
interconnected for that last burn so it's D ust a matter of that 
one item number. 

CAPCOM Roger Bob, understand. 

SPACECRAFT And Brian, I've got the numbers for the first one, 
if you want them real quick, Delta X was -.05, Delta ZY - . 08 , 
Delta ZV was 11.36, that's one one point three six, Delta V total 
way 123.40. 

CAPCOM Roger, we copied that, thanks. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, we're about to go LOS for a 

minute, and we'll see you at IOS. 

SPACECRAFT See you there, got another burn off. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston wi*h you at Indian Ocean for 8 

minutes . 

SPACECRAFT Roger Brian, and we're setting up for the next 
maneuver . 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl55j GMT 318:18:11 11/14/82 PAGE 1 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston with you at Indian Ocean for 8

SPACECRAFT Roger Brian. And we're setting up for the next 
maneuver . 

CAPCOM Roger Vance. 

SPACECRAFT W'.at did you have? (Garble), Brian? 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. Say again. You were cut out. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston with a radio ch'.k. 

SPACECRAFT Here Houston. How do you read? 

CAPCOM Roger. Loud and clear. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Did you want the records for burn bravo, DDX 

is .00, DDY was -.21, BOGY V was 10.86, (garble) was 13.94. 

CAPCOM Roger Bob. Copy th=it. 

SPACECRAFT (garble). Brian, vou don't have data at 
Botswana. Okay. 

CAPCOM Roger. Columbia, we're at IOS but we're having 

trouble getting the data. We're reconfiguring right now. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. I just wanted somebody to look over my 
shoulder on the maneuver option on the universal point and make 
sure that those numbers were what were read up to us as the 
change to the cap. That's all. 

CAPCOM Roger. In that case, since we're not getting data 

yet. Let's go ahead and verify those over air to ground. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. I've got item 5, 6, and 7 for the next 
maneuvers set up as follows: roll 192.0, pitch 128.5, and yaw 
311.6. Over. 

CAPCOM Roger that. And that attitude looks good. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Brian. That's what I wanted to check. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston. Just another word on that, 

that attitude is a change and it's posigrade burn now. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. That's fine as long as we got the right 
numbers. Ti;?r's all we wanted. 



STR-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t!55j GMT 318:18:1] 11/14/82 PAGE 



CAPCOM Roger. They look good to us. And Columbia, 

Houston, we're seeing them now on our data. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. And you notice that item 1 on that spec, 
that we're going to start it at 6:04 as per the CAP. 

CAPCOM Roger. Concur with that Bob. 

SPACECRAFT And Brian, I hate to sound like a worry wart but 
our cap says that that maneuver will be done in B auto vern 
versus nominal so I assume we're staying in verniers. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, roger that's the cap versior 

but if you feel like you need to get there quicker, use your own 
judgement on verniers and primarys. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. We understand that. As long as we get the 
maneuver started, we'll get a movement or completion time and 
we'll compare that using verniers versus normal. 

CAPCOM Roger. Concur, 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston with a minute to go to LOS and I 

have a note on the humidity sep for you. 

SPACECRAFT Go. 

CAPCOM Roger. Last night we noticed the waste tank 

quantity built up nicely and what we'd like to do right now and 
when you've got a chance, to turn humidity sep B off and we'd 
like to look at its performance before you go to sleep tonight. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. You want to take humidity sep Bravo to 
off. That's - 

CAPCOM Roger. And that's so we can take a look and see 

how A does on its own. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Have you come up with any ideas what we can 
wrap on that y-duct down there to maybe cut off some of that 
condensation down here? 

CAPCOM Roger. We're going to discuss that down here. 

We'll get back to you. 

SPACECRAFT I was thinking Brian, if nothing else, we could 
take a couple of old towels we've got and gray tape them around 
them. That ought to be a little insulation if nothing else. 
Lord knows, we've got plenty of those. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl55j GMT 318:18:11 11/14/82 PAGE 

CAPCOM Roger. We'll have to get back to you on that.

SPACECRAFT The High Andes are pretty today. Nice and clear. 
CAPCOM That's great Bob. 

SPACECRAFT Giant a lakebed down there, we're going over a dry 
lakebed. Looks like we could land about 3 orbiters there. 

CAPCOM Roger. I hope we don't need to do that. 

SPACECRAFT That's just how bit it was. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, about to go LOS. We'll see 

you at Botswana at 7 plus 21. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Brian. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston with you at Botswana for 6 

minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Houston. I understand the CDR's COMM is okay 
now. Be advised that it appears that WCC UA or its antenna is 
out. I didn't have time to troubleshoot it. Just changed to 
unit echo and it works okay. 

CAPCOM Roger. We copy Vance and concur with staying with 

alpha, or echo, sorry, echo.

SPACECRAFT Houston, Columbia. I've got a question. 
CAPCOM Roger, go ahead. 

SPACECRAFT Any reason why I can't give you the PAM ASE thermal 
stuff now? 

CAPCOM Stand by. 

SPACECRAFT Brian, did I read you the data for burn echo? Or 
did we lose you at Botswana there? 

CAPCOM Roger, we got all the data for burn 5, and all the 

burns looked real good. The prop usage and the Delta Vs were 
right on. 

SPACECRAFT If you finally get these right if you simulate long 
enough, huh? 

CAPCOM Roger that. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston. For tank bravo on the water 

tonight, we'd like you to dump it to 15 percent. 

SPACECRAFT Okay 15 percent on bravo. 

SPACECRAFT Any particular time I can start that? 

CAPCOM Stand by on that. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, I was just wondering if I could get it going 
now, (garble) . 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl58j GMT 318:19:41 11/14/82 PAGE 2 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston. On the water dump, if you 

start now, you should go to 10 percent, if you start at the CAP 
time of 8 hours go to 15 percent.

at Guam. 8 minutes away from reacquisition at Hawaii. Meanwhile 
here in the control center building, power bus A2 supplying part 
of the electrical power into the building has been taken down for 
inspection. The only affect it has in the flight just now is 
that we have no command uplink to the spacecraft. We do have UHF 
and S-band voice. We have downlink telemetry data from the 
spacecraft. Again the only thing impacted by this inspecton 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t>Wj GMT 318 : 11/14/82 PAGE 2

SPACECRAFT Okay Brian, we're here. 

SPACECRAFT We don't have anything exciting to report to you, 
do you have anything exciting for us? 

CAPCOM That's negative, right now we're finishing up our 

tag up, we'd like to have with you at Ascension on the next pass. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl60j GMT 318:20:27 11/14/82 PAGE 2 

SPACECRAFT Okay, well I'm just lying here on the aft flight 
deck having just finished eating a bite. Lying here upside down 
looking out the overhead windows at the cloud patterns and the 
Ocean going by underneath. 

CAPCOM Sounds good, weatherman tells me you might have a 

good view of the South American coast when you come up on it. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, good. We haven't yet learned the new 
attitude in the windows and where to look to see things coming. 
But it looks like it's out the back end here, although we re 
going a different direction than I thought we would. 

CAPCOM Roger that. 

SPACECRAFT Hey by golly the weatherman's right, here it 
comes . 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, if you could give us your 

elevon position report when you've got a chance. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, well looking out the aft it looks like the 
right outboard, right inboard and left inboard are almost full 
up, and the left outboard looks like it's pretty much trail. 

CAPCOM Roger, copy that. 

SPACECRAFT I forget the name of this (garble) zone right up 

the fountains here, but it is outstanding and easy to see from 
here . 

CAPCOM Roger that Bill. 

SPACECRAFT If there is a geologist there ask him if that's 

the Autoconus Fault. 

CAPCOM Roger, we're looking. 

SPACECRAFT And as usual, the Eastern half is socked in - 
CAPCOM Roger, that's what the satellite picture shows 

here Bill, too. 

SPACECRAFT That's what this satellite picture shows too. 

SPACECRAFT They've either got road building people here or 
animals that wnlk in awfully straight long lines.

his comm line. 

CAPCOM Okay. 

SPACECRAFT Brian, I want credit for some more miles on my BFT 
there. 

CAPCOM Roger that. And Columbia is you've got a couple 

of minutes we'll go ahead and tag up with you before we go LOS. 



SPACECRAFT 



Yes, let her rip, Brian. 



CAPCOM 
went better tha 



Roger, you guys did a great job today. The burns 
wen, u«^ci u„n any time we practiced them and the experiment 
covereqe was super. Scott Thomas was very excited about the TV 
you showed him and he's looking forward to the VTR coverage for 
those other parts we didn't get real time. As far as the orbitet 
goes, we've had more anomalies in the mocker than you've had up 
there. Fornutately ours have all been minor ones. We had some 
rain in Houston a couple of nights ago, this is for Joe. And we 
were real worried about his car even though all the windows were 
closed, knowing his car we'd like to offer to send somebody out 
to open up all the door and let the water out. And for Bob, as a 
result of the successful DEU work today, Bob MOL buddies are 
considering revoking his manual texterlty award. However, if he 
can't find his copy there considering making up a new one tor 



SPACECRAFT I'm sure of that but let me tell you. 
question whether that coffee was ever onboard. 



I really 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl61j GMT 318:20:58 11/14/82 PAGE 2 



CAPCOM Okay, Bob. 

SPACECRAFT He's now drinking coffee with sugar. 

CAPCOM Roger that. Anomalies with the orbiter, we've 

talked about WCCUA and the humidity sep analysis is in work. 
We'll be looking at the waste tank quantities tomorrow morning to 
see how to single humidity sep worked. We're still researching 
Bob Stewart's comment on the apple tree's that he made this 
morning. The orbit team has been unable to figure out what he 
was talking about and we think it must have been some kind of 
army joke but we can't find Woody Spring to verify that. It 
appears that Woody is on his way to Korea to become the special 
services officer at Klang Jew after the jalapeno episode. 

SPACECRAFT That's great. 

CAPCOM And concerning tomorrows flight plan of course 

we've got EVA. You'll be working stowage tomorrow after the EVA 
and we'll probably have an ASE temp check during the EVA prebrief 
and we'll have recommendations for Vance's comm hookup for 
deorbit for you by tomorrow evening. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, hey that all sounds real good, Brian. 

CAPCOM Okay, Vance and Columbia we'd like you to do step 

3 of the reconfiguration to nominal on the RCS VTO when you get a 
chance . 

SPACECRAFT Yeah. We were just about to start that. I'm 

taking a (garble) backup to get on that SSR, Brian. 

CAPCOM Roger that, Bob. 

SPACECRAFT T think we had a good day up here to, Brian and 

looks like we're going to be ready to go tomorrow and ...

SPACECRAFT and I think we had a good day up here to Brian, 
and !ooks like we're going to be ready to go tomorrow and I 
suppose most of the DTO's are finished except for the EVA. Is 
that right? 

CAPCOM That's affirmative Vance. 

SPACECRAFT Right. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston with less than a minute to 

go The state vector good message will come up a little later 
tonight on the teleprinter. And again, you had a great day and 
we'll go ahead and put you all to bed and we're looking forward 
to a good solid day tomorrow. 

SPACECRAFT Same here, and so see you later. Thank you. Take 
care of those things you mentioned. 

CAPCOM Roger that. We're getting right on them. 

PA0 This is Mission Control, Houston. Loss of signal 

through Ascension Island in the final pass of the day probably as 
the c?ew prepares to go into their scheduled sleep period some 34 
minutes from P now. Bit of light exchange there between the 
spacecraft communicator Brian O'connor and the crew and one 
?eedback from the crew was that the way they figured , they h «1 
completed all the detailed test objectives for the flight except 
for tomorrow's EVA and the people here n the control center 
agreed with that assessment. Next station is Guam in " mnutes, 
but unless there's some reason to call the crew, it's ""likely 
there will be any air to ground between the control center and 
Guam? or throughGuam. Day 3, 8 hours, 56 minutes. This vs

CAPCOM Well, we're doing real fine. The gray team, or 

planning team will be with you for about 2 1/2 hours this morning 
and it will be our pleasure to be with you during your waking 
hours for a while. On your CAP overview and update, when you get 
around to looking at that guy, you'll notice that we have put all 
crew activities in single columns. We hope that this format will 
be something that you can execute directly from and we're able to 
do it because of the number of activities for the MS ' s relative 
to the WA, they're not specifically calling out for details in 
the CAP. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, well we'll look her over and see how it 
works. Single columns? John Rivers and Tucker Pierce won't be 
the same again! 

CAPCOM We got that! Columbia, Houston. We're 30 seconds 

from LOS. We'll be with you next at Mila at 18 10 and we should 
have at least by the end of the Mila pass a copy of that CAP 
overview/update up for each one of you.

SPACECRAFT Okay Dick, I'll did that again last night, did you 

want us to do it again this morning? 

CAPCOM Negative, you're ahead of us already Bill. 

SPACECRAFT Went in there last niqht and kind of brought the 

whole EVA prep back up to date again. And Dick, we have changed 
out the gammans in the batteries and that was quite a grand catch 
on somebody's part down there, I'd have forgotten to redo that. 
With regards to the CAP, do you realize that the next step in 
your single column CAP is a no-column CAP, I want you to think 
about that. 

CAPCOM We could probably find some support for that down 

here . 



SPACECRAFT 



And Dick are you still with us? 



STS- r > AfR/OROUND TRANSCRIPT tlfi6i CMT 118:06:00 U/1S/82 PACK ?. 



CAPCOM That's affirmative for another 6 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT T think you ought to, you'll he happy to know that 

we never made any comment hut that substitution work went 
extremely well and we're lookinq forward to the zero to prep to 
qo as well. T think that Fliqht Planner that whole solution he 
came up with is very pliable and a very easy thinq to do. 

CAPCOM Well we're q 1 ad to hear that. 

SPACECRAFT We fiqure we only qot about 142 to do it for the 

next fliqht and that's all, that's a minor number. 



SPACECRAFT On Thursday I, we could Hist, take and fly it all 

over again, it was really that easy Dick. 

CAPCOM Well you all come back and let some of us get a 
chance to do that. 

SPACECRAFT Okay we'll think about that. When (garble). Did 
he? 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, we're 30 seconds to LOS, we'll

SPACECRAFT quantity by one ounce. And you have to bo awfully 
careful to qet them totally heated over very carefully because if 
you don't you end up with just a cloud of scrambled eggs all over 
the cockoit when you open them up and they're too dry and they've 
broken up into little bitty balls of scrambled eqgs. This is the 
second morninq in a row that we've managed to have a cloud of 
scrambled eqgs on the middeck for a few minutes. 

CAPCOM Okay, we copy that, Rob, and understand that was 

an additional one ounce to the rehydration. 

SPACECRAFT You have to add one ounce to the rehydration on 

scrambled egqs and you have to probably to a pretty qood job in 
kneading the package before you put it in the warmer, otherwise 
the water doesn't penetrate fully down into the egg yet. 



CAPCOM We copy . 

SPACECRAFT It's hard to see Rob down there till the cloud 

clears. Actually, they're very tasty and I used the extra ounce 
in my eggs today and man, these are really great. (garble) the 
one thing that makes eating a pleasure versus a chore is getting 
yourself a good position in these restraints so you can get down 
and enjoy it. Our system right now doesn't really lend itself to 
that. We've got a lot of make shift work to get the restraints 
down. I can see an awful lot of improvement needed in the line 
of restraints and trays to really make eatinq easy. 

CAPCOM Well, we understand how it is for Marines when 

they eat. 

SPACECRAFT We don '■ t always eat out of a foxhole.

eating in zero gravity. The, obviously the scrambled eggs that 
the astronauts eat for breakfast are powdered and Overmyer was 
observing that he needed to add an extra ounce of water to the 
mixture in oroer to provide enough surface tension on the eggs to 
eat them comfortably in zero gravity. We reacquire signal agair

Houston, we have location of the biomed extension cable if you're 
ready to copy. 

SPACECRAFT Go ahead. 

CAPCOM Okay, we've actually found it in two places. 

Looks like the easiest one will be in the electrode kit and 
that's in mike fox 28 oscar. 

SPACECRAFT Mike fox 28 oscar in the electrode kit? 

CAPCOM That's affirmative. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Dick, what we're talkinq about is the 

adaptor cable where it connects right to the ships bio-med so 
they don't have to connect it to the suit. And we can't find 
that cable. It's not in 28 mike fox 28 oscar. And the 
last exercise that was in Joe's biomed well it's 

not there today. 

CAPCOM Okay, we copy, and we've got that backup 

location. We're trying to sort out the one to send you there. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, do you understand it's the cable that goes 

directly to the ship so we don't have to tie it to the suit for 
this biomed check. 

CAPCOM Roger, we understand that Bob. Okay, Bob, there 

should be one of those guys in the red trimmed medical kit. And 
that's located in mike fox trot 1 4 oscar.

What you need is to come in more like this, T can't quite reach 
it, almost if vou bend up, I've got you. T don't know, did you 
see him? It's tripping out for some reason, it does have some 
kind of a control circuitry in there, that makes it tough to work 
around. It was doing it on his battery too, I don't know if 
that's going to matter, I think it's his fan. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, with you at Buckhorn for about 

2 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Say Houston, we've got something to report to you 

on this EVA prep, standby. Houston, how do you read EV 1? 

CAPCOM With you r i-by EV 1. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we've got a problem with Joe's fan, we got 

to the point whore we both got helmets on, T got my fan on and up 
and running, Joe's fan was on and running and SCtJ and thon it 
suddenly quite and at the same time he got a bite light on his 
D&C panel. We cycled the fan and came back on but dropped back 
off lining and we've looked at SCU and batt power and basically 
it's the same way, it'll come on for a few seconds, trip off, 
give him a bite light on the D&C panel and on the SCU power he 
charqing the same voltage I am, about 19.4 and I drawing about 
4.1 or 2 amps of steady state, when his fan comes on the amps go 
up scale hiqh for about 2 seconds and then they drop down 1 
amp. And that's where wo are, we've got Joe's helmet off and I 
just took mine off as well, and we're looking for some ideas? 

CAPCOM Roger, we're think about it and get back to you. 

SPACECRAFT And Roy, can you read EV-2 now?

SPACECRAFT Okay, we cot- Id hear the fan increase and decrease 

in speed as though it was lagging before it shuts off. It's as 
though it's drawing a heavy load of sorae kind, and Bill says it 
does it both on the SCLJ and on batt power. 

CAPCOM Okay , we copy .

SPACECRAFT ...before it shuts off. Its as though its drawing 
a heavey load of some kind. And as Bill says, it does it both on 
the SCU and on BATT power. 

CAPCOM Okay, we copy thay Joe. We're going to LOS in 15 

seconds. We'll pick you up again at Mi la at 21 19. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Roy. We'll see you there. 

CAPCOM Pleasure. 

SPACECRAFT T'm going to hardline. 

PAO This is Shuttle Control. r.OS of signal thru 

Buckhorn. Merritt Island will pick up Columbia in a minute 1/2 a 
problem with Joe Allen's suit fan. Fan will start but then shuts 
off after a short time. That problem being studied here in the 
control center. Both EVA crewman Allen and Lenoir have removed 
their helmets. Bill Lenoir reported so they are not now pre- 
breathing. That pre-breath ing had been scheduled to start at 3 
days, 21 hours 10 minutes, about 8 minutes ago, 8 or 9 minutes 
ago, but thc-ir main problem now is to solve the fan situtation. 
We should have acquisition thru Mi la in about 30 seconds. We'll 
stand by. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston with you thru Mi la in Bermuda for 

12 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Roy we got you. Roy, we're hearing you, how 
do you read? 

CAPCOM Just fine now. And Vance, we're still looking at 

the problem here. In the meant ire, we recommend you go back to 
bravo DAP, bravo K . 

SPACECRAFT I understand, bravo 6. Okay. And Roy, while we're 
waiting for some word from you, just be advised that the suit up 
to that point wont extremely smooth and very well. And now all 
the systems locked in without any problem and we're essentially 
pressing right along until that fan problem. I can verify that 
this fan absolutely stopped running. I put my head as close to 
the back of his pack as I could, and I could not hear a fan and 
on Willies I could hear Lenoirs fan all the time, no problem. So 
it was pretty obvious that when those amps drooped off on Joe's 
that his fan had just quit. And Roy, a final word, our feeling 
is it'll start running for a few minutes if we turn on again. 
You might consider foregoing a leak check till we get to a low 
pressure. I'm sure that if there's not quite such an atmosphere 
to drag around, the fan may well work. 



CAPCOM 



Okay Joe. We copied that and we'll consider it.

SPACECRAFT Okay, we copy, Roy, wo ' 1 1 give it a try. The 

cannister is out now. Joe, why don't you turn around and look at 
that. I'll turn the fan on now. Are you set? Yes. Fan's 
coming from off and I'm (garble). Okay. Well, what do you think 
(garble) in thero. I thought it just clipped off again, didn't 
it? Did you run it? Yes. How many amps, Rob, how many amps? 
EV2. Okay, Roy, Joo with the Li OH cannister out has started his 
fan. It r.eems to run although it apparently wants to

motor boat. He's drawing 4 amps but intermittently low. 

CAPCOM Okay, copy 4 amps but intermittently low and the 

fan is tending the motor boat. 

SPACECRAFT (garble) She's throwing 4 amps but it's slightly 

down from 4 to 3.8. You can hear a little bit of tugging on the 
fan but not much. It's almost steady state. 

CAPCOM Okay, good. 

SPACECRAFT Give me that the cell Li OH (garble) please. 

CAPCOM Okay, we're still looking, Bob, standby a 

second. Okay, Bob, that new LiOH cannister's in MA9 Tama.

Lima . 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Hey Roy, Joe reports he can hear it 

motorboat that sounds like water. Roy, standyby, say that number 
again . 

CAPCOM MA 9 Lima. 

SPACECRAFT Hey Bob,you;ve got (garble). Roy, this is Joe, 

(garble) Hey Roy, this is EVl, Joe, his fan is still running. Do 
you want us to leave it run or turn it off? 

CAPCOM Standby. Columbia, Houston. Recommend you turn 

it off for the time being. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Okay, Roy. We turned it off now. Okav, 
his fan is off. 

CAPCOM Roger, wo can hear it. 

SPACECRAFT We've got a lot of static as I'm sure you can 

hear . 

CAPCOM That's affirmative. Wo can hear it when the fan 

is on . 

SPACECRAFT Roy, where could the water be? Anywhere in that 

loop. I would think we could blow it out, Bill. If its in 
there. Its got a water separator, as a matter of fact. Okav, 
Roy. I've got the spare r iOM ready to go on anytime. I do not 
see any visual water anvwhoro in the back at all, and I've looked 
as far up into those hole.i as I can. Any place else I can look? 



CAPCOM Standby a moment, Bob. 

SPACECRAFT No, it couldn't have gotten in here. No way. But 

the hatch has been closed. 



CAPCOM Okay, Columbia, Houston. One other place we 

recommend you look is to disconnect the LCVG and look in that 
area . 

SPACECRAFT (garble). At the disconnect? At the 

disconnector, the back? I think he means the waist disconnect. 
At the waist disconnect, Roy? I don't think there's water 
there. I don't feel any water. If its leaking there. Oo you 
want us to drop the lower torso on Joe and disconnect that LCG? 
Roy, did you copy Bob? 



CAPCOM Yes, we copy and we don't have a good 

recommendation before we go LOS here. We have about *> seconds 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl75j GMT 319:09:46 11/15/82 PAGE 2 

we'll pick you up in Dakar in 21 35. Y'all just look for water 
where ever you think theres a good chance you might find some. 

SPACECRAFT Thank you. What did he say? Okay, and Roy, we 

don't have any free water in the cabin now. 

CAPCOM I understand. 

pn^O This is Shuttle Control. Bermuda has loss of 

signal. Dakar is next in 2 1/2 minutes. Still troubleshooting 
Joe Aliens suit. The EVA controller here in the control Mission 
Control Center, believes the problem is either water in the fan 
or an electrical short. Still checking for water. Columbia's 
crew reports there is no frae water in the cabin, and they found 
no water when they removed lithium-hydroxide cannister from the 
extra-vehicular mobility unit. They are considering now checking

extravehicular mobility unit, they are considering now a checking 
the liquid cooled garment in various places to see whether they 
might find water. We'll standby for communications through Dakar 
about a minute and 20 seconds. At 3 days 21 hours 33 minutes 
mission elapsed time this is Shuttle Control Houston. 

SPACECRAFT It's kind of a weird reception. I guess AC but I 

wouldn't swear to i'c (interference) 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, with you at Dakar for 8 

minutes . 

SPACECRAFT Okay Roy, we didn't have any ideas either, but in 

the interim we had Bob get out the vacuum cleaner. 
(Interference). Would it be any better for us to be sucking the 
air blowing in or pushing it in or out of the Li OH connection? 

CAPCOM Okay, that sounds like a good idea, try to blow it 

out if you can. 

SPACECRAFT You want to blow it out, ah? Okay, we'll give it 

a try. And Houston, do you hear the interference we've got on 
this frequency right now? 

CAPCOM Roger, we hear it and we'll try to get rid of it. 

SPACECRAFT Alright (interference) Okay my water's off, I'm 

going to turn my fan on and I'm on SCU (interference). Make it 
easier (interference) Houston, this is Columbia. 

CAPCOM Go ahead Columbia. 

SPACECRAFT Roq , we might turn Bob, we're getting a real bad 

interference, we may turn UHF off for a short time we can still 
communicate S-band right? 

CAPCOM Affirmative. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, hey Roy, (interference). This is EV-1. Get 

a hold on. Roy this is Rob, how do you read? 

CAPCOM Okay I read you 5-by now Bob, and we've got three 
requests for you. 

SPACECRAFT I'd like to make a comment first, if you want to 
listen. 



SPACECRAFT When we turn on his fan now we tried second on the 

side that he, would be, blowing out on the fan here, when you 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t!76j GMT 319:09:51 11/15/82 PAGE 2 

press the fan on, there's definitely a suction on the one on the 
port as I look at it on the right side, starboard side, 

FND OF TAPE 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl77j GMT 319:09:58 11/15/82 PAGK 1 



SPACECRAFT You don't understand now. We tried second on the 

side that you were going out on the fan there. When he turns the 
fan there's definitely a suction on the one on the port. As I 
look at it on the right side, the starboard side. But as you, 
but there's no air or barely coming out of the other side like 
there's a blockage in there of some sort. It doesn't appear to 
be any air coming out of the left port. 

CAPCOM Okay, we copy that. 

SPACECRAFT Go ahead with your address. 

CAPCOM Okay, we wanted to know Joe's current 

conf igurat ion . 

SPACECRAFT Well, he's off the wall and holding onto the 

handrail. The helmets are off both guys. And I've got the old 
Li OH cannister off right now and T got the new Li OH cannister 
sitting on the floor ready to put in. Now when we ran the fan 
that time it the amps came down to 4 but thev cycled a little 
lower that time than the first time. They cycled for 4 down to 
about 3.2 and then back up to 3.4, 3.8 and they seem to be a 
bigger swing than the time before. 

CAPCOM Okay, we copy, we'd like to know if the bite light 

is on continuously. 

SPACECRAFT Houston, do you read EV1? 

CAPCOM Roger. Read you 5 by, EV1. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. The bite light I believe is only on when 

the fan is on. Yes, Joe's indicating that's correct. We've had 
to go to a hardline and turn UHF off here. That the bite light 
is on only when the fan is on and running or not running as the 
case may be. 

CAPCOM Okay, but when the fan is on and running then it's 

on continuously? The bite is on continuously. 

SPACECRAFT That's affirm. That is affirm. 

CAPCOM Okay, the other recommendation we have is to try 

to switch SCU and see if Joe's fan will run on the other SCU. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we had thought of that and we didn't quite 

get to it before you came up there with it the first time. We 
can do that right now. 

CAPCOM Roger. Columbia, Houston. 



SPACECRAFT Go ahead. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl77j GMT 319:09:58 11/15/82 PAGE 2 



CAPCOM Roger, Bob, in answer to your concern about no air 

coming out of the left side. That is the inlet. There should be 
no air coming out of that side. 

SPACECRAFT I think there's a definite suction in the one side 

and there's obviously no air coming out of the other. 

CAPCOM Okay, Bob, we may have it backwards. Columbia, 

Houston, we're 3G seconds LOS. We'll see you at Indian Ocean at 
21 57. 



SPACECRAFT Okay, Roy, we swapped SCU's that Joe's fan still 

behaves the same or on the other SCU.

Ocean station in 12 and 1/2 minutes. Crew still attempting to 
solve the problem of Joe Allen's suit. The fan is not operating 
properly. They switched the service and cooling umibilicals. 
That did not help the situation. This problem will continue to 
be worked on the ground and aboard Columbia. At 3 days 21 hours 
45 minutes mission elapsed time this is Shuttle Control 
Houston. This is Shuttle Control at 3 days 21 hours 56 minutes

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, with you through Indian Ocean 

for 2 and a half minutes. 

SPACECRAFT (garble) 

CAPCOM Okay, we don't have a solution for you yet, we'll, 

still working on the problem and would like to continue working 
the problem for the next hour or so. One thing we would like for 
you to do though is to set up for UHF COM at Yarragadee. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we'll get that, Roger, we have real bad 
interference on the Atlantic and Africa. 

CAPCOM Roger, and we could hear a lot of that Vance. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Hey Roy, to you up to date of what we tried 
on the interium is we looked at this schematics and verified that 
the one port that exhibit suction should, but the other portion 
should not exhibit any pressure because it's really connected 
through the open helmet and everything to the arm and leg vent, 
so the fact that no air was coming out there is not significant. 

CAPCOM Roger. 

SPACECRAFT Alright, we have run Joe's cooling to full cold to 

verify that the fan so different there, the last time we cycled 
the fan it seemed to be degraded somewhat, but runs like it's 
labored and wants to motor boat and just behaves like it's 
blocked, get that? 

CAPCOM Roger, we copy. 

SPACECRAFT And one thing is that it does pop water. We were 

wondering if a waterloop blockage would be sufficient to cause 
the fan motor itself to have the problems its having. 

CAPCOM Okay, we'll evaluate that. And Columbia, Houston, 

we're 30 seconds LOS. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Houston, and we'll be simplex 2 59 7. 

CAPCOM That's firmative Vance and we'll see you at 22 10. 

PAO This is Shuttle Control. Columbia out of range at 

the Indian Ocean station. Yarragadee is next in 10 minutes, no 
solution yet to the fan problem in Joe Allen's suit, we'll

CAPCOM Roger, you're 5-by. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we're in the airlock, Joe was getting hot so 

we're in the process right now of getting him out of this suit 
the pants, the lower torso's off and he's struggling to get out 
of the helmet. 

CAPCOM Okay we copy and Bill in answer to the comment you 

made at the last station, the fan would still work even if the 
waterloop were frozen up. 

SPACECRAFT That's want I thought, that magnetic coupling just 

isn't strong enough to stall the fan motor. And we have found no 
water anywhere. 

CAPCOM Okay we understand, and we are still 

investigating, trying to find some way to get possible trapped 
water out of the fan, and we'll be back to vou as soon as we 
finish those investigations. 

SPACECRAFT Okay and the last time we tried to cycle again it 

does the same thing and it motor boats, would say like about a 
five hertz motor boating. 

CAPCOM Okay copy. 

SPACECRAFT Houston, Columbia.

SPACECRAFT Roy, just one thought here. Just looking way 

ahead here in the event that we don't get this problem fixed, to 
give you an hours anticipation, you might request you might 
anticipate a suggestion for a short solo. 

CAPCOM Roger, your request is noted. 

SPACECRAFT Understand. It was just a suggestion Roy, not a 
request, a suggestion in the interest of the program. 

CAPCOM Roger, your suggestion is noted. 

SPACECRAFT So lets get this one solved and go do it right. 

CAPCOM Okay, we're full speed ahead on that. 

SPACECRAFT Roy, you might be interested. We just ran the fan 

with Joe out of the suit and we had the same problem. 

CAPCOM Roger and standby a minute. Columbia, Houston. 

SPACECRAFT Go ahead. 

CAPCOM Roger. Here's the suggestion we have for you, 

while you're LOS over the Pacific. We would like for you to put 
the helmet on the torso; put it to the no-vent position; put the 
IV to 02 and run the fan until Hawaii; unless its .. standby. 

SPACECRAFT You cut out at the end. Unless the fan is what? 

CAPCOM Standby. Okay, Columbia, Houston. We've got a 

slight change in that plan. Helmet on the torso in the no-vent 
position. Leave the 02 actuator off, run it until, to Hawaii if 
it is fairly stable. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, by fairly stable, you mean continuing a 
motor boating. 

CAPCOM Yes, we mean if it continues what its doing now. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, and if it degrades at all, the intent would 
be to turn it off unless you want us to leave it running. 

CAPCOM Your judgement. We'll see you at Hawaii at 22 37. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

PAO This is Shuttle Control, Yarragadee has a loss of 

signal. Columbia's next station is Hawaii in 18 minutes.

fan. Reported that he was getting hot so ho has taken the suit 
off. Crew has found no water, which is one of the suspected 
problems. Experts on the ground have now asked them to put the 
helmet back onto the neck ring onto the torso of the suit. Place 
it in the no-vent position and turn the fan on, if the fan will 
run. They'll continue to let it run until we have acquisition at 
Hawaii. in the mean time, the investigation of the problem will 
continue. At 3 days, 22 hours, 20 minutes mission elapsed time,

report on what's happened with Joe's suit here. 

CAPCOM Go ahead, Rill.

a motor boating status and

CAPCOM Yes, that'f 

boat is just about died. 

SPACECRAFT And while it's motor boating (garble). And while 

it's motor boating it doesn't sound like a stalled fan because 
it's drawing less current not more current and the last bit where 
we were motor boating at about 1 hertz it was swinging from about 
1 and 1/2 to 2 amps.

3.6 and it stayed there throughout the whole leak check and was 
stable there prior to that. 

CAPCOM Okay, that sounds okay. Let's see if we can get 

it up to 4.3 then. 

SPACKCRAFT Okay, its climbing past 2, at this time. Okay, 

Bob, here I am and again I'm more or less stable on gauge at 3.8 
and a digitals of 3.6. 

CAPCOM Okay, Rill copy the same numbers. 

SPACECRAFT I'd give it a while longer and see if it climbs 

up, but it seemed to approach these numbers asemthod icaly and 
than sit right here. 

CAPCOM That's okay, Bill. We've got about a minute left 

on this pass. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl82j GMT 319:11:15 11/15/82 PAGE 2 
SPACECRAFT Okay, and after LOS what do you want me to do? 

CAPCOM Just standby, we're still talking about it. 



CAPCOM 
until LOS. 



Columbia, this is Houston. We're about 15 seconds 
We'll talk to you next thru Dakar and ... 



SPACECRAFT Okay, yep. 

CAPCOM Bill why don't you go ahead and go into the purge 

mode on the suit and we'll talk to you in Dakar. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, good that will get the pre-breathe started 

even if we keep trying to leak check. 



CAPCOM 



That's affirmative. 



PAO This is Shuttle Control, Bermuda has loss of 

signal. Columbia's next acquisition thru Dakar, in just over 4 
minutes. Plan now would be for Bill Lenoir to depress the 
airlock, open the hatch to the payload bay, but not to get out of 
the airlock. To remain in the airlock, this would give a test of 
the extravehicular mobility unit. We'll standby for Dakar at 3 
hours, 3 days, 23 hours, 7 minuter mission elapsed time. This is 
Shuttle Control Houston. This is Shuttle Control at 3 days, 23 
hours, 10 minutes mission elapsed time. We have acquisition thru 
Dakar now. 



CAPCOM 

8 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT 

SPACECRAFT 

CAPCOM 



Columbia, this is Houston with you thru Dakar for 
Roger, Houston. 

Bob, this is Joe, do you copy? 

Yeah, Jon your loud and clear qo ahead. 

SPACECRAFT Interestingly enough, I'm curious as to what might 

be wrong with the fan? What is the best guess right now? It 
really sounds sick, and it did from the time I turned it on. 

CAPCOM Okay, Joe, we just don't have hypothesis right 

now. There are a couple of prevalent ideas, but I'd just not 
speculate right now. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, that's probably fair. It alnost looks as 

though, the fans mechanically hitting something, maybe that 
something is water inside and there is clearly a controller on it 
of some kind because the controller causes it to draw less and 
loss current until finaly the controller just turns it off and it 
maybe turning it off and it maybe turning it off because its 
overheating, I don't know. 



STS-5 A J R/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl83j GMT 319:11:31 11/15/82 PAGE 1 

SPACECRAFT and maybe turn it off because it's overheated, I 
don't know. 

CAPCOM Okay, we copy Joe. Meantime we'd like to get the 

EMU status check from Bill. 

SPACECRAFT Okay standby. Okay, 02 position is press, EMU 
check, time EV nothing, 100% power left, time left at 7.01, 90% 
02 left, 100% power left, bat volt 20.4, C02 0.9, water temp 90, 
PGA pressure 0.5, 02 pressure 774, airlock pressure 14.8, water 
qas press 14 4, water press 15 1. 

CAPCOM Okay Bill we copy the numbers. Hey Bill, what we'd 

like you to do now is pressurize the suit and lets stabalize it 
about 3 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, purge off is coming closed. Houston, 
Co] umbia . 

CAPCOM Go ahead Columbia. 

SPACECRAFT Roger Bob, what time today is the live TV pass, VT? 

CAPCOM Standby Vance I'll have to dig out my cap. 

SPACECRAFT Oh, I found it, never mind. I thought it wasn't 

on our message, but it is. 

CAPCOM 0<ay Vance, that's what we were going to read it 

off from. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, 0020. 

CAPCOM That's affirm and you're corning through Goldstone 

and Mi la. 

SPACECRAFT Right. Okay Bob, it's more or less stabilized 
again at 3.8 and 3.6 and my clock here stopped, I don't know how 
long I've been at this. 

CAPCOM Okay Bill I show that you have about another minute 

left on that 3 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Okay give me a holler when you think I'm there. 
CAPCOM Okay. 

SPACECRAFT That's the one thing T forgot to reset last night 
was to wind the wntches. 



CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston. We'd like to got Bill 

back in the purge mode on the suit and we'd like to talk to you 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl83j GMT 319:11:31 11/15/82 PAGE 2 



at Botswanna, UHF only site so we'd have to reconfigure to 
primary UHF frequency. 

SPACECRAFT Okay we're on that now, 259 7 and we're on simplex. 

CAPCOM Okay Vance we're about to get Botswanna and we've 

got about 2 minutes left on the pass at Ascention. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. And Bob I'm on purge now and the 3.8 and 3.6 
held up thourghout that 3 minutes. 

CAPCOM Okay Bill we copy. Columbia we're at 30 seconds to 

LOS at ascension, we'll talk to you through Botswanna at 2328. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Bob we copy. 

PAO This is Shuttle Control. Columbia's out of range 

at ascension, next acquistion is Botswanna in 6 minutes. A check 
on Lenoir's suit is continuing, we'll bo back at Botswanna. At 3 
days 23 hours 22 minutes mission elapsed time this is Shuttle 
Control Houston. 

PAO This is Shuttle Control, we have acquisition 

through Botswanna now. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston with you through Botswanna for 5 

minutes . 

SPACECRAFT Okay Bob we copy. And Bob just for your info, 
wo' re starting to get a little dew on th* ' irboard aft window 
that looks out on the pay load bay. It's g> ig cold in this 
attitude apparently. We have a spot of, j.t moisture, on the 
glass, I'd say it's about 3 inches in diameter. 

CAPCOM Firm Vance, we copy 3 inch diameter spot. 

SPACECRAFT And I'm installing an airbaffle to get rid of it. 



END OF TAPE 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl84j GMT 319:11:47 11/15/82 PAGE 1 



CAPCOM and so copy 3-inch diameter spot. 

SPACECRAFT And I'm stalling the air baffle to get rid of it. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston. 

SPACECRAFT Go ahead Bob. 

CAPCOM Okay, you've got some bad news for you. We're 

going to have to terminate the EVA prep. Bill's suit reg is just 
regulating too low for us to continue with that, but we would you 
to do some troubleshooting. We'd like to get Joe's suit 
pressurized and see if Joe's regulator is working at the same 
level . 

SPACECRAFT Okay Bob, we copy. This isn't our day for suits, 
Bob. 

CAPCOM You know how Monday mornings are. 

SPACECRAFT (laughter) I guess you're right. Okay, pressurize 
my suit without me in it, I assume, because it's hot in there 
without that fan. 

CAPCOM That's affirm Joe, without a Joe in it. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, I catch on quick. 

Does that mean you're done with me and I ought to 

get out? 

CAPCOM That's affirm Bill. And Columbia, the reason we're 

just wanting to pressurize Joe's suit is just to see if we got a 
generic regulator problem, or whether we've got a zero g problem, 
or we just don't know what to do about it right now. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Bob, I understand, and just for drill I'm 
repressur izing my suit in some blind hoDe. 

CAPCOM Understand Bill. 

SPACECRAFT And Houston, we just got a hardware alarm. No 
software alarm. It looks like cabin atmosphere probably. I 
think we have a high cabin pressure, you might look. 

CAPCOM Okay Vance, we'll check it. Well Vance, we don't 

see anything down here, t think that's probably a good analysis 
on your part though, we've been doing a lot of suit purges and 
the cabin is warming up a little bit, so it's probably a cabin 
press. And Vance, if you continue to be concerned, you can go to 
R13 and do a memory road and make sure it was a cabin press. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl84j GMT 319:11:47 11/15/82 PAGE 2 

SPACECRAFT Roger, we'll look in to it. Hey Bob, if I press my 
head over to the very Ear left in my helmet I can get the gauge 
up to 3.9, would that matter? 

CAPCOM Good try Bill. 

SPACECRAFT To the top of the gauge. 

CAPCOM Good try, but no cigar. 

SPACECRAFT Somehow I knew. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, we're at 10 seconds from LOS. We'll 

talk to you next through Yarragadee at 2 3 4 6. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, see you at Yarragadee. 

PAO This is Shuttle Control. Columbia out of range at 

Botswana. Next station is Yarragadee in 12 minutes. Equipment 
problems have force a scrub of STS-5 extravehicular activity. A 
fan in Joe Allen's EMU does not operate properly, and apparently 
a regulator on Bill Lenoir's suit is regulating low. The suit 
pressure reached only 3.8 when it should have been between 4.2 
and 4.4. So there will be no EVA today. Originally it had been 
hoped after the fan malfunction that Bill Lenoir would have been 
able to depress the airlock and open the hatch, but not leave the 
airlock so that the test of the EMU could he achieved in that 
manner. However, that is not possible now with the regulator 
problem. We have asked them to pressurize Joe Allen's suit, and 
check the regulator on that suit. Give the experts here on the 
ground some data as to whether it is the generic to the regulator 
or whether it may be a zero g problem or some help on trying to 
run down the cause of the problem. In any event, there will be 
no extravehicular activity today. At 1 flays 23 hours 35 minuter, 
mission elapsed time, this is Shuttle Control Houston. 



END OF TAPE 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl85j GMT 319:11:54 11/15/82 PAGE I 

PAO 3 days 23 hours 35 minutes mission elapsed time. 

This is Shuttle Control Houston. This is Shuttle Control at 3 
days 23 hours 46 minutes. 

CAPCOM with you through Yarragadee for 7 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Houston. Bob or Roy, want to make sure that you 

wanted the suit check done on Allen's suit in the no vent 
position on the helmet, is that affirm? 

CAPCOM Standby Bob, let me get back to you. 

SPACECRAFT We did it once in a no vent position and at the 

rate we're locked up at 4.1. The suit, of course, did not 
pressurize because we're in the no vent position but the 
regulator locked up at 4.1 I say 4 decimal 1. 

CAPCOM Okay, copy that, Bob, standby. 

SPACECRAFT And Bob, some little time I am thinking about but 

we can't get it to pressurize the suit when it's in the NOT, the 
no vent position. 

CAPCOM Okay, we copy, no pressur i zat ion in the normal 

position. 

SPACECRAFT For some reason I'm trying to think why that is. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston, we'd like you to put 

the helmet in the normal Dosition and try to pressurize again. 

SPACECRAFT That's what we're doing. It's in the normal and 

we can't get it to pressurize. 

CAPCOM Okay. Columbia, this is Houston, would you verify 

that all the suit connections are still firm, the gloves, the 
waist ring, etc. 

SPACECRAFT We're checking those. 

CAPCOM And the purge valve. 

SPACECRAFT ('. loves are very firm. 

CAPCOM How about the purge valve Bob? 

SPACECRAFT Yon, when the put the purge valve up it doesn't 

flow. It's just not flowing at all. 

CAPCOM And also the helmet purge, Bob. 



SPACECRAFT 



Nothing flowing there either. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl85j GMT 119:11:54 11/15/82 PAGE 2 



CAPCOM Okav. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Bob, just a recap, we've got the suit on and 

all the joints locked well. Got the helmet in the normal 
position. Secondly, depress lever to press, and right now we've 
got the helmet purge valve open. There is no flow apparent at 
all that we can see at this point. Back to lock on the helmet 
f low . 

CAPCOM Hey Bob, we'd like you to close the helmet purge 

valve and let's wait for about 3 minutes and see if we can get 
some pressure there. 

SPACECRAFT Alright, suppose it doesn't act like it's doing 

anything. It's not flowing anything. 

CAPCOM It might take a while to pressurize Bob. We'll 

give it about 3 minutes and see what happens. 

SPACECRAFT I agree that it'll take a while to pressurize the 

do you expect that needle to start coming off the peg a little 
bit . 

CAPCOM Bob, for your information. The reason we're 

waiting so long is that when there is a body in this suit it 
takes a quite a bit of the volume and with all that free volume 
in the suit now expected take quite a while to pressurize. 

SPACECRAFT Okav , Bob, but I can't hear anything flowing. I 
guess that's what's got me concerned more than anything. And 
Bob, one thing to note, on both suits the 02 actuator lever has 
been very difficult to work in getting mine from off to press the 
first time it was very difficult to go in that direction. And 
then once I got into press, from press to off was easy but from 
off to IV was very, very difficult. And, in general, you can go 
from off to 1 side, but going the other way is very difficult 
until you set some sort of pattern. And then it doesn't like to 
go the other way. And, of course, we never tried th* EVA 
pos i t ion . 

CAPCOM Okay, we copy those comments Bill and for Vance, 

we'd like to get a check on the cabin pressure. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, standby 1. And Bob for your information I 

am now out of the prebreathe, they got my helmet and gloves off, 
I'm coming out. Cabin pressure is 15.2. 

CAPCOM Okay, Vance, 15.2. And Columbia, we're 

approaching LOS. We'll talk to you next through Hawaii. 

SPACECRAFT Roger, and understand the TV will come up at 

Goldstone. END OF TAPE

CAPCOM And Columbia we're approaching LOS, we'll talk to 

you next through Hawaii. 

SPACECRAFT Roger, and T understand that the TV will come up 

at Goldstone through Mila, is that right? 

CAPCOM That's affirmative Vance, and Hawaii will be 

coming up at 1.1 minutes. 

PAO This is Shuttle Control. Yarragadee has loss of 

signal, next acquisition through Hawaii in 17 minutes. Columbia 
will be in orbit number 65 before reaching Hawaii. Bill Lenoir 
getting out of his pressure suit now and still attempting to 
pressurize Joe Allen's suit to check the regulator on that 
suit. We expect some television during the next, pass over the 
continental United States through both Goldstone and Merritt 
Island stations. At 3 days 23 hours 55 minutes mission elapsed 
time this is Shuttle Control Houston. 

PAO This is Shuttle Control at 4 days 10 minutes 

mission elapsed time, Columbia up on acquisition through 
Hawai i . 

CAPCOM Columbia, Hosuton with you through Hawaii for 8 

minutes . 

SPACECRAFT This is Columbia loud and clear. 

CAPCOM Roger, you're loud and clear. 

SPACECRAFT And Roy we never got any pressures to show up on 

Joe's suit at all off. 

CAPCOM Roger copy, no pressure on the suit. 

SPACECRAFT How many minutes do we have on this pass with 

Goldstone and Mila? 

CAPCOM Okay, we've got 6 minutes on the Goldstone pass, 

we have a break for about a minute and a half and then we have 7 
and a half minutes on Mila. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. Columbia, Houston, we would 

like for you to check Joe's suit and make sure that the Li OH 
cannister was installed. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, you hit it. This is Columbia. 



CAPCOM 



Go ahead. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl86j GMT 319:12:12 11/15/82 PAGE 2 

SPACECRAFT Roger, we reset the limit on cabin press causing a 

warning, we set the software upper limit to 15.6 and the hardware 
to a tenth of a volt higher. 

CAPCOM Okay copy software to 15.6, 7 did not copy the 

hardware . 

SPACECRAFT 3.9 volts. 

CAPCOM Roger, copy. 

SPACECRAFT Didn't know what that would buy us Roy, but we 

decided to go ahead and just move it up a little bit, it was 3.8 
we set it at 3.9 and I figured what we could tell you, you could 
tell us what we did it on. 

CAPCOM Roger. 

SPACECRAFT We're starting to get continuous alarms Roy. 

CAPCOM Roger Vance, we are getting a little concerned 

about the cabin pressure increase and also that's why after you 
checked this EaOH cannister, if the suit doesn't start 
pressurizing pretty quickly we would like to accommodate that 
act ivity . 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we got that Roy. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, do you have anything set up for 

TV at Goldstone, what we'd like to know is whether or not you're 
going to be doing live or VTR? 

SPACECRAFT We started to change gears but we're working up 

something live for you Roy. 

CAPCOM Okay, that's great Vance.

SPACECRAFT We started change gears but we're v/orking up 

something live for you Roy. 

CAPCOM Okay, that's great Vance. 

SPACECRAFT You hear me at all. Yes, good, yes wonder if he's 

reading me. I'll just start. Yes. Okay. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, we're 20 seconds LOS. We'll be 

seeing you at Buckhorn at 2 1 and reminder we see the TV in the 
panel mode. 

SPACECRAFT Roger. We'll put it in. Roy, did you hear any of 

my comments onboard here when we went to VOX box on mine. 

CAPCOM We're going LOS , Rob, I'll talk to you at Ruckhorn 

in just a couple of minutes. 

PAO This is Shuttle Control. Hawaii has loss cf 

signal. Buckhorn is next in about a 1 minute and 1/2 and then 
when wc have Goldstone AOS we expect television. lave television 
from Columbia. When we came up on Hawaii Joe Allen's suit still 
had not been pressurized. Apparently, the lithium hydroxidido 
cannister had not been replaced. When that is done at it is 
believed that it will pressure. Excess oxygen has been dumping 
into the cab and causing the cabin pressure to rise slightly. 
We're about less than a minute away from acquisition through 
Buckhorn now. We'll standby for the pass over the United 
States . 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, with you through Buckhorn for 8 

minutes. Columbia, Houston, with you through Ruckhorn for 8 
minutes . 

SPACECRAFT Roger, Houston, how do you copy this? 

CAPCOM Okay, wo copy you => by now and while we're waiting 

to come up Goldstone like for you to reconfigure to standard UHF 
configuration. AIR, audio center UHF air to ground 1 and 2 to 
off. 

SPACECRAFT Standby a minute Roy. television is coming up 

first. We're all about here in the flood in middeck. 

CAPCOM Okay, Roger, we've got a picture now. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, do you have the middeck or <1o you have the 

out the window picture? 

CAPCOM Got a good shot of you on the middeck. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Roy, I thought this morning since we've had 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl87j GMT: 319:12:34 11/15/82 PAGE 2 

a little change of plans here I thought I might demonstrate to 
you and to everybody else in activity that we have to do every 
morning here on Columbia and the millions of American men I'm 
sure at this very moment are getting out their razar blades and 
getting ready to do a little shaving. So if you'll bear with me 
I'll go ahead and demonstrate it to you. First of all, we have 
our dop kit that we take the shaving cream out of. Do a quick 
lather up there. Never have to worry about putting things back 
for awhile. If you want a little bit of water we just reach over 
and grab the water gun. And we go ahead and start shaving. And 
since we don't want things to get too far away we just go ahead 
and reach back and grab that. Grab the razor. So you see, Mac 
is all over. It's very needy that we keep a clean shaven face up 
here and we're real it's real simple to do and real easy and the 
fast gives it a very not a very difficult task at all. We just 
go ahead and keep our feet planted on a spot on the floor and 
keep them pulled away. Cause if we don't do that we'd just float 
right out of the picture. 

CAPCOM Good show Bob. You look very proficient at that 

exercise. Joe, we are not getting audio. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Rov , What's funnv is that I'm too young to 

shave but I'm not too young to play with toys and we have 1 or 2 
aboard that are interesting demonstrations of zero gravity. As a 
matter of fact, Columbia depends on devices like this working all 
the time, not toys necessarily but gyroscopes. And I'd like to 
show you a couple. 

CAPCOM We've lost your audio (garble). 

SPACECRAFT Yes, I'm sorry. It's a small one, a rather normal 

gyroscope that I hope you can see. 



END OF TAPE 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t!88j GMT 319:12:44 11/15/82 PAGE 1 



SPACECRAFT ...gravity. As a matter of fact, Columbia depends 
on devices like this working all the time, not toys necessarily, 
but gyroscopes and I would like to show you a couple. 

CAPCOM We've lost your audio there, Joe. 

SPACECRAFT Yeah, I'm sorry. It's a small one, a rather normal 
gyroscope, that I hope you can see. Are you holdin it? And it 
has no stability at all, until you spin it. But once run, its 
usually stable. It remembers which way its going, that was of 
course the principle on which the satellites which we launched a 
couple of days ago, is based. The remain stable just like 
that. Houston, another interesting gyroscope, with beautiful 
stability like that. It also is stable. Like that one, turn it 
on and then, this is like a book, its shaped like a book as you 
can see. Rut if we put it sideways like this it has a rather 
peculiur property. It doesn't like to stay stable at all. 

Like some people we know. 

Okay, I hope you can see that. 

CAPCOM Got a great picture, Joe. And Joe, GNC is 

computered a gyrodrift compensation, you'll be uplinking. 

SPACECRAFT Very good. See how it goes. 

CAPCOM We've lost your audio, Joe. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Roy, we're getting some outside pictures which 
we can send down to you in a few minutes. Bill has a model of 
the pay loads we deployed, and we haven't challenged it, but we 
can get it to spin pretty well. Hang on just a minute. 

CAPCOM Okay, Joe. We've lost your picture and will pick 

you up in Mila in just a couple of minutes. I'll let you know 
when we've got you back again. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston. Reminder, we have no 

control over the TV. You all still have it in the panel. 



SPACECRAFT Roger. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, with you thru Mila for 7 and 1/2 

minutes and we have a TV picture back. 

SPACECRAFT Roqer , Roy. Rill's got a model, a U- jets, I think 
your looking at him now. 

CAPCOM Roger, we see it. 



CAPCOM 



That's also a gyro-scope. And we'd caused it to 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl88j GMT 319:12:44 11/15/82 PAGE 2 

spin before we deployed it the other day, both of them. And 
because it was soinning, it was very stable. And when it fired 
its large rocket engine. This one isn't very well balanced, but 
this is basically what it looked like. And then after the large 
rocket down here at the bottom fired, it separated and contained 
a spin in its transfer orbit until the apogee burn from the motor 
on the top here, and then eventualy the aft skirt deployed and 
the omni deployed. And this is the way it looks right now, they 
both look, with the antennae pointing right towards Earth, always 
towards Earth. And the cylindrical part of the satellite 
spinning and drawing power from the sun because the cylinder is 
mostly solar cells around the outside. Thats where it gets its 
energy. 

CAPCOM Great show, Joe and Bill. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, and we're steering one of the cameras down 
towards the ground, one of the payload bay cameras. We'll see 
what we can pick up from there in a moment. 

Okay Roy, we have the terminator coming up and 
one of our aft cameras, here you can see it. We're coming up to 
cross shortly the Monterrey Coast. Directly over Monterray, 
probably over the Gulf of Mexico and will be coming up on the 
Florida oenninsula before too long. And if our calculations 
onboard are correct, we'll be going right over the launch site 
sometime here on this pass. 

CAPCOM Okay, Bob. 



END OF TAPE 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl89j GMT 319:12:51 11/15/82 PAGE 1 

SPACECRAFT ..directly over Montrey, probably over the Gulf of 

Mexico, it'll be coming up on Florida peninsula where you are. 
And if our calculations on our board are correct we 11 be going 
the launch site sometime here on this pass. 

CAPCOM Okay Bob we have a very good picture. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. And Roy while we're sitting here looking at 

the Earth let me tell you about Joe's suit. We did get it 
reconfigured and it pumped back up to 4.4 and 4.3 on the gage and 
the digital respectively. 

CAPCOM Okay we copy, 4.4 and 4 3. 

SPACECRAFT {garble) Gulf of Mexico we can look up ahead and 

see some beach area of, toward the north of us, looks like 
there's an awful lot of cloud cover down in this area and 
probably will not get much of a si q ht of Florida, I'm afraid. A 
tremendously spectacular view Roy when you stand here, or better 
float here over top the upper window looking right down in the 
ground area here with all the cloud cover and looking on '-he 
Florida coast. 

CAPCOM Well it looks pretty fantastic from here too 

Bob. 

SPACECRAFT Yes, we'd wished we had a little more time to 

prepare for this TV but of course we had the unfortunate problem 
with the equipment on the, for the space suits and had to scrub 
th* walk which kind of put a (garble). Right now we ' re coming up 
on a very beautiful coral looking right out our right wing, left 
wing, we had been looking down, we see so:ie Islands and some very 
clear qreen coral waters, it's lust a beautiful area to go scuba 
diving' it looks like. Yes, that's actually the southern coast of 
florida it looks like and, or, area around the southern part of 
Florida the water's very green, and a lot of shallows down there, 
with the eye it's just beautiful, all shades of qreen and blue 
which the camera can't quite pick up. Roy, how much more time do 
we have on this pans? 

CAPCOM Okay Vance, we've got you for about 2 and a half 

more minutes of TV time. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Rob's digging out the map right now. The, 

just exactly where we are in this, oh yes it's the Bahamas, very 
striking. Just came over the tounge of the Ocean. Looks like, 
have to admit that when you qo around the world once in 90 
minutes that it's hard to keep t ack wf-ro you are or exactly 
what point over Florida you may cross. Sometimes up there wo re 
wonder inq if we're in one place and we passed it abo t 5 minutes 
aqo and we're probably hundreds of miles passed it. Roy looking 
out the side window, looks like wo just came over nahamo, tounge 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t!89j GMT 319:12:51 11/15/82 PAGE 2 



of the Ocoan and the Eastern tip of Cuba. Now you' 11 liKe, whc.t 
we'll do is we'll give vou a view of our payload bay which is in 
a shadow, you can see the Earth behind it, got to tilt the camera 
up a little bit and you can see the tail, a vertical fin, the 
payload bay is in a shadow, the cap like looking device you see 
directly back, is the covering of to keep the house the 
satellites that we deployed a couple or three days aqo. And Roy, 
you might think thai: we painted the upper most part of the tail 
white, it's just the part that's up in the SunLi^ht and the 
(garble) of the forward part of the Orbiter has been right across 
the vertical stabalizer for a number of hours now and it doesn't 
move parentlv an inch. .'he Orbiter is that stable as it travels 
around the Earth. 

CAPCOM Certainly a beautiful picture guys and Orbiter 

being very stable certainly helped us get those satellites off 
and in fine shape the other day. 

SPACECRAFT Hey Roy, I've got a question on the suit. Did you 

want us to secure and pack everthing up, or should we anticipate 
some more trouble shooting. 

CAPCOM Standby Bill. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we're starting to go over the Atlantic now 

and I guess we'll get back into the swing of the work stage here, 
we look forward to returning tomorrow. 

CAPCOM Roger and in answer to the question, we'd like for 

you to qo ahead and stow the suits, we're finished with our 
toubleshooting. 

SPACECRAFT Okay we'll make all the comments in our log books 

and talk about it when we get back. 

CAPCOM Okay, that'll be great and we're about to go LOS 

and just lost the picture. See you at Ascension at 5 0. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Sorry we didn't have time to practice that 

a little bit.

CAPCOM We're finished with our troubleshooting. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, put all our comments in our log books and 
talk about them when we get back. 

CAPCOM Okay, that will be great. We're about to go LOS 

and we just lost the picture. See you at Ascension at 5 0. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Hey we are sorry we didn't have a chance to 
practice that a little more. 

PAO This is Shuttle Control. Bermuda has loss of 

signal. Columbia on orbit 65 with next acquisition with 
Ascension Island in 10 1/2 minutes. Rather long series of 
television during this pass thru Goldstone and Merritt Island, 
Florida. Both within the cabin and Earth shots, payload bay 
shots. Crew reporting that Joe Aliens suit has pressurized 
properly to 4.3 and 4.4. Those suits are now being stowed. 
Troubleshooting is complete on that, for the time being. Until 
after the mission. At 4 days, 40 minutes, mission elapsed time, 
and this is Shuttle Control Houston. This is Shuttle Control. 
Columbia coming within range of the Ascension Island Tracking 
station now. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston with you thru Ascension for 7 

minutes . 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Roy. Loud and clear at the moment. Bill and 
Joe are putting away to suits. I ' r.t looking out the window taking 
pictures and we're cleaning up around here. 

CAPCOM Okay, Vance. We'd like to reverse course just 

slightly, we're getting a few ideas in that might pay-off in 
additional troubleshooting on the suits and we wondered if may be 
we could terminate closing out the suits until about 4 days and 3 
hours. We won't hold you longer than that. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Roy. Tell you were we are right now. I'm in 
the airlock writing my notes down between the suits. Joe's suit 
is still pressurized from the previous test, it ha-i been in off 
for over 1/2 an hour and he is still indicating 4.3 and 4.2 gage 
and DCM, respectively. Mine is still also pressurized having 
been off for about 30 or 45 minutes now. It's indicating 3.5 and 
3.4 gage and DCM, respectively. And they are just, sitting here, 
we haven't done anything else. SCU power is on, but that's all. 

CAPCOM Roger, we copy. 

SPACECRAFT Houston, Columbia. You still there. 

CAPCOM Roger, Columbia, Houston. And standby we're 

checking to make sure this is a good suit configuration to leave

them for a while. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, and do you cancel the remaining two live TV 
passes since we won't have an EVA? 

CAPCOM Vance, we'll let that he your call. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, I think we might as well because the EVA was 
going to be super interesting, we'll be just sort of picking up 
around the house and doing a little testing today. 

CAPCOM Roger Vance. We concur with that was a great TV 

show you put on for us this last Dass, and we realy appreciate 
it. That is a good configuration on the suits, so you can just 
hold on doing anything else with them for a while. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, just to clarify. I've got mode power and 
looks like main A on both suits and presently the oxygen is open. 



CAPCOM Okay, we copy. 

SPACECRAFT We're gonna go ahead and turn the audio power off 
though.

SPACECRAFT Okay, I cycled 10 times, from off to IV. And the 

first 9 times the pressure went to 0.4 on the PGAP indication on 
the digitial, the 10th time it went to 0.5, I did it an 11th 
time, which came back to 0.4. Each time in cycling back from IV 
to off, about half way back, you hear a poof, very much like you 
hear on the SLP check, and at that time the PGAP indication 
jumped up to about 2.2. It does not occur going from off to IV, 
and if you stop and hold the select lever in the poof position, 
as I call it, the pressure will rise about 2.9 to 3.0 and 
stabalize. And the position will indicate aft dry ampersand to 
ampersand, blank, echo, over.

CAPCOM That's still in work, Bob. We really don't know, 

it's just a troubleshooting right now. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston, we're 'f. seconds to 

LOS, we'll talk to you at Guam at 0309. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Bob, and we're sotting up for the LVLH test. 

CAPCOM Okay Bob. 

PAO This is Shuttle Control, Columbia is out of range 

now at Botswana, Guam in 24 minute:;. Bill Lenoir is getting back 
into his pressure suit, going through a couple of pages of the 
checklist up to the suit purqe. At Guam, we intend to pass up 
additional procedures in an attempt to get more pressure ojt of 
the regulator on his suit. At 4 days, 2 hours, 45 minutes, 
mi^'ion elapsed time, this Shuttle Control, Houston. 

PAO This is Shuttle Control at 4 days, 3 hours, 8 

minutes, mission elapsed time. Guam has acquisition of signal. 

CA n COM Columbia, Houston with you at Guam for 6 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Roger, Roy, and the, we're in the middle of LVLH 

test and it 1 " really well behaved, working very well. 

CAPCOM Okay, and we're happy to hoar that. 

SPACECRAFT And Roy, I'm in my LCBG just about to get into the 

suit. 



CAPCOM 



Okay, copy Bill.

SPACECRAFT And Roy, I gave it, 1 false and roll, but it sure 

doesn't look like it's getting a tenth of a degree per second. 
It's rolling in the roll, but I don't think I got a tenth of a 
degree per second on it, one false. 

SPACECRAFT Houston, Columbia, are you there? 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, it looked like we're residual 

rates to us, and we've got some message traffic on the EVA 
procedure coming up. I'd like to take the next 50 seconds for 
LOS

SPACECRAFT Houston, Columbia, are you there? 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, it looked like residual rates 

to us, and we got some message traffic on the EVA procedure 
coming up. I'd like to take the next 50 seconds for LOS to give 
you a start on that. And then we'll cover the rest of it at 
Hawai i . 

SPACECRAFT Okay, you want me to hit another pulse then? 

CAPCOM Yes, go ahead. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Roy, I've just gotten into the hard upper 

torso, and I'm on the hard line Comm. 

CAPCOM Okay. Well we'll just go ahead and continue 

getting into the suit, and you can configure EV2 suit as 
follows. Check 02 actucator off, open the purge valve, remove 
and transfer to the middeck, the lower torso in the helmet, then 
connect EV2 LCGV to the EMU 2 and I'll get back to you at Hawaii 
with the rest. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

PAO This is Shuttle Control, Columbia is out of range 

at Hawaii now, at Guam. Next station is Hawaii in 6 minutes. 
Where additional procedures for checking out both suits will be 
passed up. At 4 days 3 hours 16 minutes Mission Elapsed Time, 
this is Shuttle Control Houston. 

PAO This is Shuttle Control at 4 days 3 hours 22 

minutes, Mission Elapsed Time. Hawaii has acquisition of 
Columbia . 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston with you through Hawaii for 7 

minutes . 

SPACECRAFT Okay Houston, we've got you, do you read me? 

CAPCOM Roger, your 5 by, and I'd like to give you an 

overview now on the shoot, troubleshooting. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, I'm hanging here in the suit, I don't have 
the helmet on yet, but I do have everything else connected. The 
gloves are on. 

CAPCOM Okay, good. Okay the basic plan is, after we get 

Joe's EMU configured properly we're going to depress the airlock 
to 9 psi and have you do some troubleshooting on the fan, and see 
if we can get it to operate better in the lower pressure, that's 
the baste purpose of the thing. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t!97j GMT 319:15:33 11/15/82 PAGE 2 



SPACECRAFT Okay that's pretty much what I had guessed 

although I guessed you might be going to five. 

CAPCOM Okay, well good try, and of course we would also 

hope as a side light that your pressure regulator would work 
better than it did last time, and one condition for this whole 
test is that it work as well as it did before. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, understand. 

CAPCOM Okay, now I gave you the configuration for the EV2 

suit, over Guam do you need me to repeat that? 

SPACECRAFT No, that's fairly simple, you want essentially the 
helmet and the lower torso out of here, and you want the LCBG 
connected, that's the main part of it with the purge valve open. 

CAPCOM That's affirmative and make sure you've got power 

to both suits. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

CAPCOM Okay now, on page 3-2, of your EVA checklist, I'll 

go over the changes on that page. 

SPACECRAFT Stand by one. 

SPACECRAFT Okay go ahead. 

CAPCOM Okay, Bill, first of all you can delete any 

reference to pre-breath ing in column two and three. Secondly, 
under IV one procedures in column three you can delete the first 
five lines. Okay, then under airlock depress, obviously change 
the 5 to a 9, and following airlock depress valve closed, wo want 
you to add 02 actuator to press, then you can delete the rest of 
the page. Did you copy that Bill? 

SPACECRAFT Okay Roy, did you copy me? 

CAPCOM No I didn't copy you, did you qet all those 

chanqos in column 3. 

SPACECRAFT I'm reading them back, IV 1, all of his stuff up 

there is scratched, and mid page whore it says AW82B airlock 
depress valve 5, change S to a 9, and all other references are to 
9 psi, and after airlock depress valve closed, 02 actuator press 
and then delete the rest. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl97j GMT 319:15:33 11/15/82 PAGE 3 



CAPCOM That's affirmative, 

follows. After you have depressed 
cycle the EMU 2 fan switch off and 
on the panel, 



Now the rest of the procedure 
the 9 psi, we want you to 
then on and check the current 



END OF TAPE 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl98j GMT 319:15:45 11/15/82 PAGE 1 



SPACECRAFT ...and mid page where it says AW 82B airlock 

depress valve. 5 change 5 to a 9, then all other references are 
to 9 psi, and after airlock depress valve closed, 02 actuator 
press and then delete the rest. 

CAPCOM That's affirmative. Now, the rest o£ the 

procedure follows. After you have depressed the 9 psi, we want 
you to cycle EMU 2 fan switch off and then on, and check the 
current on the panel. It should read 2-1/2 amps nominally. If 
the current drops to a steady state of 1 amp, you will, of 
course, know that the fan has dropped off the line. If that 
happens, we want you to cycle the fan switch off and then back on 
again and keep repeating the procedure for 30 minutes. And one 
other note, Bill. If it does stay on with the amps in the 
nominal range, leave it on for 15 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Roy. I understand. I'm going to take the 
EMU 2 fan from off to on. When I get to 9 psi, I'm going to 
check the current, it should be around 2.5 at that point, 
(garble) is the fan being off. If it's off, I'll cycle it for 30 
minutes and if it's on, I'll leave it run for 15. 

CAPCOM That's affirmative. 

CAPCOM Okay, Bill. When you complete that procedure or 

whatever point you get to, we would like for you to hold there 

until we have comm again and, of course, unless in your judgement 

you need to terminate for safety reasons. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Understand that. How do you want me to 

take EV2 suit down with me? Do you want it just on SCA and the 
fan off? 

CAPCOM That sounds good, nil. 1. 



SPACECRAFT Okay. 

CAPCOM Okay, Columbia, Houston. We're 1 minute LOS. 

We'll see you at Buckhorn at 33 and we can go over anything that 
you have a question on. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Roy. Verify you want me to go down at IV 
pressure? Or do you want press? 

CAPCOM I'll answer that in a second, Bill. But make sure 

and limit your purge to 12 minutes so we don't raise the cabin 
pressure too much. 



SPACECRAFT I under stcd that. You want me to go to 9 psi and 

press or IV. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl98j GMT 319:15:45 11/15/82 PAGE 2 



CAPCOM Okay. Let's go and press. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. That's what I thought. 

PAO This is Shuttle Control. Columbia is out of range 

of the Hawaii station. Just barely acquires Buckhorn on this 
orbit, about a 4 minute pass there, beginning in 2 minutes. 
Columbia now on revolution 67. CAPCOM Roy Bridges over Hawaii 
passed up more detailed explanation of the procedure to Bill 
Lenoir who will depress the airlock to 9 pounds per square inch 
and attempt to see if the fan on Joe Allen's suit will operate at 
that reduced pressure. At the same time, they are hoping that 
the delta in pressures will break loose his actuator, regulator 
on his suit. About a minute away now from Buckhorn. We] 11 
continue to stand by at 4 days, 3 hours, 32 minutes mission 
elapsed time. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston with you through Buckhorn for 4 

minutes. 

SPACECRAFT H. 1 lo, Houston. 

CAPCOM You're 5-by. 

SPACECRAFT And I'm at 3.8 psi. 

CAPCOM Good . 

SPACECRAFT And Roy, if you're still there, I just started the 

12 minute purge. 

CAPCOM Okay. Great, Bill. And for your information we 

have about a minute and a half to LOS if you have any questions. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Well, I got 12 minutes where I don't think 

I'm going to have any questions. I'm just going to sit here. 

CAPCOM Okay. We've got a long LOS and we won't be up 

again until about 30 minutes later. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. By that time, I should see a 9 psi and tell 
you what happened. 

CAPCOM Okay. That's what we figured.

STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT tl99j GMT : 319 : 15 : 54 11/15/82 PAGE 1 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Well, I've got 12 minutes where I don]t 
think I'm going to have any questions. I'm just going to sit 
here. 

CAPCOM Okay. We've qot a long LOS and we won't be up 

again until about 30 minutes, later. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, by that time then, I should see a 9 psi and 

tell what happened. 

CAPCOM Okay. That's what we figured. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. We're 30 seconds LOS. We'll 

see you at Botswana at 04:12. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. We'll see you at Botswana. 

PA0 This is Shuttle Control. Buckhorn has loss of 

signal with Columbia. Bill Lenoir has begun the 12 minute purge 
of his suit. Next acquisition is at Botswana in 35 minutes. By 
that time, Lenoir believes he should be in the airlock depressed 
to 9 psi and hopes to have a report on the results of some of the 
procedures. At 4 days, 3 hours, 38 minutes mission eiapsed 
time. This is Shuttle Control, Houston.

STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t200j GMT 319:16:34 11/15/82 PAGE 1 

SPACECRAFT do you want that (garble) to hurry, I can pop the 

purge valve for a little bit. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston. Bill you can use your 

helmet purge valve to bring it down closer to the pressure that 
it was regulating before, and then let's see how the, where the 
pressure stops when it's coming down from the top. 

SPACECRAFT Okay* it's reading 4.0 right now. 

CAPCOM Okay Bill, while we're waiting for this pressure 

to equalize here, I'd like to pass on a note to you about backing 
out here on your post EVA. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, go ahead. 

CAPCOM Okay, the first column on page 6-2, there is a - 

not applicable, on the second column here, before we equalize 
the, before we open the interhatch equalizer valve, equalizer 
valve to normal. We'd like you to go on your suit, 02 actuator 
to IV, then interhatch equal i ziation valve to normal. And you 
can follow the rest of the procedures as written. When you get 
through with the procedures on 6-2, go to the post EVA entry prep 
on page 7-2. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Bob, I just now got paper and pencil, say all 

that again, 6-2 and qo. 

CAPCOM Okay 6-2, you can delete the entire first 

column. Under the second column there, where it says interhatch 
equalization valve to normal. Before you accomplish that step, 
take your 02 actuator to IV. In the second column, your actions 
will read, your first action will read, 02 actuator IV, your 
second action will read interhatch equalization valve to 
normal. Then you can continue the rest of the nominal 
procedures . 

SPACECRAFT Starts with my 02 actuator to IV, and then 

interhatch normal. 

CAPCOM Riqht, interhatch equalization valve to normal. 

SPACECRAFT Roger, understand. 

CAPCOM And when you get through with those procedures on 

page 6-2, you can go to the post EVA entry prep on page 7-2. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, understand, post EVA entry preps 7-2 will be 
as published, is that true? 

CAPCOM That's affirmative. And wo got 30 seconds to 

LOS. Bill how's your suit doing? 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t200j GMT 319:16:34 11/15/82 PAGE 2 



SPACECRAFT Minutes for me to evaluate a mini work station, 

and some restraints in here as long as I'm 0-g pressurized? 

CAPCOM Yeah Bill, as lonq as it doesn't take too long. 

We're going to lose you here in about 10 seconds and we'll pick 
you back up at Indian Ocean station in about 2 minutes. 



Okay. 

What's your suit pressure now? 
3.6 on the guage . 
Okay, we copy. 
The numbers.

SPACECRAFT 

PAO This is Shuttle Control, Botswana has loss of 

signal. About a minute away from acquisition throuqh the Indian 
Ocean station. During this pass, Bill Lenoir reporting that the 
fan for Joe Allen's suit does not behave any better at the lower 
pressure than it did before, exhibits the same behavior. We'll 
stand by for acquisition at Indian Ocean. Lenoir now will begin 
equalizing the pressure in the airlock and will come out of there 
into the cabin. Going through some of the post EVA procedures, 
will get out of his suit. Indian Ocean station has locked on to 
Columbia, now. 

CAPCOM

SPACECRAFT Roger, Bob. And prior to securing your, Joe's 

mini work station, I turned the foot restraints around, I'm going 
to get in them and tie the shark hook off here against one of the 
suit stands and just see how it is and move around a little.

SPACECRAFT 



Ok, tv Bill. 



Bob are you still there? 



CAPCOM Yeah, we're with you for another 2 and a half 

minutes, Bill. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Dob, I'm upside down in the foot restraints 

facing the interhatch, and I've evaluated what I call the shark 
hook as a restraint, I, by tying it off on this little handrail 
under the hatch. I guess it would bo over it to you. And I have 
to confess, it works better as a control point restraint than I 
would have guessed. Ask the EVA guys if they can think of 
anything else I can look at real quick like, while I'm in here 
pressurized to 0-g. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t200j GMT 319:16:34 11/15/82 PAGE 3 

CAPCOM Okay Bill, they're on line, we'll qet back to you 

pretty quick. 

SPACECRAFT And Bob, while you're taling to them, it looks 

like my suit is locked up in pressure at 3.7 on both the guage 
and on the DCM meter.

SPACECRAFT Yes. 

CAPCOM Columbia, this is Houston. Bill, we're fresh out 

of ideas down here about the subject you're doing there, if 
you've got some tethers with you, you might evaluate the tethers, 
and the velcro and the arms. 

SPACECRAFT Yes, okay, that's easy though. Okay. I'll do 

that I've got tethers, I'll evaluate that, I also turned this 
foot restraint around and just evaluate access to the outer 
hatch . 

CAPCOM Okay, and we're going LOS right now. Guam will be 

next at 0445.

loss of signal, next acquisition at Guam in 17 minutes. Rill 
Lenoir is still in the airlock, while he is there in a 
pressurized suit ho is evaluating the foot restraints in the 
airlock in a mini work station in that airlock. He reported his 
suit seems to be regulating at an average of 3.7 so, the reduced 
pressure apparently has not freed up the regulator on his suit 
either as some had hoped. At 4 days 4 hours 29 minutes, Mission 
Elapsed Time, this is Shuttle Control, Houston.

CAPCOM Yeah, it's been a real nice flight for us. We saw 

the entry team walking outside rubbing their eyes, wondering what 
that big bright thing way up in the sky. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston. We've got a couple of notes 

for you if you've qot a minute to copy. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Mike. Let her rip. 

CAPCOM Roger. We'd like to configure to PCS System 2 

here, panel L2. We'd like the System 2 reg inlet now to close 
and then down on M010W, we'd like the N2 crossover valve to 
open. And that'll get us off the System 1 which caused the alarm 
last night. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Understand. Rut right now, you'd like to 
configure PCS 2 and leave the N2 rog closed on System 2 up 
(garble) usually leave closed, and down on M010W open N2 
crossover . 

CAPCOM That's correct. And one additional note, before 

the fire smoke detector test which is scheduled at 7 plus 30 
tonight, we'd like you to cycle the circuit breaker on panel 
015. That's smoke detector bay I Bravo/3 Alpha. We'd like you 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t203j GMT 319:17:25 11/15/82 PAGE 2 

to open it, close it. That resets the trip logic. When you're 
per?orming that circuit A test, be sure and hold in for 1 minute, 
or until the 3 Alpha alarms come on, whichever is first. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Which breaker is that again, Mike? 

CAPCOM Okay. It's on panel 015, 0 Charley. It's smoke 

deteccor bay 1 Bravo/3 Alpha. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. And you want - that (garble) pulled and 
cycled when we do the test? 

CAPCOM That's affirmative. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston. You can cycle that circuit 

breaker any time, just before you do that fire smoke detector 
test and we're going to go LOS for about 2 minutes and talk to 
you through IOS. 

SPACECRAFT Got my hand on i t . Can I go ahead and cycle it, 
Mike? 

CAPCOM That's affirmative. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, we're with you again through IOS 

for 6 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Roger, Mike. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston. A weather message should be 

coming up now. 

SPACECRAFT Say again, Mike. 

SPACECRAFT Houston, Columbia. How do you copy? 

CAPCOM Roger, Columbia. Have you loud and clear. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. Did you have a message for us here? We cut 
you out or you cut us out or something.

SPACECRAFT Houston, Columbia, how you copy? 

CAPCOM Roger, Columbia, have you loud and clear. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, did you have a message for us there we cut 

you out, or you cut us out, or something? 

CAPCOM That's negative, we haven't sent anything up, Bob, 

except to tell you the weather message was coming up. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, we copy. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston with a minute to go here at 

IOS. We're going to move up the private medical conference 1 
REV, that'll be the next thing you have here at Hawaii at 6 + 
33. We moved it up just to give you a better coverage there. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, were 30 seconds to go to 

LOS, Hawaii is next at 6 + 3 3, with a private medical 
conference . 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Mike, we'll see you there. The doctor. 

CAPCOM Roger, and once again, we just moved that up to 

give you a better coverage this pass. 

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

PAO Mission Control, Houston, 4 days, 6 hours, 6 

minutes, mission elapsed time. Columbia has passed out of range 
of the tracking station at Indian Ocean. Crew is primarily 
involved in cabin stowage, getting things cleaned up in 
preparation for entry day. Only have about 3 and a half hours 
remaining in their day before their scheduled to be asleep. This 
is Mission Control, Houston. 

PAO Mission Control, Houston, standing by for 

acquisition through Guam. 

PAO Mission Control, Houston, 4 days, 6 hours, 2"> 

minutes. Not expecting any communication on this pass, barely 
skirting the edge of the range of the Guam tracking station, 
orbit number 69. Spacecraft is just about to pass into daylight, 
and we'll be reacquiring in about 7 minutes and 40 seconds over 
Hawaii, and that'll be about a 7 and a half minute pas'?. This is 
Mission Control, Houston. 

PAO Mission Control, Houston at 4 days, 6 hours, 33

Hawaii where there will be a private medical conference. Crew is 
back on the nominal timeline. And at this time, they are 
probably still going through a cabin stowage and configuration

for entry. And then are scheduled to go into their mealtime. 
This is Mission Control, Houston. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, with 4 minutes to go in this 

pass . 

SPACECRAFT Okay, Mike, we copy. 

CAPCOM And Bob, we've got some switches on panel Rl, when 

you get a chance. We'd like to turn off crvo set 3 heaters, 
that's 02 tank 3 heater A to off, and H2 tank 3 heaters A and B 
to off. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, I got it, H2 tank 3 heaters H2 both of them 

to off, and (garble) get on there for a second. And 02 tank 3 
heaters A and B, 02 are both off. 

CAPCOM That's affirmative, all the heaters on tank 3 

should be off now, tank 3 is near depletion and we'd like the 
heaters off. We'd also, we'll pass up the supply water dump 
right now. We'd like to dump tank bravo to 10 percent. And this 
should preclude us doing a dump tomorrow morning before entry. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, bravo to 10. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston, we'd like to get a how goes 

it on the stowage, if you get a chance. 

SPACECRAFT Mike, I think we're pretty well under control, we 

got most of the stuff stowed, it's not very neat and very pretty, 
but we still got a good amount more to go. It's unbelievable how 
much stuff we had left down here from the, that confusion on the 
EVA and the starting and stopping on the stowing of that thing. 

CAPCOM I can believe that, Bob. T,et me clarify the water 

dump, we'd like you to go ahead and dump it to 10 percent, but do 
it at 8 o'clock, right on time, at 8 hours. 

SPACECRAFT I understand. Mike on the stowage, if we have 

time in the morning, we intend to try to get Joe out of here, 
airlock . 

CAPCOM Roger, we understand. 

SPACECRAFT It's easy for you to understand. 

SPACECRAFT I think he's still hoping for an EVA.

minutes, mission elapsed time. Columbia has just passed out of 
range of the Hawaii station. There was a scheduled private 
medical conference with the crew and the flight surgeon on that 
pass. I think that occurred early in the pass, and we'll check 
on that for you shortly. Crew sounds in good spirits as they 
prepare their equipment, stowing everything for entry and a 
little good natured kidding about possibly stowing Joe Allen in 
the airlock. And crew should be settling in for a meal fairly 
shortly if they're getting caught up on their cabin stowage. 4

SPACECRAFT And Mike, you might make a note, it looks like the 

PLTs WCCU number bravo, that's bravo has gone south onus. It 
was r-ally qetting scratchy and bad, and we changed out the 
batteries! I haven't done any more on that, it probably ought to 
be just looked at when you get back. 

CAPCOM Okay, we copy Bob, the wireless unit bravo, is 

down, and you did change the batteries on it. 

SPACECRAFT Yeah, and I'm on the evening and tomorrow morning. 

CAPCOM Okay, you cut out there, what are you on right 

now , Bob? 

SPACECRAFT I'm on the hardline HIU sitting in the PLTs seat, 

and I'll just kind of use the hardline all the rest evening until 
bedt ime . 

CAPCOM Understand. 

SPACECRAFT And thanks for the other info Mike, I was afraid 

I, perhaps missed it. And although now I do remember, it s not 
to be turned off. 

CAPCOM Roger, Joe. 

CAPCOM And Columbia, Houston with 45 seconds to qo here 

at Santiago, and if you guys concur, we'd like to go ahead and 
plan to do the tag up here at Indian Ocean coming up at 7 + JL, 
get that out of the way and leave you alone tonight.

SPACECRAFT Okay, why don't you go ahead. 

CAPCOM Roger, the data from the LVLH test we did this 

morning looks real good. You'll be happy to know that the SBS 
has been despun and the reflector antenna was raised, they 
started lowering the solar arrays this time. We got some good 
engineering data about the, from Bill on his test there with the 
EMU fan and reg problems this morning. That was a good exercise 
for us. The event timer, mission timer problems you saw in the 
aft deck there, we think is probably a transformer problem right 
now. And of course we have the pilots wireless fail, wireless 
bravo is down, are the anomalies we've had toda . As far as 
tomorrow, we plan to do a nominal deorbit and landing. The 
deorbit TIG right now is 5 days, I hour, and 17 minutes. Landing 
about 5 days, 2 hours, and 15 minutes, on Edwards 2 2. It'll be 
about sunrise plus 7 minutes. Weather is good at all the CONAS 
sites, for tomorrow and the next day. You can expect the weather 
at Edwards tomorrow to be about 16 thousand scattered and 25 
thousand broken, was 7 miles plus visibility. Winds about 240 at 
8 knots, pretty much down the runway, and the temperature is 
about 40 degrees, so wear your long underwear. The sleep 
configuration, we've got, we'd like to get an elevon position 
report from you next time you're in daylight and we're talking to 
you if we could. We've got a list of caution/warning channels 
we'd like to change the limits on, if you ' /e got a chance to 
copy . 

SPACECRAFT Go ahead. 

CAPCOM Okay, these are the ones we changed for the EVA, 

and we'd like to reset them now, if you've got a pencil and 
paper. Again this is on panel R13, caution/warning channels. 
We'd like channels 14 and 54 to go ahead and enable those 
channels and verify that the upper limit is 4.9 volts, on channel 
4, we'd like to reset t;.e upper limit to 3.8 volts, on channel 
24, we'd like to verify channel's 24 and 64, we'd like to verify 
the upper limit at 4.9 volts, and channels 34 and 44, we'd like 
to reset the upper limit to 3.6 volts, over. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, count I, 4 and 5 for enable, and (garble) 0 
4.9 0 volt, channel 4, 3.80 volts, channel 24, channel 64, 4.9 
volts and make sure they're enabled, channel 34 and 44, 3.6 
volts, over. 

CAPCOM Roger, that's a good read back. State vector, 

good message, will be coming up tonight if we don't give you a 
good, a go before that. The only other thing we have right now 
is if you want to leave Joe in the airlock, your exchange crew 
has agreed to let him out after landing tomorrow, and we're 
taking names for burrito run right now, if you guys want one. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t206j GMT 319:19:51 11/15/82 PAGE 2

SPACECRAFT Okay. See you then. 

PA0 Mission Control, Houston. 4 days, 7 hours, 39 

minutes mission elapsed time. Just passing out of range of the 
tracking station at Indian Ocean, orbit number 70. The ground 
controllers here at Mission Control passing up information to the 
crew to help them get the spacecraft ready for the night, setting 
new limits on the caution and warning system which activates 
audible alarms to the crew should any temperatures and that sort 
of thing get out of limits. Generally, they set those at a 
fairly wide margin during the evening, still within what they 
feel will tell them what they need to know but to avoid waking 
the crew unnecessarily. We're about an hour and 50 minutes away 
from the scheduled crew sleep period and Commander Vance Brand 
commented that the crew is pretty well squared away for the 
evening and they will be ready to get up and charge in the 
morning as they get ready for entry. We're about 20 minutes away 
from the next opportunity to communicate with the crew aboard 
Columbia. That'll be a very low elevation pass over ^ust the 
edge of the Guam tracking station and then we'll ]ust barely clip 
the edge of the range for the Hawaii station before making a 
fairly good pass across Santiago and Ascension. That'll be about 
the last opportunity to, one of the last opportunities to speak 
to the crew before bedtime. At 4 days, 7 hours, 40 minutes

CAPCOM Hello Columbia, we're with you for about 11 

minutes through Mila and Bermuda. 

SPACECRAFT Roger Jon. And the team of Overmyer and Lenoir 

just did an IFM this morning, we f i na 1 ly had our ^tor dispenser 
fail, it's been getting a little uncertain the last day or so and 
it failed this morning both in the powered mode anci in the hypao, 
mode, so the bypass was bypassed, yes and we're using, the head 
on the utility water hose to fill water bags and stuff. 

CAPCOM Okay we copy that and in relationship to water, 

you can tell Bob that there's no H20 dump this morning. 

SPACECRAFT No H20 dump this morning. And Bob or Bill might 

fill you in more on this IFM thing. 

Yes Jon, there's a hose that's intended to use, 



STS-5 MR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t2lM GMT 320:05:58 11/16/82 PAGE 2 

just as we're using it, the problem is that it's got a nipple on 
it that's too long and it wouldn't fit off the side of the water 
dispenser package. So we had to remove the water dispenser 
package to get it on and then loosely reinsert it. K s on tight 
now. 

CAPCOM Okay, we copy that and we'll look it over for you. 

SPACFCRAFT Okay Jon, what we're doing is coming out of the 
side 'port which was connected to the 12-foot water hose, and that 
hose had a 90 degree elbow on it because it appears to get the 
spacecraft wall but the spare hoses in the IFM kit cud not have 
the 90, so we had to loosen the water dispenser to be able to gt-t 
the, keep the (garble) between the wall and the hose. 

CAPCOM Okay we copy all that, but as of right now 

everything is operational, you can get water? 

SPACECRAFT We're, it's operational, we can get all the water 

we want now Jon. 

CAPCOM Okay that sounds good. 

SPACECRAFT Houston, Columbia, are you done with the 

teleprinter so I can break that apart for this COMM 
reconfiguration? 

CAPCOM No, we'd like for you to hold off on that awhile, 

we may have one more message to send up a little later.

finished.

to warm them up or something?

SPACECRAFT Okay. 

CAPCOM Yes Vance. We wanted to use the normals to stop 

the PTC a little quicker and save a little gas.

PAO This is Shuttle Control at 4 days 19 hours 45 

minutes mission elapsed time. Columbia's about 25 seconds away 

' q on though the Merritt Island station Now on 

orbit nJmber 78. Here in the Control Center the entry team... 

CAPCOM with you through Mila for 7 minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Roger Houston, loud and clear. 

PAO Entry team hit it.. 

CAPCOM Go ahead Columbia. 

SPACECRAFT Are we going to be getting PADS later this 

morning? I know we never par t icular ly end it that way, but it 
would be nice if we could. 

CAPCOM Yes Vance, we can get them to you in about an hour 

probably at Yarragadee on the next pass. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, super. 

PA0 This is Shuttle Control. The handover to the entry 

team lead by Flight Director Tom Holloway is complete now. 
CAPCOM's are Bob Stewart and Roy Bridges. 

SPACECRAFT Columbia here Houston, Columbia 

CAPCOM Go ahead Columbia. 

SPACECRAFT Right that's Houston/Columbia or Columbia/Houston 
whichever the case may be. Bob we feel the report wasn't that we 
showed up yesterday and our excitement on all a " V^^orwar'd " 
port payload bay lights were not working yesterday, the Edward 
pay load bay lights were not working, the payload bay lights were 
not working, they would not come on and we tried them again right 
now and t^' re Sot coming on, so it looks like you have to add 
those (garble) something's wrong with them. 

CAPCOM Okay Bob wo copy, forward payload bay door lights, 

payload bay lights. 

SPACECRAFT Yes that's affirm. 

CAPCOM Bob, for clarification, are you talking about the 

port starboard lights or the bulkhead lights? 

SPACECRAFT Port starboard, not the bulkhead. 
CAPCOM Okay. 

SPACECRAFT Bob we just tried the bulkhead, it is working it is 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t220j GMT 320:08:07 11/16/82 PAGE 1 

SPACECRAFT ...we just tried the bulkhead. It is working ar, 

the port starboard forward. 

CAPCOM Okay, we've got it. And, Bob, I've got your CRT 

timer update if you want to copy it now or I can give it to you 
later as you desire. 

SPACECRAFT We're ready to copy.

SPACECRAFT Houston, Columbia, are you there? 

CAPCOM Roger, we're still with you. 

SPACECRAFT Just thought I'd pass word. We're sitting here 

reviewing the deorbit prep and noticing some of the humor. These 

are seme good laughs. 

CAPCOM Anything to keep the troups entertained. We know 

you're probably pretty bored up there this morning. 

SPACECRAFT Well it isn't too bad. You sent me up here a 

little while ago to see if I could see the equator, and I'm 
trying to make it through it's dark out here. 

CAPCOM With that 28 and 1/2 degree inclination the 

equator's painted on the water most of the way around, kind of 
washes out occasionally. 

SPACECRAFT I keep trying to look for that redline. All my 

maps have redline hut it wasn't there. Okay, and nob, was EECOM 
status out of the fuel cell purge? 

CAPCOM Standby Robert, we're 40 seconds to LOS. I'll get 

back to you. Bob, EECOM says the last fuel cell purge looked 
superb. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, good, we'll check that one off.

CAPCOM Your 5-by. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Roy, good news and bad news, good news is the 
doors closed absolutely nominally, as far as doors went and they 
are closed and sputting up. (garble) just to the point where I 
stopped it's motion to make it, make the check, the AC overvolt 
came on and the AC's volt liqht came on and AC volt, AC 1, phase 
bravo dropped off as showing less then 50 volts, and zero amps. 

1 got in deorbit OPS pocket checklist, I stopped at step 2 
thinking you might want to watch me bring that back on the line, 
over . 

CAPCOM Roger and stand by, we'll take a look at it. 

Columbia, Houston, we'll have to wait till Hawaii to get data, 
but we would like for you to wait and let us watch it. 

SPACECRAFT It's vour call, now I haven't hit the bus loss 
problem yet, do we lose any important data between now and then 
that you might want on or any switching that you wanted done? 

CAPCOM Copy your question and we'll get an answer for you 

in a couple of minutes. 

SPACECRAFT Roy according to my book we don't lose a whole lot 
that we can't live without until we get you to Hawaii. 

CAPCOM Roger. 

SPACECRAFT And to clarify your position I have stopped at step 

2 of page 5-3 of the orbit pocket checklist, and waiting to reset 
that phase. 

CAPCOM Roger, copy.

\ describe that for us again Bob which messages came first? 

SPACECRAFT Okay, well the AC volt message came first, and the 
AC overload message came second up on the false. They would 
then, at (garble) time, so they're essentially one right on top 
of the other. The first light we saw was the AC overvolt, 
because of our CRT configuration Bill was in the front seat 
handling the CRT while I was in the back seat handling the door 
switch and consequently he called overvolt and, overload and volt 
simultaneously to me. 

CAPCOM Roger copy. 

SPACECRAFT And I got one for IMU, we're already been recording 
the position where the extended guide roll trajectory with first 
hit, it looked like every single one of them, as best I could 
tell with my binoculars were qoing to hit right slightly above 
point alpha, right just about nominal, right about point alpha. 

CAPCOM Okay we copy. Columbia, Houston, could you send 

| somebody real quickly to MA73C and check the circuit breaker?

the ASC PAM heater switch. 

SPACECRAFT Go ahead, we have a man at the panel. 

CAPCOM Okay, the ground telemetry shows that both the 

AN IK and the SBS ASC PAM heater relays are in the auto position 
and we'd like to request that you confirm that the switches on 
panel Lll are off with a talkback barberpole and using the 
procedure on your cue card.

SPACECRAFT That's in work. It's done. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, .Toe, I'd like to confirm how 

you did that procedure. I may have mislead you a little bit. 

SPACECRAFT Roy, wo turned the I. SOI, PCM power on so we could 

nee the talkbaek. Wo flipped the switch off, verified and went 
harberpolo. And then took the TSOL PCM power off. 

CAPCOM Okay, that's exactly what we wanted you to do, 

thank you. Columbia, Houston, Vance, I'd like to discuss the 
deorbit burn a little nit and the weather if you have a minute. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, go ahead. 

CAPCOM Okay, first of all, you don't need to look for any 

cue cards today. There are no changes to the deorbit burn flight 
rules. And secondly, the weather at Edwards is a little loss 
than we would like for your coming home. You may have noticed in 
your forecast we gave vou earl ier that we have some broken 
clouds. Weather reports that there is a thin clouddeck running 
from flight level 3 3 0 tops down to 17.5 MSI, . It's a fairly 
thin deck, of course, it's pretty dark out there still, but they 
can see lights through it right now. We would expect that deck 
of clouds to remain with us for the rest of the morning, over. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, understand the bases are about 17.5. 

CAPCOM That's affirmative. And the forecast is 

running . . .

SPACECRAFT Okay, understand the bases are abou •. 1, r > 

CAPCOM That's affirmative and the forecast is running 

pretty close to this, they would expect 2 layers there, one 
starting about the altitude. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, doesn't sound ideal, but doesn't sound too 

bad. 

CAPCOM Roqer and it looks like the winds at 40,000 and 

with the last ballon are runninq around 100 knots instead of the 
130 that we sent you on the PAD, however, the forecast holds, we 
would anticipate winds varying anywhere from 100 to 130 knots 
near the hat. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, well we'll be alert on the hat. T think we 

could fly needles, but we would be alert to pull the nose up a 
little bit, and bring the boards in if required? 

CAPCOM Okay, well we, we see no need for manual 

intervention, flying the higher winds in the SMS they saw MAX 
roll angles of about 55 degrees, about 1.75 g's. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, sounds like it's okay. 

CAPCOM Roger, it sounds real good Vance and of course, 

the way things stand right now, if you had any doubts at all you 
could use full auto control all the way around the hat, it would 
be your call. 

SPACECRAFT Understand, thank you. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston. You have a GO for OPS 3 and 

Vance I have one other comment concerning the landing area. 

SPACECRAFT GO for OPS 3 transition and go ahead. 

CAPCOM Roger, to aid the STA pilots this morning, 

primarily they have the night lighting rigs set up on runway 
22. There's one unit on each side of the runway at the 
threshold, about 250 feet from the center line, pointing down the 
runway to illuminate the touchdown area, you may not notice it 
during your landing since you'll be landing after sunrise, 
however you iray see it as you're coming over the field onto the 
hat. 

SPACECRAFT Okay good, and understand the main reason for it 

is to illuminate the touchdown zone. 



CAPCOM 



That's affirmative. And it's primarily for the

cloud deck that's low and it's very thin. 

CAPCOM Okay, we copy, so everything is still looking 

good . 

NASA 946 We're now at about 32,000. We are looking at 250 

at 93 knots so the winds seems to be picking up here, may be that 
Jets swinging up. 

rKvrnw Roaer, 946 Houston, we're going to have to drop

CAPCOM I'm 17 your time. 

SPACECRAFT 4 6 out. 

CAPCOM Roger. 

pA0 This is Shuttle Control at 5 days 51 minutes 

mission elapsed time, standing by for acquistion through 
Ascension. This is the station where the GO NO/GO decision on 
the deorbit burn will be made. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, with you at Ascension for 6 

minutes, configure AOS. 

SPACECRAFT Okay Houston. We're AOS are we clear the closed 

vent doors. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, GO for vent door closing. 

SPACECRAFT Columbia's (garble) at you. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, have a update on the weather, 

if you're ready to copy? 

SPACECRAFT Go ahead. 

CAPCOM Roger, STA reports weather picture to be very 

good, you do have some layered of cloud, with bases as low as 
13,000 MSL, tops as high as 310, it's moving around a little bit 
but real good news is that they're all very thin and you can see 
through from the top all the way down, see the lakebed through 
them. They report some slight to moderate turbulance starting at 
about 370 and tapering off around 260. 

SPACECRAFT Okay, thank you. And Vance, in answer to your 

question, we would like to have the right RCS helium R to open 
per checklist. 

SPACECRAFT Tt's open, open and left open. 

CAPCOM Roger. Columbia, Houston, we see all vents 

closed, and for your information, hydrylic thermal conditioning 
will not be required for the entry. 

PA0 This is Shuttle Control. The CAPCOM for entry and 

landing is astronaut Roy Bridges. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, on the RCS configuration, I'd 

like for you to check left and riqht RCS, tank ISOs, and cross 
the valves to TPC, the valves are in the current position. 



SPACECRAFT They're there. 



STS-5 AIR/GROUND TRANSCRIPT t236j GMT 320:13:09 11/16/82 PAGE 2 

CAPCOM Roger. Columbia, Houston, the ascent entry team 

is ready for the entry, you have a GO for deorbit burn. 

SPACECRAFT Roger, Roy. GO for the burn. 

CAPCOM Columbia, Houston, we're 40 seconds LOS at 

Ascension, see you at Botswana at 03, configure LOS. 

PAO This is Shuttle Control. Ascension has loss of 

signal. Columbia given a GO for deorbi k , next acquisition 
through Botswana, and just unde<: 3 minutes. It'll be about a 7 
and a half minute pass and then the deorbit burn will take place 
in 17 minutes out over the Indian Ocean, we will not be in 
contact with Columbia at that time, we'll have to wait until the 
spacecraft reaches acquistion through Guam to find out how that 
burn goes. 

CAPCOM NASA 946, Houston. 

PAO CAPCOM Roy Bridges putting in another call to John 

Young in NASA 946 the Shuttle training aircraft Air 1. 

CAPCOM Okay, we just gave them a GO for the burn at 

Ascension and we got about 2 minutes before we hit Botswana. Do 
you have any further update? 

NASA 946 Houston, 916 go ahead. 

CAPCOM Roger 946, we gave them a GO for the burn at 

Ascension, we've got about a minute here before we hit Botswana 
for an update, do you have anything? 

NASA 946 No, except this low layer seems to be in and out, 

sometimes you're in it, sometimes you're out of it. You break 
out at about 18,000 right now. 

CAPCOM Roger, understand, Jon, I told them it was 

layered, patchy but all very thin. And we did check regarding 
the Saint Elmo fire that you saw earlier today and in the opinion 
of the folks here, that's no problem. 

NASA 946 46 Roger, thank you. 

CAPCOM Okay, I'll talk to you after Botswana and that'll 

be about 5 29 your time.

reoorts and I'm happy it turned out good, we've got them over 
SSSaU now? we're processing a little bit of C-band data and at 
the last LOS over Guam they were looking real good. 

NASA 946 Roger, and there's places where you can see some 

Soles in the dolts, but for the most part I think they are going 
to have to fly through that layer on instruments. 

CAPCOM Copy. You can still see through it but, you're 

afraid they won't be able to, right? 

NASA 946 That's affirm, there's not very much there to see.
