112:22:06 McCandless: Oh, we don't mind a bit! I was considerably west of where we were intending to land, so it wasn't one of the those craters that we'd been looking for in the approach path. 111:56:08 Armstrong: (Garbled) read? 114:05:50 McCandless: And we're going to power down the voice subcarrier part of our uplink to you in order that we don't disturb you while we're talking to Tranquility Base. At 69 hours, 19 minutes Ground Elapsed Time; this is Apollo Control. The Service Module contained oxygen, water, and electric power for the command module. ], [Aldrin - (Chuckling) "We didn't seem to talk about it very much, did we? From this point, McCandless takes turns with backup LMP Fred Haise in reading up the news. When the Apollo 11 spacecraft lifted off on July 16, 1969, for the Moon, it signaled a climactic instance in human history. There is no further discussion of the sleep attitude after Mike completes the P52 at 112:53:16.]. Harald Kucharek calls attention to a 2009 briefing by Michael Interbartolo (NASA JSC), indicating that the docking targets were also radioluminiscent. Between the tanks and the injector, just about everything was duplicated; plumbing, valves, control systems, giving the crew redundant paths for engine ignition. "], [Aldrin - "Yeah, if there's anything that it can grab a hold of, the stuff seems to stay there."]. Be ready to go back into Prep for Depress. Theta Eridani) and star 42 (Peacock, Alpha Pavonis). A small amount of torquing was required to get the platform exactly aligned, though these do not represent any degree of drift. "], [At at 123:55:23, about a half hour before LM liftoff, Ron Evans tells Mike that the LM is "just west of West Crater, Juliett 0.5, 7.7. Omni C-Charlie. The Apollo 11 Telemetry Data Recordings: A Final Report (0.6 Mb PDF) TV and Communications Documentation Processing and Duplication of Apollo 11 Film, 25 … "], [Armstrong - "I don't think there's anything sinister. "], [Aldrin, from the 1969 Technical Debrief - "The (replacement LiOH) canister container behind the ascent engine removed very easily, and we were able to jettison it without any problems. Weren't they crushable? And at 63 hours, 30 minutes Ground Elapsed Time; this is Apollo Control. "], [Aldrin, from the 1969 Technical Debrief - "Well, you were back out of the mainstream of the light, except for the AOT. This means that it gets noisy again, and all you hear is a glycol pump and stuff like that. Thomas used a NASA/GSFC/Arizona State University mosaic showing the Moon's north pole. These may have been ejected from West Crater. The Comm for sleep will be the normal lunar Comm configuration. We fell victim to a time constant. Yuri Krasilnikov has created an animated GIF ( 0.3 Mb or 2.7 Mb ) from 5477 and photo AS11-37-5454, which Buzz took at about 2132 UTC/GMT on the 20th, not long after the landing. 114:25:37 McCandless: Tranquility, this is Houston. (Pause) Stand by. I think we would have been fully capable of carrying out a lift-off and rendezvous (right after the EVA, had one been required). ], [Returning to the 1991 Apollo 11 mission review. The fact that Neil sees the corona coming out along the ecliptic suggests that this is the zodiacal light. Velocity; 5,981 feet per second [1,823 m/s]. It turned out to be that the Earth was shining through the AOT (Alignment Optical Telescope) right into my eye. Readback. (Pause) That's reading zero with the bag on. AS11-42-6195 - Solar corona appearing from behind the Moon. 114:36:40 Armstrong: We got two core tubes and the solar wind and about half of a big sample bag full of assorted rocks which I picked up hurriedly from around the area. [Either Bruce has misspoken or has misunderstood Mike's "And that'll be the sleep attitude." On your next depressurization, it's acceptable to use the overhead hatch dump valve in addition to or instead of the forward hatch dump valve to speed up the depressurization of the cabin. "], [Small trenches dug by later crews would retain virtually vertical walls. I worked real hard at a high workload right there near the conclusion (of the EVA) when I was pulling the rock boxes up. B, off. I'm not sure how they're planning to do this. "], [I then told them about Jack Schmitt's apparent allergic reaction to lunar dust after the first Apollo 17 EVA - but not after the later ones. If for some reason Apollo 11 cannot perform the burn, we will acquire the spacecraft at 76 hours, 5 minutes, 30 seconds. Do you read? Have you got the new coordinates for me? Looks like they're going to turn over and go back to sleep. Over. therefore thrust would also be higher because it depended on combustion pressure. 112:48:40 Collins: Roger. 'Moist' was about the best I could grab hold of. ], [As shown on page 16 in the HSK station log, the GDS-to-HSK uplink handover was done at 05:42 GMT/UTC (21 July 1969), which corresponds to a Ground Elapsed Time (GET) of 112:10. Over. Lunar features appear to be visible illuminated by Earth's light, particularly Mare Imbrium and the ray systems of Copernicus and Kepler. 114:39:48 Garriott: Roger, Tranquility. This is Apollo Control at 73 hours, 25 minutes. During the technical debriefing, Neil said, "The flagstaff was pushed into the ground at a slight angle such that the c.g. One got pushed in and one got broken off. Apollo 11's distance from the Moon now 11,232 nautical miles [20,802 km]. I figured we'd just take what we got; and we paid for that later, because we had a lot of operations in the shadow during the EVA that would have been easier had we had better lighting. The ignition time for that burn; 75 hours, 49 minutes, 49 seconds. Reading you loud and clear on Omni Charlie. Readback. I'll have to say that I think I had the better sleeping place. ], [Armstrong, from the 1969 Technical Debrief - "A couple of comments with respect to going to sleep in the LM. 111:59:55 Aldrin: Roger. the animation shows, among other things, the change in shadow length. We've got new information. 112:20:42 McCandless: Tranquility Base, this is Houston. 114:18:47 Armstrong: (Joking) You can't get away with anything anymore, can you? Over. Panel 16, row 2, Stab control ATCA, that is A-T-C-A, and it should be open at this time. The only extra jettison was done sometime between the end of the final EVA and the launch. Who named it West Crater? Over. It still got colder and colder. We had the window shades up (that is, covering the windows) and light came through those window shades like crazy. "], [Collins, from the 1969 Technical Debrief - "Apollo 12 is planning to take their suits off. Go ahead. [The current time is about 0553 on 21 July 1969 (UTC/GMT). that once the crew were in a cold condition, there was not enough Over. I don't believe so. Can you give us some idea of how you're progressing on the PLSS doffing and preparation for Depress? Mine happened to be training and simulation. "], [In the published version of the Technical Debriefing, Neil is quoted as saying "Of course, the time period that we took while we were waiting for the canister (replacement) before starting the repressurization was comparably long." We've successfully re-acquired high-gain antenna. We underestimated how much light was coming in through the windows. Apollo 11 is now 8,188 nautical miles from the Moon, approaching at a velocity of 4,324 feet per second. This module was jettisoned just before reentry into the Earth's atmosphere. If you’re like me, and are either a spaceflight historian or enthusiast or both, you probably think you’ve seen every piece of footage there is of NASA’s legendary Apollo 11 Moon landing. Apollo 11's distance from the Moon is now 7,331 nautical miles [13,577 km]. That is zero two. The altitude is minus 1.44 nautical miles. That's affirmative. Over. 112:56:28 Aldrin: Houston, Tranquility. The planned sleep period has another hour-and-a-half to go but, as mentioned earlier, will likely run another couple of hours in as much as Midcourse Correction burn number 4 will not be made and the crew will not have to spend the time preparing to do the burn, to align the platform and do all the chores necessary for doing a maneuver of this sort. Stand by please. "], [The Apollo 12 crew had an even worse problem with dust and, for the remaining missions, the solutions that seemed to help were (1) dusting each other off as thoroughly as possible with a house-paint-sized brush before going up the ladder; (2) stomping their feet on the ladder to get more dust off the boots and lower legs; and (3) putting the suit legs into spare jettison bags between the EVAs. A generally undesirable landing area for the first one. But not always. And I guess you can plan on turning in shortly after AOS on this next pass. Rather than using pumps to feed the propellants into the combustion chamber, engineers decided to have the pressure in the tanks be sufficient to overcome the pressure of combustion. So, if there was a meeting on simulators or simulator requirements or something, and the person who was assigned to be simulators would be the obvious guy to go track that and it wouldn't take some master scheduler to be figuring out where people should be going all the time. Spacecraft now 29,716 nautical miles [55,034 km] out from the Moon. ], [Aldrin, from the 1969 Technical Debrief - "This period was prolonged a bit to try to make as much use of the film remaining. Understand the description there. Cliff Charlesworth and the Green Team of flight controllers has just relieved Glynn Lunney's Black Team. (Long Pause). the suit circuit, blankets will be provided and the crew will sleep in Thank you, and I hope this will be a final good night. I just don't see the real need for taking the helmets off. Get some rest there and have at it tomorrow. ], [Armstrong - "Yeah, I suspended them. Thank you. 5534, unfortunately all dominated by the bright window behind Buzz. 114:32:28 Aldrin: Roger. there's a panel that goes out so that either crew member can only see forward and out his side, but not to the other side. Over. Disable Charlie and Delta. Apollo 11 Highlights . Thomas Schwagmeier has compared 5467 with a frame from Buzz’s post-hot-fire DAC sequence, showing roughly a 90 degree change in orientation. After the ascent stage returns from the Moon and before it is jettisoned, that liner full of canisters will be placed in its cabin to be discarded with it. LMP reads 09018. 114:00:13 Armstrong: I don't blame you a bit. The Service Module also housed the service propulsion system—the rocket engine that put the spacecraft into lunar orbit and later boosted it back toward Earth. 114:00:34 Armstrong: Yes. Next topic here relates to the rays which emanate from the DPS (Descent Propulsion System) engine burning area. ], [Armstrong - "You can see from this picture (meaning figure 5-8), it does look like it's a somewhat more sharp-edged crater than this one, which is more weathered. Mission Control have included the angles to which the High Gain Antenna ought to be pointed to give a good radio link with Earth. If you need us, just give us a call, and we can respond with a time lag of about a minute to a minute and a half in getting reconfigured. Clock counting down to lunar landing showing 35 hours, 17 minutes. Thanks a lot. Over. It wasn't a rapid change in resistive force. "], [Other crews described the smell as being similar to expended gunpowder. With the automatic radar, lift-off and rendezvous are fairly leisurely exercises. 113:17:52 Armstrong: Roger. ], [The PLSS jettison comes at about 114:14.
