Apo11o ll

Garbled transmissions.

Aldrin: It really looks nice, doesn't it?

Collins: If it isn't any good, we'll need another one anyway, huh?

Aldrin: Houston, Eagle. (Long Pause) Over. Suit Fan Number 1 circuit breaker, Open. Over.

Collins: If it isn't any good, we'll need another one anyway, huh? [Pause.]

Collins: You don't have a launch checklist. Okay, we're - we're in DAP control.

Armstrong: Ready for EDS Power, On, you think?

Armstrong: Mine says - 11012.

Collins: 3.45, something like that...

Aldrin: Roger. Do we have to do anything - to the O2 to pressurize the LM?

Armstrong: It flies good, though.

Aldrin: Okay.

Collins: I think I can get it now -...

Collins: We made three cups of coffee today.

Collins: Good deal. Okay.

Aldrin: Roger. Generally, centrally located with respect to a line drawn perpendicular to the terminator that goes through the center. It's not bad enough, not finding the right landing spot, when you haven't even got the right planet!

Armstrong: Good night, Charlie.

McCandless: Go ahead, 11. Did you copy my notes on SPS chamber pressure? You are Go at 5 minutes. Over. [No answer.] [Pause.]

McCandless: Okay. Plus 3.3 on the EMS. Over.

Aldrin: Collins has got one, but I'm not sure I buy it. It's like being outside, except more comfortable. Over.

Aldrin: No. It looks like we're venting the oxidizer now.

Collins: Beautiful. We'll do it. Do something with it, anyway.

Duke: I'd like to see that sight. Thank you much.

Armstrong: Okay.

Aldrin: Alright.

Armstrong: I think we'll make it (laughter).

Collins: Okay. I'll try it.

McCandless: Roger. After you've completed P52, we'd like to uplink you a new state vector so we can start out clean on this P23. We could do that. A little more information based on our analysis of your last SPS burn: it looks like you got a good solid burn there. )

Collins: I don't either, [garble]. My guess would be that it's something to do with this connection in the UCD or something like that. ] I mean, were the rocks - I mean, how did you - did you go around and - just pick up rocks, put them in - in... Okay.

Armstrong: I believe minus - but they were expecting it. Is that right, I hope?

Aldrin: Okay. I got it.

Aldrin: Okay. [Garble] it should have been - 124 01. Yes, and it looks like the Cape has been having a little bit of rain, too.

Aldrin: No more urine dumps on the way to the Moon.

McCandless: Okay. And I see you're in P00. Out.

Aldrin: No, that's mine. And the purge check's complete, and I'm working my way down to ECS.

Duke: Stand by. Stand by one.

PAO: We're now some 25 minutes into our television pass.

Armstrong: Okay.

Collins: Yeah. I, I'll show what it looks like inside of the cabin. [Long pause.]

Duke: Rog. Over. Over. Stand by. [Long pause.]

Collins: That's great, fantastic! You want to see the monitor?

Armstrong: Okay. Charging Batt A, then on to... Okay.

Collins: Okay.

Armstrong: Okay.

McCandless: Roger, 11.

Aldrin: I can read the letters on the hatch cover. Yeah (Pause)

Duke: Roger. [Long pause.] Mike, on that canister, we had you due to change one at 133 before TEI, and it's on page 399. And we see right now the utility light or either the floodlight up there.

Duke: Apollo 11, Houston. We're about to get the satellite up. Over. We couldn't see that LGC self test. Over. [Pause.] Over. [Pause.] We copy. That's right, sir.

Armstrong: It may be up in the - in the Command Module, huh? Somebody's upside down.

Aldrin: Yes. [Long pause.] Okay.

Aldrin: You don't need to take - you're not taking your scissors over there? Over. [Pause.] One, Zero. I already fired it.

Evans: Roger. EECOM is anxiously awaiting his big moment here for the logic sequence check whenever you're ready.

Evans: Okay. Roger. [No answer.] You want to tweak the O2 flow up just a bit there?

PAO: This is Apollo Control at 2 hours, 16 minutes. Neil Armstrong reported back when he received the good wishes: "Thank you very much. Based on the present trajectory, Apollo 11 will enter the lunar sphere of influence at an elapsed time of 61 hours, 39 minutes, 58 seconds. At 83 hours, 45 minutes; this is Apollo Control, Houston. Mike Collins reported that it would - we would go ahead with the regularly scheduled one when they are in the LM. Standing by now for acquisition.

Collins: Okay, everything's going well. Here we go.

Collins: Okay.

Evans: Apollo 11, Houston.

Evans: Roger, Mike. Your Command Module pressurization looks mighty fine to us.

Collins: Okay. Dark - battleship gray, isn't it?

Armstrong: Just trying the ergometer. Did you try the other line?

Collins: Houston, how do you read Columbia on the High Gain now?

Aldrin: ...No, no, no.

Evans: Rog.

Aldrin: Okay.

Collins: ...we got room for it up there.

Aldrin: Okay.

Collins: ...57, plus...

McCandless: And for our information, we've been watching a pCO2 again.

Aldrin: Att Deadband, Minimum.

Collins: [Garble]. Now I want to go to P00, and I'm going to take your three angles and do a Verb 49 maneuver to your substellar point. No, I mean any - any other weights or anything?

Duke: Roger, Tranquility. The systems were all good. You're about one-by. ] We can even see the barber pole on the talkbacks.

PAO: This is Apollo Control, at 71 hours into the mission. Altitude is 100 miles, downrange is 883 miles. That was Neil Armstrong in the radio check.

McCandless: Tranquility Base, this is Houston, Roger.

Armstrong: Yes, plenty of black and white film.

Aldrin: There's 52.

Collins: Go ahead.

Aldrin: Roger. (Long Pause) (Garbled under Bruce).

Collins: Sure looks like it.

Aldrin: Yeah, I see one fairly large and isolated one. [Garble] Off, [garble] Off...

Armstrong: Okay.

Armstrong: Houston, Apollo 11. Good.

Collins: Rog.

Collins: You got to do what, Neil? Yeah, open it back to the one o'clock position.

Duke: Roger.

Collins: Okay. Handkerchief or something...

Duke: Rog.

Duke: Okay. I'm looking at the right side of the screen this time.

Aldrin: You say you had about 3-point-something volts up there?

Armstrong: Hey, Mike, you transmitting on B?

Aldrin: Now, where are those things? (Pause) There you go. Balance couple, On.

SC: (Yawn) 43 [garble].

Collins: No, no, this is - used for the intervalometer? Do you have any update for the roll, pitch and yaw angles on the top of page 37 in the flight plan, or are they still good?

Armstrong: Okay.

PAO: This is Apollo Control, Houston; 84 hours, 56 minutes now into the flight, Apollo 11.

McCandless: Go ahead, Apollo 11. We concur, and we certainly wish we could see it first hand, also. Seriously, that comment was just aimed at your musical selection.

Collins: Our flow is stabilized now at 0.6.

Collins: I'll be damned.

Duke: We can see the LM umbilical connection quite well there, Buzz.

Armstrong: 15. (Long Pause)

Collins: Okay. Well, in the meantime, I'm going to pitch down toward 315.
