Apo11o ll

Garbled transmissions.

Armstrong: Minus 30 pitch...

Aldrin: We got a beautiful view of the side of the Command Module out of the AOT looking in the left rear detent.

Collins: Okay, Houston.

McCandless: Columbia, this is Houston. I guess that takes care of the news for today, Mike.

McCandless: Roger. Over.

Aldrin: ...Diverter Valve to Egress.

Evans: Roger. ]

Evans: Eagle, Houston. The computer is yours now. On page E6-1, your RRT is 07:20, your 50k is 08:16; 40k is 08:30; your 24k is 09:02; and your 10k is 09:51. Call P22 possible program alarm 526, range greater than 400 nautical miles, and then use the P22 as described on PGNS-20. That is correct.

Aldrin: Roger.

Armstrong: Not sure of that. Mark it.

Duke: Roger. Sounds like you've already done that, so I guess whatever you can come up with, just let us know. Over. [Pause.]

Collins: 0.15, now, Neil says, Charlie.

Armstrong: Duke Island, Duke Island.

Aldrin: And, Mike, if you want our target Delta-V, I'll give it to you. [Garble] you don't know how to do it.

Collins: Yes, I guess it's 5 minutes after you do this before...

Aldrin: I've got it.

Collins: I'm pumping up cabin pressure.

Collins: Translational Control Power is On.

Armstrong: Okay, how about MSFN...

Duke: Oh, Okay. We're reading the same. T-3 time - correction T-3, T-3 TIG: 104:39:41.00, 001:58:15.00, 001:58:54.00. You probably...

Aldrin: Maybe I could slide out of here [garble].

Armstrong: Okay.

Aldrin: Okay.

Duke: Looks like they're hogging the windows.

Aldrin: Everything I think you could dislodge, they forgot to put Velcro on the damn thing.

Armstrong: [Garble] be sure and get the right one [garble]... Okay.

Collins: No, TLI plus 90 and TLI plus 4 hours. Thank you a lot. I'd do worse because I'd be a - a full degree off from where it is right now.

Aldrin: (Laughter) [Garble] Oh, let me - here, let me...

Evans: Roger. Request P00 and Accept. You can press on with the SECS logic.

Collins: CMC, Auto. Houston, did you copy our residuals?

Aldrin: Moving in.

Aldrin: Well, do you want to get ahead on a few things? (Static) ...for [garble]...

Armstrong: Four minutes.

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

Collins: Okay, Owen.

Collins: Got it. Because, I don't know, maybe they want all that stuff done on the back side. Okay.

Collins: Houston, Columbia's in Omni C, Charlie, Down Voice Backup and, when you get a chance, could you look up the coordinates of 130 for me, please? That's correct.

Armstrong: Looks like powdered graphite to me.

Aldrin: Why don't you guys sleep underneath tonight? I essentially have so much glare coming onto my visor (garbled) shadow until (garbled) helmet actually gets in the shadow. I've got an Easter egg coming up, gentlemen.

Aldrin: Alright, fire it again.

onboard): (Garbled)

onboard): Okay.

onboard): The Eagle has wings.

Aldrin: Did you use this thing? Yes, you were at 2...

Duke: Roger. Over. We're standing by for Eagle. Over.

Collins: Okay? Thank you for everything.

McCandless: 11, this is Houston. We copy. We concur.

McCandless: We're showing a waste-water quantity of about 13 percent on TM now, 11.

Collins: ...it sounds a little scratchy to us too, but the czar likes it.

Armstrong: I'd say the color of the local surface is very comparable to that we observed from orbit at this Sun angle - about 10 degrees Sun angle, or that nature. Just a second, I'll be right with you. Yes, they're on the same page.

PAO: We're 7 minutes, 44 seconds from entry [that is, after entry].

Collins: Isn't that beautiful? Looks good up here too, Bruce. How many minutes we got - to AOS?

Armstrong: Roger.

McCandless: What was that? We don't need to do it right now; we'd just like to confirm that our instrumentation is in good shape. Over.

McCandless: That's affirmative, Columbia. Go ahead with the probe, now.

McCandless: Roger. Out. Well, if you don't get in the way of the Czar while he's brushing his teeth, we'd like you to bring up the primary accumulator quantity a little bit. Real time exercise?

Collins: Step 11 complete. Pitch 230.

Collins: Okay. Huh?

McCandless: Okay. (Long Pause)

Armstrong: Did you copy our music down there?

Aldrin: And I've got the 80 percent (oxygen), no flags.

Collins: Roger.

Aldrin: Okay.

Duke: Roger.

Collins: I'd prefer you stand by just a couple of seconds, Neil.

Aldrin: Well, I hope - I hope they have the data that shows just what we did have at contact when they can get photographs [garble] all the film we got. [Garble.]

McCandless: Okay. Over.

Aldrin: Well, a crater... Ready to copy. I believe this is normal. More, even, than the efforts of one nation. [Long pause.] Is it normal to have these four red flags? Over. Yes, the one on your side is [garble]. So they didn't move very far, about 30 degrees apiece; and then they picked right back on up again. Is 22 going to be adequate?

Armstrong: 2 minutes to get our horizon check at 10 degrees.

McCandless: Roger.

Armstrong: [Garble] alright, isn't it?

Aldrin: Roger.

McCandless: Roger. That sounds fine to us.

Aldrin: Rotation Control Power, Normal, number 2, to AC.

Armstrong: ...that's a good idea, good head. Anything I can do to help? [garble] like - gangbusters?

McCandless: Columbia.

Aldrin: 3.8.

Collins: Makes you almost glad to get master alarms!

Aldrin: Standing by.

Armstrong: Thank you.

Aldrin: Those little - fluorescent things on there must be from the heat and transfer. Hey, Charlie, are you saying that for a short period of time, he actually loaded Noun 20 with some value other than what's being read by the CDU?

Armstrong: Roger.

Armstrong: (Garbled) cooling unit circuit (garbled).

Evans: 11, Houston. Say again about your Noun 49. Go.

Collins: Houston, this is Columbia.

Armstrong: I don't want to go into the Sun if I can avoid it.

Duke: That's affirmative.

Collins: Glad to hear it.

McCandless: When you move on into P23, we recommend that you use the CMC-computed angles for your Auto maneuver and see how that works out. The Armed Forces radio and TV network in Vietnam gave the mission full coverage. Over. Correction on my last. Out. Roger.

Aldrin: ... [garble] at the beginning.

Armstrong: I guess it just glanced off another particle or something.

Aldrin: Roger.

Collins: Rog.

Armstrong: Not yet. Good trim.

McCandless: Roger. It's trunnion 242. TEI-4 revised: SPS/G&N: 38320, minus 0.55, plus 0.60; 084:30:27.49; plus 3138.0, plus 0347.5, minus 0103.2; roll NA: pitch, 034. (Long Pause) When you're ready to copy, I have an LOI-2 PAD and a TEI-5 PAD. ] [No answer.]

Aldrin: ... a double blind on this? Over. Do you have voice with "each other".

Collins: Stand by for TIG. ] Roger. Now...

Duke: Eagle, Houston. Thank you much. Correction, the Direct O2.

Aldrin: Roger.
