Apo11o ll

Garbled transmissions.

Evans: Roger.

Collins: I want to look at the DAP again and enter a Verb 48, Enter.

McCandless: Apollo 11, this is Houston. Over.

Armstrong: ...and you could be busy getting up supplies if you... Oh, I got them.

Aldrin: Houston, Tranquility.

McCandless: Roger. Out. Over.

Armstrong: Okay.

Aldrin: Circuit breakers, Direct Ullage, two, closed.

Evans: Eagle, Houston. Have a good trip, and ma...

Evans: Columbia, Houston... The research submarine Ben Franklin, which is studying the Gulf Stream, set a record by drifting 24 hours from 10 to 100 feet above the ocean floor in 1300 feet of water off the Georgia coast. Eagle, Houston.

Aldrin: Yes.

Armstrong: Very good. Need some light?

Aldrin: BMAG Mode, three of them, to Rate 2. I see that probe over on the (south) strut (garbled) broken off and bent back up.

Collins: Old A-1. Roll - roll locks a little large, especially, there. Everything else is done. ] Okay, I have thrusters B3 and C4 safetied.

Armstrong: Yes, I believe it.

Armstrong: I'll get them. And I'll cut off if the G&N says...

Aldrin: Houston, Tranquility. ...

McCandless: Roger. And we're watching you on TM down here.

Collins: Your f:8 is 250 - at infinity?

Armstrong: Stand by. (Pause)

Armstrong: Reading you loud and clear, Houston.

Collins: Buzz, you want to read us that checklist?

Aldrin: Roger, Houston.

Armstrong: Okay.

Aldrin: Your Man(ual) Att(itude), Pitch, to Accel Command? Going in? Okay.

McCandless: For use in connection with that time on the prime meridian crossing, you have an orbital period now of 2 hours, 8 minutes and 37 seconds. It looks like this would give - let the computer work with a knowledge of the actual CDU angles. And we see the shadow of the LM.

Collins: Yeah.

Collins: Columbia.

Armstrong: ...contrast has increased and only the sunlit side of these ridges remain illuminated, while the dark sides and the shadow will become completely black.

Collins: Okay. (Faint, joking) How about sending me a fourth gimbal for Christmas.

Collins: Okay. Just like the simulator. Going in SECS Arm Batt A, and Batt B. Ready to copy.

Aldrin: Okay. Roll 096, 356, 018; star 01 [garble]. Go ahead.

Aldrin: Okay, we're getting it. Got it.

Armstrong: The MESA is not down, right?

Aldrin: Tell me when. Right.

Armstrong: 1511 - 357.

Duke: Rog. Go ahead.

Duke: Roger. Stand by. The world's press has been dominated by news of Apollo 11. (Pause; static clears)

Armstrong: Okay, it's at Standby.

Collins: Yes, Neil's standing on his head again.

Aldrin: ...(garbled under Mike) flags showing red right now.

Duke: Roger. [Pause.]

Collins: Roger.

Armstrong: Okay.

Aldrin: Okay.

Collins: I'm glad to hear it was fit to print.

Aldrin: Hey, Mike, can you see where our radar's pointing now?

Collins: Charlie, Apollo 11.

Aldrin: Rog. We're going to S-band modulate FM. It looks like we're venting the oxidizer now.

Lovell: This is Houston. [Pause.]

Collins: FDAI scale, 50/15.

Armstrong: He's about 15 feet out now.

Collins: Old star number 30 looks like it's right dab smack in the middle of the sextant.

McCandless: Roger, Mike. (Pause)

Aldrin: At least, we can forget them until the debriefing. My eyes aren't very well adapted. No, no.

McCandless: Roger. Over.

Armstrong: Okay, Mike, I'll get - try to get in position here, and then you got it. No, no, no.

McCandless: Are you wide open on the f-stop at this time?

Armstrong: Okay.

Aldrin: You got to look through the part of the window that isn't...

Collins: Chamber pressure is 100 psi even.

Evans: Tranquility, Houston. Air Boss has the visual contact. Thank you. Correct.

Collins: Well - no, I haven't tried a whole number of alternatives.

Duke: We'll call you. Over.

PAO: One minute left to burn.

Collins: ...whether I'm spaced properly or not, you know what I mean?

Armstrong: Okay.

PAO: The back-up Lunar Module Pilot Fred Haise is at the CapCom console with Bruce McCandless.

Swimmer: [Garble]. [Garble] Photo 1 [garble] the first ast [garble]. All the astronauts are out.

Hornet: Hornet, roger. Roger.

Photo 1: The flotation collar has been attached [garble] flotation.

Photo 1: This is Photo 1.

Armstrong: You got [garble] to [garble]? Okay?

Collins: Roger.

Evans: Apollo 11, Houston. Looking great. We got about 2 minutes to LOS here, Mike. And I have the changes there if you want to get out your surface checklist, and I can go ahead and start giving them to you. Mark.

Aldrin: Yes, I stuck it some place.

Duke: Hello, Apollo 11. Over. [Pause.] The - the update there, Neil, you are speaking of about the one axis down to 5 minutes of low gate? Looks like to us it's going to work real well.

Aldrin: That's right.

Duke: We see you exercising. One minute to LOS.

Collins: Okay.

Evans: Apollo 11. Over.

Evans: Also your VL and - and Max and Min, I'm sure, are 22,400 and 18,000. Because of the lower load with the rendezvous radar off, we'd like to have battery 5 and 6 on the line now, 1 and 3 off. It'll be on Warm-up prior to that time, and you can go to Operate anywhere around that time. Roger. (Pause) Columbia, request P00 and Accept. We want to wait on that P57 until about TIG minus 50 minutes. ]

Collins: Okay.

Armstrong: No. It fills about three-quarters of the hatch window, and of course, we can see the entire circumference, even though part of it is in complete shadow and part of it's in Earthshine. [Garble] and a half.

Duke: Eagle, this is Houston. [Long pause.]

Collins: ...book put back together here.

McCandless: Roger. We certainly are. Out. Out.

Aldrin: Roger, LOI-2: SPS/G&N: 38320, plus 1.66, minus 0.81; 080:11:36.03; minus 0140.8, minus all balls, minus 0074.3. Rotation Controller, Armed.

Collins: Well, we should have Tananarive. They're packed. I know, I was looking at it upside down for a while.

Collins: No lie!

McCandless: Roger. Over.

Collins: We're in Block.

Aldrin: Oh. I can't see a crapping [garble]. You can have your place now.

Duke: Roger. [Long pause.] I can imagine.

Aldrin: What? [Garble] love them [garble]. I can see the entire landing area from the position I'm in, looking out the left window in the LM.

Armstrong: Ah...

Duke: And, Apollo 11, Houston.

Armstrong: Yes.

McCandless: Roger. Mario Andretti won the 200-mile Trenton Auto Race, Sunday, and is now the leading race driver in the US Auto Club's point standings. If you can find the LM, of course. Level sense arm at 8 plus 17; outboard cut-off at 9 plus 11.

Data from The Apollo 11 Flight Journal and The Apollo 11 Surface Journal, mashed up by Leonard Richardson. We came in peace for all mankind.
