Flight Data File

SHEPARD I didn't see anything had about these things since we helped author most of them. ROOSA I think Chuck Stough and his associates did a gr t job. I think they were more than eager to work with us in anything that we had. I started working with Chuck real early on the flight plan and the Solo Book. They were more than eager to try to make it the way we wanted it. I think the system worked real well because back when we said we would go with one flight plan in January and a different one in...

Info

Preference to leave the pantry items for a flight where you have more time to sit down and relax. Then it may he nice to have to worry about what you're going to eat. Fran my point of view, I would prefer to go to the programed menu all the way. We decided ahead of time what we wanted and we bought off on the menus. I would prefer to see it programed, I prefer the wetpacks and the cans to the spoon bowl packages. Here again, it's probably a function of room more than it is anything else. It was...

Emu Systems

SHEPARD Why don't I just go through the discussion of ray EMU systems and you can go through yours, and you can go through yours, Stu. The hiomed sensor problems have already been mentioned. LCG operated satisfactorily. I found that I had to cut the strap that held those hoses where they manifolded together they come up under the vertical riser on the underwear. I cut them loose to make a good fold to prevent blanching underneath the suit. Once that little retention strap was cut, everything...

Lm

SHEPARD Well, as far as the LM is concerned, I'd like to echo Stu's comment. I thought the preflight support here in Houston and at the Cape was excellent. The system was very responsive. I felt we were in great shape on all the items we used. Again, as in the command module, we didn't use any of the contingency items, but we had used them in preflight simulations and felt our total data file was in good shape in all respects. MITCHELL You can arrange these items and package them almost to crew...

Sunlight And Csm Docking Lights

The attitude for docking was perfect. The Sun was never a problem. I never used sunglasses at any time and never needed any lights. The only time that the docking target was in the shadow was about the last foot before contact. Even in the shadow you could see it very easily. The sunlight was absolutely a no-sweat thing. The COAS was always visible. We didn't need the CSM docking lights. MITCHELL We skipped that high gain antenna activation. I'd like to make a comment on that. At this point in...

Csm Circumlunar Operations Landmark Tracking

ROOSA With one exception, the landmark tracking went extremely well. I thought the lunar graphics I had on board were quite adequate. I had spent some time before flight studying all the landmarks. It was so easy, I guess maybe most of that time was wasted now. You could take the graphics and pick up the lead-in and track the landmarks I'm sure, without having seen a picture of them with just one or two exceptions. I had no trouble acquiring the landmarks or tracking them, with the exception of...

SHEPARD

ROOSA Oh, we tried it four or five times. We gave it a good show, SHEPARD Concerning metal composites, there's not too much to talk about procedurally on that, either. It was a very simple procedure. It was time consuming, and it could only be done with no jets firing so it was pretty much restricted to the PTC time line. We did samples 1 through 12, excluding 3. And, the reason we didn't do more was that there just wasn't time. I have only one comment during number 12, a small number of jet...

Nr Evaluator And Gac Fmes

The docking training you get in the CMS is more than adequate. I used the North American Evaluator about 2 years ago now anyway, quite early in the training cycle and it was all right because there wasn't anything else available. I never did fly the actual hardware evaluator. I used the FMES early in the game. With the fidelity of the LMS at this point in time, I don't think it is a necessary training device. If any questions arise that cannot be adequately answered on the LMS, we can always...

Tli Preparation

We got the updates all right, didn't MITCHELL Oh yes, we had plenty of time on that. I don't believe we read out the numbers to anybody on the SCS attitude reference check. For the record, we should read the SCS attitude check. For the DSKY, the numbers were 180.09, plus 128.00, and 000.22 for the ascent values, we had 180.9, 128.8, 359-8, and that was to null the FDAI-1 error needles. SHEPARD Since we're going to talk about it later, we probably ought to comment here about...
