Okay. Fuel cell plan is relatively simple. We're Just going to leave it off line, open-circuit, and we want you to turn the fuel cell 1 in-line heaters off and then monitor the skin temperature. Monitor the temperature to stay between 390 and hl0, cycling the in-line heaters on and off to maintain 390 to 410. This will keep our water production to a minimum, reducing our requirement to purge, and we may be able to go as long as 50 hours *'ithout purging. During the day, we will work out procedures to use during your sleep period on skin temperature. Over. Okay, Jack. You must have been reading the same malfunction procedures as I was. The fuel cell heater has been off - well, ever since we went through LOS. I fve got a question on that heater. It's an AUTO heater which recycles somewhere around 380, 390 degrees.

Okay. Real fine. And Just - you might pass along to the FID0 troops do_n there that we noticed a star we couldn't identify coming up, and we said, well, there must be something else in orbit with us. And sure enough, this last pass it got close enough. It's the bottom part of Snoopy, and Gene-o with the monocular could see his legs - th_ reflection off his legs. So as he went out in behind us, like I guess I read that one state ..., but we're going to slowly catch up with him. We're starting to catch up with the bottom part of Snoop, but something has torqued him out of plane a little bit, and he's going out of plane to the south of us. Maybe a mascon grabbed ahold of him or something_ but we're catching up with him. There is no doubt about it; and we can actually see different colors in reflected light Off the black in the silver panels. Over. Roger. ... Got the data there, Houston? Stand by. Copy, babe. 10, Houston. We can - you can increase your marking time slightly if you'll push your pitch rate up a little bit as you go through the marking cycle. Over. Okay. Shoot, we know that.

Hey, Joe, we got another fuel cell problem we want to throw at you. It's fuel cell 2. The condenserexhaust temperature is cycling - the condenser-exhaust temperature is cycling on fuel cell 2 between the top of the green band; between about 175 degrees and down to about 155 degrees - about; it's cycling 2 cycles per minute. It's been doing this at least for the last _5 - 30 or 40 minutes. And about one in every 10 cycles, it rings the MASTER ALARM for low condenserexhaust temperature on fuel cell 2. In addition, I
