INTRODUCTION

This document is the transcription of the Skylab 1/4 flight crew


commlmications (1) as recorded on the eom-_udmodule (CM) data storage
equipment (DSE) and (2) as recorded on the airlock module (AM) recorder.
Data from these recorders are telemetered (dumped) to Space Tracking
and Data Network (STDN) sites for retransmission to the Lyndon B. Johnson
Space Center. Transcription of these tapes was managed by William A.
Kelley, Test Division, Program Operations Office, to whom inquiries
regarding this document should be referred.

The transcript is divided into three columns -- time, speaker, and


text. The Greenwich mean time (GMT) cOll*mn consists of four multidigit
numbers representing days, hours, minutes, and seconds (e.g., 209 22 3h 14)
for the Julian dates shown as the first three numbers of the time column.
The speaker colllmn indicates the source of a transmission; the text
column contains the verbatim transcript of the communications.

Speakers in the transcript are identified as follows:

Spacecraft:

CDR Comm_nder Gerald P. (Jerry) Carr

PLT Pilot WilliamR. (Bill)Pogue

SPT Scientist pilot Edward G. (Ed) Gibson

CREW Unidentifiable erewmember

MS Multiple speakers

Mission Control Centers:

AA Unidentified station

CC Capsule communicator (CAP COMM)

MCC Unidentified speaker, other than CC, in the Mission


Operations Control Room or a Staff Support Room.

In the text, a series of three dots (...) is used to designate those


portions of the co_m_unications that could not be transcribed because of
garbling. One dash (-) is used to indicate a speaker's pause or a self-
interruption. Two dashes(- -) are used to indicate an interruption by
another speaker or a point at which a recording was abruptly terminated.
_ Words given unusual emphasis by the speaker are underlined.

CDR NOUN 49. Come on now, think about it a little


bit.

CDR Yea: ... it.

SPT Flick the sides of the mall light thing and it'll

SPT ...

SPT Bill, now let's see, how you work this little
Jobber-do? You Just stick it on the end and Just
fit it in there, huh?

PLT Yes. Hold it on and pull the little fork out,


pull the little thing out. The top is cold; the
bottom is hot .... Then you have to wait. As
you push it in, you pull the little thing to
hold ...

SPT ... I see.

PLT ...

SPT ... put a mark in here?

CDR Gosh, I can't get anything out of this thing.

SPT I keep having the feeling that David Brooks and

CDR Yes. Here is the Activation Checklist.

PLT Man, I'm hot over on this side.

CDR It's getting hot here, too.

320 22 ll l0 SPT Man, I'll tell you, you sure couldn't play this
thing by ear and all that good simulator time sure
pays off.

CDR Yes.

PLT Well, I think I'll put the Launch Checklist up.

SPT Okay, as usual, there's a ... here.

CREW ...

B20 22 ii 34 SPT ... I'm taking out an Activation Checklist there,


Bill. Tell you what, why don't Just give me the

other activation Jobber-do out.

SPT Okay. Stow that fellow.

SPT I know, I'm going to start - taking off the -


those lanyards and start putting it on the Launch

320 22 14 05 CDR Yes, Bill, I'm the guy that put that in there.
And I got it out of the late update with the red
lines in it that - -

PLT Well, I looked at that and I checked for change in


the settings and I didn't see any up there. I
thought I'd checked that. But I guess I missed it.

CDR Vehicle to vehicle it says on F-11.

320 22 14 28 SPT You know the darn - I've never learned to put
these darn things in here. You know how these
things fit in those little clips? I figured any
time in the simulator these clips were all bent
out of heck and that's why they didn't work. But
here these things are exactly the same way.

320 22 14 42 PLT I'll come down there and take a look at it. Man,
I am really hot.

CDR I'm starting to sweat, too. I think we're all


sweating a little bit there.

one down here. Okay. You want to keep one of
these, Bill? That would make a nice - tell me

to put it, Bill. You got a checklist of your own,
or something?

320 22 15 53 PLT No.

SPT You want me to put in this ditty bag over here of


a ... Bravo?

CDR We'll put it in the back of this Rendezvous Book.


I'll do it.

SPT Okay. I guess this other one doesn't have any


marks on it. CSM Launch Checklist. Bill do you
have anything in this checklist in the back?

320 22 16 14 PLT I had some photographic settings in it. I don't


want to lose track of it. I want to tear them
out later on.

SPT Okay, I'll just put them - I'll put them up here
in R-I then. Sitting here in R-I. We got some
more room left in R-I for small checklist. This
thing we usually got out of the charts. Let's see
where did I put that chart book. Shove this thing
back up here. Let's see, the Rendezvous Book
goes back with us, doesn't it? Yes, ... record of
it. All the thing ... place. Hello, you mother.
Oh, that's beautiful.

CDR What is the source of the light? Is that Earth's


albedo or something? Or is that sunset?

I guess I gave them to you and you put them
up here somewhere.

PLT Here are the malls but ... put them away for a
while.

SPT So far this machine has behaved perfectly.


There's been only one little tiny funny. There
they are. You little fellows get up there. Man,
you're right, it is getting hot.

320 22 18 57 PLT I'm going to hit these cabin fans once, see what
they do.

SPT They can make a lot of noise.

320 22 19 ll CDR Oh, I feel cool air though.

SPT Yes, that helps.

320 23 25 26 CDR It's in the window shade bag.

SPT Oh, okay, thank you ...

320 23 25 46 SPT Here we are.

320 23 _i 40 SPT It looks clean as a hound's tooth. Okay ...


let's go for a procedure that's more important.
Okay, now. Oh, shoot; where the heck am I here?
On day 2, gosh darn it - day i, dn...._r.

SPT Okay, hatch - hatch verification. And it's on


a decal. Latch handle, pull lightly to verify
your hooks are engaged on 12 latches.

CDR All right. Okay, number l's not engaged fully.


Okay, number - -

SPT No, not engaged - attempt to engage before


releasing. Why don't you just hit it? Is that
all you can do?

CDR No, it feels like it's clear over, but the


handle pulls out.

SPT All right, let's - Let me make a note here.

CDR That 's number 1.

SPT Number 1 handle pulls out.

CDR Yes.

SPT Number 2 is good.


_ 61

320 23 43 02 CDR Yes, the button's not flush on number i. 3 is


okay, 4 is okay, 5 is okay, 6 is okay, 7, 8, 9,
10, ll, 12. Number l's the only one.

SPT Okay. Now - latch button flush; you've looked


I for that. Power - power bungee fairing,parallel
to plus-X.

CDR The latch button is not quite flush. The power


bungee looks like it is parallel though.

SPT Okay, but the red button is out, huh?

CDR It's Just out slightly.

320 23 _3 56 SPT Okay, now let's see. Let me read you the
contingencies here, Jerry. If not parallel,
which it is, you push the plus-X end of the
bungee before releasing. Unlocked latches -
Let me give it a smack. Can you see it? Is it
made up over there?

CDR Oh, yes. The hook's clear over the ring.

SPT The hook is clear over.

CDR It's just that the little latch here is - See


the handle move?

SPT Yes.

CDR And all the rest of them are - are latched.

SPT I'm not sure what the heck you do in that


situation.

CDR Well, I think you recock it and let her rip


again; I'm not sure.

SPT Okay. Unlocked latches - I guess that's what


they mean. Release - cock - release latches -
That means cock it. Hook does not disengage.
Auxiliary, yellow, push; release, cock, latch.
Think that my - my reading of that leaves a little
bit to be desired, Jer. It's that lower right-
hand corner.

CDR Okay.
J

62 _

320 23 h5 06 SPT You don't try that yellow jobber-do first, do


you?

CDR No, I don't think so. That's how you get it to


come open.

320 23 45 51 CDR I think probably what I ought to do is cock it


and let her rip, but I think I'll wait - we'll
wait and ask the ground and make sure.

320 23 46 24 CDR Wish I had something to hit it with.

SPT Well, let me see. You want to rap it with tool


E?

CDR Yes, that's an idea. It's not very heavy, though.


Here 's your book.

SPT Okay.

CDR Tool E is right over here. But that might just


be what it takes.

SPT (Hammering) Well, can't think of anything else -


except the EREP tape.

CDR Well, we'll Just wait and ask the ground. I


think -

SPT Let's see, when did he say he was coming up


again?

CDR Ah, at about 52 or 54, something like that.

SPT Okay, tell you what we'll do, Jer - -

CDR Says right on the handle to reset, unlatch the


handle latch, pull back to full stroke, and then
release it.

320 23 47 2h SPT I think that's the only thing we can do, Jer.
Why don't you go ahead and give it a go?

CDR Might Just as well, I guess. It's only one


latch. Wouldn't want to -

SPT l, 2 - Stand by for a clang.


CDR That did it.

SPT Okay. And so, what'd you do there? That was -

CDR I Just recoeked it and manually released it and


I it went. So we can tell them that when we tal_
to them.

SPT Recocked number 1.

SPT Boy, I feel like I'm standing on my head in here.


You know, I feel - I think when the blood goes
to your head, you get that feeling.

CDR Yes.

320 23 48 12 SPT My head - Boy, I felt as though I was upside down


at that panel there. Okay, GN 2 BT.RRn button,
red; press l0 seconds.

CDR Okay.

SPT Man, you really got me'

CDR Did I?

SPT Yes, really blasted me. I bet you that helped


the cabin pressure ...

CDR Don't think we got 02 flow high any more.

SPT Okay. Record the docking ang - angle index to


0.1 ... I don't have a flash. Yours I guess
we can ...

CDR Oh, I can see it okay. The docking angle index.


There's no ... near here. I thought there was.
Supposed to be.

SPT Heck, all there is is Just a mark in there.

320 23 49 17 CDR Well, there's point - -

SPT Can you read it to O.l?

CDR Yes. 0.7.


64

SPT That's a plus?

CDR Plus 0.7.

320 23 49 36 SPT Okay, and the viewing is going into nighttime.


CM hatch installation. Oh shoot, I hate to do I
that.

CDR Yes.

SPT That's a shame. Well, I guess if you take -


try taking that probe out, you're really - -

CDR Yes, then we got to live with the darn thing.

SPT Yes, shoot.

CDR All right, let's - let me peek up here a little


bit more.

SPT Can you see anything - -

MS +.,

SPT Around the drogue or the - how's it feel? Feel


the top of the -

CDR Well, let's see. Well, there's a good gouge in


that - in the drogue. Some dents.

SPT ... of it?

CDR I don't know. I'm sure it's not mine (laughter).


I didn't hit it hard enough to hurt anything.
Oh, the - the egs of the probe are warm, like
they been sitting out in the sunshine awhile.

SPT ... forest fire down there ....

320 23 51 05 CDR There's only one place on the drogue that looks
like it's been hurt; it's bent. It's got - it's
got a crease in it. And it missed about - look
like whoever it was that hit it, missed within
about 3 inches of the edge of the probe, and
then Just put a big dent in it and slid on down
into the hole. Want to go out and look at it,
Ed, before we ...
65

SPT Yes, sure.

SPT (Singing) Someone's rocking my dream boat.

CDR Okay, go ahead, Ed. I'm just going to stay


I quietlyhere for a minute.

320 23 51 54 SPT Hey, did anyone ever get a - a picture of the


drogue? You know, we ought to do that. Come
on there, comm cable.

CDR I'm pretty sure Pete and those guys did, for
that failure analysis of theirs.

CDR What the heck am I hanging up here?

CDR There you are.

SPT Okay, thank you. 0h, yes.

CDR Feel that thing ; it 's real dent.

SPT That's right. You're right; that probe's a little


warm, too. Oh, shoot,this gear sure is nice
when it's working. Little cooped in here.

CDR There ain't anywhere to sleep in here.

SPT Well, I think I can find some room underneath the


couch there. Heck, I can sleep up here in the
tunnel.

320 23 53 07 CREW Boy, that is a beauty.

SPT Isn't that a hnmmer?

CDR Boy, that b,,mmer is - that isn't in it. You are


right '

SPT Yes.

CDR That is pretty. Snap that one.

SPT We're going to take a picture and try to point -

CDR Maybe we can get a relief on it, or something,


that will put us on - put an angle on it?
66

SPT Okay, Bill, I ...

CDR Okay, read on there, monsieur, and we'll wind


this mess up.

SPT Okay. Let me go back here at the CM hatch


integrity check, now. Where are you? Have you
gone to the MDA TUNNEL VENT?

320 23 53 _8 CDR Yes, I did it for 30 seconds, and it's back


down to delta ... DELTA-P.

###
_-_ DAY 321 (CSM) 67

321 00 01 47 SPT Okay. Check the DELTA-P, recycle to MDA TUNNEL


VENT until DELTA-P greater than 3.5, around
8-1/2 minutes. Now your delta-P didn't change,
did it?

I CDR Yes,it did. It wentup a tad. ,

SPT It went up a tad?

CDR Yes. What it's supposed to do? What we're


doing is we're venting air out of there. Okay,
it's up to 2 now.

321 00 02 i0 SPT Oh, yes. But what I mean is, you went to MDA
TUNNEL VENT for 30 seconds.

CDR Yes.

SPT And then you went to MDA/CM DELTA-P.

CDR Yes, and it read about 0.4.

SPT Oh, I see. We Just verify - oh, we don't -


Okay,waita minute.

CDR Now it's up to 0.2 and holding.

SPT Well, it takes around 8-1/2minutes apparently.

CDR Okay.

SPT Okay, you get the delta-P greater than 3.5.


Then we verify MDA/CM DELTA-P indicator constant
about point - plus, minus 0.2 at last value for
2minutes. Record value.

321 00 03 21 SPT Who are we going to be talking to tonight?


Probably not Jerry Hordinsky. Maybe it's going
to be ...

CDR Oh, we're talking to Zieglschm_d.

SPT Oh, boy. Guess we'll have to ... Well, darn.

SPT Well, I guess we'll tell them we Just - we got


some of the good news in it but not all of it.

SPT Good pills.

f_
68

SPT ... Going to be watching the 02 FLOW, here.

CDR That 0.2 looks good.

CDR Hey, that looks like long - Oh, no, here comes
theSun. !

321 00 04 18 SPT Oh, yes.

321 O0 05 19 CDR This DELTA-P gage isn't doing a darn thing yet.
Sitting at 1.8 - ...

SPT 1.8?

CDR Yes.

SPT Did it get off 1.87

CDR Yes.

SPT Now it's just laying there, huh? Well, they


give you 8-1/2 minutes or so, and it's supposed
to get greater than 3-1/2. Gee, that's such a
darn small orifice there. Did you notice - did ....
you time that? I'm sorry, Jerry, I should've
taken that time hack for you.

CDR Oh, that's all right. Yes. It's 8 minutes ...

SPT Well, let's see, it started out at zero, huh?

CDR Yes.

321 O0 05 59 SPT Well, maybe it's working its way up there, Jer.

CDR How's that 02 FLOW?

SPT 02 FLOW was 0.2 or less when I looked at it.


Still at 0.2.

CDR Okay. So we're not leaking anything out of here.


Well, let me look at the CABIN PRESSURE. That's
the real hooker. That's hard to say. Yes, it's
up. It's still 4 point - I could give it a 4.8.

SPT You know it didn't change very much before when


we - Let's see, we - we didn't vent the tunnel
69

before. When we filled it up we only dropped,


at the most, point - 0.1-1/2 or 0.2 in here,
and that was, you know, on a full range.

SPT Is that thing still sitting there?


l
CDR Yes. Maybe it's being fed by the workshop.

SPT No, the work - You know, they would have noticed
that the - the workshop would be - be able to
pick up that ...

321 00 07 24 CDR This decal in here says verify cab - the pressure
in the cabin where - you know, 4.7 to 5.2. And
open the TUNNEL VENT valve for 30 seconds, and
then go back to DELTA-P, and recycle until
greater than 3.5.

SPT Then wait 8-1/2 minutes in there.

CDR Yes.

SPT Verify MDA/CM DELTA-P indicator constant - in-


F dicationconstantat 0.2, plus, minus 0.2 ... - -

321 00 07 55 CDR Oh, wait a minute. I know what I'm supposed to


do. I'm supposed to be turning this thing off,
checking DELTA - MDA/CM DELTA-P. Yes. I was
looking at it in the TUNNEL VENT and expecting
to see something. It's 2.5 now.

SPT Oh, okay. Hello, Sun. Man, you're a bright


mother.

321 00 09 29 CDE Is it around 8-1/2 minutes or so?

SPT When it get 's greater than 2.5, that 's when you

CDR Okay, it's gone now to 2 - about 2.7 now. It


takes time, I guess. It's got that little tiny
• orificethere.

321 00 l0 49 CDR Takes longer than 8-1/2 minutes. It's 2.8 now.

SPT Well, okay. Well, we can time how long it takes


to get to 3-1/2. Did you start your watch, Jer,
at delta time?
7o

CDR No, I didn't.

SPT Shoot.

CDR Well, yes I did. I - I started at the count of


30 seconds. Then it was probably about a minute
after that?

SPT Yes.

321 00 ll 19 CDR 12 - 12 minutes right now.

SPT Feeling any better, Bill?

PLT ...

SPT Lay there and take it easy. Anything we can do


for you?

CDR How's your urine bag? Is it full? Keep trying


that; that'll probably make you feel better.

SPT Want anything to dr_nk?

321 O0 12 l0 CDR Okay, it's up to 3.0 now.

321 00 13 52 CDR 3.3.

SPT Okay, do you make anything out of the next one,


which says verify MDA/CM DELTA-P indicators -
indication constant at plus or minus 0.2 at last
value for 2 minutes?

CDR Well - -

SPT What position is your valve in?

CDR It's locked OFF then.

SPT Oh, okay.

CDR You get a delta-P of 3.5 between us and the


tunnel, and then we turn it off and watch it for
2 minutes to make sure it doesn't creep.

SPT Okay.

321 O0 14 44 CDR It would mean we're leaking into there. 3.4.


321 00 16 39 CDR That's good enough, 3.45.

SPT Okay, Now we hold that for 2 minutes. Okay,


3.45, ... 15 minutes.

CDR ...

SPT (Laughter)

CDR I don't know. Longest zero-g airplane I've ever


ridden on•

SPT Yes.

321 00 18 30 SPT How's your 2 minutes there?

CDR About 20 seconds to go.

SPT ... 2.45 ...

CDR It 's about a 3.5 • No change.

SPT Okay.

321 O0 19 23 CDR Okay, what's our next step?

SPT Verify 02 FLOW indicator with no increase. And


•.. MPC here. And verified• Okay, TUNNEL LIGHTS,
OFF.

CDR ...

SPT ...

CDR Okay, I guess that means I'm leaving.

SPT Yes, turn the lights out on you ...

321 00 19 49 CDR The evening status report and a med conference.


Let me write - What time is it here? What time
is -

SPT 01:04 is the Goldstone pass.

CDR And what is that?

SPT And then we don't do anything, I guess. We got


72

a evening report at 01:S0.

CDR Okay, that's coming up in an hour.

SPT And then we've got a med conference at 02:38.


Okay?

CDR Okay.

SPT We got it all - I don't ... here. Now food.


Meal C. Log menu deviation, CSM Systems Checklist,
S-8.

CDR Well we very nicely stowed the CSM Systems


Checklist in bag number Alfa.

SPT That was very, terribly dumb, wasn't it? I'll


tell you what I'll do. I'll get that fellow out
and meal C is on the side of A-7. Well, wish we
had a rubber band here.

PLT ...

SPT Pardon,

CDR Okay .... Oh, gee. Ed, don't do that.

SPT You have to ..., Bill? Just relax there, Bill.

CDR Red is for CDR. I don't think I'll - I'll mention


anything, Bill, tonight about it. If you still

76

it. Bill, what about the menu deviations that


you made? I haven't gotten around to you yet.
That's all. Just say he's not hungry. I'm not

SPT Okay, does this stuff all go?

CDR Yes.

SPT Can I get you an orange ...?

CDR Yes, it's up here.

321 00 34 ll SPT Okay, I'll start working the - the water -

321 00 35 23 SPT You got a very full face, Jer.

CDR It feels full.

SPT ... over here.

PLT Oh, can you take that towel down there, if you
will?

CDR I'll take it, Bill.

SPT Oh, I know what 's happened.

PLT Pardon?

CDR Well, okay Just - yes. Just take it easy:

SPT No hurry.

321 00 36 16 CDR I think when they come up again, I'm going to


ask them to hold off the status report until later
because we haven't even eaten yet.

SPT Yes.

SPT ... this cable up something fierce. Wound up


with a big ... here.

CDR It's getting kind of hot in here again, isn't


it Bill? When you get to where you can move,
78

you might find it more comfortable up in the


tunnel right in front of the cabin fan; after you
get to where you can move.

PLT ...

CDR Well, let's wait until he feels like he can move.

SPT You feel like moving now?

CDR If there was some way of funneling it down to you.

321 00 37 46 SPT Yes. We need a big elephant trunk or something.


That would funnel it down there.

CDR That thing' s armed.

SPT I'ii make it. Take it slow, Bill. Now lock your
head on the hoses. There you go. Turn and it's
looking right at you.

PLT ...

SPT Good.

CDR That's okay to grab the hand controller. It's


locked.

SPT Yes, I wish I knew how much this thing dispenses.

CDR I think it dispenses an ounce. Let me look here.


It'll probably tell us.

SPT Okay.

321 00 B9 12 CDR CSM food hydration water dispenses 1-ounce shots.

SPT It'll be kind of tough to get l-l/2 ounces in


here, isn't it?

SPT I could give you a total water count too, Jer,


when I - over and above what I've had.

CDR Okay. Good deal. Why don't you tell - tell me


that now, Just for water.

SPT Okay. Let me find my - You want to hand me that


empty thing right above there?
79

CDR Yes.

SPT I think I got four notches in it; I'm not sure.


Put it right along on that.

CDR Yes, you got four.

SPT That makes four, so it was probably eight, 32


probably. That pack was full. I may be having
some more, but that's all right.

CDR Now that's 32 plus two drinks.

SPT Yes, yes, plus two drinks. Yes, I know I filled


that thing four times with water after I had the
drinks.

CDR Yes.

SPT So that 's additional.

320 00 h0 31 SPT Will this interfere with you Bill? Will this
interfere with you? I hope I don't interfere with
_ you,here.

PLT Oh, no.

CDR I'm only going to put three in m_ -

SPT I'll keep track of it for you, Jer.

CDR I'll Just give you a total.

B21 00 41 39 SPT If you want to hand me that checklist with the


menu on it, Jer, probably be very easy. I could
keep score on that thing.

CDR Okay.

SPT Can I help reconstitute anything for you, Jer?

CDR Yes, you can go ahead and do this with hot water.

SPT Okay. Tell you what - -

CDR I got a can of tomatoes around somewhere too.

SPT Oh, is that right? Let me dig back in there.


8O

CDR There's no big rush. I'ii eat that later.

SPT This is for the - m_ peas there, I was minus


1/2 ounce because I only put B in, rather than
3-1/2.

321 00 42 15 CDR A]I right.

SPT They might want to figure - I don't know if they


want a total, or if we can figure out for them
or - -

CDR He didn't have any water for lunch or any recon-


stitution, nor did I.

SPT Just the drink.

SPT Is this black thing supposed to come off? I don't


think so.

CDR No.

SPT You're supposed to cut around it here.

CDR Yes.

321 00 43 30 CDR ... tank.

SPT _-i/2. I guess I could give you _, Jer.

CDR Okay.

SPT Because of that extra gas in there - pretty -


forces it out some. All right?

SPT h for pork and potato. All right?

SPT Bill, did you eat all of your biscuits for lunch?

PLT No, I thought ...

SPT Okay. Don't worry about it. Just stay quiet.

321 00 _ 28 SPT There you is.

CDR Thank you.

SPT Yes, anything else I can do for you? ...

CDR Well, I guess you could do this ambrosia. I've


got - Put cold water in that. I've got to let

do you not?

CDR Yes.

SPT Okay. Feel better, Bill? Or you think you better


get back in?

PLT Yes.

SPT Take it easy.

PLT ...

B21 00 46 16 CDR You know, it Just doesn't make sense. 01d "Iron
Belly" over here is the one who's having trouble.
It doesn't make sense.

SPT I know. It sure doesn't. I was Just thinking


that. The guy who can do _000 whifferdrills and
never feel a thing; the guy who's got cement in
his inner ear. Jer, you may want to knead this
a little bit.

CDR Okay.

SPT I think it's going to take a little work.

CDR I wouldn't be surprised.

SPT Some of those little nubbles inthere look like


they're going to need a little time and work.
Okay, I'm going with _ spaghet [sic] now.

CDR I wish they didn't put any Velcro on these darn


things.

SPT Yes. That's - that's bad.

CDR Can you get 5 in?

SPT Yes, I did.

321 00 48 40 CDR Okay. How about your turkey rice soup? You
going to do it too?

SPT Yes, I can find it down here somewhere. I


thought I had it in my pocket. There it is. Let
me get this stuff off. Worked around here. Oh,
shoot. I don't know what I did with my spooners.
I knew I should have - I just tucked it under my
belt and it's now ...

CDR What? Your eating spoon?

SPT Guess I can always use a finger.

B21 00 50 51 SPT Okay, I only got 4 in the - 4-1/2 ounces for

SPT Turkey rice soup.

CDR Okay.

SPT Now for some tomaters [sic], huh?

CDR Yes, you and I both have tomatoes.

SPT Okay. Anything else I can reconstitute for you?

CDR I got some Juice, but I can do that while you are
looking for the tomatoes.

SPT You need any Juice done?

CDR No, I guess I got Just an orange up there. I'll


get it later.

CDR Yes.

SPT I got it.

SPT Okay.

SPT Tell you what, Jer .... if you like. How's that
for ... ? There's the ... piece of Velcro in

CDR How about along the hatch?

SPT ...

CDR No, it - it affects the water.

SPT Oh.

CDR Greatly.

SPT ... water that stuff down.

CDR ... This here's Carr's dumb exercises.

SPT ... That was a dumb exercise of the first order.

321 00 56 35 SPT Well, in a couple of days I know it will show up.


This ... is going to get pretty tiresome with my
finger.
8_

CDR Shoot, Ed.

SPT I_1_y, I tucked it right in m_ little - little


pouch here ... I doubt if I can find it. Let me
have that trash bag, and I'll throw all my -

B21 00 57 05 SPT ... in here .... cut yourself on that ...

CDR ...

SPT ...

321 00 58 27 SPT Inversion wopped it off at the ... location.

CDR ... disappeared, Ed, when we had the frapping


burn.

SPT Yes, it probably got planted down there somewhere.

B21 00 59 00 SPT Dear old dumb ship. Bill, I hate to ask this -
this of you, but can I use your spoon? Tell me
where it is. Okay. I should of took -

SPT Man, look at them clouders.

321 01 O1 17 CDR Hand me the towel, please, Ed.

SPT All right, if I can find the mother. Oh, here


it is.

CDR Just want to have it ready.

SPT ... my real neat idea of putting my can of toma-


toes up there, didn't - was not such a thrilling
one, after all.

CDR Didn't work, huh?

B21 01 01 31 SPT Well, that's what my tomatoes are now coming to


because they have vanished on me.

CDR Oh heck'

SPT Oh, here they are.

CDR Where did I put mine? Oh, in my pocket.


321 01 01 50 SPT There you go ....

CDR Hand me your Juice and I'll reconstitute it for


you.

i SPT Oh, okay. Thank you, Jer. Now I guess I figure


out - how in the heck do you open this thing?
Where do you cut? Right above - right on that
black line there?

321 01 02 14 CDR Yes, that's what it's for.

SPT Cut here.

PLT ...

321 01 17 35 Wait, here's another pair. We'll give this a whirl.


86

SPT Darn pills; got to tap the darn things up. Take
more wrappers off the darn thing. Makes no sense
messing around with this stuff.

other bag that's got the gloves in it.

SPT Oh, over there on top of A-9 or 7?

CDR Yes.

SPT Viola '

CDR Good.

you.

CDR That seams to stick to the membrane.

321 01 23 58 CDR Beautiful sunset.

321 01 24 41 SPT Is that the ...? No. The ground had figured all
the proper delta-Vc'S to put in there?

CDR Uh-huh.

SPT Yes, ... They figured it on - based on a bias of


0.02; 2 degrees per second squared.

321 01 25 12 SPT Man, I can't get over that. It was one heck of
a lift-off. Boy, I 'ii tell you. You really knew
something happened back there.

321 01 27 26 SPT The trouble with these little frapping germicide


pills is from now on you get to play games in
trying to get Just one of them out of there.
You've got to take the cover off of it. Oh' -

SPT You get that one. I -

t PLT Handle one what?

SPT Medication.

PLT No. I probably could ...

SPT Let's see. Where are they, Bill, and I'll get
it for you.

CDR You probably ought to keep on chnn_ing them down.

SPT Because that's what they're going to tell us.


Stay ahead of them. Where are they, Bill, and
I'll get it. Are they in your coat?

PLT ...

SPT ... is something to be desired.

PLT Well, let's see ...

SPT Here, let me take that. Put this in the little


black bag here.

PLT ...

321 Ol hl 57 CDR I know why it is you don't feel well. It's he-
cause you didn't get your strawberries today.
That's it. That's got to be the reason.

SPT Did you get very much sleep last night, Bill?

PLT Not a whole lot. I got ...

here? ... get you another U - -

PLT ... glycol.

SPT Pardon?

PLT ...

321 01 43 02 SPT No, no. The clamp just goes on the condom.

PLT That's what I thought.

SPT The hose leaks?

PLT ...

SPT Oh, for crying out loud. Now let me see. Do


we have any tape? That - Why don't you take
that tape I put up there? See it up there, Jer?
No, it's on the hatch. Oh. Oh, yes. Okay,
why don't you just grab that, and I'll wrap it
around it. Okay, Bill, why don't you Just hand
me that dub? Let's see; where is it leaking?
Jer - Bill, right at the end here?

PLT Yes....

SPT Hold on; I'll get you another UCTA, Bill, in


case you might need it.

CDR ... another pro/eph for him?

321 O1 44 26 SPT No, I didn't yet.

CDR Okay.

SPT I think he was going to try and find it in his


pocket there, at the bottom. I'm not sure whether
he was able to do that or not.

321 O1 44 47 SPT I am the keeper of the trashy bag. Bill, here's


another one. You might just want to leave it -
either put it on or - I've been Just leaving one
up here. I have to tend to kind of urinating
into it when I need it. Let me give you another
clamp though; in case you decide to go that way.
91

You got one? Okay, there you are. I'ii take


that if you like.

CDR Just a minute, Ed.

r SPT Okay.

321 01 45 _2 CDR Just toss the bag over this way, and I'll do it.

PLT ... bag.

SPT Yes, you get a new one of those every time, need
it or not. Heck, I wonder if this can be used.
I don't know - it's for something.

PLT ...

SPT No, we don't need that coming back. Why don't


I toss it over here in bag A? Make a nice
restraint.

CDR You better get another pro/eph in you right away,


Bill. Give it a chance to work on you.

PLT Okay.

SPT Are they in your pocket, Bill?

PLT No, I put them back there in ...

321 01 46 30 SPT Hold on; let us -

CDR Let us get it, Bill. Just lie - lie quiet.

SPT Keep very nice and still. Don't move your head
at all.

shoulder?

SPT At] right, I'll get it.

321 01 h6 56 CDR Yes.

92

CDR All right.

321 01 47 33 SPT Here you are, Bill.

SPT Sit tight ...

CDR Okay.

SPT Put this bag away.

321 01 48 12 SPT Gosh, it's hard to believe there's a big old


heavy Nikon in there.

CDR Yes, it sure is.

SPT Okay.

321 01 52 17 CDR Bill, do you have another fecal/vomitus bag if


you need it?

PLT I don't have one handy.

CDR Tell you what; let me - -

SPT I've got one right here. Okay, let me get some
tissues handy, too.

321 01 52 31 CDR I'm not saying I think you look like you need it.
I Just - it Just occurred to me that if you have
a recurrence, you ought to have something handy.

PLT Yes.

SPT Is that mine floating round?

CDR Yes.

SPT Doggone it.

321 01 52 57 CDR It gets me that there's no Velcro.

SPT ...

SPT Here, Bill, I have the waste up in here.

PLT ...

SPT There we go. Put a little bit there.


93

CDR What?

SPT Want us to put this up in here?

321 01 54 45 CDR Where's the bag? Down there?

SPT Yes. Here, you want to move it up here; kind of


centrally located. That's fine ... getting away.

321 01 55 20 SPT Where; oh where, is Earth?

CDR Is what?

SPT Earth.

CDR Oh. It's behind you. It's out that way.

321 01 55 42 CDR There it is. Better be careful. I'll end up


filling my mike here with butterscotch.

SPT Yes.

321 01 57 47 CDR You want me to bag up your stuff?

SPT Sure.

CDR ...

SPT You want me ...?

321 01 59 36 CDR Yes. There you are. I Just have one.

CDR No, that's yours. I got mine in my pocket.

SPT ...

SPT I'm up here with a ... of pencils so I can hold


on.

321 02 00 25 SPT Darn, I wish this had some - -

CDR Velcro?

SPT - - Velcro on it. It would be nice. Another


nice gesture of interest.
94

CDR Think they Just got into such a flap at the last
there, they didn't - forgot all those good things.

321 02 02 48 SPT I feel like I've been here before? Maybe you ...
movi e.

321 02 03 02 CDR Boy, I sure don't.

SPT Well, the sen - sensations are all different.


All mechanical things that happen, I think we've
all got a pretty good feel for it by just seeing
all the pictures of it. Yuck.

321 02 04 15 CDR Oh, shoot. Look at that - the GMT.

SPT ... problems? What happened there, I wonder.

CDR Oh, it doesn't change at 24.

SPT Oh.

B21 02 04 35 CDR Darn it. We got a ... Well, let's see. It's
02:04 now.

SPT Hey, look; let me go down there and yell at you,


and we'll get that mission timer, crank it to
the right value, and then we'll come back and
set this one.

CDR All right. Finish your dinner first. We're in


no hurry.

SPT Boy, that's hydrogen - I guess it is - in that


gas. Turn that water in ...

321 02 05 33 CDR Yes, I've already got it starting to grumble at


me in the back side.

SPT If I eat one of those things, Jer, I'm sure I'll


get sick. I guess I Just about devoured every-
thing I can today .... my little orange ...

SPT Gosh darn it .... drink up ...

321 02 07 08 CDR Yes, I got one in my pocket and two I can't


drink. They gave me two coffees, three oranges,
and a tea today.
_ 95

SPT You want a strap around you, Bill?

PLT ...

321 02 l0 08 SPT I know one thing. If I keep using roll ons [?]
i I won't have any more temperature left.

CDR (Laughter)

CDR Okay, that's going to be all I can put into this


one. Want to hand me one of those two? Well,
I'll try it. We can get three.

SPT Just hold on. No kidding, I am going ... off


o.o

CDR (Laughter)

SPT Hold on. I've just got to -

321 02 l0 50 CDR I'll go on down in the black hole of Calcutta


here. I've got to get another UTCA out. How
_uy of these do we have?

SPT I only saw - -

CDR Three a piece?

SPT I only saw in that - that bag; there was only


one extra. One for each guy, but they may be
in another bag, another pile of it. Hold on,
I'll get you a ... in Just a moment.

CDR All right.

321 02 ll 42 CDR I wonder how many tissues we have.

SPT That is it; right there.

SPT Yes, I'd better go a little slow on these things.

B21 02 ll 51 CDR I think it'll - that should do it for today.


Okay. Can you move forward a little bit? Are
you - are you finished yet?

SPT All right. Yes, I am. I Just want to get this


tissue box back up here ....
96

CDR Okay.

321 02 12 21 SPT Oh, I've still got a lot of room left in that
thing.

CDR There's a piece of a tissue coming toward you.

SPT ... caught it. No, it Just blew down.

321 02 12 53 SPT There you go.

SPT I am afraid once we turn the ground on to - to


this thing, though, it Just -

CDR Well, I think at] we can say is that (clears


throat) - Bill took his pro/eph and that he's
taken another one. And we got him _mmobilized,
and we're doing - we're doing aSS the things we
have to do.

321 02 13 26 SPT I wonder if we can somehow reduce the severity


of it. Bill - -

CDR I'd Just say he doesn't feel like eating, r

SPT Just doesn't feel like eating.

CDR Chuck, you know, had - ate something and - and


lost it; so he decided Just not to eat anymore.
And he's Just going to remain _mmobile until he
feels like doing something. And we're going to
hit him with pro/eph every 4 hours.

SPT That Just land? I wonder what it is?

321 02 13 51 SPT Let's see - we're coming up on Hawaii; so that


could be Australia. And we're due over Hawaii
in about 15 or 20 minutes.

CDR Sure is pretty.

SPT Lots of good plume patterns for rivers going


into the ocean. Lots of good cloud streets.

321 02 lh 41 CDR Sure wish I had that camera out. That'd be a


perfect shot.
r
f 97

321 02 14 53 CDB Where is that black bag? Is that in here?

SPT It's right to your left there, Jer; right there.

CDR Oh, there it is right there. I thought it was


I inside another bag.

321 02 15 02 SPT Yes, it was originally, but couldn't start putting


it all in there until ... and others in there.

321 02 16 45 CDR By golly, I think that UCTA is good for another


one, but I don't think I'll wear it.

SPT It does kind of give you that full feeling


around the middle.

CREW (Whistling)

321 02 19 28 SPT Now I know what I could be doing that would


be constructive.

CDR What's that?


f-

SPT Get out my plant.

CDR Hey, here's that little screw.

321 02 19 44 SPT Oh, yes. It came off - -

CDR Floating by.

SPT Oh, I guess it - I think it came off of there.


I had a little screw in there.

321 02 19 51 CDR Oh, it's in there?

SPT Yes. Hey, is this the U - UCTA corner here?

CDR Yes, it looked like a good place and there's


Velcro up in there.

321 02 20 05 CDR Let's see. As long as you're right there, Ed,


would you get out the Stowage Book? I am going
to browse a little more. I think we need to get
some wet-wipes out. We're going to be handling
urine and food. That's not too terribly sanitary.
98

321 02 20 24 SPT Stowage Book?

CDR Yes.

SPT ...

CDR Very good.

SPT Where in the heck were those plants stowed now?


As I recall -

CDR I thought they were over - Were they in U-l?

SPT U-l, I believe. Yes.

321 02 21 06 CDR I put the tissues in U-2, Ed.

SPT Okay.

CDR They're a little handier there, and they don't get


knocked around as much. I mean they're not as
handy, but they don't get knocked around as much.

321 02 21 h8 SPT There's ...

321 02 23 00 SPT I think I'm a little ...

321 02 23 07 CDR Hey, Bill, there's some clothing straps back


here. Would you like a strap to put around your
head to strap you down?

PLT Yes.

CDR You feeling bad again?

PLT No, I actually feel pretty good right now ....

321 02 23 55 CDR Well, eating helped, Bill. And if you ever get
to the point where you think you can, that might
get you out of it. But I guess maybe we tried
to get you to do it too soon. All my fullness
in my head is already feeling a whole lot better.

SPT See that?

CDR The Stowage Book?


99

321 02 24 21 SPT How many of tham?

CDR Oh, I think he said he put a half a dozen in there


or something like that.

SPT Well, they ought to go at some Judicious location.

321 02 24 28 SPT I'm watching the plants there, Jer.

CDR Where are they?

SPT Right there.

CDR Oh.

321 02 24 40 CDR Well, Bill, I think we better tell the truth


tonight.

PLT ...

CDR Because we're going to have a fecal/vomitus bag


to turn in, although I guess we could throw that
down the trash airlock and forget the whole thing
-_ and just say, "Bill doesn't feel well, and he's
not eating. We got him immobilized with pro/eph."

SPT Could do that. I think all the managers would


be hap - would be happy.

321 02 25 09 CDR Well, let's do that then. We won't mention the


barf; we'll Just throw that down the trash air-
lock. I doubt if you threw up any more than
what you've taken in - in what you took in in
Just a few seconds - a few minutes earlier.

SPT They're not going to be able to keep track of


that. Let's do that, because they seem to make
a big distinction between the - whether you
throw up or not.

CDR Yes.

321 02 25 35 SPT It's small, as the distinction in reality really


is. So it's Just between you, me, and the couch.

SPT You know darn well that every manager at NASA


would probably, under his breath, want us to do
that.
f
100

321 02 27 03 SPT 75 percent left of PSM. And delta 87, 90, 90,
85. You still got a little bit of gas left.

CDR Good. The more, the merrier.

321 02 27 43 CDR See that island down there?

SPT Oh, yes, wet-wipes. Going to try and find some


wet-wipes.

CDR Yes, that's what I am trying to do.

321 02 27 58 SPT Medical conference over Hawaii. Don't know what


island that is. Now I know why the commander's
on the left-hand side. Get all the good views.

CDR Does that help, Bill? Good.

321 02 28 h8 CDR Oh, heck, I hate to even look.

SPT Where is it?

321 02 28 54 CDR I haven't found any yet. I was just going to say
I hate to even look in - -

SPT Oh.

CDR - - any of these.

SPT There's a good place for those little fellows.

CDR Hey, yes.

321 02 29 26 SPT Old sweaty-pa]m time here, Jer. When I looked


over at the fierce look of determination on the
Jerry Cart morale - -

CDR Boy, I tell you (laughter). I was already patting


myself on the back because I slithered in there
and got it the first time. And then the doggone
thing backed out on me, and I just about died.

SPT (Laughter)

CDR However, I remember all the problems you had and


I said, "Well, heck, we ain't anywhere near that
far yet." I don't see wet-wipes here anywhere.
i01

321 02 30 02 SPT Well, tell you what. Let's take a towel and put
lots of water on it and try and clean up things
as I can. I think things are getting a little
sticky already.

CDR Yes.

SPT Let's see, do we have another towel besides that


one we've been using?

321 02 30 43 CDR I am sure we do. They're all over the place.

SPT ...

CDR You might look in - over here in L-2. I'll bet -


or that's L-3.

SPT L-3, I kind of hate to look in there because I


know we got all kinds of food, and I hate to
delve into there and try to -

321 02 31 00 CDR Where did you get that towel you used?

f- SPT That had the camera, I think, packed.

CDR Oh, that 's right.

SPT Ask and ye shall receive.

SPT We got lots of towels in here.

CDR Good.

CDR Uh-oh, I believe they're here.

321 02 31 33 CDR I think I almost heard a Quindar.

SPT We got signal strength?

CDR No, we don't have. I'm hearing things. Besides,


we don't hear the Quindar anyway.

SPT No, Okay, you want a little hot _zater on here?

f_
102

CDR Yes, that would be good.

SPT Okay. I'll try to make one end of it hot and the
other dry.

SPT Let me get another one here.

321 02 32 22 SPT Okay. You got anything special you would like to
take care of?

321 02 32 25 CDR My hands more than anything else and a spoon. Oh,
that is nice hot water. Okay. I can use this
corner to wipe my hands on. The other corner is
free.

SPT Okay.

CDR I think I am going to ask them to tell us where -


if there's any wet-wipes here, because we can't
find them in the stowage list.

321 02 33 i0 SPT What does that one do? ... cabin fans come on?

CDR Yes,...

CDR That 's pretty.

SPT Think I might have a look in there.

SPT Let's see. That's the conclusion of today, I


guess, huh?

321 02 34 46 CDR Lot of stratus right down on the water.

SPT Yes .... good ... cells down there .... cells

CDR ... cells, yes.

CDR Not too well formed though; not very classic.

SPT No, I saw a nice small patch of them, but there


weren 't that many.

321 02 35 21 SPT You know the horizon is a - When you're first


coming from the black, you see a - a very light
blue and then a dark blue and then light blue
again?
103

CDR Yes.

SI_2 It 's pretty.

CDR I wonder what that is?

SPT Yes, I sure don't know.

CDR Could that be the ozone layer maybe?

SPT I don't know. Ozone's not this high.

CDR Well, big mother, you're home for 85 days. How


amazing' When I was a little kid, I never dreamed
anything like this could ever happen.

321 02 36 08 SPT Yes. Never dreamed it could happen to anybody -


more or less, me.

CDR Yes.

CDR Really are lucky; you know that? I think they're


getting set to whisper in our ear here.

321 02 36 35 SPT Yes. Let's Just take a very cheerful attitude


with this guy. Make him think that everything
is hunky-dory except for one small problem.

CDR Ought to say, "Hello, doctor ..." (laughter).

CDR Boy, look at that real thick stratus there.

321 02 37 55 CDR Hand me the towel, please, Ed?

SPT Yes. See if I can find the mother. Oh, here


it is.

CDR It's right here.

SPT Oh, oh, right here. This is what they're talking


about, huh?

CDR Yes. There's the other one. And here's one up


here that catches a lot of dust - cabin fan return.

SPT Oh, yes. There are only a few little goodies in


there.

CDR I'm going to have to round up the chlorination


kit. It's packed in all sorts of crazy places.

SPT Oh, boy. Well, I'll help you as soon as I get


that one ... over here.

321 03 17 _2 CDR Well, what's our potable water situation? I'll


take a look over there. Waste water is nearly
zero. Potable water is 30 percent.

SPT That's good; it's coming up. And the old fuel
cells are doing their stuff.

321 03 19 51 CDR Oh, cripe! I'm never going to find it.

SPT Okay, Jer, would you verify a few things over


there for me?

CDR Sure.

CDR Yes.

SPT Is that one green?


105

CDR Then a green. That one up there is in the yellow.

321 03 20 51 SPT Which is CLOSED. All right.

CDR In fact, you could go up and see what the delta-P


meter's reading. It should be reading 03.45.

321 03 21 04 SPT That's what it's reading.

CDR Good show. It 's tight.

SPT I'll tell you what.

SPT ... delta-P.

321 12 06 21 SPT Maybe I can get it while I'm figuring it out here,
hold on. Then again, maybe I can't.

321 12 06 32 CDR Look at all those nice cloud streets. I wonder


where we are? I've not seen any land in quite a
little while. There's a lot over here.

CDR Oh, yes, maybe that is land underneath there.


No, no definition to it.

SPT Boy, you look out this sextant, and you know
you' re really moving.

CDR Here you are.

SPT Oh, yes, we're over land in ...

down here is still keeping perfect time.

CDR Yes, I heard it last night.

SPT Think you can shut it off?

CDR Yes, I know.

SPT You want to turn it off?

CDR It doesn't matter to me. Yes, I guess it wouldn't


hurt to; we don't really need it.

321 12 08 54 SPT Hey, Jer, there's a lot of gas in here.

CDR Yes, it sure causes suffering later.

PLT ...

SPT Boy, I'm glad no one's a smoker.

321 12 09 23 CDR Here you go, Ed. I put a little Velero on them.

SPT Huh? You rip it off the other one?

CDR Yes.

SPT Hey, that's a good idea. We ought to start doing


that. We might be able to use those little
fellows

CDR Not supposed to use them for anything else. Be-


cause it's not that fireproof Velcro. But I
figure they're fair game on the same thing.

321 12 i0 53 SPT Jer?

CDR Oh, yes.

CDR 0h, yes ....

SPT Oh, yes! Look at that definition.

SPT Got one there for yourself,Jer?

other side.

SPT Okay.

321 12 18 31 CDR I forgot about this thing. It's got to go back

Don't reconstitute Bill's sauage then, Ed.

SPT Okay.

PLT ...

321 12 29 lh CDR Okay. Is it in RECORD, or can you tell?

PLT Yes.

321 12 29 _l CDR Okay, Houston. Is the tape recorder x-_nning


on RECORD? I'm ready to record our PRO values.

CC ...

CDR Okay.

CDR This is the CDR for tape recorder. The PRD

23006; for the PLT, 38001.

321 12 30 32 CDR Bill, you want to put that in the pocket? Here,
Ed. It's in your favorite pocket.
i12 -_

321 12 31 52 CDR Bill, you want to turn off that tape recorder?
Oh, okay.

CDR Remember, guys, today the first - first void of


the day goes in the UCTA. And the next void
goes in today's bag.

SPT Today's bag .... we got another UCTA bag stowed


underneath there somewhere?

CDR Yes, there's more in A-6, underneath me.

SPT Okay.

CDR So if you haven't urinated yet this morning, save


it for the old bag. And the rest of the day's
urinations go in the - go in the new bag.

SPT All right.

CDR In fact, we ought to get that done pretty quick,


I guess.

SPT May I have the duty scissors there, please, Jer?

CDB All right.

321 12 34 31 SPT 3-1/2 ounces of hot water. I'll give you 3, Jer.

CDR Okay.

CDR You got any ... so far on your food?

SPT Let's see. No, it's just 7 in there rather than


8; that's grapefruit - everybody's grapefruit
drink.

CDR All right. So that's minus 0.5 for everybody there.

321 12 34 54 SPT No, I think they called for 8, didn't they?


... or was it?

CDH No, it calls for 7-1/2, and you said you only
got seven clicks in? That means you're short
half an ounce.

SPT Yes.

CDR I'll put a minus 0.5 next to everybody's grape-


fruit. .-_
i13

321 12 35 27 CDR And you say only 3 in the sausage?

SPT Gosh darn it. Hold on. 1-i/2 - I put - No. I'm
sorry, Jer, ... I can't read the darn thing on
the bottom, but I thought it said 2-1/2. But I
think it might be 1-1/2.

CDR That's all right. You're not supposed to eat


sausage today anyway.

SPT Oh, that's right .... 1-1/2. I gave you 2,


unfortunately.

CDR I think it says i-1/2.

SPT Well, Jer, what does the other one say? Can you
read that?

CDR Yes, I'll have to figure it out here.

SPT I think you might have a slightly wet sausage.


Yes, I put Bill's back over here. I'll take a
look at it.

321 12 36 37 SPT i-1/2, yes.

CDR Okay.

SPT Well, you' re plus a half, Jer.

CDR That - that evens me out then; that's okay.

SPT It probably won't be okay when you go to eat it.

CDR I'll get used to that.

CDR Not a bit of Velcro in sight, dagnabit.

SPT Let's see; where is the ... can?

CDR Right chere [sic].

SPT No, that's not it.

CDR I'll find a place to put this, and I'll be right


with you. Boy, without Velcro you're really stuck.
There. In fact, if you get *** you're kind of full.
114

SPT That it is.

PLT ...

321 12 40 22 CDR Well, let's see. Let me Just continue looking


at the postsleep checklist while Ed's fixing
breakfast there.

321 12 40 54 CDR Yes, Story's the CAP COMM.

SPT I'd say there is a little gas in this water.


Son of a gun.

CDR What's your delta on your eggs? Any?

SPT No. It calls for 3, and that's what I put in


there. But, man, it looks like I've got egg soup.

CDR I hope you saved your little Yelcro patch off


your grapefruit drink before you threw it away.

SPT Yes, I haven't thrown it out yet.

CDR Hey, good. Why don't you hand me the Velcro off
of them? I'll stow them along here so that we
can use them on other - other food containers.

321 12 41 57 SPT I'm taking off my Velcro right here. You can
have it.

CDR There's nothing left but lemonade and a beverage -


your beverage.

SPT I've already had my upper this morning. I have


some tea. I'm going to be ricocheting off the
walls.

CDR Yes, we'd better get that void into that bag
before we eat anything.

321 12 h2 3h CDR Now that we've got breakfast ready, we don't want
to screw up any more medical data; so I'll go
ahead and pee in my morning void. Secure the
buttons on that thing.

SPT Jer, you got a place to keep that thing?


115

CDR Yes, I'm sticking them on the frame of the window


there. I'm cutting them in half to get double
use out of them.

SPT Oh, okay. I 'll do that.

CDR Bill, do you have your UCTA?

PLT Yes, I have it ...

321 12 42 58 CDR Okay. Why don't you finish using it, let me have
it, and I'll put it away in the black bag and
issue you a new one. Actually, we're supposed to
be using urine bags today. Guess I better figure
out where they're stowed and find them.

321 12 43 17 SPT Tell you what - -

CDR I think once we urinate, we won't need them for


a while. We'll find them after breakfast.

SPT Have any drinks in here that need made up for


this morning?

CDR Yes, there's two coffees and a tea and three


lemonades.

SPT Okay, anybody want a lemonade or a - -

CDR I - I think I'll stand pat for a while.

SPT Yes, I think I will too on that. Where - Oh,


there they are. Come on, fellows. Man, I tell
you I couldn't be happier than a clam. Great.
Looking forward to breaking into that workshop
and getting the show on the road.

B21 12 44 07 SPT Do you want any coffee, Jer?

CDR Yes, I'll have some coffee, I think. I'll save


the lemonade for midmorning.

CDR Hurrah. I found it the first time.

SPT ...

SPT Boy, you know, I'm still thinking about that lift-
off. That was - that was a rip-snorter, wasn't
ll6

it? That lift-off. It's like sitting on a -


being in the top story of a twenty-story building
and having the first floor explode.

321 12 45 l0 SPT Instead of crumbling down, you're going up. That's


right.

CDR I was surprised how fast we started feeling g's.

SPT I thought it was going to be quite a little while,


but, boy, I could start to feel that at - after
about the first 30 seconds. After I got that
VERB 82 in, I noticed that I was sinking back a
little bit.

CDR Yes, but you know the g level just kept going all
the way up until we got se - to staging.

SPT You know that thrust-to-weight ratio .... in the


beginning I was figuring it out. It 's like 1.09 ;
1. 093. That 's relatively low.

CDR Yes, it doesn't take long for them to begin to


change.

SPT I can tell I'm going in a hurry.

321 12 46 31 SPT Would you like my contribution to science, Jer,


in my UCTA?

CDR Yes.

SPT Okay.

CDR Take care of your morning void there and get it


put away.

SPT ... up there.

321 12 47 46 SPT No, that's not right. That's ... Oh, I think I'm
going to need another tissue.

CDR Another tissue. Oh, the tissues are in U-2.

SPT Oh, they're back there, huh?

CDR Yes.
_, 117

SPT Now where is it?

CDR They're about where my head is.

SPT There we go.

321 12 48 52 SPT Need a tissue or anything, Jer?

CDR I think I've still got one left from last night.

SPT That's what I thought.

CDR All righty, I'll take another one. Might Just


as well carry a spare all the time.

SPT Is that a big enough one?

CDR Yes. That's the same size as my other one.

SPT After tucking my tissue in there last night, I


found out that I didn't get as much in my UCTA
as I thought or it leaks or that it went back
up into the tissue. Man, did it ever.

CDR Oh, man.

SPT It is wick - -

CDR Wicking action.

SPT Curses ' ... in there. Shoot'

CDR It's a messy business indeed.

SPT Be glad when we get in to the workshop and get


that system going.

B21 12 50 09 SPT The whole darn thing is backing out. The whole
gosh darn thing is leaking.

CDR Just blow on it, Ed. That will push it back in.

SPT Gosh darn it'

CDR You need another UCTA? No, we don't have any


more.

SPT No, I'll try to -


i18

321 12 50 43 CDR Well, opening that black bag ought to be a dinner


spoiler.

321 12 51 01 CDR You all through, Bill?

PLT ...

CDR I find the best way is just take the darn thing
off and hold it up straight. It's easier to go
into.

SPT I think ... and ... wanted this thing. I'll try
and move it down there, somewhere in the middle.

CDR Okay. You got the trash bag?

321 12 51 19 SPT I hope so....

SPT Need any more tissues, anyone?

SPT Come on ... Here we are.

CREW Excuse me ...

SPT What ... we work with?

CDB ...

SPT I can't remember.

321 12 52 57 CDR Any other UCTAs ready to stow?

SPT All right, in a minute. What?

PLT ...

SPT Okay.

321 12 53 05 CDR All right, just hand it to me when you're through.

321 12 55 02 CDR Yes, I'll move the black bag over here.

SPT What? Okay.

CDR Got it. All right, ...

PLT ...
_ 119

SPT You're going to find it's kind of hard to take


the pain when you miss with the clamp. Sure lets
you know you're alive.

SPT Okay, Jer, little black bag ready for - -

SPT Oh, yes!

SPT - - another friendly face.

CDR I hope that's all it's going to take because


it's getting full. You ready?

SPT Roger.

CDR Hold your nose.

SPT Go. I'm going to start ... up a little now.

CDR ...

321 12 57 38 CDR Yes, we got to use the workshop bags today. Yes,
we'll locate those after breakfast.

PLT ...

CDR Yes, really, the towel would be better.

SPT Yes, I think you're better with a towel. Let's


see; where did I say I'd found a whole pile of
towels?

321 12 58 08 CDR Right here. Let's Just mark this one up. I'll
put an X on the end we are going to use for
cleaning up your hands after urination, and the
other end of the towel -

SPT There were some more towels right in back of


us somewhere here. You know last night I kind of
slept Just like this - kind of floating.

CDR Yes.

SPT ... back and forth between the - the hatch and
the chair. The couch here.

CDR How did you sleep?

F
J

120

321 12 58 37 SPT Pretty well until I - I guess I woke up about -


I'ii be darned if I know. I think I remember
it was 2 or 3 hours before we were supposed to
be getting up here. Then, I was kind of half -
half awake from there on ... Then for the last
half hour, I was looking out the telescope.

CDR I guess I slept - I must have got 50 percent


efficiency out of that sleep. I was sleeping
for half hour, three quarters of an hour; then
awake for 5-10 minutes; then back again.

SPT I dropped off pretty well at the beginning there.

CDR I think those beds are going to be nice with


those big bellybands on them, because that's
sure what made me sleep better last night -
is when I grabbed a couple of cargo straps and
strapped myself down to the locker. Then I
felt like I was being pushed up against something,
and I slept a longer stretch at a time.

PLT ...

321 12 59 42 CDR How about your audio tone? Okay, We're not
reading you at all. We're not reading you on
intercom at all. Are you hearing us? ...

SPT ...

CDR Now try.

321 12 59 56 PLT Oh, yes, it's just ...

CDR Okay.

SPT Let's see now; ... coffee.

CDR Yes, I decided I was going to have coffee, and


I'll hold my lemonade until later.

SPT That's day 4. How'd we ever get day 4?

PLT What? Okay, we're coming up AOS. It's ...?

321 13 00 16 SPT Is that all?


121

CDR Is this day h, too? These don't even have labels


on them.

SPT Oh, shoot.

CDR Well, the heck with them; coffee's coffee. Bill,


you don't want any coffee, do you? Or would you
like some?

PLT No, not right now. I think I'll hold off awhile.

CDR Okay.

SPT Okay.

PLT I--

SPT I think I'Ii have some tea. You want some coffee?

CDR Yes, I'll have coffee and sugar.. This is black


coffee, Bill.

PLT Good gosh....

CDR Day 4; that's right. I'm sure I can find some.

321 13 00 51 PLT Makes me feel a little better. I don't know if


I'm any cleaner.

SPT Yes.

SPT Now let me see_ I've got to figure out - there


it is.

mother down. I'm not sure what al1 those cute
little snaps are for. Could you put your hand on
that so it doesn't ...? ... - while I go get the
straps ...

CDR Okay, Bill, have you - Let's see what all you've
_ doneso farhere.

321 i_ 12 08 PLT I'm getting ready - As soon as you all open the
hatch. See all I had to do was dry out the evap-
orator and start a battery charge - -

CDR Yes.

PLT - - and we've already done that.

CDR Okay, so your next step then is the suit circuit


activation?

PLT That 's deactivation.

321 14 12 23 CDR Yes, and I'll - I'll go ahead and get the hatch
open.

SPT I'ii be right with you, Jer.

CDR Okay, no big thing.

PLT I do it after you - -

CDR Okay.
PLT - - open the hatch.

SPT Can you put this thing down anywhere over there,
Jer - Bill? ...

CDR ...

PLT I've got the wrong strap.

SPT Well, ... they're all that way. Here, hook this
up some .... something ... way they've got one
special location where everything goes.

PLT Yes.

SPT ...

321 14 13 03 CDR Okay, we've got minus 0.1 of a pound on the


DELTA-P meter here .... what does that ...

PLT Okay, I'm going to put it on a rather fragile


range here. It won't hurt anything but load it
dow-2.

CDR I see. Minus 0.1, I think, means we're low.

PLT Yes, let me read the note on that too.

CDR Minus means we're on the low side, doesn't it?

PLT That's the way I understand it.

CDB All right, here goes the PRESS EQUALIZATION


VALVE, OPEN.

SPT Watch our cabin pressure, Bill.

CDR Yes, it's coming into us.

321 14 13 47 SPT Cabin pressure going up?

PLT I don't see it going up; I'm watching it. I did


see it go up a little bit.

321 14 14 13 CDR Okay, it's open. DELTA-P is now zero.


145

PLT "Watch out for debris," it says. "Release


handle safety trigger - life and rotate 90
degrees toward hatch."

CDR Done.

PLT "Caution: Small delta-P may exist across hatch.


Release and grip handle securely when opening
hatch. Release handle to OPEN - to stop."

CDR Okay.

PLT Watch your knuckles when you do that.

CDR Here's your book, Ed.

PLT I'll take it.

SPT Okay .... my eyeballs ...

321 14 15 01 CDR Okay. It's open.

PLT Okay. Push hatch open to detent lock.

CDR It looks just like the simulator, guys. Push


open to detent, huh?

CREW ...

PLT Yes, you know, it has that little ratchet latch.

CDR Okay.

PLT All righty. And on panel lO1, which is a little


switch panel, interior lights on, and it should
give you four lights in the MDA.

321 l_ 15 40 CDR That's right. Just inside here, isn't it?

PLT Yes.

CDR Let's see. I need a little more umbilical here.

PLT You're going - I'm not sure you can even make it.
Let me try and give you some more.

CDR Oh, man. Soon as I get the lights on, you guys
got to come up and look at this.
146

SPT Okay.

CDR It's purty [sic].

CDR It is nice and cool too.

SPT ... find someplace to put this blivet. Well,

lights, turn on. Okay, you got those, inspect


MDA. Okay ... - -

CDR Give me my checklist, and I'll get started here.

SPT Okay, now we also got that frapping ... Is that


included in this thing?

CDR I don't see how we can; we don't have a camera


that works. I'd have to go in and get a lens to
go with it.

SPT No ... that camera up there? A11 you got to do


is go over and turn that camera on, and it's set
for us to come in.

321 lh 17 29 CDR Oh, okay.

SPT Remember, that 's what ...

CDR Yes.

SPT Apparently they have not put that in the check-


listbecauseI don'tsee it.

CDR All right.

321 14 17 _ SPT Why don't we get that done, and then we can press
on with the rest of the - Why don't we Just go on
off headsets because otherwise we'll never be
able to move in and get the drogue and probe and
all that stuff, too.

CDR All right. Let me go back and just recap every-


thing here and make sure we've done a] ] the things
we're supposed to do.

SPT Okay, dr°gue and probe - -

CDR Secondary glycol evap dryout, complete; probe


removal; drogue removal; bat B charge; you're
finished with that, Bill?

PLT Yes, but I'm recharging bat A.

CDR Okay. Suit circuit deactivation complete yet?


148

B21 14 18 19 PLT I'm getting in the process. Would you give me a


9 Delta inhibit?

CDR 9 Delta. Got it.

PLT Okay, SUIT COMPRESSORS are going OFF.

CDR Okay, we got to stow the probe and drogue now.


That comes in here. Let's see, are we AOS now?

CDR Yes, I suspect they decided not to do it. Yes.


Let me go off the headset and go on in ....
checklist ... All right, it ain't going to hurt.
We got - Let's see, when did they say the next
AOS is?

321 14 19"56 PLT 04 I thought he - Oh, heck, that can't be right.


14:19 - 20 now. He told me, and I didn't write
it down. I thought he said 04, but I - That
can't be right.

CDR Okay. Well, I'm going to go off the headset


here. Go down and turn on the television and the
VTR, and we'll record it whether they like it or
not. They got plenty of time to turn it off.

PLT Okay.

CDR Okay, here's what we're going to do while we got


a drogue and a probe to stow.

CDR Yes.

PLT Reroute suit hose to avoid hatch interference.

CDR ...

321 l_ 21 B4 SPT Save some looking for us.

PLT Yes, that's one of my jobs; I'm waiting until

TIME SKIP

322 04 34 01 SPT This is the SPT talking about some medical obser-
vations. They best be sent to Jerry Hordinsky,
over in the medical directorate. Today, Jerry was
Just about full speed al] day long. He had a
slight stomach awareness on occasion when - when
either maneuvering a lot and close to a mealtime -
That's before a meal. After a meal, he had no
problem. As soon as he would stop whatever he was
doing it would dissipate, and he could press right
on. Bill started slow, very cautious, and has
been gathering speed all day and is now Just about
100 percent. We expect that in the next 2 or 3
days we ought to be able to all carry a full work-
load. I've had no sensations whatsoever, in terms
of stomach awareness of any kind, and I have been
maneuvering an awful lot. The only thing I have
noticed is a slight discomfort from the feeling
_- of a full head. All of us have experienced a
fullness in the head, probably more so yesterday
than today.

322 0h 35 15 SPT We could feel it decreasing, or that is, at least


we've - our perception of it is decreasing.

322 04 35 21 SPT Our faces are puffed and slightly chubby and red,
resembling what you would see for someone hanging
upside down in one g, only it's not quite as pro-
nounced. We also have the feeling of a - a stuffy
nose which has been alluded to another place.
Along with the red face, we al] have slightly
bloodshot eyes. We expect it's from the same
reason; Just a higher blood pressure in the upper
extremities. But that's the only thing we can
attribute it to. We have not had any other eye
irritations that we can recall. We also have -
Each one of us experienced a little bit of sneez-
ing yesterday and today; not a large amount, but
certainly more than normal. The blood preesure,
which Jerry took on me, might not be 100-percent
accurate, as we had a tough - Jerry had a tough
time picking up the systole [sic] and diastole
[sic].
160 __..

322 04 36 33 SPT The - sound itself was very faint. And he could
not detect the onset or - or when it dissipated,
with great precision.

322 04 36 49 SPT We'll be talking to you some more tomorrow, Jerry.

322 04 37 05 SPT This is the SPT tal_ing about stowage. This best
go to FA0. For lack of a better place and not
seeing one called out, we stowed the M0171/73
black bag behind 553, the food freezer on the
floor. And we'll leave it there until we hear -
hear from you folks. We'll remember where it is.
Had it there during training and it seems natural.

Blood sample vials: CDR, 008; SPT, 075; PLT, 077.
The day of the year is written on each colored de-
cal on both the ASP and the blood sample vials.
There is some air in the SPT's blood sample. I had
to use two ASPs, that's A-S-P-s, to process the SPT's
blood. Finally the blood coagulated in the needle
and did not draw _mmediately into the ASP when I
first put it on, just a small amount. I thought
perhaps I hadn't drawn a vacuum, so I took it off,
tried it again, then checked the vacuum. And the
second time it worked, but I had to force a little
in there to break it loose, and then it went in
pretty well. As far as drawing blood, we've had
no problems with - with that. That's been a rela-
tively minor part of it. It's pretty much the same
as on the ground. The hemoglobin concentrations
follow: For the CDR, 16.0; SPT, 15.6; PLT, 16.6.
Urine specific gravities, and these are all for the

are no urine bags in D-404 as called out in the

aware of that, or are they banking on there being
some urine bags in there, because there aren't.

with the SMMD, and they're taped to the left-hand
wall. Food package 6 in the Activation Checklist
indicated that it should be in lor.ker 760. Locker
760's got an SMMD in it, and there's no way I'm
going to get food package number 6 into that
locker. I think probably the appropriate locker for
the food package is the locker 711, and that's
where I'm going to put it. Further in the Acti-
vation Checklist, the spice kit and the vitamins
_-- 163

were to have been put in locker 704. Well, there's


no room in locker 704 because it's I_,11 of partitions

323 02 12 39 SPT This is the SPT talking on the ED63 prep, page
6-i. Now first, let me give you a little history
of what light ED63 has seen. On day 320, that's
the day of launch, we had 3 hours of direct sun-
light on it in the co,_f_nd module. On 321, now,
they were brought down to the OWS, put in the
wardroom in their operational location. Now at
18:00 GMT, the lights were .on_ and then at 320 -
day 322, the lights were off at 05:00. Then
again this morning they came on at 14 - 13:00 GMT.
The l_m_nescence which I got keeping the spot-
meter sort of consistent across the page - better
than all the locations of the three vials, is 27
foot-lamberts.

323 02 13 49 SPT And I had to get that with a logarithmic inter-


polation.

323 02 28 49 CDR Tape recorder, this is the CDR at 02:30 G_T on


day 323. At 23:50 on day 322, I reported that I
was going to put the crispy bars, which is food
package number 6, into locker number 711. Well,
I found out they won't fit. So another change to

323 12 ii 19 SPT This is the SPT with the 133 log. Day of the
year, 333 [sic]; length of sleep, 6.7; it was
good; quality 4. The tests at the start of the
sleep period, which commenced at 05:19 - the tests
showed all electrodes good. Upon arising, C-1 was
fin]g; 0-1, 0-2, and C-2 were off. By pressing
them back into the skull, I could get them to come
back on. But apparently, the cap either was not
on tight enough or I had to use much more - use
more electrolyte than I did. So I'm not sure at
what time during the night we lost electrical sig-
nals. I'll be glad to give it another go tonight ;
Just let me know on an update. What I plan to do,
166

if we do do it tonight, is just put some more into


the - little bit more electrode into the elec-
trodes and then pull the cap tighter.

323 16 ii 05 SPT This is the SPT at 16:09. Subject is the SMM cal.
First one was - unit was done in the head. Start
time was 14:51, stop at 15:05, day of the year 323.
Picking uo on log in section 5. Temperature was
76 with the ambient thermometer and 78 read out on
the SMMD. The first sequence was done with zero
mass and as written in the checklist. First read-
ing was 1.96565. The remaining nine readings, which
I can give you now - only the last three digits will
be read. The first three digits remain the same;
that is, 1.96. Second one is 544; third, 602; three
[sic], 601; four [sic], 595; the sixth, 611; seventh,
611 too; eighth, 615; ninth, 591; and last, 576.
I also did a second zero-mass calibration. This
was done in the way which Bill Thornton, Rusty
Schweickart and myself talked about before flight.
And that is, the unit was not locked between each
reading or the RESET button was pushed, so that
during the total of l0 readings, the same oscilla-
167

tion was used. And, again, I'll Just give you the -
the last six numbers - the last three n,-,hers after
I give you the first one in total. 1.96551, 539,
590, 546, 589, 549, 603, 571, 592, 578. And Bill
Thornton can take a look at those and see whether
there's any advantage in doing it in that manner.

323 16 ll 25 SPT The next zero-mass cal was done on the SMMD unit
in the wardroom and day of the year 323; start time,
15:07; stop, 15:20. Temperature read 73 on the
ambient thermometer and 77 on the SMMD. Now the
zero-mass sequence, which was done in the nominal
mode as per checklist, reads as follows. I'll read
the first nnmber total and then only the last three
digits of the remainder. 1.955h6, 490, 536, 535,
547, 521, 511, 559, 559, 534.

323 16 12 37 SPT Now I'll read the second mode in which the zero cal
was done on the SSMD - the SMMD in the wardroom.
And, then again, the RESET button was pushed between
each reading, but the unit was not locked, so it
vibrated continuously. 1.955h7, 536, 5h6, 53h, 53h,
565, 54h, 550, 566, 564.

323 16 13 41 SPT The last zero-mass cal was done on the EMMD check-
list - or log, as on page 6. Crewmen acc_plished
the cal of the SPT; day of the year, 323; start
time, 15:35; stop 15:50. Temp, 81 on the ambient
thermometer and 8h as read off the _la4D. First
sequence, which was done in the nominal way, as -
as in the checklist, zero mass. Both belts were
tied as tight as possible and no oscillation of
the belt could be noted during the reading. And
I used no tape. CS_ay, the readings for the first
sequence follow. And I'll only read these last
two digits of 2 through 7 - or 2 through 10, as
those are the only ones that change. First,
2.69999, 82, 82, h6, 65, 87, 49, 73, 97, 63.

323 16 15 24 SPT The second sequence was also a zero-_mass cal,


done by not locking the unit between readings,
but only pushing the RESET button, in the same
manner as I Just discussed on the SS - the S_4D.
Again, only the last two digits of 2 through l0
will be read. First, 2.6999_, 90, 61, 86, 59,
168

40, 75, 61, 77, 58. That completes the readings


of the numbers for the zero-mass cal. Some addi-
tional information which you folds wanted on it:
the CDB, SPT and PLT, during all of the weighings
on the BMMD wear either socks, undershirt, and a
T-shirt; or undershorts and a T-shirt; or a full
union suit or a one-halfunion suit with a
T-shirt. And all of us also have our watch and
dosimeter with a short strap on. During all of
the runs whieh were Just made, the two SMMDs and
the BN_4D, the ergometer was not in use.

DAY324 (AM) 171

324 00 02 27 SPT The SPT, 00:02, talking on medical observations.


And this should go over to Jerry Hordinsky, the
medical director. We as] have noticea - too
much since we got here - a dryness of the skin
and certainly in the mouth. And a good part of
the dryness that we feel in the mouth is from the
medications which we've taken. We noticed that
on the ground, but, apparently, this atmosphere
up here really enhances that. One interesting
thing I've noticed in the effect of zero g - Well,
it's really an effect of body orientation on the
room you happen to be entering - that I can move
into a given room sideways or upside down and not
recognize it, or I would recognize it, but I
would not feel at home in it.

324 00 03 24 SPT But as soon as my body would rotate to the one-g


attitude, that's the attitude which I had in
working with - in the trainer for well over a
year now, then allof a sudden my mind would
flash and say, "Yes, I know where I am," but until
that time, why it would look like something en-
tirely different that what I had been working in.
P It's as thoughyour mind won't recognizethe -
the situation you're in until it sees it pretty
much in the old standard way. And as soon as you
get pretty close to the right orientation, then
all of a sudden, zap, you get these - transfor-
mation made in your mind that tells you exactly
where you are.

324 00 04 23 SPT I noticed this effect especially in traveling


from up in the MDA through the OWS forward area
and then finally coming down into the experiment
compartment on the lower deck. When I come in
there, everything looks sideways. And not until
I rotate and put myself in the same attitude as
I do in the one-g trainer, do I really recognize
and feel familiar.

324 00 04 49 SPT The lack of one-g has some odd effects; for ex-
ample, we've noticed it's very hard to tie your
shoes. You usually use one-g, believe it or not,
to pull yourself down.

324 00 05 06 SPT One thing I'm trying to do is to keep the calves


in shape. And two things there: Just move the

f--\
.f

172

triangles to the very tips of the shoes so that


I have to use _ calves more and whenever I'm
anchoring m_ feet in; and, also, I'm not tying
the top two laces on the shoe so that I don't get
the extra ankle support from them.

Because we have used the water dump line now for
the M092 dump - there's a water dump port that's
converted to the M092 dump - we're not able to use
that for evacuatingthe automaticsample proces-

syringes that we used yesterday, cleaned it up
and - to avoid having to use a syringe with anti-
coagulant in it. In the plasma cartridge for the
PLT samples, I'm afraid we've got some - It's not
a pure plasma. We did get some - some red cells
in there. And I'd like some words - words from
you folks, if you could, on how I can avoid this
thing. In other words, would it be from having
too much blood injected into the automatic sample

Then we had problems with DAC 02. It didn't
work; so I went back up and got DAC 01. I don't

We pointed out on air-to-ground the conflict between
the Activation Checklist and the Biomed Checklist.
We're told to go with the way the Activation said,
which is to put number 1 down at the ankle. When
we do this, though, it looks as though we're miss-
ing a good part of the thigh. That is, number 25
does not reach up to the top of the the thigh, mud
we suspect that's what you may want to be getting.
If so, let us know and we will be glad to alter
the procedures and take that into account.

324 20 46 57 SPT Again, this is the SPT with a general comment on


medical experiments. In general, I think we're
gaining speed and will be able to accomplish these
things with perhaps a little more accuracy and
a little more speed as we gain more familiarity.
One factor that is causing us to start off slow
is the relatively small amount of training and,
in some cases, no training that we have had on
some of the additional experiments. They're all
good things to be doing and we're glad to have
them on board, but bear with us because we haven't
had any training on some of them and very little
on others. Includes facial photos, IR photos,
limb measurement, blood flow, and stereo photos.
We'll try and keep you posted on how we're carry-
ing these things out. And if you have any ques-
tions, give us a call.

large air bubbles in the syringe? There were a
few days in which we had red-colored plasma.
One, day 323, was in the SPT's and 324 was in
the PLT's. In the first day -"that's 323 - SPT's,
I did notice some air bubbles in the syringe.
In the second day, for the PLT, I did not. Did
you force any blood into the ASP? I did not
on the PLT's, not noticeably; on the first one -
with the SPT's - I did. So I guess both of these
questions are answered positively for the first
day with the SPT's samples, day 323. Did you
f--.
182

notice any differences in the PLT and other Sam-


pies relative to these procedures? Well, yes,
this was - I Just pointed out in response to the

woke up for about an hour during the middle of

brighter point on each end. And I assume it's

out the other. Occasionally I'll see one which
is slightly different. Last night, exceptionally
bright and uniform all the way across. Now it

tell whether one end is further away or more

onto the canister were longer than the threaded

holes into the canister. And I had to scurry


around. And first, the spin handle was completely
inadequate for mechanical advantage. I had to
find a 90-degree - or Allen wrench - it was Just
hidden away in one of the tool boxes - and other-
wise, I'd have been unable to screw them in. And
I finally was able to - In Jack Lousma's spare
parts, I was able to find some washers to stand
off the bolts far enough to get them tightened
down. Otherwise, the canister would have been

gage. Verify SUIT PRESSURE - SUIT PRESSURE light
is off between 2.8 and 3.1 psig. As soon as that
thing comes off the peg at 2.8, your SUIT light
should go out. There it goes. LOW VENT FLOW light
is off. Okay, verify cuff gage is stable at 3.2
to 3.5 pslg.

326 17 01 51 PLT Okay. I'm stable at B.2 to 3.4 and I still have a
REG 1 LOW FLOW.
y 197

SPT Well, that's all right because we're on REG 2. No


sweat.

PLT That 's right.

SPT Okay. Note, next step: cuff gage will decrease


and cycle before stabilizing 5 psi ambient only.
Okay, we're going to go PRESS Sk_.ECT to KEG 1.

SPT Wait a minute. Hold on, we still have to go


ABSOLUTE. All right. Let's see how it stabilizes
out. It is ABSOLUTE; 3.7. SELECT to ABSOLUTE.
It is. How you doing, Bill? You stable?

326 17 06 22 PLT Wait a minute. I went to MODE S_T._CT, ABSOLUTE.


I'm on REG FLOW. It says suit pressure at 3.1
to 2.8.

SPT Well, REG 1 - back here and see where we ever


went to DELTA-P. Oh, I'm sorry; back to ABSOLUTE.

PLT Yes.

326 17 06 43 PLT PRESSURE S_T.F.CT,BOTH; then FLOW SELECT, IVA.


Okay, that's what I did.

326 17 06 46 SPT Now your suit's coming down.

at once. On MODE SELECT, ABSOLUTE. Tone. Okay,
I'm sorry.

SPT That 's okay.


200 ._

PLT That's when they tell I will get the tone - at


that point.

SPT That's right.

PLT But it says at the tone and you ought to verify;


so it's okay. Go ahead.

326 17 07 04 SPT Okay. So, Jer, EV - let me tell you now that
the _MU integrity check's complete. We're going
to temporarily stow our cue cards down here, and
you read to us from here on.

CDR All right. I got a couple of little things to do


up here with some 02 valves, like cut off your
water and all that good stuff. Be right with you.

326 17 07 39 SPT Let's not get ourselves crossed up here.

PLT Okay, let me get on the -

SPT Listen, don't go on up there yet, because I think


he - Jerry's going to have to come on in and stow, .
I guess, your LSU.

CDR All right. Let me get these oxygen things done.

SPT We'll wait until Jerry's ready to go.

PLT Yes, I want to get out - I want to get out um-


bilicals straightened out here.

326 17 08 01 CDR Okay, I verified that we got 02 pressure which is


good in the regulators; I'm going to turn off -
120 PSI REG B. 0kay, it's OFF. Let's see. The
drop was - Yes, it was fine. It was less than
i0 psi. All right. Verify your LOW VENT FLOW
lights are off.

326 17 08 32 SPT That's verified.

CDR Okay.

SPT Two verified.

CDR Uh, Bill?

PLT Yes.
201

326 17 08 40 CDR Come on down here again.

PLT Let's play a maypole here to get loose.

SPT Yes.

CDR Oh, all right. Just come on down here.

PLT l'm coming.

CDR Okay, REG B is OPEN. Here goes REG A, CLOSED.

PLT I need to go around your left side.

SPT Okay, you can go this way.

CDR Okay.

SPT Okay, now. All right you just come on over on


the other side of the pole.

326 17 09 08 CDR ... LOW VENT FLOW lights are off.

SPT Go on over to thatwall and up.

PLT Yes.

CDR Ed and Bill, check your LOW VENT FLOW lights off.

SPT They're off.

PLT Off.

326 17 09 i_ CDR Okay. Okay, EV-I, pro - proceed to the AM; enter
head first, and I'll be restowing as you're coming
along.

PLT In work.

CDR Don't go too fast now, or I won't be able to get


this restowed.

PLT I knocked the C-clamp off.

SPT Well, that's all right; it's tethered, isn't it?

CDR No.
2O2

CDR Bill, you - you're in too fast now. Just - Why


don't you go on back out a ways. I'm not going
to be able to manage your LSU with you up here in
with it. And then as you come in here, if you can
- No, I'll do that. I was going to say I was go-
ing to have you take care of the C-clamp. Is
this your umbilical now? All right.

PLT Don't I come in feet first? Head first.

326 17 l0 18 CDR Looks like feet first would be the way. Once
you're towards - -

326 17 i0 22 PLT Yes. I think that's wrong. I think it should be


feet first, from this end.

SPT I think you're right, Bill.

CDR Now remember, guys, don't be bulls in the chin


shop. Try to take it slow and easy. Let me get
this clamp put away.

PLT I'm with you, Jer.

CDR Now that clamp was way back here in the - Yes,
just tuck it in the corner there. It's a con-
tingency item. Well, there's no lanyard for it.
I'm going to - I'm going to put it on this panel
320 - -

326 17 ll 00 CC Skylab, this is Houston through Hawaii for 9


minutes. Out.

CDR Roger, Houston.

CDR And I'm Just going to clamp it on, Ed.

SPT Go ahead, Jer, because if the time comes when we


need it, we'll have lots of extra wrist tethers at
that point.

PLT Yes, Just screw it on inside one of those rails.


We needed that tether for something else.

CDR Okay. There, all right. Bill, you can move on in


now.

PLT Okay.
-'_ 2O3

PLT Slow and easy.

CDR Okay, that's probably about all - all we ought to


stow, I think - I think you are going to need a
few feet to move around with.

326 17 12 01 CDR Okay, Bill's in the airlock module now.

326 17 12 09 PLT Okay, I'm about where I normally am for the train-
ing exercises.

CDR All right.

CDR EV-2, head on up to the hatch.

SPT Okay. Coming up.

CDR Now. I've got to mauage your umbilical.

PLT You going to stow that?

CDR We're supposed to stow your umbilical in the aft


compartment.

PLT Oh.

CDR Bill, you're going to have to move to your right


or your left.

PLT Okay, I'll - Let me move to my left - -

CDR All right.

PLT - - and I'll let you by on the right; the correct


side to get to it.

326 17 12 49 CDR Man, are we large.

PLT Why don't you let me do that, Jer?

CDR That's all right.

SPT Yes, I think that's not a bad idea.

CDR Better save your - -

PLT See you got that occulting disk there and everything
right in the way.
2O4

SPT See, there's no - there's no way you can stow it


all in here, and then let me in too. Bill's
going to have to eventually push it back in here.

CDR All right, Ed. You want to go in feet firsts right?

326 17 13 18 SPT Right.

CDR All right, and I'ii Just guide your feet as I move
out of here.

326 17 14 07 PLT Man, that is a real tight fit. Let me - I think


the T025 is in the way.

SPT Yes, I think you're right.

CDR Okay. Be sure you look that hatch seal over real
well, Ed, before you close it.

SPT Okay, let me do that. And I tell you what, Bill,


let me pass this back to you.

PLT Just a second.

SPT Take ... - take it off.

SPT That's a good idea.

CDR Slow and easy. Okay, that's far enough. You got
a hatch to close, I think.

PLT Now let me - okay, I'm - going to get out of your


way.

CDR All right, I 'm out.

326 17 14 29 PLT Let me take mine off, too. Bend it slightly - I


can't quite get -

SPT There you go.

PLT There we go.

SPT Okay, now-

CDR Okay, Ed, you inspect the seal; when - when you're
done with that, holler.
205

SPT Okay, just a minute, we're going to get T025 moved


back here.

326 17 14 46 PLT I got it caught on the edge of the hatch back there.

SPT Stand back. I'ii fix it.

SPT Okay. Now move her back.

CDR Houston, how do you read?

326 17 15 00 SPT Carefully - okay.

CDR Houston, Skylab; how do you read?

SPT Now, let me take a - look the hatch over.

326 17 15 08 PLT Be real careful now, the T025 camera is above your
knees there.

SPT Yes.

326 17 15 38 SPT Okay, that hatch seal looks good, Jerry.

CDR All right, RELEASE HANDLE to UNLOCK.

326 17 15 50 CDR And HATCH HANDLE, OPEN.

PLT RELEASE HANDLE, I think, is on the other side there,


Ed.

SPT Right here?

PLT Just a second. Well, I better hold T025 here.

326 17 16 18 CDR Release the hatch from the wall and close it while
entering the aft - aft lock.

SPT Okay, you take it off the hinge?

PLT No, I don't think you have to take it off the hinge.

CDR It should just swing into place.

PLT Let's see, it goes that way. Why in the devil


did they have me train on that and then call you
out to do it?
206

SPT Now, hold on now.

PLT You got something on the other side of it, I think.

SPT Yes, I see it.

326 17 17 28 PLT All right, watch the camera up there.

SPT Yes.

PLT Now, I said that it went that way. That thing


may turn around the other way. I didn't think
you could reverse the number panels, though,
same both ways.

SPT ... off in both directions.

SPT Hey, Jer?

CDR Yes?

SPT When you came down here, which side of this panel
was facingyou?

CDR I didn't notice.

326 17 18 37 MS ...

PLT The rib ought to be on this side.

SPT No, darn it - let's see here.

CDR Now your HATCH HANDLE on your side is going to have


an EQUALIZE PRESSURE and an UNLOCK -

PLT Yes.

CDR Okay.

PLT Let me see what the other side has on it.

326 17 19 13 CC Skylab, this is Houston. 1 minute to LOS, next


station contact is 3-1/2 minutes through Goldstone
at 17 :23. Out.

326 17 19 23 CDR Roger, Bruce; how do you read me?

SPT Bruce, how do you read?


207

CO Loud and clear.

SPT Okay, how about panel - hatch 325. Is the ribbed


side towards the AM?

CC That's the forward one?

PLT/SPT The aft one.

CC SPT, Houston. The 325 - the aft hatch is not supposed


to be closed, Just the 0WS hatch back there. Over.

326 17 20 21 SPT Okay, there you are.

CDR You have to go in and unlatch it, Ed.

SPT Yes. I want to get this one out of the way.

PLT That - for crying out loud.

SPT (Laughter)

PLT Darn thing is always in your way.

SPT Yes, let's see now, how did you have it before?
Like this? That will do it, will it not?

PLT Yes, that'll be all right. Back - no.

SPT Okay, read what it says, Jer.

326 17 2i 20 CDR Okay, here we go again. Inspect the hatch seal


for obstructions.

SPT Have done it.

CDR All right, release the handle, R_T.E_SE HANDLE to


UNLOCK.

SPT Okay.

SPT 0kay.

_-_ CDR Closed the hatch while entering the aft lock.
208

326 17 22 12 SPT Coming down.

PLT Yes, we've got this out of - somehow this is not


quite right.

SPT Okay, where do you see the camera? Is that still


there?

PLT It's - it's still up there, all right.

326 17 22 17 SPT Okay, now just a minute. Don't push that thing
into me. Let me get this closed. Okay, go ahead.

326 17 22 21 CDR RET._&SE HANDLE to UNLOCK, and then HATCH HANDLE


to EQUALIZE PRESSURE, make sure your dogs engaged
and then R_T._&SE HANDLE to - to UNLOCK, and HATCH
HANDLE to CLOSE.

SPT Okay, RET._SE HANDLE to UNLOCK?

CDR Right.

SPT Okay.

326 17 22 36 CDR HATCH HANDT._ to EQUALIZE PRESSURE.

SPT Okay.

326 17 22 40 CDR Make sure your dogs have engaged.

SPT Yes.

CDR And keeping your RELEASE HANDLE at UNLOCK, take


your HATCH HANDLE and go to CLOSE with it.

SPT UNLOCK?

CDR HATCH HANDLE to CLOSE.

SPT Okay. And then to LOCK?

326 17 22 57 CDR RELEASE HANDLE to LOCK.

SPT Okay. We got it.

326 17 22 59 CDR Verify.

SPT That's verified.


209

CDR Now you're finished, and your HATCH HANDLE should


be at the CLOSE position; your RELEASE HANDLE to
the LOCK position.

SPT We've got it.

CDR Okay, assume your ET - EVA egress position, feet


toward the MDA.

SPT 0ks_v.

326 17 23 14 CDR All right, now I'm going to pass the - VC tree in
to you.

SPT Hold on, let us get the T025 squared away first, Jer.

326 17 23 21 CDR All right.

B26 17 23 27 SPT Bill, did you move that camera?

PLT It's hiding behind the hatch now, I guess,

SPT Oh, we got it.

PLT There it is over there.

SPT It 's okay, it 's okay.

PLT That's going to be hard to get to, though.

SPT Well, let me -

PLT Better get it out of there, before we go hard suit.

SPT Yes.

326 17 24 08 CC Skylab, this is Houston through Goldstone and


Bermuda for 5 minutes. Out.

326 17 24 14 CDR Roger, Houston. We had quite a few CONDENSATE


DELTA-P WARNING - or CAUTION lights and I have
INHIBIT the CAUTION AND WARNING on that.

SPT That's it. Back up here.

CC Okay, Jerry, and while you're at panel 207, we'd


like to make sure the PRI COOL TEMP HIGH switch
is in the ENABLE position. We believe it's cur-
210

rently INHIBITED. Likewise, all the other primary


airlock module coolant parameters should be ENABLED;
we believe they are. Over.

326 17 24 46 CDR PRI COOL T_4P HIGH is on.

SPT How where is your tether?

PLT Okay, now, Ed, Just let me get back in my right


position, here, because I thought the tether -
here it is - that we had it up here, Jer.

SPT All right, let's put it over here. Give me the


tether and we'll be all set.

PLT Okay.

326 17 25 22 SPT Unhook the other end.

326 17 25 56 SPT Okay, how's our umbilical situation?

CDR It's not too bad.

PLT Okay, I think I'm clear. Let's see.

SPT Yes, you are.

PLT I put my - your umbilical over my head, here, like


this.

SPT Okay, you're all set. Go ahead.

326 17 26 09 CDR All right, here's the VC tree, Bill. Coming at


you handle first. Watch your feet on the DAC.

PLT Yes.

326 17 26 20 CC CDR, this is Houston. Just a reminder - try to


avoid bumping the rate gyro six-pack installation
in your movements around the MDA. We're observing
them giving us outputs that are - are pretty
good size. Over.

326 17 26 33 CDR Roger. I've been thinking about that the last
45 minutes; being pretty careful.

CC Okay, we're not trying to bug you.


_.. 211

CDR I think it must Just be the - all the action


going on in the airlock module in the MDA area.

CC Right. We've been following that on the air-to-


ground.

PLT Okay, I want to get the foot restraint in. ***


you reading, Jer?

326 17 27 00 CDR Okay, read you loud and clear. VC tree - all
right, now I'm going to release the forward hatch.

PLT Okay, and I got to get 149 in'here.

SPT I'ii push it in for you. You all set? Okay.

326 17 27 22 PLT Okay. Man, is it crowded in here.

B26 17 27 27 SPT You could move up towards me, Bill.

PLT That - universal restraint handhold there is in


the way, I think.

_ SPT Yes,sureis.

PLT Universal mount, I mean.

SPT Got a fair amount of gear packed in here.

PLT And let's see, where was I? Oh, yes, I was going
to -

SPT Move back up towards me, Bill, and you'll be okay.

PLT Okay, I want to get all the umbilicals over the


back of my neck there.

SPT Okay, I'll watch. You can go out.

PLT Okay.

326 17 28 13 SPT Bill, you're going to have to hold that VC tree


out of there until I get this hatch closed.

PLT I'm sorry. Let me get that out of there.

326 17 28 27 CC Skzl_b, this is Houaton_ 45 seconds to LOS. Next


station contsnt h-i/2 minutes through Bermuda.
And for the SPT, would you verify that the airlock
212

module aft hatch panel 325 is not latched up against


the seal but it is sort of down flat on one side.

SPT It is down flat on one side.

CC Roger ; thank you.

SPT Okay, taking a quick look at the hatch seal. It


looks clean.

PLT Jer, it's not - you'll have to unlatch it. Move


it to unlatch. The dogs are up.

PLT-EVA Okay. Stand by.

CDR And set your filter - set your time at 1/1000 of


a second.
230 -

326 18 02 25 PLT-EVA *** up on that, Just a minute, Jerry.

CDR Okay.

PLT-EVA *** thing, Ed?

SPT-EVA Yes. I - I think you're okay, because - see, you


can see - -

PLT-EVA You can get red by going off to the side.

CDR Well, great. That means you got - it's going


to be easier to center.

326 18 02 _l PLT-EVA *** about that. You don't have the red circum-
ference.

SPT-EVA Yes, all you got is a nice orange - -

CDR Nice orange ball all the way around with no red;
I'd say you got it wired.

PLT-EVA Yes, okay.

CDE Don't worry about.

SPT-EVA Yes, and you've also got - -

CDR We got the 7 minutes now. We can get our things


going.

PLT-EVA Okay, Ed, I better get cracking - -

SPT-EVA Oh, okay.

PLT-EVA - - cable of mine.

326 18 03 00 CDR Get your remote cable undone and get your time
set to 1/1000 and then we're ready to roll.
Give her - give the canister a change to quit
oscillating after you let go of it. Man, we're
just hustling right along. We're doing great.

326 18 03 14 PLT-EVA Okay, I have the remote cable in hand.

CDR All right. Got your timer set?

PLT-EVA *** Timer.


231

CDR Say again? Yes, I guess it's shutter speed,


really.

PLT-EVA Oh, okay.

326 18 03 44 CDR Shutter speed at 1/1000 of a second.

PLT-EVA Okay, that's right.

CDR And if you're all ready to go, we have - Let's


see, 6 minutes to go. So if you think you can
get the VS tree out - or the VC tree without
bumping that thing, let's go ahead and do that.
And I'll tell you when it's time to start taking
data.

326 18 04 07 PLT-EVA Yes, I just don't want to touch that. See, if


I can - -

SPT-EVA Just make sure you got that all set up there,
Bill.

PLT-EVA Yes, I wanted to anchor this, Ed, so that I did


not induce an oscillationto the cable itself.
That'll work right there. I can - I can reach
over and touch - and click off my exposure. Okay,
we 're in good shape.

326 18 04 41 CDR All right, go ahead and get the VS - VC tree out.

PLT-EVA Okay. This is it - -

SPT-EVA Have you got a hold of it?

326 18 04 46 PLT-EVA Got it.

SPT-EVA Okay - good hands.

CDR You're in good hands with Allstate or something


like that.

SPT-EVA That the end?

CDR You've been out almost 22 minutes.

SPT-EVA Up and then push her. Up. There you go. Now
lock it.

i
232

326 18 05 09 SPT-EVA We're there. Okay, how we doing, Jet?

CDR You' re doing great.

SPT-EVA Are you all set to click it off, Bill?

PLT-EVA Yes.

SPT-EVA Did you get the VC tree installed?

PLT-EVA Yes.

CDR Say again?

SPT-EVA Yes, we have the VC installed and locked.

326 18 05 22 CDR All right, we've still got 5 minutes to go. What
else can we do here?

SPT-EVA Well, let 's see.

CDR $230, fire that rascal out and install it with


a wrist tether to the screen covering the EVA
lightnearthe LSU clamps.

SPT-EVA Okay, that's back over your head, there, Bill.

326 18 05 39 CDR And, Ed, when you hand that out to him, then go
get the DO2h and be ready to hand it out.

SPT-EVA Okay.

326 18 06 08 SPT-EVA Okay, now hook that to the light; here's the
handle. Got it?

PLT-EVA Got it.

326 18 06 28 CDR 3-1/2 minutes until T025 time.

PLT-EVA Okay, now let's leave the head on - the procedure


on T025.

CDR Yes, all you're going to do. You go down and


take a shot at i/i000. Then you're going
to change it to 1/30, wait until oscillations
die off, then take the shot. Then you're going to
switch to filter A-2 and do a h-second exposure,
and then do a 1-second exposure, and then change
233

to a filter A-3. I'll just read them off to you;


no big thing.

SPT-EVA Darn it, *** wait here.

CDR You got the D024 out?

326 18 07 12 SPT-EVA No, I got it ready to go, but I thought we'd


hold off here.

CDR No, go ahead. We still got time.

SPT-EVA Okay - -

CDR Let me worry about the time. You guys just move
right along smartly.

SPT-EVA Okay, where's it go?

CDR All right, D024 by the waist tether; you're


going to - -

SPT-EVA Got a waist tether on it.

_- CDR All right, you're going to do it to panel 321.


Switch guard is where you're going to connect
it.

326 18 07 hl SPT-EVA Okay, we've got it.

CDR All right. Now, Ed, while you're waiting, you


can get the DAC and start setting it up.

SPT-EVA Okay. The friendly DAC.

326 18 07 55 CDR Got 2 minutes to go, Bill.

PLT-EVA Roger.

CDR Doing fine. I don't think we'll take the DAC


out until we get this work done.

SPT-EVA Yes. You'll have to give me some settings on


it, too, Jer.

CDR All right. You ready, Ed?

326 18 08 16 SPT-EVA I'm ready. Go ahead.


234

CDR All right, f/ll.

CDR Okay, Bill, is T025 all settled out? Get ready


for your data take. It's about a minute
and a half away.

SPT-EVA f/ll?

CDR 500. That's for the DAC. It says setting of


500.

326 18 08 53 SPT-EVA *** hundred.

CDR 6 feet - 6 frames per second.

SPT-EVA Okay.

CDR And infinity for the focus.

326 18 09 12 SPT-EVA Got some XYZ's?

CDR All right. Set them to the red marks. That


should be an X of 350; Y, 320; and Z at i0.

SPT-EVA And we got one of those fellows without the reds.


So let's - give me the X's.

326 18 09 30 CDR All right, 350. Should be getting sunset pretty


quick, Bill.

SPT-EVA Y is what?

_ CDR Y is 320.

PLT-EVA Those exposures yet? Oh, no. Okay.

SPT-EVA ... and Z?

CDR Z is I0. About I0 or 15 seconds, Bill.

326 18 i0 13 CDR Okay, Bill, we're ready to start. Take your


first exposure. It should be filter A-I at 1/100
- 1/1000.

326 18 l0 21 PLT-EVA Okay, I hit - pushed the switch open and then
to close. I assume that did it.

CDR All right. Now it's the same filter, but change
your - your speed on the shutter to 1/30.
f_. 235

326 18 i0 35 PLT-EVA I'Ii give it about 15 or 20 seconds to damp out?

CDR Yes, yes, that's what it - it says to allow at


least 10. And when you - when you've damped out
and you're ready to go, go ahead and punch it
off and tell me when you -

326 18 l0 48 SPT-EVA Okay, an observation here; it looks as though


it's pretty steady. I can -

326 18 l0 5h PLT-EVA That's complete, Jer. What's the next one?

CDR All right, now you got set your filter to the
A-2 position.

326 18 ll 02 SPT-EVA I can see it when it os -when it's oscillating


real clearly, and I think I can tell when it's
pretty well damped, too.

PLT-EVA A-2, at what speed?

326 18 ll 09 CDR Okay, this is 4 seconds. You want me to time


it? Just tell me when you give a mark, and I'll
start timing it; and then I'll give you a m_k
and you - you release it.

PLT-EVA Stand by. I'm going to let it damp a little


bit more. Doesn't - doesn't look like it now.

CDR You have - do you have to put it on time


or something like that?

PLT-EVA Yes, the T-position and I assume that when


I go to OPEN, on my - -

CDR Yes - -

PLT-EVA - - shutter here, that - -

CDR That'll do it. Now you give a mark, and I'll


give you a mark 4 seconds later and you turn it off
then.

PLT-EVA Stand by -

326 18 ll 39 PLT-EVA MARK.

CDR l, 2, 3 -
236

326 18 ll 44 CDR MARK.

PLT-EVA
CLOSED. '

CDR Okay. Now A-2 for i second. Tell me when you're


ready. I

326 18 12 00 PLT-EVA It has a 1 second on it.

CDR Okay, good.

PLT-EVA I'll Just give it a little time to damp, there.

CDR All right.

326 18 12 2h PLT-EVA Got A-2 at 4 seconds and 1 second, Jer.

CDR Okay, that's done, huh? All right. Now you


got to A-3 on the position of the filter.

PLT-EVA What speed?

CDR 1/15; 1 over 15.

326 18 12 _l PLT-EVA Okay, I'll give it time to settle.

326 18 12 54 PLT-EVA Hey, that thing is Just as steady as a rock.


Okay, here we go.

SPT-EVA I concur, Bill. I can line m_ eyeball up with


a - with a piece on the solar panel.

PLT-EVA Yes. What's next, Jer?

CDR Okay, 1 over 500. Same filter setting, Alfa


3. Verify Alfa 3.

326 18 13 20 PLT-EVA Uh-oh, The detent came - Blast!

CDR What's the matter?

PLT-EVA Oh, this knob - you know, that sets the shutter
speed?

CDR Yes?

PLT-EVA It didn't - I didn't like the looks of it


yesterday.
237

CDR It came out?

326 18 13 36 PLT-EVA Yes _ you know - We got a great big knob that -
that screws in on the regular shutter speed set?

CDR Yes?

PLT-EVA And it's on - it's whe - freewheeling right now.

326 18 13 46 CDR Oh, crap. Well, that's the end of it. Let's put
it away.

PLT-EVA 0kay.

SPT-EVA *** get down in there and force it back on


there?

PLT-EVA Ah' *** hardware that way.

CDE There's no way you can get in there and see it


with your - -

326 18 lh 29 PLT-EVA Yes, I'm - -

SPT-EVA I'm working it. Give a second here.

SPT-EVA Can you see out the windows yet?

CDR I doubt it. Just a second; let me check. I've


been so busy watching the clock and everything
that I haven't had time to look outside.

PLT-EVA Tell you what - Take that camera off real quick
and look at it.

326 18 15 09 PLT-EVA *** that's really disgusting. That - that was a


very unpositive installation when I did it. I
took it - I put it on about three or four times,
and there's a very small lug that has to engage
on the seem that - the ring spring in there with
a notch cut out of it.

PLT-EVA Well, I'm afraid we just missed it.

CDR Okay.

SPT-EVA Tell you what, Bill. Is there any way you can -
you can do it manually without the large knob, or
238 --

is that impossible? That was made as a conven-


ience, but can you still get to it?

PLT-EVA I don't know. Trouble is, you see, this covers


up the regular speed shutter knob.

326 18 15 57 SPT-EVA Take that speed shutter - the large one off.

CDR Don't lose that big one.

326 18 16 i_ PLT-EVA All part and parcels of the - Light's right in my


eyes.

SPT-EVA Are we out of sunrise - out of Sun?

CDR No, no. We've still got some ti_e. We've got
another 30 minutes. Hello, Wilhelm, I can see you.

PLT-EVA Now let me see - what can I do?

SPT-EVA *** knob hook on there.

PLT-EVA I'm going to take it off the adapter here so I


can get a better look at it. Can't lose it
because it's tied to that grounding strap.
Guess it's there.

326 18 17 28 SPT-EVA How is that supposed to be keyed in there?

PLT-EVA It's hard to describe, Ed. It's, at best, a


• squirrely instrument. Get this in the shade
here. See if I can -

PLT-EVA Now, the whole head has to come off. It's - It's
just no good.

326 18 18 ll CDR Okay, take it in. Let's get on with it.

SPT-EVA Tell you what. Let's leave it right where it


is for right now - -

CDR No, let's take it in now.

SPT-EVA Look, Jer, we're going to complicate what we're


doing inside here. Let's get everything else
out and then we'll put it back in. Because we're
only going to ding that camera up if we bring it
here now - -
239

CDR Oh, all right; I see. Okay. We're not going to


waste any more time fooling with it.
r
B26 18 18 B2 PLT-EVA Yes. Think I've got my equipment right; let's go
ahead.

326 18 18 34 SPT-EVA Okay, where does the DAC go?

CDR The DAC goes as follows: On the F-6, hand -


handrail F-6 below the clothesline ; clip and lock.

SPT-EVA Not F-57

CDR No, it says F-6.

SPT-EVA Okay. What 've you got there?

326 18 19 07 PLT-EVA That's F-6.

SPT-EVA Okay, below the clothesline, clip and lock. Get


yourself a tether on it.

PLT-EVA Okay, wait a minute.

SPT-EVA Jer, we're going to have to get the lights back


on here.

B26 18 19 41 CDR Yes. They can go on now.

SPT-EVA Give you some lights.

CDR Okay, Bill, it says here that you should attach


_ the remote control cable to the side of the
canister again.

PLT-EVA No, wait just a minute; I'm having trouble with


the tether hook here.

CDR Okay.

SPT-EVA There, Bill. Give me your arm and I'll take


care of it.

B26 18 20 42 SPT-EVA Okay, it's tethered and locked. And I'll get
some light for you here.

CDR Okay, the procedures want us to bring that T025


back in. How much more stuff have we got there
that is in the way?
240

326 18 20 58 SPT-EVA Well, let's see. Looks clear; we've got the
clip; we got the Nikon sitting over there, and
the -

CDR Okay, see if you can get the $228; that's next,
Ed.

SPT-EVA Okay, but that, I egress with, is that correct?

CDR Let's see. Yes, indeed.

SPT-EVA All right I better get the T025 in - -

CDR Yes, bring - bring it on back in.

326 18 21 28 PLT-EVA Okay, that's in work.

CDR All right, Bill, let me read you what the pro-
cedures say on that. It says: Attach the remote
control cable to the side of the canister and
then pass the whole thing in to EV-2. And, Ed,
you're supposed to just stow it on a handrai] _ in
there, wherever you can.

326 18 21 54 CDR And then, Bill, will you - would you hand it in,
then reach for the filter case and hand that in
to him.

326 18 22 00 CDR *** the filter back off of it, Bill, and put away
in the case.

PLT-EVA No, I didn't. I'll do that right now.

CDR Okay.

CDR *** time, Bill, take your time.

CDR Houston, Skylab. How do you read?

326 18 22 42 SPT-EVA Hand that back in right now and I'll take care
of that.

PLT-EVA Got to get the tethers untangled here.

PST-EVA Yes. That's right. Don't force them.

CC Skylab, this is Houston through Carnarvon for


9-1/2 minutes. Out.
241

SPT-EVA Hello, Bruce. We got a problem with T025. We


got - got it set up and we were going great.
Got five exposures in and when we tried to set
the time to the exposure number 6, the doggone
shutter speed knob came off in Bill's hand, so
we're having to pass it in.

326 18 23 21 CC Okay, we copy. Can you set the - the shutter


speed with the gloves on, with the knob as part
of the camera?

PLT-EVA Well, that didn't come off, Bruce. It started


freewheeling. There's a little sort of spring
clip - circular spring clip in there with a notch
in it that engages the Jaws on the top of the
regular shutter speed. And it - I noticed yester-
day when I was assembling it, I had to put it
together three times to get it to engage right.
And I - I knew what had happened as soon as I
saw it freewheel.

326 18 23 54 CC Okay. Well, how are you - are you taking the
whole long eye relief viewfinder off to get it
off? Over.

PLT-EVA No, I - I had the - I had to take the thermal


blanket off. Can't - You can't get down to the
button and everything until you take the thermal

326 18 24 15 SPT-EVA I tell you what, that sounds like a Job that ought
to be done inside here, with all those extra parts
in there, Bill.

PLT-EVA Yes, I'd say that if we - we had time I - I think


we may be kicking a dead horse here trying to fix
it.

CDR Bruce, I don't see any sense in the world in


wasting time on this experiment if we can't get
it to hold together. I think that we better Just
put it off.

CC Okay, we concur. Terminate the T025 operations


and bring the apparatus back into the airlock.
Over.

326 18 24 38 CDR Okay.


242

CDR We'll take a good look at it after the EVA is


over and see if we can't Jury-rig it so it will
stay together for the next one.

CC Roger. We copy.

326 18 24 53 PLT-EVA The special viewfinder head fits on very loosely,


Bruce. Doesn't - doesn't make a nice firm,
tight engagement. I 'd say there 's a - probably
about, oh, look *** looks *** black. And I noticed
yesterday I had trouble with it when I was ***

CC Okay, we didn't copy the amount of the play, but


go ahead and bring it on in and we'll worry about
it later.

PLT-EVA Roger.

SPT-EVA Hold on, Bruce - or Bill, hold on. Let that thing
slip down. Okay

PLT-EVA Okay.

326 18 25 59 PLT-EVA Okay, Jer, Ed's stowing the T025 now.

CDR Okay, how about the - the filter case?

PLT-EVA Got that covered - -

SPT-EVA I got that in also.

CDR Okay.

SPT-EVA Just a minute here.

CDR When he gets that tethered then he'll take


$228 and start out.

326 18 26 23 PLT-EVA That's a beautiful sunset.

CDR Bruce, have the rate gyro settled down now?

326 18 27 15 CC CDR, this is Houston. We still see more activity


on the six-pack gyros than we do on the rate
gyros. However, they're acceptable and they've
settled down considerably from what they were
earlier. Over.
2_3

CDR Okay.

SPT-EVA Okay, Jer, I've got it tethered.

CDR Okay.

SPT-EVA Ready to go.

326 18 28 08 CDR Shut the airlock module and translate to the F-10
handrail.

SPT-EVA 0kay.

CDR Tell me when you get there and I'll tell you what
to do next.

SPT-EVA Okay ....

PLT-EVA Big Ed.

326 18 28 31 CC SPT, this is Houston.

SPT-EVA *** head.

CC Roger. We're having some telemetry problems


with your oxygen outlet temperature gages. Verify
for us that you're in the normal configuration
on your PCU. Over.

326 18 28 45 SPT-EVA Okay, I'm BOTH, ABSOLUTE, EVA NORM.

CC Roger. Thank you.

CDR Sounds pretty normal to me.

SPT-EVA Careful. Pull ... Come out. You can move that
link.

326 18 29 l0 CDR This would have been a good time to take that
Nikon out. Have you got it, Ed?

SFT-EVA Well, I 'll tell you what. It 's -

PLT-EVA It's going to be hard to _e the settings, Jero

SPT-EVA We've got a - we've got a doct_ment what we put out,


also. So let's Just hold off on that.

CDR All right.


2h4

PLT-EVA Hey. Manage EV-2's ***

SPT-EVA Don't pull that out very fast there because -


Make sure if you see anything ! if it's around
a blind corner, don't pull on it. Okay?

326 18 29 47 PLT-EVA Okay.

SPT ... one even back in there.

SPT-EVA Okay, Jer.

CDR All right. It says, place the S12 - $228 parallel


to the Sun on the empty side of the clipboard.
Remove the wrist tether and verify that the
clipboard is still perpendicular to the Sun.

326 18 30 17 SPT-EVA Okay. Just a minute here.

CDR Okay.

PLT-EVA Hey, we're having sunrise. Hey, I noticed that


your EV visor is up.

326 18 31 04 CDR And don't forget to fasten that $228 tether to


the universal mount.

SPT-EVA I'm with you there.

CDR Okay.

CDR Spend all that time clipping it on to the clip-


board, and then head for the VC and drag it off
with you. Is it dark out there?

SPT-EVA Sure is.

PLT-EVA Yes.

326 18 31 4h SPT-EVA Okay, I've got it tethered now.

CDR All right.

SPT-EVA Let's see - hold on. What I want to do is -

326 18 31 52 CC Skylab, this is Houston; 1 minute to LOS. Next


station contact in 6-1/2 minutes through Guam.
Out.
245

SPT-EVA Okay, I got it tethered. I'll tell you what,


when we come back with the Sun, give me a reminder
and I'll go by here and make sure that the thing
really is perpendicular.

CDR Okay.

326 18 32 13 SPT-EVA Or that the thing is parallel to the line of


sight.

CDR Well, go ahead and move to the center work station.

SPT-EVA Okay. One - You know those lights which shadow


the - the thermal curtain there, you can see the
outline of the light perfectly. So you can sure ***

CDR Can sure what?

PLT-EVA Ed, how do you read?

SPT-EVA Yes, I read you Bill, loud and clear.

PLT-EVA Okay. You cut off so quick there, I thought - -

SPT-EVA Okay. What you can see is that the Sun, where
it's not hitting the thermal curtain because of
the shadowing of even the very thin layer on
the - on those lights support or those light
protectors is considerably lighter.

SPT-EVA Boy, that sure was a beautiful sight.

326 18 33 08 CDR Okay. Are you maneuvering out toward the work
station now?

SPT-EVA I am. We've got my shoe - shoes in the center


work station.

CDR Jolly good. And, Bill?

SPT-EVA Okay.

PLT-EVA How much do you need?

SPT-EVA Okay. We want a LSU clamp.

CDR That 's right.


246

SPT-EVA Okay, Just give me a little bit there, Jer - or


Bill.

PLT-EVA Okay.

SPT-EVA Let me lean over here.

326 18 33 29 CDR It should be at about 31 feet there when you


clamp it.

PLT-EVA Okay, he's asking for about 30.

CDR All right. And when you get comfortable, Ed,


I want an _MU status check from you and Bill.
I should say from Bill and you. I'd like you -
like you to always do it in the same order, if
you would.

SPT-EVA Okay.

326 18 33 46 PLT-EVA EV-1 is 3.6. *** lights.

SPT-EVA EV-2, 6 - 3.6 and no lights.

CDR Okay. Good show. You ready to do it?

SPT-EVA Tell you what we do, let me move my wrist tether


which I've Just taken off of - - ...

CDR All right, Bill - -

SPT-EVA - - pull over my right side and I am ready.

CDR Bill, panel 321, CENTER BOOM, EXTEND, approximately


1 foot.

PLT-EVA *** approximately 1 foot.

326 18 34 16 CDR Okay. Stow S056 from the VC tree. Unstow it I


should say, and put it on the boom.

CDR Ed, when you can, you should open and - unlock
and open S056 door.
326 18 34 33 SPT-EVA That's done.

CDR S056 door is right in front of you, huh?

SPT-EVA Yes, how about that?


247

PLT-EVA ... We've positioned it.

CDR Canister roll works.

SPT-EVA That's right.

326 18 34 53 SPT-EVA Sure is a good looking therm-I curtain that those


folks put up. Boy, they did a great Job on that.

PLT-EVA S056 installed on the boom and locked.

CDR Okay. Send her out.

PLT-EVA Here you go, Ed.

SPT-EVA Okay. I want to put my right wrist tether on it.

tape off.

SPT-EVA Okay.

CDR That 's fine.

SPT-EVA Going in.

CDR Okay, you got the boom back, Bill?

PLT-EVA No - I'll send it back.

CDR Go ahead and retract. When you get it back, Bill,


put H-alpha 1 on it.

CDR A]] right. ROLL switch, ENABLE.

SPT-EVA Switch going to ENABLE.

CDR All right. CANISTER ROTATION, RIGHT, until you


get the H-alpha 1.

PLT-EVA H-alpha l's on the way down, Jer.

CDR Okay.

SPT-EVA S052 c_ning by.

CDR Now, I'm reading CANISTER ROLL in here. It's in-


creasing.

SPT-EVA o** the H-alpha.

CDR Okay. You got it lined up?

SPT-EVA Stand by.

326 18 37 41 SPT-EVA Okay. We got her.


2_9

CDR INHIBIT the ROLL, Ed.

SPT-EVA INHIBIT.

CDR Unlock and open the H-alpha 1 door.

SPT-EVA That 's done.

CDR And H-alpha i ought to be nudging you into the


back of the head about now.

SPT-EVA Yes.

SPT-EVA Tell you what, Bill.

PLT-EVA I'm retracting it a little bit.

SPT-EVA Yes, please do that so I can lean back. I don't


want to hit it on the way back.

SPT-EVA No, you're sending it out.

326 18 38 02 SPT-EVA Retract.

SPT-EVA Bill.

PLT-EVA Yes, I got it in RETRACT.

PLT-EVA Boy, I thought I 'd screwed it up. I thought I 'd


sent it out too far.

SPT-EVA No. 0kay, now hold that.

PLT-EVA How' s that ?

SPT-EVA Just hold on; let me lean back and get it.

SPT-EVA Send it out a little bit, about 1 more foot.

326 18 38 36 PLT-EVA 1 more foot.

SPT-EVA ... The other out.

PLT ***

PLT-EVA Moving?

SPT-EVA No.

PLT-EVA Stand by.

SPT-EVA There you go.

PLT-EVA Say when.

SPT-EVA That 's good.

326 18 38 56 CC Skylab, this is Houston through G1_m; 6-1/2 minutes.


Out.

CDR Roger, Houston. Ed wants to know where the safety


divers are.

CC They're in Huntsville. Over.

CDR (Laughter)

SPT-EVA Tell Don Ha-,,er he did the best Job he's ever
done in waiting me out.

SPT-EVA Okay, H-alpha is in.

CDR Okay.

SPT-EVA We 've got the white flag.

CDR Bill, RETRACT the BOOM all the way.

SPT-EVA We're going with the lock?

326 18 B9 24 PLT-EVA In work.

SPT-EVA This tether off.

CDR And fold the hook, Bill.

PLT-EVA Roger,

CDR Okay. Have you closed the door yet, Ed?

SPT-EVA It's in work.

CDR Okay.

SPT-EVA Just verifying.

CDR You did engage the lock/lock on the handle, right?


251

SPT-EVA Affirm.

CDR Good show.

326 18 39 50 SPT-EVA Okay, and I've got the white flag on the door.

CDR Okay.

SPT-EVA And it 's locked.

CDR Okay, go back to panel 160; ROLL, ENABLE.

SPT-EVA ENABLE.

CDR Would you believe I blew it? We didn't get the


DAC on !

326 18 40 04 SPT-EVA Okay.

PLT-EVA Well, let's Just -

CDR Go ahead and turn it on.

SPT-EVA Okay. Now, the position should be - You got a


F little index in there that tells you to point it
towards what? The center work station?

CDR Okay, you got panel 60 [sic] ROLL, ENABI/_?

SPT-EVA That' s affirm.

CDR All right. CANISTER ROTATION to the RIGHT until


you get to align Sun end.

SPY-EVA ...

326 18 40 49 PLT-EVA The DAC is not working.

CDR Okay. All right, you got - you got it align


Sun end, Ed?

SPT-EVA Yes.

CDR AI] right.

PLT-EVA No, I take it back; it is.

CDR ROLL, INHIBIT.

326 18 41 02 SPT-EVA Okay, ROLL to INHIBIT now.


252

CDR The S082 door is OPEN.

SPT-EVA Okay, going to open now.

CDR A11 right. You should have two lights going on - -

SPT-EVA Light is out.

CDR - - after a l0 second delay.

SPT-EVA ... A's open. .N_ open.

326 18 41 22 CDR Okay. POWER 2 to INHIBIT. They're inhibited?


SPT-EVA Affirm.

CDR Okay. Now I've got some panel 130 work to do.

SPT-EVA You know, that thermal shield that SL-3 guys put
on looks good. They did a nice Job of covering
that thing uniformly.

CC Roger. Owen's back there in the viewing room.

SPT-EVA Dick, tell him they did a great Job. Lines are
nice and taut.

326 18 42 07 CDR Okay. FII/4 revs - RESET select is going to


H-ALPHA now.

SPT-EVA You know, Bruce there sure is an awful lot of


discoloration on the side of the vehicle where the
- Sun is still hitting;that's the side of the
vehicle where the protective panel was ripped off,
the meteroid shield. It's - For some reason, it's
not uniform in X, which you'd expect. You'll see
that in m_f pictures when we - we come back. But
closer to plus X, it's red, and then it turns
green and then a little yellow and them more green
back there. Kind of tough to figure out. Must be
the venting.

326 18 42 48 PLT-EVA Okay, Jer, did you say ***

SPT-EVA How's the friendly DAC doing?

PLT-EVA It 's grinding away.


253

SPT-EVA Good.

PLT-EVA Hey, Jer, how do you read?

CDR Loud and clear, Bill. I think you can turnthe


DAC off now.

326 18 43 25 CDR Okay, I'm doing an H-alpha check, here. You g_s
Just might as well relax out there for a second.

SPT-EVA Okay.

SPT-EVA There is the ground. Boy, if this isn't ever the


great outdoors. Inside, you're Just looking out
through a window; here, you're right in it.

SPT-EVA I tell you, you really know you're moving along


here.

PLT-EVA That's the Sun end, right?

SPT-EVA *** ... again, Bill.

PLT-EVA Are you readingme?

326 18 44 34 SPT-EVA You're cutting in and out.

PLT-EVA Yes, I keep cutting in and out.

CDR I'm reading you okay, Bill.

SPT-EVA You're Just going to have to start - Your first


- couple of words are going to have to be fairly -
fairly loud to key the VOX.

PLT-EVA Okay.

326 18 44 46 CC Skylab, this is Houston; 45 seconds to LOS. Next


station contact in 17 minutes through Goldstone
at 19 :02. Out.

CDR Okay, Ed, unclamp your LSU.

SPT-EVA Unclamped.

326 18 45 08 CDR And, Bill, turn on the DAC. And when you're
unclamped, Ed, then you egress the VC, trans-
late to the VT; go on over the top of the twin
poles. Up.
254

PLT-EVA Oh, my goodness.

MS What's the matter, Bill?

PLT-EVA Oh, the DAC keeps coming loose.

326 18 45 35 SPT-EVA I'm not sure you still got it there. I'd push
her in there.

PLT-EVA It's not a positive lock. I've - I've latched


it once before.

SPT.EVA Going over the top. I'll tell you that makes
sense down there in the water tank in Huntsville,
but it's kind of hard to see it here, although I
know by the geometry what we want.

CDR Okay, let me know when you're in the VT foot


restraints.

326 18 46 04 SPT-EVA Okay. That's in work. Boy, is this material


discolored; all of this white thermal paint.

PLT-EVA Okay, I'm going to move this camera more - -

SPT-EVA Same of it ... dark brown.

PLT-EVA - - in.

CDR Bill, while Ed's moving out there, give me a


sense - EMU status check.

PLT-EVA Okay. I don't have any lights and I'm reading


3 ***

CDR Say it again, please.

PLT-EVA 3.65.

326 18 46 47 CDR 3.65. Hello, Ed. I see you out there.

SPT-EVA Okay. I am in the foot restraints and - -

CDR I know it; I can see you.

SPT-EVA I'm looking at 3.6, a little over, and no lights.

CDR Okay, I can see you; big as life - -


255

SPT-EVA Boy, you know, I know what Joe Kerwin meant now
when he says, "Boy, if you've felt you were going
to fall of something, it's up here."

326 18 _7 09 CDR You're big as life and twice as ugly, Ed. Okay.

SPT-EVA Boy, I'll tell you, this is a sensation out at


this end.

CDR Bill?

PLT-EVA Yes ?

CDR Panel 321, SUN END BOOM. EXTEND approximately


1 foot, deploy the hook.

PLT-EVA Okay, I'm going to have to move a tether hook here.


It's right in the way.

SPT-EVA ***rizon to the other in front of me. What a


panorama.

PLT-EVA Okay, extend a foot, you say?

CDR Extend it a foot and unlock the hook.

PLT-EVA Roger.

326 18 _8 05 CDR Then put the VS tree on it, with the shoe towards
the airlock module. It says here: Attach the VS
tree to the boom, shoe towards the airlock module,
and lock the hook.

PLT-EVA *** ...

PLT-EVA Complete. Ready to extend.

SPT-EVA Tell you what, Bill, before you extend it, would
you give me some more LSU? You got me pretty
tight here. I can't lean back.

PLT-EVA I'm sorry.

SPT-EVA I'd like to have a little loose - have it quite a


bit looser than it is now.

326 18 49 05 SPT-EVA Okay, that's good. I don't want to be dragging


it over those poles.
256

CDR Okay, Bill, when you got things squared away there,
then you EXTEND the SUN END BOOM on out.

PLT-EVA Okay. In work.

SPT-EVA Okay. Now, watch it coming over the - that


clothesline, which was used to raise the thermal
cell.

SPT-EVA Make sure we clear. Okay, you're clear of the DAC.

PLT-EVA I 'm watching it.

$PT-EVA Yes. I think you got good clearance. Okay,


leaning back for it. Say when.

PLT-EVA Further?

B26 18 50 20 SPT-EVA Keep-a-coming. Okay .... clamp, a wrist tether.


Hard to do. Let me see, I don't want to cut -

B26 18 51 19 PLT-EVA Benard cells right down there. I'm sorry, Ed, I
guess you're busy.

CDR Okay. You've been out an hour and 7 minutes


troopses [sic].

SPT-EVA ... there. Okay, I've got it in there; in the


Sun end shoe and locked.

CDR Okay, Bill, you can retract the boom.

B26 18 51 _2 PLT-EVA In work.

CDR And, also, unclamp Ed's LSU so he can transfer


to the VS.

PLT-EVA Unclamped.

CDR And as soon as he goes over the - the end of the -


the Sun end, there, you can turn off the DAC.
Tell me when it's off.

B26 18 52 01 PLT-EVA Turned it off already.

CDR Yes. Apparently, all they want to do is - see


the boom operation. And of course, we screwed
it up already and haven't - They didn't get to
see the VC boom operation. We'll do better
257

though for the clothesline. They probably al-


ready have some boom data anyway. But that T025
kind of got us off our stride here.

326 18 52 37 SPT-EVA Hold on. Now let me see about my umbilical.


There we go. 0kay_ I'm locked in there.

CDR You're in the VS?

SPT-EVA I'm in the VS.

CDR Good show. Okay. Let's have another status check.

PLT-EVA I have no lights.

CDR Bill, you're going to have to t_]_ louder or


longer or something.

PLT-EVA Okay. EV-1, 3.65, no lights.

CDR Got you.

SPT-EVA EV-2, 3.6 and a little, and no lights.

PLT-EVA Hey, Jer?

CDR All right. Do you guys want to stop and rest for
a minute? Let me go down in the command module
and tweak up the VOX sensitivity a tad.

PLT-EVA A] I right.

_ 326 18 53 18 CDR Just - Just hang loose there; don't go anywhere.

PLT-EVA I thought we'd go outside for a few minutes.

PLT-EVA Lot of water down there.

CDR I wish I had set the slider up, darn it. I - maybe
if I get a couple of seconds here, I'll set it up
to the ascending node so we can see where we are.

SPT-EVA Quite a sensation when you're out here in these


shoes at the Sun end and you lean back.

SPT-EVA Tell you, Jet, you can't appreciate it until you


do it.

CDR Right.
258

SPT-EVA Have you ever felt as though you were out in the
open and floating all on your own?

CDR Okay. I's KsicS in here. Let's try that sensi-


tivity up a little bit. All right, Bill, now
give me a short count.

326 18 54 35 PLT-EVA Okay; l, 2, 3, 4, 5, 4, 3, 2, l, short count out.


SPT-EVA Let me ma_e a little observation here. When we're
looking at the Sun end - -

CDR Wait a minute. You're continuously keyed now,


I think.

PLT-EVA Oh, is that right?

CDR Everybody Just stop and breathe. All right now,


Bill, say something.

PLT-EVA ***kay, testing, l, 2, 3, 4.

CDR How about you, Ed? Now you give me something.

SPT-EVA Okay; l, 2, 3, 4, 5 --

326 18 55 00 CDR All right. I think we got - -

SPT-EVA 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

CDR I think we got good settings now. Go ahead, Ed.

SPT-EVA Oh, I was Just looking at the - the Sun end,


these - not the thermal shield, but the Sun end
itself. And apparently this is built on square
rib structure maybe, oh, 4 inches or so between -
between ribs, and those ribs show up darker, for
some reason, underneath this. I - You know, it's
probably got a thin material over it. And the
other - In between the squares, the cells are
lighter, but the ribs which are maybe, oh, 1/4-inch
or 1/2-inch thickness all show up darker. And
that's true even where the doors have been opened
or closed. Not quite as dark as in the other
locations.

326 18 55 45 CDR Okay. You ready to pick up the time line?

SPT-EVA Okay, go ahead.


259

CDR Let's get with it here.

SPT-EVA Go ahead, read - read on.

CDR All righty. Open the S082A ATM door.

SPT-EVA It 's open.

CDR All right. Unlock and open the 82A container door.

SPT-EVA Okay. Boy, you really got to be careful; you can


Just push that thing around very easily; the
canister, I mean.

CDR Okay, remove S082A from the container.

SPT-EVA Standby. Boy, that really sprung open. I won-


der if that means that thing had gas in it. It
- it popped open on me.

CDR Okay.

326 18 56 24 SPT-EVA In other words, when I released it, - when I


_ released the handle- -

CDR Yes.

SPT-EVA - - I did get that - a fair amount of loading was


there; whether it's spring loading in the - in
the mechanics itself or whether it was a loading
from the - any gas in there, I'm not sure. I
couldn't tell. I'll try and wake sure on 82A -
_ or B and seewhat happens.

CDR Okay. Well, you're - you're on tape, so they've


heard it now, and they can tell us whether or not
it is supposed to be springs or gas. Okay. Now
it says install that rascal partially, and then
extend the handle and push it fully into the
receiver and look for the white flag.

326 18 57 07 SPT-EVA All right.

SPT-EVA You did say I have to lift the handle up first


on the inside?

CDR That's right. You install partially and raise


the handle.
26o

SPT-EVA Handles I have to partially raise. Handle - on


the camera, there's also the handle inside, which
is the locking handle in the careers, or in the
experiment itself.

CDR Yes. That's right. It says open S082 ATM door


and rotate the handle to unlock. I thought you
had done that when you said you had - -

SPT-EVA No.

CDR - - opened the door.

SPT-EVA Okay, go ahead.

CDR All right. Now you got it in and white flag and
the whole bit?

SPT-EVA That's right; white flag and the lock handle is


do_.

326 18 57 53 CDR All right. Says verify you got a white flag.

SPT-EVA
Verified.

CDR Close and lock the ATM door.

SPT-EVA Okay. It's closed and locked.

CDR Okay, open the B door.

326 18 58 09 SFT-EVA Okay, that's in work. Let's see, B door, what


have you got for me?

CDR This is the one that's tight, huh?

SPT-EVA No, it opened up fine.

CDR Great.

SPT-EVA I didn't even have to put my hand around the - up


at other end. I did it all with the handles.

CDR Very good.

SPT-EVA I'd say it was a relatively - It was snug, but it


was not hard.

CDR Okay. Reach in and rotate the handle to unlock.


26].

SPT-EVA That 's the position it 's in now.

CDR All right.

SPT-EVA Go ahead.

CDR All right. Unlock and open the B canister.

SI_T-EVA Okay. Okay, I've got the handle now, 90 degrees.


Okay. That one - that one did not spring open on
me. It sprung open m_ybe, oh, a quarter to a half
an inch or so. But nothing like the A.

326 18 59 00 CDR Okay, Ed. Must have had gas in it.

SPT-EVA I'm not sure how they - I know it's either dry
nitrogen or vacuum. I thought it was vacuum.

SPT-EVA Okay, let me get a tether on this beauty.

CDR Now, this is when you got your double - double


handle folding Jobber there.

SPT-EVA Correct. And they did a good Job. They've got a


_ nice tether attach point that allows you to slide "
up.

SPT-EVA Okay.

326 18 59 40 CDR All right. Shove it in, and when you've got it all
the way into the receiver, the white flag should
come up partially.

$PT-EVA 0kay. ...

CDR All right. Then you - -

SPT-EVA Wait a minute, Jer.

SPT-EVA Okay, Now I'm Just going to deploy the - the


second one. Okay, wrist tether's off.

CDR Okay, your locking handle is a - You move it to


the right.

326 19 01 26 SPT-EVA That's affirm. I've got it.

CDR You got a c_ - a full white flag?


262 ._

SPT-EVA I got a full white flag and - -

CDR Okay. Close and lock the door.

SPT-EVA Verified; it's snug. Yes, that's good. The - the


handle is - that I used to insert it is snug up
against the locking mechanism.

CDR 0kay.

326 19 01 48 SPT-EVA We're good.

CDR Close and lock the door and then close and lock
your container doors.

SPT-EVA 0kay, in work.

326 19 01 59 SPT Okay, Houston. I had no problem opening the 82B


door; it was only a little bit snug.

326 19 02 04 CC Okay, good to hear. And we're with you through


Goldstone, Corpus Christi, Merritt Island, and
Bermuda here.

326 19 02 ll SPT-EVA Roger, Bruce. And one thing I did have when I
opened the 82A container door, it popped open like
it was either spring loaded mechanically or it had
some gas in it. I'm not sure which the situation
WaS •

B26 19 02 25 CC Okay. We copy.

326 19 02 27 SPT-EVA The B door sprung only a quarter or so - a quarter


- of an inch, which you would expect from Just a
small amount of loading. But the other one seemed
to have quite a bit of loading on it, either
mechanical or gas.

CDR Okay. Okay, reposition and clear the aperture


doors, and advise me when I can start with the
checks.

SPT-EVA Go ahead, Jer. Start with the checks.

326 19 02 57 CDR Okay, I'm going to reset the film counters right
now. XUV SPECT is reset. We're looking at
201 frames. All right, the POWER DOOR switch
is coming OFF.
263

SPT-EVA Good, there's a lot of clouds down here.

PLT-EVA Yes, there's a lot of land now too.

326 19 03 2h SPT-EVA Okay, 82A door is going closed.


CDR Okay.

PLT-EVA ... coast it-iq?

CC Hey, you're over the coast of WashinEton state, up


near Canada there, Bill.

PLT-EVA We Just had a good view of the Canadian Rock _#

CDR Is it closed yet, Ed?

326 19 03 h3 SPT-EVA 82/ is closed; affirm.

CDR Okay, I don't have a barber pole; it's gray. All


right, MAIN POWER is coming ON. Now it's gray.

SPT-EVA Yes, you got to get MAIN POWER in order to get


the indication.

CDR Right.

SPT-EVA 0therw_.se, you get the center position on that flag.

326 19 03 58 CDR All right, now the POWER/D00R switch is going ON


again. And I got a white flag.

SPT-EVA Got the door now.

CDR I don't have a READY/0PERATE light; that's probably


because the integral lights are - are off. No.

SPT-EVA There are four indicator switches up there in


the left-hand corner called DISPLAYS, Jer; it'll
have to be to BUS 2.

326 19 Oh 48 CDR Yes, let's see. Two of them are not; I'll go ahead
and flip them on. No, that doesn't get it either.

SPT-EVA Hit lamp TEST, Just to make sure.

326 19 05 03 CDR Okay. No, nothing.


264

326 19 05 07 SPT-EVA Oh, you don't get it on lamp TEST, huh?

CDR No.

SPT-EVA Okay, let's see - take a look at STATUS LIGHTING


BACKUP circuit breaker number 1. Is that in?
Don't push it in yet, you may want to - -

CDR No, it it's not in.

SPT-EVA Okay, check with ground.

326 19 05 25 CC We're here, Jerry. What do you need?

SPT-EVA Well.

CDR Okay, we're trying to do an XUV SPECT check here,


and it calls for a READY light - READY OPERATE
light on XUV SPECT, and I don't think we got it
powered up.

SPT-EVA Would you verify, Bruce, that you need a STATUS


LIGHTING BUS - STATUS BACKUP LIGHTING BUS 1,
circuit breaker in.

CDR We show the instrument powered up satisfactorily.


We're checking on the displays.

326 19 06 05 SPT-EVA Where are we right now, Bruce?

CDR He said you Just went over - -

CC You're about over the northern border of Montana.

SPT-EVA Beautiful countryside. You can see the snow


patterns.

PLT-EVA Yes, it must be the Missour *_*

326 19 07 05 CC CDE, Houston. We have telemetry indication you've


lost flow in the SUS COOLANT i. Over. We've got
about 30 seconds to LOS. We'll be back with you
in a minute and a half through Corpus Christi.
Over.

CDR Okay. That's good news. I still feel cool water_


can you guys?

SPT-EVA Yes. Let me go MAX and Just see. Usually you -


you can usuallytellthen. _-_
265

326 19 07 B3 SI_-EVA Yes, I can sure feel it.

CDR Yes. Well, I don't want to go any further with this


ATM check unless we got this READY light. I do
believe you got to have those circuit breakers - that
circuit breaker in.

326 19 07 50 SPT-EVA Let's see, up under DISPLAYS you got those four
switches to BUS 2?

CDR Yes -

326 19 07 58 SPT-EVA Not BUS l, but BUS 2.

CDR Two of them are not, but I switched them down and
checked and that didn't help.

SPT-EVA Okay, which two were not? EVENT TIMER and -

CDR EVENT TIMER and POWER SYSTEM.

SPT-EVA Okay, you don't need those.

326 19 08 12 CDR But DAS ORBIT PHASE and ACS CEN - CONTROL are -

SPT-EVA That won't help you; that's right.

CDR Yes, they won't help you either.

SPT-EVA Are all your other circuit breakers in and all your
switches up - -

- CDR Yes.

SPT-EVA - - on that lower left-hand panel except for BACKUP?

CDR They sure are.

SPT-EVA STATUS BACKUP?

326 19 08 2B CDR That's right.

PLT-EVA Except circuit breakers.

326 19 08 30 SPT-EVA What are you showing for a position of the door now?

CDR The door is open.


266

SPT-EVA Okay, that's correct.

326 19 08 39 CC CDR, this is Houston.

CDR Go ahead, Houston.

326 19 08 hh CC On panel 202, we would like for you to check circuit


breaker SUIT UMBILICAL SYSTEM l, LCG PUMP, PRIMARY.
Over.

SPT-EVA Okay, Bruce, SPT. I'm getting good flow out here.
I Just went to MAX to verify it, and I'm getting
good flow.

PLT-EVA EV-1 - -

CDR Those breakers are all up and in good shape and


we still feel good coolant.

326 19 09 09 CC Okay, Jer. We could Just hear you in the background.


Understand you're saying that you believe you have
good flow on board.

326 19 09 ll CDR So far, it feels okay. We haven't felt any change -


in it. And the SUS 1 - Yes, all of the SUS 1 and
SUS 2 circuit breakers are CLOSEd.

CC Okay, tbs_k you. It's probably a transducer


problem.

CDR Okay.

PLT-EVA Ed, look down. We're right over Lake Michigan.

CDR I'd like to check and see if I can close the


STATUS LIGHTING BACKUP circuit breaker, the five
volt breakers, so we can get some ready lights and
get on with this evaluation.

SPT-EVA Number l, I believe, is all you need, Jer.

326 19 l0 23 CC CDR, Houston. On the left-hand side of the C&D


panel, would you check the ALERT/STATUS LIGHTING
switch and make sure it's in the VARIABLE position?
Over.

326 19 l0 3h CDR Okay, it is now.

CC That solve your problem?


267

CDR Sure did.

326 19 l0 43 CDR Okay. READY light is on; MODE switch to TIME;


START/STOP to START and then STOP.

326 19 l0 57 CDR We got a decrement in the - in the goodie. We got


a - READY light's good; POWER/DOORS, our talkback
is white. We're in good shape. Let's cheek the
XUV SLIT now.

SPT-EVA Looks like to me we're coming up on a good front.


See a good line of thunderbumpers.

PLT-EVA Yes. Right - right across Cape Hatteras.

CDR 0kay.

326 19 ll 35 CDR Be through here in Just a minute, you guys.

SPT-EVA You know we been working - -

PLT We 're - we' re rubbernecking.

_ SPT-EVA That's right. We've been working so hard inside


that - inside the spacecraft, we never really had
time to look out and see all this.

326 19 12 01 CDR Okay, the 82B door should be open now, Ed, and I
got a READY light.

SPT-EVA I guess B door is open and A door's open.

326 19 12 08 CDR Okay. I'm going to TIME. Want to pick off one
- frame. Looks good; we got a READY light.

326 19 12 28 CDR PO_/DOOR switch is OFF.

B26 19 1B l0 SPT-EVA 82A door closing now.

CDE Okay.

SPT-EVA That thermal curtain now, which SL-B put up, is


also turning brown ; all except for a few folds
where it doesn't receive sunlight.

CC Roger, Ed. We're copying you, and we're with


you here for about 7 minutes through Merritt
Island.
268 ....

SPT -EVA Roger.

SPT-EVA Oh, boy, there's the whole state of Florida.


I'll tell you, in this position is kind of hard
to see. There it is.

SPT-EVA We can see all the way down the eastern seaboard.

PLT-EVA Yes.

SPT-EVA Looks like they're having a relatively good day


up there in the northeast. Close to the coast-
line - clear.

326 19 15 06 CDR Okay, Ed, can you see 82A, 82B, and the XUV MON
doors are all closed?

326 19 15 13 SPT-EVA That's verified; all three are closed.

CDR Okay. Now I'm going to roll the canister, which


will allow you access to the H-alpha 2 aperture.

SPT-EVA I tell you what, it's sitting right in front of


me. What roll do they recommend? --

CDR Well, they recommend 4200 and right now we are


looking at 6990 - 91.

SPT-EVA Well, maybe - I'll tell you what; heck, you know,
it's right between the handrails which we use to
hold on here. It 's right - you know, it 's tethered
right in front of me. Let me take the - why don't
you Just read the procedure on, and if I have - -

CDR All right.

SPT-EVA - - trouble, well, we'll roll it.

CDR Okay. Retract the manual aperture release pin


from H-alpha 2 door by turning counterclockwise
until free, and then pull.

326 19 15 57 SPT-EVA Counterclockwise; in work. Okay, and the little


safety wire binds up on it a little bit.

SPT-EVA Okay.

CDR Manually move the failed door clear of the aper-


ture, and then lift the latch to hold the door
open.
269

CDR Okay, been out an hour and a half, you guys.

326 19 16 51 PLT-EVA Reading 3.65 and no light.

SPT-EVA Stand by on mine.

CDR Okay.

326 19 16 56 SPT-EVA Okay. That latch is lifted.

CDR Okay. All right, Ed, stand clear, I'm going to -


I'm going to roll the canister.

SPT-EVA Wait a minute, wait a minute. Hold the phone.

SPT-EVA Okay, go ahead.

CDR Okay, I don't have to move very far.

SPT-EVA Boy, that's a real sight. I'm looking into the


H-alpha filter, which is reflecting my _mage off
of the image off my visor of the whole ATM.

..... CDR Canister'srolling,Ed.

CC Sounds beautiful.

B26 19 17 44 SPT-EVA *** a camera for this one - it's sort of overlap-
ing - I see three overlapping four lapping images
because of the curvature of my visor. You didn't
go very far, did you, Jer?

CDR No, I didn't have to go far at all.

SPT-EVA Okay.

CDR I'm still twitching it.

SPT-EVA That H-alpha filter, when I move off to the side,


I can see Just a little bit of dust on it. You
know, a little bit of reflection of small particles
on the surface of it. But I would say it's clean.
But I can see that small dust reflection. It looks
as though there's several different sizes of par-
ticles too. Some relatively large which I can see
and then a relatively uniform smattering of sm_]ler
ones.

326 19 18 42 CDR Okay, Bill, turn on the DAC. And, Ed, head for the
_ VT footrestraints.
270

SPT-EVA Okay. In work.

SPT-EVA Bruce, if any of the guys in the backroom want


any descriptions out here, I'll be glad to give it
to them.

CC Okay. I'm sure they're all ears back there.

SPT-EVA Let them ask the questions.

CC You seem to be answering them all so far.

SPT-EVA N** easy when you invent them.

B26 19 19 2B SPT-EVA Okay. I'm in the VTs.

CDR Okay. Give me a status check.

PLT-EVA Okay. EV-I, no lights and 3.65.

SPT-EVA *** .65, no lights for EV-2.

CDR Okay. Bill, EXTEND the SUN END BOOM, and Ed, get
the VS tree ready to put on it.

SPT-EVA Okay. Let me get a - done.

CDR When the boom gets there, Ed, you want to attach
the VS tree such that the shoe is toward the AM.

SPT-EVA ... - -

326 19 20 07 CC Skylab, Houston; 1 minute to LOS Bermuda. Next


station contact in i0 minutes through Ascension at
19:30. And Just for your information, we're back
within a couple percent of nominal on Y-axis
momentum and only about BO percent off in X.

PLT-EVA Okay, it's right under your left elbow there, Ed.

SPT-EVA Just a minute. Hold it - hold it up a little.

CDR How's -how's your coolant going, guys?

SPT-EVA Mine's beginning to warm up.

PLT-EVA Mine's okay. It's h-i2.

SPT-EVA Hold on, Just a minute here.


271

326 19 20 53 PLT-EVA Okay, I'Ii get that back out of your way, Ed.

SPT-EVA No, you're okay. Just leave it where it is.


Leave it where it is.

PLT-EVA *** a little bit.

SPT-EVA Okay, now. Bring it toward me. Okay, that's good.


Now, keep that shoe toward the AM.

CDR Right.

SPT-EVA You mean toward my face. Is that affirm? Is that


the way you would -

326 19 21 52 PLT-EVA The DAC is really shaking its little heart out.
I didn't realize it vibrated that much.

SPT-EVA DAC - or shoe toward the A -

PLT-EVA That's got to be right, Ed. Don't - don't worry,


I mean, I can - I can take it here.

f_ CDR Yes. I don't think it's really too important.

SPT-EVA Okay. No, I think I got it right.

CDR Okay.

SPT-EVA Go ahead.

PLT-EVA Ready.

CDR Pull it in, Ed --

SPT-EVA Let 's go.

326 19 22 20 CDR - - verify and lock.

SPT-EVA Go ahead.

PLT-EVA Okay, I'm going to pull it in most of the way and


then stop and get the DAC out of the way. Because
I got the DAC here so I can get good shots of it -
Okay, now I'll - Watch your umbilical here. Yes,
I'll watch it. It's going to clear.

CDR Okay, Bill, when you get that in, you want to put
that tree away in the receptacle and then put F -
S149
on.
272

PLT-EVA Okay.

326 19 23 05 PLT-EVA I can see where S149 has fit before.

SPT-EVA Picture of the 149 going out.

SPT-EVA Okay, tell you what. Before it gets too much


further, why don't you pull my umbilical around
to the other side ... ?

SPT-EVA There you go. That 's good.

326 19 24 h4 PLT-EVA Okay, I'm getting shots of this, too.

CDR Okay, they don't have us turning off the DAC - -

PLT-EVA I have to keep moving it - -

CDR - - for a long time now.

SI_f-EVA I have to keep moving it out of the way, Jer,


because it 's - it 's a good location here, but it 's
right in the way of the transfer.

326 19 25 05 CDR Okay, you got a lot of DAC to go though, so don't -


don't sweat it. You got - -

SPY-EVA I got - No, keep it coming. Keep it coming.

PLT-EVA Okay. I wasn't sure you saw it yet.

SPT-EVA Yes, I got it.

- PLT-EVA Say when.

SPT-EVA When. Okay. Think - think how that works.

CDR Okay, you want to clamp it on the solar shield


there, Ed.

SPY-EVA Okay, retract, Bill.

PLT-EVA Okay, retract.

326 19 25 4h CDR And you want to fold the hook when you get it
back, Bill. Retract fully and fold.

PLT-EVA Roger.
27B

SI_-_A Okay, check and deploy, enabled. It's all the wsT,
clockwise.

CDR 7 seconds per rev, Ed.

SPT-EVA Yes.

SPT-EVA Must come out of the shoes to do this one.

SPT-EVA Okay, I'm going to have to open this thing up a


little bit before I can get it on.

326 19 26 B2 FLT-EVA That's it. The hook's folded.

CDR Okay.

SPT-EVA Okay, I'm putting it right in the exact position


it was previously.

CDR Okay, good.

SPT-EVA Which is very easy to see.

SPT-EVA Tighten it down here. Okay, that's ... right


_-- tight. MY tetheroff.

SPT-EVA I'm going to have to come out of this one foot


restraint here. Okay, read on, sir.

CDR Okay, it says, rotate the crank slowly counterclock-


wise to open the arms, 7 seconds per rev.

SPY-EVA 0kay.

SPT-EVA You know, that's not such a bad thing now that -
now that I'm actually out here doing it because
you can feel Just a little bit of resistance,
which is all the - you're working against all of
that mechanical advantage they built into this
thing. You got -

326 19 28 42 SPT-EVA I think most of these first few revs here - or


most of the revs are involved in iJnlocking this.

326 19 29 16 SPY-EVA Got a fair amount of inertia to it. Get it going


a little bit fast, that thing will slow down to
where it will hold that speed for you for the ***
CDR Okay, Ed, when you get finished, there's a re-
straint there that you want to fasten to the
handle.

SPT-EVA Roger. I understand.

396 19 30 09 PLT-EVA It looks like something's starting to happen.

SPT-EVA Yes. Most of that first few revs there -

PLT-EVA Dang it.

SPT-EVA You got a lot of mechanical advantage in the lock.

326 19 30 23 CDR How's your coolant feel, gang?

SPT-EVA Mine's okay.

PLT-EVA EV-I 's okay.

CDR Good show. Good.

SPT-EVA Okay.

CDR Okay, Houston. We're just getting the S149 panels


deployed.

326 19 30 47 CC Okay, very good. We're talking to you through


Ascension. We've got about 4-1/2 minutes to LOS.

CDR Roger. And our coolant flow is - all pretty good,


too.

CC Okay, we've about concluded that it's a turbine-


type flow transducer which is similar to the ones
in the TCV A and B lines that we've had trouble
with before.

CDR Okay.

PLT-EVA Let me stop here and get my wrist tether pinned


down here so I don't happen to hit anything with it.

326 19 31 25 PLT-EVA Sure has a composite of the many different sam-


ples. Look at them all.

CC CDR, this is Houston. Over.

CDR Go ahead, Houston.


275

CC Roger. We've been tracking your progress through


the EVA here, and it seems to us to be quite a ways
ahead of the time line. And we think everything's
going along beautifUlly. Consequently, we see no
reason for you not to go ahead with S19B operations
when you come to it, if you concur. And we've got
a half an hour LOS coming up here before Carnarvon.
So we're going to go ahead and give you a GO for
19B at the present time. Over.

CDR Okay, Bruce. Thank you.

$PT-EVA Those are the words that we wanted to hear, Bruce.


Thank you.

PLT-EVA Thank you ....

CC You' re welcome, welcome, welcome.

CDR D-day.

326 19 32 16 PLT-EVA Get to work on the shady side for a while.

CC Incidentally, the wives called in earlier this


morningand wanted me to pass up Thanksgiving
greetings to you all. I told them I'd work it in
at a convenient place, so I guess this is it.

PLT-EVA Very good. Pass it back to them.

SPT-EVA Thank you, Bruce. Sorry to miss Thanksgiving with


the folks, but we'll make up for it Christmas.

- CC (Laughter)

CDR Tell them to have a little oyster gravy for us, or


oyster dressing for us.

CC Will do, Jer.

326 19 32 43 SPT-EVA I tell you one thing I'm thankful for is we've
got a bunch of people in this country who are
enthused enough about this - got enough people
going to put it all together and make it work.
It's a good thing. I think we all ought to be
proud of it.

CC Yes, indeed. You said a mouthful there, Ed.


276

326 19 33 02 SPT-EVA Okay, 149 is deployed.

CDR Okay, Ed - -

SPT-EVA Hold on. Let me put the locks.

CDR Right. Fasten your restraints.

SPT-EVA Okay. That's fastened.

CDR Okay. Egress the VT foot restraints and proceed


to FAS area. Bill, you want to manage his LSU as
he's coming back.

PLT-EVA Stand by. Let me get up to a position where I can


get my left foot out.

SPT-EVA Okay. Is the friendly DAC grinding?

PLT-EVA It is. And watch your head. You're on one of the


149 panels. That's it.

SPT-EVA Yes, I know.

PLT-EVA Got to move down. If I start cinching you up too


tight -

B26 19 34 12 CC Skylab, this is Houston; 1 minute to LOS. Next


station contact at 26 minutes through Carnarvon
at 20:00 even. And we'll be dumping the data/voice
tape recorder there. Out.

_ PLT-EVA Okay, Jer.

CDR Say again, Bill?

PLT-EVA What do we have coming up next?

CDR Coming up is D024.

SPT-EVA Oh, yes.

PLT-EVA Ah, yes. 01d D024.

326 19 34 51 CDR It says here, when you get there, you're going
to remove two pieces of tape from the D024 con-
tainer holding the twinpole sail samples.

SPT-EVA Okay, how's my umbilical look?


_ 277

PLT-EVA It looks okay. Do you want more slack?

SPT-EVA No, I feel okay.

PLT-EVA That D - that's not D024 down there, is it?

SPT-EVA Stand by - stand by - -

CDR Should be down at Bill's feet.

SPT-EVA Yes. Stand by.

PLT-EVA Oh, Ed's Just looking down there at something; I


see.

PLT-EVA Turn around and wave at the folks, Ed.

SPT-EVA Oh, I was looking down to see where my umbilical


is.

PLT-EVA Oh, okay.

SPT-EVA Boy, that's a nuisance.


f_

PLT-EVA Okay, we'll plug on - -

SPT-EVA ... That thing is completely - completely out of


my field of view.

326 19 36 12 PLT-EVA Oh, okay. It's pretty interest *** you know, on
that 228 vent *** floated out. It must be out-
gassing inside.

CDR I didn't hear what you said, Bill.

PLT-EVA The foil on the 228.

CDR Yes?

PLT-EVA It's already puffed up. One side that I can see
is inflated. Appears to be inflated.

CDR Hell_, Big Ed.

SPT-EVA *** Jer, now hold on; let me take a look at our
228. Yes, you're right. That is inflated. What
it - what it 's outgassing from. There 's one thing
I also wanted to do while I was here. And that's
fix this thing so that it is perfectly normal to
_ the Sun or *** parallelto the rays.
278

PLT-EVA Okay, watch the DAC.

SPT-EVA I think I'm going to have to go down there and


make an adjustment in the - There, that's perfect.
You can actually see now, the shadowing there.
Hello, J. Carr.

326 19 37 21 CDR Hello, dere.

SPT-EVA Actually have - in the shadowing there - the bolts


on the 228.

PLT-EVA *** gassing.

SPT-EVA Okay, I've got that thing perfectly normal for the -
perfectly parallel to the Sun's rays.

CDR Good show.

SPT-EVA Okay. Now -

CDR D024.

SPT-EVA Let me get organized


here.

CDR Go down and get yourself in position. Assume the


po-si-ti-6n, monsieur.

SPT-EVA Okay, now there's a cuff tether on that thing,


is there not? Go put that on my D-ring, please.

326 19 38 06 PLT-EVA *** off, is it? Not all the way. But I know
- you can - I know from experiencethatyou can't
open that.

SPT-EVA Watch my feet.

PLT-EVA I'll watch them. Just press on. I'll -

SPT-EVA Okay, Jer. Go ahead and read.

CDR Okay, there's a couple of pieces of tape on that


container that you're supposed to take off.

SPT-EVA Okay. Where's the - where's that all being put?

CDR It doesn't say where to put them, you know that?


It Just says, Just remove the tape.
279

SPT-EVA Well, no. That's all right. I can remove the


tape, but where do I put the other pieces, though?
There's a couple of pieces of gray tape they got
here holding the whole thing on.

CDR Yes, it says here - Let me read it to you.

SPT-EVA 0kay.

326 19 39 01 CDR It says: Remove two pieces of tape from D02_ con-
tainer holding twinpole sail samples. And that's
it. It says: Samples will be held to the D02_ lid
with tape.

SPT-EVA Yes, hold on.

CDR In parentheses.

SPT-EVA I think I've got it. Just let me - let me work


it here. I tell you what, Bill, if you could hold
my feet, I would not have to worry about steadily
positioning myself and I could - -

PLT-EVA Let me turn the DAC off.

SPT-EVA Okay, get the DAC off.

PLT-EVA Fold it out of the way so I don't worry about it.

326 19 39 33 SPT-EVA Okay, now if you'll Just hold on to my feet.

PLT-EVA 0kay.

SPT-EVA Just a second now. Hold on Just a little hit -


I won't be putting any forces on it, so it shouldn't
be - No, wait a minute. No, you don't have to
come out ; get back in the shoes.

PLT-EVA Well, I got one shoe in.

SPT-EVA Oh, okay. 0kay.

CDR All right now, Ed. I'll read you the procedure
here. It says: Pull the twinpole sail samples,
two of the, from the clear plastic and install them
on the A side of D024 panel; disk panel, toward the
Sun.
280

326 19 40 02 SPT-EVA Well, with great skill and cunning, they left that
gray tape on this - on this thing.

SPT-EVA Okay, now put me hack down over there.

SPT-EVA A side, towards the Sun?

CDR Right.

326 19 40 44 SPT-EVA Now that's not going to be normal to the Sun. Let's
see, we're going to make all our installations on
the beam. Would you verify that?

CDR Yes, that 's right.

SPT-EVA *** path to the world. One of them in.

SPT-EVA This is like handling flypaper.

CDR (Laughter)

SPT-EVA Okay. Now let me torque myself up this way, Bill,


because I can't move my hands any more. Feet up
towards the top. Let go a little bit.

PLT-EVA Let me get back in my restraint.

326 19 _l 56 SPT-EVA Okay. They're on there. It's not - I Just got a


slight overlap on the two of them, m_be about
one-eighth of an inch leading up to zero. I'd say
that maybe 1-percent overlap or so at the most
between the two Of them. Now let me take my pin
here, which I had to pull out. Let's try to get
- thatout of the way.

CDR All right.

SPT-EVA Now what am I supposed to do with the extra pieces


that I've got here?

CDR Well, it doesn't say. Now that -that's the extra


pieces of gray tape, right?

SPT-EVA Gray tape and -

326 19 _2 43 SPT-EVA Gray tape and the pieces of plastic which have come
off to expose the sticky surface.
281
f_

CDR They very adroitly avoided that question. I'd


suggest - if you can, hand them to Bill and may-
be he can hang onto them until one of you could
get to a pocket - tuck them in a pocket.

SPT-EVA Tell you what, toss them back in the airlock,


if you can, Bill. Okay?

PLT-EVA Okay.

SPT-EVA Now, let me go back out here and try to get this -
That's one I don't need out of the way. Okay.
I'm - I'm good. Now D024. I tell you what, Bill.
No, go ahead and do what you're going to do.

PLT-EVA I know what I'll do. I'll put them on the VS.
That'll get rid of them.

SPT-EVA Okay, now there's also a little piece of tape here.

PLT-EVA Now Just wait a minute.

SPT-EVA Take it off.

PLT-EVA Where ?

SPT-EVA See right there? There's a tab there. There you


go. Okay, Jer, read on for D024 ops.

326 19 43 56 CDR Okay. It says: In - Insert container into panel B


and remove tether, install pip pin.

SPT-EVA Okay, in work.

SPT-EVA It's all little finger exercises.

CDR Yes. Bill gets to do it on 193.

CDR You guys realize this is the first time we've been
ahead of the ha - time line since we've got up
here?

SPT-EVA I'll tell you one reason is we're doing something


we were trained to do.

326 19 45 06 CDR (Laughter) I'll tell you, all that stowage Mickey
Mouse was really something.
282

PLT-EVA I've run into more things I've never seen before.

PLT-EVA Sure disgusting about that - I hate to see something


like that not work out, though. It's an interface
problem.

326 19 46 00 PLT_EVA I might as well get a few shots of you slaving


away there on the D02_ **_

SPT-EVA Bill, you're beginning to cut in and out again.

PLT-EVA Okay.

SPT-EVA I'll tell you, putting that pip pin in ain't no


easy Job. There we go. Got it'

CDR Okay. Now. Lift latch handles, two, on the con-


tainer, rotate counterclockwise, and lift the
cover.

326 19 46 27 SPT-EVA Okay. Let me - What I think I'm going to do now


is tether myself to this thing. I was noticing
there ought to be some - that's really good - a
good handrail up here to put my feet around. --
Okay. And let me tether this thing.

PLT-EVA What are the settings on the DAC again, Jer? I


think they may have changed.

CDR You mean the -

PLT-EVA Oh, f/ll. Oh-oh.

326 19 46 56 SPT-EVA Yes, you didn't get a chance to check them, did
you, Bill?

CDR f/ll and 500, and 6 frames per second.

PLT-EVA f-stop changed on us.

SPT-EVA Okay. They're open. Go ahead.

326 19 h7 17 CDR Okay. Place wrist tether on strip panel handle -


large hole - and remove from the containers.

SPT-EVA Okay. That 's in work.

CDR Bill, that's f/ll, 500.


/_ 283

PLT-EVA Do they give you a - a focus distance?

CDR Infinity.

PLT-EVA Infinity.

326 19 47 40 CDR If you're going to work close here, you can change
it.

PLT-EVA I think with the wide-angle lens like - that's the


reason I didn't.

SPT-EVA Okay, Jer, I'm extracting it, and I've got the
wrist tether on and locked and I'm extracting.

CDR All right.

SPT-EVA Where do I put it?

326 19 47 57 CDR All righty. It say [sic] here: Snap the strip
panel to the B side nearest the container, handle
toward the FAS work station, and remove wrist
tether.

PLT-EVA Okay, and I know they don't want my little


fingerprints -

CDR We're coming up on sunset.

326 19 48 50 SPT-EVA *** the same old problem - stablizing your feet -
stabilizing your body while you're trying to do a
two-handed task - in restraints.

SPT-EVA Tell you what, Bill, can you hold - lean forward
and stabilize my feet again?

PLT-EVA Okay. I'll turn the DAC off here. Just a sec-
ond.

SPT-EVA Down.

326 19 49 24 SPT-EVA Okay, I'm drifting away from that now. There you
go.

SPT-EVA I need to get up further on it.

PLT-EVA Higher?
284

SPT-EVA Yes.

PLT-EVA Okay °

326 19 50 03 SPT-EVA Okay.

PLT-EVA Now the foot restraints.

SPT-EVA What I'm going to do, I'm going to eventually put


a pip pin in this here, am I not, Jer?

CDR Let 's see here.

SPT-EVA How' s this?

326 19 50 13 CDR Yes, that's right.

SPT-EVA Right. Okay, what I'm going to do is take the


pip pin and put it through *** first.

PLT-EVA Is this all right, Ed?

SPT-EVA Yes, that 's good.

326 19 50 38 CDR Got 2 hours now, guys, 2 hours and 5 minutes.

SPT-EVA Okay, now let me bend down here a little bit so I


can see what -

PLT-EVA I'm having to keep my eyes closed because I'm facing


the Sun. Tell me which way you want me to move.

_ 326 19 50 52 SPT-EVA Okay. Now. Now I'm in business, I think. *** I


did was putting the pip pin in first. There we go!

CDR Got it in?

SPT-EVA Yes. I thought that might work, and it did. Okay,


I got it in there.

326 19 51 07 CDR All right. Now it says put your tether on the disk
panel and remove it from the container.

SPT-EVA Okay, this is the same exercise all over again.

CDR Right.
285

SF2-_A *** you'll remnd me before I leave here, I want to


straighten these extra pip pins out for the other
side so they're not shading that panel.

B26 19 51 29 SPT-EVA *** up at this angle, Bill?

PLT-EVA Say again.

SPT-EVA l'm okay. Let me use mine.

PLT-EVA That Sun really heats up the - the tips of -

SPT-EVA Yes, I can feel things all the ray through to the
glove as I 're been handling them.

326 19 52 i0 SPT-EVA Okay. *** your work. Okay, Jer, l'm pulling out
the disk panels now.

CDR Okay.

PLT-EVA *** Go now, Ed.

SPT-EVA Can you hold my feet so l'm stable?

326 19 52 40 PLT-EVA Well, I can hold one foot - -

SPT-EVA Yes, I will not be putting any forces on this.

PLT-EVA Whoops' I Just - snapped free. Give me a second


to restabilize myself.

326 19 53 18 SPT-EVA Okay. Now, Bill, I want to move down, eye level
with the panel here.

PLT-EVA *** reference to your body.

SPT-EVA Can you hold me now?

PLT-EVA I thought I was.

SP_-EVA *** time line for this one.

326 19 54 44 PLT-EVA How are you reading me on VOX now, Jerry?

CDR Oh, you're still breaking up a bit.

PLT-EVA Okay.

SPY-EVA Can't say I didn't predict it.

_ PLT-EVA *** to push you out a little farther?


286

SPT-EVA No, no.

SPT-EVA Got to align these film -

326 19 55 44 CDR Sure does take a lot of time for such a little
bitty old experiment, doesn't it?

SPT-EVA Darn it. I had that pin in there and I -

SPT-EVA *** on to me - -

PLT-EVA Can I help you any way, Ed?

326 19 56 56 SPT-EVA No. Just hold on to me. I'm getting it lined up


now. Okay, Just hold on to me, Bill. You keep
me stable, I can do it.

PLT-EVA Okay, I'm holding hard.

SPT-EVA Other way. Tell you what, I'm going to have to


change my wrist - my waist, or my chest tether
here to pull me down to that thing, because
there's no way - Get out in front of me.

326 19 58 16 SPT-EVA Okay. Now I think I stand a chance. You Just


stabilize -

SPT-EVA Tell you what, I'm going to tighten up on that


tether a little bit more again - start ***ing.

326 20 O0 19 CC CDR, this is Houston through Carnarvon for l0 min-


utes, and when you have a moment, we would like to
- get the MPC ROLL switchto INHIBIT. We'll be
dumping the date/voice tape recorder here. Over.

CDR Okay, Houston. Right now, we're work - still


working D024. It's kind of slow work.

CC Roger. We copy.

326 20 01 27 PLT-EVA Frustrating work.

CC Roger. Out.

PLT-EVA Sorry, Bruce. I was talking to Ed. I'm watching


him try to - simple one-g task is infinitely diffi-
cult in zero g here.
287
/,._.

SPT-EVA Kind of like - -

B26 20 01 48 CC We were just - -

SPT-EVA - - kind of like threading a needle - -

CC - - we were Just - -

SPT-EVA - - with a boxing glove.

CC We were Just smypathizingwith your plight.

326 20 02 49 PLT-EVA You trying to engage snaps? Is that what it is?

SPT-EVA Yes. See, you're trying to engage snaps and I


get this thing - thing completely lined up and _**

PLT-EVA *** don't know why anyone'd design anything like


that.

SPT-EVA Well, see the thing was, this was made not for ***
I think it was made strictly for retrieval.

SPT-EVA Yes .... --

SPT/PLT- ...
EVA

SPT-EVA Look, I'm going to give it one more go and then


what we're going to do is go on inside and get
that little extra piece of gray tape that we've
got and we're going to tape the mother on here.

326 20 0B 19 CDR Can you just pip pin it without snapping it?

SPT-EVA I tried that, Jer, and the pip pin won't hold
until it gets -

CDR Doggone it. That's too bad.

326 20 03 29 SPT-EVA Hey, now wait a minute. Hey, all it needed was a
little body inertia against it.

CDR You got it?

j_
288 _.

SPT-EVA Hold on. Ah, hold on. Ah! I had it too.

326 20 03 50 PLT-EVA Here, let me hold your leg.

SPT-EVA Okay. Press.

PLT-EVA Try not to kick me in the visor. That's okay.


Your foot's clear now.

326 20 03 57 CC CDR, this is Houston. All systems are looking


good on board, and we show you about an hour ahead
of your anticipated position in the EVA time line.

CDR Roger. Thank you. We are trying to catch up though,


aren't we, gang?

SPT-EVA I tell you, these little snap holes don't look as


though they're - they take these size snaps. I'll
give them a go and then we're going to try and
tape it on here.

326 20 04 27 SPT-EVA Tell you what _ we got that Sl- we got a whole roll
of that tape in there in S149, don't we?

PLT-EVA 93, you mean?

SPT-EVA That's right, 1 -193. That's right.

PLT-EVA Yes. You want me to get you a piece of tape?

SPT-EVA Go ... - -

326 20 04 _h PLT-EVA I'll have to _in_oll that dang thing, though, - -

SPT-EVA Yes.

PLT-EVA - - my tool pouches.

SPT-EVA Yes, I know.

CDR How about a piece of that silver tape? Can you


spare one of those?

PLT-EVA Yes, but I still have to nn_oll it. If he doesn't


get it this time, we'll do that.

326 20 Oh 50 SI_T-EVA *** time on this. This is a real killer. ***


another hour on this thing.
289

CC Bill, we're GO for taping it from down here and


there is tape in the pouch in the airlock with
the scissors, next to 316. You don't have to un-
roll the S193 bag there.

PLT-EVA Okay. That's right. I took that out. I stowed


that myself. The small roll of tape.

B26 20 05 52 SPT-EVA Okay. Now Just hold on there, guys. Give - -

PLT-EVA I'll hold you once more here.

CDR Oh, you know what, though? I don't think that


small roll of tape - I think we pulled that out
for something. Didn't we? Ed, you remember when
you said yesterday, "Well, Just put the small
roll of tape in there, we never use it anyway."
And I said, "Yes, Ed, you're right. We'll never
use that tape."

r 326 20 06 49 SPT-EVA Now don't make a move, anybody. Don't breathe.


Ah, (laughter) oh. Hey, you know that - I think
I've been snapping it all right the way they ask.
_ But the pip pin, for some reason, doesn'twant to
stay in there.

CDR Well, why don't you go ahead and get the tape and
give it a whirl?

PLT-EVA Standby, Ed.

CDR We've blown about 25 minutes on this thing now


already.

B26 20 07 23 SPT-EVA Yes. That's it --

CDR ... - -

SPT-EVA - - all we're going to do is one. It's just not


designed for -

PLT-EVA Yes, I'll try that pouch.

CDR It is 316, Bill. It's right next to panel B16.


That's the one.

326 20 07 50 SPT-EVA Okay. I'll tell you, Bruce, I was able to get the
strip ones on real well. But the disk ones, for
290

some reason, I get it all lined up, push down and


I feel it snap in there and then as soon as I Just
lightly touch the safety tether that's on it and
try to remove my tether from it, it Just falls
right off again. I'm not sure whether the - we
got an interface problem. It sure appeared that
way to me. What would have been helpful is to
have a - the pip pin which we put through the
center so that it would snap without ever having
to have the other snaps in there, so that we
could Just put the pip pin through and doesn't
matter whether this thing floats a quarter of an
inch off the plate at all. It's still going to
be at the right angle. I'm afraid in this proc-
ess, there's a couple of these things we shouldn't
have touched.

326 20 08 41 CDR That EVA - Does that silver tape not have a - -

SPT-EVA Make sure of it - -

CDR - - not have a - a tab on it?

326 20 08 46 CC Okay, did you verify that the assembly is cocked


properly and the words are getting down here, you
should be able to put the pip pin all the way
through and hold it in place with Just the pip
pin, if you push hard enough on it. Over.

SPT-EVA Well, okay. Let me - I got a good chest tether


up here, Bruce, which is right next to the work
and- -

PLT-EVA Go.

326 20 09 08 SPT-EVA - - Now whenever you guys can answer something


for me on that pip pin, which I push in the center
there, and release right in the center release,
which releases the balls at the end. Now if I - -

326 20 09 19 CDR Slow and easy, Bill.

SPT-EVA - - if I push doe on that, then let up real


quick, will I expect to see that pip pin come
roaring out - back at me or should I try and push
on the - the wider part around the - wider part
around - -
f_ 291

CC I- -

SPT-EVA - - that releases - -

326 20 09 B8 CC You should try pushing on the wider part as you


release the - the release plunger.

SPT-EVA Okay, I'll try that, Bruce. It may work.

326 20 09 _5 CC And we got about B0 seconds to LOS, here. Next


station contact in 4 minutes is G_,_ at 20:14.

SPT-EVA Bill, look in that pouch. You might see some gray
tape in there.

CC And if you continue having troubles with it, why,


Just go ahead and tape the thing, and let's press
on to other activities.

326 20 i0 02 SPT-EVA l'm with you.


P
CDR Has that got a tab on it, Bill?

PLT-EVA *** a second. (Laughter) I can't even see the


endof thetape.

CDR You know we were in such a hurry after putting on


all those things on 193, I think it Just got thrown
in there without having a tab put on it. Try the
gray tape.

326 20 ll 22 SPT-EVA Okay, guys, it's there.

- PLT-EVA Hey, that's great. (Laughter)

SPT-EVA But let me tell you something. I got some finger-


marks. The only way I could do it. I tried pushing
on the outside of that pip pin, the center, that
part 's marked for thumb, - -

PLT-EVA Yes.

SPT-EVA - - and several of them and I couldn't - couldn't


line it up. So I Just had to take the bull by the
horns, lined it all up square and put my thumb
right on the center of those things. Right in the
center - there's four of them right in the center.
Sorry about that, but that's the only way we could
do it.
292 _.

326 20 12 00 CDR Okay. Soon as Ed gets that stuff - or Bill gets


that stuff put away, he'll be right out after - -

SPT-EVA I hope that ... will be useful to them.

PLT-EVA Now we ought - another thing we need to do is put


a tab on this zipper pull.

326 20 12 i0 CDR That's right. It's a good point.

SPT-EVA Okay, Bill, coming back your way.

CDR Your next exercise, Ed, is to put the 230 - $230


collector and - and install it.

SPT-EVA Oh, yes. Okay.

SPT-EVA Let's see - -

PLT-EVA That is the EVA pouch.

SPT-EVA Get my hearings here.

B26 20 13 03 CDR Bill'scomingout now, Ed.

SPT-EVA 0kay.

PLT-EVA Well, let's see now. We're getting all twisted up.

SPT-EVA Let me back off a little bit here so you can see.

326 20 13 28 PLT-EVA Right where you are.

SPT-EVA Hold on, hold on. Now Just stay where you are.
Now I'll get my umbilical over your feet. Ah,
now you've gotten - Okay, now just stay where you
are, Bill, okay? Stay where you are and let me
unsnake you. Okay, now that - my umbilical which
you have rammed back in there - now come here.
Bring your left - left leg over toward me. Left
leg. Other left leg.

326 20 i_ 07 CC Skylab, this is Houston through Guam for 9 min-


utes. Out. •
293

CDR Okay, Bruce, D024's installed and the explanation


of how he did it is on the tape recorder.

CC Beautiful, baby.

SPT-EVA Okay, let me - hand me - ... No that's not going


to - Bill, you've got to come out of there for a
moment.

CDR Okay, Bill and Ed, I don't think we're going to


have to take the Nikon out at all because it calls
for the - in the checklist here, for Bill to take
handhled pictures of you doing the 230 work, Ed.
He can Just hand you the camera stud you can take
a - a DAC shot of what you did - show where the
clips are.

SPT-EVA All right. Well, let's just take a look at that


idea. Now, Bill, how does that umbilical look?

326 20 15 02 PLT-EVA Still looks pretty bad.

SPT-EVA Well, now, hold on. Hold on. You're okay. You
Just hop in the shoes because 8/1 the umbilical's
_ in front of you. Tell me when you're in there.

PLT-EVA Okay.

SPT-EVA Okay, now. Let's figure this out. Let me just


move out here slowly so we can see what the geometry
of it is.

_ 326 20 15 33 SPT-EVA Okay, where - oh, it don't look too bad.

PLT-EVA Okay, I've got this one going around me.

SPT-EVA All rlght, that's free. Now. Tell you what you
do. The only - the only entanglement you got now
is the one where my umbilical is hooked into the -
my umbilical is hooked into the clamp there. Just
un clamp it.

PLT-EVA No, wait a minute. That's mine.

SPT-EVA ... - -

PLT-EVA Here's your umbilical.


29_

326 20 16 14 SPT-EVA Hold on. Now wait a minute. Wait a minute. Just
stay where you are. Yes.

PLT-EVA Come out and let's see how they do it. If you
won't move any, I think I can get free.
(Laughter)

PLT-EVA I've heard of a bucket of wo***

326 20 17 12 SPT-EVA Okay, Bill. Gee! How does that look?

PLT-EVA Looks clean to me - -

SPT-EVA Okay, now get back up - -

PLT-EVA ... the shoes.

SPT-EVA - - get yourself back in the shoes. Now get my


umbilical straightened out and take the end which
is clamped, and start feeding it into the aft end
of the airlock.

PLT-EVA Okay, just stand by 1.

326 20 18 01 SPT-EVA Are you free of it, are you?

PLT-EVA No.

SPT-EVA Okay, now, I'll start coming back up your way.


Now, the 230 collector, can you get that out of
there?

PLT-EVA It's in work.

326 20 18 23 SPT-EVA Okay. And I'll go under - underneath D-4 here.

CDR You need any words from me on that 230?

SPT-EVA Yes, I could use some.

CDR All right. You at the area with it now?


295

SPT-EVA Negative.

CDR Okay.

SPT-EVA *** straightened out here, I'ii be right with you.

326 20 19 52 SPT-EVA Okay, now. I've got to get back up here and keep
my 11mbilical free of 228.

SPT-EVA ... need a wrist tether there.

SI_-EVA That's both of them. Okay. Now let go. Okay,


Jer; go ahead.

326 20 20 25 CDR All right. It says, remove the wrist tether from
the double handle and place it on the protective
cover handle. And then remove the protective
c over s.

PLT-EVA ...

SPT-EVA Jer, let's hear that once again, please.

CDR It says, remove the wrist tether from the double


s- handle and place it on the protective cover
handle. Well, it's not on the double handle.

326 20 21 07 SPT-EVA I know how Don wants it.

CDR Okay, Just do it that way, then.

SPT-EVA If I could turn loose of that thing *** on here.

CC Roger. We're reading you loud and clear, Ed.

CDR You got two clips to remove. You place one of


them on the D-2 handrail and then you - -

326 20 21 38 SPT-EVA Stop. Hold on.

CDR Okay.

SPT-EVA That's a little - little ways downstream here.

CC Skylab, this is Houston. One minute until LOS.


Next station contact in 16-1/2 minutes through
Goldstone at 20:38. Out.
296

326 20 22 30 SPT-EVA Looks like it's on. Now I believe I can take
that protective cover off.

PLT-EVA Okay. You - -

SPT-EVA That's on - -

PLT-EVA .....

SPT-EVA - - And I did not touch a frapping little bit of


it.

PLT-EVA Very good.

SPT-EVA It looks good.

PLT-EVA I can see his test patch.

CC Roger. Sounds good to us too.

326 20 23 20 CDR Now, if you'll hand those - that cover to Bill,


then I'll tell you where to put the clips and
things.

SPT-EVA Okay, Bill.

PLT-EVA Just a minute. If you'll Just hold onto that and


I'll give you a wrist tether for it.

PLT-EVA Okay, why don't you tether that down there then?

326 20 24 i0 SPT-EVA Okay, Jerry, read on.

CDR Okay, it says: Remove two clips installed on the


old collector. You place one on the D-2 handrail
- and then I'll tell you where to place the other
one.

SPT-EVA Put them on the D-2 handrail.

CDR Right.

326 20 24 32 SPT-EVA Seven - two. Friendly D-2. Got to remember that.

CDR Try to be careful not to scratch that visor any


more.

CDR Looks like your umbilical's kind of hanging you


up, Ed.
297

326 20 25 i0 SPT-EVA No, I'm - I'm Just leaning around here trying to
find D-2.

CDR Is D-2 over there on the other side? The other


side of - from your left hand? Is that it?

SPT-EVA Here?

CDR Yes.

CDH Okay, watch out for your tether. It's going to


drag over 230. Man, you're up to your elbows in
tethers aren't you?

SPT-EVA Yes.

326 20 25 39 CDR I would take that waist tether that's flying free,
if you can, and hook it onto something else there
that - maybe the other part of the other tether
or something.

SPT-EVA Yes, I think what I'm going to have to do is that,


Jet, I'm going - I'm Just going to - If I don't take
_ these tethers off, I stand a chance of dragging
them across there.

CDR That's right. Specially that waist tether. That's


a real bother.

326 20 26 05 SPT-EVA We'll need that later, but not right now. Okay,
Bill, I need a little assistance.

PLT-EVA Okay, let me put the DAC up here.

SPT-EVA What I want to do is to take off these wrist


tethers.

CDR How much film does it look like was left on there,
Bill? Do you get to see - to look at it?

326 20 26 35 SPT-EVA Okay, that one is on there.

SPT-EVA That one's on there. Now take my wrist - take


my chest one off, if you can, and tether that
somewhere.

PLT-EVA Okay. Just a second.


298

326 20 27 13 SPT-EVA Okay. It's done, Jerry.

CDR Okay, looked like you had the right idea out there
on the other side.

SPT-EVA Okay. Just read on, through I'm - I'm - I'm not
too sure exactly what we're do want with them.

CDR All right. Now you - Just take one - one clip and
get it out of the way is all you're doing. Clip
it on this - on the handrail somehwere.

326 20 27 40 SPY-EVA Okay, we've done that.

CDR Okay, now the other clip, here's where it goes:


Place the other clip on the new collector next to
the spool with joint bracket away from the MDA,
outboard.

SPY-EVA _** some other words after that too, isn't there?

CDR No, that 's it.

326 20 27 57 SPT-EVA - Antisolardirection?

CDR Minus-Z.

SPT-EVA All right, that 's antisolar. Away from the MDA.

SPT-EVA Okay, now let's hear the other - the beginning words.

CDR All right, here we go: Place the other clip on


_ the - on the new collector next to the spool Joint
bracket, minus-Z, away from the MDA, outboard.

326 20 28 29 SPT-EVA I assume that means right close to there. Now


let's - let me see.

SPY-EVA Ah, now that one doesn't slide all the way down
does it? That's as far down as it goes. It
shades but it doesn't touch.

CDR Is the Sun behind you now?

SPY-EVA Yes.

CDR Okay.
_. 299

SPT-EVA But now wait a minute, you wanted it on the -

326 20 28 56 PLT-EVA You better put it on the small one there, Ed.

SPT-EVA That's right. That's right.

CDR Watch your heels, Ed. You're right next to the


window.

326 20 29 07 SPT-EVA Okay. That is minus-Z if I've ever seen minus-Z


and that, I think, will do it.

SPT-EVA 0kay. It 's there. Press.

CDR Okay. Translate to the VF and ingress. While


you're there, Ed, if you can somehow get yourself
in position, have Bill hand you the DAC and you
can take some pictures of it.

326 20 29 29 PLT-EVA I've already done that.

SPT-EVA Well, no, wait a minute, we need the pictures from


over here.

CDR They got to be normal to it so you can locate it


within a millimeter, Bill.

326 20 29 42 CDR Can Bill hold your feet, kind of stick you out
there, and let you take a picture of it?

SPT-EVA I tell you what, we're looking into the Sun. That's
the problem with this one.

CDR Yes. Well, that's strange. I thought this was


supposed to be on the Sun side.

326 20 29 54 SPT-EVA No, it's anti - anti-Sun. I - I talked to Don


about that one.

CDR Oh, okay.

SPT-EVA I 'm sure .... - -

CDR I'll tell you what. Let's see how far it is until
sunset. Maybe we can set the DAC for night. I've
got some night settings in here, but - you could
take the picture after sunset.
300

326 20 30 13 SPT-EVA No, I'ii tell you what. It don't - It doesn't


take much of anything to click off a few frames
at various f-stops. It's bound to get one. What
I want to do - -

PLT-EVA Yes.

SPT-EVA - - is tether it, though, to m_ right hand.

CDR Okay.

SPT-EVA Put it to f--

PLT-EVA Okay - -

SPT-EVA -- to -

326 20 30 46 SPT-EVA Okay, now could you make sure my feet don't drift
away here.

PLT-EVA Roger.

SPT-EVA Oh, I see. I see what you've done. You've done


mywork.

PLT-EVA Ed, do you read me?

326 20 31 lh SPT-EVA Yes, I got you.

PLT-EVA Okay.

SPT-EVA Okay. Now -

PLT-EVA All right, now I've got it set up on - f/8 ... - -

SPT-EVA Let me set the trigger.

PLT-EVA Okay.

326 20 31 38 PLT-EVA I had it set up on f -

SPT-EVA Now, would you hold my feet please?

PLT-EVA What ?

SPT-EVA Would you *** my feet Just a moment while I look


this thing over? Okay, you got her set for 2 feet.
That 's good.
301

CDR Yes, all he needs is one good frame and he's in


business.

SPT-EVA All right.

PLT-EVA Have to watch it though when you push the button


you'll change - *** - -

SPT-EVA I understand that.

326 20 32 05 PLT-EVA - - if you're not very careful. I've had to


continually reset that thing - -

SPT-EVA Okay let it go for - -

PLT-EVA -- ... camera.

SPT-EVA - - for 2 frames a second. And what's the time


here you got?

SPT-EVA Okay, I think we'll probably go 250th.

PLT-EVA I'll put your feet into position, I think - u_N


J-- right position for taking the photographs.

326 20 32 55 SPT-EVA Okay, there you go. *** for me. We're in.

SPT-EVA Okay. Grind them ***

PLT-EVA That'd be the perfect ending. A11 he needs is


something he can estab - fix his geometry with.

SPT-EVA Roger. Okay, now let me Just change the f-stop


a little bit.

326 20 33 35 SPT-EVA 5.6, we'll give them a little bit.

CDR Okay, let's get on with it now. Let's don't get


behind.

SPT-EVA Yes, we -we've got it all set up, Jer, and we're -
*** take long.

SPT-EVA The good thing is that you can feel this DAC
operating between - -

PLT-EVA Yes.
302

SPT-EVA - - gloves.

PLT-EVA Yes, that's good.

CDR Okay, let's get back to the FAS area. We got to


hand the trees in, get the DAC stowed - -

SPT-EVA Wait a minute. Wait a minute.

CDR - - get ready to start 193.

SPT-EVA Okay, Just a second.

326 20 34 41 SPT-EVA Okay.

SPT-EVA I think it's off. Let me take a look at that green


light.

PLT-EVA Okay. Let me have it.

SPT-EVA Okay, just pull me in toward you and I'll hand it


to you.

326 20 35 00 CDR All right, Ed, you go on into the - into the AM
now, and Bill will hand you in the tree and stuff.

SPT-EVA Okay. As a matter of fact, I'll Just take this


right in with me.

PLT-EVA Why not?

SPT-EVA Now, all of my stuff is pushed in the back there,


_ huh?

326 20 35 16 CDR Bill, I'm going to go back in the command module


and run up the V0X SENSITIVITY a little more.

PLT-EVA Okay.

CDR You're starting to cut in and out again.

326 20 35 36 SPT-EVA Okay, let me stow this fellow.

326 20 36 17 CDR Okay, Bill give me a short count, rather quiet.

CDR All right, make it a little louder; I didn't hear


a thing.
303

SPT-EVA Bill, are you cutting - Are you reading me?

PLT-EVA Yes, I 'm reading you fine, Ed.

326 20 36 37 SPT-EVA Okay, did you ask Jer - did you hear Jer asking
you for a test count?

PLT-EVA Yes, I was counting.

CDR All right, give - give me another one, Bill.

326 20 36 43 PLT-EVA i, 2, 3, 4, 5.

CDR Okay, start over again, low.

CDR All right, now do it a little louder.

326 20 36 57 PLT-EVA i, 2, 3, 4, 5, 4, 3, 2, I.

CDR Is that a comfortable voice level?

PLT-EVA Yes, I can talk that loud without any trouble.


How' s that now?

326 20 37 04 CDR That looks pretty good now, if it's a comfortable


voice level for you.

PLT -EVA Okay.

326 20 37 Ii CDR All right.

SPT-EVA Hey, Jer, did you get a fire SENSOR in there?

CDR No, I'm not in there. But I haventt heard any


alarms. Why?

SPT-EVA I bet you we did that. Let me -

326 20 37 23 CDR You did what?

SPT_EVA On this panel here, OWS heat excba_er fire


sensor control panel 3 ***, got on SENSOR 2 - -

326 20 37 32 PLT-EVA They're all disabled, Ed. I had disabled them in


my checks yesterday.

SPT-EVA Well, okay. I got a red light on one of them.

PLT-EVA Well, they're disabled - inhibited on the panel.


304 -_.

CDR You probably got a shot of UV or something.

SPT-EVA May want to mention that when we come up.

326 20 37 48 PLT-EVA I - I think it's well documented.

SPT-EVA All right. I wouldn't - I wouldn't feel comfort-


able if we said it again.

PLT-EVA Okay. Go ahead ....

SPT-EVA Wait a minute. Let me get my umbilical. Got a


foot in all this stuff.

326 20 38 ll SPT-EVA My umbilical up to the aft end.

SPT-EVA Okay.

PLT-EVA It's pretty well tidied up in there, Ed - Jerry.

SPT-EVA Yes, start on.

CDR 0kay, and we got a GO for 190 - -

326 20 38 55 CC Skylab, this is Houston through Goldstone, Corpus


Christi, and Merritt Island for 16-1/2 minutes.
0vet.

CDR Okay, Bruce. We're Just getting started on 193.

CC Roger. Where are you on that?

- CDR The very first page, very first word.

CC You're at S193. We've got you.

CDR Okay.

PLT-EVA And say, Jer, do we want to get these trees in


first ?

SPT-EVA Yes, you do.

CDR Yes, you do. I thought they were in.

326 20 39 21 SPT-EVA No.

CDR I stand corrected, Bruce. We still got to get the


VS/VC trees in. Then we'll be ready to go.
305

CC Roger. We're Copying you.

PLT-EVA Thought I was being smart getting rid of that tape


and I'm *_* Pass the ... as soon as you get through
with that. 0ops '

SPT-EVA Oh, and I'm going to have to get down to where


I can see an alignment. Okay, Bill, pass it In.

PLT-EVA Just a second. I'm having to tape these plastic -

326 20 40 30 PLT-EVA I got one. Ah.

SPT-EVA It's all right.

SPT-EVA Okay, they're there. Bruce, we've got the -

CC Go ahead, Ed; we're listening.

SPT-EVA Back on panel - OWS heat exchanger, fire sensor


control panel number 392, a red light on SENSOR 2.

326 20 41 15 CC 392, a red light on SENSOR 2.

SPT-EVA 0kay, Bill.

PLT-EVA Okay, Jerry, you can start reading.

CDR Okay. Ed, egress the AM, head first, face toward
the foot restraint.

SPT-EVA Okay. Now we have not passed out lh0 - the - -

CDR No, you go on and get in the foot restraint?

SPT-EVA 0kay.

PLT-EVA Where am I supposed to be?

326 20 41 41 PLT-EVA I guess we're going to be going back in there. Is


that right? To get it?

SPT-EVA Let's see here. I carry it over there with me; so


I figure I'm going to be the guy who's -

326 20 41 51 PLT-EVA I thought I put the - the foot ...

SPT-EVA No, no - -
306

CO SPT, this is Houston.

SPT-EVA Go ahead.

CC You can Just ignore that fire warning indication.


We have seen that on previous EVAs from that fire
sensor.

SPT-EVA Roger. That's what I've understood. I Just


wanted to document it again.

CC Okay. Thank you.

326 20 42 i0 CDR Okay, Ed, you're supposed to get into the VF foot
restraints.

SPT-EVA Oh - Okay, we're - I'ii get out here, I guess.


What's the starting posture for that thing? q

CDR It doesn't say.

SPT-EVA Oh, I know. Listen, the starting posture for this


thing is if we both have gotten back in here like
we were starting a new EVA.

CDR Oh, yes; that's right.

326 20 42 34 SPT-EVA So I'll tell you what. Read on a little bit and -
a_qd--

CDR Okay.

SPT-EVA - - we might be able to save ourselves an awful lot


of whifferdills.

CDR You're going to - going to shove 35 feet of your


LSU into the FAS behind you. And -

PLT-EVA That's Ed's?

CDR Yes.

326 20 42 48 SPT-EVA I tell you what, Bill. Maybe we ought to - we


ought to get in that configuration. Come on
in - -

CDR Ed?

SPT-EVA - - and hop in the airlock on this side.


3O7

CDR Right. And, Ed, you should be in the - in that


foot restraint because Bill's going to start
handing things out to you and you're going to
tether them to yourself.

326 20 43 01 SPT-EVA Okay. Put your feet down there and watch the DAC
over in the corner. Now you still got your - Take
your roll to your right and then on - do your _*_

SPT-EVA 0kay.

PLT-EVA Clamps don't work any better here than they did
in the trainer.

SPT-EVA Well, now they did all right. Now, get - get your
feet down over there in the corner. Watch the
DAC - -

PLT-EVA Okay, give me the DAC - -

SPT-EVA - - and I'll be able to move on out of here.

326 20 43 28 PLT-EVA Now, are our umbilicals straight?

SPT-EVA Yes.

PLT-EVA Okay. Now where do you - just tell me where to


go.

SPT-EVA Stay where you are.

326 20 43 56 CC Skylab, this is Houston. We don't believe you


have to actually get back into the airlock module
to proceed to the 193 ops. Just go to page 6.2-1
and EV-1 becomes EV-2 and vice-a-versa [sic].
Over.

CDR Yes, we know, Bruce.

SPT-EVA Roger. We're with you, Bruce. We Just wanted to


get the - It was one way of getting the umbilicals
straight for sure.

PLT-EVA We a1_eady got tangled up once.

CC Okay.

PLT-EVA Okay. What do you need first?


J

308

CDR All right. The first thing, is the Jumper box.

PLT-EVA Okay.

CDR How' s everybody' s cooling?

326 20 44 08 CC And for the CDR, this is Houston. We're going to


send a load up to the ATMDC which will bias the
X-axis nominal momentum 30 percent less than what
it normally is. This is because we're carrying
a minus 50 percent right now and we'd like to cut
down the magnitude of any dump maneuver or reset
maneuver that may occur. Over.

326 20 4h 31 CDR Okay, Bruce.

SPT-EVA Bill, before you get up in there, let me get my


umbilical out. Move on back down there. Okay.
Now I got to get 35 feet umbilical up behind me
in the aft section here.

CDR That 's right.

SPT-EVA Let's feed that first. The - watch - watch the


gear - -

PLT-EVA I am.

SPT-EVA - - as I pull the stuff out.

326 20 h4 51 PLT-EVA Leave - let T025 hang out there because - -


SPT-EVA Wait a minute. Take it easy. If it starts
- hangingup on anything,let me know.

PLT-EVA Okay. Hold off Just ***

CDR Bill, you're fading off again.

PLT-EVA Okay. Okay, Ed, hold there.

SPT-EVA Take it easy there.

PLT-EVA Okay.

SPT-EVA There we go. You've got it all out.

326 20 45 34 PLT-EVA Well, now I have a tether for the Jumper box.
309

SPT-EVA Well, Just a minute. I've got a EVA wrist tether


here. What I'm trying to do right now is to roll
down to clamp my LSU.

PLT-EVA Yes, I've got one too. Let me -

326 20 46 01 CDH Okay, Ed, this says to put the Jumper box on a
right wrist tether.

SPT-EVA Okay. Ready anytime you are, Bill. Send her up.

PLT-EVA Okay. Now I'm going to bring it out and hold it


without a tether.

SPT-EVA Look, let me move in there a little bit for that


kind of an operation.

326 20 46 27 CDR Put it on your right wrist, Ed.

SPT-EVA Okay. Just come on over this way. You've got


to stay where you are. *** ... out. I'll get
it. Hold on to it. Get a dirrerent angle on
it. There you go. Hold it - now hold it still.
Okay, let go.

326 20 46 59 CDR Okay?

SPT-EVA Yes.

CDR Okay. Now the tool pouch comes out and goes on
his left wrist tether.

PLT-EVA Right there, Ed.

SPT-EVA Okay.

CDH Do you copy?

PLT-EVA Yes, it's in work.

CDR Okay.

SPT-EVA Oh, okay. That's - All right, we might be able


to use that extra tether. Okay, now let's lock
both of them.

PLT-EVA Okay, that's complete.

F_
310 _

CDR Okay. Now, Bill, you take the foot restraint


and put it on a left wrist tether of you - for
yOU •

PLT-EVA Okay, stand by. It 's in work.

326 20 48 17 PLT-EVA Trying to change wrist tethers here. It's taking


me a ***

326 20 48 21 CDR Okay.

SPT-EVA I'll tell you, Bill, you're going to notice an


experience when you get out in the great out-
doors there. You really realize you're up. In
here, it still looks like a window until you get
out there on that Sun end, the old work center.

326 20 48 35 CDR Once you get it tethered, you and Ed just head
on for 193.

SPT-EVA Roger.

PLT-EVA And I'll go first, if I recall.

SPT-EVA That 's right - -

CDR That's right. And Ed will manage your LSU for


you. And it s_ys the route to take, translate
to S193 antenna area, using the mol sieve vent
duct.

326 20 48 55 SPT-EVA It's silver - I think it's gold now. I think


- I see a gold wrappingaroundit.

SPT-EVA How you doing there, Bill?

PLT-EVA Not much. I'm trying to get the tether loose.

SPT-EVA Okay, I'm looking at 3.6 and no lights.

CDR Okay. Bill, give me yours when you get a chance.

326 20 49 20 PLT-EVA Okay. 3.65; no lights.

CDR Okay.

SPT-EVA Okay, it 's coming down.

CDR Okay.
311

PLT-EVA Coming ...

SPT-EVA Follow the yellow brick pike.

CDR Okay.

SPT-EVA Okay. Get your bearing here, Bill• And we've


got your umbilical a little snagged here, around
the front of you. Just a minute. That's your
umbilical there. Okay, now Just - pick your
left arm off. Wait until you get on the handrail.
Step over here on F-15; bring your right hand over
here. There you go.

326 20 51 03 CDR Okay, troops. You've been out for 3 hours and
7 minutes.

SPT-EVA Okay, Bill. Go ahead.

PLT-EVA Okay.

SPT-EVA Take it nice and slow, Bill. Watch that thing.


It gets wrapped around very easily.

..... PLT-EVA 0kay.

SPT-EVA Bill - Read on a little bit, will you, Jer, so


we can see what's coming up?

326 20 51 30 CDR Well, when Bill gets there, he's going to set up
for operations. That is, he's going to try to
restrain himself and put the - the foot re-
straint in where it belongs in that -that little
- terminal down there, when he's at the first ter-
minal area.

CDB And I'm down here looking out the window waiting
- waiting with bated breath for Bill to appear
on the horizon.

SPT-EVA That's good .... Bill, Just come over there.


•.. Here he's closely ...

CDR Hello, William. How'd it go?

SPT-EVA She's there. I think •.. It's there but it


doesn't look like ...

326 20 52 49 SPT-EVA How's the umbilical, Bill? You need more?


_h

312

PLT-EVA Oh, there it is. I - I can't tell. It's behind


me.

SPT-EVA Is it tight?

PLT-EVA It 's okay.

SPT-EVA Oh, okay, 1 sec. Slow and easy, Bill.

PLT-EVA 0kay, now, Jer, ...

SPT-EVA Bill, I can't hear you. You're going to have to


talk louder.

PLT-EVA ...

SPT-EVA 0kay.

326 20 53 39 SPT-EVA That's about right I believe. That's it. You're


almost ready to close it. No.

326 20 54 19 CDR All done?

SPT-EVA Make sure it's clear in.

PLT-EVA Man, I'm hard pressed for a pin.

326 20 54 23 CDR What?

PLT-EVA Okay.

CDR Is it clear through?

- 326 20 54 27 PLT-EVA Yes, but the pin doesn't lock; it's Just like
it was in the doggone trainer.

CDR And there's no ball detent on it?

PLT-EVA Yes, there is, but it works just like it did -

326 20 54 37 CC PLT, Houston. We understand you're having trouble


6 with the locking pin on the foot restraint mount.

PLT-EVA Yes, the little balls don't stick out far enough
to keep the pin from drifting back out. I'm
going to use a wrist tether.

326 20 54 50 CC Okay, you sure you've got the pip pin seated all
the way home? You got to - -
313
f-_

PLT-EVA It's way - it's sticking way out on the other


side, Bruce.

CDR It looks like you got another half inch of travel


you could go.

CC Okay, we copy.

B26 20 5h 59 PLT-EVA Yes, but it's - I can fix it here.

CDR All right.

PLT-EVA Gosh darn - -

CDR Do what you need to do.

B26 20 55 06 CC Another suggestion, is you've got plenty of tape


with you; whatever looks like will hold it best
to you all. Maybe you can put the pin through and
then tape the pin in place or something. We got
30 seconds until LOS. Next station contact is the
Vanguard in port in 9-1/2 minutes. Out.

F_ CDR Roger, Bruce.

SPT-EVA You got it, Bill? Take your time there, Bill,
and think it through.

PLT-EVA I will. I - I have a solution.

B26 20 55 _38 CDR Yes, if you just get it tethered, you're in good
shape. It's a - installation is very good.

SPT-EVA Got it?

326 20 55 48 PLT-EVA Got it and - -

SPT-EVA Looks good.

CDR Okay.

PLT-EVA Coming out.

CDR Now, Ed, you grab the FAS and manage your own
LSU and come on down.

326 20 55 59 SPT-EVA Okay. I've got one little whifferdill in this


LSU, which I'd like to get out of here first.
Make sure it doesn't get - Okay.
314

CDR Now, Bill, you want to go ahead and go to a posi-


tion where you're ready to start working on the
ant e nna.

326 20 56 27 PLT-EVA Okay. That's where I'm getting now.

CDR Okay.

CDE Watch out for this window behind you here, so you
don't want to kick it.

326 20 56 44 CDR Say, it seems to me the best place for you to be


working, Bill, is to be upside down from what you
are right now - with your feet away from the re-
straints, so that as Ed manages your body, he's
working with your shoulders rather than your
waist or your hips.
PLT-EVA Okay.

CDR And he'll do a lot better Job of restraining you


that way.

SPT-EVA Darn, this was originally silver, the way it says


in the trainer. That's this vent line here. It
sure isn't where the Sun gets to it.

326 20 57 37 PLT-EVA I - I think my umbilical may be caught down there.

CDR Well, I'll tell you what. Wait until Ed gets


down there and can see what's cooking.

PLT-EVA Okay.

CDR Just relax and let him get down.

SPT-EVA No, you got - you got lots of umbilical there.

326 20 57 48 PLT-EVA Yes, but I think I went down - when I went down
there to -

SPT-EVA Yes, okay. I can - I can pull out more umbilical.


Is that what you need?

PLT-EVA No, no, I don't need any more.

CDR I don't think so.

326 20 58 04 SPT-EVA Oh, okay.


315

326 20 58 06 CDR Bill, your feet are going to be down in the wrong
direction; they need to be - -

PLT-EVA I - well - -

CDR - - pointed in the opposite direction.

PLT-EVA Jer, I can't turn around; that's why I was -

CDR Well, then Just relax and wait until Ed gets there.

PLT-EVA That 's what I 'm doing.

326 20 58 17 SPT-EVA Okay, coming down, William.

CDR Wait until Ed gets in the restraint. Then he's


got all the leverage and he can maneuver you
around.

PLT-EVA Roger.

326 20 58 31 SPT-EVA Okay, now let me - Bill? I guess what I do is


slide right down between this box and you.

PLT-EVA Yes, if you can.

SPT-EVA Can you lean forward a little bit?

CDR Why, it's B_g Ed.

SPT-EVA There. Now - Now when I - -

- PLT-EVA Tell - tell me as soon as you get in the foot re-


straints, Ed.

SPT-EVA Yes. Stand by, there.

326 20 59 25 PLT-EVA No, I don't have any below me.

SPT-EVA Okay. Now those foot restraints are locked.

PLT-EVA Yes. So go ahead and stick your little tootsies


in there, Cinderella.

SPT-EVA All right, your - heels so they're locked - -

326 20 59 48 CDR No, you're not there; you're not there. Roll the
inside of your - your left foot in and then try
it. You're - you're cocked on the -
316

SPT-EVA Sure I'm not there?

CDR No, you're not there.

SPT-EVA Well, this is not the most stable little platform,


is it?

CDR Roll down on your left arch. Push it down toward


the plate.

326 21 00 09 SPT-EVA Okay. It feels like it's in there, Jer.

CDR Well, you're in there part way, but you might slip
out easy. Now that's good; perfect.
SPT-EVA Okay.

CDR Now you're in solid.

SPT-EVA Okay. Now, read on.

CDR Okay. You're going to deploy - remove the jumper


box and place it on the hook of the tool pouch.
And - well, no, first of all, deploy the tool
pouch.

326 21 00 34 SPT-EVA That's a good iaea there.

CDR But you need to help deploy Bill, too, if neces-


sary there.

SPT-EVA Well, Bill, tell you what; why don't you just stop
thrashing there? Just - just cool it a minute.

PLT-EVA I'm trying to get my bearings so that I can see


the - I've already looked inside the pitch pot,
and it looks clean.

CDR Okay.

326 21 01 19 SPT-EVA Don't keep bumping your - ... down there. Take
it easy and I'll have this thing deployed in no
time, and I'll be holding onto you.

CDR 0ops' I saw that Jumper box floating away and


the - and the lanyard was behind it. I couldn't
see it, and I thought it was loose.

SPT-EVA Come on there.


317

326 21 01 h3 CDR Oh, what a mess. (Laughter) I'm straining my gut


trying to help you, Ed.

SPT-EVA Well, hold on now; we're getting it.

326 21 02 09 CDR Gently with that, Ed. You're liable to flip a


tool out.

SPT-EVA Yes, I understand. Got to take this other one now


and put that one around too.

326 21 02 32 CDR Bill, I think you'd be better off helping Ed get


that tool box deployed.

PLT-EVA Okay.

CDR Hold it out for him so that loose end doesn't swing
around, the one that's looking at you right in the
face. Attaway. Be terrible to flip one of those
tools off of there and see it go whistling off.

326 21 02 55 SPT-EVA Okay, there's the Velcro on the left side, and I
think we've got a pretty good feel now. Now I can
take my wrist tether off this thing. Okay. Now
*NN here,Bill. Son of a gun.

326 21 03 19 CDR There you go. Good show. Not - not too much;
you're flipping it clear over.

SPT-EVA Yes, I know; I got to undo a little of it.

CDR Bill's got it and handing it to you.

- 326 21 03 32 SPT-EVA Yes, I see it, but you see, there's a - -

CDR There you go.

SPT-EVA Watch your feet there, Bill. There you go. That's
what we needed. Now I in turn, am going to hand
something to you. This thing coming around here.
Will you take that?

326 21 03 50 PLT-EVA Just a sec. I got it.

SPT-EVA Okay, now pull on it. No, no; I don't mean there.
I mean underneath here.

CDR There you go. There - got it.


318

326 21 0h 00 SPT-EVA Okay, now, Just bring that up. Just lay it down,
and I'll put it - okay, I got it. Now you just
worry about yourself there.

326 21 04 35 SPT-EVA Can't get the right side turned over to Velcr0 it.

PLT-EVA Ah, okay.

SPT-EVA Just hold onto that. I Just got to make a 180 with
this strap, here.

PLT-EVA (Laughter) Okay.

CDR Your left heel is about to kick the window, Bill.

PLT Okay, okay; if you hold it steady; I think I can


wrap it.

326 21 04 52 CDR Bill, your left heel's about to kick the window.

SPT-EVA Now let me put this one around here too.

CDR Okay, that looks good. Now you need to do the other
end that good. The other end looks pretty loose. --

SPT-EVA Well, I Just been sliding along here, Jer; that's


m_ problem. It's - it's on there; on my side I
got good Velero both ways.

CDR Okay.

SPT-EVA So I think we 're okay.

- CDR Very good; let's press on then.

326 21 05 24 CDR Now you take the J_nper box container and - from
your wrist tether and place it on the hook of the
tool pouch, Ed.

SPT-EVA Okay. Get that hook over here first. Tether off.

SPT-EVA Okay.

326 21 05 58 CC Skylab, this is Houston through the Vanguard in


port for 6 minutes. Over.

SPT-EVA I said hello, Bruce. We're Just setting up shop


here. We got the tools deployed and we're ready
to move on.
319

CDR 0kay, we 're - -

CC Roger. For the - -

CDR We're - inspect and the clean the pots.

326 21 06 37 SPT-EVA Bruce, you didn't come through. 0nly the last half
of your sentence came through.

CC Okay; I'll repeat again in a minute.

SPT-EVA Okay, you have got a wrist tether there, Bill?

cal 's hung up. Okay.

PLT-EVA Am I still free?

- SPT-EVA You're okay, yes. Where do you want to go?

326 21 13 06 PLT-EVA Well, I'm not sure. I thought I wanted to go


around -

PLT-EVA Okay. Now - -

SPT-EVA Careful with that. Don't - you got -

CDR Hey, you guys - -

326 21 13 22 SPT-EVA I'll hold you. Let me move you; you can tell me
where you want to go.
.i

324

PLT-EVA Okay, I want to go back over on the other side - -

CDR It's okay to hold onto the waveguide. Just don't


reach out in front of the antenna. The waveguide's
real strong in the back.

SPT-EVA Well -

CDR They said that was an acceptable handhold.

SPT-EVA That makes me a little nervous.

CDR Heck, it's made out of alnm_nu1_.

326 21 13 45 PLT-EVA Okay, push my feet to your right.

326 21 13 47 SPT-EVA 0ks_v. I'm going to lose hold of you, though.

PLT-EVA Okay.

SPT-EVA You got the - the window there; the EREP window.

CDR Watch out you don't kick the windows. I might


get short of breath in here.

SPT-EVA Okay, Bill. What are you doing now?

PLT-EVA I'm trying to get to the roll pot, and I can't


quite get in the right position.

326 21 14 29 SPT-EVA Just tell me where you want to be and I'll steer
you.

PLT-EVA Well, the - the question right -It doesn't look


like it did in the training, and I -

PLT-EVA Okay - There's some -

326 21 15 06 CDR We can't hear you, Bill.

PLT-EVA Okay, there's no - there's no - very little clear-


ance for the roll. And - *** Try to pull up
slightly so I can see in there.

me right in there.

326 21 16 32 SPT-EVA You're doing real good there, Bill.

PLT-EVA I keep thinking I 'm in the wrong place.

SPT-EVA Now wait a minute. You can actually - You can see

PLT-EVA I know.

CDR You think you're at the wrong end. Is that it?

PLT-EVA No.

326 21 17 12 SPT-EVA ... it better with your right arm.

326 21 17 18 PLT-EVA It's very, very difficult to get in here with a


rope.

PLT-EVA Yes. I'm on the dark side here too.

SPT-EVA *** visor up you could probably see a little bit


better.

PLT-EVA Hey, Jer?

CDR Yes.

PLT-EVA What I suggest we do is - is that I -once - I have


not seen that I have cleaned anything out.

CDR All right.

PLT-EVA But let me get out of the way.

CDR Okay. Tell me when you're well clear. I won't do


a thing until you're well clear.

326 21 18 14 SPT-EVA Okay, now what have you got as a handhold there?

CDR Be careful, I hear people kicking. Don't kick m_


window.
326

SPT-EVA Okay, Bill, now I'Ii Just have to - tell you what.
Let me hold your - okay - towards me.

PLT-EVA Let me get the _nbilicals, Just a second. Okay.


Let her rip, Jer.

326 21 18 51 CDR Okay, here we go. EREP POWER, BUS 1 and BUS 2
coming ON now.

326 21 18 58 CDR PANEL POWER, DISPLAY, ON. Okay.

326 21 19 03 CDR Here comes RAD POWER, to STANDBY.

SPT-EVA That really zaps it over there, doesn't it?

CDR Okay, did it go to zero zero?

PLT-EVA No. It went all - full throw left.

CDR Full throw left, huh? Well, it looks like we haven't


fixed it, then.

326 21 19 22 SPT-EVA That where it was?

326 21 19 28 CDR Okay, I'm going to turn it off now.

SPT-EVA Is that where it's driven to before, Jer?

326 21 19 32 CDR Yes, that's the problem. It's rolled. Isn't that
right, Bill?

PLT-EVA Yes. This is right.

326 21 19 39 CDR All right. BAD POWER, is coming OFF.

326 21 19 41 CDR PANEL POWER, DISPLAY is coming OFF.

SPT-EVA Okay. Is there anything else you can think - you


can do with that pot there, Bill?

PLT-EVA I'm going to try it once more.

SPT-EVA Okay.

326 21 20 01 CDR Okay, watch the waveguide.

SPT-EVA Yes. There you go.

SPT-EVA Getting in there. It - m_ybe - what I'm thinking


is we can use the hooker on it.

PLT-EVA I - I see some material down in there.

SPT-EVA Oh, good. Hey, see if you can get it.

CDR Is it the roll pot?

326 21 20 48 PLT-EVA Pitch.

CDR Well, our problem's with roll, though, isn't it?

SPT-EVA Well, they - No, they claimed that that was where
it was most likely shorted.

PLT-EVA Let's see, I got to - -

CDR Well, then I don't understand why it's going to a


maximum roll position.

SPT-EVA Bill, watch - watch - watch. Don't pull on that


thing.

PLT-EVA Well, I need to go forward or - -

SPT-EVA Just tell me where you want to go and I'll put you
there. What - -

PLT-EVA Okay. I need my chest - -

SPT-EVA - - What was your - -

326 21 21 l0 PLT-EVA - - I wanted my chest to go forward towards -

SPT-EVA Okay.
328

PLT-EVA There we go.

326 21 22 21 PLT-EVA Okay, I'm going to have to have a flashlight, Ed.

SPT-EVA Okay, can you put it on the same wrist tether as


yougotthespatula?

PLT-EVA Yes.

SPT-EVA Okay, we're going to have to make a little maneuver


for that.

326 21 22 35 SPT-EVA *** arm down here, and I'ii try to hook that on.

326 21 2B 17 CDR Been out for B hours and 40 minutes, guys.

SPT-EVA Turn it on for you.

PLT-EVA Okay.

SPT-EVA Now.

PLT-EVA Thank you.

326 21 23 59 PLT-EVA Okay, I want to go to my left.

SPT-EVA To your left. Okay.

326 21 2h 31 PLT-EVA Okay, now I need to go further, can you put my


feet down.

SPT-EVA Up towards your bottom?

PLT-EVA Towards you.

SPT-EVA Towards me, okay.

PLT-EVA Now - -

SPT-EVA Give me everything relative to your body.

PLT-EVA - - like I was going to go toward my heels.

SPT-EVA Okay.

PLT-EVA Backwards toward my heels.

SPT-EVA Yes.
_-_ 329

PLT-EVA S_nersault - heels ,_o head.

I 326 21 25 00 SPT-EVA Is that right?

I PLT-EVA No; that's the right direction, but it didn't go


. farenough.

SPT-EVA All right. Let me pull you down.

326 21 25 44 PLT-EVA I can't get in the right position to really see in


there.

SPT-EVA All right, now Just tell me where you want to go,
Bill.

326 21 25 48 PLT-EVA I want m_ head to go forward a little bit and ...


my head - yes, I want my head to -

326 21 25 57 SPT-EVA Speak up.

PLT-EVA Okay. I need to go to my left. My head - my head


forward now. If I can hold in here, I think I can
get in there and -

PLT-EVA ... screwing me up now -

SPT-EVA Hey, Bill.

326 21 27 17 PLT-EVA Can you read me now?

SPT-EVA Yes.

- PLT-EVA I still need to go to my left. My head needs to


move to my left. No that's right.

SPT-EVA Oh, I'm sorry. Your other leg.

PLT-EVA Okay, let's see.

PLT-EVA Well, if I can get my arm out of the way Just a


little bit farther. There we go; llke that. Now
my head needs to come out. Push my whole body up
toward my head. Now I need to go back over to my
left. Oops, the flashlight came off the tether.

326 21 28 15 SPT-EVA Oh, is that right? Uh-oh. Make sure it's locked
on there; you must have 1_locked it there.
330

PLT-EVA It 's unlocked.

SPT-EVA In all the fiddling around there. We each have


another one in our - in our shoulder pocket if we
should need it. Oop! Be careful with it. Bey,
Jer?

CDB Yes.

SPT-EVA How much time we got left in darkness here?

326 21 28 42 CDR Let's see. About 14 minutes, it says here.

SPT-EVA 0kay.

CDR Is it pretty dark?

SPT-EVA Yes, it sure is. The only thing we got out here
to use as lights are the EVA lighting which is
on the other side, Bill's flashlight and my PCU
control light, and man, that's it. Other than
that, it's a lot of nice stars.

PLT-EVA Those little sparklies I was seeing before, what -


I thought was a part of the second stage, you
know, that's been floating around with Skylab.

CDR Uh-huh.

PLT-EVA But it turned out that all the insulation which


comes off of here is still loose - off into the
distance and once it gets, oh, 30 or _0 feet out
- or so, you got no depth perception on it. For
all you know, it's - you know, i00 miles away;
you really can't tell. That was until I saw around
l0 or 15 pieces of the booster and I decided that
wasn't it.

SPT-EVA I'll hold this, and I'm holding you, so you ought
to be able to work on it now.

CDB Got the antenna. Anything?

PLT-SPT/ No.
EVA
331

PLT-EVA The area looks clean in there really.

326 21 30 12 CDR Okay, do you want to try another test?

326 21 30 14 PLT-EVA No, not right now .... roll looks ... First I
want to get this flashlight tethered. Holding
it I can't see what I'm doing, when - when I'm
tethering it.

326 21 30 43 PLT-EVA Hey, great; I got it.

SPT-EVA Okay, now you want to get to the roll, huh?

PLT-EVA Well, Just a second. One more time. Well, doggone,


there is some insulation down in there. Looks
like it's way beyond it, but - put the point in
the wrong - put the point on the wrong place. I
need to take it out - pointing - point it out.

SPT-EVA I got to cut my flow, LCG down, it sure is cool


over here on the night side.

PLT-EVA Well, I tell you what, let's just take a break


_-- here and don't do anythingfor a while.

326 21 31 34 SPT-EVA Well, okay, rest a little bit.

326 21 31 36 PLT-EVA Well, I - I can't hold a flashlight. It's on the


same tether as the spatuling [sic] - the spatula.

SPT-EVA Okay, how much more to sunlight, Jer?

CDR Oh, I don't know. Probably 2 minutes less than


it was last time. Just a minute; llminutes.

SPT-EVA *** stars this is the way to do it.

326 21 32 19 CDR If you can find Corvus you might look for the comet;
be between Corvus and - and what?

SPT-EVA Little short there; I'll have to take that ***

326 21 33 46 SPT-EVA Okay, Bill, let's see, you - you worked the pitch
one over pretty well up in this one corner where
I thought it would have to be. Now the roll -
Have you been able to identify the location of the
roll? End of the pot you should be working on?
332

PLT-EVA It doesntt look like the trainer here. The -


basically you have a much - much tighter fit.

326 21 34 06 SPT-EVA Keep the location, though. You got the - you
got the plus or minus roll end of it pinpointed
and working on it.

PLT-EVA Yes.

SPT-EVA Okay. Now when we come up again, all we got to


do is Just let me worry about your body. All I
- It might take a little fumbling around but
don't tug on the wires on the back of that - the
flat cabling. Waveguide - or not the waveguide,
but the - that thing is fine but don't pull on
those -

PLT-EVA Tell you what, if you'll pull my feet down and


let me - and I could get a look at it here in
the dark.

326 21 35 12 SPT-EVA Okay.

326 21 35 42 PLT-EVA ...

SPT-EVA Say something?

PLT-EVA Can you read me?

SPT-EVA No, I didn't, Bill.

PLT-EVA What?

SPT-EVA Ss_v again. I didn't hear you, no.

PLT-EVA Oh, okay. I need to move my head over to my


right, but I need that - my - there's structure
here in the way, so I need to get - -

SPT-EVA Yes.

PLT-EVA - - my feet first, forward.

SPT-EVA Okay ....

326 21 36 55 PLT-EVA If you can, move forward so I can look back up


*** Okay, now it's toward my feet, flat foot
down.
333

SPT-EVA Okay.

PLT-EVA That's good with the foot. Okay, I need to come


forward a little more.

SPT-EVA m** the way and I'm trying to push you forward.

PLT-EVA I'm trying to push myself slightly to the right.

326 21 37 25 PLT-EVA Now my head forward.

326 21 37 h0 SPT-EVA Hey, Jer, why don't you come on out here and hold
the antenna?

CDR Hey, I'd love to do that. Only who'd m_nd the


store ?

PLT-EVA My head needs to go toward the antenna, and I need


to come down slightly.

SPT-EVA Tell me where you want me.

PLT-EVA Okay, down a little farther.

SPT-EVA Okay.

PLT-EVA Okay. Hold it right there.

CDR About 4-1/2 minutes of darkness. Looks like you're


getting -

SPT-EVA Getting a little already, I think.

CDR Yes.

PLT-EVA Okay, now bring it down lower.

SPT-EVA Lower?

PLT-EVA Yes, lower.

326 21 39 09 PLT-EVA That's good right there. Okay, if there's anything


in there, I can't see it.

SPT-EVA Looks clean, huh?


334

SPT-EVA Want to brush it a little bit, while you can see


it?

PLT Do what?

SPT-EVA Do you want to brush it a little bit more while


you can see it? It only takes a very small
piece in there.

PLT-EVA Okay. Trouble is, I 'm tied onto my flashlight.

SPT-EVA Oh, ye s. Here.

326 21 39 54 SPT-EVA Yes. I can't hold you and get my flashlight out
at the same time, unfortunately.

326 21 41 2h SPT-EVA How you doing, Bill?

PLT-EVA Okay.

SPT-EVA How's your tamp?

PLT-EVA Tamp 's fine.

B26 21 hl 5h SPT-EVA What you doing in there, Jer?

CDR Making changes to the EREP book.

SPT-EVA Got a little bit of condensation on that window,


don't we?

CDR Yes, there's a little tad there. Believe it's on


the outside, too, or at least between panes.

SPT-EVA I guess it all forms there in the center of the


window where the windows are coldest. The struc-
ture probably heats it up and that center is the
•.. coldest. Do you have any kind of lights in-
side, bright lights that we could shine on that
and heat it up; get rid of it. Probably all we'd
do is drive that moisture to somewhere else on
the window. Here comes the Sun'

CDR Okay• Get back to work, you guys.

SPT-EVA The thing is if I do the ... Okay, sweet William,


what 's your desire?
_, 335

326 21 _3 08 PLT-_A Okay. I want - I want to do one more thing on


the pitch pot. And I want to brush the roll
heir again.

SPT-EVA All right, and then let's stand back and have a go
at it. If that doesn't work, we move on.

PLT-EVA Right.

CDR That's right. You have been 4 hours out there.


Now we got to kind of press on.

SPT-EVA Okay.

SPT-EVA Just - Just a minute, Bill. I want you to get your


umbilical out of something. Okay.

326 21 43 53 PLT-EVA Ah-hah'

SPT-EVA What ?

PLT-EVA I may have found it.

SPT-EVA What is it?

PLT-EVA Some insulation On the pitch pot.

SPT-EVA All right, beautiful. I sure hope so, babe'

CDR What did you say?

SPT-EVA Insulation on the pitch pot.

PLT-EVA Well, I 'll need now the ... al_mi num.

PLT-EVA Man, that stuff is hard to remove. Here it is.

326 21 44 29 PLT-EVA Man, I hope that was it. Okay, I want to use the
flashlight bag to put mine away.

SPT-EVA All right. But Just a minute. Wait until I -


wait until I get set to sync it here, Bill.
Okay.

PLT-EVA Okay. Now you hold it.

PLT-EVA Okay. You got itY


336 -'_

SPT-EVA I've got it. Okay, now I'm going to have to put
it on a tether here, Bill.

PLT-EVA Okay. You Just let go of me for a while.

CDR Man, I hope that was the culprit. We'll find out
soon enough.

SPT-EVA Now, do you want to have another go at the other


pot ?

PLT-EVA No, I'll have another go at this one, because I


didn't see that until I pulled this insulation
cover back. I'm still not sure that that was it,
but it's a possibility.

326 21 h6 02 SPT-EVA Tell me where you want to be, Bill, and I'll put
you - -

PLT-EVA Right there. Right there is good.

SPT-EVA There's no way of getting on the ...

SPT-EVA I'll tell you, Jer, we sure have created a - another


stellar field for ourselves.

CDR I'm sure the star tracker _-ili appreciate it.

SPT-EVA Yes.

PLT-EVA I need - let's see - Okay, once more.

PLT-EVA I need to go to my right.

SPT-EVA To your right.

PLT-EVA Get my head back a little bit here.

326 21 47 01 PLT-EVA Okay, right in there - right in - That's good.


Beautiful.

PLT-EVA ... down. No ... The other way, Ed.

SPT-EVA Further down?

PLT-EVA Yes, the other one down.

SPT-EVA Okay.
337

PLT-EVA That's to allow my head to come forward.

PLT-EVA Okay, can I - my feet need to come up there to-


wards my - toward the heel direction.

326 21 47 57 SPT-EVA Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to pull you down
while I was doing it.

PLT-EVA 0kay.

SPT-EVA Now - doggone it.

PLT-EVA Right there - right there. Well, there's pieces


of insulation in there. That could be the prob-
lem. The - the tool's not adequate to get it.

SPT-EVA Now, let's see. What do you think you need to


get at it?

PLT-EVA Well, let me - let me try Just a little bit more.


I wish I had something like an ice pick on it.

CDR You got a screwdriver out there.

326 21 48 45 SPT-EVA I think they made that thing purposely soft like
that so you wouldn't dent anything. Now, I sug-
gest we try it before we break some stuff in
there.

CDR Yes. That's right.

SPT-EVA Anything metallic.

326 21 49 17 PLT-EVA I (laughter) tethered - I need to reel it on my


left arm and I got it tethered to my right.

SPT-EVA Now which way are things tethered? Be careful


now because that's a tough thing to work.

PLT-EVA Yes, I know.

SPT-EVA Want me to help you?

PLT-EVA Hold off.

SPT-EVA Rather than lose it, why don't you Just let me
bring you down here?

PLT-EVA Okay.
338

326 21 50 05 SPT-EVA Okay. Now, hold on to a ... that's a good idea.


Okay. Now you Just bring me your right arm.
Oh,there
itis.

PLT-EVA 0ne's on my left - -

SPT-EVA Okay, I want it on the left arm, over here.

SPT-EVA Okay, I 'd say that 's there.

PLT-EVA Okay. Now, if you can move your leg around to


the same position I had•

SPT-EVA Okay. You will have to give me instructions


again.

326 21 50 50 PLT-EVA Okay, that's - Now put my legs over here.

SPT-EVA Watch it' Hey, wait. Oh, hold it, hold it, hold
it, hold the phone' Get the umbilicals out of my
- out of the way here. Okay.

PLT-EVA Okay• Now the ... lock there and you hold it
right in there. --

SPT-EVA 0kay.

PLT-EVA Okay, _y head's got to go to the left a little•


I can't quite see to the left• Okay, a little
more.

SPT-EVA Oh• I'm sorry; it's the other left•

PLT-EVA Okay. I'm tender in my legs, too.

BPT-EVA Can you see what you are after now?

PLT-EVA Yes.

SPT-EVA Hey, Bill• Say what do you think if we put a


little fix tape on the end of that thing, you
can get in there with it?

PLT-EVA No• That's not what's bothering me right now.


•.• a lot of the dexterity I need to manipulate.

SPT-EVA Okay, what do you need?

PLT-EVA Okay, I got the piece out I was working for.


339

SPT-EVA Is there another one in there?

PLT-EVA No, that's it. No. Apparently -

326 21 52 31 CDR Maybe you ought to back off and we'll see if We
got it.

PLT-EVA Okay, I'll back off again.

SPT-EVA Okay, now remember where that thing slams over


to, Bill. There's the peg ... there. So I sug-
gest what you do is push yourself back right
against the EREP window box. Get our umbilicals
out of the way because when that thing swings, it
really goes. Now get those umbilicals out of the
way if you can.

326 21 53 01 PLT-EVA Just a second.

SPT-EVA I can't reach yours.

PLT-EVA Yes.

_ SPT-EVA0kay.

CDR Okay -

SPT-EVA Nait a minute. No. No.

PLT-EVA Okay.

326 21 53 08 SPT-EVA Hold - hold it just - That one is hung up on the


EREP window box ... Not much to grab on to
there, do you?

PLT-EVA Okay, just a second. I want us to arrive in the


same position.

SPT-EVA Meanwhile, I take all the umbilicals out, and,


Jer, let her roll.

CDR Okay. Have you got the antenna position so it's


well off of zero zero?

PLT-EVA No.

SPT-EVA Here, I'll get it. Okay.


3hO _

326 21 53 44 CDR Okay, here they go. EREP POWER, BUS l, ON; BUS 2,
ON; POWER DISPLAY, ON. Stand by, here she comes.
RAD POWER, to STANDBY, now. Minus - - .

PLT-EVA Afraid not, Jer. Didn't do it.

CDR Okay. POWER's coming OFF. Okay, you're safe to


get in close to it again.

PLT-EVA All right. Okay, let's assume that the DAC


doesn 't work.

SPT-EVA All right. Let's press on.

326 21 5_ 13 CDR All right, the next step is to inspect the flex
harness, from the three connectors to the first
tie-down to see if there is any obvious damage.

PLT-EVA That 's in work.

SPT-EVA Come on down here again, Bill, and I'll get your

PLT-EVA
Okay.

SPT-EVA - - your feet. Drift this way. Okay. I've got


your feet.

PLT-EVA Okay, the flex harness is way down there, Ed.

SPT-EVA Where? Towards me?

- PLT-EVA Yes. Okay, now you go here do a whifferdill.

SPT-EVA Okay.

PLT-EVA Can my feet go in toward the spacecraft a little


bit?

326 21 55 06 SPT-EVA Just a minute.

PLT-EVA There we go.

326 21 55 17 SPT-EVA Just got your head here now, Bill.

PLT-EVA Yes.

PLT-EVA I want to be -

SPT-EVA NOw where do you want to be? _-"


341

PLT-EVA I want to be right here. Do I have a route - do


I have a route to reach the antenna?

CDR Bill, as long as you don't move around - yes, your


SOP is over in that direction.

SPT-EVA SOP's over there.

PLT-EVA 0kay.

SPT-EVA Where you want me to get, Bill?

PLT-EVA Right here.

SPT-EVA Oh, I see what you're looking at. Yes.

Z26 21 55 58 PLT-EVA Okay, the flex harness is not d_maged.

CDR Okay, that means we got to install a Jumper box.

PLT-EVA Okay. I need the scissors, Ed.

SPT-EVA Say again?

PLT-EVA I need the scissors.

SPT-EVA Well, all right, I can't - We got to get you out


of the way here first, Bill.

PLT-EVA Okay. Am I ... my mnhilical, here?

SPT-EVA Just a minute. I Just tangled up in all the goodies


here. Hold on, here. Are you hanging on?

PLT-EVA Yes.

SPT-EVA Okay. There.

PLT-EVA If I put my feet out like - -

SPT-EVA Just a minute - Just a minute. Our hammer is


going to come out of here .... umbilical. Okay,
now where do you want to he?

326 21 56 50 PLT-EVA Well, I would like to be - face the work area


here. Like this. And - however, if I put my
feet in position for this view - Are you reading
me?
342

SPT-EVA Very broken. You're break - you're breaking up


pretty bad.

PLT-EVA Well - -

SPT-EVA Okay, go ahead. Right there?

PLT-EVA Yes, can you put my feet more to the - that way?
Left.

SPT-EVA To your left. Okay?

PLT-EVA No. That 's right. The other way.

326 21 57 19 SPT-EVA Your other left.

PLT-EVA There we go. Now if I get - get my feet on the


other side of you so you can pull leg back far.
So - you'll have to pull me back and I'll have
to put my feet - can you put my feet down? Toes
- heels to -

SPT-EVA There?

PLT-EVA There we go. Beautiful.

326 21 57 42 SPT-EVA Okay, now, you Just hold on there and I'll get
you a pair of scissors.

PLT-EVA Okay.

CDR Watch out for your visor, Bill.

SPT-EVA May want to push your other visor up here.

SPT-EVA Just a minute. There. Now, you can see what


you are doing.

PLT-EVA Okay.

SPT-EVA Okay. Now, you want to put the flashlight - We've


given up on the spatula, huh?

PLT-EVA Yes, I did.

SPT-EVA Why don't you give me the spatula? And we'll put
that thing away. Get it out of our hair here.
343

326 21 58 42 SPT-EVA Okay, scissors. Be careful here. I'll hold onto


it and you hook onto it.

PLT-EVA Yes, Just a minute. I need a little on my right.


... back to _ right.

SPT-EVA Okay, let 's lock elbows here.

SPT-EVA Let me lock them.

PLT-EVA Just a sac.

SPT-EVA Okay.

PLT-EVA Got it.

SPT-EVA You got a lock?

PLT-EVA Yes.

SPT-EVA Okay. You take - here, I'll take the - the clamp
off. Okay. Now that's probably not the easiest
thing to use. Tell me where you want it to be.

326 21 59 50 CDR Okay. It says: Clear insulation away from con-


nectors, as required, to loosen the screws. I
guess there's nothing new here that you don't
already know.

PLT-EVA 0kay, now you need to pull me - pull my feet a


little bit. There, right there. Now put me
down toward it.

SPT-EVA ... where the VC is cleared.

PLT-EVA Hey, that's the way. Beautiful.

326 22 00 2h PLT-EVA Can you pull me back over that? Right along in
there?

SPT-EVA Okay?

PLT-EVA 0kay. Man I know that 's hard work, Ed.

SPT-EVA Well, now Just you tell me where you want to be.
Half the trouble's understanding it.
3_ ....

CDR Bill, your visor is part way down and if you keep
scraping it, you're going to ruin it. I'd put it
up if I were you.

PLT-EVA Well, I - we were going to try the VC but I don't


think we can. Okay.

326 22 01 35 SPT-EVA What are the pieces that you get out of there?

PLT-EVA What? I'm not sure I got any that was of any
importance.

SPT-EVA Apparently we didn't get the right one.

PLT-EVA Yes.

SPT-EVA That was it.

PLT-EVA That was it. Yes.

SPT-EVA Jer, what do we - what's the procedure here, now?

326 22 02 02 PLT-EVA I'm trying to get - -

CDR You're going to clear way to insulation. And then


he's going to loosen those three pair of connec-
tors, and disconnect those connectors, those three.

SPT-EVA Yes.

CDR Then he's going to-put the Jumper box in on - on


top of the plate and - -

PLT-EVA I want to go back.

326 22 02 19 SPT-EVA Which way?

PLT-EVA Toward the work area. You know, Just slightly


back; right along in here.

SPT-EVA Okay.

CDR Just a matter of - -

SPT-EVA Knock.

CDR - - pulling out the insulation, putting on the box


and hooking up the three connectors again.
._ 345

SPT-gVA Okay, now what's this going to be for?

CDR This Just allows us to open one channel at a time.

SPT-EVA I got the pin .....

326 22 02 44 PLT-EVA I need to go down - quite a bit, Ed. Down quite


a bit. Down quite a bit. Toward my feet.

SPT-EVA Looks like you don't have much purchase here, Bill.

PLT-EVA Okay.

SPT-EVA There you go.

CDR You're going to need the Yankee screwdriver next,


Ed.

SPT-EVA The what kind of screwdriver?

326 22 03 26 CDR The rebel screwdriver.

SPT-EVA Okay, the Dixie screwdriver. The Dixie screw-


f driver coming up.

CDR Dixie screwdriver, htth? (Laughter)

SPT-EVA Okay. Hey, we want to tether this thing, huh?

326 22 03 58 CDR Yes. Don't lose it.

SPT-EVA You want another tether, Bill?

PLT-EVA No, I think this is all, but Just a second.

SPT-EVA Okay. Okay, you've done all the clearing you need,
huh?

PLT-EVA I think so.

SPT-EVA All right. Hand me the scissors and I'll put them
away. Better be careful with that. Okay, can
you hold yourself there now?

PLT-EVA Yes.
346

326 22 04 24 SPT-EVA Because I need both hands for this one.

SPT-EVA Bill has a way, Jer. He Just flies away from


the spacecraft. I'm afraid -

PLT-EVA ... it's the outgassing from our PCUs.

SPT-EVA PCU's.

CDR Careful with those scissors now, Ed.

SPT-EVA Oh, I've put them up, Jer.

CDR I know, but they're not tethered in.

326 22 05 02 SPT-EVA I understand that. But I'm more concerned about


losing this tether.

PLT-EVA Okay, now.

SPT-EVA Jer, it's going to take forever to get that thing


in there. We're Just going to have to depend on
the Velcro here.

CDR Okay.

SPT-EVA Same with our friend - friendly spatula. Okay.


Here comes the screwdriver.

326 22 05 56 SPT-EVA Okay. Get your back to operating location here.


Okay, tell me where you want to be.

- PLT-EVA Right - for right now, get these first three out.
Haven't been able to get ... like they thought
they would.

SPT-EVA Say again.

PLT-EVA Oh, nothing.

CDR Bill, I think your problem now is that you got


that mike in your mouth. You're probably over-
driving the VOX system now.

326 22 07 03 SPT-EVA Having any much - much luck?

PLT-EVA I'll let you know in a minute.


347

PLT-EVA 0kay. Now you can put me down a little bit.

SPT-EVA Okay.

PLT-EVA Move me down and let me compare that one.

SPT-EVA What do you think they're ...

PLT-EVA Okay. Let me try some more here. Turn m_ water


flow down a little bit. I'm getting a little
chilled. Okay, let 's try again.

SPT-EVA Lean up.

326 22 0R 30 PLT-EVA This thing is not engaged in the slot.

SPT-EVA Make sure it's perpendicular.

SPT-EVA That do it?

PLT-EVA I don' t know.

PLT-EVA I wonder if there's a slipknot under there.

CDR No, I don't - I wouldn't think so. I - I would


think they would know about it if there was.

326 22 l0 08 PLT-EVA Seems like there's a knot under there slipping.


I'm twisting the - the *** Hey, I finally got
one.

SPT-EVA Hey, there you go. Okay.

PLT-EVA Why didn't these others come out?

SPT-EVA I think you got it perpendicular. I can see it.


You got to move it a little - the top a little
bit to your left.

PLT-EVA Well, son of a gun.

SPT-EVA Did you get it?

PLT-EVA No.

SPT-EVA Tell you what.


348

PLT-EVA Well, it seemed to come down some. Can you -


Too bad; that worked so well on the ground.

326 22 ll 52 PLT-EVA All right, it's perpendicular. There's something


underneath there moving, Jer. I can see it.

PLT-EVA I think that 's it.

CDR The one I did underwater took, what seemed to me,


an inordinately large number of strokes to get it
open.

PLT-EVA I think we've gotten them. Okay, now move ***

CDR You got all three?

SPT-EVA Three of them on one side. Now we've got to get


the other three.

CDR Okay.

PLT-EVA Let me see in there. Okay, can you push my -


toward my feet.

326 22 13 17 SPT-EVA Now, that's really hard for you, Bill. You may
want - I'll just move out of the way and let -
and I can lean forward and do it.

SPT-EVA I got them all stabilized and everything. Okay.

SPT-EVA Okay. Tell you what. Just hold on just - Get


stabilized and move yourself over this way.

326 22 13 37 PLT-EVA I'll tell you what. Let me get the - the two -

CDR I wouldn't - Okay, there you go.

SPT-EVA You sure don't have much clearance here.

PLT-EVA Let me ... in and then push that insulation in.

SPT-EVA Okay. Don't drift away.

326 22 14 37 PLT-EVA Okay. Pull me back down there, Ed. I'm used to
working the thing.

SPT-EVA All right. You're going to have to come at it


from an angle.
349

SPT-EVA Hand one to me, Bill.

326 22 15 15 PLT-EVA Don't worry, Ed, that's right. Now I want to go


down toward m_ feet. There. Now toward my right
slightly. Down, back it down again.

SPT-EVA Here, you have to come at it from an angle. I'll


tell you that's a - a tough angle to move that in
there ....

PLT-EVA Yes, they - they didn't have it that way in the


water tan_. It was where we could get to it.

SPT-EVA i remember that - that clearance problem.

326 22 16 00 PLT-EVA Okay, I - doggone it. I just keep coming back up


here.

SPT-EVA Okay. Okay. Where do you want to be? Right


there?

PLT-EVA That 's good.

_-- SPT-EVA Okay.

326 22 16 12 CC Skylab, this is Houston through Goldstone and


Corpus Christi for 12 minutes. Over.

CDR Hello, Bruce. We're in box ll on the road map


right now.

CC Thank you, Jerry.

PLT-EVA Let this come down some.

SPT-EVA Okay.

PLT-EVA Okay, that 's good right there.

CDR We tried cleaning both pots twice and powering up


and running a functional check. It Just didn't
work. So we finally gave up on the "cleaning the
pots bit", and we're now in the process of in-
stalling the Jumper box.

CC Roger. We copy. Thank you.


350 :-_

CDR At the moment Bill has gotten one side of the


three connectors loose and he's working on the
other side of them now.

PLT-EVA Working on the hard side now.

326 22 16 51 CC ... on those connectors, you want to back them


out" a little bit on each side at a time, don't
you?

PLT-EVA On these it doesn't make any difference. I did -


I drifted about an inch and a half too high, Ed,
if you can -

SPT-EVA Okay. Why don't you - -

PLT-EVA Oh, it's my arm. I see why you're having trouble.

SPT-EVA Yes. See, your right is the one that's -

PLT-EVA I can't engage that thing.

326 22 17 23 SPT-EVA You can't engage that thing, can you? I'll tell
you, Bruce, we got a littlebit of - - -

PLT-EVA ... Is there any way you can swing my feet back
over to my right?

SPT-EVA Okay.

PLT-EVA In the back. Now twist - twist me to the right


and my feet back to the right at the same time.

SPT-EVA Okay.

CDR Okay, you gt_rs. What about flipping him 180 de-
grees so his feet are in the opposite direction
and then Ed working on his shoulders?

SPT-EVA We could do that. What do you think, Bill?

CDR ... back out.

PLT-EVA That's good, let's try it that way.

SPT-EVA Okay. Going one ... - -


351

326 22 17 51 CDR Now, Ed, you ought to be able to see better what's
going on and you can help give him better bracing.

PLT-EVA Okay, now you're going to have to push me down a


little bit farther. I can't see it now. To my
left; that way. Okay, now I have to feel my left
hand ... these tethers.

326 22 18 13 SPT-EVA Hey, Bruce, we've got a bit of a problem with the
alignment on the - the down side of this. That's
the - the side closest to the flange, the large
flange which runs by and which supports the box.
I don't think these - screwdriver which we're
using Just won't allow us to get a straight pur-
chase on it - on the three screws on that one
side because the location of the flange so we're
trying to come in from an angle.

PLT-EVA I need for my head to go toward it.

SPT-EVA Okay.

PLT-EVA Up around ... my head, I can see right in here.

SPT-EVA All right.

PLT-EVA 0kay.

326 22 18 58 SPT-EVA Okay, I've got you. Watch your helmet.

PLT-EVA Oh, that's not the way to do it.

SPT-EVA Yes. I don't think we've got enough stabiliza-


tion - -

PLT-EVA ... Just a second. No, I didn't mean that, I


meant - that's a good position, I think ... Right
in here would be good if you can hold that.

SPT-EVA Okay. I got you.

SPT-EVA That get it? Did you get one?

326 22 19 5h PLT-EVA No. I may have. I don't know. It's hard to


tell. Boy, this tether loop is right in the
wrong place.
352

PLT-EVA Well, we'll know how to do it the next time, Bed.

SPT-EVA There you go; that's a good straight shot.

PLT-EVA (Laughter) Having to hold the attitude antenna


on there is a real hindrance, but of Course it'll
save it, too.

SPT-EVA Yes. We can't operate without that.

PLT-EVA Okay, right there. Can you hold that?

SPT-EVA Yes.

326 22 21 00 PLT-EVA That's a ... angle.

SPT-EVA That ... doing it.

PLT-EVA I don't know. I'll tell you in a minute.

SPT-EVA You can see the other ones on the - the other
side are loose.

CDR Give it lots of strokes, Bill. It seems to take


a lot more than you think is normal. -

PLT-EVA Yes.

326 22 21 33 CDR Hey, we Just flew over the Las Vegas area. I can
see Lake Mead down there.

PLT-EVA I need to go to ... let's see, right along in


here.

SPT-EVA Okay. I 'll hold you.

CDR We must be m-king descending pass right down


California.

326 22 22 48 PLT-EVA You can move my ... light to the left, I lost
sight of the screw. Oh, boy.

SPT-EVA Okay.

PLT-EVA ... that way.

SPT-EVA Yes, you got to - to your left?

PLT-EVA That 's good, right there.


353

326 22 23 12 SPT-_A Okay, good. I think you've got to move that


screwdriver a little to your right to get a
straight shot at it. It'll be perpendicular.

PLT-EVA ...

CDR Over BaJa.

PLT-EVA Once more.

SPT-EVA Say again.

PLT-EVA Let's try it once more.

SPT-EVA Okay.

PLT-EVA Man, wish I had a handhold, it'd be nice.

326 22 24 05 CC For CDR, Houston. Your X-axis momentum is up to


about minus 60 percent, so we're going to up our
bias offset from minus 30 to minus 45. Over.

CDR Okay, Bruce.


f--

PLT-EVA Oops, I can't see. I'm looking straight on there.


No, it didn't do any good at all. It Just - we
made the handle too big on this thing. It's half
the flange on this channel where there's -

326 22 24 _9 CDR Would the other screwdriver be any easier?

SPT-EVA Do you think you can get the other screwdriver in


- there?

PLT-EVA Oh, I don't - I don't have any confidence at all.

SPT-EVA That one, huh?

PLT-EVA No.

SPT-EVA I'll tell you what. Give it - give that a couple


more go's and we'll ... - -

PLT-EVA I'll tell you what. Get me back and I'll come in
from the outer ***

SPT-EVA Okay. Here you go.


B54

326 22 25 22 SPT-EVA I think one of the problems here is the visibility


in coming in perpendicular to the face of that.

PLT-_A I ... need to go towards my feet about a foot.

SPT-EVA Okay.

PLT-EVA Okay. Now a little bit farther towards my ***


Come down. Boy that's ...

SPT-EVA Watch your left - or your right foot. That's


the ...

PLT-EVA Right here, right here, hold it.

SPT-EVA Okay. I'll hold you.

PLT-EVA Can't quite approach it right. Now I'm going to


try to -

SPT-EVA Let me take the screwdriver there, Bill.

PLT-EVA Just a second.


--4

CDR Big problem Just getting it lined up, huh?

PLT-EVA Well, - -

SPT-EVA Yes.

326 22 27 41 PLT-EVA - - There - there's no way to line it up.

SPT-EVA There's a big flange, which we have the - the


tool kit on. It's Just too close to the center
line of this last screw.

CDR Oh, son of a gun.

SPT-EVA So you got to take and put the - put the thing off
at an angle and try to work it.

SPT-EVA Tell you what, let's give the other screwdriver a


try.

PLT-EVA Okay.

SPT-EVA Why don't you go on up there and rest a bit?


355

PLT-E_CA Where?

SPT-_/A Well, anywhere you want.

CDR Watch for that antenna.

PLT-EVA How's that?

SPT-EVA Yes.

326 22 28 23 CDR Your - your umbilical's swinging out there in


front of it.

PLT-EVA Okay. Take it very, very easy getting that um-


bilical back to the -

SPT-EVA 0kay.

PLT-EVA ...

SPT-EVA Okay, now I'm going to put this over on m_ - let


me see here -

CDR You have about 30 minutes of daylightleft.

SPT-EVA All right.

326 22 28 59 SPT-EVA You can rest there a minute, Bill. Flashlight


off.

CDR Watch out for that feed horn and that antenna.

- SPT-EVA I'm with you.

PLT-EVA _Imost looks hopeless.

SPT-EVA Wait a minute. Hold on.

326 22 31 ll SPT-EVA Well, i got - got it turned. Yes, I can screw


it, but boy it's ...

PLT-EVA Well, take a few turns and let me have it for a


while. Now, if you've loosened it, it may be that
I ***

SPT-EVA Okay, let me - let me loosen the other one.

PLT-EVA Okay.
356

326 22 31 5h SPT-EVA Tough to get visibility on this thing. Darn in-


sulation would stay out of the way.

326 22 32 _l SPT-EVA Got to be some way to get this insulation out of


the way, because I can't get mY eyeball down
there. See this little ... half inch of insula-
tion that Just keeps hanging out there.

PLT-EVA Yes.

SPT-EVA Tell you what, Bill, take the spatula - and try
to hold that insulation back, like that. I can
see the - the screw that I'm trying to get this
screwdriver into.

PLT-EVA Just a second, let me get down here a little bit.

326 22 33 30 SPT-EVA But not by much. No, a little toward the corner.
No, no, that spatula's in the way. That's not a
good idea; that won't work ....

326 22 34 03 SPT-EVA ()kay, I got a turn on it.

PLT-EVA ,.. it may grab them.

SPT-EVA Now, let me try the - Now, hold on. I'm - as


long as I'm making progress, let me continue a

the flashlight out, and I'll try to tighten that

throwing, isn't it?

326 22 58 58 PLT-EVA No, We got to push those connectors in.

SPT-EVA Oh, yes. Those don't have to be screwed in though,


do they?

put both switches to ON, push.

326 23 02 hh SPT-EVA Well, right now they've got them both to OFF, taped.

SPT-EVA Roll, zero. And pitch - what the heck would you
call that?

PLT-EVA Oh, about 30 degrees, or something like that, I 'd


guess.

SPT-EVA 30? Is that relative to the,- -

326 23 ll 23 PLT-EVA Relative to the bottom of that box there - bottom


of the - -
375

SPT-EVA Oh, I see.

PLT-EVA - - bottom of the MDA.

SPT-EVA Oh, okay.

326 23 ii 30 CDR All right. What this says is: The pitch pot is
shorted is our answer.

SPT-EVA Now wait a minute. It's not in the position it


was before, Jer.

326 23 ii 41 PLT-EVA Well, what's the criteria? Our - our problem, Jer,
is that we don't know exactly what the - -

CDR Okay, look. I - I'm - or - Did you see the antenna


move quickly to the zero position?

SPT-PLT/ Yes.
EVA

326 23 12 Ol CDR Okay. All that tells us is that the pitch pot is
the one that's shorted.

SPT-EVA Okay.

326 23 12 06 CDR All right. Now do you want to check it out by


doing a pitch pot check? No big thing.

PLT-EVA What 's that involve?

CDR All right, we just go down there and change the


position of those switches.

SPT-EVA Okay. Stand by.

CDR All right. Wait a minute until I get the power


off the antenna.

SPT-EVA Okay.

CDR All right the POWER is OFF; it's safe to go in.


Now what you want to do is to push PITCH, ON and
ROLL, OFF. Yes, we'll give that a whirl and see
what happens. '

326 23 12 41 PLT-EVA Man, that's hard to get to.


376

SPT-EVA Yes, you're right.

326 23 12 44 CC CDR, this is Houston. If the roll axis went back


to zero when you did it, proceed on to box 17.

CDR Okay. Don't you want us to check out pitch?

326 23 12 53 SPT-EVA We're already - got it configured that way. So


let's Just give it a go. Make sure we really
understand what 's happining here.

PLT-EVA Go ahead.

CDR We're going to check out the pitch pot, Houston.


Okay - -

326 23 13 ii SPT-EVA I'm clear. Bill's clear.

CDR You're - you're both clear.

PLT-EVA Roger.

326 23 13 13 CDR Here comes the - to STANDBY.

SPT-EVA Okay, there it is. Over.

326 23 13 16 CDR MARK.

PLT-EVA Looks like it goes over and wanders.

SPT-EVA Yes, well, it wanders in ROLL, but in PITCH it's


full - it's hard over.

PLT-EVA Right.

CDR Okay, so that is our problem. Let me turn off


the switches. Okay. The antenna's - yes, the
antenna's clean.

SPT-EVA Okay. What would you like?

CDR All right. Now we're going to go do - let's see


- box number 17, which is pin the pitch gimbal.

326 23 13 42 SPT-EVA Okay. Do we want to take an_ reverse the switches


we have now?

326 23 13 h6 CDR Yes.


377

326 23 13 47 SPT-EVA Okay. I will do that first. I'm going to put it - -

CDR In fact, you better do that, and we better check


it out; make sure we haven't screwed things up.

SPT-EVA *** idea.

CDR So, what we want here is PITCH, OFF, pull, and


ROLL, 0N, push.

326 23 14 13 SPT-EVA Okay, that's the way it is, and let me - let me
step back here a minute.

CDR Okay. When you're clear -

326 23 lh 18 SPT-EVA Okay, Bill is clear and I am clear. Go ahead.

CDR Here we go. Go to STANDBY -

326 23 14 23 CDR Now.

SPT-EVA Now it goes to zero and - -

F- PLT-EVA It Just flops around in pitch.

SPT-EVA Just flipflops around in pitch, but it goes to


zero in roll.

326 23 14 34 CDR Okay. Your antenna is now safe, Pin the pitch
gim - -

SPT-EVA Okay, so now- -

CDR - - pin the pitch gimbal.

326 23 14 38 PLT-EVA Okay.

CDR And you ought to be getting some Sl,nlight here


any minute now.

PLT-EVA All right.

SPT-EVA Okay. Let me understand how far we go here.


We pin the pitch gimbal and then - then what, Jer?
i

326 23 14 49 CDR Well, let's see; that's all, I think.

PLT-EVA That 's it.


378

SPT-EVA Okay.

CDR Then we pull it out.

326 23 14 53 PLT-EVA Thank goodness we didn't have to *** in it.

CDR Oh, you got to install a disabling plug, too.

PLT-EVA Okay.

CDR Don't forget that.

SPT-EVA Oh, yes.

326 2B 15 06 PLT-EVA Okay, I'm going to start working _ way back over
there, Ed.

SPT-EVA 0kay.

326 23 15 17 PLT-EVA This is - We'll use that ratchet that we fixed up


with the ball on it.

SPT-EVA I tell you what ; let's get over here and get
squared away so we can tether things again. You p_
got the only tether. So I'm Just going to have
to handhold mY flashlight here. Pitch lock; here
it is. Put a tether right on there.

326 23 15 47 PLT-EVA Also we've got to put the thermal cover on.

CDR Yes, that's right. You got to put a thermal


cover on the Jumper box, too.

- SPT-EVA I tell you what, let's - Well, we can clean that


one up easily enough. So - we would only knock it
off also while we're moving in here.

326 23 15 58 PLT-EVA Well, I tell you, you could do that while I am


taking this pitch lock out.

SPT-EVA Okay.

PLT-EVA And - -

326 23 16 02 CDR Okay, Sun - Sun's coming up, gang.


!

326 23 16 43 SPT-EVA Makes working a little easier.

SPT-EVA ... I think this thing is - -

PLT-EVA Man, that thing really is in -

SPT-EVA Okay.

326 23 18 13 PLT-EVA You understand how it goes on, don't you, Ed?

SPY-EVA Take a look at it here.

PLT-EVA Yes.

SPT-EVA If you *** in training, so I want to m-ke sure I


_-- doitright.

326 23 18 23 CDR Man, I wish - -

SPT-EVA Look through and see what's going on.

CDR - - you could see back behind you and see all
the flashing lights caused by all the little - -

SPY-EVA Yes, I know. That's what I was remarking about


before, when they first started.

CDR Boy, they look like strobe lights, they're so


bright.

SPT-EVA Also - -

326 23 18 36 PLT-EVA See that tad of Velcro there?

SPT-EVA Yes.

PLT-EVA You take this end, go that way. That's it.


You got it.

SPT-EVA No, I - -

326 23 18 h6 PLT-EVA No, it goes in the other way.

326 23 18 55 SPT-EVA Right foot out - -

PLT-EVA Slip it over the top.

SPT-EVA - - right foot out here a minute.

PLT-EVA Pat it - pad it around the sides.

326 23 19 12 CDR Looks like there's only about two pieces of that
silver tape left underneath there.

PLT-EVA That - this doesn't really have to be - As long


as that Velcro *** help if we did. So let's go
ahead.

CDR Did you get the pitch pin in, Bill?

PLT-EVA No, I haven't started on that yet, Jet.

326 23 19 30 CDR Oh, Okay.

326 23 20 13 SPT-EVA One big hunk of gray tape would do it.

PLT-EVA Okay, if you'll - -

SPT-EVA Where is that tape now? Here it is. Just get


it started.

PLT-EVA We have some tape. See on the - -

- 326 23 20 27 SPT-EVA Oh, on the other side.

381

SPT-EVA Ever try to straighten out fly paper?

CDR (Laughter)

326 23 21 05 CDR Some of those bits of foil are actually reflecting


enough light back to - so that I can see flashes
against the back of you guys.

SPT-EVA Yes, I've noticed that. I've noticed that.

326 23 21 13 CDR MY gosh.'

SPT-EVA I'll tell you, that sunlight - Oh, boy, that tape
just doesn't want to stick, does it?

326 23 21 19 CDR No, it's not very good tape at all.

SPT-EVA Anyway, we can get - -

PLT-EVA That 's all right.

SPT-EVA - - Give me one more, and we can get it up here on


the structure here.

PLT-EVA Okay.

CDR One more is all you got.

SPT-EVA Oh, I won't ask for more then. Here.

326 23 21 41 CDR It sticks nicely to itself though.

- SPT-EVA I tell you, I think that this stuff is a little


bit cool. That 's probably why.

SPT-EVA Got one tape.

326 23 21 51 PLT-EVA Don't put - don't put the tape at - at the


thermal control, Ed. That white square.

SPT-EVA Oh, okay, Well, let's see here.

PLT-EVA You - if you - that - if you could peel that one -

SPT-EVA I'll peel that one back so i%'s completely free.

PLT-EVA That's good. That'll keep the thermal peop *_*


382 ,'_

326 23 22 3h SPT-EVA That - that's not going to stick. Hey, I'll


tell you what, though.

PLT-EVA What can you do?

SPT-EVA The tape is so darn cold that it's Just -

326 23 22 59 SPT-EVA Okay, we got the Velcro on, and we've got it
around the side there. As long as we don't dis-
turb it while we're here, nothing else is ever
going to happen to it.

326 23 23 15 CDR You started to peel back the insulation, Bill?

326 23 23 19 PLT-EVA Yes.

CDR Okay, we got two allen-head cap screws to get


out. And those screws are not captives.

SPT-EVA We don't need them though, huh?

CDR No.

PLT-EVA *** could - do you - Could you hold on to me?

326 23 23 3h SPT-EVA Yes.

PLT-EVA Put tension on me to stop because I pushed myself


from this.

SPT-EVA No, let's see. See, I'd have to - I can't - -

PLT-EVA Okay. That's all right.

SPT-EVA - - do everything for you because you're


working normal to the forces I could put on you.

326 23 23 hh PLT-EVA Yes.

CDR Yes. (Laughter)

SPT-EVA Let me *** this stuff was done.

326 23 24 32 CDR You got 5 hours and 40 minutes.

SPT-EVA Well, let's see now; roll is the one that had
some crosstrack, isn't it?

CDR Yes.

SPT-EVA Well, that's good because - heck, they can always -


It might not give them a forward or backward
scattering with the pitch, but heck, they can do
a lot with roll.

CDR Boy, you sure can.

326 23 25 13 PLT-EVA Okay, you want - -

SPT-EVA Coming up again.

_-- 326 23 25 16 PLT-EVA Ed. (Clears throat)

SPT-EVA What are you doing, Bill? About to get it?

326 23 25 38 PLT-EVA I'm getting there. I Just - keep pushing my -

326 23 26 47 PLT-EVA Keep pushing myself back when I -

CDR Okay.

SPT-EVA Get yourself all lined up. Here, you want me


to hold the antenna? Would that help?

PLT-EVA Yes, that ought to help a ***

SPT-EVA Get yourself all lined up, and then use inertial
once - and a couple - a couple thrusts like that
ought to do it.

326 23 27 04 PLT-EVA *** come down towards you.

SPT-EVA Okay.

326 23 27 12 PLT-EVA 0ops' No, that's not going to work. If you can
hold that antenna right there.

326 23 27 44 SPT-EVA Want me to pull your foot down a little?

PLT-EVA Getting it -

SPT-EVA Okay.

326 23 28 05 PLT-EVA Got it.

SPT-EVA Attaboy. Okay.

SPT-EVA Yes.

326 23 28 16 PLT-EVA Oh, okay; stand by.

PLT-EVA Jer? Say again, Jer.

CDR Okay, go ahead and pull the launch lock out.


Is it out?

PLT-EVA *** come out.


385

CDR Beg your pardon.

PLT-EVA It doesn't want to come out. Stand by 1.

326 23 28 39 CDR Well, then you might have to rap it with a


ha_,,er.

PLT-EVA Why I haven't - *** sure I had both of them.

CDR The screws are not captive, Bill.

PLT-EVA I know, and they both - I thought - I was sure


I saw them both go.

326 23 29 05 PLT-EVA Out.

CDR They are?

326 23 29 06 PLT-EVA Both the screws are out.

326 23 29 08 CDR Okay. Probably, it's - you know, it's probably


a snug fit. If Ed could hand you the hammer, I
would tap that thing a little bit around the
- edges and see if you can'twork it out.

SPT-EVA Okay.

PLT-EVA Okay, stand by before you do that.

SPT-EVA Okay, I'll hand you the Pete Conrad cementer [sic].

326 23 29 33 PLT-EVA Okay; I'll take it.

SPT-EVA Have you got a - How about a tether? You don't


need that for a screwdriver any more, do you?

PLT-EVA No.

SPT-EVA Okay, take that off. I'll put it away. *** come
out of. I guess over here. Okay.

326 23 30 05 PLT-EVA If it doesn't work, get a bigger hA-,,er.

SPT-EVA Right.
e

PLT-EVA Okay - -
386

SPT-EVA Give me your tether.

326 23 30 19 SPT-EVA Guaranteed to fix by Pete Conrad.

SPT-EVA ... can fix that.

PLT-EVA Something therapeutic ***

326 23 30 38 PLT-EVA Let me get back over where I was.

SPT-EVA Wait Just a minute.

PLT-EVA You 're turning -

SPT-EVA Which way do you want to go?

326 23 30 h9 PLT-EVA There we go; like that.

SPT-EVA Oh, all right.

CDR Well, don't kick your heels; don't kick your heels.

326 23 30 58 SPT-EVA Going to have a face full of vacuum. Can't say


I blame him.

326 23 31 13 SPT-EVA Okay, be careful while you're there.

CDR Are you doing any good, Bill?

CDR You'll probably have to tap it three or four


different directions and then try pulling on it
some more. Possibly you'll have to pull on it
while you're tapping it. Don't club it; Just
tap it.

326 23 31 44 SPT-EVA Not any way of getting a hold on that thing.

PLT-EVA These wires are into it, see.

CDR Well, pull - use the wires to pull it. And then
Just tap it with the hammer as you're pulling
it out. Hopefully, that 'll work.

326 23 32 06 CDR I remember the - the backup unit was kind of a


pressed fit. It kind of popped when it finally
came out.
387

SPT-EVA Now let's see, what have we got that we can get
a hold on that thing with?

CDR You got some vise grips in there.

SPT-EVA That 's true.

326 23 32 24 CDR Still no luck, Bill?

PLT-EVA This thing is really on there. I'm afraid to


hit it -

326 23 32 33 SPT-EVA I thought I saw you budge it there.

PLT-EVA Yes, I think it broke a little hit then.

326 23 32 38 SPT-EVA There you go' That's the right direction. Now
hit it the other way; knock it back. There you
go; that - that's working it. At least we know
which direction to work it. Just keep your hand
on there. Now wiggle it up and down and pull on
it at the same time in that direction.

F 326 23 33 i0 PLT-EVA Ah' Whoo'

SPT-EVA Boy, that was not an easy one.

PLT-EVA That's like pulling teeth over ...

CDR (Laughter) You got it?

SPT-EVA Yes.

PLT-EVA We got it out.

326 23 33 18 CDR All right. Now get the manual gimbal lock and
verify that the handle is fully counterclockwise.

SPT-EVA Tell you what, let's bring this up. Give me the
hammer. I'll put it away, and - Hey, wait - oh,
wait a minute - oh, careful. Hey, hey, hey, your
hammer is loose there - yes. You can only Velcro
down there. Let me put this away.

326 23 33 57 SPT-EVA Sure wasn't an easy fix for _he work, but so be
it. Okay, come on over here. And - There's the
pitch lock.
388

326 23 34 05 CDR Okay, make sure the handle's fully counterclockwise.

SPT-EVA Bill, first of all we want to get it tethered.

PLT-EVA Okay.

CDR Watch your heels, Bill; you're at the window again.

SPT-EVA Lock it for you.

326 23 34 34 SPT-EVA Locked.

326 23 34 51 SPT-EVA Velcro it; let's stick it in there. Tell you


what; let me try it the other way. If this bolt
... hold *** darn thing right out.

326 23 35 12 CDR Watch out for the ratchet; there goes the ratchet.

PLT-EVA Oooh!

326 23 35 21 SPT-EVA Just a minute here. Hold on; let's - let's Just
regroup here. I tell you what - this blame ratchet's
going to help us out. We're going to put that
underneath here. Okay, now you've got that - -

PLT-EVA Is that all?

SPT-EVA - - and I'll put the ratchet away.

326 23 35 44 PLT-EVA Okay.

PLT-EVA Okay, Jet, you say make sure that this thing
- is- -

326 23 35 51 CDR Fully counterclockwise, Bill.

PLT-EVA That 's right.

SPT-EVA At least we were when we ... - -

PLT-EVA (Laughter)

SPT-EVA You know what it's like? It - it's like over


there in the - in the locker room. No matter -
two guys could be in there; they're always in the
same locker, right next to each other. Here we
are ; we got the whole frapping universe in back of
us, and we're both crowding in on the same spot.

CDR (Laughter) Okay, Bill, you checked that out?

SPT-EVA Got it full counterclockwise?

326 23 36 32 PLT-EVA Affirmative.

CDR All right. Now as soon as Ed gets a free hand


and gets you in position, we'll have Ed position
the antenna so that the gimbal locking hole is
visible through the mounting. Through the mount-
.... inghole.

SPT-EVA Okay, you get yourself aligned there.

PLT-EVA It's right there; hold it right there.

326 23 36 49 CDR All right, put it in.

PLT-EVA I can't - Just a second; I'm floating away again.

SPT-EVA Okay.

326 23 36 57 PLT-EVA *** misery working out here with no restraints.

SPT-EVA I tell you, you're ... - -

PLT-EVA Right there, Ed. You see the - got the picture?

326 23 37 04 SPT-EVA Yes.

CDR Okay.
e

PLT-EVA I got a bunch of clamps - -

326 23 37 08 CDR Place the gimbal- place the gimbal lock in the
mounting hole, aligning the dowel pins with the
390

threaded holes. Verify that when the engage -


when the latch is engaged.

326 23 37 26 PLT-EVA Oh, darn it.

SPT-EVA How you doing?

PLT-EVA Okay.

SPT-EVA You got it?

326 23 37 42 PLT-EVA Think so.

CDR Got it latched?

PLT-EVA No.

SPT-EVA Okay, pull it out. Do you see the hole?

326 23 37 h8 PLT-EVA Yes.

SPT-EVA Okay, is it centered?

PLT-EVA
No.

SPT-EVA Move it.

SPT-EVA Let me move it for you.

PLT-EVA Right - no, keep moving up a little bit. Right


there.

SPT-EVA Okay, I'll try to hold it right there. I got


to - -

326 23 38 0B PLT-EVA Okay, now I've got to hold the insulation back
while I put this thing on. This is what's causing !
me the problem.

326 23 39 14 SPT-EVA Wish there was some way we could hold this ... - -

PLT-EVA Okay, I got it.

SPT-EVA You got it?

CDR Is it latched? ,

326 23 39 18 PLT-EVA Yes.

SPT-EVALet'sverifyit. _-_
391
7

CDR Okay, check it. See if, by wiggling the antenna,


it's in pitch.

PLT-EVA Okay, Just a second.

SPT-EVA We have a problem.

326 2B 39 24 CDR Don't turn it; Just rotate it in pitch. That's


not pitch, is it?

PLT-EVA Yes.

326 23 39 33 SPT-EVA Yes, that's pitch.

CDR All right, if you got in the hole, then start -


turn the lock handle down eight turns.

SPT-EVA Now, how do we know that we really got that hole


aligned? Although it looks pretty much the same
way you pointed it out.

326 23 39 51 PLT-EVA Okay, wri - wiggle it.

326 23 39 5h CDR Okay, it's locking down, it looks like.

SPT-EVA Okay, it 's locking down.

CDR Just keep screwing it in, Bill.

326 23 39 59 SPT-EVA What have we got after this, Jer?

CDR What?

SPT-EVA What have we got after this?

CDR Then we got to make an electrical check of it and


see if it will roll.

SPT-EVA ...

CDR See if it'll go through its routine.

326 23 40 09 SPT-EVA Don't have anything else to install?

PLT-EVA Yes.

CDR Yes, you got a -

PLT-EVA The hardest one.


392

CDR You've got that - disable plug to put in.

SPT-EVA I remember that from training ; that is really hard.

PLT-EVA Okay, mau, it 's pins down.

SPT-EVA Okay, let 's move back here.

PLT-EVA Okay.

326 23 40 29 CDR All right, the disable plug's got to go in first.

SPT-EVA All right, okay.

CDR Yes.

SPT-EVA Okay, let's see. Where is that thing.

CDR I'm going to give you some words on that.

PLT-EVA Right here.

326 23 40 38 CDR You want to give it a shot first? Peel back the
insulation from the forward face of the structure
to expose the protective connector cap. And remove
the cap using the connector pliers.

326 23 41 07 SPT-EVA Okay, you got a good look at it?

PLT-EVA ...

SPT-EVA Say again, Bill.

PLT-EVA Oh, I thought - no, you can't see it, I guess.

SPT-EVA No, I can't.

326 23 41 28 SPT-EVA Here, let me hold you.

PLT-EVA Now then, just - if you can - if you could hold


that position, I would ...

PLT-EVA Okay, I got a visibility on the mm.

SPT-EVA Okay, why don't you try removing it by hand before


we try the real hard one. ,

SPT-EVA Got it.

326 23 42 08 PLT-EVA Got it, Ed, I got it.


393

SPT-EVA Okay.

CDR Okay.

SPT-EVA Now, come on over here, and I'll give you the-
inhibit.

326 23 42 27 CDR All right, got it.

326 23 42 30 SPT-EVA Okay, now you got to look at this master key.

PLT-EVA ... - -

SPT-EVA The master key is right at the top here.

CDR It says align the match marks on the disable plug


and then install the plug and rotate barrel clock-
wise to lock.

SPT-EVA Okay. You may want to look it over, Bill, but


the way I always worked those things is those
many visible alignment marks Just won't do it for
you. You Just line master key ... up.

326 23 43 26 SPT-EVA Your turn to be frustrated, Bill.

PLT-EVA I know. This is going to be -

SPT-EVA I'm going to pin some of that insulation out of the


way? That cap's getting in your way.

326 23 &3 49 PLT-EVA Cap's in the ws_v.

SPT-EVA I tell you what_ let me give you a piece of tape


and you Just tape it out of the way.

326 23 43 57 PLT-EVA Great.

SPT-EVA I'll try some gray tape. See if that works any
better. No, I'm afraid our friendly gray tape
is frozen solid.

PLT-EVA (Laughter)

326 23 _4 07 SPT-EVA Ah, gee. It's frozen. °

PLT-EVA Can you give me the screwdriver Just a minute?

SPT-EVA Ah, yes.


394

PLT-EVA I don't think I need to tether because I'ii Just


try one quick thing. If that doesn't work -

326 23 _h 23 SPT-EVA Got it?

PLT-EVA Got it.

SPT-EVA Okay.

326 23 44 40 PLT-EVA Okay, that's not going to work.

SPT-EVA Well let's see. Can you still work it on there


with that thing in there, do you think?

PLT-EVA Oh, yes, I can still do it.

SPT-EVA Okay.

PLT-EVA Tell you what, if - well -

SPT-EVA Let me put this screwdriver back in here. I hope


with out losing it.

PLT-EVA Yes - - -_

326 23 45 24 CDR Watch that heel, Bill.

PLT-EVA Okay.

SPT-EVA Okay, now - -

PLT-EVA What I want to do is raise my foot up and put


it on the ***

SPT-EVA Just a minute, Just a minute. Don't touch your -


you're - you're getting in the - in the tool -
getting in the tools. I'll gladly - Okay. Now
extend it forward a little bit where I can get a
hold of it. No, not that far forward. Okay, now.
Okay, there you go.

326 23 h5 49 PLT-EVA Okay. Now - okay. Now I need to go further than


that beam there.

SPT-EVA Which - down which way? 6

PLT-EVA Toward the toe ; toward the toe.

326 23 46 01 SPT-EVA Okay, you got your PCU in there. Watch it.
395

326 23 46 0_ PLT-EVA Okay. I'm going to try to ease my foot over there
in the SOP against the - ... now I moved aw_
from the mol sieve vent.

SPT-EVA I - hold you over there.

PLT-EVA Now, I need to come down to -

326 23 46 28 SPT-EVA Well, you're going to have to be on the other -


aSl on the other side then, Bill ....

PLT-EVA Okay. Okay. It was an idea.

SPT-EVA You think you could get at it the other way, with
your feet up in the other - completely up in the
other direction? Maybe with your legs around that
mol sieve vent or your feet straddling underneath
it.

SPT-EVA I'm thinking you can get your legs under there
somehow.

CDR Easy on your suit there.

z-- 326 23 47 43 SPT-EVA Well, there's little pieces of stuff - just go ...
Let me go ...

PLT-EVA Okay, that 's good.

SPT-EVA Okay. Here, I'll - I'll send it down in your


direction. There you go.

SPT-EVA N** going to come out of this shoe here a little


bit. Hold your head.

SPT-EVA Do you have an alignment mark there? On the


structure?

PLT-EVA 0h, no. •

326 23 48 28 SPT-EVA They had that. Oh, that white is Just to ma1_e sure.

PLT-EVA That's what they used.

SPT-EVA Yes.

CDR Is that it?

PLT-EVA No, no, no.

SPT-EVA Yes, your feet shifted. Get your left leg up


around the heel.

PLT-EVA Yes.

326 23 49 34 SPT-EVA Move your heel around there. There you go.
I'll hold your head again.

SPT-EVA Take your time, Bill, because all that requires


is Just a precise alignment.

PLT-EVA Yes, and now I - I tore all the insulation off to


give me visibility from the other side. Now I'm
over here.

326 23 50 08 CC Skylab, this is Houston through Hawaii for 3


minutes. Over.

CDR Roger, Bruce. We pinned the pitch axis and they're


at the moment trying to get the disable plug -_
installed.
- i

CC That sounds beautiful, thank you.

SPT-EVA ... in sight there.

PLT-EVA Yes, I got the ...

SPT-EVA Okay.

PLT-EVA You got the tether on my right arm. So I got


to -

SPT-EVA Well, look, we can switch that. Let's do that.


If you don't get lined up properly, you'll never
get it in there.

Ed.

SPT-EVA Okay.

PLT-EVA Now, I think I can make it.

326 23 51 35 SPT-EVA Just take your time and align it precisely. That's
all it takes.

326 23 51 h7 SPT-EVA Now you got it cocked towards me too much.


Towards me.

PLT-EVA Wait a minute, wait a minute.

: SPT-EVA It's not hooked. It's not hooked, Bill.

PLT-EVA Okay.

SPT-EVA It's got to go towards the spacecraft. The top


goes towards the spacecraft.

PLT-EVA All righty.

326 23 52 02 CC *** this is Houston; 1 minute to LOS. Next


station contact 25 minutes through the Van@?,_d,

SPT-EVA Do you want to try something different? Are you -


I

PLT-EVA No, - I - I almost got it the last time, you see.

SPT-EVA Yes, you Just had the top cocked towards me.
398

PLT-EVA If I can-

326 23 53 20 SPT Oops. Rotate it a little counterclockwise. A


little counterclockwise and then the hole will
have to line up - you have to line up with -

SPT-EVA Nov -nov, see if that one side -

PLT-EVA Yes.

SFT-EVA That's good.

PLT-EVA Okay, I'll try it again. Trouble is this mol


sieve vent is ... it hurt ... it under.

shorting plug off - or that - well - -

CDR Yes, that's right. We'll get to that in a


minute.

326 23 57 36 SPT-EVA That's not flapping around on there all the time.

PLT-EVA It's going through the proper protocol.

CDR Very good.

SPT-EVA See, it goes 9111 scale and then it works its way
back to zero and then full scale the other direction.

326 23 59 05 SPT-EVA Okay. Where's your tether, Bill? Oh, watch


yourself.

SPT-EVA No, don't unclip it, don't unclip it. Just

probably -

SPT-EVA Hold on. Hold on. I'll get it for you. I


better not move that. That tape is - -

CDR Hey, first of all, you've got to inspect the launch --.
lock for damage. Remember? They want it checked
for cracks - for pyro cracks?

SPT-EVA Oh, yes.

CDR So look at that. If it's cracked, then they Just


want you to tape it up out of the way, or tie it
up out of the way.

PLT-EVA *** all right except for little smudges.

CDR All right.

326 23 59 h7 SPT-EVA Except for discoloration, I think it's good.

as you can.

PLT-EVA Okay, I got it all except one spot.

CDR All right. Make sure those two white radiator


areas are clean. And, Ed, in the meantime, you're
securing the tools and are going to fold up the

all rolled up before we start trying to take it
home.

SPT-EVA See, I can't--

327 00 05 01 PLT-EVA Let me - I'll try to roll up this end.

SPT-EVA Yes. All right, just - just hold that. I don't

CDR There you go.

SPT-EVA Now Just a minute. Okay, let go, Bill.

PLT-EVA Okay.

CDR Don't yank it, Bill.

SPT-EVA Now, all we got to do is wrap these Velcro things

327 GO 05 56 SPT-EVA I think that what I'm trying to do - Gosh darn it'
I've lost the Velcro strap. Okay, we'll - let
me start from scratch here. Take it slow.

Let 's get another one.

CDR Okay, Ed, when you get it wound up, Just head
back to the FAS.

SPT-EVA Okay. Bill - Bill will follow, huh?

CDR Yes, Bill will be along with the foot restraint.

327 00 07 19 SPT-EVA All right.

CDR Oh, how neat and tidy you are.

SPT-EVA Well, I don't want this thing flying open on the


back, Jer. I won't be able to devote much at-

327 00 07 53 CDR Beautiful! Veritable work of art, Ed Gibson.

SPT-EVA Now watch me drop the whole frapping hag.

CDR You got it tethered?

SPT-EVA No, not yet, because I don't have a tether.

CDR You don't have a tether?

SPT-EVA My tether is left out here.

CDR Well, Bill - -

SPT-EVA Tell you what, Bill.

CDR - - Bill, give him that tether on your left arm.


You got two tethers left on the foot restraint.
How does that sound?

SPT-EVA Can you put - you put it on there for me? Because
I'mholdingon to the bag. _

PLT-EVA Okay.

SPT-EVA Thank you. Now.

327 00 08 56 CDR Okay, Ed, go on home.

SPT-EVA Bug out, huh?

CDR Right.

327 00 09 01 SPT-EVA Okay, Bill, I'm heading up over the top of you.

CDR Just follow your umbilical; it'll take you home.


Don't mess up the feed horn after all that work.

SPT-EVA Boy, I'll say. That would really rip it.

CDR Okay, Bill, you ought to probably tether that


thing to your left wrist before you take that out.

PLT-EVA I agree wholeheartedly.


_07

SPT-EVA The only place where there's any insulation missing


is the side that's facing the spacecraft.

CDR Yes.

327 00 l0 19 SPT-EVA Let me take a look at this umbilical mess over


here. Tell you what; we also want to bring in
some wrist tethers which we left up here. I -
Oh, boy.

CDR That foot restraint sure worked out well, didn't


it , Bill?

PLT-EVA Sure did. Beautiful.

CDR If Just that - if that pin had only had a better


ball peen on it.

CDR It looks like you're pulling it towards you


while you're trying to pull it out, and that's
what's doing it to you. Thataway. There you go.
See you on the other side, Bill.

_ PLT-EVAOkay.

327 00 ll 32 SPT-EVA I'll try to get these umbilicals squared away


in here, Bill.

PLT-EVA Oh, okay; that's all the working I'm going to be


doing.

SPT-EVA If I can get this -

CDR Watch out for the feed horn.

SPT-EVA There's T025; that darn thing.

CDR Doggone. That's a shame that didn't work.

SPT-EVA Sure is.

327 00 12 38 CDR Okay, Bill, as you go by and get ready to ingress,


take a look at 228 and make sure it is still
perpendicular to the clipboard.

PLT-EVA Yes. I've checked it, but it wouldn't hurt to


check it again Because those umbilicals can sure
do it to you.

j_
_08

CDR Did you get all those wrist tethers you wanted in, Ed?

SPT-EVA Yes, I believe so.

CDR Okay.

327 O0 13 37 SPT-EVA There he is. How long was it, Jer?

CDR Well, let's see. You're looking at 6-1/2 hours.

SPT-EVA Okay.

CDR Right now. You still got a few more things to do.

SPT-EVA Okay. What have we got to do?

CDR Okay. Is Bill in now ...?

327 00 14 01 PLT-EVA No, not quite. I was going to check the 228.

CDR Okay, t_ke a look at i_.

PLT-EVA Okay.

CDR All right, now before you get in, Bill, take a good
look at the EVA hatch - seals and see what condition
they're in. And look at the hatch dogs and make
sllre they're retracted.

PLT-EVA Okay. It has one little particle on it which I'm


going to brush off. Looks like just some ordinary,
garden variety crud. Like some lubricant seal.
Okay.

CDR All right. Take a look around the area and make
sure that everything's in that ought to be in;
all the trees - See, all you've got is VC tree,
right?

SPT-EVA Yes. The VS and VC are in here.

CDR All right, very good.

PLT-EVA Police the area, sergeant. There you are.

PLT-EVA Okay - -

CDR We'd better have the day off tomorrow.

SPT-EVA - - ... he's in the hatch.

327 00 15 _0 CDR Okay, EVA hatch closure. Panel 319, disengage the
hold-open rod.

PLT-EVA Okay. Stand by 1. That's not quite complete.

CDR Okay.

327 00 16 00 PLT-EVA Okay, it's complete.

CDR Close the hatch until the retainer is engaged.

327 00 16 07 PLT-EVA Retainer is engaged.

on; that's - Oh yes, that's B18.

CDR Okay. Got the hatch handle closed yet?

SPT-EVA Hold on. Hold on. Hold on.

CDR Well, I'm talking to Bill now. Bill, have you got
the hatch handle closed yet?
410

PLT-EVA No, I haven't got it closed; I've got to the

CDR Okay. Close it and make sure the lock's engaged.

PLT-EVA ... that little pin slipped in the way.

SPT-EVA Yes. I don't think you got the handle all the way
down there.

PLT-EVA Stand by.

SPT-EVA Bill?

327 00 17 16 PLT-EVA Okay.

327 00 17 17 CDR You got it? Okay, the EVA elapsed time was 6 hours
and 34 minutes even.

SPT Okay.

CDR Okay. Have you - panel 318 now, Ed. Have you
verified that DEPRESS VALVE's CLOSEd?

327 00 17 3_ SPT Verified.

CDR All right. Now, you're going to monitor the - the


lock pressure for about 2 minutes after closing
that valve.

SPT Okay.

PLT It's starting to creep up very, very slowly.

327 00 17 49 CC Skylab, this is Houston through Vanguard. We will


be dumping the data/voice tape recorder here. We'll
be with you for 9-1/2 minutes.

CDR Okay, Bruce; we're all finished. They're in the


lock and we've started to pressurize.

CC Mighty fine. That's very good news to hear. We


infer - fer from that the roll checks out good on
193.
d

CDR That's affirmative. You've got a good roll axis


and the pitch is hitting zero.
411

CC Beautiful, babe.

SPT Okay. What's your tolerance here, Jer? It's


coming slowly because we're here.

CDR All right. It says after 2 minutes, your press


lock indicator should reach about 0.2.

SPT Yes, that's about it; we've been in here - Well,


if you started timing, you add 30 seconds to that.

CDR Okay.

SPT And it's 0.25 now, so it's GO.

CDR All right; good show.

327 00 18 45 CDR All right. I'm going to start opening the PRESSURE
EQUALIZATION VALVE.

SPT Okay.

CDR Here it comes.

.... 327 00 18 59 (Alarm)

SPT Sounds like you've got problems, Jerry.

327 00 19 08 CDR Sure does get noisy in here.

SPT You got a RAPID DELTA-P_

CDR Yes.

SPT Anything else?

CDR Everything else seems to be all right. I'm going


to get it again here.

SPT What's the altimeter reading? Bet it climbed.

CDR I can't watch it and do this too.

CDR Sure was noisy.

327 00 21 21 SPT Up to 4.5, Jer.

CDR Okay. We're Just about equalized.


h12

SPT What's the step after you get equalized?

CDR All right. Just a minute; I've still got a thing


to check here. All right. I guess I can open the
hatch.

327 00 22 16 SPT Think it's h.5, Jer.

CDR Okay.

in usage between the initial filling and the new
subsequent one. I'll try and keep a closer eye
on that. I think we can probably melt it _long

The question was asked of me, late the day before
yesterday, for the data on calf measurement of
blood pressure measurement done on mission day 3.
I've done as much research as I can through the
Activation Checklist and through our Command
Module System Checklist, and as best I can tell
that data was recorded down on all three crewman
at 02:30 Zulu on that day. I checked in the
records that we have up here and I have full
data on myself and blood pressure data on the SPT,
and I'll - and that will follow.
i

327 19 27 07 CDR Okay, for mission day 3, I have no data for the
PLT. For the CDR, left arm blood pressure, 120
over 64; left leg blood pressure, 150 over 88.
422

Left calf was 13-1/8; right calf was 14-1/h.


For the SPT, left arm blood pressure was 140 over
78; left leg blood pressure, 170 over 92, and no
data on girth measurement. As I remember, that
particular day was a very confUsed day. We were
very, very far behind the time line and I have
a hunch that this is the only data that was even
gathered.

327 19 48 15 PLT This is the PLT, in reference to questions on


the T025 problem, I will take the questions in
turn. The following questions are asked in re-
ference to Nikon 01 with the T025 EVA viewfinder.
One: Is the viewfinder head loose with a gap
between the head and camera body greater than
about a checklist page thickness? The answer is
yes. On the - facing the back of the camera, and
looking into the viewfinder, it takes two standard
pages out of the body of the Activation Checklist.
I took 2 pages of Just that size in the rear of
the vlewfinder and almost three pages or ... on
the front side. When I originally installed the
viewfinder on the camera, it was difficult to
engage and yet when it was - when it finally
clicked, it didn't really give a satisfying
positive sound of engagement action, after that,
it w - it wiggled a lot; was loose. Question
number 2: Does the shutter speed knob extend un-
iformly into the cap, on the extension, approx-
imately one eighth of an inch? No. By measure-
ment, using the tape measurement we used for the
anthropomorphic measurement, it extended in ap-
proximately 1-3/h millimeters. If you want a
better gage, if you will look at most Nikons,
that shutter speed knob has a ribbed section on
part of it and a ribbed section on the little
creased part which gives you the finger grip
control is additionally more or less scored about
halfway in between the - the length of the rib,
which is about a little less than 2 millimeters.
It extended into the tube Just about that dis-
tance, Just about half of that little ribbed
distance.
42B

327 19 50 19 PLT Question number 3: With the viewfinder off, does


the camera shutter speed adjust knob freewheel?
Answer, no. Additionally, after we got the
camera back in it, and I was going to show the CDR,
last night, what the problem was. The thing worked
Just fine, which indicated to us that we may have
had a thermal problem because it was actually
spinning free. I would Just slip it on my finger
and it would spin free while we were EVA. Question
number 4: Is the spring clip inside the shutter
speed extension knob cap bent near the retaining
screw so that the grooved end is about half way
between the top and bottom of the cap? The answer
is, yes. It appears to be properly configured.

327 19 51 05 PLT Question 5: Is the viewfinder screen all the way


in the camera, below the level of the two holding
latches? The answer is, most probably, yes.
The problem in answering that question is this
particular - and - and I think - I think it
was well seated. Also, it was level enough so
that when I put the viewfinder head on, it would
have put it in position because I held the knob
down, the installation knob, release knob down,
__ while I was trying to wiggle the viewfinder in
position, so I am confident in giving a yes to
that, although there is a remote possibility
that there is some binding. However, I was
thinking, repeated installations which I have
performed that I would have gotten the - the
screen to actually seat on the little catches.
So I believe the answer to nlrmher 5 is yes.

as I experienced on the ground under similar
circumstances. The line never moved in a direction
other than expected and your data is probably going

out over the Pacific, it was probably about 03:50

some clouds which I took on a previous pass, and
that was at 02:30, in the same - almost the same
area in the Pacific. And there were quite a few
thunderbumpers poking up through and also a lot
of Benard cells and what looked like gravity wave-
lines of small, puffy cus spreading out from the
larger cumulus. John Kaltenback, Earth Resources,
may be interested in filing on this. I will give

thing is in - indicating empty on the indicator,

328 19 53 43 PLT PLT reporting a Jammed transporter number 6. I


had to take the transporter apart. The film had
Jammed it inside the transporter. Also, I'd like
to comment on the efficacy of the film vault in-
sofar as re - restraining or retaining or holding
the items that are placed into them. There are a
couple of - I can pick out three of what I con-
sider to be major design errors on the design
of the film vault. One is that there's a total
lack of engineering in mass harmony between the
b_1_y, heavy, massive doors and the tiny useless
dial latch that's used to hold them closed.

s 328 19 5_ 27 PLT The dial latch is continaully coming loose. You


can slam the left side of the film vault and the
right side will come open, which is a hazard to
the film. So the two dial latches were a very,
very poor choice insofar as a latch for holding
the doors closed and Jeopardize the storage of
the film. One of them is broken - the one on
the right side is broken and it's been taped in
repair. And this is the one that continually
flies open when you close the left side. Un-
less you notice it, you can walk off and leave
the right film door ajar. It had been seen to
swing open as far as a foot and a half.

CREW Bill, there 's a ***

328 19 55 08 PLT By the way, during activation that door was


found open, so the f_Im that was in drawers G
through L may have been exposed to considerable
radiation. And as I say, this is due to a -
what I consider to be an inexcusable design
error in using the dlal latc_ to hold those doors
closed. Also, there is no - nothing between the
drawers. There's no protection between the
drawers and items. The drawers are very, very
430 _

poorly designed in holding items that are - that


tend to be placed in it. The Teflon is useless;
it slides out of position. It does not hold a
position. The Teflon holders for the film hold
the film in, but they don't stay in the drawers. '
They float free. They're continually getting in i
the way. And items that float free from one
drawer will float up when you open the drawer
above it. They'll float up inside in space, and
when you get ready to close the drawer, you'll
slam it into the item that has floated in behind.
I have Ja-,_ed - hit the S019 film canisters twice
doing this, because they have floated out of po-
sition. And the re - retainer for one, and the
one I brought up for - there was no retainer for
it, and it's floated up and out of position.
And I'm going to try to jury-rig some restrained
item.

328 19 56 29 PLT So the drawers themselves have - the restraining


capability is almost nonexistent. The - all
of the cameras are loose, floating around -
Jiggling all around. And the Velcro straps are
useless because there is - A single Velero strap
is very minimal insofar as its ability to retain
the - a single camera that has a lens attached.
There was Just very, very little thought given
to design use for camera equipment. That,
together with the fact that there's no spacer in
between the drawers, has made the film vault a
very difficult item to use and it's Just caused
a continual waste of time in restowing items and
retaining items. And also, you really bent me on
the stowage on the one drawer where I - where
we brought up - all of the film - the - for the
Polaroid camera. That drawer is jam packed and
there's nothing to restrain any of the items.
And every time that drawer is opened, about 50
Jillion items come floating out of there. As -
again, there's Just - the item as a film vault
in one g may have worked, but if - there was very
little design expertise at least incorporated
into the design of this as a zero-g film vault.

328 19 57 51 PLT Comment on the cabinets in which our tools are


kept. The same criticism applies to the tool
drawers. There's no spacer between the tool
drawers. And tools - of course, with the Mosite
cutouts - again has - There was very little horse
43l

sense used in designing them. The very small


items which require a large percentage of the
total surface - the items in friction with the
Mosite - continually, because of the cutouts
have little surface in contact with the Mosite_
they tend to - to float out of position. Con-
versely, large items, like a crescent wrench,
have almost a 100 percent on the outside peri-
meter area in contact with the Mosite and they're
too hard to pull out. So - but anyway, the
same problem exists in the film drawer in that
seal i items tend to float free and get in the
way of drawers above, and when a drawer is pulled
out, and then when you get ready to close it,
it won't close. So I need to be - there needs
to be spacers between the drawers in stowage
areas.

328 19 58 59 PLT One other thing I've thought about on the film
vault and that is a high degree of chatter fric-
tion, I would call it, in closing the drawers.
The drawers are very difficult to move and this
causes a chattering as you close and open the
drawers, mainly on closing. But this tends to
