PAO Skylab Control, 19 hours, 48 minutes Greenwich mean time. Now about 10-1/2 minutes away from acquisition through the tracking station in Hawaii. We have about 2 minutes of recorded air-to-ground over this previous pass over Honeysuckle. We'll bring that to you now. CC Skylab, Houston through Honeysuckle for 7-1/2 minutes. PLT Roger, Hank. CC And, Skylab, for info, the coolant loops performed beautifully. We're all back to normal now. PLT Very good. CC SPT, Houston. If we can have a DAS, we'll crank in a nuZ update. SPT You have it, Hank. CC SPT, Houston. Whenever it's convenient, I have a I have an update for the S019 maneuver pad and it's due to the fact that the nuZ chan_ed a little bit when we did that update this morning with the sextant. SPT I'ii be with you in a couple of minutes, Hank. CC convenient. SPT, SPT the fine maneuver. CC makin_ minus Okay, the DAS Okay, just give me a call whenever it's is yours.

SPT Okay, Hank, the maneuvers are 50003, 51144, 51120 for a plus 103, minus 1.00, minus 0.0 minus 0.80. CC Roger. Good read back. CC Skylab, Houston. We're about 30 seconds from LOS. Hawaii at 59 and that*s about 13 minutes. PAO Skylab Control, 19 hours, 50 minutes Greenwich mean time. That concludes the recorded air-to-ground. ScZence Pilot Ed Gibson should be at the ATM C&D panel right now observing the Sun. Earlier today the Sun's active region 23 produced it's first flare. According to the Science people here at Mission Control, it was a sub-faint, no X-ray flare and it peaked at 14:31 Greenwich mean time. That region is still growin_ and has developed a broad but short filament. Imagine Ed Gibson will be watching that pretty _losely. We're now about 7_i/2 minutes away from acquisition throuKh tracking station in Hawaii. At Greenwich mean time 19:51, this is Skylab Control. END OF TAPE

PAO Skylab Control 19 hours 57 minutes Greenwich mean time. Space station is now nearing acquisition through Hawaii. This pass over the United States will go through Goldstone, Flordia, and Bermuda Just barely missing Texas as it goes over Canada during that portion of the revolution. We'll hold the line up live for acquisition of signal about 30 seconds from now. CC Skylab, Houston, through Hawaii for 9 minutes. SPT Hello_ Hank. Around 4 minutes ago we had a outer gimbal 3 on the STOP. Took us off the Sun and at the reasonable rate, went to STANDBY, 3 minute maneuver time, selected SI, and we're just working our way back there now. you'd CC had a - had Okay, good show, Ed. We - we saw that something happen there when we came AOS.

SPT Hank, if you folks can foresee something like that coming up, at least a possibility of it, you might alert us of it. I think we can handle it a little faster. CC Okay, I guess this is one we didn't foresee Ed. We - we thought there might be a possibility of some deset fires but we sure didntt think this was going to happen. SPT HT looked pretty good_ it was down there around 25 30 percent or so, but outer gimbal 3 was (garble) high. CDR Hankp the SOl9 prep is complete. I cycled one frame, extended one frame. And I didn't like the feel of it. It's not - it felt very very rough and I had to use a very very high force in order to get it into the slide or track position. I'm not so confident that we're going to be able to make muc_ use of this thing, I get the feeling that we could have another one of those jam ups anytime. CC Okay, we copy, Jerry. CDR Feels llke therets something definitely dropped out of alignment now, and you Just can't get it in the slide retract position without forcing it. I figure sooner or later we're going to have a crunch like on the other one. CC Okay, you may be right. I guess the only thing we can do is just press ahead and try it_ till we can't use it anymore. AI _ along that line_ awhile ago you voiced up to us that - or down to us that the - when you had the discone number i centered up. And I assume you the counter then at 00, that the discone was at the 6 o_clock position and before, I guess it's been a week or so ago

SL-IV MC2101/2 Time: 14:57 CDT, 1/14/74

60:19:57

GMT

when we did this alignment check, when the numbers read 0.0, the last two digits. We had copied that the discone was at 6:30. Now is there has there been a shift as you recall in the location of that discone when the counter reads 0.07 CDR That's affirmative, Hank. That's why I made that comment. The discone is - is now to the right by (garble) it earlier was at 6:30 or 7 o'clock and now it's at 6:30 - I mean at 6. So, we've definitely had a shift in what O0 is reading, not much but it's a shift. CC Jerry, at the conclusion of your SO19 ops today, would you mind if - if giving us another check on that? CDR Sure will. The way I figure if you get a little shift on an object up close that means a big shift on an object way out. Maybe I _ my thinking's foggy or something here, but if the dlscone which is only a few feet away shifts, something llke 2 or S feet then it seems to me a star is going to shift a whole bundle. CC Well, that's right. And angular shift llke that could cause us to miss a target. CDR That's right. CC Skylab, Houston, we would like to dump some more of the VTR off here this stateside pass, to help us in our measurements. And we're rewinding now, and it'll be available to you again after this CONUS pass. SPT Thank you, Hank. CC And Ed, co - if you can answer a couple of quick questions for you in regard to your comments on the clarity of the H-alpha i. What was the clarity after the back to back EREP pass? Could you tell any difference, had it - did it get a little better after not using it for awhile? SPT Hank, I don't definitely recall it as being real bad or real good. That was not on my mind at the time. So I guess I can't give you a real good answer. CC Okay, have you noticed any degredation of _ of other instruments on the same monitor? SPT No, I can't really - the monitor I don_t think is the problem. Although, I shouldn't say that. We_ve never really have run a test to verify that. And H-alpha is about the only display other than white light eoronagraph (garble) detail and a certain extent of - END OF TAPE

SPT (garble) is about the only display other than WHITE LIGHT CORONAGRAPH and really look for a detail then, and it certainly stands out very clearly in H-ALPHA. That'_s H_ALPHA i on MONITOR i. CC Roger. H-ALPHA i, MONITOR i, we copy. CDR Hank, would you send up another copy of chan_e 005 to the Maneuver Experiment Checklist and logs? CC Okay, we_ll do it. CDR Thank you. SPT Hank, when we got the gimbal on a stop and moved off of the position, we were pointed for the first building block 28. We were about halfway through that building block, (garble) standard but not complete. And we have just started taking exposures for 54 and on 56. l_ve not gone back and tried to redo that because the time is just starting on the second building block 28 out here on the llmb. If they'd like me to go back and try to get that sometime later today, if at all possible I will. CC Okay. WeVll - we'll talk about it and have word for you at Goldstone. We're about 20 seconds from LOS. Goldstone will be comin_ up in 3 minutes at ii. PAO Skylab Control, 20 hours 8 minutes Greenwich mean time. Now less than 2_i/2 minutes away from reacqulsitlon through Goldstone. Flight Director Charles Lewis has indicated that he'll be ready for a change-of-shift briefing in the briefing room in Building i at 4:15 p.m. central daylight time. We_ll hold the line up for this brief LOS period. Goldstone coming up in less than 2 minutes now. CC Skylab, Houston through Goldstone for 5 minutes and the maneuver load looks good. CC CDR, Houston. Your - your change 5 to the maneuver and checklist is onboard, and the Flight Plan and details got there ahead of it. And as a reminder, you've got your private call at 20:20, the next site. We're about i minute from LOS now. We'll be coming up on Bermuda in 5 minutes. CDR Okay, thanks a lot, Hank. PAO Skylab Control, 20 hours, 17 minutes Greenwich mean time. Spacestation now over Canada out of range of the Goldstone tracking antenna. Reacquistion through Merritt Island tracking station in Florida in about 3 minutes. Earlier comment by Commander Carr that he was having problems with the $019 film cannister advance lever. This particular cannister is the first one that was used on this mission. They%re had problems with it before. It was set aside and on Mission day 58, 57 rather, Bill Pogue indicated that he had problems with the second film cannister. And

SL-IV MC2102/2 TIME: 15:06 CDT, 1/14/74

then the next day, that would be this past Saturaday on mission day 58, he performed a malfuction procedure on the cannister. That cannister eventually broke completely though. Unfortunate chain of circumstances with this particular experiment. The film is held on thin metal strips by a nylon sleeve and according to principal investigator Karl Henize, the nylon sleeve is probably the problem. As it's getting stuck with the levers which retract exposed film and replace it with unexposed film, Science Pilot Ed Gibson should still be observing the Sun. And Pilot Bill Pogue should be in the middle of physical training exercises or getting ready for physical training exercises. Less than 1 minute away now from reacquisition of signal through MILA.

We'll have an LOS period of about 20 minutes as the next station will be Carnarvon, Australia. Pilot Bill Pogue should be doing exercise right now. A caution not to use the bicycle ergometer, that would upset the picture taking session as vibration induced by using the machine would cause vibration thoughout the entire space station.

CDR Hank, I've got the SAL window open and sighted out and the antenna can be put back where I had it two weeks ago by backing down to 7.8. So that's a 2.2 degree error.

PAO Skylab Control 59 minutes Greenwich mean time. Space station is now over the North Pacific Ocean, Just west of Washington state right now. We're about 3-1/2 minutes from acquisition through Goldstone. Skylab_s astronauts Commander Jerry Carr, Science Pilot Ed Gibson, and Pilot Bill Po_ue will break the previous space endurance record on this pass, set by Commander Alan Bean's crew. The record will be broken about 8 minutes and 27 seconds from now. At that time the space station will be directly over the Pacific Ocean, 200 miles west of La Paz and 800 miles south southeast of Los Angeles. The Bean crew, Owen Garriott as Science Pilot and Jack Lousma as Pilot set a space record of 59 days, ii hours and 9 minutes. Alan Bean still holds the record for most time in space. This, however, includes the time he spent as Lunar Module Pilot on the Apollo 12 mission. Bean's record is 69 days 15 hours and 45 minutes. The Skylab crew will break that record though, if all goes well, on Friday January 25, at 17:46 Greenwich mean time, 12:46 p.m. central daylight time. Jerry Carr_s Skylab crew has been in space 5,708 times longer than the first American, Alan B. Shepard. And 792 times lon_er than the first man in space Russian Cosmonaut Yuri Ga_arin who is up in the (garble) space caspule for 1 hour and 48 minutes on April 12, 1961. After 12 years and 9 months of experience in space, man is providing that the dark void beyond our atmosphere is not completely alien. And in fact can be quite useful as data from the Skylab mission continues to be interpreted here on Earth. Durin_ this pass we'll also be gettin_ the evening status report. Now less than a minute and a half from acquisition through Goldstone. We_ll go llve air.to.ground for this record breaking pass.

Crew should be in bed, powering down to go to sleep. Tomorrow's Flight Plan calls for Commander Jerry Cart and Pilot Bill Pogue to perform about 3-i/2 hours worth of experiments on the TO20 foot control maneuvering unit. This along with the M509 astronaut maneuvering unit are the two devices which will propell astronauts around in a weighless environment. Both of them use a gas as the propulsion unit, M509 usin_ gyroscopes in addition to the gas. Commander Carr and Science Pilot Ed Gibson with Gibson as the subject will also be performing medical experiments tomorrow. The M092 lower body negative pressure device will be measuring Ed Gibson's cardiovascular system and the M093 vectorcardiogram will be measuring electrical activity of his heart as he works out on the bicycle ergometer. M092 is the experiment of Dr. Robert L. Johnson of the Johnson Space Center, and the M093 is an experiment of Caption Newton W. Allebach of the Naval Medical Research Labarotry in Pensacola. Rounding out the day for Commander Cart will be some time spent at the ATM C&D panel looking at the Sun. Ed Gibson will be starting his day looking at the Sun, then he'll have some physical training and then later on in the day in the evening he_ll be performing JOPI2 F which is an alignment procedure for the S082A extreme ultraviolet coronal spectroheliograph and the S082B ultraviolet spectrograph. Both of these are experiments for Dr. Richard Tousey of the Naval Research Labratory in Washington. And Pilot Bill Pogue will be changing a thermal detector in the S192 multrispectral scanner, there are 12 such thermal detectors in the unit. These devices are endure flasks and are cooled and are spectrally separated from each other through a use of prisms and mirrors. These detectors are the actual devices which measure the thermal activity that the instrument is designed to detect. Bill Pogue will be changing one of those detectors and then after some physical training and his evenin_ meal he'll be aligning the S192 instrument. A total of 29 hours and 34 minutes of scientific experiments scheduled for tomorrow. Commander Carr gets off easy with only 8 hours and 21 minutes of them. Bill Pogue carries the heavy burden with over i0 hours and 40 minutes. We_ll hold the line up for this pass, once again not expecting any conversation as the crew should be asleep.

help pay for the legal expenses of John D. Ehrllchman, who is struggling to reestablish himself with a law practice specializing in environmental affairs. Ehrlichman resigned as chief domestic adviser to President Nixon last spring in the wake of Watergate scandals. Since then he has created a four-person Land Use Group designed to advise real estate developers on environmental protection laws. He also handles other, unspecified legal business. "Knowing what I know about the facts of the charges I think I've got good reason to be optimistic," he said of a dozen legal actions pending against him in an interview on Monday. New Attorney General William B. Saxbe's authority wilthin the Justice _Department may soon be tested by disputes between the _Bl and the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration. One conflict involves proposed federal control of crime records sent to state and local governments, and how far the federal government should go in policing those who control state and local crime computers. The other dispute concerns an LEAA proposal to take the job of gathering crime statistics away from the FBI and other agencies now involved in it. The Federal Energy Office, the FEO issued regulations Monday night that in effect will force owners of oil-heated residences to lower their thermostats 6 degrees, and that leave gasoline stations last in line for available supplies. John Hill, an assistant director of the FEO, said in an interview that gasoline stations probably would get about 15 to 20 percent less gasoline than the public would use if there were no shortage. Essential services which purchase gasoline in bulk were assigned all the fuel they need. Other commercial bulk buyers such as taxi fleets will receive as much as they did in 1972. The FEO has said _t expected to order - to order a cutback in gasoline production to a level 5 percent below 1972 production levels. But Hill said this was still under review and the situation might improve because of the unexpectedly high stocks of fuel oils accumulated during unusually mild winter weather. Taking first priority for gasoline are essential services including agriculture, emergency services, energy production, sanitation services, telecommunications and passenger transportation. The new regulations Monday and took were effect to be at 11:59 p.m. eastern daylight Home time heating implemented immediately.

PAO This is Skylab Control. LOS at Honeysuckle Creek after a quiet pass over the two Australian stations. Skylab IV crew began their 61st day in orbit this morning after having broken the record for a continuous time in space last night at 8:10 central time. Today the crew will observe the Sun during eight orbits of the Earth. Also today is a coordinated calibration rocket or CALROC launch to calibrate instruments in the Apollo telescope mount. The CALROC is scheduled for launch from White Sands missle range in Mexico at 1:30 p.m. central daylight time. Calibration of ATM instruments will take place during the three succeeding revolutions of Skylab after the CALROC i is launched. Some 6 hours and 23 minutes of ATM observing time is scheduled, with allthree crewman taking turns at the console in the multiple docking adapter of the space station. Today's ATM studies include looking at coronal structures on the east limb of the Sun, looking at the Sun through the Earth's atmosphere at sunset, and observing active regions of interest. The first chores for the crew after they are up and about will be preparations by Jerry Carr for flying the T020 foot control maneuvering unit while Ed Gibson takes photos of the student experiment on plant growth from rice seeds in the Skylab environment. Bill Pogue will stow the XUV electronographic camera, which heretofore has been used to photograph comet Kohoutek. The camera will be stowed until later this month, when more Kohoutek photography is scheduled with it. Jerry Carr is then scheduled to fly the foot control maneuvering unit while Bill Pogue assists him. At the same time Ed Gibson will be on the ATM console doing synoptic viewing of the Sun and looking at points of interest on the Sun which he feels will yield some useful data. Gibson will also put some television on the video tape recorder of Carr flying the maneuvering unit. In the afternoon Gibson will be the subject for the M092/M093 lower body negative pressure vectorcardiogram pair of medical experiments while Carr observes. Pogue is scheduled to change out a thermal detector in the S192 multispectral scanner right after lunch and later in the evening do an S192 camera alignment. Bill Pogue is scheduled to take handheld photos of the laser beam as Skylab crosses over the Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland at 4:15 p.m. central daylight. At 8:42 Carr has END OF TAPE

our most likely guess would be along the north-south neutral line in active region 21. 23's been inactive. The reason we feel for the general increase in the X-REA, the radio count, et cetera, is just for the general rise in AR 14 and 20/21, and we're sitting right now with an ambient X-ray level of pretty close to CI. It's not quite i0 to the 3rd but it's pretty close, so it doesn't take much to go up and over that threshold. Okay. Why don't I let you tell me about the Sun. SPT Well, first, at least sometime today could the people give me a feel for what has taken place in the active region 14 to cause it to become a good producer? So far as we've watched it move across the disk I was not too impressed with it. MCC To tell you the truth I'm not sure that anything new has happened. We were talking earlier to the extent that had this happened on the disk we wouldn't have seen any of it and it would have just been a i normal probably not a C5, but since it's on the limb with limb brightening, but I'ii get some more words up to you later. SPT Okay. First of all, the white light coronagraph. Last night when I looked at it I reported that there was a fairly well defined streamer which started at around 080, probably at 075 in reality, down to 090, that went almost radially out, very well-defined, and just slowly decreased in intensity, That's right where active region 14 was coming around the bend and perhaps we should have suspected something at that time, but now this morning in looking at it after the flare had occurred there is only a very bright but very narrow streamer at around 075. The remainder of that streamer which I saw last night has just faded away, or disappeared, there's just a very small amount of intensity in that whole general region. There is a very faint spike at around oh say, 085 or so which remains, but it's nowhere near the magnitude and size of the total streamer which we saw last night. The streamer which is at about 095, which was there - well, I should'nt say that it was not there yesterday, that there is one at 095 which is no longer parallel to the one up there around say 075. What it makes me think is that right out of the center of that streamer we saw last night material emerged and then caused the - just left the outside boundaries of it which tend to diverge as they go a little further outward. That's the picture I have in my mind. Of course I've not seen that happen, but looking at the monito that's what it reminds me of. We also have a very narrow streamer down at about i00 which was there last night. Over on the other side of the limb oh, around 300 centered on 300 is a broad diffuse streamer which intensity drop off rather rapidly as we go outward, and the two small streamers which we used to see at

and faint. Active region 23, fairly bright. I would say the ones which are the brightest on the disk are are all about the same level in oxygen, or I'm sorry, in the XUV monitor, are 14, 23, 16, 21, 20. Going back to 23 that's around 1000 counts or so, looks fairly bright. 15 is I didn't even bother going over and looking at it, it was so weak in the XUV monitor. 16 looks fairly large and - and about I000 counts in oxygen VI. Same for 17, although not quite as large. 21 was 2000 counts in oxygen VI. 20 was around 1000. They both look fairly bright. And right above the sunspot in active region 20, here's where I get a little confused is the active region 20 and 22 I have a tough time picking out what exactly is active region 22.

A couple of points here of interest on today's planning: the JOP 7, you have 14 minutes from 400 kilometers down to 40 kilometers because of the Beta angle. On our last orbit we've got a trunk if necessary on the BB-I. Should you be more efficient than the planning allows, we'd be happy to get it all. We could talk change 21 tomorrow, and S052 had some questions as to what happened last night with respect to the reenabllng of the discriminators. Apparently they somehow - SPT Yeah, I just apparently - just probably over looked that switch. That's all. That was my error.. MCC Okay, we were wondering if perhaps the i second wasn't enough for the logic. SPT No - no I don't think that was the problem. I get I get in the habit of closing that door manually and and then never - never hit that switch because I thought it was taken care of, and I just have to pay more attention to what's written explicitly.

To quote directly this section, another control moment gyro, number 2, bearing distress occurred on day 14, which was yesterday, at 4:55 p.m. The temperature for bearings i and 2 was the same, 78.4 degrees Fahrenheit. Currents were 1.03 amperes and wheel speed was 8870 revolutions per minute. The distress was not triggered by a maneuver. Also on day 14 at 5:02 the bearing temperatures reversed. That

is, bearing i was 78.3 degrees and bearing 2 was 78.5. Wheel speed was 8849 revolutions per minute and the currents remained the same at 1.03 amperes. A questionable period of control moment gyro 2 bearing distress was recorded on day 13, which was day before yesterday, at 8:10 a.m., but the bearing temperature differential was never equal to O. That is they never converged. Bearing i temperature was 75 - 75.5 75.7 degrees Fahrenheit and bearing 2 was 75.0 Fahrenheit. Current w@s 1.03 amperes and wheel speed was 8870 rpm. A review of average internal temperatures aboard space station Skylab: right after Skylab I, or the space station, itself, was launched and the unintentional jettison of the thermal shield, the maximum temperature was 125 degrees Fahrenheit. After the parasol was deployed in Skylab II, the maximum temperature rose to 82 degrees. And during the unmanned period between Skylab II and III, prior to the time that twin pole sail was erected, the temperature rose to 85 degrees. And the maximum thus far, after the twin pole, during both Skylab III and Skylab IV, the maximum has risen to 80.3. and during this current high Beta angle period, which still has almost three days to go before we begin getting sunsets - orbital sun sets, a predicted high temperature of 83 to 85 degrees is predicted. Over Carnarvon and Honeysuckle we had the morning ATM conference between Science pilot Ed Gibson and Scientist Astronaut Dr. Bill Lenoir. We'll be back in 23 minutes for stateside.

SPT Okay, Hank. At the beginning of the orbit I came over and looked at active region 14, had an oxygen VI count of around 20,000. I figured I'd get the building block 32 out of the way and come right back. As soon as I came back it looked as though we had something going. We had a point brightening going on at the time. However, I did not pick it up early because I was working 32. Soon as I got back over here I got on the point brightening and I got the - got us going in the flare mode. Oxygen VI count had gotten up around 58,000 and had tripped off several of the detectors. We got 56 and 54 it was going much in their flare greater then 20 modes. seconds 82A got because a exposure; the switch however, was not a

CC SPT, Houston; that plan sounds good. However, in addition we would like to run a - an S052 observation at the end of the pass since we had a limb event. SPT Roger, Hank, and will do. I was looking at the limb flares which gives us a guidance for building block 8 and that's why I'm not at Sun center now. SPT Hank, I think this particular one, I'ii point it out again, that unless we're in a flare wait mode we're just not going to pick up one of one of these things. There's no way if you're busy with the details of working the switches on the panel that you can pick one of these things up early. Got to be pretty much spring-loaded to it. and not operating - not filled with the details of the operating instrument. I think if we get a flare probability that is high we ought to just go flare mate -flare wait and maybe give 55 some truncated mirror auto rasters and leave it go at that and wait. We might not get any data for - for hours at a time, but that's the only way we're going to get the flare rise. sider We'll END CC that. CC see OF you at Roger; we copy that, Ed, and we'll con-

Also this rev the Tananarive voice relay station is back in business and will support. The fourth and final EVA of Skylab IV is now moved back to February 2 to allow better scheduling of the deactivation of the space station, stowage of return items, and crew sleep periods on that - on those days.

CC SPT, you're right there. The T 6 (?) 7 Delta is the only one you're to do but the run - there're three runs in that as I understand it, and the third one can be deleted if you're behind. SPT Hank, you're confusing me a bit by mentioning three maneuvers. The Delta only calls for a two-axis translation of the dog leg maneuver. CC Okay, on page 25-6 of the checklist there it calls out that - follow action during familiarization maneuvers. And this is the evaluation of the nonrigid restraint system. And then there is some TV of the rigid restraint system, and both of those - that's on page 25-9, and those are called out for either the SPT or the observer to do. And the last callout is way over on 25-18, which is to follow the two-axis translation in dog leg maneuver. SPT Okay Hank, the only thing I had on my tag was the Delta, so I was not trying to get any of the other material.

PLT Hank, I think - they're just a little bit over saturated for the period of time allowed today. We'll get what we can and talk about it later. CC Okay, don't sweat it Bill, just do the best you can with it. CC SPT Houston, we just figured out what's confusing you here. The - the TV photo - the TV ops - the TV op book is in error, or at least it doesn't agree with the maneuvering experiment checklist. The experiment checklist calls out three sections on the 57 D and your photo ops - TV ops books does indeed just call out for what you mentioned a while ago. CC Skylab Houston, we're about 20 seconds from a handover (?). It may drop out for a few seconds. SPT Houston, SPT. CC Go ahead. SPT Okay Hank, we got the TV finished up now. The - on the end of last orbit I got a look at the which was from - Stand by a minute. that Delta ATM at the corona and portion of beg - at the the region

SPT Okay Hank, I'm back with you. The streamer a very small streamer which we mentioned earlier this morning, which was present around 080, that is no longer there, probably as a result of a transient which occurred. We see it over in that area right now at - a bright streamer which runs from 065 to 075 and then an open space, where that very thin narrow streamer used to be. And that open space only runs out to around 3 solar radii where - where again a faint streamer appears. I cannot see the base of the streamer, however. It just all of a sudden appears somewhere around 3 solar radii. It may be very faintly attached to the streamer which is just north of it. That's the one from 065 to 075. It's not detectable here. Then from 08 - 085 on down to i00 there is another diffused streamer At the beginning standard mode at SHORT for 56 and the region where changing, so they a PATROL on. which has not changed at all in appearance. of the orbit here I came up and gave a Sun center and a patrol mode - yeah - PATROL now 55 is running off the limb looking at the surge was.

The first one was, you dropped out when you were giving us the Z reading as to where you ended up for the thermal alignment. If you - you gave us X of 500, we didn't Z. If you remember that, that might be of interest to us. Also, we were wondering on the visible alignment, did you ever have to go to the procedures that we - were uplinked in the message, or did you get a meter reading while you were in the procedures that are in the checklist?

SPT Okay Dick. I always though that their druthers were to get as long as possible and thatls what I was doing. And I was wondering because I didn't have to change the pointing. And if that is not the case why don't you have them give me some other instructions. CC Okay, stand by i. CC SPT, Houston, we would like to go ahead and terminate this one.

CC Skylah, Houston we_ve dumped the _TR. We brought it in real time here. It was a real good picture, we did not copy any voice during the dump if you did put in on therep however. CDR We didn't have time Dick, to even set it up we were lucky to get the TV. CC Okay, well we saw it as it came in. It looked real pretty, CC Did you really - really get the definition of the mountains and the islands? CC Certainly did it was good - it was good TV just about the whole dump and now the VTR is clean and it's all yours. CDR Okay, well if it's as good on the next pass, we_ll get set up for it and try to give you some narration with it. I might be able to get a pencil in there and point out some of the islands and tell what's what. CC Roger, and SPT, Houston you've got just about enough time to get a 5-minute sequence that's on the schedule pad for S054. We'd like to get that and Jerry back to you, your next descending pass after you pass the Aleutians will be right down the west coast of the United States and right above Baja, California. CDR Yeah, that looks like a real fruitful pass, if the Sun angle isn't too low we might be able to get some real good pictures. One thing you might notice on that TV is the way the Aleutian Islands seem to effect the weather up there. You notice the way the clouds the wakes and eddies are formed in the clouds by those islands. CC Yeah, I did notice several eddies and and some quite striking cloud formations, it would have been a lot more helpful for me personally if - to have had some voice narrating it, having a little bit of a tough time figuring out exactly what you were looking at. But it was real good TV. CDR Well this was on about 3 minutes notice. can get set up we'll do better. CC Well it was great, we enjoyed it.

He indicated that he would probably do the same thine again with voice. Also earlier in the day, Commander Jerry Carr about i0 o_clock this mornln E took some handheld pictures. He got pictures of the Galapagos Islands usinR the Nikon camera with the 300-millimeter lens. He indicated that he doubted that the pictures he took of the Glapagos Islands would come out. However he also got pictures of the Gulf of Fonseca, this is on the west coast of Honduras between E1 Salvador and Nicaragua and he also got some pictures of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

I got three questions on upcoming ATM pass. CC Okay, go ahead. SPT Okay, first of all_ I assume from the words that we got earlier that all of this is to be done at the left limb. And that the positions inside the limb as given on the pad, are correct. Second_ we were told that time of 13 minutes remaining when we were doing the 12E to change the last exposure 82B, wave length to WAVELENGTH SHORT that's one quarter, was worded at the end of the building block. That's a pretty short building block, I want to know whether they want to add that on or - or just change the existing exposure? And thirdly, what is the roll for the Sun centered work? CC Okay, we'll get you an answer, Ed. SPT Oh forget the Sun centered work. That's for the following orbit. Oh, I'ii - I'ii worry about that one afterwards. the CC Okay. CC CDR, Houston. CDR Go ahead. CC Roger, Jerry. Our TV people were working up a few technical inputs to get up to you sometime about the success of some of the out-the-window TV. Since it looks like we may have a good chance on this next orbit, on this descending pass next to California coast, they asked me to pass a couple of particular things to you. It turns out that the - if there's more than about a tenth of cloud cover in the picture, that at times the cloud tops are so bright, that the automatic light control in the camera closes down, and the Earth's surface is particular hard to see. So, during your out the window looking, and looking for opportune times to take some TV, those times when it's clear or very little cloud cover, provide real good contac - constract in particlar coastlines do turn up real well. We believe that this upcoming pass might be a good opportunity to slew out and take a look at the Salton Sea.

This will be a very short pass, about 2 minutes, as the space station will be very low on the tracking antennas horizon. We have the medical report from Jer _ Dr. Jerry Kordinsky. I'll quote, "There are 24 as yet medically unexplored days of zero gravity living remaining. Although there are no current clinical symptoms of concern, our knowledge of red blood cell mass loss noted in both SL-II and SL-III prompts us to more closely track the hemoglobin in SL-IV's closinz days." And parenthetically, Dr, Hordinsky says, "hemoglobin gives gives indirect indication of red blood cell mass." And this is the reason for the concern here on the of the hemolysis sticks as noted earlier. Those sticks are used to smear blood on glass slides for the hemoglobin sample. About 50 seconds away from acquisition. Commander Carr is already in his presleep activity period.

Today's Flight Plan is crammed with a variety of chores for Skylab IV crewmen, Jerry Carr, Ed Gibson, and Bill Pogue. Solar studies and medical activities occupy the major time blocks during the day with documentary photography, checkout of the EREP S192 camera, a navigation update using the command module sextant and a variety of preparations for flying the astronaut maneuvering unit tomorrow. The activity began with Jerry Cart and Bill Pogue taking documentary photos of staged activities, that include operating the manual navigation equipment, a student experiment ED41, motor sensory performance, an item called housekeeping 6OR, which is water purification, and operation of the teleprinter. Ed Gibson will begin the day's solar studies with synoptic observation of the Sun, followed by observation of areas on the Sun, that he considers will provide the most interesting data.

PAO This is Skylab Control. 13:06 GMT. Two Australian tracking stations Carnarvon and Honeysuckle Creek, combined pass coming up, about 15, 16 minutes, in 30 seconds. We're standing by. MCC Skylab, Houston. With the ATM conference. SPT Morning, Bill. I'm ready, go ahead. MCC Okay. A couple of quick things here on the Sun, most of it we've already passed up. Active region 21 continues to grow. To us it looks like the hottest and potentially best spot for a flare although it hasn't done much for us. The Sun spots are growing, but again, we haven't changed the flare probabilities, just because it hasn't done anything for us, and hopefully, it might just do that today. One note to remind you of again, I reminded you yesterday, is that you're looking at it. There isn't going to be anymore for the rest of the mission, so hopefully, we'll get something exciting out of what we've got. Then I've got some comments on today's Plan and actually quite a few because we're trying to do several special operations here. At 20:00 the pass that you do, with 33 minutes left, we say observing time, suggest shopping list 12 on coronal loops and active region 14. We were going to try to get you some word this morning from S055 as to whether they have seen them or not. Their quick_look data from yesterday is not in yet so we're unable to do that. However, Sac Peak does see loops in the green line of iron XIV and experience indicates that once you see these loops, they stick around for at least 20 to 30 hours, so at this point, it's reasonable to assume that you probably should find loops over AR-14. Hopefully, before you run it, we will have some S055 quick-look data back from yesterday and we will get that up to you. SPT Okay, we have a possibility of four lines in which to look for those loops. Have people narrowed it down as to which might be better essentially does the general message number 6 still hold as written? MCC As best I know, general message 6 still holds as written. Although, if we do get our quick-look data back, we will be able to tell you which lines we saw them best in on 55 and make the suggestion narrower. SPT Okay. From my experience on looking for loops when 21 was on the limb_ I know it's a time consuming task and if any of you have any hints from the groundp sure would appreciate it. MCC Okayp we_ll try to you. Okay, also, Ed, 15:14 which bit, we're operating - well, that's operatZons for 82B, similar to what the building block 4 and subsequent on the building block 5, in essence to get some thoughts up is coming up here in a the first of two funny we did yesterday. On orbits that Jerry does we're putting S - 82B

SL-IV MC-2162/2 Time: 08:06 CDT 01/16/74

62:13:06

GMT

into a shopping list 7 wait kind of thing, where we're saying to operate 82B only if the normal building block 4 or building block 5 pointing is consistent with the fluctuating bright points. So, that actually in pointing for 4 or for building block 5, if you eould find fluctuating bright points it would be consistent with the normal building block 4, 5 pointing for that JOP, that would be fine. Otherwise 82B wants to drop out. In the event that they do run, what they would prefer is the shopping llst 7 type mode, a short and a sequence of times a quarter and not what's depicted in that particular building block. So that the intent that's specified on the SAP would actually be accomplished. SPT Okay. The time you gave was what? 157 I'm stfll trying to find those specific instructions, I seem to - MCC Okay. It's not on here. SPT (Garble) MCC It's not on here as 15:14. It's the orbit that would have started at 15:14, if we weren't playing momentum inhibit games here. It's right after 15:07, is 250 K, down there where it says 63, time remaining 2A, building block 4A, active region you select. Down a bit it says, "82B change operate only as pointing at fluctuating bright point". And what I've just given you really augments that information. SPT Okay. Does it say or how would anyone know that we should be going to times one quarter on the exposure? MCC Unless you're clairvoyant you really wouldn't, unless you happen to interpret the SAP comment which says that it's looking for time development of fluctuating bright points as in shopping llst 7. If you interpreted that as meaning run like shopping list 7, then you would, otherwise we've done it in a very unclear fashion here. SPT Okay. (Garble) one times one quarter, I'ii write it in here explicitly. MCC Okay, and that's on - also applicable to the BB-5 at 18:24, that orbit for Jerry. And, again, don't let that interfer with the operations of the JOP2A, but to the extent it's consistent, that's what they would like. Also, here, we haven't said it per say, but whenever S054 has dropped out of the building block, for example, the building block 4, we were just talking about, they'd like to go to shopping list 31, which I'm sure you know. SPT 54 will? Okay. MCC Okay. And then the hard part. If that was the easy part. For several days now we have no real sunset. For example, on our JOP 7's today, we don't get the 40 kilometers, we get somewhere past i00 kilometers, but

dump, we have given you the 400 kilometer time and the 250 kilometer time. When you've got observations going, obviously, you know not to operate the entries below 250 kilometers, which is why we gave you those times. On your JOP 7 that you're about to do on the coming orbit, we're asking for a sequence of 9-second exposures every 30 seconds, from 2 minutes remaining down through 30 seconds remaining. Just a reminder here that 9 seconds is the duration of the first exposure of the continuous mode. Let that go ahead and when a operate light comes on, then you've got 18 seconds to go to stop without expending another filmAnd a nice long 9-second exposure gives us very good lateral smear since we're essentially almost tangent to the Earth surface here_ without smearing vertical very much. SPT Okay. MCC And, one last thought on that. Following both that momentum inhibit and the one later in the day that I believe Jerry does the JOP 7 on and Bill follows up, be careful. There's a trap. It may look like you're way ahead of the time game here, but when the ground enables momentum dnmp_ you're going to loose about 20 minutes on your time remaining counter_ so keep that in mind. SPT Okay. And just a note. I would hope the people would enable the momentum at the right time. Yesterday we were running one of these and when we got down to 4 minutes remaining they enabled the momentum and it all a sudden momentum END OF jumped into night to finish it up TAPE time and I had to go in, inhibit

MCC And one last thought on that. Following both that momentum inhibit and the one later in the day, that I believe Jerry does the JOP 7 on and Bill follows up, be careful. There's a trap, it may look like you're way ahead of the time game here, but when the ground enables momentum dump, you're going to lose about 20 minutes on your time reamining counter. So keep that in mind. SPT Okay. And just a note. I would hope the people would enable the momentum at the right time. Yesterday we were running one of these and when we got down to 4 minutes remaining, they enabled the momentum and it all of a sudden jumped into nighttime and I had to go into inhibit momentum to finish it up. Just a note enable the momentum before we done. MCC Okay, to make actually sure get that people don't the observations we didn't

right,

and we

realize

do it quite right yesterday and that_ hopefully, will keep people ,pre pm their toes today. And_ let's see. One other thought here. On SO54, to clarify their long exposures, in building block i, they want 17 minutes plus or minus i minute as depicted. On the other long ones they'd like as long as possible consistent with the pointing changes and so on. SPT Okay. That's the words that you had given me before and that was understood. Yesterday we were doing one which called for something on the order of 20 some odd minutes and it was geared to the length of the building block before we did the roll. We then had the second part of the building block where the roll was not applicable. We kept our pointing the same and I thought I'd go ahead and give them a nice long one at which time I got a call from the ground telling me to terminate the exposure. I gave them something like a 32_minute exposure. I thought that was what they were after. So, I'm wondering if the people could go back and take a look at that again and find out why I got the call in order to advance the film and not give them as long as possible. MCC Okay, Ed. We're i minute here from LOS. Honeysuckle is next in 2 minutes. And on that, my understanding is that there has been no 54 change there, and that you were right. And we've made a note here to make sure that we get all of our thoughts correct here. One last thought is, have you put JOP 21 - changed 21 in your JOP Summary Sheets? And if so, did you have any questions? SPT Just a minute here, Bill. No I had put 21 in. They're all in there and I understand what it says. MCC left. Sorry ever rundown Okay. I talked so you've got. Fine. And we've long_ but why don't only you got 30 seconds give us what-

The one over on the other limb, now, the west limb, we have some at about zero - at about 085 or 080. It goes out quite a distance and it's much more prominent than it was yesterday. That"s the one which disappeared when we had the activity on active region 14. It looks as though it has reformed and is still fairly strong. SPT Are you still with us? MCC Okay, Ed. Yeah. We copied that. You dropped out for just a little bit, but I think we got all the details there and we're through Honeysuckle now for 4 minutes. SPT Okay.

SPT Hey_ Story. Let me ask you a question about getting tke hemoglobin concentration measurement. This morning, the check, the way it was called out by detail, told me to go to certain pages of the checklist, which had me using pipette. When you use that, put the blood into a pipette and then try to put it out of the small glass slide that you finally put into the meter, yon find that the blood dries so darn fast that youtre going to up your concentration measurements, which is exactly what happened this morning when I did mine. I have not done the other two. I'd llke to see whether we could not Just take it straight from - the samples straight from the finger and put it right onto the glass slide and forget the middleman, which is the pipette.

CC Go ahead, Ed. SPT Story, the guys in the backroom with the 55 detectors may want to be watching where I'm pointing right now. We're in active region 21 and looking at a fluctuating bright point. The intensity starting out around 5000 or so when we first got on it. Right now we're seeing it going up to around ii or 12. And I saw this characteristic of this previous orbit while I was watching it for a short time also. We get rise times; we're decaying on the order of a minute or in some cases 30 seconds.

At 070 we have a faint one which is the edge of a fairly large group of faint streamers. At 080 we have one which we talked about yesterday disappearing when active region 14 had some activity in it. Had some very small streamers, almost looks likes just a diffuse area of emission close to the disk until we come around to a fairly a relatively strong streamer right around i00. We did come around at 220. There's an exceptionally faint streamer, I don't think I mentioned this one yesterday. It was there yesterday

and it's there today, and it's exceptionally faint. You can just barely - I cannot really see it in the photograph I have except for the start of it, but it does show up on the monitor.

CC Okay, we were expecting after you cleaned the heat exchanger fans today to get an increase in heat exchanger flow by about 50 cubic feet per minute. It turns out however that despite the cleaning you did we saw no flow increase. So I guess we're looking for sort of a

qualitative field from you as to the amount of debris that you removed this morning. And if you feel good about the fact that it was a good cleaning job and you can't improve on it, I guess we got to assume that we've had a transducer shift or possibly degraded flow due to some problem with that fan. And we'll be fa - planning a fan checkout or replacement, but we thought we would ask you about it first. PLT Okay, I took about five times as long this morning to do the vacuuming. I even reached down and with my hand and cut a couple of fingers trying to get into every nook and cranny. So I guess with five times the effort I didn't do as good a job as I did last time. One thing, you know, I might better do is go back and check the seating of all the fans, that could be the problem. CC Okay, Bill, that might be a good idea. One of the crews before found some real fine gray - real fine dust on the vanes that - I believe that was in Bean's mission. But it might not hurt for you to recheck the seating, cause we're not seeing the flow we need to see. We're going LOS. I'll give you a call a couple of minutes from now in Guam.

I'm going to turn all four fans off and reset them and then turn them on again. CC Okay, Bill we'll be watching it and you can let us know your opinions of the cleanliness when you get all through. Give us a call. PLT Well, now I understand the vanes down there have always been clogged up. What I consider clogged up with gray - what looks like lint. There's been no change since - since we got here - since we found out what part of the heat exchanger actually required the cleaning. And although you take the, well I - I use the tool with the round brush on it. And although you hold it very close to the vanes, and it gets the face of them and rub it back and forth, and tamp it up and down and so forth, you never get all that stuff out of there. So it is very difficult to tell. I use a flash light in my mouth, and one hand on one side of the flapper valve, and the vacuum cleaner tool on the other and I was pushing the tool around with one hand well down into the - next to the heater exchanger. So that was the technique I was using and I can't see how I can really improve on that except with a better vacuum cleaner. CC Roger, I sure with we could get a TV picture of you working on it, it sounds like a lot fun. It seems that we recall that Bean did find some way to get it pretty clean. But we saw, I recall that - that at one point we did get a significant increase from flow. I'll give Jack a call over there, he's over in the office and see how they did it. But why don't you go ahead and see if you can reseat them and we'll take a look at the flow again. CDR Roger Dick. And tell INCO to hold up on the teleprinter. The printing is not coming through clear at all. And I think we're going to have to put a new load of paper in. CC Okay, we're holding up. CC CDR, Houston. INCO says he's in the process of uplinking the third flight plan. Did any of the other two come up - come out usable, or when you get it changed out should we uplink all three of them again.

CDR You will need to do all three. They're real streaky big patches of them are missing. The tenth message that came up which was that general message 30 had a patch, you know sort of a faint patch in it so we reseated the head, hut that didn't seem to do any good. So, why don't we just change the paper this time. CC Okay, we concur. CC Skylab, Houston, we're 45 seconds to LOS. Goldstone comes up at 22:00. CDR Okay, Dick it well be in when you come up so just send up a test message. CC Okay, Jerry sure will, thank you very much. Hey, Jerry one item for you as we go over the hill. Sometime this afternoon before you or Bill gets to the 509 prep, we would like you to read us the pressure that reads on the two SOP serial numbers 006 and 013. We'd like for you to read those gauges as accurately as you can. The increments on the guages are about 400 psi. We need to make a descision about tomorrow's 509, which SOP we're going to use. PLT I just made an inventory about 5 or 6 days ago, Dick, and those are very accurate readings, as accurate as I can read them. We CC also want to make Roger, Jerry, darn sure we we did get that information. don't have a leak on either

one of those things which is one of the reasons we want to get it again. We did intend to get it again when you get a chance this evening. CDR Okay_ What numbers again? CC 6 and 13. PAO That concludes the recorded air-to-ground which took place over pass over Guam tracking station. Space station now nearing acquisition through Goldstone. This pass will take it though Goldstone, Texas, and Merritt Island launch area tracking stations. Changeover has taken place here in Mission Control. The purple team is now on. Flight Director Phil Shaffer and Spacecraft Communicator Dick Truly. About i0 seconds from acquisition of signal now. We'll go live air-to-ground. CC Skylah, Houston, we're AOS stateside for 17 minutes. CDR (Tapping) That was a woodpecker saying Roger. CC (Laughter) Rog, that.

CDR Okay, we're not using it. CC Okay. PLT Dick, PLT here. I - I vacuumed down in there along the sides facing the heat exchanger vanes, and replaced the fan. I'm really at a loss to figure out anything else to do other than just try to rig up some tool to - to try to clean out between the vanes. There is an awful lot of material in between the vanes, but it's just not accessible with a vacuum cleaner brush. PLT And that stuff has been in there since we were here. That's why I assume it probably was collected during the early part of the first flight. CC Okay, Bill for now why don't you not worry about it. I'm I am - I did have a call in to talk to Lousma and see if they had any thoughts that might not be obvious, but we'll be getting back to you. PLT Okay. END OF TAPE

CDR First, teleprinter message looks pretty good Dick. It's a little bit weak on the left side and I Just loosened the (garble) nd tried to pull it up even tighter. So go ahead with the next one. CC Okay, Jerry. Thanks for letting us know. Incidentally, you were just going over the hill when you asked about those serial numbers on SOPs. The serial numbers are: 006, and 016, and I think those are the two that are down in the experiment compartment, but you probably know better than me about that. CDR That's affirmative. They're down hanging on the walls there. CC Okay, we do have the numbers that you read us the other day. And so when you sometime this evening why don't you read them again for us. And let us know. CDK Okay. CC PLT, Houston. I just talked to Jack on the telephone for a minute about cleaning the OWS heat exchanger. He didn't have any spectacular suggestions to make that were - that would have obvious to him and not us. So are - he did say that they had used the crevice tool in conjunction with the vacuum cleaner to - to get some of the grey matter out. And that helped a lot. And he suggested that if any of it was clumped up in bunches enough so that it might be - could be actually picked up but it was you couldn't get your fingers in there. You might use the little tool, and I'm not sure what's the name of it is. But it's the little snake tool where you push on a button on one end and it opens up to little fingers on the other end to pick - that was designed to pick up stuff in odd places like under the grid and so forth. You might consider that anyway. PLT Okay, Dick (garble). I'ii think about it and try to get on it later on this evening when I have a little spare time. CC Okay, Bill, thank you much. We're about 30 seconds from LOS. And you're going to go the long way around, Goldstone comes up at 23:36. And the Flight Plan messages are on board. If you've taken a look at all of them INC0 would like to know how the rest of them turned out. CDR They came in real well, Dick.

PAO Space station Skylab now over the hill from Merritt Island launch area's tracking antenna. A little bit of confusion here at ground control. Elevation for the pass over Vanguard is about 1.9 degrees, the antennas just barely looking at each other. Like to clear something up, apparently there's been some confusion as to how many glitches or funnies on how many control moment gyros, in how many days. According to the Guidance and Navigation Systems officer here at Mission Control, on mission day 60 which was Monday, control moment gyro number 2, the prime gyro means left, the out wheel of the speed two went experienced a down. Bearing normal funny, temperatures which went

up and current went up. Also, on Monday, mission day 60, control moment gyro number 3 experienced low temperatures, and high current, however, there's no way of determining what the wheel speed did on control moment gyro number 3, as that tranducer went out, this past October, 99 days ago, on END Skylab-I, OF TAPE elapse time, day 148.

SL-IV Time: 1/16/74

PAO did on control moment gyro number 3 as that transducer went out this past October, 99 days ago on Skylab I, elapsed time day 148. Or the 148th day that the workshop has been in orbit, the telemetry device which reads wheel speed for CMG number 3 quit functioning properly. Since that time, it has been indicating a speed of 3774 rpms which is wrong. On mission day 61, or yesterday, control moment gyro number 2, once again, the prime gyro left, experienced another normal funny, which means current went up, temperature went down, wheel speed went down. Today - this morning, control moment gyro number 2 experienced then abnormal funny - or a glitch glitch. As the wheel speed went down, however, there was no temperature or current change. And the GNS officer here in Mission Control tends to believe that that is due to faulty telemetry rather than a true anomaly. So, once again, on Monday, we had two anomalies, on control moment gyro number 2 and number 3. The one happening to number 3 is currently unexplained. Yesterday on mission day 61, we had 1 CMG anomaly - that was CMG number 2, and this morning, we had another CMG anomaly, also CMG 2. This one at at the moment anyway is attributed to faulty telemetry. And as Milton Windler indicated earlier, the one which happened this morning, nobody is particularly concerned about it. Some conversation over this path over the United States with Pilot Bill Pogue, who earlier in the day, vacuumed the heat exchanger in the workshop, one of the ducts. Apparently some concern as there was low airflow through that heat exchanger. Nominal airflow is 160 cubic feet per minute. Just as we lost signal through MILA, it was reading 152 cubic feet per minute, down but not downed significantly. Currently, CMG number 2 is 50 rpms low, it's now turning 8850 times, it should be 8900. Also, an update on MII0 medical experiments biomedical officers here in Mission Control indicate that hemolysis sticks which are used to smear blood on glass slides which are then inserted into an optical device which measures the relative density of the subject's blood against a color background to indicate the hemoglobin count. Three sticks are used per experiment. That's one stick for each crewman. Apparently, Commander Carr used two sticks this morning. There were i0 sticks remaining, and there are 3 as of this morning, there were 3 scheduled runs for that particular medical experiment. There are now 6 sticks remaining and two runs, or exactly the number of sticks remaining for the number of medical runs remaining. The concern from the surgeon and biomedical officers was that hemoglobin count in astronauts who have been up in space over long periods of time decreases and they would like to get some additional data on that, as the mission nears its completion.

However, they haven't come up with a procedure on how to get more than 2 runs out of 6 remaining hemolysis sticks. Currently, the interior temperature of the workshop is hovering between 79 and 81 degrees. Exterior temperatures at the hottest spot, the thermal shield is 280 degrees - that's Fahrenheit. 4 minutes before acquisition through Vanguard. This pass should last about 2 minutes, and then we'll have a very long period of loss of signal as the workshop misses all tracking stations until Goldstone.

excuse me Texas. Evening medical conference took place moments ago. We'll bring that to you when the flight surgeon brings it to us. Earlier comment, crew requested a time for maximum beta angle. That'll be about 8 minutes and ii seconds from now. Space station Skylabs beta angle will be minus 70.9 degrees. Space station temperature, however, will continue to go up over the next 2 days. The electricial and life support officer here in Mission Control, the EGIL, informs us that is a function of the insulation on the space station, as the insulation will continue to absorb heat over a period of time, much as a house gets hotter in the afternoon, long after the Sun has peaked out. So, over the next couple of days, the 19th of January, we were told the space station will peak out temperaturewise and then will start to cool off. However, less than 8 minutes from now beta angle will reach maxium. Temperature inside the space station right now is hovering between the 80 and 81 degree mark. Comment from the crew is, the temperature they indicated at the time was 79 degrees, however, they said, it wasn't too uncomfortable. That's about the first time they've mentioned the temperature over the past couple of days, so apparently it's not bothering them too much. Next acquisition will be 7 minutes from now.

Press on Dick.

CC Okay, here is one on T002, Bill. We noted in - in noticed in the data some large boxes in the sightings including the zero reading. And the data is sort of similar to a couple of sessions in Bean's mission. And - when the transparent wardroom window protective shield was left on and we were just wanted to confirm that the sheet shield either was or was not removed for this particular sighting. PLT That might have been it, I'm not sure. CC Okay_ one other quick one Bill. And before I do we're about a minute from LOS, Tananarive at 00:29. Another one is you reported a triangle shoe failure. We wanted to know a little bit more about that. What were you doing when the right shoe failed, and do you have any comments about the design as to whether or not you think that contributed to this particular failure? And also what kind of loads did you have on the shoe at the time it gave way? PLT I had my foot in a triangle in front of the film vault. And Ed to move the door had hit the side of my foot. (Laughter) And I think however in all due respect to Ed that - that that metal had already been fatigued. CC Okay, we're going over the hill here. If _ if you did want to add any more about that why don't you just put it on the voice recorder, and we'll pick it up. Thank you much Bill. PAO Skylab Control, 11 minutes Greenwich mean time.

This congestion was noted by the pilot yesterday, and the science pilot and pilot today. The hemoglobin flunctuatlons noted are not associated with any current clinical symptoms." The decongestant used was Afrin. That's either a-p-h-r-i-n or a-f-r-i-n. We haven't got the correct spelling on that yet. And the hemoglobin fluctuation, we commented on earlier. Long space periods, tend to decrease the concentration of hemoglobin in the astronautVs blood system. Now about 5 seconds from acquisition. We'll hold the line up. CC Skylab, Houston.

PAO 1 hour 15 minutes Greenwich mean time, Skylab Control. Tracking station at Goldstone, California is down for this pass. Problem is a power outage at the tracking station, no antenna support. Have an additional piece of information on something we gave you earlier. The decongestant that Bill Pogue and Ed Gibson took earlier today is Afrin A-F-R-I-N, that's a brand name, and it's a liquid. It's a simple topical decongestant and it's administered by dropper. The astronauts inhale each drop and it atomizes in their nose. Also reference, the space station's thermal problem during this high beta angle period which we've already passed. Beta angle is decreasing now, but the temperatures that we noted earlier will continue to get hotter through January 19. Some specific instructions to the crew members as the space station heats up inside. Currently, it's up in the 79-80 degree range. Very little deviation from the different stations in the space station itself. Almost all of them between 79 and 80 degrees. The crew members are to operate both pumps in the primary airlock module coolant loop, and they're to minimize power usage inside the workshop. They're to turn off as many speaker intercom assemblies as practical. They're to reduce the lighting, they're to eliminate the use of high intensity lights except when required by the flight plan, and that would be during a period where they were using the television camera or the data acquisition motion picture cameras. And then they're requested to record the number of intercoms that they've turned off and the ground also asks for other suggestions. Also, all M092 runs are scheduled in the morning. It turns out that the space station has the lowest temperatures in the morning. The M092 is the inflight lower body negative pressure device. And there are to be no maneuvers if the resulting space station temperature is higher than 82 degrees at the time of the M092 run, or if resulting temperatures above 85 degrees are longer than 3 hours. And in the event that the inside temperature exceeds 82 degrees, they're to minimize workshop activities and concentrate on their activities inside the multiple docking adapter. And the crew has been told that they can sleep in the most comfortable location, and it turns out that the same thing is true for this crew as was true for the first Skylab crew, Commander Conrad's crew. And that is if they want to sleep comfortably and cool, they can take their sleep restraints back to the Apollo command module, which is approximately 4 degrees cooler. All three crew members have indicated that they sleep uncomfortably when the sleep compartment is over 80 degrees. Right now, the sleep compartment temperature is 80.3 degrees Fahrenheit.

time, Skylab Control. That concludes the first playback of recorded air-to-ground over Vanguard. We've experienced some release line difficulties and the beginning of this recorded air-to-ground which took place over Vanguard was not altogether clear. What we're going to do, we're going to record this current pass over Tananarive and that will follow a replay of the preceding pass over Vanguard. So, what you will be hearing will be recorded air-to-ground which took place about 25 minutes ago over Vanguard, followed by Tananarive which is being recorded now. Okay, we're going to replay the recorded air-to-ground which took place over Vanguard starting now. CC Skylab, Houston. We're AOS the Vanguard for ii minutes. Bruce is standing by here to discuss 509 run with you tomorrow. Before he does I have one item. Since we lost the Goldstone pass a few minutes ago, we got out of sync on our commanding to the CMG heaters. We - we're - GNS is going to turn the CMG number 2 bearin_ heaters on here at the Vanguard. We need to ask you to set your portable timer, for a time of 02 plus 05 and turn the heaters OFF. Those commands are listed on the CMG number 2 heater cue card. SPT Okay, Dick, that's 02:05 is that correct? CC That's correct. Thank you very much. SPT Okay. CMG number 2 heater OFF will get that command off the cue card. Let me give you a frame count. 10013, 1943, 117, 172, 2640, 5884. CC Okay, Ed. I got it. We're dumping the data/voice recorder here. And I'm going to turn it over to Bruce. MCC Okay, Jerry. If you're standing by there. I've got a few minutes worth of discussion on the upcoming M509 ops for you. Over. CDR (Garble). MCC Say again. CDR I said, go ahead. MCC Okay, I'm on the loop here as an M509 investigator this evening. And we thought it'd be worthwhile since there are a number of items we want to hit to do it this way rather than trying to send up additional teleprinter pads. First off, with respect to the scheduling of the runs, due to the press of other mission activities and the approach of the deactivation phase, we probably won't be able to sched all of the remaining five runs that were carried in the prelaunch baseline. So, to adjust for this we've cut out the balance of the handheld maneuvering unit operations. And

SL-IV MC2189/2 Time: 21:03 CDT, 1/16/74

63:02:03

GMT

we've rearranged the runs in order of decreasing priority. And specifically that order that we've selected is your suited run, Bill's suited run, your last shirt sleeve run, and then the two shirt sleeve runs for Bill, if the time becomes available. We've rearranged your upcoming run, that is -3 Charlie, so as to emphasize the highest priority items. The opportunities tomorrow and on day of year 66 are ideal from a Flight Planning scheduling standpoint and as they fitted naturally into some blocks of time, that were not other wise occupied by EREP, ATM, and things of that sort. But it may be getting a little bit warm up there for you and that was another factor in our consideration of deleting the HHU - MU ops particularly suited. If it does get to hot for you, why feel free to discontinue the run, and we'll try to regroup down here for another opportunity. If you're overheated the data probably wouldn't be all that good anyway. Over. CDR Okay, I copy, Bruce. And breaks my heart to lose that HHMU time. MCC specifically, we've Okay, looking at tomorrow's inserted a set of rotational run cal maneuvers

in the direct mode, as the first item and the highest priority on the SOP operation. It's important thatwhen you do this we get full i second ON commands, to get good integratable data from the rate gyros which are being used as sensors, while you're flying these cal manuevers. We've also rearranged the SOP baseline runs, so that the rate gyro baseline immediately follows the cal maneuvers, reflecting its second priority. As we've gotten no rate gyro data suited with the SOP at all, on previous mission. Following that the baseline maneuvers and CMG indirect, should be flown until SOP exhaustion. And while we're on the subject of the SOP, we'd like to remind you per the checklist to please insure that you've got a full PSS. And a fresh battery prior to starting the SOP part of the run. It's our desire that you not depressurize the PGA from when shifting from the lightweight LSU to the SOP. However, if you feel you'd like to do that for your own comfort, or to take a quick break, we'd like you to please repressnrize on the lightweight LSU and then shift over to the SOP, so that we don't use a large part of the gas in the SOP just for building up the pressure inside the suit. Does that sound okay with you? Over. CDR Understand, Bruce, that's fine. MCC And listening to your comments on on this morning about T020. It's our understanding that the configuration in which you left TO20, it will have to be moved or laid down in order to permit moving the release

on the M509 donning station to permit undocking - CDR That's right Bruce. We've already moved T020 down into the experiment compartment. MCC Beautiful, you're way ahead of us here. Okay, on the subject of maneuvers. For the tumbling object retrieval and the freely floating object fly-around, we're looking for the largest most massive object that's handy and that you feel is appropriate. I guess either the portable water tank or the SL-III backup parasol on the TO27 long type canister would be fine. But whatever you want to use is your option. The dump voice tapes that we've listened to suggest, that previously when you did the tumbling object retrieval, you sort of flew out to the tumbling object and impacted it without spinning yourself up. The object of the maneuver if we interpreted your your voice tape correctly, the object of the maneuver is to see how accurately and delicately you can - END OF TAPE

MCC - - with a tumbling object and impacted it without spinning yourself up. The object of the maneuver if we interpreted youryour voice tape correctly the object of the maneuver is to see how accurately and delicately you can place yourself on the spin axis of the object and spin yourself up match rotational rates, close in and grab it and then finally despin as a single entity. Over. CDR Okay, we'll give it a whirl. We cert certainly didn't do that last time, and we'll try it. MCC Okay, might fine. And we have suggested a lot of discretionary maneuvers, and we also recognized that you may not be able to complete all of them. So don't feel badly if you don't get all the way through. And in the checklist we have a little phrase in there, repeat is required. And in thinking about it ourselves we just wanted to say that is intended to mean. Quit when you are satisfied with the way that the maneuver worked out. And if you have time prior to the run, you might take a look briefly over section 6 of the maneuvering experiments checklist since it's been a few weeks since the last run. On the subject of communications, we'd appreciate hearing comments especially from Bill as appropiate during station contacts. And particularly if you have any stowage problems or any other problems with the - the run. We have a back run room full of people, but we can't do much in real time unless we know what's up. And then of course back to channel A to resume voice recorded commentary after he talks to us. You inside the suit, of course, will have no comm using this lightweight umbilical or the SOP, so you might brush up on your hand signals before hand, We're suggesting that you rig up the lightweight umbilical CCU kludge per page 17-3 of the maneuvering experiment checklist and then just stow it out of the way in order to have it handy in the event that something comes up and you do want to talk to Bill in real time. But we prefer that you do not use it while maneuvering if you can avoid it. Over. CDR Okay, understand Bruce. MCC On TV-36B in spite of the checklist changes the SPT is scheduled to have a window for handholding the camera during the run. If Bill feels like he can handle it he can provide other coverage if he's not to busy chasing your umbilical. We'd prefer coverage with the TV camera near the floor rather than the dome and profile shots if possible. The coverage that we particularly want is: i, is one of the exploratory maneuvers, 2, some footage with the lightweight umbilical and 3, other items as appropriate. You've got 25 minutes available on the video

tape recorder with the possibility of more depending on how the dump schedule goes. You'll be needing 4 PSS for this run. After using the first one the observer should recharge per the top off procedure. We're using that instead of the normal procedure since the four bottle supply is only 700 psi while the two bottle bank is up to 2350. Your option, you could put it in start a charge and leave the PSS in the station to fill while you pick up the run, or how ever you want to play that one. Wrapping up here on the subject of checklists and your recalling the shortage of cuff checklist bracelets. One possibility we suggest is the use of two long velcro watchbands over the extended first and last pages of the cuff checklist to hold it in place, but that's up to you Mr. Goldberg. And in restructing the checklist for tomorrow we did not attempt to rearrange or recalculate the maneuver times of the individual maneuver elements. We thought this would probably just be more trouble for you all to enter and change in the checklist that was worth. So just press on through in sequence and have a good flight. Over. CDR Okay, Bruce thanks. MCC Rog, you've got about 30 seconds till LOS, Tananarive in 14 minutes at 02:02. I'ii turn it back over to Richard here. right CDR off MCC PAO hand. We Okay, Bruce can't think of any questions may hit you with some in the morning. Okay, mighty fine. Skylab Control, 2 hours 14 minutes.

That concludes the second replay of recorded air-to-ground which took place about 30 minutes ago over the Vanguard tracking ship. We have 6 minutes and i0 seconds of recorded air-to-ground which took place about 4 minutes ago over Tananarive. We'll play that back now. CC Skylab, Houston, hello at Tananarive for 9 minutes. And since we don't have any data here at Tananarive why don't you let us know when you turn the CMG 2 heater off at 02:05. PLT Wilco, Dick. CC Okay.

An agreement to separate Israeli and Egyptian forces along the Suez Canal is about 90 percent complete, and none of the obstacles remaining is a "gut issue," a high-ranking U.S. official reported after Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger returned Wednesday night from more talks with Egyptian President Anwar Sadat. Israeli - Israeli Foreign Minister Abba Eban conceded after talking with Kissinger that the American mediator had made "certain progress" on his latest visit to Sadat. But he cautioned that there remained some (garble) - some substantial points to be clarified. Over around Britan a 100_mile wind whipped up 50-foot waves in the English Channel Wednesday night and today, drowning at least 14 persons and sinking a 781-ton Danish coastal freighter. Another ship, the 2,447_ton Cypriot freighter Marta, was on fire, and her captain radioed that the 20_man crew could not launch lifeboats because of the high seas. Indonesia's capital was quiet once again today as Prime Minister Tanaka of Japan flew home after a visit that sparked 2 days of student riots. A helicopter took Tanaka, his daughter Makiko and President Suharto to the airport, where cabinet ministers - members and foreign diplomats said goodbye. But no students were on hand. Tanaka arrived Monday night and spent his entire visit in the heavily guarded presidential palace compound because of the violence Tuesday and Wednesday. At least seven persons were killed in the street battles that grew out of demonstrations accusing Japan of economic colonialism. The South Vietnamese government

reported today that two Red Chinese warships are guarding a settlement established Wednesday by Chinese fishermen in the disputed Paracel Islands. Saigon's chief military spokesman said the trawlers landed the fishermen on one of the coral islands of the South China Sea Wednesday, and the men set up huts and planted their flag. Then the warships began to patrol in the area, the spokesman said. South Vietnam and China - Both South Vietnam and China claim the Paracels, which are a chain of coral reefs about 250 miles east of Hue, South Vietnam and 170 miles southeast of the Chinese island of Hainan. The spokesman said a South Vietnamese unit is stationed on one of the islands about 9 miles from the one the Chinese landed on. The government's top wage controller has forecast bigger contract settlements this year. "I would expect that the normal forces that operate on wages will result in higher settlements in 1974," said Director John Dunlop of the Cost of Living Council. The forecast by Dunlop may indicate a relaxation of the administration's pay guidelines. Pentagon sources said a Soviet-made antiaircraft missile used by the Arabs in the recent Mideast war may have been overrated. Technical analysis indicates the SA7 warhead was not powerful enough to destroy more than a few of the Jets it did hit. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is entering the investigation into who could have erased a portion of a taped presidential conversation. An FBI spokesman said the agency was asked to investigate by special Watergate prosecutor Leon Jaworski. Meanwhile, a court inquiry into the tape erasure continues. I've got a handover coming up here, shortly, to Bermuda and I'ii stand by and pick up with the news after the handover is complete. CC Okay, we've get you through Bermuda. And, again picking up with the news. The American Petroleum Institute has released figures which appear to signal a tightening of the Arab oil embargo and a worsening of the gasoline shortage. The White House says its spending on President Nixon's Watergate defense is dwarfed by the cost of Watergate investigations. A White House official said the spending by the White House for this fiscal will probably total about $600,000. The official says the special Watergate prosecutor has a 2.8 million budget, the Senate Watergate committee $1.5 million and the House Judiciary Committee i million.

Ehrlichman said former presidential energy adviser John Love failed in the job because he was a White House outsider who could not get his hands on the Washington levers of power. Love, who resigned as governor of Colorado to take the post last June, was "inan almost impossible position," Ehrlichman said. "He just didn't have the levers available to him." Love left the Job December the 3rd. Ehrllchman, who resigned as President Nixon's top domestic adviser affairs adviser last April, said Love's job as energy adviser required the "pulling together of vying and competing efforts of the executive branch" of government, a Job too tough for an outsider.

Skylab space station is now over Eastern Europe out of range of the tracking antenna at Madrid. Our next acquisition is 34 minutes away and that will be at Honeysuckle Creek, Australia. There was a earlier acquisition scheduled for Carnarvon. Apparently that station's been taken down. At this time, during the pass over Madrid we noticed again an anomaly on control moment gyroscope number 2. This anomaly seems to follow pretty much the traditional pattern. The difference in temperatures between the two bearings used to allow the control moment gyroscope to maneuver are - has come down. It normally runs in the 2 - to 3-degree area, it did drop to about a 1-degree difference. That convergence of temperatures is part of the tradit traditional signature of this CMG when it has its anomalies. Also, the wheel speed dropped another approximately 1/2 percent, and the current increased by about i percent.

That's about 1/2 percent and increase from about 1.02 amps to about 1.04, 1.03 amps for 1 to 2 percent increase in the current. So that is still in progress at the loss of signal at Madrid. It was not observed at the last time we had acquisition before that. Our last acquisition_ however, on our tab is Carnarvon, Australia. We did not have data on our monitors from the U.S. and Bermuda stations, so it may have begun some time after Carnarvon. The present time the temperature in the workshop of Skylab space station is a warm 80 degrees today, as its orbit around the Earth is keeping it constantly in the sunlight. To take advantage of the special circumstances_ Skylab astronauts began photographing and scanning the Sun early this morning. A total of 8 hours of data gathering is scheduled today. This afternoon Skylab Commander Jerry Carr will fly the nltrogen-powered backpack. The maneuvering unit has undergone through testing within the workshop to determine its usefulness for work in space. The crew will also conduct medical experiments and a science demonstration today. To keep temperatures to a minimum no maneuvers are planned as the crew completes their 9th week in space.

We're now beginning to get data and apparently that anomaly on control moment gyroscope number 2 is still underway. Temperature difference is now about 0.2 of a degree, the current still up about 2 percent, and the speed is still down about 1/2 percent at the beginning at acquisition at Carnarvon. Does appear now that it's moving back down but it still an anomaly appears to be in progress. CC Skylab, Houston; AOS Carnarvon. We have you, oh, about 15 minutes here through Carnarvon. CDR Roger, Crip. CC Skylab, Houston; believe the purple gang did good work for you on your details last night, I didn't have a bunch of messages to read you up this morning changing changing your pads. One item for CDR. Jer, can you tell me whether boric acid in - in the bags was ever discussed with you? I knew that you did get a card - cue card on it. CDR No, we haven't talked to anybody about it since we got the new card. CC Okay, the only thing I wanted to mention I know you had called down questions about it since the original - the card before this one, had deleted all of that. And the FMT went back and reviewed that that logic for deleting it and they concluded that because you are essentially breaking new ground in the portion of the space mission that you're in that it would be advisable to go ahead and use the boric acid to protect ourselves against the loss of both refrigeration loops and losing all of that urine data. So that's the reason that it was put back in. And per your request on day 69, we are planning on scheduling somebody to go ahead and put all the boric acid in the 15 bags that will be required for the rest of the mission. CDR Okay, that's good, Crlp. That's the most economical way to do it. CC CDR Rog. And that is in our planning Thank you, sir. right

The convergence has gone to the point where it's actually now moved bearing number i, which is normally a little bit warmer then number 2, is actually a now a little bit cooler while bearing number 2 has warmed up about 0.3 of a degree above the bearing i level.

CDR Roger, Story. PAO Skylab Control at 13:26 Greenwich mean time. Skylab space station is now over the North Atlantic after a pass over the U.S. and Bermuda stations. We're about 3 minutes from acquisition at Madrid. Today a medical review is being performed to determine the state of the crew health before giving approval for an additional 7-day mission extension. That's a regular weekly extension that's planned after the 59-day - after the 56-day nominal mission. This today concludes the 9th week in space for the Skylab crew, and the approval is expected to be given sometime today for an additional week in space beyond this. Another approval will of course be required then continuing approval - approvals every 7 days until the conclusion of the planned 84-day flight. That anomaly on control moment gyroscope number 2 appears to be over at this time. When we had acquisition at Merritt Island and Texas during this last pass data showed the currents had come down to their normal level, and that temperature divergence again had come back up to the area of about 1-1/2 degrees, that's moving back towards the 2- to 3-degree level that's considered normal, and the wheel speed had again started moving back up towards the 8850 mark that has now become the standard. The 8850 mark after talking with the guidance officer, apparently that is a normal response. The transducer has just shifted {is readout. Doesn't indicate anything of significance except that transducer has moved in the number that it - it's producing, even though the wheel speed itself is not believed to have changed at all. Wheel speed at 8850, apparently corresponds to what the transducer had been giving as 8912 a few days ago. So wheel speed now is back to its normal level after an anomaly that lasted about an hour and a half. We'll bring the line up llve again now for pass through Madrid. The pass is an 8-minute one. We're about a minute from acquisition there. END OF TAPE
