PAO Skylab Control, Greenwich mean time 12 hours 45 minutes. Skylab in acquisition with the Carnarvon tracking station in 45 seconds. We'll bring the line up for this Carnarvon pass. CC Skylab, Houston through Honeysuckle for 9 minutes. SPT Hello, Hank. CC Was that you, Ed? SPT That's affirm, Hank. How are you doing this morning? CC Oh, pretty good. How about yourself? We got a - hey, while I got you here we sent up an ATM schedule update, which you probably saw there, message number 7438 Bravo, and it affects your two ATM passes. I think you're well aware of what we're trying to do on JOP 7, and this pad here will help you get the data we need in order to do JOP 7 tomorrow. That's our last chance tomorrow at it. SPT Okay, Hank. Sorry we didn't get it last night, but I'ii talk with Bill Lenoir a little bit more about it. I have not seen that update yet. I've been working on ii0. CC Okay. Just wanted to make you aware that it was there. PLT CC Hank, PLT. Go ahead.

PLT Couple of quick items, Hank. First, one of the reasons that I thought the RFM (?) wasn't working right because it was not reading zero, it was reading just off zero, but it was reading the same on all scales, so I was getting an indication but it was the same on all scales selected. So I think that was on tape, but anyway I wanted to mention that. The second, an unrelated item; IRII_ would you check out the original camera that it was installed in? I think I have made a glowing error in that. I think I took it out of one of the electric Nikons_ which is a countdown camera, and I put it into a manual camera which is a countup. So I advanced the the film to the 37 count after clicking off two frames initially on loading. I advanced it to 37. I think should have only advanced to about eight or ten, somewhere along in there. Would you have them chew on that for a bit and see if they can sort out my problem? CC Okay; will do. PLT One additional bit of information. I had scratched out the 44, 45 original exposures, whatever it was, and put in a 37 and I think what I intended to mean that there was a 37 _ 37 exposures left, and on a countdown camera, of course, that's sufficient_ but it was put into a countup
camera,

CC Okay. We'll check it. CC CDR, Houston. CDR Roger, Hank. CC Jerry, you probably noticed that there were two S183 pads if - if - when you ripped them off there this morning. You should disregard the first one and the one you want to use is the one with the rev letters, Apple i and Bravo 2, 7422 is the message number, and what we've done is added in one more frame there on the S183 ops which should use up that carrousel 2-2, and you might want to change your details on your if no S019 part of your details there. Where it says 22:45 change that to 22:26, S183 ops. CDR Okay. Change 22:45 to 22:26. CC Right, Jerry. And the reason we added in that one extra exposure there, it takes part of your housekeeping up there to use up that carrousel. We'll be through with it. CDR Okay; no sweat, and I kind of had a hunch that's what the two 183 messages were for. CC Skylab, Houston, we're i minute from The next site is Hawaii at 06. And, Bill, we'll try to an answer for you there on the IR film, and the bright will be handing over to crimson team there. PLT Okay, Hank. Have a nice day. CDR By the way, Hank, would you ask Crip if he would try to get us a little briefing on TV-103 and TV_77, the EREP TV? IVd like to try to, if those are finished, I"d like to wash my hands of them. I think we owe them some more TV_77. I'd like to get it done. CC Roger. We copyp and I think we got TV-77 on the schedule here either tomorrow or the next day. I'm not forget which, Jer. CDR Okay.

Sometime prior to the EREP I'd like to get them up. I thought it might be convenient for you here between ATM and prior to getting started on PT. 14 in CDR minute. CC Okay. That'll be fine. CDR Okay, Dick. Go ahead. CC Okay, Jerry. First of all, let me explain why this happened. We had scheduled the VTS auto cal in the EREP C&D pad, and in some careful checking it turns out that the auto cal would have conflicted with one of the VTS sites. So we're going to delete the auto cal. I've got four deletions for you to doing EREP C&D. The first one is at the time of 23:16, S191 REF test. CDR Okay. CC And the next one's 24:36, VTS auto cal, delete that. The next one is four lines down where it says ready ON S191, 27:16, delete that. And also delete the REF 6 just below that. And that's all.

PAO Skylab Control, Greenwich mean time 14 hours and 31 minutes. Loss of signal through Carnarvon. Later this morning Pilot Bill Pogue will attempt to see if he can observe light flashes in an experiment similar to the one performed during the Apollo program. Flight surgeons have requested performance of this unscheduled medical experiment. Pogue will climb into the sleep restraint, put a blindfold over his eyes, and then don the communications carrier for recording his comments on the onboard tape recorder. Each time he notes an event a mark will be given and he will describe which eye or eyes he observed the flash and comment on the color, motion or any unusual characteristics. Of special interest is the period while Skylab passes through South Atlantic anomaly. Also of interest is the amount of dark adapting time required to begin before Pilot Pogue sees the flashes. This experiment is scheduled for a per - period Okay. I'ii call you back in about a

of about 70 minutes, beginning about Greenwich mean time 15:00. During Apollo astronauts had observed randomly occurring light flashes and streaks. Among the explanations offered for this is that they are caused by direct interaction of fast, heavy primary cosmic rays reacting with the retina of the eye. Other suggestions include the assumption that Cerenkov light from cosmic ray particles, or fluorescent of the lens causes this effect. This experiment had not been scheduled for Skylab; however, this review by the flight management team concurred in operation of the experiment today for Pilot Pogue, while Science Pilot Ed Gibson will be at the ATM during this period and Pi - Commander Gerald Carr will be performing his daily physical training exercises. Today's EREP pass, number 35 in the mission of Skylab IV, begins off the Oregon coast and will gather mapping data over Oregon as well as snow cover data in Nevada and Utah. As the spacecraft passes down it will be gathering geological features over northern Arizona, New Mexico, and will gather agriculture and forestry information through Texas _ Rio Grande Valley in the Cameron County area. As the spacecraft crosses the Gulf of Mexico the instruments will be gathering oceanographic data in the Gulf, and as the Skylab crosses the isthmus of Panama information will be gathered on the intertroplcal convergence zone, where the atmosphere of the northern and southern hemispheres meet. Geology will be - information will be gathered in Bolivia. Cartograph - cartography and mapping in Paraguay, and as Skylab passes over the central Amazon basin, information will be gathered for over overall understanding in control of natural resources of the Amazon basin area. As at the close of the EREP pass while Sk_lab is reorienting into solar inertial attitude, instruments will continue to gather data along the coast of Brazil, specifically outside of Rio de Janeiro from information gathered from mapping of ocean surface currents off the coast of Rio de Janeiro. Again, today's pass to use - scheduled to use 255 pound seconds of propellant TACS. 15,532 pound seconds of thruster attitude control gas remains aboard Skylab. 350 pound seconds were used during the two EREP passes yesterday.

Morning,

to go.

MCC Oh, pretty good here, Ed. Got a quickie here for you on the Sun. There's not too much going on as I'm sure you know. We saw a small bright mound at north 03 on the east limb that popped up at about 10:33 Zulu, lasted for only a ]ew minutes and then disappeared. There's been small surging going on there since but nothing very significant to get us excited to any great degree. The EUV on OSO VII indicates in the area where active region 14 will be coming around the ]imb in another day or so. It does not look very hot to us. We wonder what you see in XUV on the east limb as, say compared to the west limb? SPT Okay. Exactly where would that be around. 280? MCC Yes. It would be in the area of about oh, 265 up to maybe 280. It's not exactly clear where it's coming but as I recall it should be north, so maybe 270 to 280. SPT Okay. The reason I'm asking, there is some brightening over there. Let me describe it to you now. Some in around 260. There is a plate which is right on the limb and it's fairly intense because of the limb brightening, not anywhere near as intense as what we still have remaining on the west limb, however. At around 270 we have a fainter plate right on the limb, and then at around 280 there is a line of three points which are inclined at an angle of around, say, 30 degrees, 030. And our space may be a tenth of a solar radii apart. There's a chain of three of them. Perhaps a fourth one at the end, you count one very faint bright point, and that one's kind of surprising to see_ so there is - I imagine that is associated with activity and I have not been able to take time out to look at it in H-alpha. We still see active region 37 - I'm sorry; that is active region 37 in 281. Okay. Well, let's see. You were looking for 14. MCC Yes. 14 would be behind the ]imb. SPT Okay. No_ there's nothing there in higher altitudes except for what I see in 280s but there's nothing at high altitude. I see active region 37 at 28 and it should be - now wait. Let's - let's go back to - let's go back. We go back to 260 where I do see something. At 280, I only see that string of three bright points_ and they're not really close to right on the limb. One is the first one is very slightly inside. At 270, however, there is also a

SL-IV MC-2606/3 Time: 10:54 CDT 1/28/74

SPT - And 28 of course - apparently is that active region 37 but at 260 there is a brightening. MCC Okay Ed. Thank you. That sounds pretty much like what we've seen here. Active region 14 is really about our only hope here for any significant activity. It started acting up as it went across the west limb and we really don't expect it to do much but we are still hoping. Okay, on today's plan as a matter of fact at the next sunrise, which should be coming up in about 15-1/2 minutes, we're doing a JOP 7 test for NRL. They want to run that on sunrise tomorrow and the significant thing here is as you probably recall, they have already done the sunset portion of this. What they wanted to do was to look at the atmospheric extinction over a relatively clean portion of the world which they did. They would have perferred to do it over a dirty portion of the world again at sunset but unfortunately or fortunately maybe, we don't find much in the southern hemisphere right now so we're forced to do it at sunrise at Seattle_ day after this. In other words, tomorrow is about their last chance to come over a relatively industrialized city right at a sunup. So we wanted to get this test done today so we can get it in tomorrow, and look at the atmospheric extinction there for a comparison. SPT Okay, sorry for all the delays. I am spring loaded this time and then will be patiently waiting here for the next 15 minutes. MCC Okay good, and also then for tomorrow we have the JOP 13 scheduled as I mentioned. Presently we have a half an hour, I guess actually it's 25 minutes pad review t_me for you to do it. We're calling it a JOP 13 although you will do it entirely from the JOP 18 summary sheets. We'll use the building block 30 and all from JOP 18. The maneuver sequence that we're looking at right now we will do the regular 18D maneuver out which should center Gamma Valorem in the 52 field of view. In other words, behind the occulting disk. Then we give you a cookbook maneuver that should maneuver it out to zero and y minus ii0, so that you could see it. Then the idea is that you would perform whatever tweak maneuver _s necessary to put it at exactly X zero Y minus ii0 and then we give you an accurate maneuver based on what we know and the 55/52 offset to exactly center it in the 55 field of view. And then the coming home from there would be nominal. But once you get there then we would do two B30's. One in - in a grating setting that would allow detectors 6 and 7 to be looking down below the Lyman continuum and - let me think. ProbaSly some others also. And then another grating setting that puts the zero order image on detector 6 so that we can see just where it is in the field of view.

SPT Okay. I'd like to get the pad up as soon as possible so I can take a look at it and make sure I really understand what you said there in terms of implementation. MCC Yeah. As soon as we understand it here properly, we'll send it up to you. Actually what happens is whenever the mean time between changes gets up to an hour, we'll probably send it to you. SPT Okay. Very good. Send up a preliminary form that you llke and I'd like to at least be thinking about it. MCC Okay. It probably won't be too much longer. It is settling down. I've got some comments for you from S055 regarding the operations on crew day off. On the JOP 26 that you did on the west limb that on the loops in the structure out there, they're quite excited about that. One of the conclusions that they've come to looking at that is that there is a large amount of mass in the vicinity of a half a million degrees Kelvin. And much more so than had been anticipated and that's quite surprising. In the co _ SPT Where was it, down around ii0 - 120? MCC Just it's more a general conclusion out in the structure that's out off the limb that is seen in the and oxygen Vl. There is a - a large amount of it out there it's qufte bright. SPT Yes, I could see some oxygen Vl. And I didn't have time to really search around but I thought that at least giving them the mirror auto rasters would show it up for them. I had would have liked to have given them two mirror auto rasters in each location and also go to go to something which would have given them the Neon VII but time didn't permit. MCC Okay, and then also related to that, later on in the day when you went down to P-77, as far as they're concerned that's about the best prominence data that they have gotten where they got the MAR and the gasses for comparison, and they feel that's great. One of the initial looks indicates that the Lyman-alpha and the oxygen Vl are entirely different structures, which is interesting and once again here, this is a quick look. SPT Well I would - I would go along with that too because in looking at it in - in H-alpha, I found that that was not the point where the oxygen VI was necessarily the brightest. It was a little bit to one side of it. So it looked as it's showing though up in there there their data. was a difference and apparently

CC Okay. Like I said, first of all, what l_d like to describe to you first_ is our - is what we're trying to accomplish so you'll understand some of the deactivation effects. Primarily - primarily, after you undock and

SL-IV MC2608/2 Time: 11:22 CDT, 1/28/74

74:16:22

we plan to man the MOCR here for several shifts to get some engineering data on the SWS and that period of time is about a day and a half to two days. Most of our testing will not commence until after you've completed the shaping burn and are on the way home. Some examples of the kind of testing we're going to do during that period are as follows: We're going to operate the 8 - airlock module secondary coolant loop on Pump Alfa invertor i. Earlier in Skylab, that circuit breaker popped. We did reclose it but since then, we have not used that pump or that invertor. And so we're going to take a look at that performance. Next, we're going to operate the secondary refrigeration system to get somo system performance data. And we're also going to cycle the radiator bypass valve on both the secondary and the primary refrigeration system and take a look at those valves since we've been staying away from them since we had the earlier trouble in Skylab. Another thing we're going to do in refrigeration is we're - we plan to run both secondary and primary systems simultaneously and take a look at that performance. We intend to have an appropriate time - restart CMG-I and see what happens as it spins up. And in the computer area, we intend to switch from the secondary to the primary ATM DC. We're going to load the primary ATM DC 16K from the memory load unit on board which we never have done. And also, then we intend to load the primary computer 16K from the ground. We're going to vent the spacecraft to about a half a psi and then we're going to maneuver to what we think is a stable or a best estimate of what a stable gravity gradient attitude is. We're going to shut down the AM - and ATM transmitters and we're going to shut down the electrical power system, and then we're all going to go home. If you don't have any question about that, I'ii go on and describe - some of the effects of this on deactivation and also a couple of other tests that we intend to do prior to you leaving. SPT Dick, just one other thing. What about the future then? Do you ever intend to at periodic intervals, try to reestablish contact and monitor any systems? CC Negative, Ed. We do not. SPT Thank you. CC Moving on to the deactivation. Generally, let me say that the deactivation has remained even after - we have been doing a good deal of work on this end of mission plann±ng. But the deactivation still remains just about as you were _ that it was originally planned. We're going to do an EVA, a final one on day 80 and then on days 81 through 84, we're - you_ll be doing a bunch of deactivation and closeout activities. And of course, entry day, splash day is day 85.

You can expect some minor checklist updates to configure the SWS for this postmission testing that I've described to you. And one major improvement in the deactivation which will be some - generally, some checklist deletions, is we're goin_ to reduce by good margin, several hours of crew work on end of mission microbiological cleaning up. So that that's primarily going to come out of the checklist and we'll give you a little more pad. The plans for the - taking care of the circadian shift at the end of the mission, are essentially as follows: Entry minus 2 days, will be a 13-hour day and entry minus i day, will be a 10-hour day. This will provide nothing but 8-hour sleep periods for you which will end up with a shift of about 9 hours. END OF TAPE

CC - that I've described to you, and one major improvement in the deactivation which will be some generally some checklist deletions, is we're going reduce by a good margin several hours of crew work on end-of-mission microbiological cleaning up. So that's - that's primarily going to come out of the checklist and will give you a little more pad. Plans for the taking care of the cieadian shift at the end of the mission are essentially as follows: Entry minus 2 days will be a 13-hour day, and entry minus minus i day will be a lO-hour day. This will provide nothing but 8-hour sleep periods for you, which - and we'll end up with a shift of about 9 hours. You'll wake up on the entry day at a time of 02:00 Zulu for 15:15 Zulu splash on that day. The testing that we intend to accomplish while you're still there and after EVA-4 is essentially as follows: We intend to test CBRMs - well first of all, let me tell you what we're interested in. On the CBRMs, as you know, we've been worried a little bit about letting them go into auto disconnect because we're afraid we might not could bring the CBRMs back on the line, and in the PCG area we_ve been trying to keep them no lower than about a 33-volt level because we're afraid that might degrade our battery capacity. What we intend to do is test CBRMs i0 and 18 down to auto disconnect and the only participation we're going to be asking of you is to provide us the time of the battery talkback. Now we will give you an estimate at that time so it's not going to take a great deal of time with you Just looking at the panel, but we do need you to help us there. Also, PCG number 6, we plan to test it down to the 30-volt level, rather than the 33-vo!t level, and there we're going to ask you to adjust the initial test load and also note the time at the 33-volt level for us. We will not require you to continuously monitor these tests. Assuming at this point that we have had no failure of either CBRM or PCG, we intend to test the remaining CBRMs to auto disconnect. We - we'll probably do this at night. We'll hot require any effort on your part. If any failure does occur at this point we're going to delay all subsequent electrical power systems testing until after the shaping burn. Just to make you feel warm about this, your power margin in SI's about 1200 watts and we could stand to lose about five CBRMs or about three PCGs. Either about five CBRMs or about three PCGs and st_ll be good shape for there, so we don't think there's any hazard involved in this. Couple of other things that we are going to do while you're still there is that we're going to operate the ATM thermal control system, the secondary system, which we've never used Skylab, to take and then we're going a look at the restart to restart the primary characteristics. In system conclusion,

Next acquisition through Carnarvon tracking station in 40 minutes and 50 seconds. A rather thorough review by CAP COMM Dick Truly with postsplash activities, activities associated with the flight controllers and the unmanned Skylab space station. CAP COMM Truly going over the various tests that will be performed. The vehicle will be depressnrized to about 0.5 psi after undocking. One of the major items the ground will be testing is attempt to spin up the control moment gyro number 1 which went off line immediately after the first EVA early in the mission. One of the interesting items discussed was the loading of a revisit bag, Skylab's own little time capsule into which 30 separate items will be placed and tied in a plenum bag and mounted on the ATM foot restraint for possible retrieval By any future crews which may visit the orbiting Skylab. Items scheduled to be loaded in this revisit bag include nine separate items of food, of bread pudding and beverages associated unused film canisters, a roll of teleprinter paper, a workshop fan, some of the filters from the SIg0A, which will be stacked neatly in the bag, various types of material from within the spacecraft including duret (?)'several electrical cables, as well as flight data file samples, including book cover, flight pages, and star charts, surgical gloves, the fire sensor control panel, and several other items. These - a list of these items will be passed up to the crew in the nightly teleprinter message probably tonight. CAP COMM Truly advising the crew there are no plans for monitor after the 40 hours from the ground, there are no plans to recontact the spacecraft. He again went over the last final days of the mission starting with mission day 80_ going over the checkout list from mission day 81 to 84, giving the times the crew - giving the times to the crew that t_ey are scheduled to wakeup their last day in orbit.

Hello at Carnarvon for 7 minutes. CDR How's the weather look, Dick? CC Well, I'll tell you. I was just getting ready to call you and give you a briefing on it. I'll Just do that now if it's okay. CC Turns out that there's a weather condition that's out around the Pacific coast as you cross that's going to cause a good deal of moisture and it's going to be pretty heavy cloud cover out there. It is going to break to - it's got about 8- to i0/i0 as you cross the coast and it'll that'll clear up a little bit to 4- to 7/10 over Reno and we think there's a real good chance of getting the VTS site 125 at Sow Creek. Then as you come down over Utah, it's goin_ to get cloudy again, back to 8- to I0/i0. Begin to clear up as you come over about Gallup, New Mexico and then it'll get very clear after that - 0- to 3/10 from there on, oh, down around Brownsville. The - there's a VTS - there's a VTS special site number I0 at Carlsbad. They do have a potential fog problem out there down in the valley but we think that site should also be obtainable by you. And then, as you get around the coast down at Brownsville, it's going to get cloudy again, 7- to i0/i0 coverage down there. After you get out into the Gulf, unfortunately, from there almost until the cross the exiting the South American coast, it's going to be generally heavy broken to overcast. There are some holes in and out down there. But in general, it's going to be a pretty cloudy trip. CDR Roger. CC Okay. the PLT valley?

But in the event that we do get one or more gimbals on the stop and you're loosing altitude, the procedure is to enter zero fine maneuver with a 6-minute CAL

and it's not necessary to hit STANDBY. What you guys did yesterday was real good and Bill, particularly your - your continuing to take data through all that business helped us and we think we're going to be able to recover some of that. On this attitude control, if you would like to, permanent general message number 4 Delta, the last part of that message talks about gimbal problem recovery procedure, and that is the procedure that we're recommending. The zero fine maneuver and the 6-minute CAL. CDR Roger. Understand, Dick. CC Okay. CC Skylab, Houston. We're a minute from LOS.

Next acquisition through Guam tracking station in 5 minutes and 35 seconds. Flight surgeons here at the Mission Control Center indicate that if the mission goes the 84 days, their eating habits, by the time the crew leaves, there'll be very little left aboard Skylab for any potential future visitors, with the exception of the survival food which was taken up on Skylab IV in the event that a rescue mission was necessary. These are high caloric food candy-like bars. There were 25 pounds of those. However, the standard Skylab food - the only items left, are in the tuna fish, shrimp cocktail, green beans and asparagus. That those be 15 each of those left according to tabulations here, if the crew continues to be _ to eat all of the food items they have on their remaining menus. The crew has been eating on the average of 3000 or more calories per day, and it's reflected in their present weights as of yesterday.

I missed that this morning when we were talking with Bill Lenoir. CC Okay, Ed. Go ahead. We're listening. SPT Okay. A relatively small change, perhaps the largest one is at 060. We see a streamer which is exceptionally well defined now, not anywhere near as bright as the one over at 275 but still the brightest one on the east limb.

CC Skylab, Houston Tananarive for 7 minutes. CDR Roger, Dick, got a question for I guess the articulated mirror people. CC Okay, Jerry they're listening go ahead. CDR On about two occasions now, I've indicated that if they would just tell us where the discone antenna should be located in the field of view when you got 00 and rotation and TILT_ that we can give them a real accurate location of where the 00 position is and we could give them TILT and rota - rotation readings for that. It seems to me this would be a real great way that's not time critical to pretty well assure yourself that you're going to be pointed at the right star field because you can open the SAL and look in - extend the mirror and look at the antenna before it gets too dark and kind of benchmark or calibrate yourself. And so far that data has not Is it because it's impossible to get or CC Stand by and let me Jer. been forthcoming. what's the deal? get you an answer,

CC CDR, Houston, I guess the answer is we believe and and our problem, I guess is that we haventt gotten this back up to you is that we don't have any say in the location in the normal known location and the stability that location of the discone antenna. We believe that they move around and wobble a good bit and this is affected by each maneuver that we do and in general we do think that it's when what that have a poor showing to get real accurate readings, particularly we're able to get the reference stars. So I guess we should have done is just told you that at least that was our opinion several days ago and then you wouldn't been expecting it, over. CDR Yeah, that would have been a good idea, because I've been harping on that for weeks now and haventt gotten any feedback on it. CC Sorry about that.

CC Skylab, Houston Jerry rather than repeat the conversation we've been having about overage, scheduled meals and jam and so forth, the simple answer is that when itts scheduled in your menu you can eat the jam that appears in your overage. Also we're about a minute or so from LOS_ Hawaii comes up at 21:23 and we plan on dumping the data/volce recorder there. I do have one other input that you might be interested in.

During today, we also noticed that condition - sometimes when that reeorder_s in record_ we have verified that the recorderts working okay, however, and it's strictly a problem with the TAPE MOTION sensor.

CC Skylab, Houston. We're through Madrid 8-1/2 minutes, and we'd like to dump the recorder here. CDR Rog, Hank. You've got it. PLT Check (?) do you need that bumper in that breaker in the dump? CC Stand by i. CC No, we dontt need that in, Bill. CDR Okay. It's in, Hank. CC Would you care to hear a little news this morning, or you want to wait a little while? CDR No, Hank. Go ahead. That'll be fine. CC Well, we_ll lead off here with a few more words on Kohoutek. A leading comet expert says the comet Kohoutek still could be the comet of the century to scientists. "Kohoutek is a better than average comet," Dr. Marsden said. "But there is just an awful lot we don't know about these things. We never had a case like this of a comet which came in so close to the Sun being discovered so far out in space as this one_ and this presented many interesting possibilities about what it could do," he said. "But because it was discovered so early, scientists could prepare, and speaking as an astronomer, I am delighted at the scientific observations made. No comet has been studied as extensively as this one_ and what is learned should be incredible," Dr. Marsden said. He said comets are extremely unpredictable objects which can suddenly grow brigkter or dimmer_ burn out completely, or even split into two or more other comets. "We feel that there may be a volatile substance on the outside of the comet head which is lost on the first pass, leaving just water, ice and other material which doesn't vaporise as easily." It is the vapor reflecting light that is seen in the sky, and Kohoutek could have lost its vaporizing substance passing the sun. Many experts speculate that comets originate somewhere beyond Pluto's orbit in a ring of comet-like snowballs and occasionally one is nudged out of place and falls toward the sun. The prevailing theory is that these snowballs are composed of frozen water, ammonia and methane, along with dust particles and other space debris. The surging Mississippi River, flooding thousands of acres of lowlands in West Tennessee, has forced about 500 people to flee their homes. Authorities said the river had spilled over about 30,000 acres of unprotected farmland from Hickman, Kentucky, near the Tennessee-Kentucky border southward to about 40 miles north of Memphis. The hardest hit counties in West Tennessee were Dyer and Lauderdale counties, where flood water covered about 22,500 acres. The river at Dyersburg in Dyer County was cresting Monday at more than 6 feet above the 32_foot flood stage. A spokesman for the National Weather Service said the river would-crest at Memphis on Sunday at 36.1 feet, which is 2.1 feet above flood stage at the city. Problems with Mariner i0 from Pasadena JPL.

say about 20 percent of Mariner X's nitrogen gas supply was lost Monday, just eight days before a scheduled flyby of Venus, scientists reported. Their scientists were not immediately certain whether the gas loss would have any effect on the mission. A computer alarm alerted engineers at laboratory Monday to a sudden decrease in attitude control gas pressure ahosrd the spacecraft, a spokesman said. Proper pressure was restored by turning off the gyros which had been controlling the craft's attitude for the last i0 days. Mariner X, launched November 3, 1973, is scheduled to fly by Venus on Feburary 5 and Mercury on March 29. And here's a little one from Per - Orlando, Florida. Little did Carlton Black realize that spitting watermelon seeds at his sister might someday win him a trip to Las Vegas. Black, a Jacksonville auto parts salesman, captured the Florida melon spitting championship Sunday. "I didn't get too dry a pucker," he explained after spitting a seed 55 feet to beat all challengers, including Florida Secretary of State, Richard Stone. Black, 30, said he gained his skill sitting around the back yard, eatln_ watermelon and spitting the seeds at his sister. He won a trip to Las Vegas for the National spit-off. From Miami: Soviet Communist party leader Leonid Brezhnev gets his first chance to address the Cuban nation today at a massive outdoor rally in Havana. Brezhnev, who received a tumultous greeting on his arrival in the Cuban capital on Monday, is expected to express his country's solidarity with the Cuban regime of Prime Minister Fidel Castro at ceremonies in the Plazs de la Revo -Revolucion. The 67-year-old Brezhnev is expected to spend much of the week-long visit in meetings witk Castro. There has been no official word on the subjects to be discussed. From Houston: When the Skylab III astronauts depart their orbiting home next week, they'll leave behind a time capsule that may be retruved - retruved, huh retrieved by future spacemen. Mission Control radioed the astronauts a list of 30 items, ranging from food and clothing to electrical devices to be placed in a bag and left in a convenient spot inside the laboratory. Carr, Pogue and Gibson today were in their 75th day of the 84-day mission, heading for a Fehruary 8 splashdown. They are the third and final crew to inhabit the 85_ton space station. Washington: The Navy plans to argue that the energy crisis makes it necessary to have a bigger fleet. Senior Adam Admirals will tell congressional committees in coming months that naval power is vital in keeping open the tanker routes from oil producing regions. In the last five years, the fleet has shru_nk from 976 ships to 511 older as older vessels were retired. Also Washington: The fate of emergency energy legislation appears in doubt in the Senate.

Muhammad All showed up in glistening black and white terry cloth and Joe Frazier swathed himself in white crushed velvetp but the fighters looked like paupers Monday night compared with some of the fans. A noted designer reportedly made All an $ii,000 rhinestone-studded cape to wear to the ring, but he did not use it. Earlier in the week, he had chided Frazler for flaunting minks while most of the world was starving. It was the night of the peacock at Madison Square Garden. In furs and featkers, glistening platform shoes and blinding diamonds came to the Soul people, strutting majestically into the smoky_ smelly arena to witness the most primitive of man_s sports. Ringside seats went for as much as one thousand dollars from scalpers. 20,400 fans packed the Garden to watch All and Frazier go 12 rounds. The final score was 7 for All, 4 for Frazler and 1 even. Both fighters were cut up pretty bad. "I'd love to give Joe another chance. He deserves everything he can get," Muhammed Ali said on a possible rematch with Joe Frazler. Ali won a unanimous 12_round decision on the heavyweight match. It is estimated the fight was witnessed by a billion people. Thatts hard to believe. And that's about it.

The morning news read up to the crew by CAP COMM Hank Hartsfield as the crew was in their postsleep activities, more than likely having a cup of coffee aboard their space station. Today, mission day 75, a schedule filled with observations of the Sun, medical experiments, and another Earth survey pass make up the bulk of Skylab IV activities for January 29. Major medical experiment today is the M092/M093 lower body negative pressure and vectorcardiogram runs. Today's test is to begin approximately at 2:20 p.m. central daylight time with Science Pilot Ed Gibson as the subject and Commander Gerald Carr as the observer. The M092 experiment is designed to establish a time course of cardiovascular deconditionlng changes caused by zero g and to make comparisons with baseline studies here on the ground as long as - prior to the mission. M093 measures electrocardiograph potentials during zero g to obtain precise measurements of change. Three periods of solar observations are on today's Flight Plan with Science Pilot Gihson hearing the hulk of the tasks. Gibson will perform an ATM JOP 13 experiment later this morning - later in the evening. Joint Observation Program, acronym JOPs are designed around specific problems in solar physics. The JOPs are carried out by executing a succession of fundamental observing sequences also known as building blocks. Each buildln_ block provides a specific type of observation. JOP 13 is an observation of night sky objects. The Earth resources pass along groundtrack 34 is number 36 in the mission of Skylab IV. The space station will take data over Oregon, Sante Fe, New Mexico, Lubbock, Texas_ and Central and South America. The run starts at 12:25 central daylight time and continues through 12:58 p.m. central dayl_ght time. Kousekeeping, personal hygiene, physical training and a variety of handheld photo targets of opportunity round out the busy schedule for the Skylab IV crew. By bedtime approximately 2821/2 hours, will have been devoted to science-gathering experiments. Next acquisition through Tananarive in 6 minutes 45 seconds. At Greenwich mean time ii hours 31 minutes, this is Skyla5 Control. PAO Skylab Control, Greenwich mean time ii hours 37 minutes.

Where you start off we've got another large spot a good deal larger than the other. The on the WLC. The first one was around 1 centimeter by a half centimeter _ oval shaped. And about 3.3 centimeters from the center. This one is 2_i/2 centimeters hy 1 centimeter and 4.3 centimeters from the center. The other one was at the original one was at around i0 o'clock and this one is about 10:30. It behaves in the same way, that is, it's exceptionally bright and the scan that goes across and then for all those lines, is darker on either side. So the AGC is doing its Job and brings down the level of light on the remainder of the total display, to such a level that with max contrast and max brightness I can only see the inside of the corona. If I turn the contrast down to 4_i/2, and the brightness up to 9, I can still make out the outline of the corona out to the edge of the displayp although with nowhere near the clarity that we could before. If we're planning on looking for a very dim feature as we may be this afternoon, with the JOP 13, now I suspect that our chances are substantially reduced, if not down to nil, with this development.

PAO Skylab Control, Greenwich mean time 13 hours 12 minutes. Loss of signal through Ascension. Next acquisition in 21 - 27 minutes will be Carnarvon. Discussion with Science Pilot Gibson concerning the TV monitor on board. Apparently another spot on the monitor, which he indicated would reduce the chances of his being able to see the star which the ATM will be aimed at later tonight. The star is the Gamma Velorum, which is located in the region of the Gum nebula_ where scientists report a super nova has ionized much of the interstellar hydrogen, thus making observation at wavelengths below the hydrogen absorbing - absorption edge of 912 angstroms a possibility. Later today at Greenwich mean time 24:00, the crew will implement JOP 13, Joint observation 13 with the ATM to aim it at this star, Gamma Vel - Gamma Velorum. No star has heretofore been observed to emit any Ev - EUV region below 912 angstroms. Detection of radiation in the region 3- to 500 angstroms would be of great significance to astronomy_ scientist here at the Mission Control Center say, not only because it would change our ideas about the interstellar mediums but also because it would open up an entire new window of the spectrum to astonomical research. About I month ago, scientists observed intense emission from Gamma Velorum below the Lyman limit by an amount greatly exceeding even great optimistic predictions. That the source was, indeed, Gamma Velorum is concluslve_ there remains a slight possibility that some of the observed emission was contaminated by scattered light from wavelengths longer than 912 angstroms. Thus a confirmation by an independent instrument, in this case, the ATM instruments is badly needed. The scattered light by the S055 instrument is known to be negligible and this is the instrument primarily to be used in the ATM JOP 13, tonight. Also_ the count rate expected given the fluxes reported by the earlier detection is high enough to permit detection by the S055 instrument. Thus this instrument could provide the necessary confirmation. If the observation is made and it is successful, a new program to make observations of this star and perhaps other stars of 1912 (sic) angstroms can be this observation expected. is crucial In snmmary_ because it scientists will verify here say, or refute that

an exceedingly important new affect. If verified, the effect will have important consequences for understanding of the intersteller medium and it would undoubtedly influence programming for future astronomy missions. This is the first time that JOP 13 has been programmed for this mission. The EREP pass scheduled for _ to begin at Greenwich mean time 17:35, today _ 17:25 today will hopefully capture the elusive HATS _ test site _ the Houston area test site. The last t_me MATS was availahle to the EREP instruments, it was the

time that the SI90A filters were inadvertently left off of the cameras. So today's pass along groundtrack 34 should complete the information for the scienctists interested in the Houston area test site. The instruments will begin gathering data off of the North Pacific and the data take ends in South America as the spacecraft passes over South America. 28 sites are in the groundtrack today, 4 mandatory and 24 desired candidate sites, principal of one of which, of course, is the Houston area test site.

So

SPT Okay. XUV monitor, active region 34 is there but it's very dim. Active region 36, I have a beck of a tough time finding out where that is. It's barely barely able to see a brightening in the region in which it's called out. We don't have any real major coronal holes on the disk except for north and south. We have one at - which is just a very faint - maybe perhaps it looks more like a very wide diffuse filament channel at about east/west maybe, 4/10 of a solar radii, to the north as it goes to the east. 180, extending slightly curving I'm sorry, to the excuse me, I'ii Give me another

west. Over on the west limb, east limb, get the two straight one of these days. 85 days at it. CC No such luck. SPT Active region 37

stands

out.

There

is

some brightening. I assume since they say active region 37 is at 0.9, that the brightening which is right on the limb now at about 270, may be from 265 to 275, that that is not their active region 37. So that must be something new coming around the corner. Right adjacent to active region 37, there are two other brightenlngs in XUV which look to me the same magnitude and they run they're seperated by a distance of around 0.i solar radii and run in a straight line from the active region 37 to the west - northwest. They incline maybe around maybe 20 degrees to the equator. like to go on over and take a look at that with 55 if I get the chance today, because all three of them look to be about the same intensity and they're lined up - perfect straight llne up. Seeing this yesterday also. Looking at the white light coronagraph, a picture which I was able to get out of _t_ one best you could see at 060, which defined one_ the is by looks essentially three streamer structures, far the brightest - I should say the like a helmet streamer at the base. to the a very around edge of the display. sharp faint one, very 3 solar radii.

over at 275, is that fairly wide diffused one, radial direction which has not changed appreciably from yesterday. Using an overlay which I've - another one which I've just made up which covers up that spot, I'm able to get some reasonable pictures out of it. And it does help my eye. It does help so that your eye can become a little better dark adapted and see things better on the scope. But I have to do it with a contrast of 4 in a brightness of 7. And that cuts down my ability to resolve very faint features. So I think we can give it a go today but we sure don't have the capability we did before. CC Okay. Appreciate that rundown, Ed and we're giving it a GO here. We're going to have a backup maneuver Just in case you can't see it, you know, to go ahead and place it and try it anyhow. Incidentally, that is a new active region coming around the - coming around the limb, the one you referred to. And also regarding the 56 thing you saw a while ago when it was back to filter I and the OPERATE light stayed on, St was just a normal 56 hangup. It just happened to occur right before the last frame advance at the end of the picture taking cycle. So that was the reason it didn't go ahead and go back to to READY. SPT Okay. So when the frame that does not advance, the filter moves forward but the not frame, so you really have a double exposure then on one piece of these frames. Is that correct? All along here, I've been hoping that when they get a hangup like that, that what they're really getting is a long exposure in one of their filters. Maybe that's not true however. CC Think it kind of depends on - on where the thing hangs up, but in this case, you you did get one. I'm going to go LOS here in about 15 seconds.

SPT Morning, Bill. What have you got to say? MCC Okay. I don't have too much to say here today. Listened to your comments earlier about not being able to find active region 36. We have already dropped it from our llst and we're not carrying it any more as an active region. On the west limb activity that you talked we're thinking that there's a new active region coming Just south of the equator around the limb there, and the little brightening that is north is probably from the return of active region 14, neither of which look terribly exciting right now. SPT I caught you, Bill. I think you mean the east equator - the east limb. MCC Yes. That's right. I'm just like you. Another 85 days and I'd probably wouldn't learn it then either, to tell you the truth. SPT Okay. There is a fair amount of brightening over there. It looks relatively dim. MCC Yes, but with the limb brightening that's anticipated and everything we don't look for much to be coming around there, although we certainly can hope. Some thoughts on today's plan. You're coming up, as you no doubt know, on the JOP 7 that you took a look at yesterday and I assume that the way the pad is written it's fairly clear. If you have any questions on that I can answer them now. SPT No. It's very clear the way it's written. MCC Okay. And one other thing; later in the day at the last orbit that Jerry has, beginning at 22:04 or thereaboutsp 22:05, if you haven't picked it up we asked him in his observing time, we suggest shopping list 26-B, that's spectra for 55, on an emerging flux region. I point that out to you now so that you might start looking ahead and thinking emerging flux region. We'll be looking on the ground and if we see anything noteworthy we'll certainly let you know. But you might spend some time if you have it just to look around and see if anything looks likely. SPT Okay. I'll try to do that. MCC Okay. And 2 days from now - 2 days from now is your next crew day off. Right now we're not planning anything special as far as ATM goes. If you've got any inputs or requests for us make them and we'll be glad to see what we can do about it. SPT Bill, I'll probably be taking a couple orbits that day, but not anywhere near what we've had before. I think we've got to start thinking command module, and I'm going to devote a little time to that.

MCC Fine. That sounds great with us, and also, for planning for tomorrow if you have any specific projects or programs, like EVA or something like that, that you'd like to recommend to us, I'ii take them into the planning conference this afternoon and we'll see what we can do about them tomorrow, although we do not have very much time scheduled. SPT The only I noticed that's a little out of the ordinary is these three bright regions that are coming around the corner over there on the east limb. I think it'd be kind of interesting to look at. What I had planned to do was to try to get all in the 55 mirror auto raster if possible. I'm not sure I can fit them all in. And give them some truncated mirror auto rasters and see how they - if there are any changes, and if so whether they're related to one another in the three brightenings. Looks just like three active regions, at least certainly what we've been calling active regions lately. MCC Okay, fine. I'ii mention that this afternoon then. That's all I had. Unless you've got something else to talk about we're done, and we've got about 5-i/2 minutes left. SPT No t I don't have anything else to bring up. I'm wondering how their super-RASTER came out.

PLT No r I don't have anything else to bring up. I'm wondering how their super-RASTER came out. We we added some on the side, trying to get to a hyper-RASTER with the three more on each side so that they could pick up whatever activity there might be on the limb. I'm not sure whether We had a sufficient number of mirror auto rasters in each location, Bill to to bring out what was there. But we gave it a go. MCC Okay, Ed. It's going to take a while to obviously look at the data. But at least mechanically in what we got, looks like it was a success as far as the super-RASTER goes, including the additions you gave us. And I've got some comments here from the backroom on 55. They're looking at those three bright regionssounds like an excellent idea. SPT Okay. Very good. If we get some time today, we'll do that. You may want to - if - as long as you're not calling them active regions, they must be associated with activity because they're a little bit largefor bright points. Just what program do you want to run on them, I'm not sure other than spectra plus 55 mirror auto rasters. You may want to (garble) stuck for things to look at tomorrow. You may want to consider that. MCC Okay. I think we'll certainly talk about that at the planning this afternoon; and other than that, then I guess 1'11 be talking with you in the morning. SPT Thanks very much, Bill. So long. CC Ed, one item I might fill in there. A while ago, we were talking about 56. It - the mode of that failure on the hangup is such that you always end up with a double exposure on one frame. The thing always goes ahead and when it hangs up, it'll - the filter will go ahead and change over and the frame will stay there. Consequently when you restart the next one, you are going to ge= a double. SPT Okay. Thank you, Bob. That's unfortunate. This past - (garble) sunset, I was able to pick up six aurora photographs in the south. It was reasonable activity. It's not anywhere near what we saw up in the north about 6 weeks ago however.

During the period when Skylab is out of the solar inertial attitude, power will be supplied by the ATM and airlock module batteries. Estimated power usage will be 7.2 amphours from the ATM battery source and 19.4 amp-hours from the airlock module battery source. This is well within the limits of the system. During today's JOP 13 exercise, an attempt will be made to confirm emissions in the EUV, extreme ultraviolet region below 912 angstroms. The data take will last for 40 minutes. Recently emissions of this nature were observed by the Mariner Venus/Mercury planetary spacecraft. The dectection of radiation in the region, 300 to 500 below 912 angstroms, would be of great significance to astronomy. It would open up an entire new window of the spectrum to astronomical research. No star heretofore has been observed to emit radiation at these levels. Acquisition in ll minutes and 35 seconds through Goldstone. At Greenwich mean time 17 hours 16 minutes, this is Skylab Control.

Loss of signal through MILA tracking station as Skylab continues its EREP pass for today, number 36 in the mission of Skylab IV. All seemed to be going well during the EREP pass except when the spacecraft crossed over the Gulf of Mexico, the crew reported malfunction lights on the SI90A instrument, the multispectral camera which has six separate cameras as a unit. After troubleshooting, switching it on and off, Commander Carr reported that it was "deader than a doornail." First malfunction of the SI90A cameras occurred during the eighth EREP pass back on December 4. However, this problem was remedied and during yesterday's pass, malfunction lights came on during the EREP pass. The crew was advised to turn the cameras off, let them cool down and try to reactivate them before the end of the pass which is suppose to end as the spacecraft crosses over the coast of South America. The S190 cameras were to be on during the entire pass starting over the western north Pacific, over the United States, down through the Gulf of Mexico, Central America and throughout the entire pass through South America. Next acquisition will be in 6 minutes through Vanguard at which time the spacecraft should be back maneuvering to the solar inertial mode.

We've got you through Goldstone for 12 minutes. We'll also be doing a data/voice recorder dump here. And Skylab, Houston, is it - would it be possible to get somebody to go up and adjust the pots or reg again please? PLT Be right with you, Crip. CC Okay. All we want to do is go back to the original position. CC PLT, Houston. Is this a convenient place to talk, Bill, or are you tied up that right now? PLT Go ahead. CC Okay. Couple of items. First, I'd like if you could, you've got a housekeeping period around, 20:40. So I'd like you to do is give us an M509 F5A to add a little 02 to the workshop at that time. And we're going to secure it about an hour later and I'ii I'ii get to Jerry, or some somebody later to do that. Okay, also another question, when you looked out the window the o - to check the 193 antenna for us, can you give us any words about how it was moving? Did In other words, did it look normal, or did you look at it that long? PLT I looked at it two or three times there and it was swinging back and forth, you know, that is to say, in the only mode it can move. And it was moving smoothly and I didn't notice anything out the wrods. CC Okay; very good. Appreciate that info. PLT What was the time again on that 509 Foxtrot 5 Alfa? CC At 20:40. After your 63 ops. PLT Roger. CDR Crip, on the EREP tape there's 6 centimeters remaining. And on the S190, we powered down the panel then powered the whole thing back up again, went into malfunction procedures for 191 went in symptom 2, and bumped us immediately into symptom 6. We worked down the line and finally ended up with a circuitry failure. The - the drive motors were quite cool. There was no indication that any of them had been warm, and the - the shutter mechanisms rotate freely with no friction problems at all. So it looks llke we're just not getting the power there.

One other item, can you tell us whether you think that the 193 altimeter ever locked up? PLT You were cut clipped off short there, Bob. Say again? CC Okay. I was asking Jer if he could tell or if he thought that the altimeter ever locked up during the pass? CDR During the last part of t_e pass, negative. The indication was moving from 96 to about 84. Every 5 seconds it would drop from 96 down to 84 and then come right back up again, and it wasn't steady at all. Whereas the first part of the pass it went up to 96 and stayed there.

EREP officer indicates that the troubleshooting procedure for the $190A will be worked out in - in the trainer in Building 5 before procedures are passed to the crew, in order to remove the magazines from the SI90A without damaging the film. The last frames of film on the camera, before the problem developed during the EREP pass, was of the Houston area test site, and the ground is concerned about salvaging those last few frames on that roll that were exposed. Today's EREP pass is 91 in the mission of Skylab IV - 91 in the missions of Skylab, the 36th for this mission. 44 were accomplished during Skylab III, ii during Skylab II, 36 so far in this mission for a grand total of 91, which is more than 50 percent more than orginally programed for Skylab prior to the extension of the Skylab IV mission. Original plans called for 15 EREP passes in the first mission, 30 in the second Skylab manned mission, and 15 for the last mission. Indications on the ground here, telemetry shows that only seven mibs were used during the maneuvers in and out of the EREP attitude, for a total of 35 pound-seconds, well within the anticipated 25 which G&C predicted earlier.

CC Yes, sir. CC Also, while I've got you here. You got any comments regarding the handheld messages, the way we've done it yesterday and today? CDR No. We dontt have any objection to that that procedure at all. I think the only thing that we regret that we just very seldom get a chance to do anything about them. I took that list yesterday and marked everyone of them with whether or not I'd had an opportunity to do it or if I couldn't, why. And of that whole list, live only got an opportunity to go for two of them. And I just flat missed two others because I was just kind of busy eating or something like that, you know, no good excuse. And all the rest I was either at the ATM or working some assigned task and just couldn't get to the window. CC Okay. Well_ we appreciate that. But you guys have had a fantastic track record going as far as those handhelds are concerned. Everybody here is well pleased with it. So, the only thing I wanted to find out was whether the system we had now with the message was workable or not. And I guess from you comment here, it is. Okay. I've got it.

Gotta - Gotta split our science up in all different ways though. One other comment here, maybe you could give it some thought. We're - As you recall, back on your last EVA, we had a requirement to try to measure the temperature of the S020 can while it was still outside and that didnlt work out too spiffy. We would like you, if you could, to give us some ideas to - maybe if we did something before you went out, you know, either taping the thing on the can or something like that, something simple, it might be possible. They - they've got a requirement they'd like to measure it so they could help them out developing their film after we get back. But if it's going to be a big deal like like it was last time, we don_t even try. But if you could give us some words and your opinion on it later, we would appreciate it. CDR What kind of temperatures are they expecting? CC Well, I guess the last time they - the temperature reading that you ended up giving them was a little bit higher than what they'd anticipated. I'm afraid I don't have that - that temperature right here offhand. CDR Well, you know, we've got some of those stickon temperature sensors that we_ve got on the rate gyros. We got a few extra of those left, and we could stick - possibly stick one on. And I think the method we used the last time was probably pretty good. Ed_s got a comment or two on that. It's just a matter of taking the time to do it. Our problem was, when you were kind of in a rush rush mode there at the end to get in_ and we really didn't get to do that thermometer temperature measurement the right way. SPT Yeah, Crip. That seems like a perfectly doable thing. And the problem we got into last time is we were working another experiment_ when sunset came around we had to rusk and try to get a measurement for them. I don't think it's a hard thing to do at all. If you want to schedule one the next time, it's no problem. CC Okay. We may do that. We'll also take Jer's recommendation under consideration of whether those sticky crystals will work or not. And we'll try to have a an answer to your questions regarding scheduling on 131 when we get to Vanguard. We're about 30 seconds from LOS and Vanguard is our next station contact at 21:08.

CC And also, as you may have recalled from our comet discussions there always comes the question of what do you do when you get down to the tweak maneuvers and you can't find the target visually? So let's look back at this step 14 again. As you go through it, the the first set of 000 X and plus ll0 Y is a maneuver to put your target at the second postion, that is at 000 X and minus ii0 Y. And at this point you should be able to see it. If you can't, why_ we've got other procedure to go through here. If you look down at the one we just corrected, the final maneuver is a manever of plus 000 X and minus 105 Y, which is suppose to put the target back underneath the occulting disk near the center, or at the center of the S055 raster, which is some 300ths, decimal of a degree off from the centerline of the S052 instruments. If Gamma Valorum is not visible after doing that first maneuver, you can attempt some small maneuvers in order to make the sightings or in order to pick it up visually. And we'd like you to spend no more than 5 minutes on this. If after 5 minutes, you're unsuccessful, reselect SI mode, this will zero your attitude maneuvers and drive you back where if everything has been correct, Gamma Valorum will be centered. Then perform a fine maneuver of 000 X plus 003 Y and 000 Z to obtain the theoretical 300ths of degree offset to 52 to 55 bias. You want me to repeat that last maneuver again. SPT Plus 3 in Y, I got it. CC Roger_ that takes care of our commentary. SPT Roger. CC Okay, and also for your information, we expect to see a lot of TACS used on this maneuver around this revolution. Especially concerned with the reset and also coming out of the JOP 18, JOP 13 attitude here. SPT Roger.

The FBI and the deparment periodically disclose the number of wiretaps in operation, but normally make public no other details unless forced to do so in court or under pressure from Congress. Also Washington: CIA director William E. Colby said Tuesday night that the CIA can find only one tape recording bearing on the Watergate affair and that it has destroyed all its other tapes from that period. In a telephone interview, Colby said, "We had periodic destruction of our tapes." CBS News, meanwh±le, reported that the CIA made the recordings secretly and that some of them may have included conversations with the President. CBS said the tapes apparently were being sought to throw light on the CIA's role in the break-in at the office of Ellsberg's psychiatrist and other Watergaterelated matters. Los Angeles: A subpoena ordering President N_xon to testify personally in the Ellsberg burglary case is awaiting the s±gnature of a California state judge following his ruling that the President is a material witness. The unprecedented subpoena was drafted and delivered to Superior Court Judge Gordon Ringer late Tuesday by attorneys for John D. Ehrlichman who requested Nixon's appearance. Washinton: Controversy over oil industry profits appears to have k_lled the emergency energy bill that Congress wrestled with _or 2 months. "It's all in a shambles now," Senate Interior Committee Chairman Henry M. Jackson, Democrat, Washington, sa_d, House Commerce Committee Chairman Harley O. Staggers, Democrat from West Virgina, agreed that the Senate vote probably would kill the bill. Washington: President Nixon addresses Congress and the Nation Wednesday night on the State of the Union, and quite possibly on the Watergate crisis. W_th the general shape and nature of the President's 1974 leglslat£ve program already well known, interest in his address centered on the question of whether he would talk about the troubles that beset him and his Presidency. Washington: Russia is reportedly seeking a naval base on the West African coast from which its warships could patrol sea lanes connecting Europe with Latin America and South Africa.

Space Center, Houston: Despite some space station and weather problems, Skylab 3's astronauts will complete about 90 percent of the experiments planned for their 84_day mission.

PLT We have center of mass and EREP. I still am waiting for the 193 part of the malf. CC Okay; very good. We'll - we'll try to get that up to you. PLT And Crip, you can save me a few minutes, here, I'm sort of in a bind for time, if you can have the film people quickly confirm or clarify on Nikon 2 and Nikon 4 if there's downloading involved.

SPT Look; if you want to go ahead I can - I don't have a heck of a lot more, so if he's sitting right there let's go ahead and press on. I can listen to him. CC Okay; that's fine. He's present. MCC Okay, Ed. This morning on the Sun, don't really have anything to add other than so far we have no hard evidence of the return of active region 14. Main thing wanted to mention here or give you a chance to ask questions about is, the next orbit's worth of operations we've scheduled - well, we haven't really called it ops time, but that's in effect what it is. We're attempting to scheduled what you recommended yesterday on that line of three bright points. Where - we want to try to get as much of it into many MARs as we can and run repetitive mini-MARs for about half the available time little less than half actually. Go to one of the brightest points, take a grating scan and go back and finish off the rest of that time with mini-MARs as we've started. Ad if you don't have any questions on that, that was the main thing. Also to point out to you that we are in the process of negotiating for another JOP 13 two days from now but there are many conflicts and problems with computations, so whether or not that comes about is unclear right now. Other than that, inputs from you was about all else I had on my llst. SPT Bill, I'm not in the A - by the ATM. We got that locked up for $233. The only thing I can say is that the bright points which I looked at yesterday are started to fade and one on the end is not anywhere near as bright as it was before. So it doesn't look as good a target as it did yesterday, but I'ii go ahead and work _t over something similar to it. MCC Okay; sounds find. And if it doesn't look like the right thing to do Just press on and do whatever looks right. SPT Okay. CC Okay. We're about 30 seconds from LOS, and next station contact is going to be through Goldstone in 24 minutes at 13:29, 13:29. We don't have Hawaii this pass. CDR Roger, Crip, and $233 was a bum_er.

CC I guess we'll probably go ahead and send it up, that way it will be available there on the panel if The rest of you ought to take a look at it. It will be applicable for the next couple of days, probably. SPT Yeah, why don't you go ahead and do that. Whenever we have the exposure coming up where we fall into that situation it wouldn't hurt for the CAP COMM to give whoever is on the panel a reminder at that time. CC Rog.

Before I whistle away from the panel here. Let me give you a quick overview. Won't take long here. XDV monitor shows the brightest regions coming around the east limb, poking at about 270, fairly bright one about 0.9 - 0.94 some brightening above that at - at 270 or around 280, there's some limb brightening. Several bright points around on the disk. The active region 37 is very difficult to distinguish from bright points. There's a bright point at around 140.2 and 120.4 and l0 6.5, and a few others scattered around. Filament channel down running east/west down pretty much close to the center about 0.5 degrees, or 0.5 solar radii down and we have coronal hole to the north and south. At the north we've got a filament channel running parallel to the coronal hole, pretty much what we've talked about in terms of helium. It's real (garble) banding. Maybe that's what we're looking at here in the oxygen VI I'm sorry; in the XUV monitor, white light coronagraph (garble) strong streamers on I0.

I don't know whether you're going to have an opportunity to try for it this time, but if you do, the laser again will be a local startout with i watt. We'd like to get one photo of it if you find it. We assume you will, and if - after you report that we can go ahead and reduce it down to a half watt per your previous request and get another photo of it then. PLT Okay. CC Skylab, Houston.

And Crip, just something to pass to you before I forget it again. Last night's evening status report we should have included under inoperable equipment the blood pressure cuff_ serial number 011, broke yesterday in t_at it failed to send a signal to the ESS apparently. We were getting no blood pressure light or reading. We swapped out, we have a new cuff which is serial number 12, and everything's working fine. CC Okay. Appreciate that report, and when somebody does get up to the - around the area of the STS there, there're a couple of things that I want to check. SPT You got 30 degrees clockwise on each one, Crip. What else do you need? CC Okay. We copy that pump Charlie apparently quit on us last night and we wondered if - like to ver±fy that the switch for pump Charlie on panel 203 is in OFF now and also that the circuit breaker on panel 202 for pump Charlie on the ATM coolant loop - coolant pump, ratherp is _ is CLOSED. SPT Circuit breakers for Bravo and Charlie are both CLOSED Would you like CC on pump Bravo. and that all pumps are turned off at the present reconfigured? Okay. We thought we were running on time.

It looks like it might have got turned off accidently. SPT Yes, it sure did. It's on. CC Thank you, sir. CC I'm back wi£h you through Texas now. We got you for about 12-1/2 minutes. That REG adjust you did for us looks good. SPT Okay; thank you, Crip. Just as you were going over the hill when I was talking to the white light coronagraph there's two real faint features. One at 120 and one at 090, both very narrow streamers, radial. I don't believe I was able to get those in. Otherwise, no significant change. CC Okay. Pre appreciate your keeping us updated on what's happening with old SOL. SPT Crip, I'd like to move 133 again if I could back one night. That's not tonight but tomorrow night. If there's any questio_ on that, why don't they channel them through Chuck Ross and I'll talk to him tonight. CC We copy. SPT, Houston. Ed, I take it that the 133 cap is causing you a little bit of difficulty in sleeping, or is that the problem? SPT It's not really that. Why don't you just let me talk to Chuck Ross tonight, Crip. CC Okeydoke. PLT Crip, I'm all ready to get a picture of tke laser but how gout - how about giving me a call about 24 past the hour so I don't miss the maneuver. CC Rog, We'll keep a watch on it for you. PLT Okay. I've got him, Crip. CC Very good. And PLT, Houston. Bill, whenever y-ou'd like to get the photo and everything and you'd l_ke to try to reduce power on it, well give us a word. PLT Go ahead now, Crip, and reduce the power. CC Okay; in work. Okay.

PLT Thank you, Crip. SPT That yellow shows up pretty well, Crip. CC Sound like it. Guys've done a fantastic Job of seeing at it. Sounds like more of not a function of wanting it so much_ it's just getting out and getting a slant range down through the haze maybe the big problem there at that distance. CDR Looks like probably the way to go is use a green or something for acquisition and then once you acquire shift over to yellow for range. SPT It terminated rather abruptly, Crip. I could see it getting dimmer then all of a sudden it just cut off and _ and I'm not sure whether a cloud a cirrus all of a sudden got in our line of sight and obscured it. CC Okay; copy that.

CC Skylab, Houston. We're AOS through Goldstone for 12 minutes. CDR Roger, Crip. CC CDR, Houston. If it's convenient here, I could try to give you a few words about doing 93 ALTIMETER and what we were trying to do and where we think we are. CDR Okay. Fine. CC Okay. The reason we've been concerned is that we haven't be able to get the ALTIMETER MODE to lock up. It keeps unlocking, as probably been obvious to you in the passes. So we were trying with that little test that we had Bill run - Bill and you - Both of you run earlier today, to find out if the antenna, itself, was tracking properly. I guess we've just about concluded that the altimeter or in the ALTIMETER MODE, the antenna is positioned to the right a little over a degree. At least that's what the readings that you're giving us indicate. We would also conclude from what you said in that test that you ran, what was supposed to have happened was the antenna was supposed to go to the right and then step back to the center and then go to the left and step back to the center once more. And it sounded as though it never did go to the left. However, during the last pass, in a RAD/SCAT mode, the antenna did track properly both right and left. And, also, I guess, right there at the last, just before we left you through Vanguard, it would have appeared that the ALTIMETER MODE locked up very briefly. Quick synopsis, that's about where we're at. We're still not don't understand why it doesn't appear to be centering itself properly in the ALTIMETER MODE. CDR Okay, Crip. Thanks for the fill-in. Let Bill think about it a little bit. But, as I remember from what he was telling me, it just wasn't going to the left at all. CC Okay. That That's what we got out of that last briefing. Also, I can give you couple of words here. We're setting down trying to trying to get your Flight Plan for your day off put together. Then, go back and forth a little bit. I mentioned, earlier, that we were talking about around-the-world altimeter pass. We're still considering that. We do have an EREP,. If for some reason, we conclude the altimeter's not working properly, we_'ll still Eave an EREP pass for tomorrow. I believe we've got one ATM pass scheduled, which is just the synoptic. All

Loss of signal through Vanguard. Next acquisition will be Tananarlve in 14 minutes. Sunday, February 3, is the day planned for the fourth and final EVA for the Skylab program, an EVA now scheduled to last 4 hours and 35 minutes, which will raise the EVA total for Skylab IV to 21 hours and 37 minutes. EVAs in Skylab III were 12 hours and 47 minutes in duration. Three EVAs in Skylab II, a standup EVA and two actual EVAs, for a total of 5 hours and 31 minutes. Sunday's EVA will have Science Pilot Ed Gibson workin_ in the fixed airlock shroud area in the EVA bay while Commander Gerald Carr will be the crewmember doing the work outside the ATM and deployment of the experiments. Pilot Pogue will be in the multiple docking adapter at the ATM console and display panel monitoring an the EVA from within there. Scheduled for activities on the EVA Sunday is S - S020 setup for the S020 camera, setup also of the T025 contamination experiment. Also the crew will retrieve the S052, S054, S056 and H-alpha film for return as well as the S082A and S082B film. They'll also install the S149 particle collection device and they'll leave it out there after they leave the spacecraft. They'll also retrieve parts parts of the experiment $230, the magnetoshere particle composition experiment, while also retrieving the $228 and bring back also the SL-III twin poon twin boom sail mater_al which has been placed on a clipboard on a handrail at the structural transition section. Also to be retrZeved in the EVA is the D024 experiment. The EVA is sckaduled to last 4 hours and 35 minutes, bringing to a total for the Skylab IV mission of 21 hours 37 minutes. The longest EVA in the program was on Christmas Day on mission day 40 for the craw when they spent 7 hours and i minute outside the spacecraft.

CC Skylab, this is Houston, 2 minutes till LOS. We'll be giving you a call at 12:33 in the morning through Hawaii, and as we mentioned earlier for wakeup. The film thread pad is on board right now if you desire to take a look at it tonight. And also for the CDR we have a message number 7755 to be specific that will be coming up sometime this evening that addresses the TV-27 comm configuration. And you notice that we have TV-27 comm check scheduled at 13:13 at Ascension in the morning. You may want to go ahead and try and gather some of this stuff together tonight. And you can go ahead and do everything except step 4 this evening. And we do want - we do need to get out of the way before the EREP pass so we can check out the comm. Over. CDR Roger, copy. CC And we've been sitting down here going over the deactivation checklist modifications. And we anticipate having the pads prepared on the detail shift tomorrow evening, so we'll probably get them up to you tomorrow night while you sleep. Over. CDR Okay, Bruce. Thank you. CC And bid you a good night. I0,000 on the DAS if you want us. And you can pull the BUFFER AMP 1 circuit breaker at your pleasure to get rid of the noise. You may recall we had you put that back in so we could redesignate tape recorders. That evolution has passed. CDR Thank you Bruce, I've already pulled that breaker. I'd appreciate whatever you could get of tomorrow on deactivation. Because times awasting as far as time available to make chan checklist changes, and that's a very time consuming process. I planned on getting a lot of it done tomorrow. CC Well_ we won't have the deact checklist changes tomorrow for you, it will be tomorrow evening.
