THIS IS THE ROUGH UNEDITED TRANSCRIPT OF THE SKYLAB CHANNEL B

COMMUNICATIONS. RAW MEDICAL DATA HAS BEEN DELETED.

NASA has never publicly released raw medical data from manned space

flights, Medical data obtained on Skylab missions is proprietory to the principal


investigators involved in the particular experiments involved. Fragments of

raw medical data have no intrinsic diagnostic value until compared and collated

with preflight and postfiight medical information.

The medical experiments PI's will meet weekly to discuss their data and

briefings to the press will be scheduled after these meetings.

NASA will continue to regularly report on the general health and well-

being of the Skylab flight crew.

18 52 12 PLT Tape recorder, this is the PLT answering the


questions that were sent up yesterday on the
teleprinter regsrding the SEVA. Question 1 on trying
to cut the strap. No, I did not cut the strap,
because I felt we did not have the right tools on
board to do it with. The strap was down very tight
against the beam fairing. Next question: Can you
get to the strap under the beam fair - under the SAS
or beam fairing? Let me explain further to you what
it is or - what it appears to he. There is a section
of meteoroid shield which is directly under the beam
fairing, and this is then bolted through the - what
we saw at Huntsville as kind of a standard method
-- on the meteoroid shield of the shield sheet being
advanced to angle and the angle's then bolted
together. And this is one of those Joint lines that
ran longitudinally the length of the meteoroid shield,
parallel to and Just outboard of the beam fairing.
So it doesn't go under the SAS or under the beam
fairing. The next question is, Could I get the two-
pronged tool under the strap? Yes, sir, I could.
As a matter of fact, we slmost left it there.
Because that goes with the next question - I did
push in on the beam, got the two-pronged tool
between the beam and the strap and then had one devil
of a time trying to get it back out.

18 53 h8 PLT Question 5 is, Yes, sir, the strap is definitely dug


into the beam fairing. What it looks like to me is,
it is really wrapped tight right up against it, and
if there are any protruding bolt heads or - bolt
threads, they are right down into that beam fairing.
It's almost like it was put on there. I really - I
almost find it hard to believe it's on there so
tight. Number 6 is the specific origin of the strap
(chuckle) we just talked about - I think. Any more
questions give me a call. On - number 7 on observing
deflection, I did mot observe any. However, the
Comm_ider, watching out his window, said that the
._ end of the beam fairing, when I first pulled on it
using the shepherd hook, he estimates deflected about
a foot. Now I pulled it towards me; it deflected.
I also moved the whole workshop, surprisingly, at
which point the TACS squirted at us and started to |

move back. And, as a matter of fact, the w_or_

Question number 8, there is no sheet metal attached [
to this angle strap outboard of the beam fairing.
Of course, there is underneath. The entire section
of meteoroid "shield which lay under the beam fairing |
at launch is still there.

18 55 27 PLT And question 9, the last - -

19 20 31 SPT Hello, friendly tape recorder. This is the SPT doing


temperatures. The ambient thermometer in wardroom 4,
7h9 Bravo, reade 103 degrees.

19 26 05 SPT Hey, Pete, the temperature indicator down here is off

00 26 h7 SPT Hello, tape recorder. This is the SPT. I'm


going to resume and repeat and correct the CSM food
log for aays 1 a_d 2. We've given you the informa-
tion in this procedure and I'm sure M071 people are
most anxious to find out what is really going on.
So I'm going to go over the CSM menu, day by day,
and fill in the blanks. Day I, for the CDR, he ate
everything. He had 16 shots, that is 8 ounces of

water. He had no medication. No Delta H20 , no


salt packages. And we had no supplements on that
day. The SPT ate all his food, 15 shots of water,
one SCOP/DEX as previously recorded - reported. No

Delta H20 and no salt. The PLT ate everything on


day 1 except 1/3 of the asparagus and the bread.
And meal Charlie: he had 16 shots of water. And
one application of Afrin for nasal congestion.

There was no Delta H20 , and no salt packs. Okay,


on day 2 for the Cormmaz_der, the only foods that
were eliminated were the asparagus and the peanuts.
He had 32 shots of water, and two applications of

Afrin, in the medication. No Delta H20. No salt


packs. And we did not take our supplements on
day 2. The SPT did not consume one coffee, one
biscuit and one lemon pudding. The PLT did not con-
sume peach ambrosia, macaroni, bread, butterscotch
pudding, apricots, or coffee. He had 38 shots
of water. No medication. The SPT, to go back,
excuse me, had six shots of water and no medica-
tion. And the rest of the log is blank.

L 00 29 38 SPT On day 3, so far, to start with, we took our


medication - or supplements for day 2 and day 3
on the morning of day 3. The CDR took two
magnesium, two calcium. The SPT took one mag-
nesium and one calcium. The PLT took one mag-
nesium. This did not account for items . .. were
nominal supplements.

00 30 07 SPT So far, the CDR has eaten everything in the


first two meals except the corn - which was
a bag failure. The bag failed at its seam
prior to being rehydrated. Got corn powdered all
over everything. The SPT has not had his biscuit
and Jam or his peach pudding. He intends to eat
at least the peaches and the rest as he gets to it.
However, the SPT will probably not get to his
apricots tonight nor his butter cookies. The PLT
Dump Tape lhS-001
Time: 00:26:h7 to 00:30:07
Page 2 of 2

only had half of his bread for breakfast. And has


yet to eat his vanilla wafers or his lemon pudding
fram lunch. And we're going to be vague on this
probably by evening report because the days are
running so late. We won't give you the water and
the salt or delta H20 tmtil the evening report.
And that's it.

F510 is 13017. And the PRD reading stowed in B-I of
the command module is 49017. Out.

05 37 16 PLT Tape recorder, this entry concerns stowage, if you'll


pass to them. Tonight we dug out the personal hygiene
kit spares container and found that every tube of
Keri hand cream in there had ruptured. I don't know
why. It must have been a combination of the tempera-
ture and the pressure, because the ones that were
stowed in our individual hygiene kits in the waste
management compartment are intact. Also, about two-
thirds of the toothpaste, which is stowed - which is
all the toothpaste on board - which is stowed in the
overage kit, as it were, has burst. And some of it
has been cooked to the point where it is very, very
thick and unusable anymore, although some of it still
is usable. And it appears that that will be a re-
supply problem for the next mission.

12 38 53 SPT Okay, B channel, this is the SPT on the MllO blood


letting excercise. The serial numbers are as follows:
for the CDR, his ASP is 153; his vial 006; the SPT,
ASP 1_8, vial 004; the PLT, ASP 165, vial 011 ....
procedure, the major problem so far is that one of the
ASPs didn't take a good vacuum. It was the SPT's
ASP that was the last one used, and only about half
the blood went into it. I had to draw on myself,
again, using a freshly sucked down ASP, and that worked
fine. I recommend that from now on, and the way we're
going to do it, {s that i will put the ASP, unaspered,
a couple of minutes before the draw. Leave it there,
and take it off Just in time to receive the blood.
That way we'll be sure we have a fresh vacuum and
no leakage, and then we don't have to do it twice.
... the general comment is that there are an awful
lot of loose pieces, and the IBCS kit itself will
r not stay closed, will not stay down on the table;
won't stay together at all because the material is
so stiff. And the Velcro, there is a lot of it, but
none of it holds. It's lousy stuff•

PLT Okay, B channel. Just had an accident with an in-


stant breakfast. There was a lot of air in the con-
tainer before reconstitution, and there was quite a
bit of instant breakfast powden leaking out the top
before reconstitution. On reconstitution, it wouldn't
accept 6 ounces of water because there was too much
air in it. And consequently, the water leaked out
around the nozzle.

CDR Darnl

PLT In general, if you put less than the specified amount


Of fluid in, and-d0n't get too much air in the water,
and hold your finger over the nozzle while you're
shaking it, you do better.

for the SPT, 18011; for the PLT 06018. End of mes-
sage.

13 50 06 SPT Hello, B channel. Let me finish Mll0. The centri-


fuge worked okay. All the plasma samples are clear ;
however, two of them, the CDR's and the PLT's, had
large bubbles of gas in them. And I suspect this
is the same problem that the ASPER, after it evac-
uated, is leaking back rather rapidly; and, that
those two had more air in it. The procedure I dis-
cussed previously for evacuating the ASPER will take
care of that. A glance at the specimens seemed to
show that the SPT's hematocrit is lower that the
other two. This may be a crude index of hydration,
and I'd like you guys to figure out something we
_ talked about a long time ago and never did anything
about. And that is, the crew hematocrit index,
based on the level of the separation between cells
and plasma on the outside of the ASP.

all day.

15 07 18 CDR Oh! Okay, this - this ... The CDR and the PLT
worked about 20 minute intervals; wearing cloud
Jackets, PWGs, pants and shoes, worked about 20 min-
ute intervals and took about 5 to l0 minutes breaks
to cool off while erecting the parasol.

utes was about it. Without - .... It was not get-
ting extremely hot. It was not sweating profusely or
anything like that. It was Just a time that we could
tell we were beginning to strain, and it was time to
leave and cool off a little bit. I think we could
have worked 20 minutes down there and 5 minutes up in
the cool all day long. We did drink plenty of water
that day°

15 09 O1 CDR Okay, making a poll of the crewmen, nobody used any


mineral supplement out of the command module, other
than that normally called for during the meal. And
no extra salt was used by any of the three crewmen.
Question number 4: during ...... transfer A, any ...
The answer to that question was no; B, any smells
detected? The answer to that question is no. And we
haven't tried to dispose of any food. Question number
5: what was the iodine concentration parts per million
when water was sampled at the wardroom food table -
at the end of the wardroom purge? The answer to that
is, it was somewhere between 3 and 4 parts per million,
closer to 4, so we estimated 3.8 parts per million.
That answers all of message OB16 Charlie.

18 05 21 SPT Okay, this is the SPT on phototrip. This is infor-


mation for the photo people. Apparently had a trans-
porter failure on transporter 01, which I was using
instead of 02, to load the film trim on 92 - M171.
I was also using supply reel Charlie India01 and
takeup reel Mike Tango01. And we had three consec-
utive failure java in the transporting using that
combination. I then switched both transporter and
supply reel; transporter to 03, and supply reel to
Charlie IndiaO2. And then I didn't get a Jam in the
transporter, but the takeup reel failed to take up.
So I switched the takeup reel to Mike Tango02, and
everything works fine. So the situation now is that
we have transporter 02 with supply CI02 and takeup
MT02 ready for MISI. Transporter 01 is in the locker
slot where I got 03 out of and it's red-taped. Supply
reel MT01 is going to go back where it was - came
from red-taped. I don't know what's wrong with it.
And supply reel 01, Charlie India01, if we find it,
it slipped off the velcro and is gone; if we find it,
I'm going to put it back, and we'll give it another
try before we declare it failed. Can't say anything
in detail about the Jams, except that they were in
the transporter, and film was either not getting
through at all to the takeup reel, or getting through
in a very bent-up and damaged condition.

2.69948, 2.69958, 2.69956. Remarks: It was noted
that the right thumbscrew that holds the calibra-
tion package, tied to the BMMD, had worked its
way loose during the calibration, thus I think the
scatter in sequences _, 5, 6, 7. And I recommend
the next time it be done, that it be tightened with
a pair of pliers. It was tight as much as I can
tighten it with my fingers, but in zero g, they
tend to hack off. Another remark is, there was no
S020. We used 2509 batteries, T003, plus a piece
of mosite and a strap to hold them down. And we
will return the strap and the mosite at the end of
the flight and have the stowage people pick that
up. End of BMMD cal message.

17 _i 25 CDH Hello, friendly B channel. This is for MI71; the


CDR. On my run today, the only way I could ride
the bike halfway efficiently _as to move the seat
all the way forward, and I jacked up the seat height
to - I Jacked the seat height up to number 6. And
that puts my legs much more directly, or my hip
much more directly over the pedals, and then I take
the load, up-load through the harness on my
hips and my shoulders. Okay, the first step,
55 watts, and the next step, 105 watts were nothing,
and my heart rate did get as high as it normally does
on ground. But the 155 was just like finishing up
the 200-watt, 20 minute protocol that we had; I was
really running out of gas. And yet, I was using
muscles that I don't normally use down on the ground,
so I don't know whether I'm going to get more effi-
cient or less efficient or what's going to happen.
So take it for what it's worth. End of MO - MI71

19 50 _0 PLT Hello, tape recorder. Stowage note. On the S190


cassette bags; that is, the bag that the replacement
Slg0 film was brought up in, the pad says to stow
the empty bags in F-521. However, F521 is still full;
therefore, the bags are in F520. That's the empty
S190 cassette bags are in F520.

SPT Friendly PTL, the SPT with some ATM dumps. On the
J0P 6 building block 1 that I ran, the second 82A
exposure inadvertently reached to duration of 4 min-
utes instead of l minute and 40 seconds because when
I'm using the timer, I'm sorry. On the JOP 4 - no,
rather building block 4B, when I maximized detector 1
on the H-alpha bright spot ... And, indeed it is
possible to m_ximize the detector by a factor of 3
or 4. So I got a reading of about 650 to 700, as
compared to a background of 150 to 200. And I got it
to about 1 slit width or a little more outboard or
toward the limb from the bright spot at H-alpha.
That might be useful both to the PI's and to the
training people.

PLT And let me timecheck those remarks. The time is 20:05./


/
20 28 29 SPT Friendly B channel, this is the SPT on the latest /
stowage change to preclude ... from using the only
empty locker in my sleep compartment. I have taken
the two charcoal gas masks and I've put th_n in dome
locker ntmber 426 in the area vacated by the first

PLT - - with the end of the - that ATM ..., while observing
the H-Alpha 2 di_p]s¥ on the TV monitor, it appeared
to me that i saw a sunsetbehind the Earth. And we

I don't know what happened. You all might take a look
at it and see if you see anything. Or, we might watch

03 18 22 SPT Hey, sweet lovely B channel, your lonely SPT, who


is hungering for human companionship, would like to
report that the serial numbers of the darn! - for
tomorrow's form letter - (Laughter).

03 18 _6 SPT The PLT's (laughter) is number 094. The CDR's is


number ll7, and the SPT's is number 195. Please
remember that, number 195. Good night.

03 35 16 SPT Hello, B channel. This is the SPT at about 03:35,


answering the questions that came up on the
teleprinter as we went to sleep here. Question
number h was ... Dresently loaded in the ATMDC?
I really don't know; possibly 0. I suggest if
Houston is unable to load one in the ATMDC and they
want a particular one loaded, we'll he glad to do
it for them. But I don't remember the last time I
loaded a maneuver card.

OB 36 32 SPT Okay. Question number 6. I did report that S082 A


had the OPERATING light ON after the mode terminated.
And I'm trying to remember what the mode was; I
think it was auto. No, I know it was auto, hut I
don't remember if it was auto 2 or not. Look that
up on the ATM schedule pad, which is not handy to me
at the moment. The light was on until I stopped it
by pullingMAIN POWER to OFF and back ON. Hitting
the STOP switch had no effect on the OPerATING light.
The PLT subsequently reported the same thing during
his night pass.

03 37 20 SPT Number 7 is confirmed - about the ... a half


second is obviously an estimate. The following
ones were 1 second, 2 seconds, h seconds, and I
don't know if I had - don't remember if you caught
an 8-second one or not, but those were the times.

13 32 36 SPT Good morning, B channel. This is the SPT with some


con_ents on the }4110. The centrifuge is working
very well; however, it's still not batting a
thousand - on the complete procedure. Today, the
PLT's blood appeared to be on the verge of clotting,
when it got into the air. And although I evacuated
the air for a further procedure, I discussed yes-
terday, that is, leaving it on the fetal until it
was ready to receive the blood. It worked fine on
the other two. The PLT's blood didn't go in very
well_ and I don't know whether that's because of
an inadequate vacuum, or because perhaps I didn't
shake the syringe hard enough and the - for one
reason or another we had some clotting problem. As
a result - here's - plasma vials did not fill and
the blood sample that you will receive has a layer
of plsRm8 at the top of the column of blood, but no
plasma separated. The other two were fine. And
that's about it. The only other procedural comment
I have for-the follow--on troops is when you with-
draw the needle from the ASP after inserting the
blood, you should wrap a tissue around it; because
it's very difficult to exert Just the right amount
of pressure not to withdraw blood from the ASP, and
also not to get a spill from the needle when you
withdraw the blood.

13 41 24 CDR Hello, friendly B channel. This is the CDR. Just


stowing the third suit that belongs to Dr. Kerwin.
I have taken the helmet guard, which we had for the
SEVA, and I have stowed it in dome locker 41h along
with one of the - - ... located there.

13 53 45 PLT Hello - Hello, tape recorder. This is for the FAO.


For airlock operation, the fit and pressurization of
the airlock takes much longer than I anticipated,
and we're going to have to allow about 5 minutes.
in there to vent the airlock and to pressurize it
prior to the airlock operations.

14 24 Oh PLT B channel, a procedural note. The - with the TV


c_mPras in location A-IO - -

SPT We don't know that that's the right . ..

lh 24 21 PLT - - the MI31 supply locker can't be opened; the -


the camera has to either be turned upside down or
moved.

15 lh 43 PLT Okay, B channel, a couple of notes on M131. On the


OGI mode, for some reason the alinement between the
biteboard and the goggles was imperfect, by, I'd say,
5 to 8 degrees of nick side tilt [?]. In other
words, if he bit the biteboard, his head was to the
right or to the left of where it should have been
for the goggles. We did a little of metal bending,
and we wind up with his head firmly in the goggles
and straight, But he's not in the tooth holes in the
biteboard anymore. On the MS modes, the forward
proximity center is too short to be reached at all
by the subject when he Bends forward. This is
because it was marginal in the first place, and
because you float up higher in the chair in zero g
than you do in one g, and you Just can't get down
there and reach it. Another design cogent is that
the seat belt with the Velcro does not hold you well
enough.

15 45 28 SPT Okay, B channel, this is MI31, the PLT. The MS


mode - The result was as follows: 150 head movements
were performed at zero xpm. At fiftieth head move-
merit, the PLT reported that he felt like he was
moving. Pitching up and rolling left as a ... it is
not a symptom, it's a co_nent. The 70th head move-
ment, he repeated that cnmment, saying that he felt
as if his gyros were dripping. At the 150th movement,
he noticed epigastric awareness and a little saliva-
tion at about llO. However, those symptoms decreased
in intensity and he finished around 150 head movements
with essentially no symptoms. And also ... I'm -
I'm not going to repeat the direction of rotation in
the responses on the OGI test because the first test,
I'm not sure whether I added them all correctly. And
on the fourth level, I thought I had added them all
correctly, but the machine said increase, which was
wrong. So here we go. - At level l, clockwise - no,
that's - sorry - counterclockwise, left, none; clock-
wise, right, none; clockwise, none, right; count -
counterclock - clockwise again, left, right. That's

said left, right, and that's wrong. Let me start
level l0 over again. Clockwise, right, left; counter-
clockwise, left, left; clockwise, none, left; counter-
clockwise, left, right, which is six out of eight,
and that's - that's his threshold. At the 18th level
he got them all right, very strong positive sensations,
along with seat of the pants ... And that's it.

16 19 59 PLT Hello, ... On S019, a preliminary check of the


primer shows that opening the shutter is indicated,
and stopping when indicated at 30 seconds gives
you 30-second exposure, and at 270 seconds it
gives you 275-second exposure.

17 20 22 PLT Okay, B channel, this is ATM operation - the 17:13


pad, building block _ on filament 62. The roll is
exactly the same today as it was yesterday. The
pointing, I think, is about 20 arc seconds. I was
going to say lower. It'll be lower, and I'll
give you the experiment roll, which is minus 5640.
In other words, about 30 arc seconds farther than
it was yesterday because the portion of the filament
Just beyond the western pointing end of it
appears to have thinned out ... between today and
yesterday. So in an effort to fill the slit, I
moved the slit about 30 arc seconds to the east [?].

ATM observations. The SPT did a survey of the limb
pr_ainences and Just wants to note, for the training
people especially, that the prominences are nicely
visible at H-alpha i, and their sensitivity to so
much of the temperatures in the monitor is fair,
but it is not as great as it was in training. And
if you move the disks into the monitor, and they
don't ... quite so quickly. Which makes it easy to
do a survey - you can have about a quarter of a TV
screen filled with disks, do a front centered roll,
and - and convert it into ... that goes blank. For
the PI's are ... three - three - three type promi-
nences on the northeast ... on at this time about -

21 22 24 PLT Hello, tape recorder, for the _EP people. The S190
desiccants are not near as blue as they were yesterday.
As a matter of fact, they're very light blue. I don't
know what the significance of that is ; we'll watch it.
Apparently, it's Just more moisture getting in those
camera stations than we thought would. End of mes-

21 51 54 PLT Hello, tape recorder. For the continuation observa-


tion, STS window number B is perfectly clear. The
wardroom window, however, is another story. It has
the ice - piece of ice in the middle of it which we
previously described. It also has what appears to be
a dirty film, probably on the outside of the outer
pane because it has what appears to be water streaks
down it and since they do tend to the aft end of the
vehicle, I suspect that that same water was on the
pad. There is quite a bit of oily looking film. It's
hard to tell if it's on the inside or outside of the
outer pane. A few darker, dirty looking spots llke
condensation. And in these tracks it looks llke
some water has run down over the window.
