Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. Vance, are you there?

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. The picture that Jim gave me on his view through the COAS was within the—the partial Earth, the lit portion laying in the top half of the COAS with the cusp laying right on the Y-Y line. And so the—The whole dark part of the Earth would be at the bottom part of the Earth, except a very thin crescent of the dark part to a line—line above the Y-Y line.

Fred Haise (LMP)

And that in essence—that in—Yes, that in essence would put our X-axis pointing toward the Sun.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

That's correct. The plus X-axis pointing toward the Sun and perpendicular to the terminator of the Earth.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Two other points, Fred. One is that we don't expect hardly any misalinement of your engine for the burn, so we don't really expect any rates throughout the length of the burn, especially since it's at very low thrust. Second point, request you verify that your suit temperature rheostat's in FULL COLD. That—if it—If it were in FULL COLD, that might help your cabin temperature situation. It might bring the temperature up.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. The latter was a good point. We had it in FULL HOT.

Fred Haise (LMP)

And Roger on the—Roger on the rates, too.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay, Vance. Is the Tig time going to be approximately—Is it 105 or 105:30?

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. Your 104:30 time to start in is—sounds pretty good. That'll give us lots of time to get set up with the attitude business, in case we have any trouble stopping PTC and getting there and—That will give us a little time to be sitting and waiting, all set up.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Aquarius, Houston. Over.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Are you calling, Vance?

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Right, Fred. We just noticed a 2-pound drop in your water quantity. Have you guys had a drink recently or do you know any reason why it might have dropped? Over.

Fred Haise (LMP)

All right. Go ahead, Vance.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Fred, that may be a funny in the data. The rate's gone back to normal; and we'll keep an eye on it, but we don't think you should worry about it too much.

Fred Haise (LMP)

And, Houston, Aquarius.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Are we going to get any sort of a pad on this?

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

That's affirm, Fred. Estimating we'll have it to you in about 15 minutes.

Fred Haise (LMP)

And, Houston, you might just let us know if there's any chance it's going to slip further down the road, because we're going to kind of hold to that 104:30 start time. And if you're going to delay any, we'll delay accordingly.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Roger. We won't have any trouble making that, Fred, I'm told.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Hello, Houston; Aquarius.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Roger. We have about 104 degrees now. How does that …?

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay. FIDO's hustling here. We'll try to get it right up to you. Stand by.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Over.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Vance, we have the quad heaters on, now.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Roger. Copy, Jim. And the—Jack's going to read you the pad right now, so I recommend you go ahead and get started. You shouldn't be delayed by the pad at all.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. I've got your burn pad.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Roger, Houston. Stand by. Are you ready—Stand by to copy. Okay. Ready to copy.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay. A P30 maneuver pad on the DPS: purpose is midcourse 5, NOUN 33, 105:30:00.00, NOUN 81 is N/A, HA is N/A, perigee, plus 0019.8, 0.007.8, 0.15, the rest is N/A. Shut down the engine at 1 second prior to the end of burn time. Shut down at 14 seconds manually. Ullage is four jets for 10 seconds, 10-percent throttle. Go ahead.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay, Jack. We've got a DPS midcourse 5: NOUN 33, 105:30:00.00; NOUN 81, N/A; HA N/A; plus 0019.8, 0007.8, burn time 0.15, the rest of the pad, N/A. Shut down manually at 14 seconds, ullage four jets for 10 seconds, and the entire burn is at 10-percent throttle.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay, Fred. I want to verify that your DELTA-VR is 0007.8.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. I read you back 0007.8.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay. Good readback. You got it.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston, I have some additional entry data that goes with the pad I just read up. It's five items. Let me know when you're ready to copy. It's on a maneuver pad.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. I'll try to squeeze them in there, Jack. I'm rapidly running out of pads.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay. It's N/A all the way down to NOUN 61. Your latitude is minus 21 —

Fred Haise (LMP)

Hold on a minute; hold on. You need the—Hold on, Jack, I need the other pad book, that CSM pad.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay. NOUN 61: latitude, minus 21.67, minus 165.37, 1163.1, 36292, 142:41.02. Read back.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. NOUN 61; minus 21.67, minus 165.37. 1163.1, 36292, 142:41.02.

Fred Haise (LMP)

And you should have high bit rate now, Jack.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay, Fred. We're getting it now.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Did you have readouts on our quad temps to know when we can start? We're taking a time hack. We'd just like a verification with you.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger. Your quad temps look good from here.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay, Houston; Aquarius. We're going to stop PTC at this time.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger, Aquarius. Go ahead.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Negits on my last, Fred.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay, Jack. How do you read now?

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. I thought you called, Jack. We're maneuvering around here to fish for the Earth.

Fred Haise (LMP)

And, Houston, Aquarius. How's the ASA package temp look now?

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay, Fred. The ASA package temp is looking good. It's around 98 degrees, and we'd like to see it go up about 15 to 20 degrees.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. Why don't you give me the word before I proceed with the AGS. We really don't need it right this instant.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger. We'll be watching it.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. The ASA package temp is up now so you can activate the AGS.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay, Jack. So we can make sure and get our timer set here, I wondered when your—you've got about 48 minutes to the burn which should be coming up pretty quick—you'd give us a hack so we could set our event timer at 12.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger, Fred. I understand you want a mark at 17 minutes prior to the burn. Is that affirm?

Fred Haise (LMP)

Roger. We think we got it set now. We just wanted to check it. If we don't, then I'll set it to 13, and you can give me another hack at 47 to go.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

My mistake. It was 33 —

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger. It was reading 33 on my mark. Right?

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. You got about 105:03 GET now down there?

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

That's affirmative, Fred. Going through 105:03:45.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay, Jack. Give me the next number you want me to set then, and I'll take another hack here.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger. You're counting up, right?

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay, Fred. On my mark, be 35 minutes to the burn.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

We missed her, Fred. Let's get it on the next minute.
