Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. We just wanted to make sure that we were ready when you were ready. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. And to get the sextant star in LOI 2, that's roll zero. Is that affirmative?

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

That's affirmative. Roll zero.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, Houston. Five minutes until LOS. And with respect to your request for the nitrogen bottle pressures preburn, just before the burn, we were showing 2270 pounds per square inch on bottle Alfa and 2350 on bottle Bravo. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Apollo 11. Roger. Thank you.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, this is Houston. Two minutes to LOS. Your AOS on the other side is 80 33 21, and the friendly White Team will see you when you come out from behind the Moon.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Make that your friendly “Greens”. Your friendly White Team CAP COMM will see you when you come out from behind the Moon. I think it's basically the Maroon Team here, and we “Greenies” are leaving.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Okay. I don't blame you, Hank.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. I'd rather be up there.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Hello, Apollo 11. Houston. We're standing by. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

VGY minus 0.0, VGZ minus 0.1, DELTA-VC minus 5.2, fuel 362, OX 364, unbalance plus 50, and our postburn now 94's, 66.1 by 54.4. Go ahead.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. We copy, Neil. Would you say again the DELTA-VZ? We missed that. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Roger. That was minus 0.1.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. Copy the burn report. Sounds good.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

And all looked good up here.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, Houston. We missed your DELTA-TIG and also your DELTA burn time. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

DELTA-TIG was zero and the burn time was 17 seconds.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, Houston. We'll be satisfied if you pump up the cabin to 5.4. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Okay. We're showing about 5.2 right now.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

And, Charlie, the LM/CM DELTA-P is just over 1 pound right now.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Hello, Apollo 11. Houston. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, Houston. If you read, please attempt to acquire on the high gain. We're having trouble locking up on the TM and we have no voice. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Hello, Apollo 11, Apollo 11.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. We're reading you five by. Go ahead. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Roger. We have you on high gain now.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. We lost the TM and the voice for about 5 minutes here. We attempted a handover and fouled it up in some manner, but we got you back now. Thank you much.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Okay. We're pressurizing the LM at this time.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Hello, Apollo 11. Houston. We have a P22 AUTO optics update for you if you're ready to copy. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger, Mike. It's landmark Alfa 1: T1, 82 37 35; T2, 82 42 50. We're 7 miles north. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Copy. P22: T1, time 82 37 35; T2, 82 42 50. And the target is 7 miles north. Thank you.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

I get the distinct impression, Charlie, that mare there laps up over the edge of the mountains at the shorelines.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Houston. On your comment about the mare lapping up to the terrain—mountainous terrain, is that an impression like a lava flow coming in around a prominence, Neil, or is it more -looks like it's sloping up at that point? Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

It isn't true everywhere, but there's certainly places where there seems to be a slope downward towards the shoreline on the mare. In other words, from the mare down to the shoreline is a downward slope indicating that it might be a lava flow.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger.
