Phase 5: Descent to the Moon

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Hello, Eagle. Houston. We're standing by. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Eagle, Houston. We see you on the steerable. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Roger. Eagle is undocked.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. How does it look, Neil?

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger, Neil. We got a—If you will give us P00 and DATA, we've got the loads for you.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. You've got it. P00 and DATA.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. Let us know when you are ready to copy. We have a DOI PAD, and a PDI PAD. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

You check our tracking light, Mike?

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Back off? Okay. I'm ready to start my yaw maneuver if it suits you, Mike.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Does it look like you are going to be able to do this without burning thrusters, Mike?

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Go ahead, Houston. Eagle is ready to copy.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger, Eagle. Coming at you with a DOI PAD: 101 36 14.07. NOUN 81, minus 00758, plus all balls, plus 00098 plus—correction, 00572, perigee plus 00085 00764 030 000 293. NOUN 86, minus 00759, plus all balls, plus 00090. Rest of the PAD is NA. Stand by on your readback. If you are ready to copy the PDI data, I have it for you. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Understand you are ready to copy the PDI data, Eagle. Over

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

That's affirmative. Go ahead with the PDI.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. PDI PAD: TIG 102 33 04.36 09 50, minus 00021, 182 287 000, plus 56919. PDI abort, less than 10 minutes, 105 12 30.00. PDI abort, greater than 10 minutes, 103 40 00.00 107 11 30.00. No PDI plus 12: 102 44 27.00. NOUN 81 plus 01223, minus all balls, plus 01889 01520 plus 00110 02250, burn time 046 000 190, plus 01187, plus all balls, plus 01911. NOUN 11 103 31 07.00. NOUN 37 105 12 30.00. Ready for your readbacks, Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Eagle, Houston. We are through with the computer. You can go, back to BLOCK. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Roger. Back to BLOCK; and REALIGN: 101 36 14.07 minus 00758,plus all zeros, plus 00098 00572, plus 00085 00764 030 000 293, minus 000759, plus all zeros, plus 00090. NA. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

That was a good readback, Buzz. Go ahead. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. PDI PAD: 102 33 04.36, 09 50, minus 00021 182 287 000, plus 56919. PDI less than 10: 105 12 30.00. PDI greater than 10: 103 40 00.00 107 11 30.00. No PDI plus 12 abort: 102 44 27.00, plus 01223, minus all zeros, plus 01889 01520, plus 00110 02250 046 000 190, plus 01187, plus 00000, plus 019011 103 31 07.00 105 12 30.00. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. Good readback, Buzz. Out.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Neil, I'm maneuvering in roll.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Houston, Eagle. Are you copying the very large numbers for range and range rate in VERB 83? And did you just give us a state vector that changed one of the two vehicles? Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger, Eagle. We gave you a LM state vector. We have not changed the CSM state vector, however. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. That explains it. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. On my Mark 9 30 to ignition.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Eagle, Houston. Would you have Columbia go to the high gain, yaw 0, pitch minus 20. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

You want him to go to high gain yaw 0? Say again the numbers.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger, Neil. Yaw 0, pitch minus 20, high gain angles. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Okay. Yaw 0, pitch minus 20 on the high gain.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

That's affirmative. We've lost all data with him.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

He says he'll do that as soon as he gets around there.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. How do you read?

Michael Collins (CMP)

I read you loud and clear, Houston. How me?

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger, Mike. Five by. On my Mark 7 minutes to ignition.

Michael Collins (CMP)

I agree. Everything's looking real good.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, Houston. You are looking good for separation. You are GO for separation, Columbia. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

We're really stabilized, Neil. I haven't burned a thruster in 5 minutes.
