Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger, Tranquility. We copy you on the ground. You got a bunch of guys about to turn blue. We're breathing again. Thanks a lot.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

You're looking good here.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Okay. We're going to be busy for a minute.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

MASTER ARM, ON. Take care of the … I'll get this …

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Very smooth touchdown.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. It looks like we're venting the oxidizer now.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger, Eagle. And you are STAY for —

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

— T1. Over. Eagle, you are STAY for T1.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Roger. Understand, STAY for T1.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. And we see you venting the OX.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

… copy NOUN 60, NOUN 43. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Houston, how do you read Columbia on the high gain?

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

— We read you five by, Columbia. He has landed, Tranquility Base. Eagle is at Tranquility. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Yes. I heard the whole thing.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Houston, Columbia went UPTELEMETRY COMMAND, RESET, to reacquire on the high gain.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Eagle, Houston. You loaded R2 wrong. We want 10254.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

And do you want V horizontal 5515.2?

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Like—AGS to PGNS align.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Like an AGS to PNGS align. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. We're standing by for it.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Eagle, Houston. You are STAY for T2. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Roger. STAY for T2. We thank you.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Tranquility Base, Houston. We recommend you exit P12. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Hey, Houston, that may have seemed like a very long final phase. The AUTO targeting was taking us right into a football field size—football field sized crater, with a large number of big boulders and rocks for about … one or two crater diameters around it, and it required a … in P66 and flying manually over the rock field to find a reasonably good area.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. We copy. It was beautiful from here, Tranquility. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

We'll get to the details of what's around here, but it looks like a collection of just about every variety of shape, angularity, granularity, about every variety of rock you could find. The colors—Well, it varies pretty much depending on how you're looking relative to the zero-phase point. There doesn't appear to be too much of a general color at all. However, it looks as though some of the rocks and boulders, of which there are quite a few in the near area, it looks as though they're going to have some interesting colors to them. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. Copy. Sounds good to us, Tranquility. We'll let you press on through the simulated countdown, and we'll talk to you later. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. This one sixth g is just like the airplane.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. Tranquility. Be advised there's lots of smiling faces in this room and all over the world. Over.
