Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

And, you want to pick up some stuff, and I'll —

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

— Move the solar wind in.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Buzz, this is Houston. It's about time for you to start your EVA closeout activities.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Roger. That's in progress.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Neil and Buzz, this is Houston. We'd like to remind you of the closeup camera magazine before you start up the ladder, Buzz.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. Got that over with you, Neil?

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

No, the closeup camera's underneath the MESA. I'll have to pick it up with the prong. I'm picking up several pieces of really vesicular rock out here, now.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

You didn't get anything in those environmental samples, did you?

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Well, I don't think we'll have time.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger, Neil and Buzz. Let's press on with getting the closeup camera magazine and closing out of the sample return container. We're running a little low on time.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. Can you quickly stick this in my pocket, Neil, and I'll head on up the ladder?

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

I'll hold it. You open the packet up.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

… that'd kill us. Just hold it right there. Okay. Let the pocket go.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Anything more before I head on up, Bruce?

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Negative. Head on up the ladder, Buzz.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

How are you coming, Neil?

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Did you get that solar wind rolled up there, Buzz?

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Right. That's it right there.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Think you can reach the—reach this hook that's hanging over here? You might entertain the idea of sending up the second one that way.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Get the film off of that.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

I will. Get that up now.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. I'm heading on in.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

And I'll get the LEC all ready for the rock box.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Neil, this is Houston. Did the Hasselblad magazine go up on that sample return container also?

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

I've got the Hasselblad magazine hooked to the SRC now, yes.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

How are you doing, Buzz?

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

About ready to send up the LEC?

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. That's got it clear.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Oh. Uh—oh. The camera came off. I mean the film pack came off.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. Just ease it down now. Don't pull so hard on it. All right, let it go.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

While you're getting that, I've got to get the camera.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. This—This one's in. No problem.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Okay. Stand by a second.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Neil, this is Houston. Request an EMU check. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Roger. Got 3.8 and I got 54 on the O2 and no flags, and my flow is in N.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Neil and Buzz, for your information, your consumables remain in good shape. Out.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Roger, How's it coming, Neil?

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Okay. I've got one side hooked up to the second box and I've got the film pack on.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Boy, that bilge from on the LEC is kind of falling all over me while I'm doing this.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

That's what it looks like down here.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

I think my watch stopped, Neil.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

No, it didn't either. Second hand.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. If you can just kind of hold it, why, I think I can do the pulling.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Okay. Stand by a minute. Let me move back.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. Easy. All right, easy in the hatch now.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. I'll get it the rest of the way. And I'll give it to you to—No, wait, just a second. Yes, a little more.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

How about that—package out of your—brief. Get that?

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Okay. I'll get it when I get up there.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Neil, this is Houston. Did you get the Hasselblad magazine?

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Yes, I did. And we got about, I'd say, 20 pounds of carefully selected, if not documented, samples.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Houston. Roger. Well done. Out.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Just keep your head down close. Now start arching your back. That's good. Plenty of room. Now, all right, arch your back a little, your head up against *** Roll right just a little bit. Head down. … in good shape.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Thank you. Am I bumping now?

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

No, you're clear. You're rubbing up against me a little bit.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

*** All right. That's right. A bit to the left. Okay. Now move your foot, and I'll get the hatch.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. The hatch is closed and latched, and verified secure.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Okay. Now we turn the feedwater valve—CLOSED. And I got your PLSS antenna …

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. Feedwater valve's CLOSED.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

And your antenna's …

Okay. That's out. … I did my part … Okay.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

You're cutting out, Neil. You're not readable. I understand you said something about contingency sample container on the ascent engine?

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

We are not reading you, Neil. Buzz, Buzz, this is Houston. Do you read? Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Tranquility Base, this is Houston. We're reading neither one of you, but standing by.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Neil, this is Houston. Neil, this is Houston. Radio check. Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Buzz, Buzz, this is Houston. Radio check, radio check. Over.
