Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Houston, Apollo 11. I'd say that the secondary loop was actuated about 15 to 20 minutes ago. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. Copy. Columbia. Thank you very much.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. It looks like you guys are so speedy on us that we're thinking about moving up jettison time to about a GET of 130 plus 30, if that's okay with you all. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

That's fine. I've still got to get a P30 PAD from you.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. We want to talk to you about that. Mike, we can—for your druthers, we can do it either way. We can either let you do it in the jettison in P30—correction P47, or we can send you a P30 target load up and then you—let you call P41, whichever you want to do. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Yes, I see. Ron was going to give me a P30 PAD and the flight plan says P47. Out of the two, I prefer to go to P30, P41 route.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. Beautiful. We've got the load. If you'll give us P00 and ACCEPT, we'll send you a load up. Stand by.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. We'd like you to terminate direct O2 flow, and stand by on your P00 and ACCEPT. We'll have to generate a new load due to the moveup on time. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger, Mike. It looks like if we move up this jettison time and give you a new load, it would require a new attitude, and we can't do that due to the LM already closed out, and it would fight us all the way around and we'd lose COMM with it. We're thinking separating in P47 in about 10 minutes. We're looking at trajectories and we'll be right with you momentarily. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Okay. It's no big thing with me either way.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Hello, Columbia. Houston. We'd like you to start down your jettison checklist. We recommend picking up page F11—12 and we'd like to jettison at 10 minutes. That'll be 130 14 15. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. If that's not satisfactory, let us know. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Houston, Columbia. How about a GO for logic BUS ARM.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. You've got a GO.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. You can undock at your convenience, correction, jettison at your convenience. We would like you to jettison Eagle and stationkeep—in P47 and stationkeep, and we'll have another attitude and a maneuver for you so we'll be okay for TEI. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

And I'm standing by to go to P47 just as soon as you give me a go for PYRO ARM.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. I thought we gave you that. Mike, you're GO for PYRO ARM and you're GO for jettison.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Okay. Let her go in 10 seconds.

Michael Collins (CMP)

NOUN 83 reading minus four balls, minus three balls, 3 or—correction—minus—both register 1 and register 2 are reading minus four balls 3, register 3 is zeros, the EMS remained on 100.00. A fairly loud noise, and it appears to be departing—oh, I would guess several feet per second.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger, can you kind of stationkeep with it, Mike? Just stand by now.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. Don't try to chase it, just hold what you've got.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Charlie, did it hold cabin pressure this time?

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. I thrusted back—I thrusted back toward it a little bit, Charlie, and I'm now reading NOUN 83, plus four balls 4, minus four balls 8, and you want me to kill average D. Right?

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Stand by. That's affirmative. You can exit P47.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

There she goes. It was a good one.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger dodger. We got Eagle looking good. It's holding cabin pressure and it picked up about 2 feet per second from that jettison.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

I believe that. I can see some cracks on the outer coating around the tunnel. In the thermal protective covering, I don't think it has anything to do with the structure.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Hello, Columbia, Houston. We'll have an attitude and a little blip burn for you in about 130 30, so we can separate from Eagle. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. Would you start a maneuver to a pitch of 230 for this little tweak burn? Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger, Mike. And verify track mode in AUTO for the high gain.

Michael Collins (CMP)

We're in REACQ. Is that all right?

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Say again. We need AUTO.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Say again. We're in REACQ—AUTO REACQ.
