Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

And, 11, Houston. For your information, Eagle, we had an ISS fail light came on at about 3 19 due to a CDU overheating; and at about this time at AOS it looks like we're about to lose the platform.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, Houston. We got the load in. You can have the computer —

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

11. Are you through with the computer?

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

That's affirmative, Buzz.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

All right. That's timing for you.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

And, Apollo 11, Houston. Your friendly White Team has your coming home information, if you're ready to copy. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Apollo 11. Ready to copy.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger, 11. Got two PADS for you, TEI 30 and then a TEI 31. TEI 30 SPS/G&N: 36691, minus 061, plus 066 135 23 4156. NOUN 81: 32—correction, plus 32011, plus 06818, minus 02650 181 054 014. Apogee is NA, perigee plus 00230 3286—correction, 32836; burn time 2 28 32628 24 1511 357. Next three lines are NA. NOUN 61: plus 1103, minus 17237 11806 36275 195 04 52. Set stars are Deneb and Vega, 242 172 012. We'd like ullage from two jets for 16 seconds, and the horizon is on the 10 degree line at TIG minus 2 minutes; and your sextant star is visible after 134 plus 50. Stand by on your readback. I have a TEI 31 if you're ready to copy. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Roger. TEI 30, SPS/G&N: 36691, minus 061, plus 066 135 23 4156, plus 32011, plus 06 818, minus 02650, 181 054 014; apogee NA, plus 00230 32836 228 32628 42 1511 357, NA three lines, plus 1103, minus 17237 11806 36275 195 04 52, Deneb and Vega, 242 172 012, two jet ullage, 16 seconds, horizon out of the window, 10 degrees, TIG minus 2 minutes, sextant star at 134 10. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger, Buzz. Good readback. You're very weak. If you're ready to copy, I got a TEI 31 for you. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, Houston. You were cut out. Say again.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

All right. Go ahead. I'm ready to copy.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger, 11. TEI 31, SPS/G&N: 36691, minus 061, plus 066 137 22 3985, plus 32838, plus 06845, minus 02487, NA, pitch 052. Rest of the PAD is NA. Ready for your readback. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Roger. TEI 31, SPS/G&N: 36691 minus 061, plus 066, 137 22 3985, plus 32838, plus 06845, minus 02487, NA, pitch 052. The rest is NA. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. Good readback. And, Buzz, did you say sextant star is visible after 134 50?

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

No. I wrote down 134 10. I wasn't real sure about that.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. It went by me there. RETRO caught it. It's 134 50. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. 134 50. Thank you.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Hello, Apollo 11. Houston. After the burn, we'd like you to trim X and Z. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. And that's to 0.2 foot per second, as shown in the flight plan.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Sounds like there's a story behind that one, too.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

We'll tell you when you get back.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Hello, Apollo 11. Houston. Would you verify that you've stirred up the CRYO's? Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Roger. We've stirred them up.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, Houston. You are GO for TEI. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Hello, Apollo 11. Houston. You've got about 8 minutes till LOS. Your AOS with the burn, 135 34 05, no burn 135 44. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, Houston. One minute to LOS. Go sic 'em.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Hello Apollo 11. Houston. How did it go? Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Time to open up the LRL doors, Charlie.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. We got you coming home. It's well stocked.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Okay, Burn status: DELTA-TIG was zero, burn time was 2 plus 30. PAD angles: DELTA VGX after trim was 0.1, VGY 0.9, VGZ 0.1. DELTA-VC minus 17.9, fuel 10.6, OX 10.4, unbalance minus 50.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. Copy, Neil. Sounds good to us.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

And Apollo 11, Houston. All your systems look real good to us. We'll keep you posted.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Hey, Charlie boy, looking good here. That was a beautiful burn. They don't come any finer.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, Houston. I wondered if you've compared your state vector accuracy with the one in the LM flights? Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Yes, sir, and it looked very nice. VERB 83 was plus 00070 and minus 00008.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

11, Houston. I was looking at your bank Bravo nitrogen tank. It didn't leak a bit—correction—didn't leak a bit this time. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Roger. Looked good here.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Chamber pressure was hanging in there around 100. The latter part, of the burn it started oscillating a little bit and got down a little bit below 100.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, Houston. Would you give us P00 in ACCEPT? We've got a REFSMMAT for you. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Hello, Apollo 11. Houston. We've got the load in. You can go back to BLOCK. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Your command module film seems to be working out pretty well, Charlie, the amount we carried. Looks like we carried just about what we needed.

Michael Collins (CMP)

We have one 16 millimeter roll on the ASA 1000 color interior film. We were thinking of shooting that during the entry, out window number 4 on a bracket, and you might get the camera guide sometime in the next couple of days and give us all the good settings for that.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Hello, Apollo 11. Houston. I wondered if during the TEI burn you utilized the oxidizer flow valve on the PUGS. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Yes, we did. Based on your very excellent briefing I was expecting the thing to continue desiring increase for the whole time, so we started out with it in INCREASE. I saw that we pretty quickly crossed the line and started falling about 6 or 7 percent behind, so I was still expecting it to move up, and then I went down to FULL DECREASE and brought it back down to a difference of 2 percent. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. Thank you very much, Buzz.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Two tenths of a percent, I'm sorry.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, Houston. You can go to PTC attitude and torque at your—and do the P52 and torque at your convenience. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Hey, we got to take some more pictures, Charlie. Is there any constraint, normally, in staying here for awhile?

Michael Collins (CMP)

How does that tracking look, or is it too early to tell?

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, Houston. FIDO's are looking at the data. It's too early to tell yet exactly. It's looking real good so far. We'll have you some answers shortly on trajectory. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Okay. What FIDO is that?

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

11, Houston. We have a DAP CSM update for you.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. CSM weight, Mike: 26370. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, Houston. We've taken your onboard vector and propagated it forward, and it's looking real good. We only got about 24 minutes of tracking now. Really too early to tell on the radar. Over.
