Image of the S-IVB impact site at the moment of impact with a link to the LRO website and a science paper on the effect of the impact. Sweet!

Dr Chuck Berry orders a cup of coffee and comments that Flight Surgeon Hawkins looks like he needs an infusion of coffee to wake up

Apollo 13 Moments of Interest / 078:36:45 Very interesting SPAN discussion
« on: February 26, 2020, 11:16:05 AM »

Truly remarkable discussion where GNC talks with SPAN about temperature sensors inside Service Module showing a rise in temperature 'around the time the oxygen tank exploded' - little do they know that this turned out to be the hot gas leaking out of the tank before the final BOOM.


GNC loop talking about the telemetry from the time of the explosion

Apollo 13 Moments of Interest / SURGEON: Interesting CO2 discussion
« on: February 26, 2020, 11:10:45 AM »

Extremely interesting discussion from SURGEON and back room with what happens with CO2 exposure, including past studies made of people breathing up to 30 mmHg CO2. The docs think that Gemini crews were deliberately exposed to high CO2 in training to see how they'd react.


The CO2 study details are talked about, saying that people survived 30mmHg for five days with no ill effects! (Is the old THEY DIE AT 15!!! adage A LIE?)


SURGEON calling the female assistant/secretary "dear"


Dr Z(iegelsmichdt) on the Surgeon's phone line again, this time talking about whether its okay to drink the water from the PLSS (life support backpacks) and apparently it's okay but would 'taste like drinking from a garden hose', and they're also considering whether you can reclaim urine for drinking by using desalter tablets from the survival kit. "I don't think we have to go that far", they think. Another suggestion is trying to suck the water gun in case that gets some water out.
