Thanks for the heads up. Looking into it now.

Apollo 17 Moments of Interest / Re: Real-Time Seems to be 1 Day Ahead

It is until 9:55pm ET tonight when countdown begins. Whenever you visit the site on a day of the month that isn't in the mission range, it jumps you into a day that's within the mission range. We're outside the mission range until 9:55pm tonight.

I know it would be a ton more work (trust me) but the only way these could be used within the website is if each utterance is timestamped. If you create the transcript in this format, I could use it directly:

Code: [Select]
023:27:25|Kerwin|No problems.
023:28:07|Kerwin|And, 13, Houston. That's all the business I got right now. I have a little news plan of the day for you, if you feel like listening to that a little later on.
023:28:30|CDR|Just hold off there, Joe, until Fred's on his headset.
023:28:36|Kerwin|Stand by one, Jim. You're coming in garbled again.
023:29:58|CMP|Houston, 13.

I see that you also have what channel, or position they're in. For this you could add "position" so the format would be:
<when>|<position>|<who>|<what was said>

Yes! We're working on Apollo 16 now. It probably not going to be ready for the 50th anniversary, but we'll try.

I don't know how I missed this thread! Thanks for offering to make EECOM transcripts. If you would like to discuss further how they could be integrated into the website, please let me know.

Very sad news indeed. The Apollo 10 tapes are in the queue to be digitized. It will probably be several years before it's online, but it will happen some day.

On the biomed removal, they only had a few biomed sets, not enough for everyone to wear them at the same time and they took shifts. My guess is that Lovell saying "I don’t have BIOMED on" was because it wasn't his turn and they had gotten mixed up on the ground. I didn't take this as being an act of rebellion.

Similarly, a prank about sleeping in was played on someone during Apollo 11 countdown as well:
