Apollo 13 Moments of Interest / Re: Apollo 13 Film vs Reality

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:

Clicking on the timeline is the only way to skip at this point.

His voice sounds like it could be Ed Mitchell. Mitchell was married to Louise Randall from 1951 to 1972.

This is interesting because Gerry Griffin and Ed Fendell tell the story about being at that softball game and seeing people walking towards them across the field and getting that sinking feeling that something is wrong.

No news at all. JSC has been in lockdown for 9 months. Even if there was funding, digitization wouldn't be happening--and there's still no word on funding.

Hi Dan,
The only time the site "now" time really matters is during the mission anniversaries. Any other time of year it's more about jumping into a random point in a mission using the current clock. I hope this helps.

That parameter is generated by the website when you use the share button while the mission control audio is up. When you open the link it will open the audio channel that was selected when the link was generated.

In the comments at this moment, Jack expresses some of the problems with replanning.

Ignored Houston to get a rover sample:

No wonder I couldn't remember this discussion, the audio hasn't been digitized yet!

They also revised their destination for Station 1, but I've never been able to find any references to when that change was made. It's my understanding that the change was made because of how long it took to setup the ALSEP (but again, I don't hear anyone talking about how later they are). We don't have the 30-track tapes for 17, so we're missing all the behind the scenes discussion.

The same goes for the deletion of Station 10. Jack double checks that they're not going to Station 10 at all once they depart Station 9 and it's a short "no, not at all" on the radio with nothing more said.

Might be the wrong link. It's an interesting conversation but I don't hear anything about cake.
