If cat litter was a good lunar simulant, NASA would be all over using it!

This is really interesting! I was thinking it sounded like Joe Kerwin and his wife Shirley Ann but I don't think the accent is right for it to be Joe.


Another conversation that refers to the impact (several days before)


Closing Reac values on a fuel cell. This was the scene in Apollo 13 where they "lost the moon".

Hi everyone. Yes, unfortunately that track was not digitized on the original playback. We plan to run the tape through one more time in order to capture it properly this time.

As for the audio being mixed up at various parts of the mission, yes, you're not going crazy, this is happening. We believe the old tape machine isn't properly tracking the tape, causing it to wander across channels. There is a pending fix for this but again, will take time. The best thing to do right now is to check the adjacent channels if you think you're hearing the wrong channel.

Thanks very much! It was Noah Petro's idea to sync it up somehow and the video window seemed the obvious choice. Sadly, we don't have any of the original mission telemetry anymore. The tapes were recycled a long time ago.

Apologies that you find it difficult to read. It's a similar color scheme to the website. Do you find that easier to read?

Unfortunately that is not possible. This is designed to be an online project and only works when running on the web.

Thanks for the first Apollo 11 post!
