Thanks! I was listening to the Trench loops and wondering who that voice was.

That does surprise me! The book "Apollo: The Race To The Moon" implies that the MOCR has several direct lines to the major plants (McDonnell Douglas, North American, Grumman, etc.) with staffed engineers who will pick up around the clock. Perhaps those lines are closed or they're only available to the FOD personnel.


EECOM's ECS cries out that the "surge tank's gotta come on" because the manifold pressure is dropping down to 27 Psi, putting the crew in danger, followed up by EPS gravely warning Clint Burton that a battery should be put on main A due to the O2 tank pressure dropping. This occurs amidst a heated argument between FLIGHT, GUIDO, CONTROL, and TELMU about whether or not the crew should do a P52 to align the LEM with the CSM.

General Discussion / Apollo 13 TELMU audio loop blank?

The TELMU audio loop for Apollo 13 during the time of the crisis (e.g. at the beginning of Lunney's shift in the MOCR at the roughly 57-hour mark) seems to be totally blank. I find this a bit hard to believe since at this point TELMU is extremely active in making sure Aquarius gets powered up to support the crew. Is this an error, or was the TELMU audio loop actually blank at this point in the mission?

I have only up to this point ever heard the 5 or 6 hours of Apollo 13 mission control audio that was available on YouTube. I am thrilled that the entire mission control audio has now been pulled up with every single channel in the MOCR. Thank you guys so much for all the work you've done.

Though I also hope there is an archive in place in case the website ever goes down. I would hate for all of this exquisite data to be lost due to a website closure.
