Launch Control gives Apollo 13 their farewells.


Ground communications network has received a signal from the Aquarius!

Apollo 13 Moments of Interest / 041:05:10 Coffee Maker Isn't Working
« on: March 07, 2020, 05:29:17 pm »

Doctors are horrified that the coffee maker isn't working and the secretary wont' come in until 7 am...a long night with no coffee...and sounds like the headset isn't working properly either!


When you gotta go, you gotta go, even in Mission Control.


To alleviate the quiet night shift with the crew sleeping, the doctors are using Commander Lovell's heart trace to try to figure out if he's really sleeping or dreaming or doing something awake.


A few minutes later, the two interpret who's who on the cardiogram!


Flight Surgeon and the Biomed back room guy talk about  the crew heart rates and ECG traces for the starting sleep period.


Kerwin gets a phone call from a "Matt" who tells that there's a foil blanket in the Command Module post-landing survival kit the crew could use to keep warm. Despite this suggestion, the info was never passed on to the crew.


INCO is troublesolving the communications issue, and wants to call in more people to help.


Biomedical controllers appropriate guidance terminology to describe strange telemetry results.


Astronaut Tony England talks with Crew Systems Division, who are working to build the Lithium Hydroxide CO2 canister modification.


Unlike in the Apollo 13 movie, the surgeons are masters at interpreting the cardiogram.


Dr Hawkins and backroom personnel talk about the questionaire and wonder if they should also cover the maintenance personnel from Philco (the builders of the Mission Control equipment) but they don't want to "open that Pandora's box".
