-23:41:34 First indication mission is go with Swigert

Word is leaking out that the mission is going to proceed with Jack Swigert replacing Ken Mattingly.

And then it's official:

RETRO didn't think that was going to happen:

He's not the only one:

LM GNC finds out, leading to discussion (half joking) as to whether the delay to allow Mattingly to be cleared would have cost $800,000 or $8 billion.

All really good finds - very interesting to hear the controllers' viewpoint on this! It's also interesting to me that so many people were on console nearly 24 hours before the launch.

In case it's of interest to anyone, RETRO is the second speaker in the exchange linked above (ie not the person who says "I never would have guessed"), and it's Chuck Deiterich.
