Phase 3: To the Moon

Jim Lovell (CDR)

It's off. Engine off.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Houston. Copy. Engine off.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

13, Houston. We'll have you through Hawaii in 3 minutes.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Roger. Through Hawaii in 3 minutes.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Apollo 13, Houston through Hawaii. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

13 through Hawaii. How do you read?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

13, Houston. You're weak but clear; it will probably get better in a second. We're standing by for the burn report.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

13, Houston. The booster reports that everything looks good with the S-IV.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Sounds good, Houston. The ride was very nominal. We a little vibration, though, during most of the run.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. We copied your call on that, Jim.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay, Joe. the DSKY read 35560, plus 04445, plus 01769, and DELTA-VC was minus 3.0.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger. You can't ask for much better than that. How about the burn time? Did you notice?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. On my trusty watch, I had about 3-3/4 seconds long.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Roger, Houston; 13 here.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. We have the S-IVB maneuver to SEP attitude commencing at 2 plus 56 plus 37. Duration of the maneuver: 4 minutes. SEP time, 3 plus 06 plus 37. Over.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. If I heard those right, Joe, the S-IVB maneuver was 2 plus 56 plus 57. SEP time is 3 plus 06 plus 27.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Correction on the second; 2 plus 56 plus 37, and 3 plus 06 plus 37.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. 2 plus 56 plus 37, with the maneuver time and the SEP time, 3 plus 06 plus 27?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

That's plus 37, too. Exactly 10 minutes later, Fred.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

We see the booster doing all the right things, and FIDO says your trajectory looks good, and it looks like we'll stick with a pretty close to nominal midcourse, too. We'll have some numbers for you later.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. And we concur. The S-IVB is maneuvering at this time.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

And, Apollo 13, Houston. We'd like OMNI Alfa. Over.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

13, Houston. Now request OMNI Charlie.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

And, 13, we'll be doing a handover, now.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Apollo 13, Houston. You are GO for T&D.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay, Joe. Thank you.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

And, 13, Houston. Check your NOUN 17 for extraction pitch attitude. It should be 319 degrees. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. We'll look at it.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, Houston; 13. Do we have a GO for pyro arm?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

13, Houston. Affirmative. You're GO for pyro arm, and recommend you secure the cabin pressurization.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

We did. We closed the waste management vent valve, there. Or waste stowage valves —

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. We're reading 6 psi on the cabin, Jack.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Roger, Joe. Thank you very much.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Yes, that's quite a bang, Joe. We've separated, and we've pitched around about 60 degrees now.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger, Jack. We see you pitching.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. We got the SLA panels—one of them is out front now.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Got the S-IVB. I guess we're about 80 feet.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. I'm going to come on with the TV now, Joe.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Fred. We're waiting for it.
