I guess that's what happens when you cut a lot out of a checklist.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Yes. Yes, we're taking about a thousand pictures in between steps there, too.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay, Houston; Aquarius, radio check.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Aquarius, Houston. Over.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Jim, you are GO for the burn. GO for the burn.

Roger. I understand. GO for the burn.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, 2 minutes and 40 seconds to go on the mark.
