Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. Here's the big story. Your attitude really looks quite good except in roll, and we'd like you to do the following. In MIN impulse PGNS, we'd like you to trim to zero pitch, which is about where you are now; to 008 degrees in roll, which is about 16 degrees from your present roll attitude; and to zero degrees in yaw, which is about where you are now. Then we'd like you to do the body-axis aline 400 plus 5, 400 plus 0. PITCH and ROLL to PULSE, select AGS, do the burn in AGS. How does that sound? Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. I'm rolled the wrong way; that is what you're saying, right?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

And you know I can't roll in minimum impulse. I've got to use TTCAs.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

That's right, Jim. Sorry.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

And you don't want me to automatically trim 5018, I take it.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

That's affirm, Jim. Don't trim 5018.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

We just want you to cycle on through P41 to get the average g and burn it out.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Just for your information, we see 3.0 in register 1. We read you up 3.1 on the pad. The actual DELTA-V was 3.05, and they warned me that it might come out 3.0.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. That's a little burn.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Your attitude looks real good. We will give you a mark at 10 minutes to the burn, which is in 28 seconds.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. We'll burn it in AGS and use the AGS ball.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Right. I was looking at the wrong clock, and we're a little under 10 minutes now. I'll give you a mark at 9 minutes. Okay?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. We have 10 seconds until 9 minutes to the burn. 3, 2, 1 -

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Very well. That agrees with our event timer.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay, Houston. About 3 minutes to go, and we're all squared away.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

And, Aquarius; Houston. Roger that. And we're standing by for your body-axis aline and your zeroing 404, 405, 406, going to 470.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. You'd asked—you'd asked me before, Joe, to go 400 plus 3, which I did. I assume you've changed the script again.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Fred. We did tell you to do that awhile ago, and it doesn't matter; you're looking good.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Yes. It looks like we had a minus 0.2 bias at 470. We're burning.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

We're tweaking now, Joe.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger. Aquarius, Houston. You're good right where you are.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. If you're happy, can we maneuver to service module SEP attitude now?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

That's affirmative, Aquarius.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

And I'm pitching up to the proper attitude.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. We're looking at it.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

And it's again necessary to use the TTCA to pitch.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. Recommend you terminate P41.

Deke Slayton

Hey, Jim, have you broken into the medical kit per my recommendation a few hours ago?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Yes. Everything is taken care of Deke.

Deke Slayton

Okay, fine. You might hit it again in about 2 hours.
