To my knowledge, he's also the first person to eat the moon, when he licked up some of the dust he tracked into the Apollo 16 Lunar Module while acting as commander. Well, the result was, a lot of additional time was used there. (Long Pause) 108:14:10 McCandless: We're reading you loud and clear, Buzz. (Chuckling) While I'm on the subject, I'll take a moment or two more and talk about the term "NASA scientist". 109:07:18 Armstrong: We're going to try it. [On the later missions, the quality of PLSS-relayed comm from the cabin was also erratic. 108:24:43 Armstrong: Yep. Astronaut Neil Armstrong emerged from the spacecraft first.

That's when it refreshed in my mind, years ago, that you had left yours inside and mine was the only one out on the surface. A Russian Soyuz launched on July 15, 1975, followed by the U.S. Apollo launch on the same day. [Aldrin, from the 1969 Technical Debrief - "The initial comm checkout on the audio panel and the various communications checks that we made in the FM mode all seemed to go quite well, until we started switching the PLSS modes. In the Open (horizontal) position, used in the cabin, all the incoming oxygen stream is divided between a duct leading to the helmet vent and a duct leading the vents in the torso. You would make small deviations just based on what seems appropriate at that time. George sold and donated some of the tapes, but he saved three of them after his father noticed they were labeled "APOLLO 11 EVA | July 20, 1969 REEL 1 [--3]" and "VR2000 525 Hi Band 15 ips." I remember that specifically at that time, because I reflected back on it a little later when I shipped my watch to the Smithsonian and it turned up missing. page 2-54 in volume 1 of the Apollo 14 EMU Operations Handbook, Section 4 from the Apollo 9 Mission report.

There's no doubt that the single most significant achievement on our flight was our descent to a foreign surface and the ascent to orbit to complete a rendezvous, join up, and come back. Now we should be able to stow these (LM water) hoses. 107:54:09 Armstrong: Roger. "], [Aldrin, from the 1969 Technical Debrief - "No matter how many times you run through an EVA Prep, to the best of the instructor's ability to put things in a logical sequence, when you're faced with doing these things, there is a natural tendency to deviate somewhat from the printed sequence that you have.

This and the fact that the Apollo Snoopy caps were dark-brown & white may explain why they were named "Snoopy" caps. 108:13:38 Armstrong: Yup. A real-time journey through last landing on the Moon. For example, our mission timer was out, and we decided we had better leave one wristwatch inside in case it (the one taken outside) got damaged. It's the big electrical cable from the RCU to the PLSS. The mechanism consists of an overcenter latch which locks on the lower rim, draws the two sides together, and holds them secure." They have finished with Neil's LEVA and Buzz has confirmed that Neil's helmet neckring is properly seated, aligned, and locked. ). And it was very good. For future missions, the male half of the connector has been replaced with one which has a coupling ring with a positive rotation position with the connector shell and can be grasped for firm alignment of the two halves. This is Houston. 108:46:43 Armstrong: Pretty well and complete. 108:30:53 Aldrin: All right. 108:08:30 Aldrin: Okay.

You are coming in loud and clear, and Mike passes on the word that he is receiving you and following your progress with interest. It's the big electrical cable from the RCU to the PLSS. I can hear you trying to transmit; however, your transmission is breaking up. In detail, Pete and Al had the hatch open 3 minutes after starting the final depressurization, where as Neil and Buzz took roughly 11 minutes. With both of them wearing PLSSs and their freedom of motion restricted, it is Neil who operates most of the ECS valves, reaching across with his right hand.] None of the later crews experienced a similar problem.] They had a 10x40 monocular manufactured by Leitz, Germany, and modified by NASA's Manned Spacecraft Center (MSC) Houston. 108:23:22 Aldrin: Verify Master Alarm.

[Each of the hose connectors has a ring lock and then, built into the ring, a "lock-lock" which prevents the ring from accidentally rotating open.] "], [Aldrin - "That jibes with what I remember: your electing not to take it out on the surface was because of (the mission timer). [During the 1991 mission review, I put the following question to Neil and Buzz and was so fascinated by Buzz's lengthy answer that I have included the entire exchange here. My window's cleared. Launch of Apollo 11, with dragon fly. It's a beautiful signal. After the Apollo 1 fire, Snoopy became the symbol of the revitalized NASA safety program.] We accepted the fact that, by being very careful with that connector, we could, in fact, connect and disconnect it satisfactorily. Each of them has a foot-long flat-wire antenna on the top of the backpack. I don't know if it was different from the trainers or the flight PLSSs at the time we were looking at them or not, but there was a press-to-test knob of some sort that neither of us could correctly identify as to function.

And I think our evidence of (the need for) energy management in the learning process for EVAs (during Gemini and into Apollo) speaks to that. So, obviously, we have to change our thinking about that and get behind that. Prior to that it was relatively quiet.

[Aldrin, from the 1969 Technical Debrief - "We had problems with this one particular electrical connector, the one that joins the RCU to the PLSS, ever since the first time we'd ever seen it. It is attributable to the fact that, when you do simulations of EVA Prep, you have a clean cockpit and you have all the things that you're going to use there in the cockpit and nothing else. At 0.25 psi of cabin pressure, opening the hatch took 78 pounds of force versus 118 pounds at 0.35 psi.
