Gus Grissom

How much time to go?

Roger Chaffee (CapCom)

Molly Brown, how are your attitudes holding?

John Young

44 seconds to go.

John Young

I think I'd do it on the IVI's.

Gus Grissom

They sure blurp a lot, don't they? That may be attitude control thrusters though. Probably what it is.

John Young

Coming up on—coming up on a minute.

John Young

A minute, five.

Gus Grissom

What did we do? Burn down an—give me a mark.

John Young

Okay. 4—3—2—1 -

John Young

MARK!

Gus Grissom

Thrusting complete.

Roger Chaffee (CapCom)

Roger. Confirmed maneuver complete.

John Young

That burn was 1 minute and 14 seconds by our watches.

Gus Grissom

And when we started out, the IVI's were reading 51 ft/sec, and I burned them down to 2 ft/sec aft.

Gus Grissom

As we started to burn my IVI's read 51 ft/sec, and we burned them down to the place where they read 2 ft/sec.

Roger Chaffee (CapCom)

Say again that last number.

Gus Grissom

Two. Zero, zero, two.

John Young

What have you got on your propellant, Gus?

Gus Grissom

Propellant quantity is 65 percent.

John Young

Hey, we're in good shape.

Gordon Cooper (CapCom)

Roger. Do you want to get your transmitter up to start your tape dump?

John Young

Yes, it's on. The transmitter is now DELAYED-TIME.

Gordon Cooper (CapCom)

Ready for your tape dump?

John Young

Understand. Going tape playback CONTINUOUS.

John Young

Tape playback is on CONTINUOUS.

Gordon Cooper (CapCom)

Okay, Molly Brown. Looks like your OAMS has leveled out before your burn. Can you give us an OAMS source pressure and temp again now?

John Young

Roger. Source pressure is 2050, temperature is 56.

John Young

Oh, that record switch!

John Young

This source pressure is 2050. Source temperature is 56.

Gordon Cooper (CapCom)

Roger. it looks like that pressure switch on that O2 is failed. You probably better bring that O2 heater from AUTOMATIC to OFF, and then manually control the temp from then on—the pressure from then on.

John Young

If I go into High Rate you can break it off the peg. Over.

Gordon Cooper (CapCom)

Okay, you can bring it off the peg by going to High Rate. Is that affirm?

Gordon Cooper (CapCom)

Okay. I have a time for you, where you will be nearest to the booster. Would you like to have that so you can look for it?

Gordon Cooper (CapCom)

Roger. 02 + 08 + 52. Will be dead ahead at an elevation of plus 80° at 190 miles. This will be just prior to darkness. It should be very bright. Proceed to see if you can rendezvous.

Gus Grissom

Roger, DCS load received.

Gordon Cooper (CapCom)

Roger. We got you loaded.

John Young

We had another DCS load just in, too.

Gordon Cooper (CapCom)

Roger. That was the actual values. The first one was the TR.

Gordon Cooper (CapCom)

Molly Brown, Cape CAP COM. Did you get your experiments for the first orbit?

Gus Grissom

Go ahead Cape CAP COM.

Gordon Cooper (CapCom)

Roger. We just wanted to get a confirmation that you got your experiments on time for the first orbit.

Gus Grissom

Roger. We got them on time for the first orbit.

Gordon Cooper (CapCom)

Everything looks good down here.

Gordon Cooper (CapCom)

Molly Brown, Cape CAP COM. Our memory loads on the ground confirm your loads were correct in there, so you might delete all the MDIU readouts.

John Young

Here is the blood pressure coming down there, MCC.

Gordon Cooper (CapCom)

You still got a blood pressure, John? We didn't read it.

Gus Grissom

He sent it, okay. I'll give you another one.

Gordon Cooper (CapCom)

Okay. Just wondered if he was breathing.

Gus Grissom

Gordo, do you have me a time for the Horizon Scan Check?

Gus Grissom

Cape CAP COM, do you read, Molly Brown.

Gus Grissom

Do you have me a time for the Horizon Scanner Check?

Gordon Cooper (CapCom)

Okay, sunset time is 16 + 34. Stand by, and I will get you the horizon scanner.

Gordon Cooper (CapCom)

That is the time for it, Molly Brown. 16 + 34.

Gordon Cooper (CapCom)

Pretty spectacular up there, huh?

Gordon Cooper (CapCom)

Pretty spectacular up there, huh?

Gus Grissom

Yeah, it really is. It really is!

Gus Grissom

We didn't get to see much of the States though.

Gordon Cooper (CapCom)

Clouded over? Too many clouds, huh?

Gus Grissom

Let's see, do you want your meal?

Gus Grissom

Is this one all right?

John Young

Yes, this is the one here.

John Young

You can't get the bulb in, huh? How about if I just leave it in and give them blood pressures.

Gus Grissom

I can't get it in.

John Young

Hot dog! Good old food.

Gus Grissom

Going to have to make Alinement Check.

John Young

Want to just slap those babies over there?

John Young

They said to leave the brownies closed.

Gus Grissom

Okay, starting Alinement Caging Check. Minus 10° in pitch, 10° in yaw, and 10° in roll. Going to CAGE, small-end-forward, holding attitudes out the window. Okay, I've caged. Going SEF, platform and attitude. Fine aline from 1:45 to 1:55.

Gus Grissom

Let me have some of that juice when you get done.
