Phase 3: 2nd Orbit

Canary CapCom

Molly Brown, Canary CAP COM.

Gus Grissom

It looks like it's something on the side. I don't know what it is.

Gus Grissom

Canaries, Molly. Go ahead.

Canary CapCom

Roger. We have systems GO on the ground.

Gus Grissom

Roger. We are GO in here. We are finishing our Alinement Check.

Canary CapCom

Roger. Understand, and Canaries transmitting a calibrate command.

John Young

Transmit my T/M cal.

Gus Grissom

Okay. It's coming.

Gus Grissom

What was the time we could see that booster?

John Young

Okay. Tell them we're sending them a T/M 2 cal.

Gus Grissom

A T/M 2 cal is coming.

John Young

I don't see where it says for us to do that, but I guess that's all right. I think we should have done it on the first pass.

John Young

One of these pills came off.

Canary CapCom

Molly Brown, Canary CAP COM.

Canary CapCom

Roger. After your burn your orbit is 85.6, 92.6.

Gus Grissom

Roger. 85.6, 92.6.

Canary CapCom

And I have a Two-Bravo time.

John Young

I thought they weren't going to give those times to us.

John Young

If either one of these things leaks, we can just close up shop.

Gus Grissom

Okay. What's the Two-Bravo time?

Canary CapCom

Roger. ΔV90. GMTRC 16 52 25. GETRC 02 28 35. Roll left 55.

Gus Grissom

Roger. Two-Bravo: 90 ΔV. 16 52 25 GMTRC. Elapsed time of 02 28 25. Roll left 55.

Canary CapCom

That's affirm.

Gus Grissom

Key moment The first corned beef sandwich in space: What is it?

John Young

Corn beef sandwich.

Gus Grissom

Where did that come from?

John Young

I brought it with me. Let's see how it tastes. Smells, doesn't it?

Gus Grissom

Yes, it's breaking up. I'm going to stick it in my pocket.

John Young

It was a thought, anyways.

John Young

Not a very good one.

Gus Grissom

Pretty good, though, if it would just hold together.

John Young

Want some chicken leg?

Gus Grissom

No, you can handle that.

Gus Grissom

What was the time of that booster again? What elevation?

John Young

02 08 52. 18° el.

John Young

2 hours, 8 minutes, 52 seconds. 18° el.

Gus Grissom

Above? They didn't give us the mileage, huh?

Gus Grissom

We're alined just about perfect. What do you think, looking out your window?

Gus Grissom

What else have we got to do? Scanners should be on secondary. Now we're going to yaw 180° here.

Gus Grissom

Hey, look out there. There's some land.

Gus Grissom

What time is it?

Gus Grissom

Must still be over Canaries.

Gus Grissom

You're a noisy eater.

Gus Grissom

What? What did you drop?

Gus Grissom

Look at 'em jumping around down there.

John Young

What elapsed is it now, Gus?

Gus Grissom

How do you like this going backwards? You can tell you're going backwards too, can't you?

John Young

That's not bad for applesauce.

Gus Grissom

I'll take a bite of applesauce, if you don't eat it all.

John Young

It's getting tough to squeeze out of there.

Gus Grissom

If we had some pork chops to go with it, we'd be all right.

Gus Grissom

Here it is back. What are you going to do with it now?

John Young

What, the applesauce?

John Young

I don't know, the tablet fell off. I'm not going to put the germicide tablet in, because I don't know where it is.

Gus Grissom

Let's see what my retrofire attitude looks like going backwards.

John Young

16° nose down is what it is.

Gus Grissom

Yep. I'll be there in a minute.

Gus Grissom

I'll tell you, man, you don't need anything to tell your yaw, do you?

John Young

No, I'll tell you, I need some of these missions where I can look out of the window. I haven't looked out of this window a second and a half. It's beautiful!

Gus Grissom

You know, if I lined up the yaw, I'd line it up right there. What does it look like to you?

John Young

Look's to me like you got it, Gus.

Gus Grissom

That's not what the 8-ball shows. It's right there, no doubt about it.

John Young

Well, that looks good to me.

Gus Grissom

Let's try it upside down once.

John Young

Watch everything float to the ceiling.

Gus Grissom

There's 60 left, okay?

John Young

That's 60 left.

Gus Grissom

No. Well, yes, let's see.

Gus Grissom

That's inverted.

Gus Grissom

There's 60 left.

John Young

That's what I figured.

John Young

Isn't that beautiful?

Gus Grissom

That's 60 left right there. That's hard to fly.

Gus Grissom

The sun is sure bright.

Gus Grissom

We can't see the booster. Have to be turned around for this check. We can't see it. We're facing the wrong way.
