This is a live special report from ABC Radio News. The flights of Apollo 12. I'm Mark Graham with Merrill Mother, I think Apollo News Center after Nazi, Conrad and Albene and about to take the plunge while Dick Gordon watchdogs aboard the Yankee Clipper orbiting 74 miles above the moon, Conrad and Bean are ready to fly their flimsy moon landing machine and trap it down to the ocean of storms. Everything is looking good, and intrepid is right now, about six minutes from its power descent burn in about 17 minutes from touchdown at Mission Control in Houston. There's standing room only here in our Apollo News Center, my colleague Merrill Miller, and apologize well of. And the commander, Pete Conrad, has just radio the ground that he has carried out the final money. Where to put Intrepid into its landing, Uh, orientation towards the moon, and they are waiting now for the formal go or no go for the final. A sense to the move. They are five miles north of there, a track for approaching their target on the moon, and they're a little high on the track. But the computerized automatic pilot has been set up the necessary information to correct this, and they're ready to go ahead as soon as Houston gives the formal goals. If they bother with a formal go, they've The pilots have been so far ahead of their flight plans, and I that Houston has, uh, almost eliminated the formality of things you have a go for. So and so And they will, uh, be doing this last 10 minutes of power to send to the moon in about, uh, well, a little over eight minutes. And now more. There have been only minor problems so far today on the mission. Albene has reported a stuffy head and doctors and Houston and prescribed that he take decongestants average about every eight hours, and they wanted to take one just before he makes his first moonwalk, he says. It's not going to bother. I'm not going to prohibit the moonwalk. Pete Conrad has a bit of a blister because of one of the biomedical sensors attached to his skin. Seems to have a sensitivity to it, the Conrad to insist that it's no real problem and no detriment to their moonwalk. And there were reports today of a solar storm but scientists insist that this will not present any radiation hazard. So everything is go for a man's second landing on the moon and you heard a switch open in there. Uh, you are hearing behind more than myself the live lines Director Cliff Charlesworth taking a final poll here for giving a go for PDI. Looks like it can go all the way around. PDI is the power descent initiation. This is the period of the descent during which they are literally flying themselves down to the moon with a profitable rocket engine, the only one in the world that we know of and they're all set. Now you just search Terry White, the public appearance officer on duty, say that they are cleared for their power to sent into the moon. During that they sent, uh, lunar module pilot Alan Bean will read out of the limb guidance computer Such numbers as range to go to the landing site or Donald philosophy and the angle at which Commander and Pete Conrad should look to spot the landing site through the landing point designator etched on the left hand window of an lunar module during the final phase from 500 ft down that I believe I just stick Gordon. I believe talking to Houston he says he has at 500 ft being will add in the, uh, so called H dot, or vertical philosophy rate of descent for this landing tonight. Very car is the communicator you will hear from Houston, talking to both spaceships as necessary. But most of the car Conrad acknowledging very car the communicators. Charlesworth, the flight director. Terry Whites, the public affairs officer on duty and with them, the now famous Steven Bails, who helps a the landing of Apollo 11 when it reached its critical point. Now this landing is going to be different from Apollo 11 in two phases. First, they're going to update the commute computers only two minutes from the surface of the moon. Or they're going to try to to correct out the air, as they have in tract after they make this rocket burn. And secondly, they are going to talk Conrad down into the final phase of this flight to the landing by warning them of the amounts of fuel he has left to a danger line and 20 seconds of fuel. If you ever hear that will be the danger line when he has to start changing plans and get out of there, but they'll count him down. That's a change in the operating procedures and Alan Bean or soft students there. And, of course, fully pressurized lunar module. The Intrepid is fully pressurized. They do have on their clothes. And how much about the soup are not pressurized and aboard the mothership, riding around without NASA administrator Mission Control in Houston. A long list of VIP there this morning, just as there were during the landing of Apollo 11 and the Apollo 11 moon men are there are gone to the vox mode and the communications that is voice actuated. Circuit one minute to, uh, start of this burn and we'll try to 35. They got a lot of vibration. A lot of action out of that decent engine. When it begins to burn is an extra voice communication on a radar tracking signal Relations copy. And she's like 15 seconds to the burns, and this is going to be the big one. 765 zero. You'll hear some noise and that 345 command override on the 26 OK is where they get maximum speed in reverse to slow down. At this point on their mark, Our mind, they are now and good. They're using 4500 and five miles an hour of breaking power. They are on their way down regulators. But that is, they said to buy for one minute had Okay, they're flying on their back. Be first. They're looking out into space. They will not see the move until they get to within about 7500 and 70,000. The computer is flying the interest almost nine minutes. Roger. Copies plus 04 two 00 21 69. Remember this breaking? That's an update on their computer. They are tracking them down the ground, too. Remember? They're trying for a pinpoint landing. This time they don't want to be just close. They want to be on the side. And they're trying to update to cancel out, agrees with things and cancel out a little bit of too much very good light track at the start of it. And they are five miles north or to the right, the automatic pilot. 30 seconds. 42 76 53 44,000 down there. I'm good. You're looking good. I have it right out. And 918. Minus 1000. Good. How's it look to you? It looks good. Recommend you incorporated. They will start getting late information any moment now from their landing right on back to my dorm. This place. Okay, They're landing radars. It's not giving them information for scheduled to take over manual control. About 500 12. 7.5 minutes down on the moon. Overall, it gives me everything. I didn't care about our CFO, but I dated May 23. Plus it really is. They've got five miles to cancel out of this track their five miles off when they started. So those at six. Plus two, too. They're cutting back now. The main engines model is only for this. Gave you a little ags update. Computer money in a moment. Okay, Okay. Standard bipolar throttle down 955 miles from where the Apollo 11. One second early horizon, but, uh, for seven minutes 21 53 about 50 7. 30 19,000 two. But I don't know where I am. You should see the ground and about 7500 and 37. 53. Not too bad. 2035 depending a little 60 seconds. 23 number four minutes and they're just about in position. You're looking good at eight. 64 out there. Outstanding. 42 degrees. I can't believe it. 42. 3500. Coming down in about 99 ft a second. You're looking good. About 15% of the land over one. I just want you to the right level. 43 Delta. Like I can't believe it. There at 2000 hours, boys on the ground do. Okay. 1800 30. 93. 94 seconds. Okay, I went up a little bit. 30 83 36 degrees, 1200. When they want to land where they want, they're right on target with two minutes 33 86. 33 to remember that. 35 530 4. 26. I got 400 60. 60. 66. Okay. 30 four. 11 100 Coming down. Five. 10%. 257 seats. Coming down at five. 2. 40 five around. Come on down 10% to three. Come on. Down in 96 nine, 30 3600 and 24. 20 six, 9%. 90 66 86 80 four. You're looking good. Real good. 60 50 46 coming down at three. Two. Okay, Class 42 47 92 31 32 36 20 two, 2014. Roger. Copy. Contact Landing. Hey, Standing okay to send red warning. Right. Don't worry about it. I got the 4. 13 about. Okay, Okay. I think we're in a place. You're the meal simulators on the moon safely. And both pilots out there surrounding the pinpoint landing. They should be within walking distance of the unmanned cameras, which they hope to walk during their trip there. In effect, they are beginning to turn off with this and can figure and stuff. But just stay on the moon for 32 hours. The first, however, is for 19 hours. What did you put her down to you over on? That's a joke. Beautiful. And we got the number one. Okay. Got you. Okay. Hey, man. The two pilots talking to each other and that navigational problems talking about just a moment ago certainly been updated computerized just before the sense starts and during the 001 five and all deposits. Okay, everything's ready to go level down to see what was underneath the wrong way. Kind of there Another one. They're making comparisons right there with 11 area. Okay, so that is a Houston gave. Say, I didn't get it. Let's let's get out of pocket. 300. It'll be four hours before they make their first moonwalk. Houston, this He's old and fine, and the venting is going along. Well, okay. I'll tell you what we're gonna send along here, so I'd appreciate it. Uh, you give me a holler down into the two days, we'll do update. They have quite a bit to do with the spaceship before they take a bite to eat. The flight plan calls a lot of the first to get out of their helmets and gloves so they can work faster. And he just repeats on right today. We're gonna hurry along, keep after you sent over. You've been calling the mothership still are. Roger. Dick, Can you get the high gain pointed at us? We'd like to dump that tape recorder. Okay. I'll let me get you coming up on the descent trip down to the month. And incidentally, he's almost overhead. Now, uh, did you copy that? Whole? Uh, that's affirmative. I'm sorry. Go ahead. Then. You can close your ox event at least a few. Open for a little while. The accident Close. I've been on the moon for 10 minutes. Engine 10 today. Of course. They're venting out that fuel system remaining in the sense of posting engines. And it's banking all. The only now is the SSN for posting systems. And it's controls. And they want to make sure that they're in a very safe status on those fuel tanks, which are in the bottom part of the Intrepid Moon Lander. In the meantime, of course, the two pilots on ahead and being exciting up their cabins, getting ready for Can we say lunch on the moon? Not yet. No. I thought that was enough that I forgot one of the press. Okay, they are in the sea of storms. They're not dirty and fourth humans to land on another planetary body to rather exuberant
