Apollo 13 CD2
Okay, we're ready for C.S.M. separation.
Okay, S.M.R.C.S. isol valves are all gray.
Okay, Swigert, command module pilot...
she's all yours.
Houston, we've got a good separation.
- The S-4B is stable. - Translation looks good.
- We confirm that, Thirteen. - We're gonna start to pitch around...
to line up with the LEM.
You know, Freddo, Frank Borman...
was upchuckin' most of the way to the moon on Apollo 8.
l'm all right. l just ate too much breakfast. Let's go to work.
And pitching up.
Pitch rate, 2.5 degrees per second.
Roger, Jack. We see you pitching around.
Keep an eye on that telemetry.
Roger that. lf Swigert can't dock this thing, we don't have a mission.
- How's the alignment? - G.D.C. align.
One hundred feet.
Watch the alignment, now.
Ah, don't worry, guys.
l'm on top of it.
FlDO, let me know when you're ready.
Okay, let's uplink that.
- How we lookin'? - We're not there yet. Forty feet.
Come on, rookie, park that thing.
- Capture. - That's it.
- Talk back is barber pole. - Go ahead and retract.
Houston, we have hard dock.
Roger, understand. That's a good deal, Jack.
Let's start back up with procedure 17.
Okay, Houston, we have LEM extraction.
We copy that, Thirteen.
Now you're off to the Fra Mauro highlands.
- l gotta get out of this suit. - Houston, we are ready...
for the beginning of the P.T.C....
and l think once we're in that barbecue roll, uh, Jack and l will eat.
- Hey, l'm hungry. - Are you sure?
l could eat the ass out of a dead rhinoceros.
- We got a smooth one, huh? - By the numbers so far.
We just ran a minimum load test on the cooling system. Let me clean this up.
- See you tomorrow. - Take care.
lt's too bad we can't demonstrate this on TV.
What a shame.
Okay. Overboard dump comin' up.
Here it comes...
the constellation Urion.
Now, that's a beautiful sight.
Barbara. Barbara, we are going to your father's broadcast.
No! l'm never coming out!
l hate Paul! No one else can ever play their records again!
She's still going on about the stupid Beatles breaking up?
- They're not stupid! You're stupid! - Barbara!
l know you're in mourning.
l'm not going, Mom! Dad won't know if we're there!
The whole world is going to be watching this broadcast, and so are we.
Excuse me while l--
Okay, uh, good evening, America...
and welcome aboard Apollo 13.
l'm Jim Lovell, and we're broadcasting to you tonight...
from an altitude of almost 200,000 miles...
away from the face of the earth...
and we have a pretty good show in store for you tonight.
We are going to show you just what...
-Susan. Barbara. -our life is like for the three of us...
- in the vast expanse of outer space. - Double!
One of the first things we'd like to do...
is provide you with the appropriate background music.
So, uh, hit it there, Freddo.
That, uh, was supposed to be the theme to 2001...
in honor of our command module Odyssey...
but there seems to have been a change in the program.
When l go up on 19, l'm gonna take my entire collection of Johnny Cash along.
- Hey, Marilyn. - Where's their broadcast?
All the networks dumped us.
One of them said we made goin' to the moon...
as exciting as a trip to Pittsburgh.
My son's supposed to be on.
He's in outer space.
This is all the channels we get, Mrs. Lovell.
lt's that damn TV Guide again.
Savage baggage masters--
Do they know they're not on the air?
We'll tell them when they get back.
Don't put your faith in love, my boy
My father said to me
Uh, well, if anyone from the, uh, l.R.S. is watching...
l forgot to file my 1040 return.
l meant to do it today, but, uh--
That's no joke. They'll jump on him.
Well, folks, let's head on down to the lunar excursion module.
Now, when we get ready to land on the moon...
Fred Haise and l will float through this access tunnel...
into the lunar module, leaving--
EECOM, that stir's gonna be...
on both H2 and both O2 tanks, is that correct?
...the spacecraft will remain connected.
Well, folks, as you can probably tell...
the Aquarius isn't much bigger than a couple of telephone booths.
The skin of the LEM in some places...
is only as...
as thick as a couple of layers...
of tinfoil, and that's all that protects us from the vacuum of space.
We get away with this because the LEM is designed only for flight in outer space.
Fred Haise, Renaissance man.
Okay, we'll head back up the tunnel now and back into the Odyssey.
All right, we've returned to the--
Stand by one, Houston.
Houston, that bang you heard was Fred Haise on the cabin repress valve.
He gets our hearts goin' every time with that one.
Okay, we're, uh, about to close out the Aquarius...
and, uh, return to the Odyssey.
Our next broadcast will be from Fra Mauro on the surface of the moon.
So, uh, this is the crew of the Apollo 13...
wishing everyone back on Earth a...
a pleasant evening.
Daddy was funny.
They might air a few minutes of it on the news tonight.
You'd think so.
- Bye. - Bye.
Well, between Jack's back taxes and the Fred Haise Show...
l'd say that was a pretty successful broadcast.
- That was an excellent show. - Thank you very much, Houston.
We've got a couple of housekeeping procedures.
We'd like you to roll right to 0-6-0 and null your rates.
Roger that. Rolling right, 0-6-0.
And then if you could give your oxygen tanks a stir.
Hey, we've got a problem here.
- What did you do? - Nothing. l stirred the tanks.
- Whoa! - Hey!
Uh, this is Houston. Say again please.
Houston, we have a problem. We have a main bus B undervolt.
- We've got a lot of thruster activity here. - What's with the computer now?
lt just went off line. There's another master alarm.
- l'm checking the quad. - That was no repress valve.
- Maybe it's in quad C. l'm gonna reconfigure the R.C.S. - We've got a computer restart.
- We've got a ping light. - The way these are firing doesn't make sense.
We've got multiple caution and warning, Houston. We've got to reset and restart.
l'm going to S.C.S.
Jesus. Flight, their heart rates are skyrocketing.
- EECOM, what's your data telling you? - O2 tank two not reading at all.
Tank one is at 725 psi and falling.
Fuel cells one and three are, uh--
Oh, boy, what's going on here? Flight, let me get back to you.
Flight, GNC. They're all over the place.
- They keep yawing close to gimbal lock. - l keep losing radio signal.
Flight, their antennae must be flipped around.
They're gonna have to do it manually if they do it at all.
One at a time, people.
ls this an instrumentation problem or are we looking at real power loss?
lt's reading a quadruple failure. That can't happen.
lt's got to be instrumentation.
Let's get the hatch buttoned. The LEM might have been hit by a meteor.
The tunnel's really torquin' with all this movement.
Houston, we had a pretty large bang there associated with a master alarm.
Shit, it's main bus A.
- Main bus A undervolt? - Main bus A undervolt down to--
lt's reading 25 and a half. Main bus B is reading zip now.
We got a wicked shimmy up here.
These guys are talking about bangs and shimmies.
Doesn't sound like instrumentation.
- You are breaking up, 13. - Can't get this hatch to seal.
Just stow it. lf we'd been hit by a meteor, we'd be dead by now.
l'm gonna try to get us out of this lurch.
Houston, did you say switch to omni Bravo?
- Roger that, Thirteen. - The signal strength went way down.
lt's fighting me. What's the story? We keep flirting with gimbal lock.
We need a confirmation. What systems do you have down?
- l'm having a hard time, Rick. - S.M.R.C.S. Helium one.
- Did you say switch to omni Charlie? - A and C are barber pole.
Houston, l'm switching over quad C to main A.
Roger that, Thirteen.
Okay, Houston, fuel cell one, fuel cell three.
We got a main bus B undervolt, cryo pressure, suit compressor.
What don't we have? A.C. bus one, A.C. bus two...
command module computer and O2 flow high.
l don't know. Maybe this is a caution and warning failure.
Houston, we are venting something out into space.
l can see it outside of window one right now.
lt's definitely, uh... a gas of some sort.
lt's got to be the oxygen.
Roger, Odyssey. We copy your venting.
- Give me an alignment. - Let's think about the kind of things we can connect.
- Let's start back at the beginning. - Anything look abnormal?
Okay, listen up. Quiet down, people.
Quiet down. Quiet down. Let's stay cool, people.
Procedures, l need another computer up in the R.T.C.C.
l want everybody to alert your support teams.
Wake up anybody you need and get them in here.
Let's work the problem, people.
Let's not make things worse by guessin'.
13, this is Houston. We are going around the room. We're gonna get you answers.
We keep venting, we're gonna keep hitting the edge of that deadband.
Take a look at the O2 on number one.
200 pounds and falling.
O2 tank two still zero.
- Tank one: 218 psi and falling. - ls that what you're gettin'? Confirm.
- We're seeing the same, 13. - Can we review our status, Sy?
Let's look at this thing from a standpoint of status.
What have we got on the spacecraft that's good?
l'll get back to you, Gene.
We're not gonna have power much longer.
The ship's bleedin' to death.
- Flight? - Yeah. Go, EECOM.
Um, Flight, l recommend we shut down the reactant valves of the fuel cells.
What the hell good is that gonna do?
lf that's where the leak is, we can isolate it.
We can isolate it there, save what's left in the tanks, and we can run on the good cell.
You close 'em, you can't open 'em again.
You can't land on the moon with one healthy fuel cell.
Gene, the Odyssey is dying.
From my chair here, this is the last option.
Yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah, okay, Sy.
CAPCOM, let's have them close the reactant valves.
Thirteen, this is Houston.
We want you to close react valves on cells one and three. Do you copy?
Are you saying you want the whole smash?
Closing down the react valves for fuel cells shut down?
Shutting down the fuel cells? Did l hear you right?
Yeah, they heard me right.
Tell them we think that's the only way they can stop the leak.
Yeah, Jim. We think that closing the react valves may stop the leak.
- Did he copy that? - Do you copy, Jim?
Yes, Houston, we copy.
We just lost the moon.
Okay, Freddo, shut those down.
Let's see what this does.
lf this doesn't work...
we're not gonna have enough power left to get home.
- Shit! - Goddamn it!
Uh, Houston, O2 on one is still falling.
Freddo, how long does it take to power up the LEM?
Three hours by the checklist.
We don't have that much time.
Okay, now, Jack, before the batteries completely die on us in here...
let's power down everything so we can save as much as we can for reentry.
Fifteen minutes of oxygen and that's it. The command module will be dead.
Okay. Okay, guys, listen up. Here's the drill.
We're moving the astronauts over to the LEM.
We've got to get some oxygen up there.
TELMU, Control, l want emergency power procedure essential hardware only.
GNC, EECOM, we're gonna be shutting down the command module at the same time.
We'll have to transfer the guidance system from one computer to the other...
so l want those numbers up and ready when our guys are in position.
We've gotta transfer all control data over the LEM computer...
before the command module dies.
The lunar module just became a lifeboat.
Odyssey, this is Houston. We need you to power down immediately.
You're gonna have to power up the LEM at the same time, so you better get somebody over there.
We already have Freddo in the LEM, Houston.
We've got serious time pressure.
You've got to get the guidance program transferred...
and you've got to do it before you're out of power in the command module...
or you're not gonna be able to navigate up there.
How much time? Can you give me a number?
Well, we're looking at less than 15 minutes of life support in the Odyssey.
We've got 15 minutes, Freddo. lt's worse than l thought.
Houston, be aware l've moved from the command module into the LEM.
lf Jack can't get that guidance computer data transferred before they go dead--
- They won't even know which way they're pointed. - That's right.
- That's a bad way to fly. - l'll be in 210 if you need me.
Houston, this is Thirteen. Are you back with me now?
Aquarius, this is Houston. You now have about 12 minutes to power up.
l can't see any stars. Man, there's a lot of debris floatin' around out there.
Okay, Houston, l have completed the steps on page 15.
Now l'm ready to power down the computer.
l'm gonna need your gimbal angles, Jack...
- before you shut down the computer! - Okay, Jim.
l need this back to me before they power down.
All right, all right. l got it. Hold on.
- Houston, our computer is up. - Roger. Stand by.
Jack, we need to proceed with steps 12 through 17 quickly.
You're down to about eight minutes remaining.
Fuel cell pump's off. O2 fans, tank two off.
Okay, Houston, check me. l have completed these gimbal conversions...
but l need a double check of the arithmetic.
- Yeah, you can go, Jim. - The roll CAL angle is minus two.
Lunar module roll is 355.57.
Pitch: 1678-- Correction. Pitch: 167.78.
- Yaw is 351.87. - Stand by. We're checking it.
We've got negative visibility in our star field...
and if this paperwork isn't right, who knows where we'll end up out here?
Looks good, Flight.
- lt's all right. - Good here.
- He's good, Andy. - We'll go on those numbers.
- You're good. - Log them in, Freddo.
Jack, turn off the l.M.U. Switch to S.C.S.
Stand by to turn off the thrusters. Over.
lt's a great day in New York. lt's girl watchers' weather.
l like those ingenious girl watchers who put on Con Edison helmets...
and dig trenches in the street to get a better view.
But l-- Hey, speaking of girl watching...
did you know that our first bachelor astronaut is on his way to the moon?
ls it Swigert? Yeah, first bachelor.
He's the kind, they say, has a girl in every port. He has that reputation.
He's sort of foolishly optimistic, taking nylons, Hershey bars to the moon.
Did you read that three million--
What do you say? Less viewers or fewer viewers?
Three million fewer viewers, uh, watched the space shot than did the last one.
Uh, l-- Colonel Borman is h--
An ABC New--
Here is ABC science editor Jules Bergman.
The Apollo 13 spacecraft has lost all electrical power...
and astronauts Jim Lovell, Fred Haise and Jack Swigert...
are making their way through the tunnel to the lunar module...
using it as a lifeboat...
so they'll have electrical power for their radios on the command module.
Apollo 13 is apparently also losing breathing oxygen--
Slow down. An electrical failure. What exactly does that mean?
The emergency has ruled out any chance of a lunar landing...
and could endanger the lives of the astronauts themselves...
if the LEM oxygen supply, plus whatever is left of the command module's oxygen...
can't last them until they can get back to Earth.
What do you mean there's no immediate danger?
l just heard they're losing oxygen. Can they get back?
The LEM's descent rocket engine will be used in aborting the mission...
and getting the astronauts safely back to Earth.
Recapping what has happened: The Apollo 13 astronauts may be in grave danger.
No, don't give me that NASA bullshit!
l want to know what's happening with my husband!
We want to switch control to the Aquarius now.
- Roger that. - Houston, wait!
You're down to about five minutes now, Jack.
Be aware our R.C.S. isn't up here yet. We have no attitude control on Aquarius.
They don't have control? Did we miss a step here?
- Control, what the hell happened? - What? l don't know.
We're out of whack. l'm trying to pitch down, but we're yawing to the left.
Why can't l null this out?
She wasn't designed to fly attached like this.
lt's like flying with a dead elephant on our back.
Flight, Guidance. We're getting awfully close to center here.
Watch that middle gimbal. We don't want you tumbling off into space.
Freddo, inform Houston l'm well aware of the goddamn gimbals!
Roger that, Houston.
l don't need to hear the obvious.
- l've got the frappin' eight-ball in front of me! - Andy, we're on VOX.
Aquarius, this is Houston. We've got you both on VOX.
You want what? You want us to go to VOX?
You have a hot mike. We are reading everything you say.
lt's only by a very narrow margin...
that we're going to get Lovell, Haise and Swigert back alive.
l'm sorry. Jeffrey's calling for you.
...the terseness of Kraft and the grim lines of Jim McDivitt.
This has been a very close call. We're not out of the woods yet.
Why are so many people here?
Oh, well, you know... your dad's flying his mission.
He said he was going to get me a moon rock.
something broke on your daddy's spaceship...
and he's gonna have to turn around before he even gets to the moon.
Was it the door?
Thirteen, Houston. We still show that venting pushing you around.
- How you doing? - Houston, Aquarius.
We've had to learn how to fly all over again, but we are doing better now.
- Uh, roger that, Aquarius. - Have him close it out.
Jack, we can close out your procedure now.
Do we know for sure that we can power this thing back up?
lt's gonna get awfully cold in here.
Copy that, Jack. We'll just have to deal with that later.
- Computer off. - We're clear.
We're going to the LEM.
We confirm shutdown, Jack. Lunar module now in control.
Roger that, Houston. This is Odyssey signing off.
Freddo, we're gonna have to execute some sort of burn.
lt's just a matter of when.
- Did they shut us all down in there? - Yeah.
Didn't think we'd be back in here so soon.
Houston, how far off course do you project we are?
Okay, people, listen up!
Gentlemen, l want you all to forget the flight plan.
From this moment on, we are improvising a new mission.
Sorry about that.
- We'll get somebody to look at that. - Find a bulb around here.
How do we get our people home?
They are here.
- Do we turn 'em around, straight back, direct abort? - Yes!
- Gene-- - l can't guarantee the burn yet.
No, sir, no, sir, no, sir!
We get them on a free-return trajectory.
lt's the option with the fewest question marks for safety.
l agree with Jerry. We use the moon's gravity to slingshot them around.
- The LEM will not support three guys for that amount of time. - lt barely holds two.
We've got to do a direct abort. We do an about-face, bring the guys right home.
Get 'em back soon. Absolutely.
We don't even know if the Odyssey's engine's working.
lf there's been serious damage to this spacecraft--
They blow up and they die!
- That is not the argument! We are talking about time! - Jesus! Come on!
l'm not gonna sugarcoat this for you!
Okay, hold it. Let's hold it down.
Let's hold it down. The only engine with enough power for a direct abort...
is the S.P.S. on the service module.
From what Lovell has told us, it could have been damaged in an explosion...
so let's consider that engine dead.
We light that thing up, could blow the whole works.
lt's just too risky. We're not gonna take that chance.
About the only thing the command module is good for is reentry.
That leaves us with the LEM, which means free-return trajectory.
Once we get the guys around the moon...
we'll fire up the LEM engine, make a long burn...
pick up some speed and get 'em home as quick as we can.
Gene, l'm wondering what the Grumman guys think about this.
We can't make any guarantees. We designed the LEM to land on the moon...
not fire the engine out there for course corrections.
Well, unfortunately, we're not landing on the moon, are we?
l don't care what anything was designed to do. l care about what it can do.
Let's get to work. Let's lay it out, okay?
CAPCOM. Flight, he says it will be ready in time.
After this burn, we've got to build some time in the flight plan for sleep.
- Run it by the F.A.O. - l've run it by the F.A.O.
Do we know how long we're gonna fire that burn?
- He specifically wanted a quote from a flight director. - Who wanted a quote?
- The President. - The President?
Nixon. He wants odds.
We are not losing the crew.
l gotta give him odds. Five to one against?
- Three to one? - l don't think they're that good.
We are not losing those men!
How long are they gonna have to burn the engine?
Look, tell him... three to one.
Expect loss of signal in less than one minute.
When we pick you back up we will have your P.C. plus two burn data.
Roger that, Houston. We'll hear from you again at acquisition of signal.
You wanna look?
Oh, look at that.
Aquarius, that's 30 seconds until loss of signal.
Neil and Buzz's old neighborhood.
Comin' up on Mount Marilyn.
Jim, you gotta take a look at this.
l've seen it.
Aquarius, this is Houston.
We expect loss of signal in approximately ten seconds.
So long, Earth. Catch you on the flip side.
When you go into the shadow of the moon...
and the moon is between you and the sun...
you see stars that are more brilliant than anything you've ever seen...
on the clearest nights here on Earth.
And then you pass into the lunar sunrise over the lunar surface.
lt must be an awe-inspiring sight.
l-l-l can't wait to see it myself.
The problem now is not so much a question of an adequate oxygen supply...
but it is the rate of consumption of water...
which is vitally needed for the cooling operations...
to maintain the electronic systems and so forth.
Look, it's Fra Mauro.
l can see our landing site.
Look at the Tsiolkovskii crater.
l can't believe how bright the ejecta blanket is.
lt's like snow. lt's beautiful.
That's Mare lmbrium to the north.
Thirteen, this is Houston.
We're reading your telemetry. lt's good to see you again.
Good to see you too, Houston.
We are picking you up at a velocity of 7,062 feet per second...
at a distance from the moon of 56 nautical miles.
Stand by for your P.C. plus two burn data.
l had an itch to take this baby down, do some prospectin'.
Damn, we were close.
Gentlemen, what are your intentions?
l'd like to go home.
We got a burn coming up.
We're gonna need a contingency if we lose comm with Houston.
Freddo, let's get an idea where we stand on the consumables.
Jack, get into the Odyssey...
and bag up all the water you can before it freezes in there.
Let's go home.
Aquarius, we got some P.C. plus two burn data for you fellas.
So you're telling me you can only give our guys 45 hours?
That brings them to about there.
Gentlemen, that's not acceptable.
Gene, Gene, we've got to talk about power.
Whoa, whoa, guys! Power is everything!
- Power is everything. - What do you mean?
Without it, they don't talk to us, they don't correct their trajectory...
they don't turn the heat shield around.
We gotta turn everything off, now. They're not gonna make it to reentry.
- What do you mean, ''everything''? - With everything on, the LEM draws 60 amps.
At that rate, in 16 hours the batteries are dead, not 45.
And so is the crew. We gotta get them down to 12 amps.
- Twelve amps? - How many?
You can't run a vacuum cleaner on 12 amps, John.
We gotta turn off-- We have to turn off the radars, cabin heater...
instrument displays, the guidance computer, the whole smash.
Whoa! Guidance computer. What if they need to do another burn?
They won't even know which way they're pointed.
The more time we talk, the more juice they waste.
- That's the deal? - That's the deal.
Okay, John. The minute we finish the burn, we'll power down the LEM.
Now in the meantime, we're gonna have a frozen command module up there.
We're gonna have to power it up using nothing but the reentry batteries.
- That's never been tried. - We've never even simulated it before.
Well, we're gonna have to figure it out.
l want people in our simulators working reentry scenarios.
l want you to find every engineer who designed every switch, every circuit...
and every light bulb that's up there.
Then talk to the guy in the assembly line who actually built the thing.
Find out how to squeeze every amp out of both of these goddamn machines.
l want this mark all the way back to Earth with time to spare.
We never lost an American in space.
We're sure as hell not gonna lose one on my watch.
Failure is not an option.
- What? Huh? - Good, you're not dead.
l've been trying to get in touch with you for 45 minutes.
Jesus, John, what are you doing here?
l gotta get you in the simulators. We got a ship to land.
- What? - There's been an explosion.
Oxygen tanks are gone. Two fuel cells gone. Command module shut down.
- What about the crew? - Crew's fine so far.
Trying to keep them alive in the LEM.
We're gonna have to shut that down pretty soon too.
We got a lot of people working the numbers on this one, Ken.
Nobody's too sure how much power we're gonna have when we hit reentry.
The command module's gonna be frozen up pretty good by then.
You see this ammeter rise over 20 at any point, power-up is no good.
We see it spike, that's sayonara for the guidance computer.
Our guys can't reenter. Okay?
How much power do we have to play with?
Barely enough to run this coffee pot for nine hours.
- Go. - Yeah, Ken Mattingly just got here.
Copy. He's here.
They've been losing heat since the accident.
They're gonna start getting water condensation on the control panels.
- Ken, glad you're here. You know what's going on? - John's brought me up to speed.
- What do we have left in the batteries? - We don't really know.
We gotta get started on some shortcuts for power-up.
You know how short?
lt's all in the sequencing. lf we can skip whatever we don't absolutely need...
- turn things on in the right order, maybe-- - l agree.
- You started on a procedure? - The engineers have tried, but it's your ship.
- We gotta get you in there. - Okay.
Frank, l need the sim cold and dark.
Give me the exact same conditions they've got in there now.
- l need present status of every instrument. - You got it.
l need a flashlight. That's not what they have up there.
Don't give me anything they don't have on board.
Let's get this show on the road. Put him in space, fellas.
Okay, Houston, the quad heater circuit breakers are open.
We're using the forward omni when the earth's in the window...
and we're switching to aft omni when we see the moon.
We copy that, Thirteen.
Aquarius, we don't want you to make any more waste dumps.
The venting may push you off course.
- Oh, Christ. - What's up?
No more waste dumps. We're just gonna have to store it.
Jack, we're gonna need some more urine bags.
Okay, Houston, that leaves us with just the computer...
which l'm shutting down now.
And that's it.
We just put Sir lsaac Newton in the driver's seat.
ls it A.M. or P.M.?
A.M. Very, very A.M.
Haise is running a temperature, and none of them has slept.
l can't order these guys to go to sleep. Could you sleep up there?
lt's gonna get awful cold in there for those guys.
Gene, we have a situation brewing with the carbon dioxide.
We got a CO2 filter problem on the lunar module.
- Five filters on the LEM. - Meant for 2 guys for a day and a half.
- l told the doc-- - They're already up to 8 on the gauges.
Anything over 15 and you get impaired judgment, blackouts...
- beginnings of brain asphyxia. - What about the scrubbers on the command module?
- They take square cartridges. - The ones on the LEM are round.
Tell me this isn't a government operation.
This just isn't a contingency we've remotely looked at.
Those CO2 levels are gonna be getting toxic.
l suggest you invent a way to put a square peg in a round hole rapidly.
Okay, people, listen up.
The people upstairs have handed us this one, and we gotta come through.
We gotta find a way to make this...
fit into the hole for this...
using nothing but that.
- Let's get it organized. - Okay, let's build a filter.
Better get some coffee going too, someone.
The Haise family lives in El Lago, Texas.
His wife, Mary, is from Biloxi, Mississippi.
When Fred Haise was growing up in Biloxi...
he may have looked ahead to a fine family...
but he never dreamt of flying.
l'd never flown really before l went into the service...
and l only went into the flying business as a means to getting a commission.
- Good morning. - Henry. Don't you ever sleep?
- l have a request from the news people. - Uh-huh.
They want to put a transmitter up on the lawn.
lt's kind of a tower for a live broadcast.
They didn't care about this mission. They didn't even run Jim's show.
Well... it's more dramatic now. Suddenly people are--
Landing on the moon wasn't dramatic enough for them. Why should not landing be?
Look, l, um, realize how hard this is, Marilyn...
but the whole world is caught up in it.
- lt's the biggest story since-- - No, Henry.
Those people don't put one piece of equipment on my lawn.
lf they have a problem with that, they can take it up with my husband.
He'll be home on Friday.
When you are sad and lonely
And have no place to go
And have no place to go
Come to see me, baby and bring along some dough
And we'll go honky tonkin' Honky tonkin'
Honky tonkin', honey baby
We'll go honky tonkin' 'round this town
lt's too cold in there.
That's a nice one of Mary.
- You don't look too good, Freddo. - l'll survive.
- There's aspirin in the medical kit. - l took some.
Jim, l'm all right.
lt was an accident, Mary gettin' pregnant.
You should have seen the look on my face when she told me.
Well, that has a tendency to happen.
l wonder if it's a boy or a girl.
You're gonna find out soon enough.
l never dreamed l'd ever get to do something like this:
come up here on a real mission.
Most of the guys l graduated high school with...
never even left home, and here l am.
Oh, yeah... here you are.
lt hurts when l urinate.
Well, you're not gettin' enough water.
l'm drinking my ration the same as you.
l think old Swigert gave me the clap.
He's been pissin' in my relief tube.
Well... that will be a hot one at the debriefing for the flight surgeon.
That's another first for America's space program.
Listen, um... l've been going... over some stuff...
Listen, um... l've been going... over some stuff...
and l'm a little worried about this cold affecting our battery efficiency.
We quit heatin' the glycol to save water and power, so that's not helping.
lt could cost us amp hours on the back end?
-That's a possibility. -l've been goin' over the numbers again.
Have they called up with a reentry plan yet?
- We're comin' in too shallow and fast. - We're workin' on something. Hold on.
l can't remember the ratio to temperature.
We got no references on board.
Let's see if Houston can pull up the mill specs.
Listen, listen! They gave us too much Delta V. They had us burn too long.
At this rate we're gonna skip right out of the atmosphere, and we're never gonna get back.
What are you talkin' about? How'd you figure that?
l can add.
- They've got half the Ph.D.s on the planet working on this. - Houston says we're on the money.
What if they made a mistake and there was no way to reverse it?
Do you think they would tell us?
- There's no reason to tell us. - What do you mean? That's bullshit!
There's a thousand things that have to happen in order.
We are on number eight. You're talking about number 692.
ln the meantime, l'm trying to tell you we're coming in too fast.
l think they know it, and that's why we don't have a goddamn reentry plan.
That's duly noted. Thank you, Jack.
- Goddamn this piece of shit! - Hey!
- This piece of shit's gonna get you home. - All right.
That's because that's the only thing we got left, Jack!
- What are you saying, Fred? - l think you know what l'm saying.
Now wait a minute. All l did was stir those tanks.
What was that gauge reading before you hit the switch?
-Don't tell me how to fly the damn C.M.! -You don't know, do you?
They brought me in to do a job!
They asked me to stir the tanks, and l stirred the tanks!
- Stop kicking yourself in the ass. - This is not my fault!
No one is saying it is.
lf l'm in the left-hand seat when the call comes up, l stir the tanks.
Yeah, well, tell him that.
l just asked you what the gauge was readin', and you don't know!
Look, we're not doing this. We are not gonna do this.
We're not gonna go bouncing off the walls for ten minutes...
because we're just gonna end up right back here with the same problems!
Try to figure out how to stay alive!
Aquarius, this is Houston.
- Are we on VOX? - No, we're not on VOX.
Yeah, Houston, this is Aquarius. Go ahead.
Yeah, Jim, could you check your CO2 gauge for us?
Yeah, Houston, we were just looking at that.
Our CO2 measurement has jumped four notches in the last hour.
That can't be right. l went over those numbers three times.
Jim, that sounds about right. We were expecting that.
That's very comforting, Houston. What do we do about it?
We're working on a procedure down here for you.
- Do you copy? - Oh, Christ.
All right, Houston, we're standing by for those procedures.
Christ, l know why my numbers are wrong.
l only figured it for two people.
Maybe l should just hold my breath.
The deadly CO2 gas is poisoning the astronauts with every breath in and out.
Heads up. Heads up.
- Oh! Go, go, go, go! - Someone get that. Damn.
Heads up, people. Look out now.
- What's this? - That's what they gotta make.
- l hope you got the procedures for me. - Right here.
All right, Aquarius, this is Houston.
Do you have a flight plan?
Affirmative, Andy. Jack's got one right here.
Okay, we have an unusual procedure for you here.
We need you to rip the cover off.
He wants you to rip the cover off the flight plan.
The other materials you're gonna need here are...
- a lithium hydroxide canister-- - Two, two.
Two lithium hydroxide canisters. l'm sorry.
- A roll of gray tape. - Duct tape.
Duct tape. You need an L.C.G. bag-- Two L.C.G. bags.
The red suit hoses, and you've got the flight plan cover.
- Can you give me a timetable? - Henry! Henry!
What about their level of carbon dioxide?
lt's, uh, climbing.
You're saying that they're almost out of breathable air?
Wait a second. That's not what he said. He said we're working on it.
You want to cut the duct tape three feet long.
- Tell him to use his arm. - Just use your arm.
- lt's a good arm length. - l see what you're getting at. Hold on.
Jack, tear that piece of tape down the middle lengthwise.
- All right? - Hold on, Houston.
While the astronauts appear to have enough oxygen to keep them alive...
one thing they have too much of is carbon dioxide.
With each breath, the three men expel...
more of the poisonous gas into the lunar module cockpit...
and the scrubbers intended to keep the atmosphere breathable...
are quickly becoming saturated.
Oh, shit. l tore it.
Houston, what do we do if we ripped the bag? Can we tape it?
- They just tore the bag. - Oh, no.
Uh, stand by. What should l tell 'em to do?
They should have one more.
But they've still got a long way to come.
They are now working on their backup facilities, their emergency facilities.
The problem is, if anything more goes wrong, they're in real trouble.
