218 18 36 06 PLT Okay, my friend, what's the matter?

PLT Well, all of the ... all of the elastics

are outboard to the grommet.

SPT That 's right.

PLT Except for one of them. It's one the

_ bottom

SPT Yeah, now that one slipped through.

218 18 36 43 SPT Well, I'm trying to think. We ought to

SF_ You talking about the elastic bands?

SP9 Yeah.

218 18 37 27 SFT No, they ought to be - out of that little

channel there because I can hsrdly get them

hands that ought to be up on that circular
piece. You're working on Just that one
that I'm not going to use, anyway.

PLT All right. Well then, ... you are going

to use?

in there when they're like that.

SP_ They _re.

218 18 38 38 SPT No. It's sort of funny to say that yo_

can't pop the elastic but -

218 18 38 h3 CDR It,s real tough elastic. I guess we had

so many complaints of them breaking, that
they put on something really tough.

PLT Okay, a little tool to stick under it.

SPT I had to get 'em with my fingers up

here. Cause every one of those that
come out, the elastic drops into that

PLT Oh, yeah.

SPT Now the only way that would be avoided

is if those nuts are screwed up tightly.

PLT No, that still won't do, - let me see.

218 18 39 42 SPT Yeah, if those nuts screwed up tightly

then it won't do that. Are all those

218 18 40 38 PLT Some nuts look like they are, but I got
one down here ... it's not down in the

SPT Uh-ha. Couldn't get it out?

PLT No, there's a couple underneath like

that, too.

Sl°T Ye ah.

PLT Well, might just have to - -

218 18 40 56 CDR I'll tell you what you could do. You
could work along - well, maybe you ought
to try to break those three right there
now. And use those ... in some way.

218 18 41 07 SPT Cause then I won't have to be bouncing

around the whole array and possibly get
them - others of them knocked around,.

PLT You want me to go back out there, Ow?

218 18 41 19 SPT Yeah, I think so. An'other rod or two

SPT Now, was that under my left arm, AI, that

we decided in the checklist to do it?

218 18 hh 15 CDR Let me see what it says. We'll do it

exactly like it says, which says here. As
soon as ladder is long enough to be reached
the ... keep the clothesline separated by
inserting arm between the lines.

PLT Hold it there, AI, we gotta - -

SPT I've got it.

PLT ... me work with it under - going under

my left arm - -

218 18 h5 09 SPT I think it's under your left arrl.

PLT - - or above?

SPT I think it's under your left arm.

PLT Was it likethat?

Page 43 of 54

SPT No, no, under your left arm.

PLT Well, the trouble is with keeping this

line ... up.

CDR Keep the clothesline separate by inserting

arm between the lines. I guess the - the
rod would be above your arm, otherwise
it's gonna be a little difficult to pitch
it around- -

PLT Yeah!

218 18 45 31 SPT But that's the way we did it before. In

order to have a - a line that I could make
the other end with, he put it under his
left arm.

PLT Sounds like a good way to do it, then.

CDR Cause you're right if he doesn't hold it

right, you can't - you can't get in the
place to mate 'em. That's a fact.

PLT I'm turning, Ow.

SPT Okay ...

218 18 46 04 PLT Just like that.

218 18 46 05 SPT Just like that.

SPT What I'd - what I'd like is to hold the

pole and - like this you Just feed it

hold it?

PLT Yeah.

could cut the- cut the one elastic

SPT That might be the best idea.

CDR Sure could.

SPT Don't do it, yet.

218 18 h7 19 CDR If you go in the lock compartment, get

the scissors out of that thing, sving
out. It might be hard to get the scissors
in there, but you could probably do it.
Trouble is you'd have to keep coming back.
And then holding the scissors with no
tether would be interesting, too.

SPT I mean elastic just does not break.

218.18 h7 54 SPT Well, it's Just gonna have to take time,

F I guess.

PLT Hey, can we get the pole up here, now?

Have to get it closer to me. I can bring
you out, Ow.

SPT Can you hold it from rotating?

PLT Okay.

218 18 h8 38 SPT What do - it's a difficult angle.

PLT What's it - 0wen, is it - what's it doing?

SPT Well, I think I'm through making it but -

I keep hitting the other end of the rod
up on the airloek head, trying to get it

218 18 49 02 CDR That's right. That's the - that's the

reason Jack's got to have it just in
the right position on him or you can't
make the pole.

PLT Oh, oh, let's not get too much line out here.

SPT I'm not letting any out, any extra.

218 18 50 22 PLT Okay, I want the ... facing me all the time.

CDR Good idea, Jack. Never let the thing rotate.

218 18 51 03 SPT Have you tried it, twist 'eraout? It

rotates that lock ... It can be dropped
in the slot. Whew! IDkay, I'm gonna have
to stop a minute.

CDR That's good, take it easy. Now many you

got assembled?

PLT Four.

CDR' Four assembled good - that's - that's okay.

Sl°T ... the fourth one, I've only got three.

CDR That's one - that's 20 percent of them.

218 18 52 25 PLT Then we have three of them.

CDR Three of 'em assembled. Okay. Most

important we don't drop the little
things. Grommets.

218 18 53 16 SPT There's the angle I would like to use. I

guess you - can push it forward toward me?

if you can open that camera to 22 and see
if it bothers the lens. And then Just leave

those scissors and cut that elastic that's

your hands are going to get so tired you
won't be able to put the poles together.

SPT Yeah!

CDR That m_y be true. Have to be careful you

didn't lose the poles once you did that.

of what's going on, Story.

CC Go, AI.

CDR Okay, they've got six poles assembled,

everything'stransferreddown. Here's
been the problem. We got the little
grommets, as you know_ on the end of the
poles and so as Owen has been pulling
these poles off the fack, the little
grommets tend to roll down like they're
going off the end. Now we haven't been
able to break the elastic, it's really
tough. So there's no way to break it.
So he's been having to maneuver very
carefully - -

PLT O. - O. - Just a minute.

carefully out of the rack to keep - to
from losing the grommets. Now it's'been
taking time and it looks like he's going
to get it. I suggested one alternative
_lich doesn't sound too good, but it's
a possibility if he - in case he gets
tired. Namely, come,back in the lock,
bring the poles in, repress the lock, cut
this - the - -

CDR Why don't you go ahead and talk to " _ _ , " .'.:
them, O? _ _'

SPT Okay, we Just got the first ll-section

pole out, Story, aud passed it on out
to Jack. V_ybe you can - no,
you've not - you don't have any video,
of course, but uh, the ].l-section pole
is now being clamped to the base plate
and, uh, it's not oscillating too
badly at all. Uh, it does oscillate
with about a h- or 5-second period,
really a slow one and, uh - -

CC ... the amplitude at the end?

SPT _ l'd say the amplitude at the moment -

when I paseed it out to Jack wasn't
more than, uh, plus or minus 3 feet, so
it's not too big an oscillation.

PLT It's stable right now.

SPT And it's already stabilized, Jack says.

218 19 25 50 CC Okay, great. And you've made a lot faster

progress, uh, since _he last s_ation
th,n you made before. Are you doing
something different?

218 19 25 57 SPT Yeah, as a matter of' fact I am. In

order to get these rods out, I kick ou.t
a one foot ..., my right one, drop it
up aginst the F4 handrail, then lean
back and tug on it as hard as I can,
keeping the rods away from the, uh,
rack so that the grommet doesn't drag.
Then I have to twist it off through a -
that elastic band, uh, while bracing my
foot against Fh. So it's sort of a
complicated procedure but, uh, apparently
you do learn a little bit my trial
and error.

218 19 26 26 CC Okay, understand then. Looking at

the grommet on this TV, _m thought
Dmnp Tape 218-12
F_ Page13 of 26 ..........

• we saw some grommets on the •

locking nut. Are they on the collar
of the rod or on the locking nut?

.- SPT They're not on the rods themselves.

• The grommets are right behind the
locking nut.

CC Okay. That's where they ought to be

and, uh, I guess you found the twisting
motion helps retract the rod.

SPT Oh yea, I've been through all that.

Plastic bands are really something.

218 19 26 59 CC Okay, we solved another problem. You

•.. to. If we can be of any further q
help, let us know.

SPT Okay, we'll ... you, Story. I think

the next ride will go a little bit faster
probably, although what we're gouna do is
"- to - Jack is going to c_ne back and
then we will uh, turn this, uh, section
of rods over so that the next array is also
facing upward to me, so that I can see
them as I pull them out. Otherwise, l"m
afraid I'ii drag more across the rack
and Just pull another and .1most pull
another grommet.

218 19 27 33 PLT Holy cow! What are we over here, AI?

uh, no oscillation wbasoever.

218 19 28 29 SPT You wanna come up and flip this thing •

over, Jack? You could release it up

I 221 00 50 43 SPT _ay. This is the SPT with a message concerning
_ -- 2" ED52. THe web formation experiment and infor-
3 mation should go to John MacLeo4 at our program
4 office here, and - in - uh - Houston, and to the
5 Science - uh -Supervisor_ Dr. Gause at Marshall,
and to the SPI, Miss Jennie Miles up at Lexington,
7 Massachusetts. Now, I Just took the photograph
.5" of the spider web on the third night of construe-
ti.on and it does look like it is a third inde-
_J' pendent web. In fact, it - uh - uh - looks like
_; there's been improvements each might. And I
_2 wanted to try to describe the method of con- :-.
_3 struotion because some of this _rill probably not
i_ ' be entirely clear from the two-(ilmensional photo-
_; : graphs. Assigningthey even come out perfectly.
L:J _ ! Last night the spider realized apparently that _
C) 17 I _-
< ,3 ! the front part of the cage was not a permanent j.
,, fixtt_re.And that - uh - the - doors could be
!9 z opened, becuase on last night's web, the second .2]
-:_ :zO web, there were at the bottom of the cage a few 2
:_ :_I of the radials which were attached to - or at -
_] ?2 least touching the front of the glass. So when
..., 2:_ I opened it up why, it disturbed the web a little .
---- "-'-'2
..... ?' bit, it caused it to vibrate an_ shake and pull
:.]-" :2 a little bit. Tonight, it appeared that the way -
25 the web is constructed, the spi_er sort of --
,.: _7 walked around on the wall_ the four-side w8!1, :"
/_ .:,J of the enclosure and strung some more-or-less - -
2.° uh - single elements diagonally across the cornor.
;< _ And then also some of'them - Well, it looks like
]; that was probably the first step, sort of dia-
32 gonals across the cornor. And then, from these
_? diagonal she managed to start stringing addi-
;: tional stringers from the - uh - one diagonal i

:5 to another. And then eventually it was about <

23 to get clear across of the diagonal and then
! she started her normal construction. But then
L_ [ in addition to that, some of these radials have
3'; other stringers tied in toward the back of the
.<) cage, and so by tightening up on these stringers,
;i she actually sort of pulled the web back away from
2 the front part of the cage a little ways. So
-'3 tonight when I opened up the doors - uh - the -
_4 the doors would not touch the we_ in any way, and
._5 it caused no - uh - no Jostling or no stretch or

: ............... pulling of the formed web. And Arabella has
been sitting there very comfortably right in
. the center all during the daY. And so if she
continues her past pattern, why, I suppose she'll
spin another web every day or so. I don't know
how long - uh- this might go on.

221 O0 53 44 SPT Just a moment, let me - uh - uh - let me stop

herefora moment, i

221 O0 53 59 SPT Yes, I see the experiment actually calls for

spinning only three webs during the entire
_ experiment. But now actually we 'ii want to get
!i a few more photographs than that. We'll go _:
ahead use this Nikon to take photographs for
_ the next few nights as well. But I think we
<9 _: i ought to be thinking about what else we can do. :_
"< i? If I followed the procedure, of course, I'd
_ Just bottle the spider back up and throw Arabella
2_ _d her back up, and the water vial, and so L
_- 2! forth away. But there might be some other in- _
-7 -,,_ teresting things we can do, but if it doesn't
• ", take up very much of our time to go ahead and
.......-;- "z leave the enclosure. I think I'ii probably want
t5 to take if off the domed lockers and put it -
• _ down some place where it's a little bit more -
;_ out of the way. But alternativeswould be to
f_,) " try to put Arabella back in the vial and release
• the backup spider and see if the backup spider
,_ ._ follows the same procedure all over again.
• Alternatively, I' - I'd appreciate some words on
this independently. I'd like to know what these
._ i spiders can eat that we have on board. Could we
_ put any sort of vegetable or meat, obviously no
_ live food in their web and would the spider
_ consume it? And so, if there's anything that we
$2 could feed the spider or spiders to keep them
': alive a little longer? And what of the possibi-
3: _ lity of putting both spiders in the cage at the
_ . same time? 1%mderstand one will eat the other.
I And does it make any difference to anybody, or
!_ : is that the only way to provide a little bit of
_ _ extra food perhaps for one or other of the
_; spiders. So, - uh - I would appreciate it if
_5 sometime tomorrow this word could be transferred
_ to Dr. Gause and John MacLoed - uh - in Houston
_ and also and in particular to the student PI,
._ .... Miss Jennie Miles and let them get together on a
Dump Tape 221-01

•_ _ P_e3of_3 [i_i
i telephone conversation and then work out some
z sort of a little recommendation and send it up
to us on the teleprinter. So end of message from
the SPT. And I'd like to do this as promptly as
possible to get to at least the three people
mentioned and anyone others around the Center

little bit tan. Everything, as a matter of

fact, on the MDA and - eve1_/thlng exposed to the
Sun is a little bit tanned. The c_,,,,_nd
modttle ... hasn't been there as long, hut the
e_nd module itself got some dis - some tan
d/s.coloration on it. It's more pronounced
and it's got a line running - and a line below
the _heads around %he _1_-r--_erenee and then up
between your rendezvous and doeklng wind and
then in front of your docking window
eire_,mferentially along the upper edge of the

you wanted me to look over. And I see no
evidence of _iseolor_tion an_ I see no ecidenee
of sn7 residue around those vent ports,
whatsoever, those paris that you wanted me
to 10ok at looked very much inter. I am
looking at the co...-_d module mow. Sure is neat
to hang out here in the breeze with one arm and
Just k_-d of drift along with this thing Just
streaking the ground_ I noticed on the
e_k_nd module itself, there's amd on the whole
spacecraft as a _t -_or _e _tter, Skylab -
everything ex - that is exposed to the Sun
Dump Tape 218-18
Page ii of 31 _

i is turning tan - very much a tan color. That

which is not exposed to the Sun is still white.
On the conn_d module, it's starting to turn
a little bit also from discoloration from the
part that looks at the sun. And then there's
a darker brown line, not that brown, but
a darker tan that runs underneath the hatch
eire,,m_erantially over to a point near Al's
rendezvous and docking window and his side
window and then it runs up_ between those two
windows. And then hack around - along circumferen
tially along the top of the hatch over to my
rendevous window. Now, it's pretty hard to
see quad B as well as quad A. I notice that
both A and B - the quad package itself appears
from this point to be pitted. And it appears
to have been heated rather well on the sort of
helical structure upon which the - the thrusters
are mounted. The skin around quad A is blistered
• and some of it has flaked off. Thats Just the
outer layer .... at quad B, Just around the
/-_ edge a little bit. [et's see. Anything else
you want to know about the quads, There's some -
a little bit of point missing around the quads -
" quad A, that is and it's probably pretty much
the way that you exp_:ct it to be. I notice
the SPS engine bell appears as though it has
been heated rather we!l, which it has. The
ou side is - is discolored and brown and kind
of black and the pair.t's coming off, but that's
also to be expected. Let's see; anything else
you want to know about the cow,sand module
from this vantage point before I whip around the
showing that you have rolled the canister,
82 A and B doors are open. Have you finished

including the checkout of the H-ALPHA and S056

CDR Jack, come up a little higher, you loose-

CC Okay, fine, Jack.

PLT Okay, al_d in working around here, it's probably

worthwhile to compare working in a zerog
here with Working in a water tank, and probably
the biggest thing I've noticed in comparing the
two is that it's one beck of a lot further to
the _ottom of the pool.

218 22 14 56 CDR (Laughter) Great. Hey, Jack, get higher. You're

right behind the Joint where the A_4 is butted
up against the - the ... structure. They are
sort of triangular in shape and about 4 inches

5 of them, where the discoloration is greater
there than the rest of the vehicle.

CDR How about above the EVA hatch, towards the STS?

218 22 16 39 CC Copy that, Jack, and while I've got you there,
Just a reminder when you're cranking open the
SI_9 to do that extremely slowly because there's
a tremendous gearing down coming from the motor
to the mechanism and the motor speeds up very
rapidly when you're cranking that experiment

PLT Okay. I really can't see any evidence of any

glycol streaming, Story, on the side of the MDA.

218 12 0_ 24 SPT Ckay, this is the SPT on channel A with

record information for the Pl, Dr. James
Frost, on M133. Okay, Jim, I took the cap
off for the 3rd night here stud I estimated I
had 6 hours of •fairly good sleep last night.
I did wake up for i interval of same length
during the middle of the night. About the
only time I have done that for the whole
9 nights, so far. Now, also, it's slightly
worth noting that each morning tat l've
awaken for the last 3 nights with this cap
_ff, i've wwaken with a slight headache, not
much but Just a little bit of a slight
headache. No partictLlar area or anything
like that involved but Just a very genersl
slight headache ; might be associated with the
electodes. The cap - wearing the cap is
not particularly bothersome, probably a
little less bothersome thau it is in i g
because yuu don't have to sleep on any of the
°'elec - the electrodes. And one other thing
_ i've noticed on each of the 9 nights so far,
every night that I've been up here, and
within a hour to an hour and a half after going
: to sleep, I wake up briefly. I don't
know whether that's the normal cycle of down
to a deep sleep and back out again, which I
guess on the orde_ of an hour to hour and a
half, hut that seems sort of surprising that
this is so regular on all 9 nights. But
after this 1 hour to haou and a half, I wake up
very briefly then go back to sleep." That's
all the informaticn I have relative to M133.
That goes to the FI, Dr. J&ves Frost.

219 0_37 52 PLT Hello, space fans, this is Jack on channel A.

The subject is M509 for my f_lends Ed Whitsett, :
Br_ce MeCandless, and Lou RI_on. Battery
er 7, was checked on da_i219 at 0_:20.
the following readlngs, starting with
cell number i. Cell number i, 1.311, 1308,
i._08, 1.311, 1.306, 1.309, 1.309. 1.310,
1._07. Cell number I0, 1.308, 1.308, 1.312,
1.310, 1.306, 1.309, 1.305, 11.308, 1.314,
I._15, 1.314. Cell 21, 1.3_, 1.307, 1.313.
Total Battery was 30.1,

219 04 29 00 PET And _hat's enough of that.

219 0_ 02 02 CDR T_Is goes to Gerry Carr, Bill Pogue, and

•:, B_II Frome, and Ed Gibson. 8nggestlon: Why
" d_'t you fellows hrlng up s_e regular
. toothpaste, the kind that ycM like, instead
of using this Nasadent? Yo_ don't need to
.:_ swallow it. You can brush w_th it, Just a
" little hit of water out of the water gun, and
then spit it in a tow - a t_l or a - a wipe,
and then throw it away. And then you can •
d_ink the rest. This Nasade_t doesn't feel
li_e it's cleaning your teeth; it doens't
leave a good flavor in your mouth. And at
the end of the meal, when ycal take - taste
this, it kinda spoils the meal, whereas regular
toothpaste leaves you nice _d fresh. There's
nothing wrong with this stuff, except it
Just doesn't have a - much of a zing to it and,
._ personally, I'd prefer to have - no, I might
rephrase this and say, pers_ally, I think
yoU'd prefer to have the other. That's the end
of message.

219 16 50 21 CDR ... put them in a drawer; au_iif y'all don't

like these, you better get th@l messages up to
us _ight now. We got about i_! of these things
on Board, and - or more - and _hey all look
the Isame until you read the n_ers. And we're
trx_g to find a couple; we're _ing to Just use
theIL on the same guys, so if t_Is isn't satis-
faclory, let us know Immediat_y and then we'll
ehs_ge it and we'll get something we can stick
wit] CDR out.

219 16 58 01 CDR Okay, biomed, this is CDR again. The same

thix g happened today as happens every single
tim_. We get those calibrate S down very accur-
ately on the leg volume measuZ_ng system with
the ican open. Then we close the can and they
eha_ge about a little bit overi 0.1, so I have
_ to _o back and adjust them. !i would like to re-
c_end that we change our prOCedures so that we
- do _ot calibrate the legbandsi_ntilwe've closed
_ -. the lean. Then we can calibra_ the legbands very
_ accurately. Then we can go t61 the high cal and
the low cal. As it is, we'rei_nding up calibrat-
