GUEST: AEROSPACE CAMERMAN ADAM WHITE
“Freddo? You okay?” asks Jim Lovell, as they prepare to exit the Lunar Module for the last time.
“I’m, uh, I’m freezing,” replies Haise.
“Can you hold out just a little longer?” says Lovell.
“As long as I have to,” says Haise.
“Aw, come on,” says Lovell, hugging Haise.
“Damn,” says Haise.
“It won’t be long. Just a little while longer, Freddo,” says Lovell.
“Yeah,” replies Haise.
“Just a little while longer. We’re gonna hit that water in the South Pacific, open up that hatch. It’s eighty degrees out there,” says Lovell.
“Eighty degrees,” repeats Haise, shivering.
“You are a mess,” says Lovell.
“Yeah,” says Haise. And they leave the Lunar Module.
On the radio, Ken Mattingly is calling.
“Odyssey, Houston,” says Mattingly. “How we doing, guys? We’re closing in on Lunar Module jettison. As you know, that is time-critical. We should be making our move into the Command Module. Let’s get the hatch buttoned up. And, when you get a chance, let us know how you’re doing.”
