See list belowDecember 31, 196969-PA-T-152APA/Chief, Apollo Data Priority CoordinationCan we cut 2 hours out of the Apollo rendezvous?
As you are no doubt aware, there is a movement afoot to shorten the Apollo rendezvous by 2 hours. This would be done by eliminating the CSI and CDH maneuvers and executing TPI about ½ hour after insertion. The reason this is being considered is to reduce the crew's workday which currently is really pretty bad. Of course the thing we would have to accept is a reduced capability to tolerate dispersed conditions. In any case, at the urging of members from several of the upcoming crews, Ed Lineberry and his people have been working on a new trajectory and timeline. We would like to get together on January 14 to go over this business and decide what to do next. I am sure it is too late to consider a change of this magnitude for Apollo 13, but I don't believe it is too late for Apollo 14 unless the new plan has some major drawbacks. If you're interested, call me in a week or so for time and place.
