[i]Post Accident configuration
The Pad Emergency Egress Procedure specified in the Apollo Crew Abbreviated Checklist, page 15-2 (including planned changes), called for: Placing the CABIN RELIEF VALVE TO "DUMP";
One of the circuit breakers, "MASTER EVENT SEQ CONT ARM B BAT B" was found open. [b]All the other controls listed above are in the pre-accident configurations.[/b][/i]
[i]Initial observations and subsequent inspection reveal the following facts. The Command Pilot's couch (the left hand couch) was in the "170 degree position", in which it is essentially horizontal throughout its length. The foot restraints and harness were released and the inlet and outlet oxygen hoses were connected to the suit. The electrical adapter cable was disconnected from the communications cable. [b]The Command Pilot was lying supine on the aft bulkhead or floor of the Command Module, with his helmet visor closed and locked and with his head beneath the Pilot's headrest and his feet on his own couch.[/b] A fragment of his suit material was found outside the Command Module pressure vessel five feet from the point of rupture. This indicates that his suit had failed prior to the time of rupture (23:31:19.4 GMT) allowing convection currents to carry the suit fragment through the rupture.[/i]
