[i]SCOTT: I descended to the surface and hopped out and found that the one sixth-g environment was pretty much as everybody else had said. There was no problem going down the ladder. The front footpad was only very lightly on the ground. There was only very light contact.
IRWIN: I question whether it was even in contact with the ground because it was so free to swivel.
SCOTT: Well, it was when I got out because it made an impression on the ground.
IRWIN: It might have made an impression and then it might have rocked back.
SCOTT: The pad was on the ground when I got down the first time. It was pretty solid when I stepped down because I stood on the footpad before I stood on the ground.[/i][/B][/QUOTE]
