[i]McDIVITT: This is what all the fuss was about. They might have been transmitting to us to get back in but we were in VOX and couldn't hear a thing.
WHITE: I did a few things after this time that I wasn't doing to deliberately stay out. But I was deliberately trying to do one last thing. I was trying to get that last picture. And this was one of a couple of times that I kicked off the spacecraft really hard, to get out to the end of the tether. And I wasn't successful in getting the position so that I could get a picture. I felt this was one part of the mission that I hadn't completed. Everything else was successful and I wanted very badly to get that picture from outside. I spent a moment or so doing this. This was also the period of time in which I called down to Jim and said, "I'm actually walking on top of the spacecraft". I took the tether, held onto it, and used it as a device to pull me down to the spacecraft. I walked from about where the angle starts to break between the nose section and the cabin section. I walked from there probably about two-thirds of the way up the cabin, and it was really quite strenuous. Could you see me walking along, Jim?
McDIVITT: No, I couldn't see but I could feel the thumping on the outside.
WHITE: That's when I got to laughing so hard. This was when Jim was saying to come in.[/i] [/B][/QUOTE]
