[i]The rescue vehicle will remain on the launch pad until the end of the Skylab 4 mission. If not required for an emergency, it will then be returned to the VAB.
The rescue command module differs from those flown previously in that it has been equipped with two additional crew couches and additional life support and communications connections to enable it to return the three Skylab 4 crewmen and two rescue crewmembers to Earth if a rescue mission becomes necessary.
Prime crewmen for a rescue mission are Astronauts Vance D. Brand and Don L. Lind.[/i]
