The Apollo 9 astronauts peer into a Mobile Quarantine Facility (MQF) aboard the USS Guadalcanal, shortly after their splashdown on March 13, 1969. The MQF was aboard the Guadalcanal for a four-day test in preparation for Apollo 11.

Aboard the MQF were flight Surgeon Dr. William Carpentier and test subjects Paul Kruppenbacher, Arthur Lizza and Texas Ward.
