OT: Re: LM Rescue
- I have heard specifically in several documentaries Gemini astronauts
saying that, should the EVA crewman become incapitated, their orders
were to cut the umbilical, close the hatch, and begin reentry. I can't
imagine NASA telling the IV crewman to sacrifice himself in some sort of
grand gesture. Simple arithmetic: 1 dead & 1 alive is better than 2
dead, anywhere, any time, any how.
...because I'm good enough,
I'm smart enough,
and, doggonnit, people LIKE ME!!
