John Batchelor and I welcomed Nancy Atkinson to the program, to discuss her April 24, 2015 Universetoday.com article, “13 More Things That Saved Apollo 13, part 9: Avoiding Gimbal Lock.” See www.universetoday.com/119984/13-more-things-that-saved-apollo-13-part-9-avoiding-gimbal-lock. During our Hotel Mars segment, we discussed Gimbal-lock, the use of Passive Thermal Control, and the piloting skills of Jim Lovell in bringing Apollo 13 safely back to Earth. I’m quite sure you will find this to be an interesting discussion.
