To Sherpa: I noticed you inquired about the audio of Schmitt saying "wink". The audio is available online at the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal.
Jack Schmitt, being the only ASTRO-geologist to go to the Moon, is a man who was a MAJOR player in the cover-up, and he is also a guy who I have
learned seemed to revel in the fact that he is keeping the secret - even joking about it like he did here in this "wink" instance. (and with his
slap-in-the-face rejected "mission patches".)
Sherpa, he made this comment during the mission's very first LRV traverse to Steno, exactly at the 122:00:45 MET portion of the timeline. Here is the
direct link to the page on the ALSJ site (the comment is in the lower half of the page - just run down the timeline to the 22 hours and 00 minute mark
"122:00:45 Schmitt: Houston, (pause as he listens to Bob) there are certainly a lot of big boulders...Whoop!"
You can see they failed to include the word "wink" in the transcript. If you download the MP3 audio they have for this traverse segment you can hear
him say "wink" clearly (the audio link is on the same page, but it is a 20 minute MP3 so you have to fastforward it to the 14minute and 25 second
mark to hear Schmitt's comment).
Hope this helps!
and BTW, I just did a quick browse around the site - WOW! Great stuff gang! Congrats on building a fantastic site! I look forward to chatting with you
