DJW001 is trying to make the argument that Apollo 13 temperature sensors were turned off to save power but looking at the newspaper articles and the tables seems to dispute that to, cough , to certain degree.
While the cabin grew frosty, equipment and electronics gear between between the cabin wall and the outside spacecraft skin was subjected to bitter cold.
I think we have shown that the science that supports Apollo is pretty much shoddy and unvalidated.

Love this thread, as a neutral its really informative, but Foos etc, ive gotta be honest, every single thing you guys come up with with gets shot down with science. I admire your determination and the fact you stick to your guns, but sooner or later you have to learn to admit you were wrong on something and move on in life.
I will of course have to disagree with you. I think we have shown that the science that supports Apollo is pretty much shoddy and unvalidated. And that the people behind the science are suspect. I do admit there have been some occasions were we have barked up the wrong tree, but then again, in many other areas we have found anomalies and contradictions that simply can not be explained away conclusively by science. I will provide a few more those in the near future.

How did they record the sound?
Be specific, I cannot read your mind.
How did who record what sound?
The video you posted was of film (16mm) footage during the LM ascent.
On the video you can hear what is occurring during the launch.
Since the material is on film. How did they record the sound?
And I'll add a third descriptor. "Bought and Paid for."
And the little detail of $41,000,000 in NASA grants that NASA paid out in grant money for scientists to examine the "moon rocks" between 1969-1979.

Have you watched Jarrah White's Where's the Plume video yet?
Did you see the NASA patch with a plume?
Westinghouse Lunar Color Camera
Usage: Apollo 10 (CSM), Apollo 11 (CSM), Apollo 12, Apollo 13, Apollo 14, Apollo 15 (CSM), Apollo 16 (CSM), Apollo 17 (CSM)
Additional planned usage not implemented: Skylab Orbital Test flights prior to 1980. The ASTP cameras were modified to fly on the shuttle had the STS CCTV system not been available for the hoped 1979 maiden launch. by the time STS-1 flew the RCA CCTV system was already in place. (Crew Station Closed Circuit Television CCTV for Operational Flight Tests 08.06.1976)
Resolution: more than 200 TV lines (SEC sensor - 350 TV Lines in vertical dimension)
Scan rate: 59.94+ fields/s monochrome (color filters alternated between each field) / 29.97+ frame/s / 525 lines/fr / 15734.26+ lines/s
Color: Field-sequential color system camera
Bandwidth: Real 4.5 MHz / 2 MHz up to 3 MHz (transmitter limitation)
Sensor: Secondary-Electron-Conduction (SEC) Tube
Optics: 6x zoom, F/4 to F/44
This camera was based on the TV camera used on previous missions inside the CSM, with modifications to adapt it to the lunar environment.
During the early part of the first Apollo 12 EVA, the camera was inadvertently pointed at the Sun while preparing to mount it on the tripod. This action caused an overload in the secondary electron conduction tube (sensitive for low light conditions), rendering the camera useless for the remainder of the mission. The camera worked properly for about forty-two minutes. On later missions, while modifications were made to prevent such accidents, problems were encountered with image brightness and contrast (and sharpness – due to the camera overheating while stored, and operating in the MESA).

Where do you get that figure of $41,000,000.00? Did I miss something? Also expecting scientist to work for free is bit odd. Especially when some of their hardware costs more than most people make in their entire lifetime.
.... what a joke...
....Over the communication system, Aaron gave the command, "Flight, try SCE [Signal Condition Equipment] to Aux." Neither Pete Conrad aboard Apollo 12, flight director Griffin, nor the capsule communicator (CapCom) had any idea what this obscure command referred to. Luckily, Alan Bean remembered that the SCE switch was located near his seat and followed Aaron's instructions. The flight telemetry was restored in Mission Control moments later, and the ground engineers saw that the vehicle was still operating properly.....
