In the Open (horizontal) position, used in the cabin, all the incoming oxygen stream is divided between a duct leading to the helmet vent and a duct leading the vents in the torso.

But that seemed like a logical suggestion. Both vertical? Reyes was Chief of the Pre-Flight Operations Branch at the Manned Spacecraft Center in Houston during Apollo; and Lotzmann reports that Reyes, Wayne Stallard and others drew little cartoons on the daily schedules to make them more interesting. There it is. [Armstrong, from the 1969 Technical Debrief - "It suffices to say that we never did understand what was required to enable good comm while we were inside the cockpit, relaying through the PLSSs. It was one of those things...I had a watch on but I don't think I looked at it. 108:21:08 Aldrin: Roger, Houston.

If you had one (that is, a morning checklist) setting there, you wouldn't follow it the same every day. Although I should have. Maybe. [Once Buzz has the valve open, he will leave it open until the cabin pressure has dropped to 3.5 psi. Let's see if he comes through any better now. A counter-weighted suspension device is bearing the weight of the PLSS although, evidently, a cable has come off its pulley. The First Lunar Landing NASA EP-73 .
Prior to that it was relatively quiet. 108:21:50 Armstrong: Do we have a Go for cabin depress? The LM pilot , restrained by "golden slippers" on the LM porch photographs various components
The other was, in training, we wanted to avoid as many activities as we could with the PLSS on our back, because it was very uncomfortable doing any additional exercise in one g. We did find, however, that it was quite comfortable, even without the shoulder pads, to have the PLSS mounted on your back. 108:11:22 Collins: ...00166, minus 00022, and the...
In detail, Pete and Al had the hatch open 3 minutes after starting the final depressurization, where as Neil and Buzz took roughly 11 minutes. After some puzzlement over the dialog, we concluded that it was Buzz who opened the valve. 108:21:41 Armstrong: (Static) My antenna's scratching the roof. There it is. Over. Okay, let's go to dump. (Long Pause). (Pause), 109:15:05 Armstrong: It's open.

(Long Pause), 108:58:18 Armstrong: Four-tenths of a pound in the cabin. Background: Extravehicular Activity (EVA) Time-line.
That's when it refreshed in my mind, years ago, that you had left yours inside and mine was the only one out on the surface.

And that can be very damaging, and I think that's happened in many cases. You would make small deviations just based on what seems appropriate at that time. Neil. It took a little time to discuss that, and we proceeded."] They could have done that in a safer condition but with the same equipment after they joined back up again."] Over. I just think in future planning, you are probably better off adding time for these kinds of things."] We had had trouble with that connector for 2 years or more. 108:07:37 Aldrin: (Garbled).

(Pause), [Several of the crews noticed that ice crystals formed as the moist cabin air rushed out into the lunar vacuum. We just have to improve that."] I remember that specifically at that time, because I reflected back on it a little later when I shipped my watch to the Smithsonian and it turned up missing. And I think that's a sorry situation. We're just waiting for the cabin pressure to bleed so...To blow enough pressure to open the hatch.
