Certainly, the critical steps were always included but, otherwise, trivial steps like "Turn right and back into PLSS" (see page Sur-28, near the middle) were eliminated.] And, because of that perception, we now have a space station that's being dedicated to science and it is really an engineering necessity. It did require moving around methodically and very slowly to avoid banging into things - no getting around it. (Pause) Okay.

[With two people in suits and backpacks, it wasn't going to be easy to lean down far enough to reach the dump valve built into the forward hatch. 108:30:53 Aldrin: All right. (Long Pause). That sounds pretty good. I think, once outside, we really didn't have any appreciable comm problems at all. Okay, let's go to dump. This and the fact that the Apollo Snoopy caps were dark-brown & white may explain why they were named "Snoopy" caps. 108:54:53 Aldrin: Mine is 4.7. We're coming up in about 6 minutes on GET of 108.

You already have the AOS/LOS for this orbit. I don't know that I had any thing like that.

Now, there are some good reasons why you might want two airlocks on a vehicle; but if, in front of engineers, I start suggesting a lunar landing craft with two ladders so that the two guys go down together, it's liable to be looked at in a facetious way and the sound engineering will be set aside because of the facetious nature with which someone might interpret what I'm trying to say.
