@ApolloPlus40 – Quarantine facility passes test

17 June 1969: NASA completed a 7-day simulation of the Lunar Receiving Laboratory at the Manned Spacecraft Center in Houston, Texas, about a month before the Apollo 11 mission put humans on the Moon.

“The test simulated processing of lunar samples, operation of the mobile quarantine facility and crew reception area, and biolab activities. Action was under way to overcome procedural and equipment difficulties encountered in the vacuum laboratory.” (Manned Space Flight Weekly Report – June 23, 1969)

Now you can read a 1975 NASA report on the biomedical results of the entire Apollo quarantine programme here, and check out an image of the astronauts’ quarantine digs below.
