In a paralell universe where COVID-19 never happened, we are today going to Kennedy Space Center.

Since I am in this universe, I'm going to be listening to Real Time Apollo 13 all day by way of compensation. Currently T-8:01, with Launch around 8:13 this evening.

I may even get up at 4am Tuesday to hear the iconic

Utterly gripping.  Being able to listen to the back room talkback loops is key.  The fact that they've made the effort to sync them all up on a timeline makes it more real.  We put it on the proper TV and listened for about four hours yesterday.

It helps if you've learned the listening-to-three-conversations-at-once trick of talkback.  The transcript only covers what was on the main Flight Director / CapCom / Public Affairs mix.  Much of the real work is on the EECOM and GNC loops which aren't on the transcript so you have to actually listen.
