The second task will be the ingress or the crewmen's move- ment through the hatch opening to a standing position inside the LM. The hatch opening and the space inside the LM are small. Therefore, the crewmen must move slowly to prevent possible damage to their EMU's or to the exposed LM equipment. Before the crew closes the hatch and begins the cabin re- pressurization, they will jettison the equipment they no longer need. The items to jettison are the used ECS cannister and bracket, OPS brackets (adapters), and 3 armrests. Numerous pieces of loose equipment will be left on the lunar surface after they have been deployed or used during the EVA. A complete list of this equipment except for a few pip-pins, brackets, and other small pieces of the larger pieces of equipment listed, is presented as Table 3-2 on the following page. 28
