1967.03.06 - Criteria established to resume Apollo testing in an oxygen environment

Although the final recommendations of the Apollo 204 Review Board were not yet in hand, MSC Deputy Director George M. Low believed the program "should start preparing a set of criteria which must be followed before we can resume testing in an oxygen environment".

"These criteria can then be used either to allow us to sign waivers on our testing embargo, or to go forward with additional messages, permitting testing, provided our criteria are met." He said the criteria would probably differ for:

- spacesuit testing,

- testing in oxygen chambers, and

- testing within spacecraft.

"They would probably include such things as the exact environment within and outside the exclosure; the type of flammable material; safety precautions and procedures; and emergency procedures."
