Overall walk-around of the Command Module-Service Module umbilical.

Before Barack Obama's cancellation of Constellation, NASA technicians opened up this umbilical to study how Apollo implemented its umbilical to see if any information could be applied to the proposed Orion spacecraft.

For an example of what the CM side of the umbilical looks like post-flight, refer to dsc07730.jpg (part of my Apollo 14 picture set, back when it was still at the Astronaut Hall of Fame).

Picture 4 of 4.
