1973.01.19 - KSC processing of SL-1 and SL-2 was progressing as planned. The Workshop and its associated modules were successfully stacked 29-31 January.


No major problems were encountered in the SL-2 processing.

Propellant loading and unloading, facilities, and ground support equipment tests were conducted on the Saturn IB launch vehicle at Pad B. Following tests, the vehicle was rolled back to the Vehicle Assembly Building. Prime and backup crews completed manned altitude chamber tests of the SL-2 command and service modules on 19 January, following which the spacecraft was moved to the Vehicle Assembly Building where it would be erected on the S-IB.
