Cabin Prep for EVA
« on: 09/18/2023 06:11 pm »
While watching Tom Mattingly's EVA (for film cannisters) on Apollo 16, I wondered what kind of cabin preps were/are needed before depressurization, on any vehicle (Gemini, Apollo, Soyuz, Dragon, etc.).  In particular, I was wondering about any bagged food or drink packs, liquid waste bags, or anything like that.  Are they stowed in a some kind of pressurized locker before depress?

Similarly, are fluid experiment samples returning on Dragon protected from an emergency cabin depress?

Thx
