Space Shuttle Gains Remote-Control Landing Capability

cosmo7 Re:Filling the ISS over capacity a good idea? (248 comments)

I don't think so. All three Apollo astronauts had space suits and wore them at times during the mission, even in the Command Module, in case of a unplanned cabin depressurization.

That isn't right; Apollo was a shirtsleeves environment with suits worn only during launch, docking, EVA and reentry. The Apollo 13 crew didn't even wear suits during reentry.
