Just to illustrate just how utterly massive the R-134B would have been, take a look at this illustration from a report written by Jack Swigert for The Society of Experimental Test Pilots:

Deep Space EVA

Same scene depicted in my last Apollo post. May very well be the same unknown artist too. Brought to my attention by none other than Mike Acs.

It took me a few, but the lower version is either an earlier or later version of the same painting. The figure representing James B. Irwin is a repaint. My guess is the image on NASA’s site is later, reworked to give the figure a slightly more dramatic pose. The painting is by a North American Rockwell artist.
