    SYNOPSIS: With the Skylab space station in good shape, the astronauts spent Sunday taking photographs of America's resources and fishing grounds in the Gulf of Mexico. Using high powered cameras, the astronauts scanned a distance of about ten thousand five hundred miles for data on game fish in the Gulf, pollution and weather along the US/Canadian border. They worked with scientists on the ground.

    Later in the day, the astronauts prepared for Monday's spacewalk, when they are to unfurl a second sunshade over the station, re-load the sun-watching cameras, check the disabled Apollo ferry ship, and check for wiring damage from a short circuit.
