Faulty Switch Briefly Perils Space Mission Compiled From Journal (Vires SPACE CENTER, 15 sped toward I he moon Monday night and was cleared to continue toward a lunar landing after a flashing light 'was found to have been caused by a bad switch rather than any serious problem aboard the space- craft. Astronauts David R. Scott, Alfred M. Worden and James B. Irwin Monday morning were launched flawlessly from Capo with their new moon buggy and scientific payload. They were hurled into a 100-mile orbit of the earth and then set course for the moon- Soon thereafter, however, an electrical short, cir- cuit developed and Mission Control said that if it. were found to control critical valves, there would be no moon landing.
