The Skylab 1 (SL-2) crew work in the experiments area of the Orbital Workshop crew quarters. Pete Conrad is inside the Negative Body Pressure Device. Joseph Kerwin attends to him on the left whilst Paul Weitz floats horizontally in the kitchen wash area, moving between rooms as he eats something. Kerwin shuttles between the restroom and the NBPD attending to Conrad who remains in the NBPD. Conrad claps repeatedly, as if excited, and then does something delicate with his hands, repeatedly tying and stretching something. Weitz continues to eat. Kerwin adjusts a pressure band around Conrad's left upper arm. It is connected to the rest of the NBPD with a cable which floats around. Kerwin squashes the NBPD down as the experiment continues. He floats over close to the camera to restart it again. Conrad eventually climbs out of the NBPD and floats in the middle of the shot in his underwear, tying his shoe laces.
