Description

This data set consists of 4 in. x 5 in. color positive films of geologic samples returned from the Apollo 17 mission. The photographs show the samples mounted on a disk with a compass orientation marked out, to show the orientation of the sample in situ on the lunar surface. The orientation of each face of the sample, as well as the top and bottom, is also indicated by compass directions. The photography of the details of the samples is excellent.
