Description

This data set consists of 4- by 5-in. color transparencies of geologic samples collected at the Descartes region of the moon on the Apollo 16 mission. The photos show the lunar rock samples in various orientations designated by compass directions related to the orientation of the sample in situ on the lunar surface. Also, on some frames, top and bottom surfaces are designated. The samples are shown beneath the designated sample numbers and beside a cm ruler. The photography is generally very good.
