Drawings of Rock Sample Cuttings on 8x10 Positive Film

NSSDCA ID: PSPG-00579

Availability: At NSSDC, Ready for Offline Distribution (or Staging if Digital)

Description

This data set consists of 8- x 10-in positive films of cut-away drawings of rock samples from the Apollo 15 mission. These cut-aways illustrate just how the rock sample was cut, into how many pieces, the orientation of the rock, and the piece designation. The cut-aways may be used as a catalog for choosing what piece of a sample an investigator may want photographs of for inspection. They also will be distributed in response to requests for rock sample photos for those samples for which there are cut-away illustrations. There are not drawings for all the samples held, and there are drawings for samples not held.
