Description

This data set consists of black and white positives, made at LRL, of the field geology rock samples returned from the Hadley/Apennine region of the moon on the Apollo 15 mission. These photographs show the samples in various orientations at cardinal points of the compass with respect to the light source. The several surfaces of the rocks are also shown and are photographed beside a centimeter ruler for dimensions. The whole sample and each fragment of any broken up samples are photographed separately.
