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

Time span: 1971-07-31 to 1971-08-04


This data set consists of one master positive color roll of seven magazines (1010 frames) on 70 mm film. The pictures were reproduced from the original 70-mm SO-168, SO-174, and SO-368 ektachrome ES and ektachrome MS color film types. The quality of the photographs is generally good. Areas covered are between longitudes 180 deg E and 70 deg W and latitudes plus or minus 25 deg. The farside orbital coverage includes Tsiolkovsky and its environs and other large craters. The frontside orbital coverage includes Mare Serenitatis, the Apennine Mountains, Hadley Rill (including the LM landing site), W. Humboldt, and Aristarchus and the surrounding area, especially Schroter's Valley, Plinius, Messier, Messier A, and the Rumker Hills. Photographs of the moon taken after takeoff and of the subsatellite after release are included. The surface photography includes views of the LRV and its tracks, the LM, Hadley Delta Mountain, Spur Mountain, Mt. Hadley, rocks, and the fallen astronaut doll with a card showing the names of the astronauts and cosmonauts who have died in the space programs.
