LM Acceleration Plots on Microfilm


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

Time span: 1972-12-15 to 1972-12-15


This data set, microfiched by NSSDC from hardcopy supplied by the experimenter, has 9 pages covering the Apollo 17 LM crash orbit that has low altitude gravity sensing. The first 4 pages contain selected program parameters. The next 3 pages contain listings, in column format, of the following: time in hours, minutes and seconds (hhmmss) gmt, time in minutes since the reference epoch, time in minutes on the associated plot for that particular data point, the Doppler residual in Hz, spacecraft altitude, spacecraft selenographic latitude and longitude, theoretical value of the Doppler shift calculated by the spline program used in the least squared fit, acceleration determined by analytical differentiation of the spline at the reference point, and a residual (in Hz) after the spline has fit the Doppler residual. The last 2 pages are plots of the 1m de-orbit vs minutes past epoch, and instantaneous rates vs minutes past epoch.
