  1. View of stern thrusters in skeg of Global Marine Inc.'s Glomar Challenger while on ways just before the launch 23 March [1968] in yards of Livingston Shipbuilding Co., Orange, Texas. Thruster tunnels are 57 inches in diameter. Starboard screw also is visible in photo. Similar pair of thrusters is located in bow of vessel. Computer-controlled thrusters will hold ship on station during drilling of core holes in up to 20,000 feet of water in Atlantic and Pacific Oceans during Deep-Sea Drilling Project. The Global Marine-designed ship has a length of 400 feet, beam of 65 feet, and displacement of 10,500 tons.

  6. Historic Core- Co-Chief Scientists Dr. Melvin N.A. Peterson, left, and Dr. N. Terence Edgar are shown aboard the Deep Sea Drilling Project drilling ship, Glomar Challenger, with a core of altered basic igneous rock. The historic core was recovered at Site 10 on the second leg of DSDP from beneath 1,500 feet of Cretaceous and Tertiary sediment in 15,400 feet of water in the Western North Atlantic Ocean. Visible in the core liner is altered basic igneous basement rock overlain by white marble. Scripps Institutiion of Oceanography is operating institution for the $12.6 million Deep Sea Drilling Project.

  13. Eocene Deep Sea Core-Dr. Joshua I. Tracey, Jr., left, of the U.S. Department of the Interior Geological Survey, William F. Allinder, center, of Texaco, Inc. and George H. Sutton of the University of Hawaii's Institute of Geophysics, inspec an Eocene deep sea core (approximately 60 milliion years old) in the Core Laboratory aboard the drilling research vessel, Glomar Challenger. This sample was recovered at Site 71 on Leg VIII of the Deep Sea DrillingProject in the Pacific Oceanin 14,500 feet of water and after a penetration of 1,800 feet into the ocean bottom. The core is cherty limestoe and was recovered in one of several attempts to get lithified rock during the 55-day cruise from Honolulu to Tahiti. Drs. Tracey and Sutton were Cruise Co-Chief Scientists. Mr. Allinter, who holds one of the heavy diamond bits used to recover cores during the deep ocean probe, was Cruise Operations Manager. Scripps Institution of Oceanography, of the University of California, San Diego, is managing institution for the Deep Sea Drilling Project under contract to the National Science Foundation.

  15. Radiolaria Skeletons - This scanning electron microscopy picture, magnified 100 times, shows skeletons of various forms of Radiolaria in sediment cores taken at Site 55 in the Caroline Ridge area of the Western Pacific Ocean by the Deep Sea Drilling Project. In life these tiny organisms llived near the ocean surface, and upon death their skeletons fell to the sea bed to become entombed in the sediments. Drill bit penetration of the ocean floor at the site was 429 feet and the water depth was 9,383 feet. By carefully studying them scientists can determine how long ago they lived and can learn much about the history of the ocean. Scripps Institution of Oceanography, of the University of California at San Diego, is managing institution for the Deep Sea Drilling Project under contract to the National Science Foundation. Scientific guidance for the Project is provided by the JOIDES Institutions.
