  1. Left to right; Melvin N.A. Peterson professor of oceanography and who also directed the Deep Sea Drilling Project from Scripps Institution of Oceanography from 1971 to 1986. Ken Brunot the Deep Sea Drilling Project Manager and also William A. Nierenberg who served from 1965 to 1986 as director of Scripps Institution of Oceanography and vice chancellor of marine sciences at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) aboard the research ship D/V Glomar Challenger. Circa 1968.

  2. Stroked Out Position-The Heave Compensator aboard D/V Glomar challenger is shown in a partially stoked out position. The lower lifting block and piston rod supports the full weight of th drill string and the upper cylinder portion is linked to the traveling block. The system is designed to improve core and extend bit life by eliminating the movement and bottom pounding of the drill string due to vessel heave. This is accomplished by maintaining a constand hydraulic supporting under the piston as the compensating cylinder heaves with the vessel. Maximum working load is 600,000 pounds and maximum heave compensated 15 feet. Load variation at 400,000 pounds (plus or minus) 2,500 pounds.

  4. Initial Drill for Re-Entry - This 14 7/8 inch four roller cone tungsten carbide insert roller bit is used to drill the initial hole after the re-entry cone has been landed on the ocean bottom. It is used to run the 16-inch casing which is hung below the cone. Then comes the 11 3/4-inch casing necessary to prevent deep penetration holes from filling up with debris. A similar 10-inches in diameter is used to drill the remainder of the hole.

  5. Smiles of Success-Four Deep Sea Drilling Project key officials are holding the first sediment core ever recovered through the re-entry procedure. Left to right, Operations Manager Valdemar F. Larson; A.R. McLerran, National Science Foundation Field Operations Officer; Project Engineer Darrell L. Sims; and Project Manager Kenneth E. Brunot. Re-Entry was achieved and the first core recovered off New York in June of 1970 in 10,000 feet of water

  7. First Re-Entry Core Crew - It was a historic occasion early in the morning on Monday, June 15, 1970, when the first re-entry procedure core was hoisted on the drilling floor of D/V Glomar Challenger. Engineers, drilling crew members and scientists hold pieces of the gray, hemipelagic sediment. Back row, left to right, Leon Blurton, Global Marine Inc Project Officer for re-entry; Benneth E. Brunot, SSDSP Project Manager, and V.F. (Swede) Larson, DSDP Operations Manager. Second row, A.C. Wheeler, Max Stillwell, Dan Womack, Travis Rayburn and Homer Smith of the drilling crew. Rayburn was drilling superintendent. Front row, Dr. Terry Edgar, DSDP Coordinating Staff Geologist, DSDP Chief Scientist Dr. M.N.A. Peterson, Charles Simon and Art Bedwell of the drilling crew

  8. Re-Entry Trophy-Deep Sea Drilling Project officials and drillers are shown with the first core taken with the re-entry capability on June 14, 1970. The picture was taken on the automatic pipe-racker aboard D/ V Glomar Challenger. First row, left to right, James A. Ruddell, Dan W. Womack, Homer Smith, Charles b. Simons, Waylong F. Brown, A.C. Wheeler, Jr., and Carl Pascuzzo. Second row, Sam Dooley, David Billington, Max Stillwell, Art Bedwell, John Cole and Leon C. Blurton, who was Global Marine Inc. Project Officer for re-entry. Last row, Project Engineer Darrell L. Simms, of DSDP; A.R. McLerran, of the National Science Foundation, Captain Joe Clarke, of the Glomar Challenger; Travel Rayburn, Drilling superintendent, and V.F. (Swede) Larson; Operations Manager for DSDP. Larson and Sims co-directed re-entry trials for the Deep sea Drilling Project
