The two noted geophysics were Co-Chief Scientists on the first leg of the Deep Sea Drilling Project. The oil core was recovered at the Sigsbee Knoll in the Gulf of Mexico in 11,743 feet of water with drill bit penetration 480 feet threough the floor of the Gulf. Holding the plastic core container at the right is Jim Dean, of Mobile Oil who was Cruise Operations Manager aboard the drill ship, Glomar Challenger

  19. Starboard bow view of Glomar Challenger on ways just prior to launching 23 March 1968. Visible in hull are bow thruster tunnels. A similar pair is located in stern. Thrusters will enable ship to remain on station while drilling in water depths of from 3,000 to 20,000 feet. The Gobal Marine-designed drilling ship, built by Levinston Shipbuilding, Orange, Texas, will work for Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego, in performance of Deep-Sea Drilling Project in Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Drilling is scheduled to commence in June 1968.

  39. D/V Glomar Challenger. The 10,500 ton vessel is 400 ft. long, has a beam of 65 ft. and a loaded draft of 20 ft. She is owned and operated by Glomar Marine Inc. (GMI), of Los Angeles, under a subcontract with SIO. She is capable of conducting drilling operations in the open sea using dynamic positioning to maintain position over a borehole. Admidships is the drilling derrick which stands 194 ft. above the waterline. Below the derrick (not visible) is the 20 X 20 ft. center well ("moon-pool") in which is mounted the guide shoe and through which the drill pipe, bit and other tools are lowered and pulled up during drilling operations. Forward of the derrick is the GMI-designed auto matic pipe racker which normally contains 23,000 ft. of 5-inch S-135 drill pipe. Quarters for the crew and scientific staff are located aft, as are all scientific laboratory spaces.

  40. Dynamic Positioning-Drawing shows how the Deep sea drilling Project ship, Glomar Challenger, remains on station while working in water depths up to 20,000 feet. Dynamic positioning usersa computerized system of pulses from acoustic beacons on the ocean floor which are picked up by a ship mounted hydrophone array, fed into a computer, and translated into corrective action by propulsion units (tunnel thrusters and ship propellers) which automatically keep the Challenger precisely on station. The drawing also shows the flexibility of the drill string which weighs 400,000 pounds at a water depth of 20,000 feet.

  48. 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.
