  10. 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.

  27. 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.

  29. 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.

  33. 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.

Deep Sea Explorer - This is a stern, starboard view of the Deep Sea Drilling Project drilling vessel, Glomar Challenger, which is drilling and coring for ocean seeiment in all the oceans of the world. Scripps Institution of Oceanography, of the University of California at San Diego, is managing institution for DSDP under a $34.8 million contract with the National Science Foundation. The drilling vessel is owned and operated by Global Marine Inc., of Los Angeles, which holds a subcontract with Scripps to do actual drilling and coring work. The Glomar Challenger weighs 10,400 tons, is 400 feet long and the million-point hoot-load capacity drilling derrick stands 194 feet above the waterline. She is the first of a new generation of heavy drilling ships capable of conducting drilling operations in open ocean, using dynamic positioning to maintain postiion over the bore-hole. A re-entry capability was established on June 14, 1970, which will enable the changing of drill bits and re-entering the same bore-hole in the dee ocean. Forward is the automatic pipe racker, designed by Global Mairne Inc., which holds 24,000 feet of 5-inch pipe.

  35. Entering Bethlehem Steel's Hoboken, N.J., Shipyard is the Glomar Challenger, unique deep sea drilling ship which recently brought up the oldest sediments yet recovered from the world's ocean basins -- Middle Jurassic limestone 160 million years old. The cores were recovered in the Atlantic in waters three miles deep, and they will be used to interpret the formation and early history of that ocean. This ocean-bottom coring, known official as the Deep Sea Drilling Project, is sponsored by the National Science Foundation and is under the management of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, of the University of California at San diego. Scientists who participated in this historic phase of the proejct described their findings at a news conference in New York city today (June 1). While at the Bethlehem Hoboken Yard the Glomar Challenger will take on additional supplies for the next portion of the project. Owned by Global Marine, Inc., the twin-screw, diesel-engined craft has a length of 400 feet, beam of 65 feet, and draft of 20 feet. Her derrick top is 194 feet above water level
