  46. 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.

A similar pair of thrusters is located in skeg in stern of vessel. The 10,500-ton, 400-foot self-propelled drilling vessel, designed by Global Marine, Inc., will be used in the Deep-Sea Drilling Project in which cores of ocean bottom sediments will be recovered in water depths of up to 20,000 feet in Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. The project, funded by National Science Foundation, is managed by Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego. Drilling operations are to commence in June of this year.
