  5. Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution geophysicists, Arthur E. Maxwell, left, and Richard P. Von Herzen, were Co-Chief Scientists for the Third Leg of the Deep Sea Drilling Project, directing the scientific program aboard the drill ship Glomar Challenger across the Mid-Atlantic Ridge from Dakar to Rio de Janeiro, beginning around December 1. Here with an oscilloscope in the background, Maxwell and Von Herzen examine the temperature sensing element of a heart probe used in conjunction with retrievable coring operations. Both men received their Ph.D. degrees from Scripps Institution of Oceanography, managing institution for the Deep Sea Drilling Project. 1968

  9. 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.

  10. View of 57-inch bow thruster tunnels of Glomar Challenger just prior to launch on 23 March [1968] at Levingston Shipbuilding Company, Orange, Texas. 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.

  11. 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.

  16. 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.
