    Deep Sea Drillers-With a portion of the 194-foot drilling derrick behind them, the "Big Three" of the Fifty Leg of the Deep Sea Drilling Project examine a sedimentary core on the deck of the drilling research vessel, Glomar Challenger. Left to right, Dean A. McManus, Co-Chief Scientist, William F. Allinder of Texaco, Inc., Cruise Operations Manager, and Robert E. Burns, Co-Chief Scientist. McManus and Burns are from the University of Washington (Seattle), and they directed the scientific program from San Diego to Honolulu. Bill Allinder represents Scripps Institution of Oceanography and DSDP on the Challenger and is responsible for the technical and operational success of the first leg in the Pacific. 1968

    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.

    Oil-Laden Core-Dr. Maurice Ewing (left), of Lamont Geological Observatory, looks at a piece of oil-laden sedimentary core being held by Dr. J. Lamar Worzel, also of Lamong. 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

    Russians Laud Drilling Project - Dr. Alexander P. Lisitzin, left, a geologist, and Dr. Valeriy A. Krasheninnikov, right, a micropaleontologist - both from the Institute of Oceanology, Academy of Sciences, Moscow, discuss a core sample taken on Leg 6 of the Deep Sea Drilling Project with Dr. Melvin N.A. Peterson, DSDP Chief Scientist. Because of the great depths reached in drilling and coring oiperations, the Soviet scientists said, "a new era has been opened in Marine Geology." Scripps Institution of Oceanography is managing institution for the $12.6 million Project
