  8. D/V Glomar Challenger - This starboard side view of the Deep Sea Drilling Project's drilling research vessel, Glomar Challenger, was taken in the Atlantic Ocean. The 10,500 ton vessel is 400 feet long, has a beam of 65 feet and a loaded draft of 20 feet. She is a new generation of drilling ships owned by Global Marine, Inc., of Los Angeles, California capable of conducting drilling operations in the open sea using dynamic positioning to maintain position over a bore hole. Visible amidships is the drilling derrick which stands 194 feet above the waterline. Below, not visible, is the 20 X 22 foot center well in which is mounted the guide shoot and through which the bit, drill pipe and other tools are lowered during drilling operations. Forward of the derrick is the Global Marine-designed automatic pipe racker (partially visible) containing 24,000 feet of 5-inch drill pipe. D/V Glomar Challenger is the drilling vessel for the Deep Sea Drilling Project which is managed by Scripps Institution of Oceanography, of the University of California at San Diego, under a contract with the National Science Foundation

  9. 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.

  10. Dynamic Positioning and Re-Entry. Schematic diagram showing general arrangements allowing positioning of the drilling vessel in deep water and technique of drill hole re-entry. The re-entry cone, on the sea floor, is 16 ft. in diameter and is mounted on steel casing in the upper part of the borehole, where it is inserted as the initial borehole is started. When the casing and core are fully in place, the assembly is detached from the drill string and the hole is drilled deeper. To change a bit, for example, the drill string is recovered to the ship, the bit is changed, and then again lowered to just above the cone. The vessel is moved as necessary to position the bit directly above the cone, as seen by side scanning sonar, at which time re-entry is made by lowering the pipe.

  13. Ground-Level Bow View - This is a ground-level, head-on bow shot of D/V Glomar Challenger while in drydock before beginning Leg 26 of the Deep Sea Drilling Project. Shown on the bow is the new lookout station to protect seamen from the environments while engaged in the proposed Antarctic voyages. In addition, the newly installed support for a forward radar can be seen on the forecastle mast. The radar was installed to improve navigation during eh Antarctic work proposed for the next three austral summers. The Deep Sea Drilling Project is managed by Scripps Institution of Oceanography of the University of California, San Diego under contract to the National Science Foundation

  14. Initial Drill for Re-Entry - This 14 7/8 inch four roller cone tungsten carbide insert roller bit is used to drill the initial hole after the re-entry cone has been landed on the ocean bottom. It is used to run the 16-inch casing which is hung below the cone. Then comes the 11 3/4-inch casing necessary to prevent deep penetration holes from filling up with debris. A similar 10-inches in diameter is used to drill the remainder of the hole.

  18. New Satellite weather Antenna-Principal Electronics Technician David Havens turns the wheel which adjusts vertical angle on the new satellite weather antenna installed aboard D/V Glomar Challenger during the port call at Agana, Guam, between legs 59 and 60 of the Deep Sea Drilling Project. The big wheel at the bottom takes care of the horizonal and vertical antenna angles. Information is received from a satellite in stationary orbit and processed by shipboard equipment to produce a weather map which enables the captain, scientists and operations personnel to get weather forecasets 18 hours in advance at any drilling and core site.
