  5. 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

  6. 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.

  10. 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
