Unpack Solar Wind Experiment ASTRONAUTS SET 6 RECORDS I Dei Moines Sunday Register ! July 27, 1949 Jr. General Section MOON- Continued from Page One of the U.S. Geological Survey. Volcanic lava can be one cause ofxbubbles in such rocks. N<fr\did there appear to be chondnHc material, which contains little globules and which makes up most meteorites, said Dr. Elbert King, a space center mineralogist. Varied in Size The rocks varied in size, one large one being judged to be seven inches long, five inches wide, and about 1% to 2 inches thick, said Dr, Clifford Frondel, Harvard University mineralogist. Others ranged down to the size of pebbles, and the box contained fine fragments as well. After the box was unpacked, Dr. Persa Bell, chief of the space agency's lunar and earth resources division, said initial reports from scientists watching the operation were "remarkable and interesting descriptions. "But they say there are bits of dust on the surface making it difficult to see all they would like to see," Bell added. "They did see some reflective crystal surfaces. We haven't yet seen anything like vesticles — lava rock with holes in it. "It was a great day. We've begun the look, but, of course, it will take a great long time." The dark, gloved hands used complex tools in the cramped vacuum cabin to remove first the solar wind experiment which scientists hope will yield information about the makeup of radiation from the sun. Next out were the two core samples. Color of Rocks A running account of the slow, meticulous unpacking was given by scientists standing two feet away from the windows of j the chamber. "It's gray, but it has a brownish tint," a scientist said after the first plastic bag was cut open. Dr. Frondel reported: "There are some 15 or 16 large pieces in view and a considerable amount of fragmentary material." WIREPHOTO (AP) Exposed to Moon Dust Terry Slezak, a photographer at the Manned Spacecraft Center near Houston, Tex., displays smudges of moon dust on his hand. Slezak became exposed to the dust Saturday when he was removing a film magazine which the Apollo 11 astronauts dropped on the lunar surface. Since he was exposed to the dust Slezak will have to remain in quarantine the same as the astronauts to make sure that the dust has not spread lunar germs. WASHINGTON, D.C.
