... of the Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments Package, or ALSEP, which was essentially a remotely operated geophysical observatory. ALSEP had its own power supply and telemetry system and was designed to monitor and control its instruments for two years after the astronauts left the lunar surface. NASA specifications...

... were studied by a group headed by Robert Kovach (Stanford). However, the active data as well as the other ALSEP (Apollo Lunar Surface Experiment Package) data have been in a format not necessarily conducive for modern-day analysis. Finding someone who could actually read this format was a four-year...

... be determined that the Venus surface attenuates high fre- quencies much more than does the Earth's crust, this distance might well be reduced by 20 per cent. Experience with seismic exploration on the Earth shows this distance to be slightly optimistic, whereas experience with the ALSEP seismometer shows...

... experiments and measurements have, nevertheless, been performed both on the Moon's surface and from orbit. Indeed, a legacy of the Apollo program is the acquisition of data from long-lived geophysical stations (ALSEP, for Apollo Lunar Surface Experiment Package) that consisted of seismometers, heat-flow...

... Package (ALSEP) recorded lunar seismic activity continuously between 1969 and 1977. These seismic data provided observations of deep moonquakes (DMQs), which manifest as repeating tidally-linked signals from sources located in geographically tight regions in the lowermost lunar mantle, called nests...

... the manned Apollo landings. As part of the Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments Package (ALSEP), Surface magnetometers, heat-flow probes, and seismometers operated until 1977 when the transmission of data was terminated. While re-analyses of these data occasionally yield surprises (such as the Apollo seismic...

... of the Apollo Lunar Surface Experiment Package (ALSEP), general models of the processes that contributed to the formation of the present-day lunar interior are currently being challenged. While reinterpretation of the Apollo seismic data led to the identification of a lunar core, it also produced a thinning...
