... 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...

... 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...

... is calibrated against experiments on natural, complex magma compositions. Rhyolite-MELTS does calculate reasonable phase equilibria, especially liquidus surfaces, for the more complex compositions relevant to this work. For example, MELTS predicts that the Apollo 15C green glass 1-bar liquidus is 1399 °C...

.... The LLR technique was developed during the 1960’s when the Apollo and the Soviet missions deployed retro-reflectors on the surface of the Moon. The McDonald Observatory was the first observatory to detect photons reflected by the Apollo 11 reflector using a 2.7 m telescope (Williams et al., 1996). Lunar...

... 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...
