The sensor assembly is conprised of 3 long period (LP) and a short period (SP) seismometer, an electrical power and a data subsystem, and a thermal control system. In the LP seismometer, low frequency (approximately 250 to 0.3 second periods) motion of...

Still and motion pictures will be made of most spacecraft maneuvers and crew lunar surface activities. During lunar surface operations, emphasis will be on documenting placement of lunar surface experiments, documenting lunar samples, and on recording in their natural state the lunar surface features. Command module lunar orbit photographic tasks and experiments include high-resolution photography to support future landing missions, photography of. surface features of special scientific...

Apollo 16 astronauts will explore the Descartes region, man's first opportunity to explore the lunar highlands. The site is some 2,250 meters 7,400 feet higher than the Apollo 11 site and is representative of' over three-fourths of the lunar surface. Preliminary geological analysis of the highlands indicates that the Moon's crust underwent modification early in its history. By studying these modification processes, we hope to achieve a better understanding of the development of this portion of...

It will provide an energy source at impact equivalent to about 11 tons of TNT. After Young and Duke have completed their lunar surface operations and rendezvoused with the command module in lunar orbit, the lunar module ascent stage will be jettisoned and later ground-commanded to impact on the lunar...
