Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project (LOIRP) Status 10 December 2013

Dennis Wingo: Status December 10, 2013

Thanks to Jim we may have found the reference I need so that it is not such an incredible pain to get the image numbers from the tapes. We will check it out tomorrow.

As of right now we are more than 1/3rd the way through the Woomera tapes for Lunar Orbiter IV, finishing up W4-038 before I leave today. These are all long captures so the number of tapes per day is fewer than what I would like, but it is getting all the data so it is good.

Looking at some of the LO-IV images, they have some absolutely outstanding data on them. Lunar Orbiter IV was the first images of the Moon that I worked with and they have always been some of the most dramatic....

Still trying to get to W4-070 by the end of the day Friday. Goals are good!. If we can do that or get close I should be finished with Woomera before next Friday and be started on the Goldstone captures!

Fun stuff to watch the scenes go by!
