Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project (LOIRP) Status 2 December 2013

Dennis WIngo: Status, end of day, December 2, 2013.
Today has been a marathon tape day. We started with M5-126 and made it al l the way through M5-150! Lots of not neededs and few frame let captures but we are now to the final day of image capture (from the ground station’s perspective) and we will complete through M5-158 tomorrow, good lord willing and the creek don’t rise as the old saying goes.
Will do the final listing after I finish the tapes tomorrow.
We will then go back and see what we have missed. I know of a couple of images that we mistakenly did not capture from Woomera. However, it is highly likely that by CoB Wednesday, we will have finished the Lunar Orbiter V captures. This mission had by far the most tapes and images. There are many really cool images that are NOT on the LPI website or the USGS. We look forward to providing these to the lunar science community…
