Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project (LOIRP) Status 13 January 2014

Dennis Wingo Status Status, mid afternoon, Monday January 13, 2014

Things are going pretty good today. We are finally past the point where they were having problems with the spacecraft stopping the image scans. This makes it really hard on us as their fix kept backing up the film, leading to a completely screwed sequence of image scans.

Fortunately I will have the Lunar Orbiter Photography document in my hands in the next few days (it was shipped Jan 7) and can figure out what was going on.

We are currently scanning LOV-G4-076, which puts us at 11 tapes so far today. I am coming in early so that I can get more done per day right now. This puts the remaining tapes at 401! Hopefully I will get at least three more done today, bringing us down to 398!

Dennis Wingo Status, evening, Monday January 13, 2014.

Well I got through G4-080 today. This puts us at 397 tapes to go!

Lots of good captures today. The Goldstone captures end at G4-101 so we have 21 more Goldstone tapes to go. Hopefully finish by mid day Wed and can start on Madrid!
