Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project (LOIRP) Status 24 February 2014

Dennis Wingo Lunar Orbiter Status, Monday February 24, 2014

Today I re-ran part of one tape, W1-069 to get a better capture of a medium resolution image.

It seems that at the end of the day, out of all of the medium resolution images, we are completely missing one, and I think it is because one was lost at the ground station. There is a 30 minute gap between two adjacent tape numbers that should have that image. We have almost all of the other medium resolution images. We also lost pieces of at least three high resolution images due to tape changes, and lost 90% of one (LO-I-042H) as the operations manager specifically told the FR-900 operator to turn the machine off on the tape.

We will be having some wow images coming out soon. Austin did a great job putting together the other "Earthrise" and Keith is doing an article on it. Austin is busily processing tapes. We have almost everything processed to the frame let level now so we have a big task of naming the frame lets, and then they start to get processed first at the frame let level for fixing problems, then they will get assembled. This is the next huge task that is in full swing now.
