Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project (LOIRP) Status 3 February 2014

Dennis Wingo Short status, February 3rd, 2014 evening.

Got through tape W1-068 today. That is 19 tapes today, bringing the total number of tapes left down to 219... Sixteen more to go to finish Woomera! I will post the tapes numbers and images in the morning....

Dennis Wingo Status, mid afternoon February 3, 2014

Just a few thoughts before the end of day status this evening. In January of 2014 we set a project record for tapes processed. We did 241 tapes in Jan. That is a LOT of tapes and we will never equal it because as of Friday, there were only 238 tapes left to go in the project!

Today we started with W1-049 and captured it again just in case as it is a spectacular image that we will be showing this week. Right now I am about to mount W1-060, meaning that this is the 11th tape of the day, bringing the total left to go down to 227. Since there are only 84 Woomera tapes in theory I will complete the last Woomera tapes of the project (except for cleanup).

Wow....
