R., Douglas, J. V., Plant, A. Most of the crystalline rock fragments in the sample of lunar regolith returned by Apollo 11 are ilmenite basalts. The mineralogy of all these rocks is similar; major minerals are clinopyroxene, calcic plagioclase, and ilmenite, and olivine is a common minor constituent.
Moon Rocks and Minerals compiles the important findings that have resulted from the first study of the Apollo 11 lunar rocks, including preliminary data on Apollo 12 lunar samples. The compiled study samples and proposals on the lunar rocks are categorized into four general categories— mineralogy and petrology, chemical and isotope analyses.
Occurrence of KREEP in Apo12, and 14 samples is indicative of its relatively high abundance and suggests that the lunar crust is less depleted in elements that are common in KREEP (e.g. K, rare earths, P) than was originally thought on the basis of Apollo 11 basalt studies.
We sectioned, examined, and classified coarse (> mm) particles from five of the Apollo 12 soil samples:collected on the rim of Surveyor Crater; andfrom the rim of Bench Crater;from a light-colored layer in a trench dug in the rim of Head Crater; andcollected between craters.

GIBB, E.F S Download PDF. The very simplicity of the Moonŉs history makes it possible to pose a problem, perform an experiment on a limited number of samples and have some confidence in the generality of the observations.
Critical to the petrological, geochemical, and isotopic studies of the Moon are the virtual lack of H 2 O and CO 2, and of evidence for tectonic. Sources. Moon rocks on Earth come from three sources: those collected by the United States Apollo program crewed lunar landings from to ; samples returned by three Soviet Luna programme uncrewed probes in the s; and rocks that were ejected naturally from the lunar surface before falling to Earth as lunar Apollo missions collected 2, samples weighing kilograms.

In the new book "Picturing Apollo Rare Views and Undiscovered Moments," spaceflight historian J.L. Pickering and journalist John Bisney paint an incredible, vivid picture of.
These studies center around Rock brought back by the crew of Apollo All the other rocks they gathered and all those from the Apollo 11 flight have been dated at billion years.
But like the soil samples—the "dust" from the surface—Rock is about billion years old, or about the age of the solar system : Lunar Science Institute.
The average compositions of two different but overlapping sub-sets of the randomly sampled basalt fragments from the Apollo 15 rake samples have been analysed by INAA (Laul & Schmitt, ) yielding the average result Al 2 O 3 109%, SiO 2 456%, Al/Si 027, and by defocused beam techniques (Dowty et al., ) which, after removing (O.
The samples include four bulk samples (WR1, WR2, TR0, and TR1), four impact melts and glasses (Melt1, Melt2, GG, and BG), and four mineral separates (LM, LN, HM, and HN) obtained using combinations of density and magnetic susceptibility reported by Galimov et al.
