Apollo 11 Anaglyphs


"Hard Going"

In most places, lunar soil is easy to penetrate down to a depth of about 10 cm, but quickly becomes hard farther down.  Buzz couldn't hammer this core tube in more than 20 cm.  On later missions, larger-diameter, thin-walled tubes made the job easier.

In this anaglyph, the foreground bootprint depths look about right.

The Solar Wind Collector, a sheet of foil hanging from a crossbar at the top of a metal pole, is just beyond the core tube.
