LocationPart of Comprehensive Sample (14169-14188; 14250-14299); location selected 100 to 125 m west of the LM; part of weigh bag 1038 used to hold rocks and fragments collected from Station H, EVA-2.
DescriptionThe purpose of the Comprehensive Sample (14169-14188; 14250-14299) was to acquire a statistically significant set of small rock samples to petrographically characterize the distribution of rock types in the lunar regolith. The sample location was selected 100 to 125 m west of the LM. A two to three meter diameter circle was marked and all of the walnut sized rocks on the surface within the circle were collected with tongs. Weigh bag 1038 was used to hold rocks and fragments from Station H, EVA-2. The largest samples are numbered 14312-14320 and the residue is 14290-14297. Samples 14294-14297 are the largest fragments of the residue. Sample 14297 is a polymict breccia with an unusual clast mineralogy.
