Lunar Sample 15245

MissionApollo 15
Sample Typesoil-general
Lithologyregolith breccia
LocationCollected from the floor and rim respectively of a 1m crater 20m upslope of the LRV at Station 6.
DescriptionSamples 15240 through 15245 and 15250 through 15255 were collected from the floor and rim respectively of a 1m crater 20m upslope of the LRV at Station 6. The crew described the crater as a "fresh little crater" and noted a concentration of clods up to 10 cm on an otherwise smooth, fine grained surface. Approximately half of the sample collected here are pieces of glassy breccia >1cm not included as part of the soil (15245). There are only a few fragments >1cm in the area surrounding the crater, and all other craters in the area are subdued. The general slope of the area dips 10 degrees to the north.
