Abstract:

This report presents the findings of a cooperative effort by scientists of the Lunar Planetary Research Branch of the Air Force Cambridge Research Laboratories and of Arthur D. Little, Inc., on theoretical and experimental studies to determine the nature and most probable physical form of materials on the lunar surface. To accomplish these goals, the following efforts were performed 1 installation of an ultra-high-vacuum system to simulate the probable lunar environment, 2 selection of material samples to simulate the probable lunar surface, 3 experimentation on and analysis of these materials in a high vacuum, 4 studies of the behavior of clean surfaces in a high vacuum, 5 measurements of electrostatic phenomena in a high vacuum, 6 measurement of thermal properties in a high vacuum, and 7 spectroscopic studies.
