Other bits will be placed tn a container ar-d exposed to elements in the earth's atmos- phere to determine any reac- tion. The ruterial was taken from one of ttvo core sampling tubes that. Edwin E.

Armstrong explored July This sample was hurried lo the bio-preparation section of an airtight lunar receiving labora- tory here so experts can get an early reading on how it might affect the sterile mice.
