EP-95 ON THE MOON WITH APOLLO 16
 
 

[86-88] TABLE 5.-Apollo Science Principal Investigators and Instrument Contractors

 

Listed here are the principal investigators for all the scientific experiments that will have been done in the Apollo program when it ends in 1973. The principal investigator is the individual directly responsible for the scientific interpretation of the data obtained on each experiment. In most eases, he has the help of a team of experts in his field of science. Seldom before in the study of the science of either the Moon or the Earth has so much talent been brought to bear on the interpretation of an individual experiment.

Also listed are the instrument contractors. Only the prime contractors are shown. Many subcontractors from widely different geographic areas also contributed significantly toward the success of the new scientific discipline LUNAR SCIENCE.
