Mohole was dubbed No Hole by Nevertheless, the Mohole folks broke some records. They drilled above 3, metres of water. This had never been done before. They didn’t use a platform, but had an untethered ship outfitted with drilling equipment.

For the film adaptation, see From the Earth to the Moon (film). In his book “A Hole in the Bottom of the Sea” (Bascom, ), Willard Bascom, Director of Project Mohole, notes that probably the first written suggestion for deep penetration down into the mantle was given by Frank Estabrook, an astrophysicist from the Basic Research branch of the U.S. Army in Pasadena (Estabrook, ). In addition to. Abstract. For more than 30 years, following the abandonment of the bungled Mohole project, designed to drill a hole through the crust-mantle boundary, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has energetically supported and shepherded along a spectacularly successful scientific ocean drilling program that has cored oceanic sediments and crust at more than a thousand places over most of the global. They called it Project Mohole. The CUSS I, a Naval barge converted to a drilling barge. Courtesy of NSF. Up to this point, no one had ever drilled into oceanic crust, let alone the mantle. Geophysicist Walter Munk was the first to propose the idea to the scientific community in

  Bascom himself detailed the Mohole experience, which later was abandoned by Congress because of its cost, in his book, “A Hole in the Bottom of the Sea: The Story of the Mohole Project.”.

Bascom probably played a larger role in implementing the Mohole project than anyone else; he later wrote a book about it called A Hole in the Bottom of the Sea. Bascom, a can-do technician with abundant reserves of machismo who had worked with Munk in the South Pacific, was good at improvising technology to meet the needs of scientific researchers.

The Mohole Project drilled and obtained samples in nea feet of water. Drilling was done from an untethered ship using dynamic positioning, a breakthrough in naval engineering. The book explains several methods for doing this and why a particular one was chosen.

initiated, there is no Mohole, and there is not going to be one for a long time. There is, however, a lengthy and unat-tractive trail of bickering, bitterness, and shortsightedness, involving some of the leading figures of American science and science administration.

And there is. It’s cost estimates had finally soared beyond $ M. Project Mohole sadly became Project “No Hole.” In his book, The Executive Decisionmaking Process, Ralph Sanders criticizes the leaders of Mohole for getting caught up in the ebullience of the s Apollo Maslow Window, “The scientists argued that, just as in the space program.

Inin a letter to Science magazine, Dr. Frank B. Estabrook proposed boring through the earth’s crust into the Moho. This was no small task as the crust averages about miles thick. Deep in the ocean, however, the crust thins to less t feet. Making hole in the sea floor three miles down, though, seemed impossible.

Half a century ago a prestigious crew of oil drillers and engineers embarked on an unprecedented scientific adventure. Their mission: to dig deeper into the earth than anyone had ever gone. Host Bruce Gellerman celebrates the anniversary of Project Mohole with Ed Horton, one of the original team members who went on to deeply influence ocean drilling.

The Kola Borehole is the deepest point on Earth that is also man-made. Recently scientists have discovered a few breakthroughs that lie within it. Subscribe. some foxing on all edges. The dust jacket has a small hole lower right of the front cover.

The Mohole Mystery is a juvenile science fiction novel, the eleventh in Hugh Walters' Chris Godfrey of U.N.E.X.A. series. Hopefully I can get through this Memory Lane piece without stirring up any controversy. Once a week, back in the s, school kids received a copy of My Weekly Reader, a news magazine for children.

We liked it because it broke up the monotony of school and classroom. Launched inand discontinued just a. The borehole actually is a series of holes, all branching off from a central hole. The deepest portion of the hole, while only 23 centimeters (nine inches) in diameter, is 12, meters (40, feet) deep.

The hole remains the deepest borehole, despite the12,meter-long (40, foot) Skhalin-I Odupto OP well, dug in Russia in Read the book. Based on the The plot of the new movie Crack in the World seems to have been inspired by Project Mohole, so a brief review of that troubled effort to reach deep into the Earth is in order.

First proposed inPhase 1 of this mighty engineering project got started in Five holes were drilled at the bottom of the. Core samples from 6 km below the surface. Inside the project’s foot-tall enclosure resides a unique drilling apparatus. Most deep-drilling rigs use a rotating shaft to bore through the ground⁠— using a series of extensions which are incrementally added as the hole grows deeper⁠— but such a method was unworkable with a hole as deep as Kola was planned to be.

Like kids trying to dig to the other side of the planet to get to China or Australia, but with power tools and the backing of their governments and vastly greater sums of money to support their efforts.The information learned on the ``road to'' selecting a MoHole site is at least as important as succeeding with that inspirational goal itself [see also Murray et al., ].
