Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project (LOIRP) Status 7 November 2013

Status, end of day, November 7, 2013.
Dennis WIngo: Well, made it through M5-40 today. That puts us at over 25% of the way through the Madrid captures. Tomorrow we have six tapes that were captured several months ago so if everything goes well we will hit 1/3rd of the way through in one week. Details of the images captured tomorrow.
The machine is running very well. The head that we have on now is the one that the general brought to Nancy in 1991 before he headed off to the gulf war. It was the last good head and was the one that we used to get the machine working. It has been refurbished a couple of times and after a hiccup last week, when we got it back it was in near perfect condition, that is for a 45 year old head…
Status late morning November 7.
Six tapes in a row with an overlap with other tapes. Already in the 30’s today….
