View of undisturbed lunar sediment as core tube from Apollo 11 is opened

A view of undisturbed lunar sediment (sample 10004) as core tube from Apollo 11 is opened. The material was described as medium gray silty fine sand, loose (very incoherent), almost structureless, with scattered angular rock graments, glass spherules and aggregates of glass with brilliantly reflective fracture surfaces. The lunar soil was under study and examination in the Manned Spacecraft Center's Lunar Receiving Laboratory.
