Soil Mechanics Experiment
Scroll all the way down...

The mechanical properties of the lunar soil are important for both engineering and scientific reasons...

bunltd was so very close too ... actually thought you'd get there first.
So next week we get to stumble about trying to locate some obscure Gizmo courtesy of globay!

I've been wading through NASA archives - and there is a lot of interesting stuff!
Thanks iamlost for a fun quiz...
WHO uses this gizmo?
WHAT is this gizmo?
WHERE is this gizmo used?
WHEN is this gizmo used?
WHY would anyone want this gizmo?
HOW can you find info on this gizmo?
;)Things I learned from the gizmo quiz today:
1. astronaut, 2. contact soil sampling device, 3. moon, 4. 1969 5. visit the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum
This is the first time I have actually participated in a gizmo quiz, and I probably won't be close to any computer next weekend, so if there is anybody who would like to present the new gizmo, you are welcome to.
(I don't know the rules exactly, so if anybody could instruct me on what to do, that would be nice)
