Title: View of Apollo 12 lunar sample no. 12025, called Core Sample 1
Description:
A close-up view of Apollo 12 lunar sample no. 12025, called Core Sample 1, 
and collected on the lunar surface, about 225 meters below the point where 
the Apollo 12 Lunar Module touched down. This core sample and others 
collected on the Apollo 12 mission differ from those collected by the
Apollo  11 crewmen in the Sea of Tranquility in that the Apollo 12 core
samples have  easily recognizable stratigraphy and two coherent crust-like
layers. This  sample has dominantly fine-grained texture.
