Abstract
The federal Bureau of Mines has conducted research in support of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) Apollo program to acquire fundamental scientific and engineering knowledge of lunar-mineral resources for NASA's office of advanced research and technology. Equipment and techniques were developed to conduct soil shear tests in a simulated lunar environment. Shear tests performed with this equipment in ultrahigh vacuum and controlled laboratory atmosphere showed that simulated lunar soil increased in strength in the simulated lunar environment. Work done under a contract with National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
