Thermal expansion measurements were made on 14 kinds of rock over a temperature range of approximately -140 deg to 950 deg c. Chosen as likely to be representative of those to be found on the lunar surface, these rocks include a broad range of physical and chemical compositions from the large areas of volcanism in Oregon and northern California, and two nonvolcanic types. Analysis was performed on the expansion data that produced a direct plot of instantaneous coefficient of thermal expansion as a function of temperature. The data presented will add to the basic scientific and engineering knowledge needed to utilize extraterrestrial mineral resources for support of future space missions.
