    Project Mohole was a U.S. government-sponsored effort in the late s and early s to drill down to the earth’s lower crust and upper mantle to learn more about the interior composition and geologic history of the planet. Mohole produced technological and scientific innovations vital to the offshore industry and to the nation as a whole. The rest of the chapters have also been modified and updated with additions on the work and achievements of the International Geophysical Year (IGY); Mohole project; continental drift and polar wandering; exosphere; state of the theory of magnetic storms and aurorae; and possibility of extra-terrestrial sources of life.

    Project Mohole was an ambitious attempt to drill through the Earth's crust into the Mohorovičić discontinuity, and to provide an Earth science complement to the high profile Space project was initially led by the American Miscellaneous Society (AMSOC) with funding from the National Science Foundation.. Phase One was executed in spring Five holes were drilled off the coast of. Project Mohole fell victim to political pressures, cost overruns, poor vendor selection, and financial constraints caused by the war in Vietnam. The only success coming from the entire venture was due to the work of dedicated men who showed the world what could be done. Bob Bauer and his colleagues ushered in the age of deepwater drilling.

      In , Project Mohole collapsed when the US Congress voted to cancel its funding. Nevertheless, the project coincided with a growing acceptance of plate-tectonics theory. Lisa Mohole was a famous singer, leader of Project Mohole and twin sister of Leslie Mohole. Like her sister, Lisa had short, blonde hair with a black bow, a gold nose ring and a mole. Her bow, ring and mole were however on the opposite sides than her sister's, with her mole and bow on her left and piercing on her right nostril. She wore a pink shirt with a black tank top over it, a green.

The Mohole Project drilled and obtained samples in nea feet of water. Drilling was done from an untethered ship using dynamic positioning, a breakthrough in naval engineering. The book explains several methods for doing this and why a particular one was chosen.

Labeled’ Project Mohole, ’ this project was originally suggested to Hess by Walter Munk in Hess pushed for the project, and the National Science Foundation supported it from to He chaired the panel charged with determining where to drill, and the first core sample was obtained in Partially related to Project Mohole, the term is also found in the Mars Trilogy books by Kim Stanley Robinson and the concept is much closer to what is encountered in the game.

The name Mohole "is a portmanteau of "hole" and "Moho", the shortened name of the Mohorovičić discontinuity, being the frontier between the Earth's crust and the mantle". Phase II of Project Mohole is now well under way, and many problems have been solved.

The basic design of a stabilized drilling platform with a dynamic positioning system is virtually complete, and some of the prototype models of new drilling tools developed by the project recently were tested in a well drilled in basaltic rock near Uvalde, Texas.

() Chapter: PROJECT MOHOLE.Project Mohole expanded its operational range by inventing what is now known as dynamic positioning. Phase One proved that both the technology and expertise were available to drill into the Earth's mantle.

It was intended as the experimental phase of the project, and did succeed in drilling to a depth of feet below the sea floor.
