FROM SPACE                                                                                                     continued

In 1974, however, an ERTS photograph, taken from about 500 nautical miles over Mount
Ararat, shoWed an unusual object near the crest which, discussed in a United States
Congressional session and entered into the Congressional Record, has already attained
what one may qualify as lasting fame.

Senator Frank Moss, then Chairman of the Space Commission, in commenting on the object,
observed that it was "about the right size and shape to be the Ark".

Among the recent searchers for Noah's Ark on Mount Ararat in Eastern Turkey has been
Colonel James Irwin, the astronaut of Apollo 15, who drove the Lunar Rover land vehicle
on its misssion over the surface of the moon. 

It is interesting to speculate whether Colonel Irwin's interest in the survival of the Ark was
awakened as he crossed over the Middle East in orbital flights over the Earth prior to his
visit to the moon and perhaps wondered if the Ark really was still hidden high toward the peak
of Great or Little Ararat far below.

In any case, his dedication to the Ark Project is an interesting connection between very an-
cient history and the Space Age of today and tomorrow.
