  Digging a Hole in the Ocean: Project Mohole, 1958-1966
Project Mohole was an attempt to retrieve a sample of material from the earth's mantle by drilling a hole through the earth's crust to the Mohorovicic Discontinuity, or Moho.
Project Mohole was to include three phases, the first consisting of an experimental drilling program, the second consisting of an intermediate vessel program, and the third consisting of the final drilling to the Mohorovicic Discontinuity.
Although Project Mohole failed in its intended purpose, it did show that deep ocean drilling was a viable means of obtaining geological samples.

 Project Mohole - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
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 Race.
It was led by the American Miscellaneous Society with funding from the National Science Foundation.
Project Mohole contracted with Global Marine of Los Angeles for the use of its oil drillship called CUSS I.

The moholes, like the one pictured here, go anywhere from 10 to 20 kilometers deep and the temperatures at the bottom are a modest 300 degrees Kelvin (27 centigrade).
However, this is in contrast to the surface temperatures of 100 to 200 degrees Kelvin (-173 to -73 centigrade).
There are about 30 such moholes on Mars now, and they have raised the temperature of the surface about 40 degrees Kelvin.

Mohole, Project, program proposed in 1957 to drill a hole down to the boundary between the crust and the mantle, known as the Mohorovicic discontinuity at about 4 to 43 mi (7 to 70 km) below the earth's surface.
Initiated by the American Miscellaneous Society, a loose organization of scientists, the main purposes of the project were to determine the nature of this boundary and to attempt to fill gaps in the geologic record from samples of the rocks encountered.
Nevertheless, ship positioning and design, along with deepwater drilling technology developed for Project Mohole, were employed in the Deep Sea Drilling Project and future drilling projects.

 Mohole: Il buio e la luce
Mohole era disorientato, che cambiamento, il mondo è come lo illuminiamo, pensò, e pensò pure di trovarsi adesso in un posto artificiale, o per lo meno invertito.
Mohole guardò la roccia, dunque, strati spessi e sottili stavano lì, come poggiati su un fianco, non era una grossa inclinazione la loro, sufficiente però a generare suggestive vie di fuga verso l'alto, e tutta la galleria sembrava obliqua, o coricata forse, come un mazzo di carte, o un domino abbattuto.
Dopo il rimprovero collettivo Mohole non era più rimasto indietro, del resto sarebbe stato impossibile, tallonato com'era, nel bel mezzo della comitiva.

 Geology History: Project Mohole
Description of Project Mohole, which was an attempt to drill to the mantle of the Earth.
The barge used for the Mohole Project was named the Cuss I. It was literally converted from a naval barge for the project and was equipped with heavy drilling equipment.
The Mohole Project was cancelled in 1966 and approximately $50 million had already been committed, without even beginning phase two.

 Mohole a lezione di arrampicata
Mohole dava corda, la tratteneva appena al segnale pattuito, mollava poco dopo, il silenzio era reso possibile dal frusciare dell'erba, dall'ansimare immaginato di quello che arrampicava, sembrava avvolto in una serenità infrangibile, ogni tanto guardava in basso, sbuffava di fatica, poi di nuovo calma piatta.
Era uno scivolare senza sosta, impercettibile quasi, ma inesorabile, Mohole non aveva staccato un attimo lo sguardo dalla sagoma dell'amico che continuava la sua ascensione tranquilla, il cielo era diventato nel frattempo una sorta di sfondo di riferimento immobile.
Solo in cima alla parete, col vento in faccia, avrebbe potuto fermarsi a scrutare l'orizzonte col suo cannocchiale vibrante di emozioni, e lì cercato nel silenzio per qualche interminabile minuto, ansimante, i muscoli tesi per lo sforzo, Mohole laggiù sul ponte in preda all'apprensione, poi avrebbe scoperto tra le brume un profilo inconfondibile, allungato sull'orizzonte.

Phase I of Project Mohole involved drilling near Guadalupe Island, off the coast of Mexico, in spring of 1961.
The ship used was a converted Navy barge that had been fitted with experimental deep-water drilling equipment and a dynamic positioning system invented for the occasion by Willard Bascom, oceanographer and project director.

In addition to teaching, Schneider also pursued a high-profile research career that was highlighted by work in the 1960s on Project Mohole, a nationally funded effort to drill a hole through the earth’s crust beneath the floor of the ocean to reach the interior of the earth.
In addition, evidence drawn from Mohole would be brought to bear on the question of continental drift, which at the time was still controversial.
Because the drilling operations on Mohole were to be carried out in deep water, conventional static anchoring was not an option.

From the point of view of Mohole's proponents in the community, the issue was to maintain clear and competent scientific oversight.
The Mohole Project Office was attached to the Office of the NSF Director, but because of the huge budget and administrative implications of the contract, the coordinator actually reported to NSF's Associate Director for Administration.
Oceanographers were among Mohole's leaders from the project's conception to its demise; but perhaps because of the lack of a clear disciplinary identity for oceanography in NSF at the time, the field escaped much of the blame for its failure.

 Harry Hammond Hess biography
Through these investigations, Hess was able to discern relationships between island arcs, seafloor gravity anomalies, and peridotite, leading him to postulate in 1960 that mantle convection cells were the driving force for seafloor spreading.
Hess was also a primary proponent of the Mohole Project, a 1957 proposal by Walter Munk to drill through the oceanic crust into the Earth's mantle.
At the time of its cancellation by the U.S. Congress in 1966, most of the scientific and engineering problems of ocean drilling had been solved, leading to the later successful scientific ocean drilling by the Deep Sea Drilling Project.
