Satirical seal for the Lunar Sample Analysis Planning Team
In his autobiography Gerald Wasserburg describes the image: "The Great Seal of LSAPT issued during Apollo 16 and used as a pass to the LRL. Persons shown are approved, overfed PI; poor, hungry, pleading unapproved scientist; and the LSAPT goddess doing late distribution of Apollo 15 samples of only one type (which investigators did not request). Jim Lovell and Tony Calio are holding up LSAPT, the cherubs are Paul W. Gast and G. J. Wasserburg. Created by John A. Wood during his term as deputy director (under commission to the LSAPT) using the government-supplied presentation pad, magic marker, and rubber cement in the leaky trailer."
