Morton Smith and Francis West examine a core sample

Morton C. Smith of the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory (LASL) geothermal research team and Francis G. West, LASL geophysicist, examine a core sample taken from a depth of 1,100 meters (3,700 feet) at the Fenton Hill geothermal test site in the Jemez Mountains west of Los Alamos. The core is composed of granitic gneiss intruded by pegmatite and is similar to the rock in which hydraulic fracturing has been accomplished at depths of (10,000 feet), 3,000 meters., Credit Line: Los Alamos National Laboratory, courtesy of AIP Emilio Segrè Visual Archives, Physics Today Collection
