A set of color and black and white photographs depict the gas chromatograph from various angles. In two photographs, a package of Marlboro cigarettes sits beside the instrument, presumably to provide a sense of scale.
The lunar gas chromatograph was developed, under a JPL contract, to analyze lunar soil. Payload reductions meant that this instrument did not fly on the lunar lander, but it met the performance and environmental requirements of Project Surveyor.
