First Paragraph

The purpose-built Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP) research vessel Glomar Challenger operated from 1968 through 1983. Its objective was fundamental exploration of the ocean basins. The ship was owned, designed, and built by Global Marine Inc., while Scripps Institution of Oceanography was responsible for the management and operations of the program.
