Precise Hugoniot data were obtained for samples of aluminum, quartz, iron, molybdenum, and low density molybdenum using the impedance matching technique. An underground nuclear explosion drove a nearly planar, 5-TPa shock into a molybdenum standard. Shock velocities were measured with 1.5% to 2.5% accuracies.
