Show and Tell: Moon Rock at Market Hall Museum
24th July 2019 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
This time 50 years ago, men had landed on the Moon for the first time and returned safely to Earth. After five more successful missions the programme stopped, and no-one has returned ever since. One of the legacies of NASA’s Apollo missions was a large quantity of rock and soil from the lunar surface, which has shed light on the history of the Moon and our own planet. This talk focuses on some lunar samples that are on display in the museum, and similar rocks found closer to home, here on Earth.
