Event Details

Almost nightly people have looked up to the sky and gazed up to the moon.  It has been a source of speculation, romance and mystery.  In the middle twentieth century, Americans walked on the moon and solved some of those mysteries.  

 

Apollo 17 was the last Apollo mission to land men on the Moon. It carried the only trained geologist to walk on the lunar surface, lunar module pilot Harrison Schmitt. Compared to previous Apollo missions, Apollo 17 astronauts traversed the greatest distance using the Lunar Roving Vehicle and returned the greatest amount of rock and soil samples. Eugene Cernan, commander of Apollo 17, still holds the distinction of being the last man to walk on the Moon, as no humans have visited the Moon since December 14, 1972.

 

Tonight we get to look at some of those rocks and compare them to Earth’s comparable rocks.
