CMS Students Learn about the Moon

Recently, students had the opportunity to learn about the moon.  Three stations were set up for students to learn about the moon and its surface.  The highlight of the program was the lunar disk on loan from NASA. The six Apollo missions that landed astronauts on the Moon returned a collection of rocks and sediment samples weighing 382 kilograms and consisting of more than 2,000 separate samples.  The lunar disk contained small samples of lunar material. Descriptions of the samples were discussed. Students were able to use a digital microscope to get a closer look at the samples.
