NASA To Exhibit Moon Rock In Atlanta And Carrollton, GA
Georgians have the rare chance to touch a nearly
4-billion-year-old piece of moon rock at NASA's Driven to Explore
traveling exhibit, a mobile, multi-media experience that immerses
visitors in the story of NASA. The exhibit will be at the Fernbank
Science Center in Atlanta on Thursday, May 5, and Friday, May 6,
1200-2200 EDT. It also will be at the Mayfest Arts and Crafts
Festival in Carrollton, GA, on Saturday, May 7, 0930-1630.
The centerpiece of Driven to Explore is the opportunity to touch
a lunar rock sample brought to Earth by the astronauts of Apollo 17
in 1972, America's last human mission to the moon. The rock is one
of only eight lunar samples made available for the public to
Driven to Explore allows visitors to learn why we explore,
discover the challenges of human space exploration and how NASA
provides critical technological advances to improve life on Earth.
The exhibit also details the accomplishments of the space shuttle
and the International Space Station.
As the space shuttle approaches retirement, NASA is investing in
the building blocks of a more capable approach to space
exploration, including research and development to increase space
travel capabilities. In support of these efforts, NASA is
performing field tests, designing surface systems and conducting
advanced human research to ensure that future missions are safe,
sustainable and affordable.
