Greetings Meteorite-List friends!
We cordially invite anyone in the Tucson-area to join us as we celebrate
the 45th Anniversary of Apollo 11's landing on the moon, learn about
current lunar research and next steps in space exploration, too!
_*Everything Lunar: Celebrating the Past, Exploring the Future*_ will be
held at the Lunar & Planetary Laboratory on the University of Arizona
campus on Sunday, July 20 from 10am-4pm.
This is a free, family event with something for everyone! We'll have
activities for children, exhibits about the Moon, Apollo artifacts, and
lectures! For more information and maps see http://www.lpl.arizona.edu/
or contact Maria Schuchardt at 520-621-4861 (email: mariams at lpl.arizona.edu)
The Lunar & Planetary Laboratory was originally founded by Gerard Kuiper
to map the moon. It was quickly enlisted to support the nation's
missions to the moon. Apollo-era scientists Ewen Whitaker and Dr.
Spencer Titley and Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) researchers Dr.
Veronica Bray and Dr. Julia Bodnarik will be available to answer
questions at the July 20th event. See if you can stump Jim Scotti, of
LPL Space Watch fame, who knows (almost) everything about the Apollo
In addition, you will have the rare opportunity to tour LPL's Electron
Microprobe Laboratory. Meteoriticist Dr. Tim Swindle will give an
interesting talk about continuing research on lunar samples. IMCA board
member Dr. Larry Lebofsky will show meteorites to the public and I will
have original Apollo sample photos, notes, and data from Dr. Michael
Drake's research. And there is much more!
Come relive those exciting moments when the whole world celebrated
mankind's first footsteps on the moon!
Hope to see you there!
