Greetings Meteorite-List friends and lunar meteorite admirers,
Before we identified lunar meteorites that collided with Earth, the only
samples of the moon for research came from the Apollo and Luna missions.
_We invite you to enjoy __*Apollo 11*_, a new film premiering this
Friday at The Loft Cinema in Tucson, Arizona. It contains
never-before-seen footage from this historic mission to the moon. Watch
it on the biggest screen in southern Arizona (perhaps all of Arizona?)
and feel the adventure as you ride along with Neil Armstrong, Buzz
Aldrin, and Michael Collins. (Be sure to select "screen 1" showtimes).
See here for more information: https://loftcinema.org/film/apollo-11/
Staff from the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory will greet you before the
evening showings on Friday and display moon maps made by Gerard Kuiper's
team that helped determine landing sites and assisted astronauts with
crater identification. We will also display modern moon globes and a
disk from the University of Arizona's Bicentennial Moon Tree whose seeds
traveled to the moon and back on Apollo 14.
In addition, for LPL's _Apollo50 Celebration on July 20, 2019_, we are
looking for those who worked on some aspect of the Apollo missions. We
want to hear your story! Contact Maria Schuchardt at
mariams at lpl.arizona.edu if you would like to share your contribution or
a family member's contribution.
