Moon Rocks

Hurstville Interpretive Center, Jackson County

Thursday, February 24, 2022

Hold real rocks and soil samples brought back by the Apollo astronauts from the moon in your hand! Dave Gossman of Zwingle and Bruce Droessler of Maquoketa will present about the Apollo missions that collected these samples from the moon and how we got there and back. Following the presentations, participants will be able to view (and hold!) moon rocks and other items from the Apollo missions. At 6:45 pm, a one-hour video will be shown about how the astronauts were trained to be field geologists for their trip to the moon.
