The moon rocks are gone. But, please keep in mind that our “year of the Moon” is far from over: we’ll still be wrapping up the Summer Reading Program on 8/23, we’re scheming for a Skype visit by a NASA astronaut, and we have LOTS more rockets to launch!
That being said, it’s time for some thank yous.
Thanks to all of you who came to see the samples, to our Board of Trustees (who allowed me to get the training and experience needed), to the (now disbanded, sadly!) EFFORT teen group who helped me with the tech stuff, to all our Community Partners (too many to list!), and to Andy and Eve at NASA, who prepared and certified me to bring the Moon to Corinth!
Yes, the lunar samples have arrived! Come check out this rare opportunity to be up close and personal with rock samples brought back from the moon!
