Have you ever wondered what the moon is made of (other than cheese) or how it was formed? Have you ever noticed that there are light- and dark-colored parts of the moon? Do you want to see and touch a real moon rock?
Jamey Jones, a faculty member in the UALR Earth Sciences Department, will give a public talk titled “Geology of the Earth’s moon” on Thursday, March 12, at 4:30 pm in Fribourgh Hall Room 101. He will also discuss and display samples of lunar rocks and soil collected during the Apollo missions. The samples are currently on loan from NASA.
All are invited. Refreshments will be served at 4:15 pm outside the lecture hall. The talk is sponsored by the Department of Earth Sciences and the UALR Geology Club.
