Touch the Moon, really

Jun 14, 2011 3:14:00 PM - thestate.com
Children (and adults for that matter) wanting to get up close and personal with a piece of the moon will be able to do so at EdVenture this week.

A nearly 4-billion-year-old piece of moon rock will be on display for visitors to touch as part of NASA’s Driven to Explore traveling exhibit, at the children’s museum, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. today and Wednesday.

The rock sample, which is one of only eight available to the public to touch, was brought to Earth by astronauts of Apollo 17 in 1972, America’s last manned-mission to the moon.

In addition to the moon rock, the multimedia exhibit will explore the challenges of human space exploration, technological advances made by NASA for improving life on Earth and the future of space exploration.

EdVenture is at 211 Gervais St. Admission is $9.50 for children and adults, $8.50 for seniors and military and free for children younger than one and members.
