APOLLO'S LUNAR ROCKS: WHAT WE LEARNED ABOUT THE MOONLUNAR ROCKS AND THE STORY OF THE MOON
The Apollo lunar landings yielded an abundance of new scientific data on the Moon. The various experiments placed on the surface provided information on seismic, gravitational, and other lunar characteristics. But perhaps the most dramatic result of the missions was to return a total of more than 800 pounds of lunar rock and soil for analysis on Earth. These samples of the Moon offered a deeper appreciation of the evolution of our nearest planetary neighbor.
