Lunar samples and data from Apollo transformed our understanding not only of the Moon but of solar system science as a whole. To view the lunar surface is to look back through time, at terrains that record the story of the early development of the Moon and planets. In honor of the Apollo 11 50th anniversary, this series will explore what the Moon has taught us, what it continues to teach us, and what new windows it may yet open in science, technology, and exploration. Join four distinguished speakers as they look at lunar exploration with an eye toward yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
