The Apollo missions and Moon rocks, 1969-1972
Doyle, P (2017). The Apollo missions and Moon rocks, 1969-1972. Geology Today. 33 (4), pp. 142-147.
On 16 July 1969, three men set off for the Moon; just four days later, two of them planted their feet on its surface. Their objectives: to explore the lunar surface, carry out experiments, and gather geological samples for study. Geology was at the very centre of the Moon missions, and recovery of Moon rocks one of the measures of success. The samples obtained are amongst the most treasured natural artefacts of science.
