We were pleased to have Kim Willis join us for the fourth of our opportunities for ANGLeS teams to Meet a NASA Engineer. Kim works at Johnson Space Center where she’s curator of the Apollo lunar samples.
Six Apollo missions landed humans on the surface of the Moon. These astronauts explored the surface of the Moon and collectively collected 382 kg (842 pounds) of lunar rocks, soils, and core samples. Learn details about these six Apollo missions to the lunar surface, how crews collected these precious lunar samples, the initial lunar receiving laboratory where the Apollo astronauts and samples were quarantined, and see where these samples are currently curated by NASA. There was a Q&A period after Kim’s presentation.
