Space Rocks: Moon, Mars, and Beyond

THIS EVENT IS PART OF THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION OF APOLLO 11'S LANDING ON THE MOON. MORE DETAILS ABOUT MOON WEEK AT ANU IN JULY HERE

See and touch fragments of other worlds. This temporary exhibit will display meteorites from as close to home as the Moon, to as far as the Asteroid Belt and beyond. You'll have a chance to see the building blocks of the first planets, learn how our Moon was formed, see how Mars may have once hosted life, and why Earth is unique in this star system. You can also hear the inner workings of other worlds with recordings of earth, moon and marsquakes.

There will be 30 minute sessions between 1-4pm.

Presented in partnership with ACT Government.
