Astronomy Research & Data / Moon Rocks


Broward College's Central Campus Astronomy faculty members are qualified to handle the moon rocks from NASA. We are able to attain the samples through NASA's program to use in the lab for student study.

The following photographs were taken from a binocular microscope through the lucite casing surrounding the rock and soil samples. Each micrograph has a magnification of approximately 500x.
