The rocks and sediment collected by Apollo astronauts contain vital clues to the formation of Earth and the Moon. Most of this information, including crucial parts of the history of Earth, cannot be learned by studying rocks on Earth because it is so geologically active. Teachers may use these materials to teach lunar geology and landforms, rocks and minerals, and the history and future of lunar exploration. ... Full description.
