If you happen to be in the Tucson area next week, you might enjoy this
free event as an interesting way to connect several interests at once!

You will also be treated to an amazing special exhibit about the moon,
moon maps and atlases, and the Apollo program that contains historical

of Modern Planetary Science and describes the life of a man who lived
through some of the most dramatic events of the twentieth century and
ended up creating a new field of scientific research, planetary science.
As NASA and other space agencies explore the solar system, they take
with them many of the ideas and concepts first described by Gerard P.

Derek W. G. Sears was a professor at the University of Arkansas for
thirty years and is now a senior research scientist at NASA. He has
published widely on meteorites, lunar samples, asteroids, and the
history of planetary science.
