https://hmnh.harvard.edu/cosmic-origins On July 20, 1969, Neil
Armstrong stepped down from the Apollo 11 lunar lander and impressed
the Moon's dusty surface with the first human bootprint. This singular
moment — when humanity set foot on a world outside Planet Earth —
inspired a vibrant new age of scientific and technological research
that has vastly improved the understanding of our planet, solar
system, and wider universe. On July 20, 2019, the Harvard Museum of
Natural History will mark the 50th anniversary of the first manned
mission to the Moon with the unveiling of Cosmic Origins. Visitors to
this new small exhibit — located within our Earth & Planetary
Sciences exhibition — will investigate the origins of and processes
shaping planetary bodies and stars by using touchable specimens,
colorful visuals, and interactive media. Through Nov. 27, 2019, the
exhibit will also feature an original lunar specimen, on loan from
NASA, collected during Apollo 12. Don't miss this rare opportunity to
examine a real Moon rock, and to engage with this dynamic new exhibit.
Cosmic Origins opens to the public on July 20, 2019 at the Harvard
Museum of Natural History. The exhibition is supported by a generous
gift in memory of John P. Huchra.
