NASA Moon Rocks on Display in Las Vegas
News

LAS VEGAS -- The College of Southern Nevada is inviting the public to view a moon rock collection on loan from NASA.

The viewing will be held this week. In all, about 800 pounds of moon rocks were collected between the first manned moon landing in 1969 and the last in 1972. Most remain in storage in NASA facilities, but NASA encased a small number of the rocks in clear plastic for educational purposes.

That's what will be on display at the College of Southern Nevada.
