he currently has on loan from NASA. This event is open to the public, so
come and check it out!

    Just handspecimen-sized rocks or polished thin sections, too? The lunar basalts have small inclusions of native iron in them that shine as bright as silver under a reflected light microscope.

    Very neat.
