Bringing the Moon to Rider

One of the wonderful programs run by NASA is the Lunar and Meteorite Disk Program, which allows educators the opportunity to borrow samples of moon rocks collected by Apollo astronauts, along with some meteorites recovered all over the globe.  I used the moon rocks as part of my introductory Astronomy class here at Rider, and gave my students a chance to examine pieces of other worlds.  Adam Grybowski put together a nice article for the News@Rider detailing our class.
