Old rocks, new information

Apollo 17 at the rim of Shorty Crater, December 1972

They're still studying the moon rock samples brought back by all 6 Apollo missions because they saved them, knowing that the technology to study them would improve greatly.  I heard this delightful tidbit on the Public Radio show, StarDate, out of the University of Texas McDonald Observatory.  So fun to think that something my dad was involved in decades ago is actually still going on (and on).
