MOON Exhibit

SUPPORT
Arizona

Explore the science, history and culture of the Moon and how we view it. Learn about the early art of mapping the Moon from sketches to photography, see early books by Copernicus and Galileo and enjoy Moon themes in sci-fi books and poetry.

Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing on July 20, 1969, this exhibit draws from a new acquisition of papers from Ewen Whitaker (1922-2016), Associate Research Scientist at the University of Arizona Lunar and Planetary Laboratory and an expert on the surface and physical features of the Moon. The Whitaker collection includes extensive maps, photographs, books, correspondence and other academic works related to lunar studies. The exhibit also features items on loan from the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, the Museum of Optics at the UA College of Optical Sciences, UA Museum of Art and the Learning Games Initiative Research Archive.
