Dr. David Kring, a senior staff scientist at the Lunar and Planetary Institute, will present a public lecture in the Distinguished Lecture Series of the Houston Museum of Natural Science on Tuesday, May 24, 2016, at 6:30 p.m.

In “Lunar Exploration, a Captivating Science,” Kring will explain why the Moon is the best and most accessible place to explore the origin and evolution of the entire solar system, including the earliest evolutionary phase of our own planet, Earth.

Kring’s research explores the origin of the solar nebula and its evolution into a geologically active planetary system. He is the Principal Investigator of the Center for Lunar Science and Exploration, a member of the NASA Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute. Kring will present an additional lecture, entitled “Threat of Impact:  Update,” on June 30.

Tickets for the lecture are $18.00 ($12.00 for members). The Houston Museum of Natural Science is located at 5555 Hermann Park Drive, Houston TX 77030.
