Moon Poster Set
Our visits to the Moon brought us new scientific understanding about its geologic history and the materials that make up the lunar landscape, but much of the Moon remained unexplored during these landings. Spacecraft mission instruments measure different wavelengths of light reflected off the Moon’s surface. These missions are presenting scientists and engineers with new data about the entire Moon, its features, environment, and materials. With this information we can plan how to use the available materials to support future lunar outposts. Three posters, designed for students in 6th to 9th grade, explore these ideas.
