From the Moon: Mapping & Exploration

November 14, 2011 - March 31, 2012

From the Moon: Mapping & Exploration

From the Moon: Mapping & Exploration addresses our visual perceptions of the Moon, from Earth and from space, and demonstrates how advances in optical technologies have increased our understanding over time. This is an exhibition exploring our relationship to the Moon through the lens of the sciences. From Galileo’s first observations to today’s powerful telescopes, this exhibition will include a broad range of man’s attempts at mapping and understanding lunar history. A key component will be NASA’s documentation of the Apollo lunar landings as well as current research and missions. The centerpiece of the exhibition will be a Moon rock collected during the Apollo 15 mission from June to August 1971. Tours of the exhibition will be available. The exhibition will be housed at the College of Charleston’s New Science Center Building and at the Special Collections Department of the Marlene and Nathan Addlestone Library, 3rd Floor, 205 Calhoun Street.
