Moon Rock

The exhibit featured a moon rock collected on the Apollo 15 mission.

This is a fragment of lunar sample 15058 [direct link to 3.0 megabyte PDF]. 15058 was cut into several sections, and one corner [direct link to 1.1 meg PDF] was subsequently cut into four display samples, the fragment on display being named "15058,188".

The Lunar and Planetary Institute has many photos of the original 15058 sample, as well as photos of the various sections into which 15058 was cut. NASA photo S71-60657 shows the corner of 15058 from which sample 188 was cut. Photos S76-24635, S76-24637, S76-24638, and S76-26075 show sample 188 itself.
