Speaker: Devon Powell

Location: Mammoth Conference Room, SUSB 3036

Abstract

A mere 13 nanoparsecs from Earth, the Moon is our closest neighbor and the only celestial body (besides Earth) that humans have explored in person. At today's SASS talk I explore the origins, impact on human culture, exploration (and potential exploitation), and more fun facts about the Moon.
