The Moon Rocks

This rock is one of the smallest pieces of space memorabilia at the California Science Center. It is just a tiny piece of rock weighing 1.6g, but has great significance – it was picked on the moon during the Apollo 11 “one small step for man” lunar landing. It belongs to pioneering astronaut Buzz Aldrin and is on loan to the science centre​.​
