Impact! Pop-up Exhibition
27 February 2013
The Rock Room will be hosting a special one-off pop-up exhibition between 12.30 – 3pm on Friday, March 1st, curated by UCL and Birkbeck PhD students from the Centre for Planetary Sciences.
Impact! will feature NASA images of the Moon and Mars taken from the Regional Planetary Image Facility at UCL, one of only seven centres outside the USA (and the only in the UK) to house the archive of NASA planetary images from the 1960s until the present day.
Visitors will be able to view photos of the Moon from Lunar Orbiter (1966-67) and Apollo missions (1963-72), and compare them to images of Mars taken by the Viking 1 and 2 Missions (1976 – 1980). The exhibition will also feature meteorites from UCL and Birkbeck Collections.
