End Time: 5:00 pm

General Admission

Description:

Just like on Earth, water will be a crucial resource on the moon. Transporting water and other goods from Earth to the moon’s surface is expensive. Finding natural resources, such as water ice, on the moon could help expedite lunar exploration. Learn how a team of NASA scientists smashed two SUV-sized rockets into the lunar surface with LCROSS (Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite) in hopes of finding new proof of lunar water.

Come to the January New Mexico PBS Science Café and watch a segment of NOVA scienceNOW Moon Smasher and then join in a discussion with Dr. Zachary D. Sharp, geochemist and Regents Professor at the University of New Mexico. Dr. Sharp will discuss his findings from his research on whether there is water in the moon’s mantle.

Admission to the café is free, but a reservation is required. RSVP to Rose Poston at 277-2396 or rposton@newmexicopbs.org. Seats are limited and available on a first-come first-served basis.
