NASA Astromaterials staff was one of many exhibitors participating in the event. We shared information about meteorites from the Moon and Mars, Apollo Moon rocks, and enabled the public to experience collecting 3D printed samples of Moon rocks with Apollo replica tools off of a printed LRO map of the Moon.

More than 3000 people stayed for 10-30 minutes interacting with our subject matter experts!
