It weighs only four ounces, but a new-on-exhibit moon rock looms large at Tellus Science Museum in Cartersville. Tellus claims its long-sought lunar sample is the largest moon rock on exhibit in Georgia. Collected by Astronaut Dave Scott during the Apollo 15 lunar mission in 1971, the original rock weighed about 21 pounds. On permanent exhibit in Tellus’ Science in Motion Gallery, the moon rock is being shown alongside three Apollo artifacts on loan from the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space.
