Extraterrestrial rocks featured at latest ‘star party’ | MTSU Sidelines

Meteorite samples from NASA

MTSU hosted a display of lunar and meteorite samples Friday, which were taken by Apollo missions and loaned to the school directly by the National Aeronautics and Space Association.

Irina Perevalova, an MTSU physics professor, was required to undergo formal training by NASA in order to handle and be placed in charge of the samples. An armed guard was required to be in sight of the lunar samples at all times due to their extreme value.
