Description

Some of the materials Francis McCubbin works with as the astromaterials curator at NASA’s Johnson Space Center include meteorites that were collected in Antarctica, solar wind samples, pieces of asteroids and comets, and the Apollo rocks brought back from the Apollo Missions in the 70s. We talked to Francis about figuring things out as he went along, being on one of the first research teams to prove there’s water on the moon (!), and the mission impossible style security protecting the astromaterials he works with.
