Understanding geological processes on Earth helps planetary geologists learn about how planets, moons and asteroids form and evolve. During your 60-minute visit you will have 30 minutes to explore the exhibits in our Cosmic Courtyard Gallery. The other 30 minutes will be for a mini-workshop where you’ll be introduced to some of the features planetary geologists look at on other planets, current missions focusing on planetary geology and you can try your hand at analyzing rock samples.
