[http://carnegiescience.edu/sites/www.ciw.edu/files/Maria%20Zuber.jpg?1375973051]<http://carnegiescience.edu/events/lectures/old_moon_new_moon>Dr. Maria T. Zuber of the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology will be giving a free lecture about the Moon tomorrow night!

Since before the first single-celled organisms, the Moon has illuminated the night sky. Although the Moon is our nearest neighbor, it is far enough away that landing on it represented the pinnacle of human achievement. Studying the Moon helps us learn how other rocky planets formed and developed. Dr. Zuber will discuss our evolving understanding of the Moon from GRAIL, a dual-spacecraft mission that mapped the lunar interior from crust to core.

This event is co-hosted by the Carnegie Institution for Science's Department of Terrestrial Magnetism and NASA, and it will be held at the Carnegie Institute in Washington, D.C.
