  • Description

    American Space Agency scientists in Houston, who have been studying the lunar rocks brought back by the Apollo 14 mission, reported a surprise finding on Friday (19 February) -- some of the rocks look as though they have been freshly chipped from larger ones.

    At the Lunar Receiving Laboratory in Houston on Friday, scientists noticed that unlike the smooth rocks brought back from two previous missions to the Moon's surface, those from Apollo 14 have sharp angles and facets that show no erosion.

    One of the Houston scientists spoke to a reporter from the American National Broadcasting Company during a press conference.
