Yes, really. At the NASA visitor center, they have an exhibit of moon rocks brought back by the Apollo missions. One of them is epoxied into a clear plastic container with a slot for visitor's hands, so we can touch the rock. So I did. This was during our visit to Texas in late February, just before the pandemic hit the U.S. and the lockdown was imposed.

Anyway, I did the best I could with the plastic barriers.  Quite a thrill to actually touch a piece of the moon.

For the geologically inclined, here are several more moon rocks. The first one looks like very old meat loaf in cross-section...

Olympus E-M5 and Panasonic 20/1.7.  Enjoy!
