The Apollo missions to the Moon provided the first ever samples from a planetary body that were collected in a geologic context. Now with data from Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO), Dr. Noah Petro will discuss re-evaluating those samples in a local and regional context which provides improved understanding for what those samples represent.
