“Meet a NASA Engineer” — Charis Krysher

The fourth of our opportunities for ANGLeS teams to Meet a NASA Engineer will take place on Wednesday, May 22! We’re pleased to be joined by Charis Krysher, a Johnson Space Center astromaterials curation processor who works with Apollo lunar rocks and meteorites. Six Apollo missions landed humans on the surface of the Moon. These astronauts explored the surface of the Moon and collectively collected 382 kg (842 pounds) of lunar rocks, soils, and core samples. Learn details about these six Apollo missions to the lunar surface, how crews collected these precious lunar samples, the initial lunar receiving laboratory where the Apollo astronauts and samples were quarantined, and see where these samples are currently curated by NASA. There will be a Q&A period after Charis’s presentation.
