40 years ago: KU professor to study moon dust

August 17, 2009


Edward Zeller, the Kansas University geology professor due to study moon dust from the Apollo 11 landing, was told the nature of the material for his experiments probably had little likelihood to produce much of a new finding. Zeller said he would ask future astronauts to roam farther from their space ship for dust that was not as “disturbed” as that in the 1969 landing area.

Aug. 28 was to be the first day of the 1969-70 public school year here.
