1970 Moon Issue of Science

This is not really a science teaching resource, but with all of the excitement about the moon landing I thought this was really cool. If you go HERE you can download a free issue of SCIENCE from January 1970- The Moon Issue. You will be asked to sign up for a free registration to AAAS which also gives you access to all issues of SCIENCE that are at least 1 year old.

Applications for Science Teachers: For starters you can see real research studies based on data from the Moon landing. It is also interesting from a Nature of Science perspective to see the number of scientists who quickly published findings on a wide array of topics. This also seems to help debunk the Moon Landing Hoax idea. It seems pretty unlikely that so many scientists would be or could be involved in such an elaborate hoax. Enjoy!
