EXCITING rare samples of moon rocks and a collection of impressive meteorites landed at St Stephen's Community Academy, Launceston, on Wednesday for a short visit.

Students were able to enjoy a unique, interactive experience of astronomy during their lessons. Highlights included getting up close and personal with some hand-sized meteorites, enabling students to touch a real piece of space.

Included in the educational pack were moon rocks from the Apollo 15, 16 and 17 missions and a 4.56 billion-year-old meteorite.
