The Clear Lake Gem & Mineral Society will hold their monthly meeting on Monday, April 16, at 7:30 p.m. at the Clear Lake Park Building located at 5001 Nasa Parkway, Seabrook. Dr. David Kring will present the program synopsis: The 2,500 km diameter South Pole-Aitken Basin on the lunar farside is the oldest and largest impact basin on the lunar surface. This evening, Dr. Kring will discuss the origin of the basin and the potential effects of the impact event on the evolution of the Moon, the implications such an impact may have for the evolution of our own Earth, and how we can probe those scientific issues with future lunar surface missions.
