The NASA Ambassador of Exploration Award presented to James B. Irwin

The Bishop Museum of Science and Nature recently unveiled its newest exhibit: The NASA Ambassador of Exploration Award presented to James B. Irwin who drove a lunar rover on the Moon during the Apollo 15 mission. The award made to Apollo 15 Lunar Module Pilot James B. Irwin includes a Moon rock gathered during the Apollo program. The award was given to Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo astronauts in recognition of their sacrifices and dedication. Each award includes a lunar sample, part of the 842 pounds of Moon rocks and soil returned during the six lunar expeditions that took place from 1969 to 1972. “We are incredibly grateful and honored that the family of Col. Irwin specifically chose The Bishop to display this significant piece of history,” said Matthew D. Woodside, Chief Curator and Director of Exhibitions at The Bishop. The Bishop is located at 201 10th Street West, Bradenton. Visit www.BishopScience.org for information or call 746•4131.
