Joe Biden’s office also holds another interesting item – a moon rock. NASA has loaned a Moon rock for display in the Oval Office of the White House at the request of the Joe Biden administration. The Moonrock now sits in the Oval Office in symbolic recognition of earlier generations’ ambitions and accomplishments, and support for America’s current Moon to Mars exploration approach. The “Lunar Sample 76015,143” is from the Lunar Sample Laboratory Facility at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, the US space agency said. pollo 17 astronaut Ronald Evans and moonwalkers Harrison Schmitt and Eugene Cernan, the last humans to set foot on the Moon, chipped this sample from a large boulder at the base of the North Massif in the Taurus-Littrow Valley, 3km from the Lunar Module, according to the inscription on the display case.
