Science Experiment Left Behind on Moon Still Running

This strikes me as a great way to connect science students with the past: Showing data being generated (well, sort of) by a piece of equipment 35 years old. Science and medicine are so now-now-now/of the moment that the past, even the not so distant past, becomes an opaque blur. But when you actually start finding out about the weirdos who did the heavy lifting to get us this far, it’s a hell of a lot of fun.
