Title: Rock sample brought to earth from the Apollo 12 lunar landing mission
Description:
Close-up view of Apollo 12 sample 12,065 under observation in the Manned 
Spacecraft Center's Lunar Receiving Laboratory. This sample, collected
during  the second Apollo 12 extravehicular activity (EVA-2) of Astronauts
Charles  Conrad Jr., and Alan L. Bean, is a fine-grained rock. Note the
glass-lined  pits. An idea of the size of the rock can be gained by
reference to the gauge  on the bottom portion of the number meter.
