Title: Apollo 14 crewmen show off lunar rocks during meeting with newsmen
Description:
The Apollo 14 crewmen show off some of the largest of the lunar rocks which 
they brought back from the Moon during a through-the-glass meeting with 
newsmen in the Crew Reception Area of the Luanr Receiving Laboratory at the 
Manned Spacecraft Center. Astronaut Alan B. Shepard Jr. (right) leans over
to  view a large basketball-size rock which Astronaut Edgar D. Mitchell
points  out. Astronaut Stuart A. Roosa looks on (near center of the
photograph). Four  of the 14 men quarantined with the Apollo 14 crew look
on in the background  (20373); Mitchell points toward some walnut and
potoato-size rocks taken from  the tote bag at left while Shepard stands
near a large basketball-size sample  (20374); Mitchell (left) holds up a
tote bag in which some of the lunar  samples were stowed while Shepard
looks on (20375).
