NAMPA — A moon rock brought back from the Apollo 15 mission has landed at the Warhawk Air Museum with several NASA employees from Houston.

The exhibit, which travels in a semi-trailer, also includes a film on future manned missions to the moon and mars.
The “Benefits of Space” exhibit is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through Saturday at the Warhawk Air Museum, 201 Municipal Drive, Nampa.
