Alshibli Contributes Photos to Arabic Space Museum in Kuwait
Research photos taken by CEE Professor Khalid Alshibli for his geotechnical research will be used as part of a permanent visual display at a world-class space museum currently under construction in the Al-Sha’ab district of Kuwait City, Kuwait.
The photos depict macroscopic images of the lunar regolith simulant, which was created to mimic the geotechnical properties of lunar regolith, since actual lunar soil is not available to most researchers due to the small collection samples brought from Apollo missions.
