We were looking forward to seeing you visit the Astrogeology Science Center, but as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, we are closed to the public until further notice.

The Astrogeology Science Center priority is to continue the important work of the Department of the Interior and the USGS, while also maintaining the health and safety of our employees and community.  Based on guidance from the White House, the CDC, and state and local authorities, we are shifting our operations to a virtual mode and have minimal staffing within our offices. If you need additional assistance, please contact Justin Hagerty,
