Moon Rock (Lunar Sample #15499) on display at The Carnegie Science Center (second floor near the Henry Buhl, Jr. Planetarium), beginning in December of 2022 for at least five years, in conjunction with the newly-opened exhibit: "Mars: The Next Giant Leap". This lunar sample was collected during the mission of Apollo 15, 1971 July 26 to August 7. One of the two astronauts to land on the Moon during this mission was Lunar Module Pilot James B. Irwin, a native of the Beechview section of Pittsburgh. Commander David R. Scott was the other astronaut who landed on the Moon during the Apollo 15 mission; Command Module Pilot Alfred M. Worden remained in orbit in the Apollo Command Module. Information on other Pittsburgh displays of Moon Rocks, including two at the original Buhl Planetarium and Institute of Popular Science / Buhl Science Center in 1970 and 1989.
