Dr. James Carter, Pioneering Lunar Geologist, Passes Away

Dr. James L. Carter, geoscientist, and associate professor emeritus at the University of Texas at Dallas, passed away on September 21, 2019, in his home at the age of 82. Dr. Carter was one of the leading geologists on the Apollo mission to the Moon, and played a role in training the Apollo crews in the field of geology. His work led to numerous achievements, including the collection of Genesis Rock, the largest lunar sample at the time. He was later recruited by NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, to pioneer the creation of a simulated prototype for a lunar sample known as JSC-1.
