You Can Own a Piece of The Moon!

posted by Paul James -

On the 48th anniversary of Neil Armstrong stepping on the moon, Sotheby's plans to auction a bag containing the first lunar soil samples Armstrong collected. The "Contingency Lunar Sample Return Decontamination Bag," returned to Earth along with the Apollo 11 crew and still contains traces of dust and rock. NASA is not pleased with the sale and even went to court to prevent it.

But a judge ruled the bag's owner could sell it. Sotheby's expects the lunar rock bag to fetch between two-million and four-million dollars.
