‘Moon Bag’ To Fetch Up To $4 Million

It’s not very impressive looking, but the long-lost bag used by U.S. astronaut Neil Armstrong to bring back to Earth the first samples of moon dust in 1969, is expected to sell for up to $4 million when it is auctioned with other space memorabilia next week in New York City. The sale at international art auction house Sotheby’s also features the Apollo 13 flight plan signed by its crew, a spacesuit worn by U.S. astronaut Gus Grissom, and lunar photographs taken by NASA. The auction will be held on July 20, the 48th anniversary of the first moon landing, and organizers hope it will draw large crowds…..Ed
