Moon Rock Auction

A bag containing dust and rocks from the lunar surface is expected to fetch some astronomical bids when it goes up for auction on July 20. Sotheby’s, which is hosting the auction, estimates the sample bag, which was used by Neil Armstrong to collect soil samples on the Apollo 11 mission and still contains moon dust and small rocks, will sell for between $2 million and $4 million. The samples were the first ever collected from the moon.
It’s an exceptionally rare piece of history. Virtually everything from that historic mission is held by the Smithsonian, but a recent court ruling allowed this bag to be the only privately held artifact, says Sotheby’s.
