NASA: Give Us Back Our Moon Dust And Cockroaches

NASA wants its moon dust and cockroaches returned. 

  • The space agency took legal action to halt the sale of moon dust collected during the 1969 Apollo 11 mission.
  • It was subsequently fed to cockroaches and fish in an experiment to see if the lunar rock was toxic.
  • A NASA lawyer told the auction company that the material still belongs to the federal government. 
  • It was expected to sell for at least $400,000 but was pulled from the auction block on Thursday.
  • An entomologist at the University of Minnesota, who was part of the experiment years ago, never returned the moon rock and cockroaches to NASA.
  • Have you ever fought to get something important returned to you? (maybe during a divorce, break-up, or family feud)
