RR Auction estimates the lot will fetch $ 400,000. The bidding will last until June 23 this year.
Lunar dust from a sample of the planet brought to Earth in 1969 by Apollo 11 astronauts, who became the first humans to step on it, is ready for auction. Space writes about it.
The dust is extracted from the stomachs of the cockroaches, so the lot includes three carcasses of insects. Bidding opened on May 26 and will last until June 23.
“Every time we show something from Apollo 11, it’s definitely exciting because it’s the most important mission, but when you get something like cockroaches fed lunar material, it just shows how different Apollo program, ”said RR Auction CEO Bobby Livingston.
Remember that earlier astronomers received the most detailed picture of the moon’s surface.
