In 2001 NASA investigators bravely stopped some dust that came from the moon being sold in an auction in St. Louis.
I know that sounds like the plot to really bad made for TV film that you would expect to see on channel 5 or even worse movies 4 men but it actually happened.
According to the BBC news website “it is illegal to possess moon dust or moon rocks in the USA”.
How massively arrogant of them.
Just because they stuck a flag in the moon over 40 years ago, does not by any means allow them to say it is illegal to possess a rock? Although that didn’t stop the state of California from registering the area where the Apollo mission landed part of their very own historical resource.
What if a chunk of the moon fell to the Earth after a collision with an asteroid?
15 years in the slammer. Probably.
The moon does not belong to America.
It belongs to the Clangers!
Now back off Armstrong or the soup dragon will have your hand off!
