So what new piece of useless trivia have I learnt today to share with you? I have learnt that it is illegal to sell moon rock in the USA. A woman is being held in California after a ‘sting’ operation supported by NASA investigators discovered she was trying to sell moon rock. It is considered to be a national treasure in the US.
Personally I’d like to know how they prove it is authentic moon rock? Does rock have DNA? It could just be a piece of meteorite. As for those moon landing conspiracy theorists I bet they think it’s illegal to sell moon rock because if they got their hands on some they would prove that the moon landings were fake. For the record I do not believe that the moon landings were a conspiracy at all. But obviously we all know that Elvis now lives on the moon and drives the number 11 bus around the Sea of Tranquility.
