From the moon to Kansas to Sotheby’s: a $2 million bag?

This is the Rembrandt hanging on a garage sale, shares of Apple Inc. found in the grandmother’s office.

What about some ideas of moon dust? The real trick. Vintage Apollo 11. Neil Armstrong, 1969.

What could have been a monumental opportunity for the man who transformed a planetarium in Hutchinson, Kansas., Into a world-class museum space (and then served two years of federal time to sell some of his artifacts), or himself Cosmosphere Center and Space, instead belongs to a rock-love lawyer who got lucky with a very neglected online auction for $ 995.

Although NASA never wanted lunar rocks or dust from the surface of the moon exchanged in the open market, the memory space botched stories that a generation ago, have somehow lost a price.

Later, the lawyer fought against the sacking of the person from NASA confirmed with pieces of real moon.

This summer, the sales agency with the golden will auction of Sotheby’s “Lunar Samples Return Bag” – an Apollo 11 case still inlays dust from the moon and rocks in its fabric – for the offering. The auction house plans to go north of $ 2 million for Moonshot relic.

The first lunar walker Armstrong tucked the briefcase into a pocket of his spacesuit after taking samples of the surface after his “leap for humanity”.

The scientists back on their home planet would study the dust had been hidden. However, the agency could land a man on the moon could not keep something that was used during the trip.

The zipper bag would eventually be discarded with other Apollo detritus, Cosmosphere direction the basement and would land in its former garage director.

When the museum manager, Max Ary was later convicted of selling Cosmosphere goods and carrying the product, most of his memorable items were captured, stored for a decade and then sold to pay his fines and restitution to the Cosmosphere .

Two years ago, the US Marshals Service put the bag in the auction with a launch key for a Soviet Soyuz T-14 spacecraft and a headrest for an Apollo command module. Nancy Lee Carlson, a real estate lawyer Inverness, Ill., The ripped on a whim.

She was the only bidder, probably because there was no indication that this was a dust from the moon or flew the first mission to touch the satellite of the original inhabited Earth.

Only after she was sent to Johnson Space Center in Houston to authenticate the actual value of the object is certified. After NASA confirmed that the Apollo 11 wine bag, he refused to return the wallet to Carlson. NASA has argued that he had never intended to give the artifact, and the space agency did not let go.

So he went on. In December, the J. Thomas Marten in Wichita district judge ruled that although the commission service sale was a mistake, the government had no power to reverse the purchase. It was hers.

In February, Carlson took security guards in Houston to remove the bag and held the other Sotheby auction – this one with the true value of the transparent pouch.

South Korea’s Moon Orders Probe After Missile Shield Surprise

Earlier statements from the Defense Ministry – including a conference given to the president last week – have confirmed the deployment of only two launchers for the area’s high altitude defense system, or THAAD.

Moon’s predecessor, Park Geun-hye, approved the deployment of THAAD, which it said was necessary to protect South Korea against the growth of North Korean nuclear and missile threats. During her election campaign, Luna criticized the anti-democratic decision and called for a parliamentary review and debate on the issue. He also tried to understand China, which opposes the deployment, alleging security reasons.

The first two mobile launchers arrived in South Korea in March and have deployed in Seongju County, southeast of Seoul. A single unit of THAAD comprises six mobile launchers and 48 interceptor missiles, as well as ground and radar control systems, according to the Ministry of Defense website.
