Lunar Meteorite Up For Auction In Boston

BOSTON (AP) -- Anyone who can't make it to the moon to gather a few lunar rocks now has the opportunity to buy one right here on Earth. A 12-pound lunar meteorite discovered in northwest Africa last year is up for auction by Boston-based RR Auction and could sell for $500,000 or more at the online auction that runs from Thursday until Oct. 18. The meteorite is actually composed of six fragments that fit together like a puzzle.
