#3: US v Davis / Lunar Sample Return Pouch (with Moon Dust!) up for Auction

Selling space relics is not an easy task. In fact, the government may consider it downright illegal. We follow the case of one Californian grandma who was humiliated in a parking lot while trying to sell a moon rock and why she can’t recover her rock but can still sue the government. Kris then talks about possibly the only piece of space dust that can legally be sold. NASA made an inventory mistake and now you can own a piece of history…assuming you win an auction.
