'Moon Rock Hunter' on quest to track down Apollo gifts

Jun 16, 2019 - 11:35 PM

Lawyer and retired NASA special agent Joseph Gutheinz Jr is on a mission to find moon rocks that went missing after being given as gifts to nations

Joseph Gutheinz, an attorney known as the "Moon Rock Hunter," poses in his office on May 22, 2019 in Friendswood, Texas. Gutheinz has long been dedicated to tracking down missing Apollo moon rock samples. - After Neil Armstrong took a "giant leap for mankind" on the Moon nearly 50 years ago and collected rocks and soil along the way, Richard Nixon presented lunar souvenirs to every nation -- 135, at the time. Dozens of the "goodwill" moon rocks -- some only the size of a grain of rice, others as big as a marble -- have since gone missing, and Joseph Gutheinz Jr is on a mission to find them.

Apollo moon rocks help transform understanding of the universe

Jun 16, 2019 - 11:10 PM

While lunar samples have been in NASA hands for 5 decades, new discoveries are still being made

Moon rocks are on display at the Johnson Space Center in Houston on May 23, 2019. - Moon rocks look rather nondescript -- they are often gray in color -- but for NASA planetary scientist Samuel Lawrence, they are the "most precious materials on Earth." What is certain is that the lunar samples first gathered by Apollo 11's Neil Armstrong nearly 50 years ago have helped transform our understanding of the cosmos. (Photo by Chris Lefkow / AFP)
