Make Space! A Piece Of The Moon Is Up For Sale

So far, there is only 650 kg of moon rock in total that's been discovered on Earth.

The moon rock weighs in at just under 30 pounds (13.5 kilograms) and is the fifth-largest piece of the moon on Earth, the statement said.

To promise the Moon to someone you love is a cliché, however, you can now buy a piece of Moon and express your love to the person you adore the most in this universe, as one of the largest lunar meteorite valued at $2.49 million (almost Rs 19 crore) has been put on a private sale on Thursday at Christie's, the world's leading art business.

Those who are interested and have a couple extra million dollars can check out the lunar rock and other private sales from Christie's here. All of the large craters found on the surface of the Moon were created by such impacts. The exact date of the shower is unknown, but it has been determined that it was responsible for at least 30 known lunar meteorites. 'Weighing over 13.5kg, it is much larger than any example returned by the Apollo programme'. "Nothing is traced back to the Apollo missions being so large", said James Hyslop, Christie's Head of Science & Natural History at CNN via email.

Madonna tests positive for coronavirus
Madonna is planning to "breathe in the COVID-19 air" after testing positive for coronavirus antibodies. At the moment, the CDC has said it's unclear if the anti-bodies shield one from another infection.

Scientists identify Moon rocks by their specific textural, mineralogical, chemical and isotopic signatures. It is called lunar meteorite. In addition, Moon rocks contain gases captured from the solar wind with isotope ratios very different from the same gases found on Earth.

Christie's is also planning to auction a 13-piece attractive set of iron meteoroids, worth 1.4 million pounds.

According to a report by Reuters, the moon rock was probably struck off the surface of the moon by a collision with an asteroid or comet and then showered down on the Sahara desert. It is thought to have been formed 4.5 billion years ago when a Mars-sized body collided with earth. An impact event ejected what was to become the Gibeon mass into interplanetary space before its descent to Earth, exploding in the atmosphere and raining down on what is now the Kalahari Desert.
