Long Lost Moon Rocks Found

Long Lost Moon Rocks Found

As per reports, it has been revealed that a few moon rocks were brought from the Apollo 11 mission in 1969. They were then presented to the then Alaskan Governor Keith Miller, who thought the Alaska Transportation Museum to be the right place for these rocks.

The rocks were kept in an acrylic type covering, which was later attached with plague. The stones were safe till fire broke in the museum. Since then, stones have been missing, but some have said that they have seen stones intact in plaque.

It is now being said that the stones have been found and they are at the right place. It was in 2010 when Coleman Anderson said that he was the one, who had found the stones from the debris of the fire. This was the reason that he was found to be claiming for the stones.

It has been found that Anderson has filed a case, so that it can get the ownership of the stones. Anderson said that he has complete right one the stones, but he would not mind selling them back to the government. It is now that the Alaska Government has to find a new place where it can keep stones.
