NASA's Missing Astromaterials It seems researchers have sticky fingers when it comes to NASA’s moon rocks and meteorites, as hundreds of samples have gone missing after being loaned out by the US space agency, an audit has revealed. NASA inspector General Paul Martin issued a report detailing weak points in the US space agency such as the agency making loans to researchers who never use the samples, or simply lose track of rare pieces dating back to the first trip to the Moon in 1969. According to NASA records, between 1970 and 2007, 517 loaned astromaterials have been lost or stolen” the report said.  In 2002, 218 samples from the Moon and meteorites were stolen from Johnson Space Centre in Houston but later returned. Earlier this year, one moon rock that had been given up for lost was discovered in a box of former president Bill Clinton’s files and memorabilia, stored at an Arkansas library. Astromaterials include Moon rocks and soil; meteorites from asteroids, Mars, and the Moon; ions from the outer layers of the Sun; dust from comets and interstellar space; and cosmic dust from Earth’s stratosphere.
