Woman tried to sell £1m moon rock… to NASA

275x250.jpgA woman tried to sell a purported moon rock for £1m… to an undercover NASA investigator who was working with police.

Authorities in California say the woman arranged to meet the buyer at a restaurant so that he could examine it.

But what she didn't realise was that he actually worked for Nasa and had contacted police because it's illegal to sell bits of the moon in the US.

This is because all lunar samples - and more then 2,000 of them were brought back from space missions - are considered national treasures.
 
NASA, who've been investigating the case for several months, are now working to determine whether the 'moon rock' is the real deal… if it is the punishment could be out-of-this-world.
