A big chunk of the Moon which became a lunar meteorite just sold for over $600,000
Getting your hands on a piece of the Moon is pretty darn difficult for most of us. Some lunar missions have brought samples back from the Moon's surface, but those are typically held by scientists and museums so they can be studied and shown off.
Recently, a rather large piece of Earth's only natural satellite ended up on the auction block, but it wasn't brought back by astronauts. This large, fragmented chunk of the Moon actually fell to Earth all on its own, and now it's fetched the incredible price of $612,500.
