Following a court order issued on Friday (Feb 24), NASA will hand over an Apollo 11 lunar sample bag to an Illinois woman who won it for $995 at a U.S. Marshals Service auction. A judge ruled the space agency was to return the “outer decontamination bag” used to store the first moon rocks that Neil Armstrong collected at Tranquility Base to Nancy Lee Carlson, despite the artifact having been mistakenly sold in February 2015.
