Lunar dust from Tranquility base - right where Armstrong and Aldrin stepped first on the moon!
8x10'' photo presentation with attached 2.5mm (bottom length) triangle swatch of tape containing Moon Dust from the Apollo 11 landing site.
The lunar dust originates from the Apollo 11 magazine 'S' Armstrong accidentally dropped on the moon shortly before reentering the lunar module Eagle after his historic first moonwalk.
Terry Slezak then became the first man to touch lunar dust with bare hands while cleaning Mag S (not knowing at that time it was covered in lunar dust). Because of the fear of lunar microbes, he was put into quarantine along with the astronauts who later presented him a large presentation board with the sample of dust.
Comes with a COA - only one available.
Disclaimer: Lunar dust is legal to own when it comes from officially released artifacts that were covered with lunar dust during the flight. Alan Bean has been using lunar dust in his paintings he samples from some of his lunar surface used hardware!
