METEORITES FROM THE MOON

Code: 000018
Price: 3,000.00 THB (Ref. 100.00 USD)
Description:

Lunar specimens originate from the Northwest Africa (NWA) 4483 meteorite.

The Moon (Latin: Luna) is Earth's only natural satellite, and the fifth largest moon in the Solar System. The average centre-to-centre distance from the Earth to the Moon is 384,403 km which is about thirty times the diameter of the Earth. The Moon has a diameter of 3,474 km slightly more than a quarter that of the Earth and a little bit smaller than the length across the United States. This means that the volume of the Moon is close to 1/50th that of Earth. The gravitational pull at its surface is about 1/6th of Earth's. The Moon makes a complete orbit around the Earth every 27.3 days, and the periodic variations in the geometry of the Earth–Moon–Sun system are responsible for the lunar phases that repeat every 29.5 days.

The Moon is the only celestial body to which humans have travelled and upon which humans have landed. The first artificial object to escape Earth's gravity and pass near the Moon was the Soviet Union's Luna 1, the first artificial object to impact the lunar surface was Luna 2, and the first photographs of the normally occluded far side of the Moon were made by Luna 3, all in 1959. The first spacecraft to perform a successful lunar soft landing was Luna 9, and the first unmanned vehicle to orbit the Moon was Luna 10, both in 1966. The United States (U.S.) Apollo program achieved the only manned missions to date, resulting in six landings between 1969 and 1972. Human exploration of the Moon ceased with the conclusion of the Apollo program, although several countries have announced plans to send people or robotic spacecraft to the Moon.

A real moonrock - Lunar Meteorite NWA 4881 - Size S : approx. 8mg
 
Here's your chance to own a real moonrock at an unbeatable price : 
 
Lunar meteorites are among the most popular and sought-after meteorites, the total weight of lunar meteorites ever found is incredibly low compared to usual meteorites, thus realizing per gramm prices up to $25000 !
NWA 4881 was found in the Sahara desert and classified as a feldspathic granulitic breccia, similar samples of which had beenrecovered at most Apollo lunar highland sites. 
 
Frequently asked : 
 
How does lunar material actually come to earth ?
The moon is constantly hit by meteorites itself and with no atmosphere and little gravity larger impacts can always eject lunar rocks into space where some material gets caught by the gravity of earth which ultimately catches the rock and it comes down as a meteoriteto earth. 
 
How do you know it's real lunar material ?
Scientists and universities all around the world are examining meteorites and compare them with known lunar material, e.g. samples collectedduring the Apollo missions. The composition of gases and isotopes found is so unique that they can say for sure the material originated fromthe moon. 
 
The moonrock comes in a plastic box which is 2x1 inch in size and can be opened, of course, to touch your piece of the moon !
 
A PERFECT AND UNUSUAL GIFT IDEA !
