Moon rock hunter closes in on tracking down missing stones

Moon rocks are encased in acrylic and mounted on a wooden plaque at the Clark Planetarium in Salt Lake City. A former NASA investigator who has spent more than a decade tracking missing moon rocks is closing in on his goal of finding all 50 lunar samples gifted to U.S. states after Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon. In recent weeks, two more of the moon rocks that dropped off the radar after the 1969 Apollo 11 mission have been located in Louisiana and Utah.
