Some of our moon rocks are missing

By  

When Apollo 17 returned to Earth in 1973, few realized that it would be decades before humans returned to the moon. The U.S. government handed out moon rocks willy-nilly to foreign leaders and museums, expecting that a return trip would collect more in short order. But it's nearly 40 years later, we still haven't gone back, the value of the lunar minerals have skyrocketed as a result -- and, it turns out, many of those original gifts have gone missing.
