Woman sues NASA just in case to keep her vial of moon dust
A woman is preemptively suing NASA to keep a vial of moon dust allegedly given to her by Neil Armstrong.
KANSAS — A Tennessee woman is preemptively suing NASA in order to keep a vial of moon dust allegedly given to her by Neil Armstrong.
The lawsuit was filed by Laura Murray Cicco on June 6 at the U.S. District Court in Kansas to decide who legally owns the dust, according to Cincinnati Enquirer.
The woman is challenging NASA's 2011 court case declaration that private citizens cannot own lunar material.
Cicco says in the lawsuit that her father was a friend of Neil Armstrong, and that when Armstrong was an aerospace engineering professor at the University of Cincinnati, he gave the vial to her as a gift.
The lipstick-size vial also came with a note that said, "To Laura Ann Murray — Best of luck — Neal Armstrong Apollo 11."
Well...good move Laura. Now the whole world knows that you have this moon dust — which you definitely could have kept no problem had you only kept your trap shut.
