| No Comments

Moon rocks from the Apollo 11 moon mission were discovered in a storage area of the Veteran's Service Building in St. Paul, the Star Tribune reported.

President Richard Nixon gave tiny samples of moon rocks to all states and many foreign leaders after the astronauts on the mission brought back almost 50 pounds of rocks and dirt, the Pioneer Press reported.

Minnesota was one of 12 states to misplace the fragments given to them by the president, Joseph Gutheinz said to the Pioneer Press.
