You can now buy moon dust from Nasa’s Apollo 11 mission for $400,000 dollars, but there’s a creepy crawly catch

Moon dust collected in 1969 by Apollo 11 astronauts has just gone up for auction.

The moon dust is from Neil Armstong’s famous Nasa mission.

Bidding has started in the “Remarkable Rarities” auction and will continue until June 23 if critter moon dust tickles your fancy.

In its chip business, profits also plunged when compared to year ago.
