Today I visited the Patuxent River Naval Air Museum in Lexington Park, Maryland.
While interviewing Dan Bramos, we discuss their newest exhibit addition: a moon rock sample! Learn about how these stardust samples are collected, who gets to have them, and a NASA intern who attempted to get rich from black market lunar sales.
We also discuss the X-47A Pegasus mockup and the extensive work behind transporting this "UFO" across the United States, and where it even became part of a Christmas parade during transport!
