Moon Rock Redux

If you have been following my site for a while, or have gone back to read my old posts, you will remember the discovery I made in the Solomon Islands. I found a moon rock from the Apollo missions in an open display cabinet at the national museum in Honiara. (I think that post has been read more than any other one I’ve written.)

Before I left the Solomons, I had contacted a few people about the rock in hopes that they would do something about it. Even moving it to a different building and hanging it on the wall would have been enough.

Wan Kong Yew at, a Malaysian national currently living in the Solomons, read my article. He went to the museum and confirmed that moon rock is still there (good) but it doesn’t appear to have moved an inch (bad).

At least the cabinet is now locked.

    Given the number of bloggers who visit the Solomon Islands National Museum….I think it has.

    Perhaps this site (or a sister site) can become a place that anyone who verifies the moon rock remains where it’s supposed to be can let the rest of the world know. Or something like that.
