Moon-Rocks-Auction

Did you know you can’t legally own moon rocks NASA has collected? Those are considered a National Treasure and ownership defaults to the United States. That’s what makes this Sotheby’s auction so rare. This November one lucky bidder will have the chance to stake claim to three small moon rocks, legally. You see, these pebbles were acquired by Luna 16, a Soviet probe, and presented as a gift to Nina Ivanovna Koroleva, the widow of Sergei Pavolvich Korolev, the man who was the space director the Russian space program. Since that gifting turned the rocks into personal property, they can remain that way and cross the auction block, which is precisely what’s happening. If you drop the $1,000,000+ the moon rocks are expected to fetch, you’ll receive them in a metal case that includes a magnifying glass so you can gaze at something no one else on Earth owns.

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
