A display of moon rocks that disappeared from an Alaska museum after an arson fire nearly four decades ago has been returned to the state following the settlement of a lawsuit by a man who claimed he rescued the rocks from the rubble.
The mystery of Alaska's missing moon rocks has been solved. Getting them back to a state museum likely will depend on a judge.
Anderson claimed he entered the "debris area" as crews removed garbage, discovered the moon rock plaque covered by melted materials, and took it home.
He sued for clear title but said he would be willing to sell them to the state.
