Woman Sues NASA Again Over $2M Moon Rock Bag

It's kinda sad that this person is so greedy that after she sold a moon rock bag for over $1.8 million (she paid under $1,000 for it) she is now suing NASA for $2 million for "diminished value."

Carlson originally purchased the 11.5-inch-long (29-centimeter) "lunar sample return bag" for $995 in February 2015, at an auction held on behalf of the U.S. Marshals Service in Texas. Unaware of the bag's history other than that it had been forfeited by a museum curator indicted for the theft of other space artifacts and that it was described by the Marshals as having been flown on an Apollo mission, Carlson sought the help of Ziegler at the Johnson Space Center in Houston to further identify the bag's provenance.
