There, lead researcher on a new research paper J.J. Bellucci showed evidence for the first terrestrial meteorite ever discovered – on our moon or anywhere else, for that matter. The rock was first retrieved from our moon by the crew of Apollo 14, the eighth human-piloted mission in the United States Apollo program, and the third ever to land on our planet’s own moon.
So if what these researchers hypothesize is true, Apollo 14 astronauts (back in February of 1971) traveled all the way to the Moon to pick up rocks, one of which originated on Earth. They can now be called the greatest team of rock retrievers of all time.
