Report  Web desk : LONDON: A piece of moon rock, which measures just four and a half inches (11cm) by 4.75 inches (12cm) inches, has now been put up for sale for $74,838 (£60,000). The tiny fragment was found in Sahara Desert in the Moroccan region in 2014. Experts believe that the moon rock spent tens of millions of years orbiting the Earth after being dislodged in a meteor strike. The rock is believed to be shrapnel that was blasted into space from the surface of the moon when it was hit by a meteoroid travelling through space. 02
