DescriptionLunar Receiving Lab Pack. The Lunar Receiving Laboratory (LRL) facility at NASA's Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center was constructed to quarantine astronauts and material brought back from the Moon. Used during the Apollo program, the LRL was designed to mitigate the risk of back-contamination. Samples of rock, dust, and soil collected by the astronauts were flown directly to the LRL and analyzed in glove-box vacuum chambers. The quarantine requirement was dropped beginning with Apollo 15, and the LRL is currently used for study, distribution and safe storage of lunar samples. This lot contains a package-within-a-package containing five plastic sample bottles, each measuring approximately 2.5" tall and 1" in diameter and topped with a screw-on lid. Designed contain dirt and rock samples from the Moon, these sample bottles are in very fine condition.

As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
