    Lunar Soil Simulant JSC-1 Directly from the Personal Collection of Astronaut John Young, Certified and Signed. A 4" x 4" zip top bag containing a sample of this fine, gray, powdery material; the label has a NASA logo and states: "Developed at NASA/Johnson Space Center, this lunar soil stimulant is very similar in color, texture, composition and particle size to lunar mare soil. It is made from crushed volcanic material from northern Arizona." This material was developed as a result of the Workshop on Production and Uses of Simulated Lunar Materials held in 1991, and was a team effort of the JSC, the University of Texas at Dallas, and Texas A&M University. Its purpose was for studies in support of future human activities on the moon. Excellent condition and from the collection of one of only twelve men to ever walk on real lunar soil.

    Young has certified this item at the top: "From my Personal Collection John Young".
