Yes it was and still is legal... At least until this agent decided to act.

Florian Noller at Spaceflori.com has been selling this openly for TEN YEARS. And not on the "Black Market" Mr Noller purchased that strip of tape and other space related items in widely publicised space memorabilia auction in Germany in 2001.

NASA was aware of it then, did an investigation of it and it was of no consequence then,and the auction proceeded without this tape being confiscated or the auction of it halted.

Spaceflori.com sold tiny triangles of it, hundreds of them over the last 10 years, and these were even advertised openly at "Collectspace.com." See:


In fact if you go there and do a search of their archives, and forums you will see as of last year these exact Apollo 11 Moon Tape swatches were being sold and traded by members of those forums.

It was never a "Black Market" or "under the table operation. as is widely reported in the viral Intent news stories, NY Times in particular.

Why the fuss now?.. Makes me wonder if some official is attempting to justify his job.

Make a big splash over nothing... All to make a point.. And maybe make a precedent over nothing.

I thought the dust on the tape was the only legal to own and sell NASA lunar
