It was a headline-grabbing heist of NASA proportions. Each year, hundreds of students apply to NASA's prestigious Co-operative Education Program, but only a handful are accepted allowing them to work alongside NASA's top scientists and go on to careers at NASA and elsewhere. In 2000, one Co-op showed an inordinate interest in the cache of moon rocks kept at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, repeatedly visiting the lab to examine them. Then the moon rocks mysteriously disappeared. Moon Rock Heist follows the trail of international intrigue surrounding the recovery of the rocks and reveals how law enforcement finally tracked down the thieves.
