NASA to reward private companies for materials excavated from the Moon

NASA has announced to reward those who collect moon rocks and samples over the next four years. The MIT Technology Review reported that the space agency, together with the NASA Shared Services Center (NSSC), has issued a procurement notice. NASA has offered to pay companies and contractors for the collection of between 50g and 500g of ’lunar regolith and/or rock materials’ from the Moon.

Moving materials from space without contaminating them is difficult. The moon rocks from the lunar missions the US performed are still stored in vaccuum and have never been exposed to earth air. Its quite amazing. You can't perform reliable tests if you contaminate the test object after all. Not to mention the risk of foreign contamination being exposed to earth environment.
