NASA will pay a company $1 to collect moon rocks

NASA announced Thursday that it will pay $1 to Colorado-based start-up Lunar Outpost to collect a small amount of material on the surface of the Moon. Lunar Outpost is among four firms awarded contracts to retrieve moon soil for the US space agency. The funding is so low because NASA is only paying for the collection of the regolith, not any of the companies’ development or transport costs.

Pretty sure that just means that NASA just doesn't want the regolith that badly. This is a publicity stunt and nothing more.
