Space memorabilia auction launched in US

People get unique opportunity to own something from the moon as auction gets underway in New York.

    An auction house in New York City has started selling space memorabilia, including rare items covered in lunar dust, giving people the unique opportunity to own something from the moon.

    Items from the Apollo 11 mission, the first moon landing in history, are especially popular. They include an American flag worth an estimated $20,000-$30,000.

    Space suits are expected to fetch more than $25,000, mainly because they have particles of moon dust.
