    Getting Up on the Moon Looks Like Fun

    Charlie Duke drives a penetrometer into the soil and falls forward to the ground. It takes three attempts for him to get back up by doing press-ups to a kneeling position before standing.

  10. Motherboard interviews Joe Kloc about his new story The Case of the Missing Moon Rocks.

What drew you to the story of the missing moon rocks?
Well, they seem to attract small-time crime. In every case, the people selling the rocks on the “black” market just sort of stumbled upon them. I like the comedy that ensues when average Joes fall into the world of almost-crime to sell these Cold War artifacts that may or may not be worth $5 million.
