A bible that has sat on the moon's surface is being sold by the RR Auction House. Dubbed a "moon bible," the piece starts at a minimum bid of $5000.
A total of 300 bibles made it into the cosmos during the Apollo 14 trip to the moon (although only a 100 made it to the lunar surface).
The bibles also traveled on the ill-fated Apollo 13 mission, which aborted its moon visit in order to safely return to Earth.

And the Bible flew over the moon.
Ok, I know that in the nursery rhyme it is the cow that flew over the moon. But apparently so did the Bible when it was put on microfilm and carried on the Apollo 14 space capsule. And you can own it now for a bid of $5000 or more. Here is the story.
