Missing a few moon rocks

NASA hunts for samples
NASA's Inspector General reports the agency, which has thousands of lunar, meteorite, and (a VERY few) cometary specimens. When it loans them out, though, they don't always come back on time - or at all.  NASA promises that, after hundreds of small but irreplaceable samples vanished since 1970, it will tighten its procedures.
