Description
 
Materials originating from extraterrestrial environments, commonly referred to as astromaterials, are a rare and limited resource that serve an important role for research, education, and as a legacy for future generations. The Nat. Aeronautics and Space Admin. (NASA) holds a collection of astromaterials. To promote investigation of the origin and evolution of the solar system and the nature and distribution of life, NASA both studies these materials itself and loans astromaterial samples to researchers worldwide. It also loans lunar and meteorite displays to schools, libraries, museums, and planetariums. NASA has been experiencing loss of astromaterials since lunar samples were first returned by Apollo missions. Its control of and accountability for these rare and valuable materials must be reliable. This audit report concludes that NASA lacks sufficient controls over its loans of moon rocks and astromaterials, which increases the risk that these unique resources may be lost. The report identifies opportunities for NASA to strengthen its practices and update its policies for loans of astromaterials. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
