Golden Lunar Module Model Stolen

A proverbial interstellar art heist has befallen a space museum in Ohio  as a solid gold replica of the famed Apollo lunar module was stolen by  some enterprising thieves.

Previously on display at the Armstrong Air and Space Museum, the  remarkable model was pilfered late Friday evening during what appears to  have been a targeted break-in at the building.

Authorities in the city of Wapakoneta, where the museum calls home, say  that they were alerted to suspicious activity when the alarm sounded at  the site.

However, they arrived at the location after the burglars had already  accomplished their nefarious handiwork and escaped with the statue in  tow.

By its very nature, the model is surely quite valuable, but the historic  backstory to the statue likely makes it worth more than its weight in  gold.

Find out why the model would, no doubt, fetch a high price on the black market at the Coast to Coast AM website.
