Summary
Thad Roberts, a fellow in a prestigious NASA programme had an idea , a romantic, albeit crazy, idea. He wanted to give his girlfriend the moon. Literally. Thad convinced his girlfriend and another female accomplice, both NASA interns, to break into an impenetrable laboratory at NASA's headquarters, past security checkpoints, and electronically locked door with cipher security codes and camera-lined hallways, and help him steal the most precious objects in the world: Apollo moon rocks from every moon landing in history. Was Thad Roberts, undeniably gifted, picked for one of the most competitive scientific posts imaginable, really what he seemed? And what does one do with an item so valuable that it's illegal even to own? Based on meticulous research into thousands of pages of court records, FBI transcripts and documents, and scores of interviews with the people involved, Mezrich, with his signature high-velocity swagger , has reconstructed the madcap story of genius, love, and duplicity all centred on a heist that reads like a Hollywood thrill ride
