Washington -- The following is a statement from NASA Administrator Charles Bolden regarding the ownership of early space exploration mementos and artifacts: "Earlier today, I had a good meeting with former Apollo astronauts Jim Lovell, Gene Cernan, Charlie Duke, Rusty Schweickart and other representatives of former astronauts and agency personnel, where we discussed how to resolve the misunderstandings and ownership questions regarding flight mementos and other artifacts.
Today, it's being reported that NASA has saved another, slightly bigger Apollo artifact from being auctioned off: one of the cameras from the 1971 Apollo 14 mission. But how did such a bulky piece of hardware go missing in the first place? Well, it seems ex-astronaut Edgar Mitchell had something to do with that.
ensure that appropriate artifacts are preserved and available for display to the American people
