Thad Roberts, a fellow in a prestigious NASA program had an idea-a romantic, albeit crazy, idea. He wanted to give his girlfriend the moon. Literally.<br /> <br /> Thad convinced his girlfriend and another female accomplice, both NASA interns, to break into an impregnable laboratory at NASA-past security checkpoints, an electronically locked door with cipher security codes, and camera-lined hallways-and help him steal the most precious objects in the world: the moon rocks.<br /> <br /> But what does one do with an item so valuable that it’s illegal even to own? And was Thad Roberts-undeniably gifted, picked for one of the most competitive scientific posts imaginable, a possible astronaut-really what he seemed?<br /> <br /> Mezrich has pored over thousands of pages of court records, FBI transcripts, and NASA documents and has interviewed most of the participants in the crime to reconstruct this<i>Ocean’s Eleven</i>–style heist, a madcap story of genius, love, and duplicity that reads like a Hollywood thrill ride.<br /> <br /> <br /> <i>From the Hardcover edition.</i
