Private Collector To Sell Thousands Of Photos Taken By Astronauts

NOEL KING, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Noel King. You and I will probably never go to the moon, but now we can get a whole lot closer. A private collector is selling more than 2,000 vintage pictures taken by NASA astronauts. Christie's is auctioning them online, and bidding for most will start at about $130.
