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. But there is one, Buzz Aldrin's first selfie in space, that's expected to go for more than 60,000 bucks. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
