Sex on the Moon




Ocean's Eleven meets A Beautiful Mind...Sex on The Moon is the amazing true story of the 25-year-old genius who pulled off one of the most unique and significant heists in US history

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.

Thad convinced his girlfriend and another female accomplice, both NASA interns, to break into an impregnable laboratory at NASA's headquarters-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.

But what does one do with an item so valuable that it's illegaleven 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?

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 the madcap story of genius, love, and duplicity all centered around an Ocean's Eleven style heist that reads like a Hollywood thrill-ride.
