'Moon rock' given to Holland by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin is fake

An undated handout photo of an alleged piece of moon rock acquired during the first manned mission to the moon which was bequeathed to the Rijksmuseum on the death of former Dutch Prime Minister Willem Drees. The piece of moon rock was given to Drees during a goodwill tour by the three apollo 11 astronauts. According to media reports on August 27, 2009, curators at the Dutch national museum have found the rock to be a fake and nothing more than a piece of petrified wood.AFP PHOTO/HO/RIJKSMUSEUM (Photo credit should read HO/AFP/Getty Images)
