Mr. Duke was the Lunar Module Pilot of the Apollo 16 Mission, in 1972. He is the 10th person to walk on the moon. He also left a family photograph of himself, his wife, and his two sons on the lunar surface (Picture 5).

NWA 11182 is an example where additional stones were found after the classification was published but the weight of those stones were not added to the writeup. See the picture attached of a 37g slice on Kortev's lunar page.

May I forward this email to my son. He doesn*t collect meteorites and knows little about them, but I think he would love to see these photos and the information that you provided about them.
