Moon Rock.

John Glenn Mini-Museum

On Ohio State University's campus is the John Glenn College of Public Affairs, named after the aviator, astronaut, and senator. In the lobby is a small collection of Glenn memorabilia including knick knacks, awards, and even Glenn's training manual for the Mercury 7 rocket. One award includes a small piece of moon rock!

You know an astronaut is well-favored when he never left orbit but still merits a moon rock in his museum.
