This Genius Punk Stole The Most Valuable Substance on Earth From NASA Then Had Sex On Top Of It

Astronauts have exciting and often intriguing careers; it's no wonder regular folks are so interested in the doings of these space travelers. In that vein, meet Thad Roberts – the once-aspiring astronaut who blew his chance to go to space by stealing some quick-and-dirty moments on the Moon. Well, on moon rocks, anyway. 

In 2002, 25-year-old NASA intern Thad Roberts pulled off a moon rock heist from a NASA safe, took the rocks to bed with him – literally – and was then captured trying to sell some of the precious material to FBI agents in Florida. The best part: he did it all for love. 

Astronauts are like all of us – just with higher IQs. They get into shenanigans and can be full of spunky personality as Pete Conrad, the Bart Simpson of NASA, and Lisa Nowak, the astronaut who drove across the country wearing a diaper, demonstrate. However, the intern who stole the Moon might just take the cake when it comes to astronauts behaving badly.
