A shovel which was used by astronauts on the moon has sold for a staggering £720,000 ($875,000).<br />
<br />
The 'moon rock scoop' collected 211lb of lunar samples during the Apollo 16 mission in 1972.<br />
<br />
This included the 26lb specimen 'Big Muley', which was the largest rock collected during the Apollo missions.
