Herbie, Monk and Mars

Oct 11, 2012

Last year Herbie Hancock had a piece of the planet Mars in his jacket pocket during the 25th Anniversary Kennedy Center Gala of the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz.  As you might imagine, this piece of Mars had the best night out that Mars ever had—and it can now be yours!  It will go to the highest bidder at the largest ever auction of meteorites this Sunday, October 14th in New York.
Accompanied by a scientific abstract as well as a note from Herbie, there are only 300 pounds of Mars on Earth, which makes Mars among the rarest naturally occurring substances on Earth---and given its earthly provenance, this bit of Mars is far more rare still!
100% of all proceeds going to the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz. Click here for information.
