Scientific Memorabilia Up For Auction Later This Month
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Years ago in New York, somebody burglarized my apartment, and that is why I no longer own an Atari computer with a TV screen as a monitor. Apparently if I still had it, it could have been valuable. An auction is selling scientific memorabilia, including an old Apple 1 computer. It's expected to go for more than $300,000. That same auction features other scientific treasures, such as a letter by Charles Darwin on the sex life of barnacles. It's MORNING EDITION.
