Scott Parazynski, the first astronaut ever to scale the world's highest mountain presented the rock samples that he collected himself during his expedition in 2009 along with some moon rock samples collected by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to George Zamka the commander of NASA's next space shuttle mission.
