Become a History Detective, help PBS solve the mystery of John F. Did this elusive NASA engineer help put Andy Warhol art on the moon? In 1969, six major artists, including Andy Warhol, conspired to put their artwork on the moon. They shrank their artwork to fit on a tiny ceramic wafer, with a plan to smuggle the chip on board Apollo 12. A Florida art curator has a clone of the chip. He wants to know if the original made it to the moon.

HISTORY DETECTIVES Gwen Wright takes the case from there. She narrows the investigation to a man who calls himself John F. He sent a telegram to the artists confirming that he attached the chip to the leg of the lunar landing module that NASA left on the surface of the moon. Did he? Only John F. knows for sure.

PBS HISTORY DETECTIVES asks fans across the nation to come forward with any information they know about John F. and whatever else might be on the moon. Join the investigation online NOW at pbs.org
