    Andrea (the lab manager) is awesome.

    I must confess. Any "wingeing" you hear from Brady Haran about how long this collab took is 100% true. We filmed this 4 years ago (!). He's bugged me to publish it every two months or so, so as a way to express my sincere apology I'd like to humbly request that you go watch his video and consider subscribing on Objectivity. Also, if you do so, please leave a comment about how it was worth the wait and he should quit his wingeing. Here's his video. (I didn't know about the Genesis Rock!) thexvid.com/video/yvhLBzsDwSQ/video.html

    • seigeengine
      seigeengine 22 hours ago

      It still amuses me that people think it was outside our capabilities to put people on the Moon.
      It was dangerous. People died. But $150B is a lot of money, and cold war era US government did a lot worse things than risk people's lives hurling them into space... like drugging it's citizens, or injecting them with plutonium.

    It might be a stupid question but, don't the moon get a lot of asteroids crash into it?
    How can they know if it's a natural piece of the moon, or an asteroid piece?

    • seigeengine
      seigeengine 7 days ago

      Yes. Composition, basically.
      We know what asteroids are made of. We have plenty of examples of them from Earth from various sources.

      We know what the Moon is made of. We don't just have this one rock. We have 840 lb of rocks collected not just around one landing site, but around many landing sites in totally different places on the Moon.

    When the first Mission returned, the president of the USA gave to Brazil one of this rocks. Brazilian president at that time was Emílio Médici and this same president was Bageense, that is how we call someone who has been born in Bagé, in the south of Brazil. The president gave the rock to the small city of Bagé, in Rio Grande Do Sul (Brazil) and it can be found here today.

    So how do you keep spending the tax payer money even without leaving the earth for 50 years after the last Apolo? Give first class hospital treatment to a bunch of rocks. And if you need a fcking Band Aid in an american hospital, its better to bring your coins. But that's ok... cause "science" right?. Who needs universal heathcare? thats for commies... Murica.

    We will know if those rocks are fake when another country land on the moon.

    • Jonny Sevent
      Jonny Sevent Day ago

      @kui Q - Well you make a pretty obvious strawman argument there. This is NOT just "google stuff".
      All the experts in the world who know most about this subject disagree with you, and have debunked all your objections many times over. So your argument is with THEM, not me or google. Good luck.

    • kui Q
      kui Q Day ago

      @Jonny Sevent what you pointed out and what I about to say is all google stuff. we shall see if the rocks are real when Other country landed on the moon. Those rocks are identical to the rock found on earth. Since USA is the only country who claimed they landed there before. No one can proof anything , and yeah faking things is what we do best. Your tons of google evidence had 0 credibility as well. You don't think I google what you did and see the article as well ? I don't need to give evidence, you are on youtube. why don't you just type in some key words and find out. Even my professor from JPL had hard time believe in it. I serious don't know where your confidence coming from. I know , from google.

    • Jonny Sevent
      Jonny Sevent Day ago

      @kui Q - Huh? Poor quality cameras at the time? Have you ever seen a good science fiction movie? Well that looks pretty real, so why would better quality pictures change your mind?
      To be taken seriously you need to give evidence for your argument that survives scrutiny. And so far you have not. So until then we will stick with what we have TONS of evidence for.
      By the way, did you know the Soviets tracked the whole mission and even sent congratulations when the astronauts returned home? Google it.

    • kui Q
      kui Q Day ago

      @Jonny Sevent You cry like a baby trying to be professional. Why do people google something they already knew ? how do you know all this at the first place. by standing in front of the TV when they landed on the moon ? and watch youtube videos proofing why it's fake and why it is not ? This mission had one and only one purpose. compete with Russia in the cold war about rocky tech. The waving America flag on the moon, the bubbles in the video. You are not just stupid and not smart, You are just way too Old and unable to accept new stuff and new evidence. ISS is real, moon mission ? huh . maybe but I rather not believe it until China or space X actually landed there.
      With the poor quality of photos and cameras at that time, what is so confidential that America has to keep away from the public. use your little mind if you ever had one.

    • Jonny Sevent
      Jonny Sevent Day ago

      @kui Q - Why would anyone start googling for stuff that they already know. What "mistakes"?Every single objection from you conspiracy theorists has been well and truly debunked a million times and more. So the fact remains, as I stated, that you have ZERO credible evidence to back up your objections.
      You are terrible at assessing evidence and your critical thinking skills are even worse. That's why the truly smart people consider you as a joke.
      It's YOU who is making the extraordinary claim and so the burden of proof is upon YOU, not me. And so far you are failing horribly.

    So I'm really not sure just how many people have noticed, but I fear the documentation aspects of this system.

    Just as a glance, Andrea (who seems amazing and would be really awesome to meet) just so happened to state "254" at 14:55 which 254 is noticeable at the left of the page.

    Could we start a discussion on how something like this could be resolved? Maybe label maker type system?
    Just wanna hear some thoughts.

      False! The only "moon rock" that turned out to be petrified wood was never claimed to be a moon rock by any actual authority, and was not one of the moon rock samples given out. It was an unrelated gift that was donated to an art museum, and never verified.
