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!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvhLBzsDwSQ

Also check out Joe Hanson's video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qr28zMXQ3bU

@Bill Martin _"I have made an assumption about you based on my experience with others of your ilk"_ There seems to be a lot of *assumptions* made about a lot of things these days. _"You demand more than evidence, you demand conclusive proof, while recognizing the impossibility of such"_ "Evidence refers to information or facts that help us to establish the truth or existence of something. Proof is the sum of evidence which helps to prove something." - Dictionary fact - a thing that is known or *proved* to be true. proved - *demonstrate* the truth or existence of (something) by evidence demonstrate - to show clearly and deliberately - to present by experiments, examples, or practical application - to give a demonstration Lets see what my original question was; Moon rocks/Earth rocks What Tests have *You* conducted to verify anything about the "lunar" samples? How can you verify anything about them? VERIFY - make sure or *demonstrate* that (something) is true, accurate, or justified. Have you verified - or are you able to verify - or is it possible for you to verify - what you are saying. Or is it just your willingness to want to believe that makes it so? _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ To that class of citizens who are known as " *Honest Skeptics* " and lovers of " *Demonstrated Truth* " We assign no man to oblivion because of a difference of opinion. Let God and His Works be true, though thy prove all men false. Alex Gleason _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _"You use this to justify your argument"_ _"Doubt about one item, in your mind, invalidates all other conclusions"_ *Demonstrated Truth* , I like this phrase.

@Andrew I have made an assumption about you based on my experience with others of your ilk. You are singing in the chorus of space deniers, thus I logically assume you, like the others, sing the same stanza. You are somewhat more thorough in your willingness to do research, but still determined to come to the same conclusion. You demand more than evidence, you demand conclusive _proof,_ while recognizing the impossibility of such. You use this to justify your argument. Doubt about one item, in your mind, invalidates all other conclusions. One cannot carry on an enjoyable discussion in that kind of environment.

@Bill Martin where is biometrical data? NASA should released biometrical data so some researchers can do study on them, but guess what they lost biometrical data.

Honestly? I feel like, if I watch this video, and give in to anything they show, and discuss, then I'm allowing them to insult my intelligence.
No one has ever been to the moon, it is a lesser light source for nighttime, and is disc shaped. It's the same size as the sun, but 7 times less bright. There's only one side of the moon that faces earth, and shines.
If the moon was a sphere, and was a terra (land, rock formation), and was the distance away from earth that we're told by NASA; Do you really think that in 1969, 50 years ago we were capable of having a long distance telephone conversation from 238,900 miles away, and have it audibly broadcasted on live television? Seriously?
Today's news reporters have delayed reactions while talking live to their studio while they're at the scene of an event. Also, has anybody been able to make phone calls from an airplane at 30, 000 feet? We're talking 5 miles high!? 238,900 miles away just chit chatting with Houston. Right.
Sorry, but I'm gonna hafta call this episode, "Getting DUMBER Everyday!"

In the video "Can You Break A Lock With Canned Air" from "The King of Random" they show, what happens to smoke, when it "floats" on the gas. Can you explain, why the smoke forms rings?

That would be pretty funny if NASA had just modified a pickup truck to fly to the moon and they just randomly tossed rocks in the back until it was full.

The "moon rocks" that have been given away to heads of state have been PROVEN to be fake. Why should we believe any of those are real? This is pure theatre.

I absolutely love watching your videos!! And it's even better that the 50th anniversary of the moon landing today!! Thanks for your videos! I'm going to start watching them with my 4 month old grandson, once he has a longer attention span. Being distracted each time he blinks, doesn't really help right now!! Keep up the great work!

Can you do a video on paper towel tearing? Im serious. There must be some science or mathematical formula that explains why a paper towels never tears correctly. It will always start right then end up tearing on the opposite side of the pull you started with and leave a small piece there. So annoying.

Things I want to know... 1. Has she ever had the chance to physically touch a moon rock? 2. Does she or her fellow co-workers own a piece? 3. Not a question but, I would love to see another mission to the moon to gather more rock samples from the exact locations as before to test for changes that have occurred over the last 50 years.

This shows how people respect things outside than inside us.
Earth rocks are more magical than moon rock.

@seigeengine thats not what all the news reports say but since you may be right explain to me how the shuttle that supposedly killed 6 or 7 people yet you have 5 of them working in government jobs you can look them up on google or you tube and you can deny all you want it is them
seigeengine - 22 timmar sedan
The petrified wood was a personal gift from an American ambassador to an ex-PM, not the government. The real moon rock samples were given to the queen. Also it was the Netherlands, not Switzerland.

Can you show that bodies always want to rotate around their own center of mass - even if you start to turn it around another axis. Might look great in slow mo.

I've worked in glove boxes before, but not on moon rocks.

Question: how do they change the gloves when they become worn? Do they use the usual procedure of airlocking everything into a second box?

Dan Mor you should look at the footage of the mission and watch the little buggy go around. The dust that falls down from driving around falls with the same speed as dust would fall here on earth. Clearly something they didn’t think about at nasa back in the days. Never went to the moon confirmed.
