    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

      @m 77 It's readily available to qualified researchers. Some of it was even seen on live TV at the time.

      @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.

      _"Your claim is that the Apollo mission was faked"_
      Strawman Argument.
      Where have I written that the apollo mission was faked?

      _"Therefore, you bear the burden of proof"_

      I have already covered this once in this thread.

      Burden of proof
      The burden of proof (Latin: onus probandi, shortened from Onus probandi incumbit ei qui dicit, non ei qui negat) is the obligation on a party in a dispute to provide sufficient warrant for their position.

      Holder of the burden
      When two parties are in a discussion and one makes a claim that the other disputes, *the one who makes the claim typically has a burden of proof to justify or substantiate that claim* especially when it challenges a perceived status quo

      Shifting the burden of proof
      One way in which one would attempt to shift the burden of proof is by committing a logical fallacy known as the argument from ignorance. It occurs when either a proposition *is assumed to be true because it has not yet been proved false* or a proposition is assumed to be false because it has not yet been proved true


      You have avoided my original question, and I just have to assume that you can not answer it.

      Support your claims.

      Provide your Evidence.

      _"have you seen the list of synonyms for credulity"_
      Credulity (synonyms)
      gullibility, gullibleness, credulousness, *naivety* , naiveness, *blind faith* , trustfulness, over-trustfulness, lack of suspicion, innocence, ingenuousness, unworldliness, lack of experience, lack of sophistication, guilelessness, greenness, callowness, childlikeness, simpleness, simplicity, *ignorance*

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

            @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

            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.

                                      Were women intentionally chosen for the video, or was this a representative sample of the people working there?

                                      I thought it was pretty cool that there were so many expert women in the field!

                                      Ok, I know that she is smarter than me and forgot more about the moon than I will ever possibly know, however; she called moon rock #259, number #254. I pray that that this is the first time this mistake has ever been made. As a science major, I have complete faith that all the observations are at least triple checked.

                                        To be fair, she's just making a point, not actually doing the work. Level of care is very different between the two situations.

                                              It's amazing how we take so much care of something that eventually will be very common. Nothing else like that comes to mind.

I don't know if laminar flow is involved, but I noticed it doesn't work if the airflow is interrupted in my mouth in any way. Seems like it might be right up your alley.

The most scientific people in the world cared about number 13! OMG, it's definitely way too early for a human to study space...

The reason they didn’t bring any moon rocks back is because it suffered a catastrophic explosion and had to return to Earth without landing on the moon. It’s not any sort of superstitious nonsense like that.
