    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

        They sure go through a lot of trouble for fake moon rocks that we didn't walk out to get off the moon. This should be the end of the we never went to the moon argument.

                              There are no "Moon rocks" and the ones given away to other countries as gifts turned out to be petrified wood. Stop keeping the lie alive.

                                @Thomas Mahoney False on all counts. None have ever been shown to be fake, and it was more like 400~

                                @seigeengine wrong. All of the "moon rocks" have been found to be fake wood. Quick Google search for the terms show without a doubt all 20 or so given away have been proven by labs to be common rocks or petrified wood. You saying words means nothing.

                                False. The only "moon rock" that ever turned out to be petrified wood wasn't one of the rocks given out to other countries, nor does it even resemble them in any fashion, aside from both being rocks.

                                The only one lying here are you lot.

                              Quick question! When they are sent out for scientists or anywhere else to test. How can you assure that they have the same standards put into place to make sure they are no contaminated. I would assume they don't go back with the same rock put back into pieces should it be contaminated right?

                                          @Josh Dibble Petrified wood is rock shaped like wood, so "wood rocks" isn't really wrong.

                                          None of the official moon rock samples have ever been shown to be anything but authentic. You nutjobs keep pretending a lump of petrified wood that got labeled a moon rock in an art museum for a while constitutes evidence the moon landings were fake.

                                          The only thing you're disproving by this argument is your own intelligence.

                                          seigeengine actually petrified wood to be exact. Let me correct myself the wood was not fake it was real and moon rocks don’t exist. Sorry pal. Hate to break it to you but you’ve been lied to. But. Here’s the good news you not alone. I’ve got faith in you. Fire up that brain of yours and really dive in deep. Question everything....? Yes everything...? Daunting I know but for some of us we’ve been doing it for years finding the truth. It’s really in plane view. You will be amazed. So if no one told ya... happy trails.

                                        if the moon landings were fake,why would thay have a facility with fake rocks and it would be a waste of money.this video has changed my mind and i believe america went to the moon

                                          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.

                                                              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.
