    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.

    There is a high probability of these samples to be fake. Original rocks are most likely in area 51.

    Hey I’m being 100% straight up on this because I don’t know so I’m hoping someone who does cares enough to answer this for me & I’m sure I’m not alone. So the only thing I’ve ever heard about moon rocks was the report about a head of some country receiving one as a gift or what & it turned out to be petrified wood. Now I’m sure there is an “official story about that. Anyone care to enlighten me on that please?

    22 ore fa
  • seigeengine
    seigeengine

    The petrified wood was never claimed to be a moon rock by anyone who would actually know. Sorry for some of the rough answers around names and the like, I'm going off memory here. What happened was around the moon mission tour (the USA paraded moon landing astronauts around the world), an American ambassador (his name was something like Widdendorf) gave the (at the time) ex-Prime Minister of the Netherlands (William Drees I think) a gift of some petrified wood, likely from his home state (Arizona, known for petrified wood). This is definitely not the moon rock samples NASA gave out (at the order of the President, not because they wanted to) to the Netherlands (as well as a ton of other countries, and the US states/territories). We can tell that because the official moon rock samples were absolutely tiny, in the area of a gram of material, and it was encased in resin/epoxy/I don't remember the exact material, and mounted on a wooden placque, whereas in contrast the petrified wood is on the order of 100 grams, and was just a rock. We also know this because the official moon rock samples were given to the Queen of the Netherlands, not to a former Prime-Minister. We also know this because they still know where those moon rock samples are (I believe they're on display in a museum). After the former-PMs death, his family found the rock with a card given out during the Apollo tours, assumed they were related, and donated them to a museum. Not a science museum... an art museum. The museum put them on display without really ever verifying they were real. Eventually somebody with a brain both realized something was up and managed to convince the museum to test the rocks, and they finally realized it was just petrified wood.... queue news articles and moon landing denialists rejoicing because they never learned how to reason correctly.

    @Gourd EarthVines No, that's not what that means. Contaminated just means "stuff from Earth got on it." We don't want that, because then when we study the rocks, we might struggle to tell what's Earth stuff and what's Moon stuff.

    7 giorni fa
  • seigeengine

    No, for two reasons: 1. The footage was not taken on film. The lost footage was taken from the signal sent back to Earth wirelessly. 2. The footage isn't really lost. It's just the original recordings that were. The signal was split and half was broadcast around the world... which we still have.

    @seigeenginethx, of course, good point. But I'd like to use one rock only and study what it does in a controlled area mixing with earth rocks. I find it hard to imagine no scientist has claimed to have done that. We use titanium in our bodies commonly in medicine and I've heard the moon is alot of that element.....Well, I better just go get a Degree and join the privately funded groups that don't have to tell all.🙂 There was a statement made that NASA " lost" original film footage and such. Do you believe that?

    7 giorni fa
  • seigeengine
    seigeengine

    Nothing. The reason isn't because they're dangerous, but because the more contaminated they are with Earth-stuff, the less useful they are as research material. For a very simple example, imagine a researcher wanted to see if there was evidence of life on the Moon in those rocks.... you'd want to make sure life hadn't gotten onto them here on Earth, or that ruins the study.

    @seigeengine Dude don't correct someone's grammar on the internet. There are far too many factors such as bad chinese technology that fail to offer proper grammar options.

Its been over forty years and the only nations advancing space exploration are Russia, China and the states has fallen third. If Russia or China starts mining meteors then the world mining industry will fall to them.

    were* And basically it was a matter of investment. It's not that Russia was particularly good. They just invested in it at a time the USA wasn't. The USA had far more resources than Russia, so when it started putting some of that into space, the USA managed a project too big for Russia to manage (Russia never got their moon-landing-intended rocket to work)

    You have to restrict the material handling in contact with space material, those materials themselves will react to the space materials.. The vacuum seal containment environment is also required to prevent material break down. This is important. They cannot just make or obtain more samples. Each piece contains different information. How awesome is that! Periodically I like to speak on such exciting brain nibblets. But enough of my table talk.
