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

Video idea: could you do a video explaining the following behaviour: When i open a fresh can of coke zero and put in a metal straw, coke comes spilling from on top of the straw. It stops after a moment. THen when you take a sip from the straw, it happens again. Why does it happen with coke zero and not say with soda water?

@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.

Attended a local summer educational camp (nerd alert, proud of it) when I was in grade school, and one of the lingering memories from that was getting to see some small moon rock samples brought back from the Apollo program. I don't recall which mission they were from, and they were very tiny fragments, but it was so amazing to get to handle that as a young kid. This video brings back some good memories.

All of the clean room precautions, then then at 16:27 some bearded dude is running around without a beard net!

If you don't get the point, it's because you're intentionally trying to not get the point.
seigeengine - 19 hours ago
Yes, and your point is? I've been in fast food joints where everyone was required to wear hair nets and beard nets. I'm not sure what your point is.
sam1174 - 19 hours ago
...and I've been in clean rooms where I have to wear a full face mask with a hose to bring in fresh air. I guess I don't understand why everyone is wearing hair nets if the guy with the beard doesn't have to wear a beard net. Heck... I've done work in cosmetic factories where everyone is required to wear hair nets and beard nets.

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?
bigghoss762 - Day ago
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.

lowlifes still pushing we went to the moon. how good is film at 250 degrees? no blast crater under the lander? such liars.
seigeengine - 20 hours ago
The film was never at 250 degrees, because contrary to morons who have never so much as thought about heat in their life, physics exist.

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.

seigeengine - 20 hours ago
That never happened. I know what you're referring to, but you're so stupid you couldn't even get the country right, nor who found out it wasn't a moon rock, nor dug deep enough to realize it wasn't one of the actual moon rocks given out in the first place.

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.
