    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

      @Jacob Corrao Do you have any Friends in real life? You are such an annoying person that I doubt it seriously.

    Why are they stored in Nitrogen instead of Argon? Was it impossible to separate Argon in the 70s or something?

                  This is maybe my favorite. I m a soapstone carver. Most of my rocks are 5-750 pounds to start. My carvings are 6- .25#. I love how they catalog the slices and pieces. Stellar work

                          So I'm really not sure just how many people have noticed, but I fear the documentation aspects of this system.

                          Just as a glance, Andrea (who seems amazing and would be really awesome to meet) just so happened to state "254" at 14:55 which 254 is noticeable at the left of the page.

                          Could we start a discussion on how something like this could be resolved? Maybe label maker type system?
                          Just wanna hear some thoughts.

                            Did Russia & China get any of these samples?

                              Fact! some of these "moon rocks" turned out to be nothing more than petrified wood from earth.

                                False! The only "moon rock" that turned out to be petrified wood was never claimed to be a moon rock by any actual authority, and was not one of the moon rock samples given out. It was an unrelated gift that was donated to an art museum, and never verified.

                              LOL! man never set foot on earth! it was a big Hollywood hoax to bankrupt Soviets as Soviets kept wasting billions in space while their public nose dived into poverty. why can NASA go today with modern tech?

                                      You do realize that a good chunk of conspiracy theories exist or are popular specifically because they were made up and spread by conmen to make money off of the gullible and mentally infirm?

                                                    Seriously? Why does it or will it ever matter about the exact location where collected, and how the sample was oriented at that location., Or what piece of rock fits another piece of the same rock. Decades of wasted taxpayer dollars, while people are starving to death on our own rock. This is a shameless sin being committed against humanity.

                                                          My teacher had authentic moon rocks. He got them from his friend who is a scientist at NASA and my teacher had to walk around with a suitcase attached to his wrist with handcuffs.
