    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.

      @Jack Snow how do you know this defintively? Just some shady people in the Internet tell you that nonsense.

                    Not in a million years would I have thought about the level of detail and control involved in the processing of these samples. Very cool.

                          Yeah, keep bitching about the pittance that gets devoted to productive science, and ignore the trillion a year that gets thrown into the military with no real oversight.

                                This is an amazing scientific process to preserve these moon rocks. By the way, I don’t think NASA is the only agency to bring moon rocks back. Soviets did bring some grams too with Luna series.

                                  Yes. The soviets also brought back some moon rock samples.

                                                        So, Judie talked about how the samples were placed in rock boxes that were triple sealed and closed while still in the vacuum of the moon and brought back to earth that way.

                                                        I heard from somewhere (I don't remember where anymore) that the lunar dust was so rough and coarse that the seals had actually been damaged and air from the lunar lander and command module had actually touched the samples.

                                                        Could anyone comment as to whether or not that actually happened? Maybe to only some samples? And if so, what was done to compensate for this atmospheric contamination when the samples are being studied?

                                                                                Take some real photos so we can really check them out.. YouTube promotes every video. Yet censors mine. Using search words.. I don't even get two words in and this video search pops up. I did a search on my videos I have to put all 6 words in and still it's at the bottom.. YouTube is rigged and this guy is an agent.. these old ladies are so clueless this is bull. They just get a paycheck for dressing up in white to play with old volcanic earth rocks
