    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

      _"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.

      @Bill Martin where is biometrical data?
      NASA should released biometrical data so some researchers can do study on them, but guess what they lost biometrical data.

      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.

                  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.

                                    This shows how people respect things outside than inside us.
                                    Earth rocks are more magical than moon rock.
                                    Whats inside us more important than outside

                                          @seigeengine thats not what all the news reports say but since you may be right explain to me how the shuttle that supposedly killed 6 or 7 people yet you have 5 of them working in government jobs you can look them up on google or you tube and you can deny all you want it is them

                                          The petrified wood was a personal gift from an American ambassador to an ex-PM, not the government. The real moon rock samples were given to the queen.

                                          Also it was the Netherlands, not Switzerland.

                                                Can you show that bodies always want to rotate around their own center of mass - even if you start to turn it around another axis. Might look great in slow mo.

                                                  Question: how do they change the gloves when they become worn? Do they use the usual procedure of airlocking everything into a second box?

I pray that that this is the first time this mistake has ever been made. As a science major, I have complete faith that all the observations are at least triple checked.
