    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.

      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.

            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?

                                  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.

                                                                      • seigeengine

                                                                        That means we can use them to study the history of the physical materials of the Earth.

This is the reason why I follow the pages of those two "friends" you mentioned of yours at the end of this video but I don't follow you channel.

I think you could show her unlimited amounts of evidence and she still would never believe it. but that goes for about anybody that has been indoctrinated with what they know to be fact their whole life. When beliefs are challenged, it makes the brain glitch.

You can’t refute the video proving Sibrel edited out the part showing the astronauts were halfway to the moon so you posted a stupid racist attack on the guy who made it. You’re even more of an idiot than Dubay.

                                                                        • Grant Farrell

As far as that Neanderthal goes, he embezzled a lot of money from his patrons. He is an ignorant thief. Anyways, watch Eric Dubay 200 proofs Earth is not a spinning ball. Good luck on your journey for truth.

And what I realized was Bart Sibrel used NASA footage, edited parts out of it, then lied about the parts that he edited out. You can go to NASA‘s website and see the uncut version of their official video, and compare it to the one that Sibrel used in his movie, and see exactly where he lied. The only reason he had to lie was because he knew the astronauts went to the moon.

                                                                          If you’re too lazy to go look that up for yourself, go find “a funny thing happened addendum” by YouTuber GreaterSapien. He did the comparison for you.
