    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=yvhLBzsDwSQAlso check out Joe Hanson's video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qr28zMXQ3bU

    I thought on every documentary I’ve watched that they said they weren’t Aloud to bring back any moon rocks

    Seeing Neil talking about the boxes and seeing the quality of the video gets me pumped to see the quality of video we're going to get when we go back to the moon.

    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.

    So we are going to act like this is real when all the Rocks we gave away turned out to be petrified wood amongst other things... I heard you're selling the Golden Gate Bridge also, any buyers yet?

    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?

    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.
