    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.

    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.

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

                  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?

                                It's been over 50 years... what about the rocks that we havent learned that requires all those procedures? I'm not a braindead sheeple conspiracy theorist I'm asking for the official credited position as to why

                                        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.

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