    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

          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?

                                        bhsbass - they haven’t been to the bottom of the ocean in decades either. Does that mean you question that as well?

                                      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.

                                        What if the conspiracy theorist Is fake and laughing because of all the money they made off of books/ articles/ youtube you watched and read 🤔🤔 what if the conspiracy is to invent a conspiracy so the conspiracy theorists will buy it and give them money?🤔🤔 when was the last time you had an article or book published by conspiracy theorists that did not contain adds and was fully free to the public unlike the mountains of documents of scientific research you can find online with no revenue going to the credited publishers?

                                                                            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.
