    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

      Bill Martin + Jared = WORTHLESS

      You believe that billions of years ago there was a Big Bang, in which nothing exploded and created everything. The earth supposedly was formed 4.6 billion years ago as a hot ball of ROCK. So there we have your ROCK. Then it rained on this ROCK for millions of years creating a primordial soup. Then the soup MAGICALLY came alive about 3 billion years ago and man ultimately came into existence 3 million years ago. All thanks to a ROCK and some rain.

      It's sad and hard to believe that you call this science. None of this has ever been OBSERVED, TESTED, or DEMONSTRATED.

      Evolutionists hate to hear this but it is true: evolution is a religion. It calls for FAITH in many different areas and it does NOT belong in the science textbooks.

      BAHAHAHA BAHAHAHA BAHAHAHA BAHAHAHA BAHAHAHA BAHAHAHA BAHAHAHA please keep responding your stupidity is hilarious!!!

      Jarod Strain=delusional+desperate

      You're just another dumb dumb that believes he evolved from a rock!!! Ahahahaha To have such a STUPID BELIEF is this day and age is just stubborn and willfully ignorant. It's time to grow up, you're too old to believe your ancestors were rocks!! Let go of your childish ways.

      Trolling Moon Rock YouTube video comment threads just to try and convince people they evolved from a rock is idiotic and pathetic. Why would I listen to someone like yourself, especially someone that has faith they came from a rock?? Ahahahaha

      You have to make a choice. Either you're willfully ignorant or just plain dumb as rocks!! I like to believe there's hope for humanity and believe you're just willfully ignorant.

      Please give me hope and tell me you trust your five senses. Trusting your five senses is the gift of will that will set you free!!

      Please stop memorizing and regurgitating someone else's belief system. Especially if those beliefs came from dirty old pedophiles. Theres no need to memorize books. Your five senses are what make you human and intelligent. Don't go against them!!

      Bill Martin has no MATH SKILLS.

      I'm trying to help you not make a fool of yourself again.

      Here I'll make it real easy for you since simple high school geometry is OBVIOUSLY not your strong point.

      1. Go to your refraction calculator copy and paste the calculations to this comment thread.

      2. I will then HIGHLIGHT where your YOUR DELUSIONAL CALCULATOR increases THE SIZE OF EARTH BY 4,618.83 MILES by adding a multiplier to the radius of EARTH.

      Please do this for me. I really love ending my night with a laugh.

      Remember kiddo ...

      BAHAHA of course refraction calculators will CALCULATE ANY DISTANCE you ask it, you dumb dumb.

      ... and that's where ball gobblers don't use common sense.

      ... and that's where a prediction calculator DOES NOT = REALITY.

      Here's why ... if an object is ALREADY COMPLETELY HIDDEN and BELOW THE HORIZON than it would be impossible for refraction to even refract.


      First you must calculate 2 equations COMPLETELY ...




      from there if the object is STILL IN VIEW than you can attempt to play with your silly refraction numbers.

      Bill Martin is delusional.

      bahaha of course REFRACTION exists silly girl but it sure can't magically levitate COMPLETELY HIDDEN OBJECTS 4 miles into the air and AROUND A BALL, you SILLY girl!

      Keywords for you = 'COMPLETELY HIDDEN' and 'AROUND a BALL.'


      Like I said you can't apply a refraction coefficient to an object that is already COMPLETELY HIDDEN and BELOW THE HORIZON.

                  This is ridiculous! 50 years later we should have monthly trips to the moon and taking passengers to pay for those trips and rocks available as souvenirs!!! HOW did those men and women do it 50 years ago and we can't figure it out today?

                                For most of us, it is almost impossible to imagine how obsessively detailed and technically exact every process of scientific investigation must be. That is why we totally underestimate and misconceive how great feats of scientific and engineering such as the moon landing are achieved.

                                      Incorrect. A lump of petrified wood gifted to a foreign politician got misconstrued as a moon rock and was donated and displayed in an art museum with no verification. Eventually someone with a brain managed to convince the museum to test it.

                                        All those decontamination procedures and they let some scruffy bearded dude taint the whole place. Speaking of, what about all the makeup those women are wearing?

                                          Strictly speaking, they shouldn't even need to decontaminate anything, since there's additional containment within.

                                        So I have a question for destin. Iv racked my brain trying to figure this out. I live in athens ohio and in july it get dark around 9 30ish. When in florida at satelite beach it gets dark around 8 30ish. On map satelite beach does sit east little bit more than athens . But not much more. Why do u think that there an hr difference of when it gets dark. Thanks.

                                          Fascinating to see so much care when Apollo has thrown away all the launch videos, the telemetry data and most of the data on Apollo is found scattered around the web submitted by Random people.
                                          It's almost as if NASA was making the entire story up and no one has been able to go above 250 miles even 50 years later.

The whole 'the moon used to be lava' theory, i bet that's the cover story. Also, if these rocks are really so special and so rare they wouldn't be breaking them into pieces. It makes no logical sense that a rock can't be studied without being broken. In my opinion these women don't seem like super smart scientists working in a special laboratory, they seem no better than librarians who are given the busy work of counting rock particles. A task that i'm certain must have no real value. Also, what happens if a rock gets contaminated? My impression is that Nasa don't really understand these rocks. And the big question for me is, how do you prove that these rocks can't be created on earth? There was an astronaut, i think it was Gordon Cooper, said there were spaceships watching astronauts on the moon. I feel like there's more to these rocks than just mindlessly breaking them apart. If they are from the moon it could be that we don't have the technology to properly study them and so resort to caveman tactics of breaking them into pieces.
