    Apollo astronauts trained in nuclear bomb craters at the Nevada National Security Site. But why?Thanks Audible! Start listening with a 30-day trial and your first audiobook plus two Audible Originals free when you go to audible.com/veritasium or text veritasium to 500500
    I found this story fascinating because in a way a nuclear bomb crater is more like a meteorite impact site than an impact site itself. Consider: Barringer Crater was claimed to be a meteorite impact site but geologists dismissed it as a volcanic formation. It was only after studying nuclear bomb craters and the minerals found there that geologists concluded the energy and pressures that created Barringer Crater were too high to be from volcanic activity and therefore must have formed from a meteorite impact.

Very interesting stuff here although also there are some holes in the story. The light coloured deposits shown are expalined as being ejecta from volcanoes outside the mares but that surely makes them very rare finds. Also we have moon rocks landing on earth each year so why did we send fighter pilots to get more samples from the moon? You state that the missions were scientific in nature, but what discovery did science make definitively from them? You repeat the claim that the missions were supposed to make discoveries about the early solar system as well as the formation of the moon. Can you honestly hold that such information was really gathered from Apollo? What was discovered outside of what we already knew? Do you believe all the claims made by Apollo? Do you still believe the moon is as dry as was claimed? Do you believe it is hollow and rung like a bell with seismic resonance when a rocket crashed on its surface? If Apollo was a hoax we are sure to find out soon. It would explain why Van Allen's report stated that radioactive was extremely energetic around earth and that no moon excursions could be undertaken. It would explain how the terrible solar onslaught outside the atmosphere posed no problem for the crew. So many reason to believe apollo was a hoax. Ive made some little vids of my own on that subject. You can view them here, https://youtu.be/Zztbw7MLlkI

This tells me 2 things: that this is where the filmed the real "moon landing", and that nuclear radiation must not be as bad as they tell us if 900 bombs were detonated there and 40 years later you're walking around without radiation suit. Wonder how much NASA and the DOD paid for him to make this propaganda film.

Projectiles maybe, but if they EXPLODE when impact the ground, that is a very different scenario. Don't think you can recreate it at home with a piece of chalk and some talcum powder on a plate. Perhaps if you try with some fireworks...

And then we're only talking about space and its origins we are researching! what about Evolution and biology? its amazing how such complex procceses can make such a dreamy almost sureal space that we creatures call home. like, no one can come up with that stuff!

Thats wrong. The samples from the moon still to this day never touch oxygen. The astronauts sealed them before bringing on the spacecraft. Also, they did report the smell of gunpowder when the dust on their suits oxidized.

because it is a closed classified zone. It was there that Stanley Kubrick filmed the landing on the moon without fear that someone would see him. And there is no danger to take photos and compare them with photographs from the moon. After all, the zone is closed

It really is sad how little of its promise nuclear technology actually was able to fullfill. You can't deny nuclear ships and subs are amazing uses of it, but the potential to have small nuclear power stations in every community (like they did at the base in Greenland or Project Iceworm) just couldn't happen. They really must have thought they were going to cheaply power the entire world. Maybe some day LFTR or something similar makes this possible.

Not ''d explode because before comeback in module, they get a sort of vacuum boxcase who was seal when was outside, after they bag suitcase in double bag (end was fiber psecific) and placed on storage in lem.(more info and add appolo 's videos irt for explanantion process).
