    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.

So the Earth is ~4.5B years old since the astronomical event that cause the moon to form. The universe is ~14B years old. Life evolved to the state that is in roughly 1/3 of the life of the universe. Who is to say that we are the first intelligent life forms on Earth? How do we know that there wasn't another that was obliterated by the event that cause the moon to form?

Not true, when they “put the rocks in the module” they never let the rocks come in contact with oxygen cause they had a certain material bag that was then sealed tight, but all that is fake seeing that we didn’t go to the moon 😂

If the Apollo Astronauts got stuck on the moon, my biggest worry would have been lack of oxygen. Because they would have had enough cheese to last a lifetime.

They practiced and recorded in the same spot. If you think they actually went to the moon and then “lost” the technology to get there, then I see why you push the Climate change billion year propaganda.
