NASA Explorers: Moon Detective

Click any button for sharing!

What happened to the lost data from the Apollo era? Get to know the “data detectives” who are tracking it down. The science experiments the Apollo astronauts conducted from the surface of the Moon provide a long-term data record that’s crucial to understanding our Moon as a complete system. Today’s scientists are looking forward to future human exploration of the Moon and the discoveries to follow.
Ketan from Sugarland, Texas, tells us about his childhood in Mumbai, India, and how his father made sure his children got a firsthand look at the Moon landing.

    @NASA I’m willing to work with you for the people’s benefit. However I’ve got a greater knowledge of the universe than you. I can even explain why we do exist. I will succeed with or without you. So?


    They had this data for 50+ years… What have they been doing with it all this time? More and more things point to that maybe we didn’t go.

    If there is a hole drilled from one end of the earth to the other. Going through this hole according to my imagination will be as fast as going through the cosmic worm hole, because if one has created a hole from this beginning to the other end of the earth, all the laws of physics inside that hole will change even meaninglessly, the probability that the hole will make a hole in space space can also happen. The Earth is, after all, only a small spherical object floating, floating inside the space of this endless universe. :-) 🇬🇳 ( G trans fr VN )
