    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.

A much more simple explanation would be that the "moon rocks" are just unusual earth rocks collected, you know, on Earth. Instead, you've gone off down some tangent and created this entire elaborate story of how the moon was formed from a collision with the earth. No. Moon rocks are similar to earth rocks, because they are earth rocks.

So he's implying the moon landing was not staged and that those dust samples are as real as the moon rock donated to Holland which happened to be petrified wood?

Could it be the 900 plus nuclear test detonations in the southwest of the USA ,or the radioactive particles created from said tests , that caused the high cancer rates of Americans who live during that era?

Hey Mr. Veritsium, one time you say meteorite impact, other time you say meteor impact. If you do a serious video about serious stuff, it would be nice of you to get the terminology right. Otherwise, there is no point in educating people with incorrect stuff, right? The correct words are meteorite impact, as a meteor is just an atmospheric phenomenon, right? No meteor impact, meteorite impact! And then later, NO!!!! "Meteors are typically going incredibly fast,..." - METEOROIDS. There are 3 words: meteoroid, meteor, meteorite. Please, do me a favor and correct it in the video. Thank you!

I noticed in the nuke test footage, there was a black smoke coming off of the buildings before the actual shockwave hit them. Was that paint burning off from the flash? I'm just so intrigued about how hot that flash is.

the fun thing about far away science, like moon and sun, is you cannot say no about it.. they tell you "these", and you must believe in "these" or else you look stupid.. not like learning another science that can be experimented on earth.. these stellar science took a leap of faith and only faith is all you need... hehe..
