    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.

There were also fears of the lunar dust bringing some kind of diseases with them. The astronauts were prepared and willing to be held captive and die in such a case. So as to not spread it. They were really prepared for many many things. (Including being stranded on the moon and such) As you should when venturing to the unknown. What amazes me about this is how the astronauts were basically giving up on their life before going. Yet returned safely and none of those worst case scenarios happened despite their preparations.

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.

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.
