Scientists Establish Falsity of Moon Rocks Provided by NASA for Research

NEW YORK – March 25, 2019

Unexpectedly for all, the scientific journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters has officially published information about the analysis of the samples collected during the Apollo 14 lunar mission in 1971. It turns out that it contains traces of minerals with a chemical composition quite common on Earth, though not characteristic of the moon.

The NASA sample was officially leased to Curtin University, where it was examined in collaboration with researchers from the Swedish Museum of Natural History, the Australian National University, and the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston.

The author of the study, Professor Alexander Nemchin from the School of Earth Sciences at Curtin, officially declared that a sample weighing 1.8 grams showed an atypical composition of minerals for the moon, but very common for the Earth's surface.

“The sample contains quartz, which is an absolutely unusual find on the Moon,” said Professor Nemchin. “Having determined the age of the zircon found in the sample, we were able to determine the age of the inner rock - about four billion years, which makes it look like just the ancient stones of the Earth. In addition, the chemical composition of zircon in this sample is very different from the chemical composition of any other particles of zircon ever analyzed in lunar samples, but surprisingly similar to the chemical composition of zircons found on Earth."

Professor Nemchin also noted that the chemical composition of the sample of lunar zircon showed that it was formed at a low temperature and, probably, in the presence of water, under oxidation conditions, which is also more characteristic for the Earth and not at all typical for the Moon.

“We can only assume that perhaps some of these unusual conditions could have arisen on the Moon in some rare short-term period and the sample is the result of a deviation from the norm,” said Professor Nemchin. “However, there is a simpler explanation, which assumes that this stone is part of the Earth and hit the Moon as a meteorite formed by an asteroid that hit the Earth about four billion years ago and threw material into space and the Moon.”

However, truth seekers have their own opinion on this. In social networks, the theme is actively developing that this sample was not even delivered from the Moon, but is an example of NASA’s falsification - that is, the stone was simply picked up on the Earth's surface and was presented to the public as a model of lunar soil for many years.
