What Science Was Actually Done on the Moon? | Apollo

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

Apollo 14 conducted more scientific exploration of the Moon than any mission before it, and discoveries from the trip would eventually shape a new understanding of our celestial neighbor.

Check out the entire Apollo series here!:

Apollo 14 Demonstrated Spaceflight Challenges Are Solvable

“When Apollo 14 touched down on the moon on Feb. 5, 1971, it was more than a 240,000-mile trip – it was a hard-fought return to flight for NASA’s Apollo Program and America’s first person in space.”

Apollo 14: ‘Rookie’ Crew and a Famous Golf Ball

“Today, many people best remember this mission as the one where an astronaut hit golf balls on the moon, but the crew also had several other adventures.”

The 8 weirdest things we’ve left on the moon

“Humans tend to leave junk wherever we go. The moon is no exception. It’s estimated that we’ve left nearly 400,000 pounds of stuff on the moon over the course of dozens of human and uncrewed missions.”


The path to the moon traced a dangerous line of risk and reward. In a race against time, the Apollo Program challenged our scientific capabilities and redefined the boundaries of humanity. To celebrate NASA’s 60 years of exploration, Seeker is going back in time to relive each Apollo mission, taking viewers on a ride to an entirely new world.

Seeker explains every aspect of our world through a lens of science, inspiring a new generation of curious minds who want to know how today’s discoveries in science, math, engineering and technology are impacting our lives and shaping our future. Our stories parse meaning from the noise in a world of rapidly changing information.

They went to the moon to only find out if the earth was really flat, duh!

Rumple Skilltonz December 16, 2018 - 1:38 PM

Bahahahahahahaha 😅😂🤣😂🤣😅😂🤣😅😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 space has been faked. The only space there is, is the space between the heads of naive people who believe Stanley’s faked moon missions

Rumple Skilltonz December 16, 2018 - 1:40 PM

They say they lost the tech. How is that possible. It’s more proof we didn’t go.

James S. December 16, 2018 - 2:01 PM

Yall believe in the moon?!

Franky Nakamoto December 16, 2018 - 2:18 PM

They still talking about all the NASA lies?

Lohith S B December 16, 2018 - 2:20 PM

Are we going to moon next ( we common people )

Pale O'Pterix December 16, 2018 - 3:52 PM

What science? The science of faking moon walks and landings.

James Donaghy December 16, 2018 - 4:57 PM

none. Nobody ever pretended Apollo was for science. That idea died years before Apollo launched.
Originally, astronomy was going to be a big deal, but that all went out the window because it would require a flight into space which Apollo wasn't equipped for. So no pictures of the stars at all. No pictures from the dark side, none from the surface and none taken on the way.
Another aspect of science was to be seismology and probes were to listen to the core of the moon. We are still waiting to look at that data. Some say it is lost.
Moonrocks are not science because they don't provide a source we can all measure. Only a select little club get to see the moonrocks and even they can only do certain things with them. So, not science.
Apollo has stymied exploration and discovery concerning the moon and possibly of manned space missions.
A13 disaster? Really? It's a disaster now? So what are we calling the fire which killed 3 crew members?

I'm not flat Earther nor a conspiracy theorist, what amaze me is how all of you just blindly accepting the moon landing. With all the evidence showing that is not real and the timing of space race with Soviet's and whole lot of other reasons for government to benefit from faking this. I'm not saying that to believe me, just asking you to analyse the circumstances of that time and research why some people say moon landing os fake. That's all.

Title makes no sense fools…

Movie making science

Skids All Day December 16, 2018 - 6:22 PM

If the moon landing was fake. How does that explain the dish they left on the surface.

Azzam Al Hanif December 16, 2018 - 7:20 PM

We never made it to the moon. Change my mind!

FatboySim December 16, 2018 - 7:33 PM

Change title it’s broken

Josuke December 16, 2018 - 7:50 PM

Earth is not flat

Millad Bahrami December 16, 2018 - 10:36 PM

I feel like the title of the video is a little inaccurate

Neil Coss December 17, 2018 - 12:09 AM

WAS? Doesn't any one proofread anything thing anymore. Perfect proof that a second grade education can absolutely attract the rest of the idiots that watch this fucking garbage. SHIP OF FOOLS.

Juan Alejandro Acosta December 17, 2018 - 12:19 AM

So fake

Shubham Jindal December 17, 2018 - 12:58 AM

Weren't Neil Armstrong & Buzz Aldrin the first men to step on moon? Am I missing something here? 🤔

michael mac December 17, 2018 - 4:39 AM

I miss Dnews

shadowlang404 December 17, 2018 - 6:05 AM

Uhhh, you also forgot that they retooled the CO2 scrubbers to match between the command module and LM.

shadowlang404 December 17, 2018 - 6:08 AM

Uhhh, also Apollo 15 didn't have face masks coming out of the helicopter when they landed on the carrier. Only Apollo 11 for concerns of biohazard, which were disregarded for later missions

My head is a football and your grammar sucks ballz

These people are obsessed with the Apollo missions .. Beware this channel is full of disinformation.

TundraTravels December 17, 2018 - 10:12 AM

Steph Curry says the Moon Landings were FAKE!

SpoopySquid December 17, 2018 - 10:54 AM

Sometimes I wonder how people still support Trump. Then I read comments by people who believe the Earth is flat and/or the moon landing never happened and it all makes sense

Mustapha Mus December 17, 2018 - 2:04 PM

QUESTION ONLY: Why is not there one video clip with the camera hanging on the vest of the astronaut? Why there isn't 360 ° view ?
NASA said these videos have been distorted by mistake
Also nasa said : We destroyed that technology that took us to the moon! right !!!!???????

Angry Kittens December 17, 2018 - 4:42 PM

Wonder when we'll go back. We've lost all sense of wonder and adventure these days.

Ales dos Santos December 17, 2018 - 5:39 PM

Heelloo Matt Morales 😏

Nceba Marareni December 18, 2018 - 2:26 PM

Y'all might as well just say space is fake.😑

Ren Stimpy December 19, 2018 - 5:04 PM

None at all, as they never went there.

I can't remember the last time I watched a space video that had so much stuff I didn't know before in it. Well done!

Last ArchAngel December 21, 2018 - 2:46 AM

Can u give us a clearer version of videos taken from the moon

HOMY December 28, 2018 - 8:18 PM

Good thing for them the rover wasn't an Audi. Junk.

Shimul Hasibul January 11, 2019 - 5:34 PM

3:56 look carefully. Why the papers falling down in his lap? There is no gravity in the orbiter. Anyone knows the answer?

My friend's dad still believes the moon is more like a mythical thing, and not even an object.

OG WEASEL February 9, 2019 - 8:08 PM

This is pure BS!!

Samuel Mugo February 27, 2019 - 4:47 PM

unfortunately you do realize no one has been to the moon

Perry Comeau March 3, 2019 - 10:43 PM
