A series of original and unedited Apollo 17 videos

The most successful Apollo mission has been the Apollo 17 mission. The stay of the Apollo 17 crew on the Moon did produce a series of mpg-videos. The original and unedited videos have a great value. So we will publish anew  these videos and here is the first video to begin with.

Apollo 17 videos – part 1.

China’s Chang’e 5 has landed on the moon..
China’s Chang’e 5 has taken pictures of the moon. I researched the images and added arrow marks to better highlight important points.


Soviet Lunar Dust – Regolith or Regolito

Almost all the Moon surface is covered by Moon  Dust called Lunar Regolith (Regolito). Taking the form of dirt, dust, soil and/or sand.

The Apollo astronauts have described the Moon dust as ardent and gritty. Moondust smells like burnt gunpowder.

Regolith is produced when micrometeorites plow into lunar rocks at high-impact velocities. The impacts create high temperatures melting the soil and the impact particles creating transparent glass like structures – the regolith sand.

Landing on the Moon is messy. Glassy, abrasive, toxic, inches-deep regolith everywhere. (More about regolith you can read here: NASA´s Dirty Secret or here: The Lunar Regolith.)

In this Soviet Moon Dust Video you will see images of the small regolith particles collected by Luna-14 rover and send back to Earth. Please observe the anomaly-type figures on these dust particles at time from 1:44 to 1:54. (Also please note that the Apollo samples in the next video after this video verify and do reflect more or less equal type of anomalies.)
