Apollo 11: the Never-before-seen video reveals some of the lunar samples, were being searched for signs of life

to connectVideoApollo 11 lunar landing: with A short timeline between 1961 and 1969

Apollo 11 landed on the Moon on July 20, 1969. Here is a brief timeline of the events that lead up to the historic moment of President john f. Kennedy’s call to action in 1961, and in ‘The Eagle has landed” in 1969.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 moon landing approaches, NASA, a never-before-seen footage of the scientists monitoring the moon for samples that were brought back for any signs of life.

The previously unseen 16-millimeter footage show the biologists and the chemists at NASA’s Ames Research Center in California, working in a specially designed clean room performing a series of experiments.

“We were very concerned about the contamination of the samples with our own germs,” said the now-retired biologist, Caye Johnson, in a statement. “We had to be careful that we don’t introduce a bug in the samples, and then falsely say that we want to live in it.”

The video was posted to NASA’s YouTube channel, and it is shown in the following figure.

Although the possibility of cross-contamination is always an issue for space missions, NASA said the first manned mission to the Moon was particularly important because it is in contact with the lunar samples.

The outside of the shipping package that the lunar soil had been sterilized prior to they are opened up. The samples are recorded as a nesting doll, in jars, in a jars inside of bags,” and were delivered in a very friendly environment,” the government agency added in a statement.

The researchers used the glove boxes and sealed the boxes with a flexible glove to offer an additional biological barrier by using higher air pressure, in an attempt to stop the infection.

It may seem like a trivial task, but it is 50 years ago that NASA couldn’t rule out the possibility that life on the Moon, and in view of the fact that the bacteria live in all kinds of environments.

“Why did we have more than 300 different situations? Because it is on the Earth today, bacteria can live in all sorts of strange environments that you wouldn’t expect,” Johnson added.

After a few months of testing, including the use of the microscope, and nutrients to promote the growth potential of organisms,” not a life was to be found.

In June, the space agency said that it would be more scientists and researchers the opportunity to look at the rock samples from the Moon by the various Apollo missions, and with the help of the 21st century.

From 1969 to 1972, 12 astronauts brought back lunar samples, weighing a total of 842 pounds. Some of the stones and the soil, the samples were vacuum-packed at the Moon, and have not been exposed to the atmosphere of the Earth. Some of them were frozen and stored in liquid oxygen and liquid helium, and after Apollo 11 splashed down, and it remained untouched.
