Why Apollo Astronauts Trained at a Nuclear Test Site

  • 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.

    So the Earth is ~4.5B years old since the astronomical event that cause the moon to form. The universe is ~14B years old. Life evolved to the state that is in roughly 1/3 of the life of the universe. Who is to say that we are the first intelligent life forms on Earth? How do we know that there wasn't another that was obliterated by the event that cause the moon to form?

    Not true, when they “put the rocks in the module” they never let the rocks come in contact with oxygen cause they had a certain material bag that was then sealed tight, but all that is fake seeing that we didn’t go to the moon 😂

    If the Apollo Astronauts got stuck on the moon, my biggest worry would have been lack of oxygen. Because they would have had enough cheese to last a lifetime.

    They practiced and recorded in the same spot. If you think they actually went to the moon and then “lost” the technology to get there, then I see why you push the Climate change billion year propaganda.

    hm my guess was that, when you're in space, you don't have the atmosphere to protect you from radiation, and they wanted to expose the astronauts to fallout radiation to test their bodies and see if there would be any biological effects of exposure.

    I imagine if there were people around during the time when that meteor impacted earth, maybe someone was just close enough to the impact site to either witness it or at least hear it. They probably got very stressed that day jeez

    A much more simple explanation would be that the "moon rocks" are just unusual earth rocks collected, you know, on Earth. Instead, you've gone off down some tangent and created this entire elaborate story of how the moon was formed from a collision with the earth. No. Moon rocks are similar to earth rocks, because they are earth rocks.

    So he's implying the moon landing was not staged and that those dust samples are as real as the moon rock donated to Holland which happened to be petrified wood?

    Could it be the 900 plus nuclear test detonations in the southwest of the USA ,or the radioactive particles created from said tests , that caused the high cancer rates of Americans who live during that era?

    Great video, I noticed the truck on the clip at 4:09 looks eerily like the International Harvester flatbed my Grandpa drives, but that emblem on the front looks like the IH logo, it's just the quality.

    why would you need to test a weapon for hundreds of times ? you should stop after a few knowing the danger of those bombs, unless they were used to destroy traces of something ?
