That totally blows the theory of the moon being made of swiss cheese. Obviously it is finely grated parmesian! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif

But seriously... there is no way to get dust to do that on the Earth. You'd have turbulent little clouds and the gravity is all different.

Great clip, AstroMike. It could have been some of that Area 51 magic sand, though. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

Personally I am certain that they attached wires to the single dust particles ... /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

I think you're onto something! Alan mentioned a few times that Neil's foot was tangled in wires. We were assuming he meant the TV cam cables, but now you got me wondering...

You must have gotten hold of the secret, never-before-heard version of the tape - the one that NASA edited to remove the offensive evidence before releasing it to the public. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_lol.gif

You mean the one Bart Sibrel has? Oh, boy, he'll be quite mad for stealing it from him. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_lol.gif /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_razz.gif

You can also look at this video (http://www.hq.nasa.gov/office/pao/History/alsj/a11/a11v_1101342.mpg) of Aldrin. Somewhere in the middle, he jumps down into the ground, clearly showing the dust behavior also (despite the poor quality).

You don't expect the noble HBs to accept such flimsy evidence, do you? /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif I mean the dust is black in the video! The dust under my bed is light grey! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif Obiviously the dust was airbrused onto the video by the USPeReP. (Ultra Secret Pentagon Revision Painters) /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif
