....The smearing on the reseau plate is absolutely not a spill, it is very obviously a smear that has dried, and could be on the magazine itself, the lens or the plate. He claims to identify when the smear occurred (and may well be correct) but there is self-evidently no liquid involved in the footage he shows....
All of the Apollo spacecraft included onboard voice recorders, activated during much of each mission to record the crew's conversations. The transcripts of those recordings were publicly released in the mid-1970s and they have been posted on the Internet for years. But only recently were the actual onboard recordings from Apollo 11 digitized so that the recordings could be made available on the Internet.
The Apollo 11 Onboard Audio Tape Database cross references the tape numbers to the Mission Elapsed Time (MET) that was on each tape. The database includes a description of the mission status at that time. It is best to listen to the tapes while simultaneously viewing the same mission elapsed time on the transcript, since often the recordings are faint.
The digitized recordings are available here in the same form as they were recorded during the mission. As a result, they are noisy with technical interference that occurred during their recording and transmission. They are sometimes garbled and sometimes have long periods of no voice. They are not listed in chronological order but rather in the order that data was dumped onto storage tapes during the mission. A single tape may include recordings from several different periods of the mission.

The very first moon rock gift was given, with much fanfare, by Spiro Agnew to President Marcos of the Philippines on December 31, 1969.
So there is no way that a moon rock was given away by the US ambassador almost three months earlier, on October 9. It would have been huge news.
