Moon microbe mystery finally solved


au.news.yahoo.com

There has been a long-lived bit of Apollo moon landing folklore that now appears to be a dead-end affair: microbes on the moon.

The lunar mystery swirls around the Apollo 12 moon landing and the return to Earth by moonwalkers of a camera that was part of an early NASA robotic lander – the Surveyor 3 probe.

The Surveyor 3 camera was easy pickings and brought back to Earth under sterile conditions by the Apollo 12 crew. When scientists analyzed the parts in a clean room, they found evidence of microorganisms inside the camera.

In short, a small colony of common bacteria -- Streptococcus Mitis -- had stowed away on the device.


So the people who worked for NASA ran a dirty un-quarantined show. Bad science people bad science.... they admit to poor standards just 40 years after the fact!

It wouldn't surprise me if the quarantine issue has already been discussed by ATS members and dismissed as hokum by the NASA apologists here several years ago.

Wouldn't surprise me at all.

How the heck would they even get in the camera? Nasa didn't build the cameras did they? I am pretty sure they would just buy them or have them made by people of the time who had the technology to build optical devices?

They did use Kodak film...
