An Intro to "LOST BIRD" for you PluPerfect, not a full reiteration, but a small, glad start.
Where is the answer to the moon rock contamination question? You were certain that was the missing clue, but then you just drop it for some coordinates once we point out how illogical that argument was?

It doesn't lend your information any extra validity by the way, it seems like it is intended to give your post more credibility or something but I think does the opposite.
Hi, steve - if you truly want to try it, just use the
This a headlinefunction.
'decisively' (AKA fattydash/Patrick1000/dastardly/ etc, etc) has said that he uses these wherever he goes.
What do your videos have to do with Reed's claim that the AGS, PNGS and MSFN Eagle landing site solutions as they were presented to him on the morning of 07/21/1969 were more than 4-5 miles from the ultimately determined landing site figures as determined and officially announced 08/01/1969; 00 41' 15" north and 23 26' 00" east ?????
[In a 2010 book, From the Trench of Mission Control to the Craters of the Moon, H. David Reed, who was Flight Dynamics Officer (FIDO) for the Apollo 11 LM liftoff, details the story behind this unscheduled request for a P22 one orbit before liftoff. Briefly, he and his support team needed an accurate LM position so they could pick a liftoff time that would minimize propellant usage. The various estimates available at that time were scattered over a considerable area. They needed something better. After extensive discussions within the team, Reed choose a method suggested by Pete Williams, the COMPUTER DYNAMICS officer: they would track the CSM with the LM's rendezvous radar and, then, using a separate, accurate determination of the CSM's orbital track over the landing site (as discussed at 121:07:37), work backwards to find the LM.]
[In a June 2011 e-mail, Reed adds: "For Apollo 12 (and subsequent), as you know, we wanted to do a 'pin point' landing, which we had discovered would be impossible without a real fix in LM position before landing. This was accomplished by implementing a post DOI (Descent Orbit Insertion), doppler-tracking scheme devised by Emil Scheisser of MPAD (Mission Planning and Analysis division). The ground would compute the predicted downrange error and send that correction to the crew prior to powered descent ignition. It allowed us to land within a few hundred feet or less of the desired landing site."]
Perhaps we should see water under the LMs !!!! We shall see soon enough.....
Lunar landers use hydrazine and N2O as rocket fuel. One wishes to know if residual gas or reaction products (H2O, CO2, N2) from the rocket engine contaminate the lunar regolith.Thus a soil sample was collected from beneath the LM (figure 1) and sealed in a special environmental sample container for return to earth (figure 5)....
Gibson and Andrawes (1978) studied nitrogen release by crushing soil (very high values due to hydrozine? ).
