[quote:Anonymous Coward 79062373:MV80NDMzNTc3XzgwNzIxOTY2X0NBOEUwM0Iz] We watched an interesting scene in the miniseries, "The Crown" tonight in which Prince Phillip was all excited to meet Aldrin, Armstrong & Collins upon their triumphant "return from the moon" and how unimpressed he was with them, as it turns out. I think it was, in some small way, the series producers sort of tongue in cheek slap at the whole apollo thing, without saying too much. I am not into the royal family at all but have found the series quite entertaining. [/quote]
Well...that says a lot then hey?
A moon rock given to the Dutch prime minister by Apollo 11 astronauts in 1969 has turned out to be a fake.
Curators at Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum, where the rock has attracted tens of thousands of visitors each year, discovered that the “lunar rock”, valued at £308,000, was in fact petrified wood.
Xandra van Gelder, who oversaw the investigation, said the museum would continue to keep the stone as a curiosity.
“It’s a good story, with some questions that are still unanswered,” she said. “We can laugh about it.”
