Accident on moon trip

The accident-prone history of a Moon rock blasted by meteors has been shown by geologists. The lunar rock was battered by a meteor impact at least three times before a fourth strike sent it flying into space.Edwin Gnos of the University of Bern in Switzerland and his colleagues discovered the rock in the deserts of Oman in 2002. They believed it was extraordinary as most meteorites are magnetised and almost black in colour, but this one was greenish and not magnetic. "We knew it must be a special meteorite, maybe lunar or Martian," says Gnos.

The team sent a fragment of the rock, which is about the size of an adult fist, back to the Open University in Milton Keynes, UK, for analysis. The ratios of oxygen isotopes inside the rock proved it must have come from the Moon
The rock is named Sayh al Uhaymir (SaU) 169, after the desert area it comes from. After studying it for more than a year, Gnos and his colleagues have now pinned down its history in unprecedented detail.

His son, Scott Grissom said the accident was a murder.[54] Ed White (Apollo 1 fire, January 1967) Roger Chaffee (Apollo 1 fire, January 1967) Ed Givens (car accident, 1967) C. C.

All but one of the astronaut deaths (Irwin's) were directly related to their job with NASA or the Air Force. Two of the astronauts, Mike Adams and Robert Lawrence, had no connection with the civilian manned space program. Astronaut James Irwin had suffered several heart attacks in the years prior to his death. There is no independent confirmation of Gelvani's claim that Irwin was about to come forward. All but one of the deaths occurred at least one or two years before Apollo 11 and the subsequent flights.
