SPACE reports that NASA “has finally released footage of researchers examining...lunar samples for signs of life” after the Apollo 11 mission in 1969. Chemists and biologists at NASA’s Ames Research Center “carefully analyzed samples of moon rocks and soil,” and they “worked in a specially designed clean room, using the most sophisticated analytical techniques of the time, according to a statement from NASA.” Retired biologist Caye Johnson said in the statement, “We had to be careful that we didn’t introduce a microbe into the samples and then falsely say that we’d found life.” (Image: Apollo 11 Lunar Sample Return Container arrives at Ellington AFB, 25 July 1969.
