Moon Rock Given By NASA To Holland Is Fake, Says Dutch Geologists

The “lunar rock” given to Holland by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on behalf of NASA is actually a “pretty much worthless stone from Earth”, according to geologists from a Dutch university.

Researchers from Amsterdam’s Free University used the latest scientific methods to determine the origin of the rock and were shocked to discover that the “lunar rock”, valued at over half a million dollars, is actually petrified wood.

Xandra van Gelder, who oversaw the investigation, refused to be drawn on why NASA would hand out fake moon rocks, and said the stone would be kept on display at Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum” as a curiosity”.

“It’s a good story, with some questions that are still unanswered,” she said. “We can laugh about it.”

The Dutch may be finding the fake moon rock episode amusing, but Buzz Aldrin and NASA are fuming — and refusing to explain why the moon souvenirs they handed out around the world are being exposed as worthless fakes.

The “moon rock” was given to Willem Drees, a former Dutch leader, during a global tour by Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin following their moon mission in 1969.

The “moon rock” was given to Drees during a goodwill tour by the three apollo 11 astronauts. Curators at the Dutch national museum have found the rock to be a fake and nothing more than a piece of petrified wood.

J. William Middendorf, the former American ambassador to the Netherlands, made the presentation to Mr Drees and the rock was then donated to the Rijksmuseum after his death in 1988.

“I do remember that Drees was very interested in the little piece of stone. But that it’s not real, I don’t know anything about that,” Mr Middendorf said.

The Telegraph report that NASA gave moon rocks to more than 100 countries following lunar missions in 1969 and the 1970s.

The United States Embassy in The Hague is carrying out an investigation into the affair.

Researchers Amsterdam’s Free University were able to tell at a glance that the rock was unlikely to be from the moon, a conclusion that was borne out by tests.

“It’s a nondescript, pretty-much-worthless stone,” said Frank Beunk, a geologist involved in the investigation.

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
