Apollo Intrepid and Surveyor 3- NASA
Apollo 12 landed on the Lunar surface in the Ocean of Storms on November 19, 1969. Astronauts Pete Conrad and Alan Bean made two Moon walks (EVA). On the second EVA, they descended into Surveyor crater collecting rock samples on their way down to the Surveyor 3 spacecraft.

One of the rock samples collected was 12407 on the northeast side of Surveyor crater as the astronauts initially made their way around the crater rim. I marked the area in yellow where the sample was collected on the NASA Lunar sample map below:

The Museum of Flight located in Seattle, WA has on display a portion of the Apollo 12 Lunar sample 12407 now labeled as 12407,6.

Molecular magnetic fields are generated from the atomic arrangement of bonded atoms in their molecular form. The area-specific weak fields can be extracted from audio recorded at these sites as well as matched directly from geological samples. See “Extracting Molecular Magnetic Fields” from Audio for more information.
I know this because of a particular pattern recognition ability I have with weak electromagnetic fields. It is a similar process to that of developing the skill of human echolocation but in this case it is the skill of interpreting weak electromagnetic fields and their physiological effect on the body and most likely other biological life.
Two sources for replicating the weak molecular magnetic field at Surveyor crater are the actual audio voice recordings of the astronauts when they made their way into the crater and also by a direct match from the Lunar sample 12407,6 at the Museum of Flight. It is now possible to incorporate these weak field matches into an audio visual simulation of this Moon walk via a recreated electromagnetic field from an electrical coil and also by wearing material tuned to the area specific weak fields of Surveyor crater. We are taking Lunar surface simulation to the next level through the addition of these weak magnetic fields that the body recognizes. They are the same weak fields that the Apollo 12 astronauts encountered at the crater.
I have created two mp3 audio files for the weak molecular magnetic fields at Surveyor crater. The first mp3 is the matched compound frequencies of the Apollo 12 Lunar sample 12407,6 that represents the area-specific weak field the astronauts encountered at the crater. As they descend into Surveyor crater this baseline field changes as they approach the surveyor spacecraft. The magnetic field elevates due to the material makeup of the spacecraft. In a way, Pete Conrad and Alan Bean act as biological sensors as the changes in the weak fields are captured in their voice communications.
Remember, it is not the mechanical sound waves from your speaker that we are focusing on when you play the mp3 files but the oscillating electromagnetic field emanating from your speaker’s audio coil. This weak field has a physiological effect on the body and is the basis of the field replication for Surveyor crater.

Elevated Weak Field due to Surveyor 3 Spacecraft
Below is the audio transcript of the Apollo 12 astronauts at Surveyor crater. I have marked on the transcript the approximate time when the weak molecular magnetic field begins to elevate as they approach the Surveyor 3 spacecraft. Both the actual audio recording I used to extract the weak Lunar fields and transcript are from NASA’s Apollo 12 Lunar Surface Journal and the Bernie Scrivener Audio Tapes.
133:51:35 Gibson: Roger. We copy those comments. Pete and Al, we show you’re 2 plus 23 into the EVA and, based on a 4-hour EVA, you would be leaving the Surveyor at 2 plus 50. But don’t rush; we’d like to make sure you get a good rest before you go into it (the crater).
133:51:51 Conrad: Okay.
133:51:52 Bean: Why don’t you give me a rock or two, Pete? And I will stick in there. Got any spares? (Pause) There you go. Good rock. Good rock! (Pause)
133:52:07 Conrad: (Chuckling) The world’s greatest juggling act. (Garbled)
133:52:11 Bean: Okay. That’ll be it. (To Ed) We just made a sample of a glass bead and some local rock on the south edge of the Surveyor Crater, Houston. And they’re going into bag 14D.
133:52:29 Gibson: 14D.
133:52:30 Conrad: (Garbled) brings back all of our training. I’m trying to remember who the guy was that kept saying “whatever you do, don’t get dust on the gnomon.” (Hearty laughter from both) Okay. We are going to jog on here for a little bit, Houston, and get a little bit closer to the Surveyor and look her over. (Pause)
133:52:55 Bean: Yeah. Hey, that’s…coming in from the south; looks like a good way, Pete.
133:52:59 Conrad: I’ll tell you what I’m going to do, Al. I am just gonna lope right around here.
133:53:02 Bean: That’s what I mean. If you stay at this level, you’ll end up at Surveyor.
133:53:05 Conrad: You’re right.
133:53:07 Bean: Follow the contour lines.
133:53:08 Conrad: No problem at all, Houston! (Pause) Look at the (Surveyor) scoop sticking out. You couldn’t see that before.
133:53:18 Gibson: Pete and Al, could you give us a comment on how far you’re sinking in?
133:53:24 Conrad: Not sinking in very far at all. This is fairly firm stuff. And I’m down in the crater about the same distance down that Surveyor is. I’m just going around it radially (means “circumferentially”). Wouldn’t you say so, Al?
133:53:41 Bean: Yeah, I would say that…I think Houston is just as concerned about us getting down in this crater. We been thinking about it, too, Houston. (Garbled under Pete)
133:53:47 Conrad: Okay. Yeah, don’t worry about it, Houston, because, really, it’s no strain; I’m 200 feet away from it; I’m at the same level; the ground is firm; and I can go right back up the way I came down with no strain at all.
133:54:02 Bean: That’s right.
133:54:03 Gibson: Roger. Sounds good.
133:54:04 Bean: It’s just exactly the way we thought it was going to be when we were talking about it. (Responding to Ed) Yeah, it is. I don’t think there’ll be any sweat about it.
Note by Tom Jacobs: This is the approximate time that the base line weak field begins to elevate. The astronauts are about 200 feet away from Surveyor 3.
133:54:09 Conrad: Al, I’ll tell you what let’s do. Get right over here, and we’ll park all of our gear, take ourselves a little rest, go over your photo plan, and then we’ll have at it.
Here is a video I put together a while back on the weak area-specific weak field frequencies of Apollo 12 at Surveyor crater.
