Jarrah White has published a video in his Moon Faker series, LRO, Selene & Clementine, to discredit the photo of the Apollo 15 landing site. His strategy is to pitch it against earlier photos of the landing site taken by the Clementine and Selene/Kaguya spacecraft. Did he accomplish his mission?

This is video 4 in my series. In the final part of Jarrahs video, he builds a qualitative theory on why the lunar module descent engine should have cut a blast crater into the lunar surface. However, the math does not support Jarrahs theory.
