Astronaut Says ALSEP Equipment Not 1/6 Gravity- is As Heavy As it Was At Cape Canaveral Space Training Center.
In being on the Moon, any weight of people and objects would be 1/6 of the gravity, than they are on Earth. Astronaut Jack in carrying the ALSEP experimental equipment before setting it up in the Fake Moon Bay, says that the equipment weighs almost as much as it did in the Cape Canaveral-Space Training Center. The Cape is where the Astronauts did practice runs in setting up their ALSEP experiment equipment, the exact same equipment in specifications & weight that they used supposedly on the Moon.
Astronaut Jack says at :17 "OK Bob, I think I'm gonna move a little bit to the north-west than my present position, in order to get a little farther away from that big rock....and to get out of a shallow depression.."
Astronaut Jack says at :55 "You know this ALSEP's(experiment equipments) almost as heavy as what we had at the Cape"(Canaveral-Space Training Center, in practice runs)

NASA did redacted editing & cleaning up of the text, to cover what they really said in the written records of the Astronauts conversations. Also in some video's NASA has later recorded different conversations, replacing what was originally spoken.
