It's not one of those archaic Leslie Speakers?

The most beautiful sight in orbit ... is a urine dump at sunset.
did they leave a waste bag on the moon?Yes, anything they didn't absolutely need for their return journey was left on the Moon.
EM field would interrupt & affect the hydrogen molecule?If you hit a hydrogen with a sufficiently energetic photon (in the UV range of the spectrum), you can disrupt it.
You can measure these vibrations with infra-red spectroscopyCorrection: I found out today that a symmetric diatomic molecule like hydrogen or nitrogen does not show up in infra-red spectroscopy, as the molecule needs to have an overall electrical field in order to interact strongly with photons (electromagnetic radiation).
can they roll out new vaccines faster than the virus rolls out new mutants?No, but they have a fairly effective system in place for influenza:
we would need more than 125% of the population vaccinated.The existing vaccines are all designed to be effective against the original (Wuhan) variant*
And that's without excluding children and refuseniks.
And jets seem to defy light speed limitationsEternal Student gave the explanation for this, but he omitted the not-so-obvious name for them: Superluminal Jets.
What happens to domestic chickens if they're set free in the wild, can they still survive?On a visit to Kauai (one of the Hawaiian Islands), we saw many wild chickens.
And what of the state of neutron stars? They are seen, yet the matter is very abnormal, what laws explain these adequatleyNeutron stars have a density which is high (about the density of a Uranium nucleus), but a mass which is low enough that the escape velocity is less than c, so light can escape.
Governments are not responsible for stopping variantsIt appears that the UK restrictions will continue for another couple of weeks, because the government didn't think it was responsible for controlling variants either.
