Poop on the Moon!

Yep, you are reading that right. The Minute Physics (same guy that does Smarter Every Minute)asks the question that I am sure we all wondered about, but were afraid to ask, Did the Apollo astronauts leave their poop on the moon? The question arises out of a fairly basic but important limitations. The assent portion of the Apollo Moon Lander could only carry a little over 300kg of material back from the moon. To extend that as far as possible, lander astronauts cast off any items that were no longer needed.
Minute Physics asks in the video below, did the lander ejecta contain some number 2s?
