"Aug. 15, 2006 NASA officials are searching for the original videotapes from the first moon landing in 1969 in the hopes that they can use modern technology to produce sharper images of the event.
The video, including footage of Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walking on the moon, was transmitted from the moon to tracking stations in California and Australia. The images that were then sent to Houston, and seen by the rest of the world were substantially degraded.
Space program veterans believe the original tracking station recordings are stored somewhere at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. Telephone calls Monday night to NASA and Goddard spokesmen were not immediately returned."
This was posted in 2006, and the tapes are still missing. Scientists are some of the most gullible people around. If Uri Geller can dupe scientists, then it's not that difficult for a "credible" source such as NASA to do the same. Why don't they just give up on this scam? Maybe it's because they stole 30 billion in taxpayer dollars back then. If NASA officially admits the hoax, then NASA funding will probably be reduced. I'm sure that plenty of NASA insiders know that this is a scam.
In a TV interview NASA chief Dan Golden, (alias Dan Dare), openly admitted that mankind cannot venture beyond Earth orbit, until they can overcome the dangers of cosmic radiation. He managed to say this without any mention, or reference to the Apollo missions 37 years ago.
Moon rocks don't prove that a manned lunar mission was accomplished. NASA unmanned probe(s) could have collected 187 lbs of moon rocks, or the rocks could simply be meteorites.
Here's more info on the lost video tapes:
