NASA has been widely criticised for erasing and re-using the tapes containing the original recordings of the first manned Moon landing 40 years ago, but now newly restored high quality copies are about to be revealed.

"The original recordings of the first humans landing on the moon 40 years ago were erased and re-used, but newly restored copies of the original broadcast look even better, NASA officials said on Thursday."

The truth is MID rather if you are in the dark or rather if you knew what went down, is that the tapes are sitting in a vault somewhere.There is no way the original mission footage could be shown to us common folks. I mean we should just be happy with the ones that were fabricated for our enjoyment. The mission was landed, but if the public was shown what was truly on the surface, bricks would be excreted.

Pitiable, I think..."Assigned?"And then of course, there's this immediate turnabout...again: Were you planning on filling us in on this pattern, or will you simply continue playing this game?

Comment icon #63 Posted by MID on 22 July, 2009, 21:12
No one either hid them or erased them for no reason.
