 Quoting: antwan

So they never did find the original tapes as was trumpeted in a lot of threads posted by moon landing fanboys on GLP at the beginning of the week, they all lied and twisted what it is that NASA is releasing.
-------------

Houston, We Erased The Apollo 11 Tapes
[link to www.npr.org]

An exhaustive, three-year search for some tapes that contained the original footage of the Apollo 11 moonwalk has concluded that they were probably destroyed during a period when NASA was erasing old magnetic tapes and reusing them to record satellite data.

"I don't think anyone in the NASA organization did anything wrong," Nafzger says. "I think it slipped through the cracks, and nobody's happy about it."(Yea right, destroy the highly clear images revealing support cable wires, that is all they did)

NASA has, however, offered up a consolation prize for the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission — the agency has taken the best available(incredulity shitty) broadcast television footage and contracted with a digital restoration firm to enhance(add in lots of stuff that was never there) it, so that the public can see the first(unreal) moonwalk in more detail than ever before.

But the lost tapes mean that the world will probably never again see the original images beamed back to Earth by the lunar camera that is now resting on the moon's dusty Sea of Tranquility, right where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin left it.

Lunar Camera Tapes Were Higher Quality

That special lunar camera recorded in an odd format that was incompatible with the format used for broadcast TV. So when the footage was received on Earth back in July of 1969, it had to be converted for the live television broadcast.(NASA never thought after spending billions of dollars to have a conversion for broadcast TV reception, yea right, I believe that one)

The conversion(there was no conversion, all the TV channels did was film straight off the monitor at Houston) degraded the images, and hundreds of millions of TV viewers saw dark, murky pictures.

Those pictures were still thrilling(Only for gullible, demented idiots) — after all, it was "Live from the Moon!"(yea right, tell us another one) and a human was walking on another celestial body for the very first time — but some experts knew that the lunar camera was capable of doing better.(gGee, why didn't the 'experts' think of having a direct 'conversion' system set up for the TV networks for Apollo 11)

If you read carefully, you will note that most of the talk claiming the missing tapes were recovered came from the conspiracy-minded side. Those of us with a reputation for agreeing with mainstream science were much more cautious; pointing out there had not been any release from NASA claiming the tapes were recovered.

We didn't make the claim, and neither did NASA. The hoax believers were the ones pushing it.

Indeed, thank you nomuse. It should also be pointed out that at high noon today, NASA will release the first photos showing the apollo hardware photographed by the LRO. I'm sure the hardcore conspiracy theorists won't let such evidence get in the way of their fun, but for sane individuals it will put an end to the ultimate unanswered question; why can't we see it now? Well folks, we just did, and it's being unveiled today.

> Larger image A team of Apollo-era engineers who helped produce the 1969 live broadcast of the moonwalk acquired the best of the broadcast-format video from a variety of sources for the restoration effort. These included a copy of a tape recorded at NASA's Sydney, Australia, video switching center, where down-linked television from Parkes and Honeysuckle Creek was received for transmission to the U.S.; original broadcast tapes from the CBS News Archive recorded via direct microwave and landline feeds from NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston; and kinescopes found in film vaults at Johnson that had not been viewed for 36 years.

"The restoration is ongoing and may produce even better video," said Richard Nafzger, an engineer at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., who oversaw television processing at the ground tracking sites during Apollo 11. "The restoration project is scheduled to be completed in September and will provide the public, future historians, and the National Archives with the highest quality video of this historic event."

NASA contracted with Lowry Digital of Burbank, Calif., which specializes in restoring aging Hollywood films and video, to take the highest quality video available from these recordings, select the best for digitization, and significantly enhance the video using the company's proprietary software technology and other restoration techniques.

Under the initial effort, Lowry restored 15 scenes representing the most significant moments of the three and a half hours that Armstrong and Aldrin spent on the lunar surface. NASA released the video Thursday at a news conference at the Newseum in Washington.

On July 20, 1969, as Armstrong made the short step off the ladder of the Lunar Excursion Module onto the powdery lunar surface, a global community of hundreds of millions of people witnessed one of humankind's most remarkable achievements live on television.

The black and white images of Armstrong and Aldrin bounding around the moon were provided by a single small video camera aboard the lunar module. The camera used a non-standard scan format that commercial television could not broadcast.

NASA used a scan converter to optically and electronically adapt these images to a standard U.S. broadcast TV signal. The tracking stations converted the signals and transmitted them using microwave links, Intelsat communications satellites, and AT&T analog landlines to Mission Control in Houston. By the time the images appeared on international television, they were substantially degraded.

At tracking stations in Australia and the United States, engineers recorded data beamed to Earth from the lunar module onto one-inch telemetry tapes. The tapes were recorded as a backup if the live transmission failed or if the Apollo Project needed the data later. Each tape contained 14 tracks of data, including bio-medical, voice, and other information; one channel was reserved for video.

A three-year search for these original telemetry tapes was unsuccessful. A final report on the investigation is expected to be completed in the near future and will be publicly released at that time.
