Moon landing tapes got erased, NASA admits

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 conspiracy will never end until they go again because of this lapse.

What is funny is that the broadcast back then was 640 x 480 pixels and the originals were who knows how big. You would have to look up the camera.  You can see how crappy the videos look because they are out of aspect.  They are turning 4:3 into 16:9. Basically, they are turning 640 x 480 into 1280 x 720.  ::) The magic pixels.

There was a cool show on Discovery tonight called 'When We Left Earth'.  Some great old footage that played more like a movie than a documentary.

I saw that! That was awesome. When you consider what thses guys had to go thru back then and the technology at the time, it is even more amazing. The shots of Earth taken from the moon are great too...

You probably heard that Whoopi G. brought up the theory that we never went to the moon on that wonderful show, "The View".


I wish she would propose this to Buzz Aldrin....

Who disgusts Turbo? Whoopi, Michelle Obama, Barack Obama, Al Sharpton (I'll give you that one), Jesse Jackson, Raheem, etc...

Disgusts may be too strong of a word for Raheem. But you have expressed your fear of having him as a coach.

All rappers.

Exactly.

I saw "Moon" today. Decent Sci Fi. You'll have to search and find an independent theater.

Nice. Maybe it's playing at the mainstream theaters here too. I didn't look hard enough.

Seen it many times. Unless it's something new. If it's the guy I think you're talking about, he's a jackazz and deserved what he got.
