    Lost: moon landing tapes

    I heard on the radio today that NASA has lost the original tape from the first moon landing

    http://cbs4.com/topstories/local_story_227132606.html

    The National Archives returned the tapes to NASA in the 70's and apparently they disappeared.

    The tape as seen on TV and the internet is actually a film of a screen showing the original because NASAs equipment was diffrent from broadcast equipment so the original could not be shown.

    they never existed, it was shot on a soundstage. They lost them, because with todays technolgy they would be proven false....





    ....ok...I'm kidding, but it does suck they are lost.

    Wouldn't CBS News and the other two major networks at the time have copies of those historic broadcasts in their own archives?

    So, the tape seen on TV was a Kinescope... not the original. Easily understandable. What is less understandable is why the National Archives... the official repository of historic Americana... would send the tapes back to NASA.

    Ever since they put up a website, NEVER! It works for both of us. They don't want to deal with me... I don't want to deal with them!

    The original included other info on the trip besides just the moon walk and I guess NASA needed the info. Something I saw a few years ago said that most of their records from that time have become unusable because they are all on magnetic tape which has degraded over time. Maybe the moonlanding tape was in better condition than their backups.
