The original Neil Armstrong tape
January 11, 2007 4:17 AM Subscribe
If you thought the video of Neil Armstrong setting foot on the Moon was rather blurry, it might interest you to know that this was never broadcast as well as it could have been. The original video quality was much better. You can't view the original video today, because NASA has lost the bleepin tape
. Nobody seems to care, but the guys who once made the transmission possible are looking for it. An Australian minister
is on their side. If the tape hasn't been accidentally degaussed, there's only one machine left that is able to read it.
