NASA restores moon landing film





yagnyavalkya
In the light of a thread in this forum regarding the controversy surrounding the moon landing
I wish to bring it to notice that NASA has yesterday released the restored film of the landing
Please read this
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/8155045.stm
What I see as surprising is that "The space agency says it probably deleted the original footage in the 1970s and 80s, when it had a tape shortage and needed to reuse them."
I just cant believe that NASA which sent men the moon deleted the film because of "tape shortage"
Any views?

There are rumors that it was a fake to start with....

Some people say the moon landing is fake due to the wind blowing the flag. People should have been proud to reach somewhere. But deleting the tape for tape shortage? Surely they could have deleted something else or bought new tapes? They are billionaires! Back then though, they could have used another tape or bought another one.

I thought it was an accident. I can't believe someone would have ok'd these tapes to be deleted. Thank goodness the news still had their's. And no I don't believe it was fake!

Personally, I think the idea of a hoax moon landing film is a hoax however any messing around with film by NASA does raise some sound questions. Were some actions of NASA really planned or were they really simply clumsy. If clumsy how did they manage to achieve anything at all!

There are some smoke and mirrors concerning the film that I don’t see anyone talking about. One of NASA's concern's was funding and in order to achieve funding they had to remain in the public eye.

Watchers just began to not pay attention. Moon exploration became boring stuff so in order to get attention why not create a controversial topic like the moon film hoax. Maybe, just maybe, it is the moon that is the hoax, really doesn’t exist and is actually made of cheese? We as concerned spectators should perhaps keep close watch on this strange object in the sky?

NASA did not land on the moon, it was a hoax.

The absolute proof of this is a photograph of Aldrin standing on the moon
beside the Lunar Lander facing the Sun. The shadow of the Landers pad and
frame is to the left and what appears to be the rocket nozzle at the center of
the picture.

It is easy to tell that its not a hoax. Take for example the Eagle Moon Landing Module when it takes off, the moon dust flies in straight lines. If it was shot on Earth, the dust would make clouds like shapes, like the ones we see in every rocket launch. In space where there is no air, the dust particles fly in straight lines/(make projectiles on the Moon).
The flag was flapping because of inertia. An object in motion continues to be in Motion until an external force stops it. You must have read about this law of physics in high school. It started flapping when the astronauts tried to make the flag pole stand straight and it kept moving. If it was on Earth, the air resistance would finally make the flag stop flapping, unless wind is blowing.
Why do you keep saying we didn't land on the Moon? We did. It was really "a giant leap for mankind." I wait to see the day when humans go to Mars, make colonies there and sail into intergalactic travel. Shocked Cool Cool

i don't think its a hoax, but it seems everyone my age does... i guess i believe that we did something great back then. NASA ROX!!

I don't understand, what about this image makes it proof that it was a hoax.

I don't think they ever landed there =P

There is a lot of debate and I think we should read carefully to infer

I don't find it strange that NASA might have deleted some of the original footage. Remember when we are talking about - the 1960s. Tape for the specialist telemetry was expensive. Once the copies had been made for broadcast it was probably assumed that there was sufficient copies to enable the original tape to be reused.

The supposed evidence of fakery has been dealt with comprehensively many times. The notion that the footage above demonstrates a fraud is, I'm afraid, baloney.

I had a thought regarding these Moon Conspiracy Theories - is it only the first landing that is claimed to be a hoax or are the several others alleged hoaxes as well?

Because if the other landings were for real, then I see no point in the debate whether the first landing were real ... at least from the point of science (politics will have a different view)

A hoax? People still believe that stupid crap? The US landed on the moon at the height of the Space Race/Cold War. The USSR had satellites watching Apollo 11 the entire time. They watched it leave Earth, land on the moon, leave the moon, and return to Earth. If they hadn't landed on the moon, you don't think the USSR would have said so? Of course they would have. But they said nothing because they knew Apollo 11 landed on the moon.

Also watch the episode of Mythbusters where they dealt with a lot of the so-called "evidence" supporting the hoax theory.

Is there no colour footage of the first moon landings?,why go all that way having spent all that money and not take some colour film to film themselves while on the moon.

Not a Hoax - how did we get Teflon.

Without the landing the Shuttle wouldnt have been made from the knowledge gained

i have one clear way of finding out.

They hit a golf ball from the Moon - now this should still be spinning around the Moon - find that ball and its true.

Unless its a Titleist because you can never find them Razz
