According To NASA


Today is the 40th Anniversary of the launching of Apollo 11, and Monday, July 20th, is the 40th Anniversary of Neil Armstrong and Eugene "Buzz" Aldrin being the first humans to walk on the moon.

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

It's kind of like an horrible episode of "According to Jim". Or what they call in the entertainment world, an episode of "According To Jim".... Think about it.... If NASA was a bumbling husband who was simple and didn't know a mop from a spoon, the moonwalk tapes were the wedding videos, and the satellite data was the Super Bowl. Boom.... Horrible sitcom....

  1. Did you see the most recent news? Apparently NASA lost the tapes but Hollywood was able to provide them copies. And not only are they giving them back that which they erased to write over but they are improving the quality and making it HD!!
