Jul 16 - NASA releases clearest videos yet of 1969 moonwalk
 

 
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- NASA released newly restored videos Thursday of two U.S. astronauts taking the world's first steps on the moon.

The images were released just four days before the 40th anniversary of the historic event that captivated the world on July 20, 1969.

Astronaut Neil Armstrong, now 78, was the first to venture onto the moon's surface after the lunar module Eagle landed on the so-called Sea of Tranquility. Following him was Buzz Aldrin, now 79.

The videos are far superior to the initial dark, fuzzy images people watched on their television sets at the time, although they are far from crisp.

A NASA official has said that the original tapes of images sent back to Earth by Apollo 11 have been lost, and the camera that shot them was left on the moon.

Given that, NASA opted to look at all versions of the tapes that had been broadcast and enhance those images. NASA hired a digital restoration firm to make the improvements.

The images on the NASA Web site include a two-minute video montage with highlights of the moonwalk and separate videos of Armstrong and Aldrin descending a ladder to the moon's dusty surface, each of which compares existing footage with partially restored videos.

Another comparison video shows Armstrong reading a commemorative plaque on the lunar module, which says in part: "Here men from the planet Earth first stepped upon the moon - July 1969."

The montage video shows highlights from the Apollo 11 mission, from the launch in Florida to the spacecraft's departure from the moon.

Man thats the first thing that popped into my head. Technology is 100 times better than it was way back then. You'd think it would now be a breeze to go there whenever the hell we want. I think the s*** is fishy too.....

We didn't go back because it wasn't worth it. It takes a lot of time and money, and it's a huge risk. Interest in the space program as a whole declined once we reached that goal, and the big motivation of being the first there was of course missing. So, the focus was on more practical endeavors.

As for the time and money they're going to have to devote to go there now, you have to keep in mind that they aren't planning the same thing. It's not a matter of simply replicating the same mission with much superior technology, that would be a waste. Now, there will be plans to accomplish much more, things for which there isn't a precedent set, and which a lot of research and money need to go into. So yes, technology has advanced, but so have the ambitions for what to accomplish on such a mission. You're not just popping up there again for the hell of it.

There ain't no reason to go back to the moon, there ain't nothing up there and we know that.

Those trips up there to the moon would cost billions of dollars; money that can be used to go to Mars or set up some sort of station in that planet.

If I'm not mistaken, there were six Apollo missions that went to the moon - and since I know somebody will say it's bulls***, I will add this condition - if you believe what the government says.

How the hell could you lose the tape of the moon landing. That would be one of the most historic events to occur. This is bulls***....

No. Do you always question my opinion and fail to present any evidence to the contrary?

That's a rhetorical one, for the record. We both know the anwser.

As a species we feel a push to conquer the unknown, and as a nation, we wanted to do it before the USSR. It helped national morale, provided jobs, and was a push for new technology (with potential to help our side in the Cold War) and scientific understanding.

That moonwalk was fake straight propaganda, no one has ever been to the moon yet, but the U.S did make a fake video out in the desert to make it look like they landed on the moon first so that the U.S can own the rights to that planet. ask yourself why can't they get better images of the moon with all the new technology cant they just zoom in from space and capture all the events that take place on the moon instead of sending space shuttles it would be cheaper.
You lost all credibility before ever attaining it. How does it feel?

It's not stupid when my argument is supported by facts, evidence and logic.

Care to present yours. Or like the rest of the "We haven't been to the moon" brigade, are you unable to post your imaginary facts?
