The moon landings, original tapes were erased and reused after program managers quote determined. There was no longer a need to keep them and quote nasa admitted i mean. I sorry i can’t believe that uh, please leave your comments, but i for one uh, you know, are you a of course you have to keep them. This was the first moon landing in the history of man. So how is it that you’re determining you don’t longer need them now on june on july 20th, which is of course in a couple of days, an anniversary of the landing july, 20th 1969, the space agency completed the what seemed to be the impossible mission of landing. The man on the moon, neil armstrong and buzz aldrin fulfilled president john f kennedy’s goal. They brought an end to the space race when they touched down at tranquility base armstrong jumped off the lunar lander eagle six hours later and delivered his one small step speech to the millions watching anxiously back on earth before aldrin joined him about 20 minutes later. But some of that original footage was lost forever. It was recorded in slow scan, meaning that it had an output of 10 frames per second and so could not be directly broadcast on television. Kindly support my patreon account since youtube has again demonetized my youtube channel. The daily posts are five videos daily and they are totally different from what i have on my youtube channel. Thank you so much for your support and that you find all my content so interesting.

You’Ll find the patreon account details in the description box below according to nasa. This footage was converted for broadcast and uplinked to a satellite, then downlinked to houston before it appeared on commercial television as the real time broadcast worked and was widely recorded. Preservation of the backup video has not deemed necessary in the years after the mission, it was not deemed necessary. What can i tell you? The search for these laws. Tapes began in 2006 and the agency conducted an intensive investigation at that time, but, of course, could not find the footage nasa admitted back in 2019. An intensive search of archives and records concluded that most likely scenario was that the program managers determined there was no longer a need to keep the tapes since all the video was recorded elsewhere and they were erased and reused in the 80s nasa’s landsat program was facing A severe data tape shortage, so it’s believed the tapes were erased and reused. Then i mean i’m. Sorry is this believable, as as, as a matter of information to us nasa reaffirmed, there is no missing footage from apollo 11, since the video transmissions were relayed to the manned spacecraft center in houston. During the mission, the agency restored footage from the landing and released it in 2009. For the 40th anniversary of apollo 11. nasa engineer, dick nafsker said there was no video that came down slow scan that was not converted. Live fed, live to houston and fed live to the world, so just in case anyone thinks there’s a video out there.

That has not been seen. That is not the case. Nasa has not lost any of the apollo footage. Only the original tapes. With that footage again, i can’t believe this. The original tapes lost it’s, not the first time incredible. Footage has been uncovered from that event, though, released in 2019, apollo 11 producer, tud, douglar miller, produced by toddler miller, took the event which centered around grainy footage and revolutionized. It to hollywood cinematic heights, the 90 minute time capsule is made up of previously unseen archive footage from the apollo program and it’s. All thanks to steven slattler slatter, the archivist, who sifted through years of newly available 70 millimeter images miller, said back in 2019 that’s how it really started. Could we tell this story of apollo 11 using only archive materials? He mr slatter, was working on this really crazy notion of trying to synchronize mission control footage with the air to ground transmissions that were available to the public, and it was really tedious work important nonetheless, because it just makes the imagery come alive. He said if there was ever going to be a medal for synchronization of archive work. Steven slatter should get it. This is by callum horror on express uk.
