Unseen Moon Landing Video Released

CmdrTaco posted more than 3 years ago | from the nice-soundstage dept.

Australia 212

bazzalunatic writes "Digitally remastered footage of the moon landing, including high-quality and brighter images of Neil Armstrong stepping off the ladder will be shown for the first time ever to the general public at an awards ceremony in Sydney, Australia. The magnetic data tapes seem to have all been lost — erased — by NASA, so all that's left are VHS recordings, which have been restored, giving the best-ever film of the whole moon landing. The publicity over this seems to be pushing NASA into releasing the whole 3-hour recording."

What I heard was the Moon landing was done on a soundstage with a sandbox as a set and Bungee cords for moving.

This story just proves it I mean how likely is it that just found a Vhs copy in someone garage and all the high quality masters just happened to be erased ??? (Lol.... ducks... sorry Nasa type people joke..... )

So... Taken with a high definition camera, beamed 400,000 km, received in Australia, displayed on a low resolution screen, recorded with a camera pointed at said screen, sent around the world to the US, saved on reel to reel tapes, dubbed from reel to reel to VHS, digitized and uploaded to a computer, digitally enhanced, and then made available to the world on the internet. And even ignoring the fact that every step of the process could only ever remove information, it's still probably one of the most important and historically interesting videos humanity has ever created.

"After some digging, they found that in the 1980s someone made a VHS tape of the Honeysuckle Creek magnetic tape, "a bootleg copy if you like, that was severely degraded," John says. A copy of that copy was given to an Apollo enthusiast who was tracked down to Sydney by the search team. This footage included a brighter and clearer version of Apollo 11 mission commander Neil Armstrong's descent to the lunar surface and was used to replace the darker Goldstone images at the start of the broadcast."

commodore64_love (1445365) | more than 3 years ago | (#33747242)

There was no VHS at the time of the airing of the First, Second, or Third Doctors either.

Nevertheless some of the lost episodes were recovered from VHS or Betamax because that's all we have left. Perhaps some engineer copied the original 1969 tapes over to a VHS collection. Then the originals were erased by an idiot, so all that's left are the backups.

Aside - VHS is a really crummy format for storage. Only ~320 pixels across by 486 scanlines. The original magnetic tapes from 1969 probably offered the full resolution possible with NTSC-I, or about ~640x480. Super VHS can capture that full resolution, but not regular VHS.

hazee (728152) | more than 3 years ago | (#33748228)

Am I right in thinking that data recovery firms (and government agencies) can pull data off a hard drive, even after it's been overwritten - possibly several times? (Yes, if you overwrite it with random noise, that might make it hard to guess what was there before, but if you just record a normal file or video over the top, that'll have a set of known statistics that make it possible to subtract out and recover the earlier data.)

And if that's the case, why can't they recover the original recordings - which must surely rank amongst some of the most important ever made? It's not like NASA doesn't have the money or the expertise to do this.

Re:NASA erased the origionals? did I read that rig (4, Interesting)

geekoid (135745) | more than 3 years ago | (#33747516)

SOP.

Tapes where expensive and took a while to get. SOP was to reuse the tapes.
Hey, you wouldn't want them wasting tax dollars on a tape that would just be sitting around, would you?
It's important to remember the context. From pretty much everyones point of view, they would be going to the moon so often it wouldn't be a big deal.

And they where only reused one they had been ensured it had been taped for broad cast. That meant there where many copies in many formats. well 3 formats I think.

There was also a format issue in the 80's the made them reuse tapes for a period. IIRC

Right, because Betacam and VHS recorders were not readily available, so they destroyed original footage of monumental achievements.

I understand the root cause: NASA has since the '70s been under-funded but still - they could have saved the footage by going to newer, superior and less expensive formats and preserve the original media.

But the old man isn't really old. He has a strong, young body. He could stand up and go play another football match. Score another touchdown. But he's too tired, so he'll just play the old tape. Over and over again.

Oh you romantic old fools. There is no place for humans in space. Yes, the Space Race was daring, but ultimately it takes too much energy, too much technology, and unlike a football touchdown, there's nothing out there. No air, no water, no gravity, all things we need.

Just like not all people are built to play football, well, no human is built for space. We can send probes and satellites, but that's it. Nothing has happened in space because space is useless. Get over it. If anyone is playing old tapes over and over, it's the Space Nutters.

You are still young, yet you pine for 40 year old dreams. There are TONS of things to do RIGHT HERE. Life extension, for one.

It does bring into question what the point is of having an "archive" if you are deciding to take the media in the archive and overwrite it. It seems like somebody going into the Louvre and saying "I need to paint a new masterpiece, I'll just take this old Mona Lisa canvas and paint over it."

I don't think they ever taped anything on the moon. Everything was transmitted down to earth and taped on the ground later; Palmcorders hadn't been invented yet.

At the time of the Moon landing, three stations - Goldstone in California, Honeysuckle Creek in Canberra, and Parkes in New South Wales - simultaneously recorded the events onto magnetic data tape. The direct recordings were not of broadcast quality, says John, so they had to set up a regular TV camera pointed at a small black-and-white TV screen in the observatory to obtain higher-quality images that could be relayed to television stations around the world.

They didn't use the TV camera to obtain a higher quality, but to convert from the odd signal used by NASA [1] to PAL/NTSC.

1: the nonstandard TV signals were used to make video transmission possible in the small amount of bandwidth available.

Oh, good, the remastered moon landing. In a year or two we'll get the special edition, with all new special effects. The once-lifeless moon will have all manner of alien life. Probably the golf ball will swing first at the astronauts.

Additional footage of the astronauts' training will be released, but it will be unpopular with fans of the oringal moon landing. Much of the criticism will focus on a goofy sidekick they meet, who somehow seems to play an important role in spite of being a babbling fool.

Later there will be a DVD release with the SE footage alongside the video as it originally aired. HD and 3D versions will follow eventually.

In this episode, NASA astronaut Neil Armstrong famously steps out of Apollo 11 to plant a flag on the surface of the moon. In the remastered edition, we've added a backdrop of stars, corrected shadows and lighting and out of place crosshairs, and updated background scenery to include more realistic footprints. Fans of the moon landing will appreciate the realistic crater at the landing site, the moondust being compressed by the lander, the correction of the flapping flag and the dialog now has the proper transmission delay.
