I heard this earlier on CNN. The first thing I thought is that the whacko who lives in the trailer, out in the desert, with all of those cats will have a field day with this one!:cyclops:

It's amazing how the Roman Empire was more efficient at recording their history than we are today. :bangpan:

A copy of all those tapes should have been stored at the Smithsonian Institution. Don't leave it to NASA to save our history...

<Morning Edition, July 16, 2009 · An exhaustive, three-year search for some tapes that contained the original footage of the Apollo 11 moonwalk has concluded that they were probably destroyed during a period when NASA was erasing old magnetic tapes and reusing them to record satellite data.>

The "We never landed on the moon" conspiracy nuts will love this...
