HOW DOES ONE OF THE MOST SIGNIFICANT MOMENT IN MANKIND'S HISTORY CARELESSLY GET ERASED?
NOT JUST ONE TAPE, BUT NUMEROUS TAPES!
Moon Landing Tapes Got Erased, NASA Claims

Major setback for US return to moon
You Would Think We Would Have Been Back By Now


The Absurdity Of The Erased Moon Videotapes Allegation
You Need To Reason Simple Facts Before Accepting A Poor Excuse of Stupidity
NewsFocus, 071709

So let's get this straight... arguably the most significant moment in mankind's history, recorded on countless hours and hours of videotape, was somehow errantly erased and then recorded over? Seriously? Days and days of tapes, all accidentally recorded over?

To claim that just one out of the vast number of recorded tapes was accidentally taken and recorded over is a stretch in itself. These archive films would more than likely have been significantly marked and stored in a place of high security. To say that they were easily accessible and not well marked is a seemingly disingenuous excuse, if not possibly just a bald faced lie. For some inept NASA employee to just stumble into this secure archive and naively take a film from this historic collection is a stretch in itself, but to claim that they took all of the video and erased it and then recorded over it is highly questionable and quite unbelievable.

Again, the most significant moment in mankind's history, cavalierly destroyed with no safeguards in place to prevent its destruction. Really?

Many who have studied the moon landing films find the claims of the US landing there to be false. To allege that historic footage of mankind's greatest achievement could so easily be recorded over is as questionable as the actual moon footage itself.

As one of a generation who watched the events live on television, there were many questions apparent to even a young school boy, let alone the trained eye of a scientific investigator. Many questions have been raised about various anomalies in the actual recorded footage, numerous discrepancies which could have been analyzed in this new highly technological age of video imaging and enhancement. It is most questionable and extremely suspicious that these original videotapes would be conveniently destroyed and no longer available for digital scrutiny.

What is even more dubious is that the folks in Hollywood, the experts in faking reality, would be tasked with the restoration of copies found elsewhere from outside sources. Why not ask experts such as Ampex, Sony, or a host of other technical companies who specialize in developing and advancing the technology, rather than an industry that is known for simply using and exploiting the medium?

So why do the copies need to be restored? Why not present them as they are? NASA appears to have invited more controversy by adding enhancements to the original video, recovered from outside tracking stations. Why not present them as they were recorded?

Videotape was first introduced commercially in 1956 by the Ampex corporation. Later, in 1969, the same year as the moon landing, Sony introduced the EIAJ-standard, three-quarter-inch U-Matic series, the first videocassette system.

Two points of interest come to mind. One, why would a highly technical outfit such as NASA still be using an older video system standard for future space missions and satellite recordings many years later? Number two, to think that NASA was financially strapped to the point that they couldn't afford new videotape and had to resort to older videocassette tapes to record future missions on is also quite questionable.

This isn't your family scrounging to find a videotape to record your favorite TV show on. This is NASA. Their job is to explore our undiscovered universe and to document it. You don't take already documented archive footage and record over it. It is not part of a sane scientific protocol. To think that a monumental gaffe such as this could have occurred, over and over again with numerous tapes, is epic in its scope, not to mention outrageous in the temerity of its feeble excuse.

You are free to believe what you want to believe, but if you can't reasonably address the myriad questions being asked regarding the video anomalies in the moon landings, then in all fairness, it would be best not to propagate a poor excuse as the answer for them.

If you have never looked into the moon landing controversy, you are invited to take a look at the following productions that will raise more questions than you might ever have been aware of. Just maybe you will find the original story to be as unbelievable as the claim that the entire library of moon landing footage and the most significant event in mankind's history could be so easily recorded over.
